The AOPA tent had several good discussions most mornings, the Federal Pavilion was well stocked with reading material and some good speakers. Greg Feith, formerly from the NTSB being one of them. I also got to walk the line with a team of homebuilt judges for a day. While I didn’t get to actually judge, it was fun and a learning experience to observe them and ask questions where appropriate.
