SABR 2012: in Twin CitiesPosted by Chris Jaffe
News from this week's SABR convention, at the annual business convention, SABR big wigs decided that the 2012 convention will be in Minnesota. Start planning, people. We can all stay at Aaron Gleeman's House That Blog Built.
(Wait, 2012? What about 2011? They decided that last year - it'll be in LA. The annual meeting is the only time they can really decide these things, and it helps if they can do the very preliminary planning work with a bit more than a year. Or something like that - at any rate, they always pick convention site locales two years in advance).
So now you know. And any Minnesota readers have plenty of lead time to prepare to abandon the state in advance.
