Thank you to everyone who organized, volunteered, attended, sponsored and publicized the 2014 Transcending Boundaries Conference! We had an incredible conference, between our diverse workshops, keynote speaker Wintersong Tashlin, dancing, gaming and socializing. Photos to come!
The website has been down for a bit this week due to a hosting issue. It should be back online very soon.
We've been making some changes to the website and e-mail lists that will make things easier going forward. This includes updating Joomla! and getting some of the latest tools to go with it. We're also changing how the announcement list works.
Its hard to believe we're only 5 days away! Since we're in a new location this year, doing some different events and expecting a bunch of people who've never been to TBC before, we thought we'd give a few tips and reminders on what to pack for the weekend.
Friday night is our private pool party! The pool will be available for our exclusive use from 10 to midnight If you're planning to join us for this (and we hope you will) make sure to bring swim wear, goggles, whatever you need to enjoy the pool.
Saturday night is our dance/costume party. Costumes and creative attire are encouraged. If you're like many of us, you've got that thing hanging in your closet that you bought because it was really cool but its also totally impractical; this is an ideal time to break it out.
Throughout the weekend, we will be operating a clothing swap so bring the clothes you don't want and go home with the clothes you do want!
We do have several organizations tabling with us who will be either selling items or handing our information. In addition, when you check in you'll be receiving a registration packet from us. A small bag to carry these items around can make your life a while lot easier.
Weather reports are currently predicting highs between 45-55 during the conference. It IS spring in New England so its best to assume it will rain at least once. Keep that in mind, especially if you plan to leave the hotel in search of food. The hotel will do its best to keep temperatures comfortable indoors. If you are a person who gets cold easily, you'll probably want a sweater or jacket you can throw on while you're in workshops just in case.
Happy packing and we'll see you in 5 days!
