    Last year, they held the conference at the Eatontown Sheraton (as the conference is co-sponsored by Monmouth Medical Center). It was a really well organized event with a lovely buffet lunch (unfortunately, for me, consisting of little sandwiches that my gluten-free diet did not permit).

    HW???? Are you thinking of going??

    Hi Kim,

    Yes, considering going if I am able to make that drive. I would love to see Dr. Judy do a presentation in person.

    Thanks,

    I've added it to the calendar. Hmmm - I never think of checking the calendar - wish it would pop up at the top of the forum a week before (if wished) and the day of.

    Once the location etc is known, we can add the rest of the info there

    That would be cool, Kim.

    October - guess it's a little too early to set a time??? :)

    I would have given time suggestions but the Amtrak site is down for maintenance.

    Any other East Coasters wanna take the train to NJ? I could rent a minivan for the day and we could all converge on the conference Phoenix Rising style!!

    I wanna come, too. Okay, that won't be possible.

    If you all go (and what is Phoenix Rising style, anyway, Kim?), please take photos to share. Or give us a live webcast of your trip so we can all enjoy it with you.

    Oh that would be wonderful Sing!! The ride down from Boston is nice (even nicer on the Acela). From the NJ station to the conference is only about a 40 minute drive.

    I love this idea!! I hope you can make it!!

    Oh gracie...

    Wish you could come too. But we'll do our best to capture the event (that means our ride to the conference) with video or pictures.

    Phoenix Rising style = yodeling the whole way down the NJ State Parkway - wearing sunglasses, shower caps and g-suits

    Hi Sing,

    Oh please - that would be great if you can. It's still a long way away so who knows what will be going on by the time this happens? As long as I am dreaming, lets say that there have been breakthroughs/medications/holistic methods of treatment for our illness and we can meet anyway to drink martinis, laugh, and talk about all the great people we "met" on Phoenix Rising.

    Sigh,

    HW
