This email from our Idaho colleagues spells out our Guinness World Record event very well. I also participated in this call. Mr. Rosen, who owns the hotel we are meeting in, is very excited about this event happening at his hotel and plans to have staff members from all of his properties in attendance. The overhead pictures will be taken from a drone which will carry the camera. I urge all who are attending convention to sign up for this exciting and fun event by going to www.nfb.org/gwr <http://www.nfb.org/gwr>.
