" I've not seen any proposals like this, but it's possible I
have missed those threads.If so, I would appreciate
hearing about any "lessons learned" from previous attempts."
"Time at Tucson is at a premium, and the purpose of it is to get
around and see what's there. Tucson is an exciting place and
there is just too much to see. While some people may have
the luxury of time on their hands, with the Internet at everyone's
disposal, you'd have to design things to really be fun or
... text deleted ...
"By all means, go for it if you would like to be a force in the
community doing this! Just don't be surprised if the response
is attenuated due to all the competing things going on, after
all ... being in Tucson during the show is a pretty hands on
collecting, trading, swapping experience and that's
mostly why those from out of town make the pilgrimage."
A person could schedule such "educational presentations" like
"short courses" are scheduled at scientific meetings. Do not
schedule for during the meetings, but "premeeting," the day
before the Tucson Show starts, and post meeting, the day after
the Tuscon Show ends. That way the educational presentations
are not competing with the meeting and all people need to
do is arrived a day early or leave a day later to attend the
presentations. Also, along with educational presentations,
there is enough geology around Tuscon that a person could
offer geology field trips.
