    As stated.....
    They will be displaying and running demos of existing product lines, "new" and even conceptual equipment. Some of the ideas may only be on paper, so that's pretty cool in my book. The purpose is to get some serious feedback from the public and private sector network.

    So, I was thinking maybe a night out afterwards, if anyone is interested. I don't know anything around baltimore... so I was checking to see if anyone else is planning on spending the night. I could use a good two days off :)

    I have to check.....but our local airport Chicago/Rockford International just announced service to BWI. Ridiculous low initial kick-off pricing. Flying direct out of my own city, not having the headache of taking a 60 minute bus to O'hare makes this very tempting. Not sure if service will be ready by Apr 9........

    Damn, service doesn't start until 6/1 then it's Monday's and Friday's only. Guess I'll check O'Hare, but probably going to be a bust.
