|A woodworking reception (typical).|
The opening day, Thursday, August 2nd is a quite day with just registration and a welcome reception from 5:30 to 6:30. I think we’re going to change that.
After the welcome reception, we’re going to have an MWA get together. Hopefully it’ll be like the fantastic event Nik Brown pulled together at WIA11.

- It’s been about 15 years since I was last in New Paltz. All I remember about the place is that nothing is shinny . . . except your future. Does anyone know the area well enough to recommend a bar/pub/restaurant for our Thursday night get together? Would anyone be willing to set it up?
- If our get together is anything like the evening activities at WIA, then we’ll be out late, and in no condition to drive. That’s why I’d like to suggest that we all stay in walking distance of the college and location of the get together. Based on a quick scan of Google hotel finder, the 87 Motel New Paltz seems like a decent choice, but it’s on the opposite side of the through-way (and it’s site says it’s not available those dates), so it might be a bad choice for walking. Again, if anyone is familiar with the area and can make a recommendation for us, it’d be appreciated.
Thanks for the help. Let’s have a discussion in the comments below. I’ll post again when there’s some consensus and a plan.
