It's on my calendar as a strong possibility. I'll ask my better half to chime in too, as she is also a photographer.
Good on you, Bill, for reinstating the event, and the idea to go back to the original format is great. The less arrangements, the less for you to worry about, and the more time you can have to hang out and do some shooting too, and not just be busy worrying about everybody else. I know that in 2008 I came mostly to hang out with you and everybody else that was there. Demos and events are great, but certainly not necessary among creative minds and peers. Conversation and exchange is more than enough.
