We'll also have a spouse & kids special rate to attend the Friday night banquet, and the banquet talk should be of general interest to everyone (no i dont know what its gonna be yet - any offers?). I dont think we've specifically planned family events in the past (others chime in?) but you can certainly post messages here to find out who else is coming with families, kids ages, interests, etc.
I want to bring my family but I have two children that will not be able to attend the sampling events. Do others bring their entire family? If so, what does the rest of the family do when the group heads out to sample?
Do the wives and children get together and participate in dry activities as a group?
