The NJGC hosted a NST Weekend in April 2000 with Curt Golden and Frank Sheldon in attendance along w/ a number of other long time Crafties working in both the kitchen as well as instructions. The was a sort of trial or test run for the L1/L2+ course that we hosted later that same year in September 2000. Attached are my personal notes from the NST weekend itself and, more importantly, my notes from a NJGC Prep Meeting we held a week before the NST weekend. These notes, looking back now, show a small piece of the planning, logistics, and effort that went into planning/organizing such an event. Lots of work, but also, many acts of heroism to ensure the event came off w/o issues. A good team doing good work in a small amount of time.
