Pretty low attendance event-would have loved to see more from the park and rec. department there.  Run of the mill workshop, slightly adapted for the small crowd--very discussion based.  Good location for a workshop if more are dedicated to coming.

We stayed with Courtney and Nick after the event--great hosts and a guest bedroom/bathroom/etc.
