NACE Experience 2011 in Reno!

This was my first NACE Experience, and let me tell you people, I'm hooked! If you missed this year, I'm told it was in the top ten best Experiences ever. Reno, and the surrounding area, is really cool. It's completely different than the East Coast, and you can tell it's right at the heart of the Gold Rush era. You feel like you're in the wild west with some of the towns we visited (especially Virginia City).

The Silver Legacy Hotel & Casino took great care of us! Between the clean and modern rooms, fantastic (and ABUNDANT) food every day, and the fact that I walked out of there $490 richer, they can be sure I'll be staying there every time I visit Reno. Major props to NACE Reno and NACE National for a fantastic job pulling off this years Experience, with nearly 1000 people in attendance!

Check out the pics and vids below, and I hope to see you all at Nace Experience 2012 in NOLA!
