Notable events:

Karen got us our first shower, and our first lobster night.

Marc got the conference extended from Friday to Sunday to Friday to Monday.

Marc also got us an extra 10 spaces from the Arts Conference, making it the single largest conference at 50.

Working with Jennifer and Brian, Cathy Schellenberg got the conference doubled to LRA I & LRA II.

Also year infamous Brady Bunch skit was performed in the Talent Show.
Cast: Mike B.-Gordon, Carol B.-Meg, Bobby B.-Will, Cindy B.-Jody, Greg B.-Matthew, Jan B.-Jennifer, Marcia B.-Linnea, Peter B.-Mike, Tiger B.-Conrad, George Bush/Tony Codding-Alec.

Gordon's conference was the year Stephanie and Dusty combined two popular conference events into one with Scavenge for Talent.

Abby changed the name from YAC to LRA.

The first two conferences were Jennifer's (it started in 1983), the next was Ann's, then Dusty, Brian, then Chip, then Mike, then Karen.

One theme got used in two different years, and I think Mike's was "Education."

Gordon was Mike's theme speaker. Marc had Monty and Pam for theme speakers.
