Northern Voice meet-up: Wow!

I’m attending the Northern Voice conference on Saturday. Last night I had an unexpected treat when I attended a meet-up organized by the NV gang at the Heritage Hall. Free yummy nosh and free beer paid for by – didn’t expect that. And the place was packed. I met some cool people and had a great gab with my friend Ian King.

Darren Barefoot, his wife and many others have been the driving force behind this annual event. Darren for his part looked really tired last night, and I can imagine how much work getting these events going can be.

I’m really looking forward to tomorrow’s event, and I have to acknowledge the extraordinary work of the organizers (and the cooks!) up front. Lee LeFever for his part gave a funny and charming talk about his round the globe year on the road.

A very good start indeed.
