Unfortunately, I never had the chance to submit a proposal to do a presentation on TNG, so I did a poster session instead. It went SO well... first, I realized how much I need to keep doing presentations on the topic (I did it last year at LLC4 in DC). But, it would appear our efforts are working. Right now there are eight TNGs that I know of - 2 in NY (TES, GMSMA - I co-chair both), DC, Boston, Maine, Arizona, South New Jersey, and Central Texas. After this weekend, I am going to be assisting folks in Seattle, Denver, Ohio, and possibly Kansas and Oklahoma to start up TNGs. We are also excitedly awaiting the debut of one in Los Angeles.
The need for outreach and a safe place for younger adults interested in SM is becomming more and more apparant. I feel like a proud father, watching his children blossom. Happy happy joy joy!!!
In addition, I did lots of amazing networking... met some people who can assist me a whole lot. Along with seeing people close and dear to my heart (A - You will ALWAYS be my Temptress...), and had some incredible play (definetely going down to DC soon for a weekend...).
All in all... two thumbs up!!! Well... OK... a few other things up as well....
