Yikes, that was supposed to say that I was NOT the person in charge. :-)

Hmmm, I have had leadership roles in events with several thousand people, but I was THE person in charge of the event.  I've organized fundraisers and appreciation dinners for a little over 100.

I've been to a couple of large women's ministry events in sold out sports venues, and conferences for work that were probably close to 2k.

I don't have anything on the calendar at the moment.

Last live music?  I recently attended a performance by several local bands, for a fundraiser.

The kids are taking me to see Sam Rotman, a pianist, on Mother's Day.  Then they are trying to talk me into going to see The Black Keys in September.

1. Never been in charge of any major event, unless we're going to scrape the bottom of the barrel with things like birthday and graduation parties.  I've been an integral part of planning our sewing machine geek fest in Lancaster every year for the past ...what .... 6?  8? years?  I'm not sure how long.  That's always fun :)

2. Largest conference would be the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo in Baltimore the past two years.  The next conference or similar event will be our sewing machine geek fest in June.

3.  Nothing really.  Concerts just don't do it for me.  Too loud and too crowded.  The closest I've gotten in recent memory is meeting my aunt and cousins at the Capitol for some of the summer holiday concerts held in DC.

4.  Nothing.  Again, they're too loud and crowded for my comfort.

In a few weeks at work.

Not sure. Dh and Dd are going to see 30 Seconds to Mars/Linkin Park/AFI this summer at Jones Beach. I am jealous and still trying to see if one of them wants to back out as I love me some Jared Leto. Laughing  lol

I didn't think to include my kids ... The Girl had her LAST EVER band concert last night. *sniff sniff*  It was momentous in many ways - The Girl and her friends are graduating, and one of their band directors (the woodwind instructor and middle/junior high band conductor) is retiring after 35 years -- 25 in this district.  That director also lost her husband to pancreatic cancer 2 weeks ago.

The Boy has his last concert of the school year on Tuesday.  He'll play at graduation too, but that's not really a concert.
