    One other observation. The Friday attendence was nearly 25% less than the Sat & Sun figures! I think that says volumes about the committment level. They also announced that next year's convention will be 3 days (God willing of course).

    I wonder how long it will be before the Friday is dropped? Obviously it must continue to be profitable for them or they would have tossed it a long time ago. I know they get some pretty sweet deals on various convention venues and that the cost to rent some of these arenas is offset by the promised revenue to the convention city in terms of business generated and the resulting tax revenue. Does anyone have any idea how that works?

    I don't think they can drop Friday. If they do, then it is the same as a circuit assembly and people are less likely to view it as a big deal, drive across the state or whatever, spend money on a motel ect. ofo

    "Anyway, they talked about 1975 and while the organization still took no responsibility, the speaker said that even the apostles had wrong expections regarding dates."

    That reminds me, my gf said "they apologized a little for 1975." We spoke briefly about how they blamed it on the flock, "some have thought..."

    definitely quite a few new brothers gave talks so not the same old load of speakers

    If I remember correctly they said something about error of 1975 year in the 80 or 81 WT. I would have to look it up for actual quotes. GB is never wrong so they never really have to apolagize for anything they do since it's always the rank and file misreading the GB's direction
