I don't want to seem like Scrooge, but talk of holding national 
convention in places like Boulder is just silly.  It just doesn't 
have the infrastructure to support a convention of our size.  We need 
a hotel that can hold 3000 or more people, and a nearby major 
airport.  Sure, Boulder would be lovely, but it ain't going to happen.
