[amsat-bb] AMSAT Symposium

When the Symposium cruise was proposed, part of the attraction was that
the venue was family friendly, likely resulting in a larger turnout than
other potential sites.

It was an experiment.  We wouldn’t know without trying it.  We had
volunteers to host the Symposium and the board was willing to try the
experiment.  I applaud them for doing so.

AMSAT had a good turnout and those that went enjoyed the exchange of
important and pertinent information.  Much of that information will be
shared in the Proceedings, in the Journal, and on social media.

Will the Symposium in 2017 be a cruise again?  Probably not, but the 2016
Symposium was a success by most measures.
