This is scary!
Somebody in Denver please tell us if the hotel will provide
shuttle service. I had a bad experience with a cabbie in Detroit. I had
missed the shuttle and didn't want to wait another two hours for it to
return and took a cab, the driver taking the longer (scenic?) route which
The January issues of former AIS Bulletins used to go into greater
detail about the convention (garden previews), transportation, etc. But
the last few years just the bare essentials have been given. I heard some
people at Detroit say their first day (Tuesday) was wasted because there
was nothing for them to do as they were not interested in section
meetings. Had more details been available they would not have come so
early. They had already made reservations with the hotel and airline
before the convention materials arrived, having used the dates in the
Bulletin as a guide.
