. If you are going to invest the money to attend I advise you to join a team. You do not want to pay out all that money on travel and hotels to be on the outside looking in. We are still accepting new members if you are interested. When you are on a team it gives you a place to eat, party, and relax. You then venture out to visit some of the other 250 booths making friends and contacts to come back when they are parting. We will have Brethren from all over the U.S. and some from other countries. Don't worry you don't know anybody right now. Most of our out of town members joined the same way and are now fast friends with one another. Most have continued to return year after year to be with one another at MIM. If you want more information contact my son Neil at our wed site or my self. No matter what you decide please stop by our booth and say hello.
