ETS, Anyone?

Two days ago I received the 2005 Evangelical Theological Society Membership Directory in the mail. My name isn't listed. Why? Because once again I failed to renew my membership in time to be listed. I've since taken care of that minor technicality and just recently finalized my travel plans to attend the 57th Annual Meeting to be held in Valley Forge, PA.
A friend asked why I attend these gatherings and I thought of three reasons right off the bat:
  1. I get to catch up with friends I only see at ETS meetings.
  2. I enjoy listening to the papers and interacting with others working in subject areas in which I'm interested.
  3. Books, books, books! Christian publishers are out in force with drastic reductions off retail prices.
Are any other bloggers planning to attend? Please let me know and perhaps we can arrange to meet.

I was planning to attend. However, I may not be able to go now. I have a hotel (suite) reserved at a Hotel 1/2 mile from the convention center (It's only $117 total for Wednesday and Thursday nights). I also have a ticket to the banquet. Do you or anyone you know near these? I don't want them to go to waste. Let me know.

sorry, should say "need these", not "near these".

Thanks for the offer, Steve, but I'm good to go as far as accommodations go. I've already made alternative plans for dinner on the night of the banquet so I won't have any use for that either. I don't know of anyone else in need at the moment but should that change I'll have them contact you. Thanks again.
