I'd second Hal's sentiments and add big thanks to Ann and Kerry for the months of grinding work as conference co-directors that went into helping put together such a great three days. 

Congratulations, too, to the five honorees for 2017: Barb, Shelly, Kent, Laura, and Linda. 
Safe travels everyone!
