Event Junkies Introduction
Fellow Event Junkies...
Or, just people who were un-lucky enough to get sucked into a major event, and lucky enough to live to tell about it.
Below are some lists that I am maintaining of all the people that I have worked with, and some I haven't these past 30 years on some sort of major event. I like to collect as many names and e-mail addresses as possible, including people's event bio's from their past events.
I like maintaining and publishing these e-mail lists to help people stay in touch. I have made some wonderful life long friends in my travels, and I know that there are still quite a few people out there hanging in cyberspace. Let me know who they are, and I'll be happy to add then to the fun and games of my Event Junkies List!

One the possible benefits of being a part of the Event Junkies List, is that I send out email blasts to everyone on occasion passing on event related news. This might be a Job Posting when people or organizations are looking for experienced staff.
It might also be a Post Games Gathering of a sort. There was a great gathering of the 1996 ACOG Staff in June of 2006. More information can be found on the reunion website that I have created at www.ACOG1996.com
There was also a gathering of paid staff for the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Olympic this past February 9th. If anyone has pictures, I'd be happy to post the.
