We took the Riverton tour this morning.  Wow! so many demonstrators!  We opted out of going through the Legacy Room because of the line, but saw all the other areas.


Look at this awesome card using Swallowtail and Ex Libris that was on one of the demo support desks.

After the tour we tried to eat somewhere else for lunch, but wound up back at the Blue Lemon…we just love that restaurant.  Then, our first general session.  A singer from the Voice sang our theme song for this year.  We got our bags (I’ll post a photo tomorrow), and Shelli told stories about the journey to 25 years.  Ronald McDonald showed up to share his thanks for the difference we have made in volunteering and donating to Ronald McDonald house over the years.

Then, we had our opening social party in the Gathering Place.  We had dinner in there, and then participated in breaking a Guinness world record for most cards sent from a single location at the same time (in 3 hours).  There was an official counting the cards.  We waited in an extremely long line to do it, but we DID break the record.

I’m not sure of the final count, but this ticker was changing by the second.

Then, I went to the Recognition Room to stamp achievement cards to post on walls in the hallway marking annual awards for everyone earning one or more awards.  I’m so excited to have earned the incentive trip this year.  It’s a western Caribbean cruise on Royal Carribbean’s Allure of the Seas.  Right when I was about to pin these to a wall, I ran into my friends, Twila & Suzie, and had to talk for what was probably an hour.  They actually turned out the lights in the Salt Palace, so I pinned my cards and headed back to the hotel.

More fun tomorrow…we’ve just started.
