SCGS Jamboree 2015 - DNA day is over

Today was a difficult day just because there were six sessions and the information can be challenging. But it was generally great.

 There were too many great topics and speakers to be able to fit everything in that I wanted to. Fortunately, almost half of the sessions were video taped, so I can purchase them and watch later. I forgot to bring a CD reader, so I can't download the syllabus. I need to remember that in the future. I did purchase the paper copy, so I can take notes on it. But I'd like to become proficient at taking notes on a digital copy of the syllabus. The disadvantage of that is that I can type with a regular keyboard; I'm not able to use the on-screen keyboard very effectively.

The lunch speaker and his video was very moving. Since I don't live in Southern California I don't know Chris Schauble from KTLA. But what a wonderful, moving story of finding his birth families.

I had dinner at George's Greek Restaurant, in the strip mall across from the Marriott. I thought about Amy Coffin while eating, since she introduced me to the place the first year I came to Jamboree. Thank you, Amy. I just wish you were here.

Now, it's time to start looking through tomorrow's presentations to decide which ones I'm going to attend.

If you are not at Jamboree, I hope you consider attending next year.
