The conference, much like a Relay event itself, was fun and informal – on Saturday night, we were encouraged to dress “big,” and there were some hilarious costumes, three-foot-tall hairdos and what have you. (I wimped out, except for the bandana.)

WP_000106I made a joke on Facebook that of the 1,200 in attendance, there were six men. That was an exaggeration – but the ratio of women to men was huge, perhaps 10 to 1 or even more than that, so much so that the hotel had to temporarily convert one of the men’s restrooms near the ballroom into a women’s restroom.

I’ve always loved wandering through the Opryland Hotel’s huge and beautiful atriums. (One of my brothers once worked at the hotel, and one of his jobs was as a tour guide for the boat rides. A 10-minute boat ride, entirely inside the hotel. WP_000107That’s how big these atriums are.) At one time, and perhaps still, it was the largest hotel in the U.S. not attached to a casino. This was the first time I’d ever stayed there overnight. I was supposed to have an assigned roommate, and they even gave me his name when I asked the front desk while checking in. But my roommate never showed, and so I had the double room to myself.

Anyway, it was a fine conference, and has given me even more motivation to do my part to keep our local Relay event moving forward. I owe it to those who have passed on – like my mother – those who have survived, and those who are still in the middle of their battle with cancer.
