The 2012 International Fragile X Conference

I get a lot of people searching for this! If you haven’t found the information already, let me give you the deets1.

What: The 2012 International Fragile X Conference
When: July 25 – 29, 2012
Where: Intercontinental Miami in, where else? Miami2

If you’re curious about what you can expect you can read these semi-coherent posts I wrote about the 2010 International Fragile X Conference in Detroit.

I had no clue!
Apparently this isn’t going to just write itself.

And these much more useful posts by the lovely Kristie Meyer3Β of Life With My X-Men:

What I learned at the Fragile X Conference, Part 1

So who’s coming to MIAMI??? You’ve got a year to prime your liver! I’ll scope out the very best bar seats online soon πŸ˜‰

  1. Yes, I just said “deets” I am a huge hoser. []

    I’m coming, but might be bringing the whole fam, so I’m not sure how much time I’ll be spending on a barstool! I’ll be on one in spirit though.

    We considered bringing Monkey, I mean, can you go to FLORIDA without the kid? But we can’t go to all the conference sessions we want and have him there. He wouldn’t sit through them and he wouldn’t be able to stay all day in the childcare area either…he’d be wayyy too stressed. Someday we’ll bring him πŸ™‚

    Nice! The hotel looks very swank. I want to do a raffle, whoever wins gets to pick someone to get dunked in that fountain in the lobby…no one wants to be the dunkee though.

    But it’s way more fun (for someone) if she wins.
