We should have something I think, even its the "Hello, my name is:____"
stickers. And we should get everyones email, so we can send them the links
to talks/presentations when we get them online later. I think we should do
white ones for attendees and maybe a colored one for
speakers/presenters/volunteers (maybe red?), so if someone has question, you
ask someone wearing a red badge. For the giveaway for Noahs book, how about
names of attendees to his talk into a hat and he draws the name?

what time sat morning can we get into the building to start setting up and
checking things out? What all will need to be done to "setup" the morning

Also, anyone know of a spot where we can get together the night before for a
social of some sort? Is Conway dry? If not, a casual place with tasty
beverages would be nice.
