    There is usually a room where some spouses work on their own hobbies
    Sewing, knitting, painting carving etc

    if the weather is nice can sit by the lake and watch the alligators and birds..

    As of Tuesday they were still taking registrations.
    So sign up quickly if you want to go. I think it is a terrific demo line up.

    I once saw Judy show off at the end of demo she finished early by turning a production spin top in like 20 seconds.
    Be sure to see a couple of Keith gotschall’s demos.

    Not much to do except for the woodturning. If your wife likes to drive on 2 lane roads and you have a good GPS she can go to Mt Dora, a village a few miles away. Lots of shops and restaurants to browse and spend money. Look in guide books for the area.

    Nothing in the actual area of the symposium.
