Since it was Charlottesville last year, it seems to me it should be held in a different location every year. Its not really fair to make the SWVA guys drive 4 hours every year and keep us Valley folks an hour away all the time. We should move it around the state to allow everyone to come and be a part of it.
That is why I am in favor of holding it in Martinsville. In light of Will Vehrs comment, it would be valuable to make a statement by holding our conference in Martinsville (and maybe even build some support to oust Roscoe Reynolds and Ward Armstrong). We should also hold it here to make it more available to SWVA bloggers. Many may not realize it, but we have quite a few in this part of the state. Bringing their input to the conference would be invaluable to our success.
