For those attending the Spring Meeting in Albany on Saturday, May 15th, there is an optional tour scheduled for Sunday, May 16th, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The Albany Convention and Visitors Bureau has arranged a tour highlighting some of the interesting sites around Albany for us—please see the itinerary below. As far as cost, you will need $5.50 for the Flint RiverQuarium group ticket rate and money for lunch. A Subway is only a short distance from the Bridge House, as well as Riverfront Barbeque. I look forward to seeing you in Albany!
