One year, a bunch of folks "flew in" from Ohio in a private plane (propeller), and had to arrange UPS shipment of all purchases before they left...
Same year, a bunch of folks came up from Red Hat and wandered around - they bought a lot of Sun ELCs (they were about $20 at the time), and seemed to spark an increased interest in running Red Hat on SPARC (up until then, the effort was very minimal)...
I've missed a few, but I've been to alot of them (maybe 20+) - always a good time, even the bad ones (like this year - rain, low turnout, few "interesting" items (aside from massive number of identically priced PC bits)...
