As soon as registration opened for Netroots Nation 2014 in Detroit, I plunked down the "early bird" fee. After all, I'd attended all but one of these events, and the one I'd missed was still called YearlyKos.
When I signed up, I was looking for employment. Were I still unemployed, I'd definitely be in Detroit for NN14. However, in April I was hired by the Washington State Department of Health, as the epidemiologist for their Prescription Monitoring Program.
It's a great job, and I'm enjoying myself immensely (even though it's a commute of 70 miles each way). But as a newbie in DOH, I haven't yet accrued very much vacation time. And the hours I have earned will be used for going to my 25th consecutive SABR convention (I may be a progressive activist, but I'm also a sabermetrician).
So... I have this NN14 registration in hand. The current registration rate is $365 + $9.95 for handling. My cost back in June of last year was $200.87. I want to sell you my registration.
Please send me a Kosmail, and we can transfer my registration to you (after you've paid me, of course). You'll have a great time at NN14! Be sure to go to BiPM and CSM's Cheers & Jeers dinner.
UPDATE (9am, July 8): The registration has found a good home. Thanks to all for your interest in taking it off my hands.
Once again, I hope y'all have a great time in Motown! I'll miss the numerous buddies I've accumulated over the years. Hopefully, I'll be back next year in ???????.
