Mapquest says 1 1/2 hrs for me. Although, it's to early for me to really commit to going, I may be there. (if I try to plan going, it won't happen. if I spontaneously say hey lets go... I'll be there. lol)

How old are they kids? Wont be an issue if they can sit still and/or quietly entertain themselves during the speakers. I think students get free admission.

Well, tomorrow is out for me.
The baby has been fighting a cold all week and if that wasn't enough, my daughters cheer coach called to say they would be doing their make-up class tomorrow. (they missed class last week) Classes won't be over til 1. That doesn't give me enough time to get there by 2.
