Opening General Session - just awards?

I'm trying to plan for my trip to Conference. I suppose I really ought to get that registration form sent, eh? :rolleyes: As I'm looking at the Agenda on CC, I see that the Opening General Session is tagged as Awards Night. Is this all that happens during this session?

I seem to recall from last year that the only thing that happened during this session was recognition and awards. I don't recall any announcements or news being given. Am I remembering correctly?

If this is the case, then I am likely to skip it. I am receiving no recognition or award.I am going alone, have no team, and my upline is attending Conf 2 anyway. I'm not even staying in one of the Conference Hotels since I'm going alone. I will be staying with my sister, who lives in the suburbs.

I'd hate to miss something important, but watching person after person going across the stage quite honestly doesn't put the chop in my food chopper, if you know what I mean. ;)

I tend to agree with you. Considering your situation, you probably won't miss much. I have been known to skip TPC night. It's a great experience for first time conference attendees...to see what is possible with PC, anyone can earn trips and awards, etc. A great way to "see the big picture". One drawback to skipping, though, I skipped the year that Jay revealed his new book, Come to the Basement. Books were given out, Jay signed the books, and my husband had a quote in it!!! :( I was lucky that one of my friends snagged an extra book for me :)

This is Doris' big welcome speech night. I don't remember it being the big awards night, I think that happens the next day. I could be wrong. Someone out there is younger than me and/or has a better memory. Or, maybe they are changing up the schedule to keep us on our toes.
