Right now it looks like the next Warm Glass Weekend conference will be in Corning, New York. The dates are tentatively set for Saturday September 18 to Monday, September 20, 2004.

Sounds great...SIGN ME UP :)
We'll have to figure out when everyones birthdays are and have a big cake. Everyone should bring their calenders to be signed by the daring poster boys and girls :lol:
Brad...are you looking for any suggestions of classes people would like to have?
Can't wait to see everyone again.

Can't wait for more information on this weekend. It would be great to actually meet some of the people who have helped me so much on this site.

The Elmira/Corning Regional Airport is about 15-minute away by car.

Albany, Syracuse, Buffalo?

Where IS the closest airport?

If they are puddle jumper airports, getting there could be an exercise in creative planning.

Corning sounds cool to me.

Elmira is the closest... there are regular flights through Pittsburgh

An alternative would be to fly to Newark (New Jersey) and rent a car or car pool. Corning, NY is about 65 miles from Newark.

Corning is really in the middle of nowhere, on the Pennsylvania border. The closest Southwest Airline city is Buffalo. Pittsburgh and Philadelphia make a triangle with Corning. Check out maqpuest for maps and driving directions.

I found an airfare to Elmira for $270 (from Portland ME). The alternative for me is a 9.5 hour drive each way. Tough decision. If I drove with several other people, it might make the drive look attractive. I am thinking that we need an extra day to see the Corning museum after the conference.
