NYWC Pittsburgh - Here we go.

Today was the first day of the National Youthworkers Convention here in Pittsburgh, PA.

I am working the show this time around, helping to run the booth for LiveWorship Software, which a few cool guys I know came up with back in the day...

Alan and I started the morning bright and early by attending some company mandated identity theft training, which we had both previously missed and had to have by law.

It was interesting and informative...

We then proceeded with some crazy gathering up of things, packing (read cramming) the van and split Chillicothe for the great state of Pennsylvania.

Two Sam's Club's, one Olive Garden, one gas station, and a few hours later we were pulling into the David L. Lawrence Convention Center here in Pittsburgh.

It took us a couple of hours to setup the booth, then Alan and I grabbed some dinner at August Henry's across the street from the hotel. I had an amazing pepperoni and cheese stromboli. Amazing I tell you.

The show floor was open from 8:30 - 10:30 pm. Traffic for us was pretty slow, but we did have some good conversations. I love it when avid LiveWorship fans stop by the booth just to tell us they like our product.

Here is a (bad) photo of our booth this year. It looks much better in person, I promise. I will attempt to get better photos tomorrow.

We are right across the aisle from Ugly Mug coffee, who has free samples of great available in their booth... This is either going to be very good for me, or very bad for me before the weekend is out.

While Marko was making his rounds on the show floor he stopped to say "Hey". Always great to run into him.

Looking forward to tracking down and catching up with quite a few more of my twitter friends tomorrow.

Hopefully more to come.

Roogles out.
