DAY 5 -- IBM Convention

Category:   Posted by: C. DENNIS SCHICK

 The last day of the 2018 I.B.M. Convention began with the invitation-only Merlin Breakfast. Attendees have to be members of the Order of Merlin -- I.B.M. members who have been members for 25 consecutive years (Order of Merlin), 35 years (Order of Merlin Shield), 50 years (Order of Merlin Excalibur), and 60 years (Order of Merlin Excelsior). 


This was Day Three for the Big Three. Also it was the Lance Burton Teen Scene 3. 


Three lectures took place, back-to-back: by Larry Wilson (11:30 am), Patrick Martin (1-2 pm), and Jeff McBride (3-4 pm).


After a break for dinner, the I.B.M. Contest Awards were announced during a special Awards Program at 7 pm, followed by the Grand Finale Show, at 8 pm. After the finale evening show, there  was a Farewell Party for people to thank each other, as well as to say goodbyes, since many people would drive off or fly off the next morning. 


One last event was a Jeff McBride Special Workshop, which was an extra cost event, at 11:45 pm.


A good time was had by all. See you next year, in Phoenix, July 10-13. Circle your calendars.
