Attending MLW 2013 in Huntsville? Thinking about what to pack?
To help you decide what to bring, here is a direct quote from RISC Staff, “Huntsville is in the South, but not South Beach.” (Attributed to Gloria Miller)
Well, from the West Coast come some interesting suggestions. “Bring your pashminas; those Workshop rooms can be chilly!” Another comment: “I’m bringing my 60th Anniversary tiara! And of course adding a holiday pin! So 2013!!”
Folks in Huntsville say “layers work best.” You’ll want to go outside in the evenings….Huntsville really puts on a great Tinsel Tree show in the Von Braun Center, Big Park Area.
The Welcome Reception and Sponsor Appreciation in the Info/Expo area is scheduled from 6-8 pm Monday evening, Have some favorite holiday socks, a tie that plays “Jingle Bells” or a great holiday sweater, and don’t forget head gear — wear to the Reception and thank our great sponsors. Holiday hats are good, too! Who doesn’t have a “Santa Hat?” Look for the person with the military-oriented Santa Hat…..if you can notice him. This will take place in the South Hall, Ballrooms 2 & 3.
Are you a First Time Attendee? The Workshop hosts invite you to a special ” Meet and Greet” briefing with the Military Libraries Division Board Members. Learn about how to get the most out of your experience. This will be Monday, 4:30-5:30 pm in the Embassy Suites Bar area. Casual “Holiday wear” is suggested.
The 60th Anniversary Dinner at the US Space and Rocket Center on Tuesday evening, while not REALLY formal (ball gowns and Tuxes – optional) can be a little bit dressy. Diamonds are preferred! Bling, bling!
See you soon in Huntsville!
