2- Portable umbrella      you know at least it will "spit" alot in Seattle

3- Yoga mat and yoga clothes      JoAnne Marshall will be leading a session on Sunday morning at 7:30 again this year.   will be prizes.

4. Lite jacket or sweaters or sweatshirt       weather in 70s during the stay and 50s in the evening

5. Comfortable walking shoes      You must make it to the Market to see the fish tossing.

6. Note paper       Program only offers a couple of blank pages at the back

7. A Full Dance Card     Plan your breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and breaks with your special people.  

8. Chargers for all your equipment

9. Funds set aside for the MLA Scholarship Booth

10. Online Meeting Planner completed with all your meeting goings-on

11. Plan to pick up an extra tote bag or bring an extra to take home all the vendor giveaways and things purchased at the Scholarship Booth

Safe travels all.
