Meh. You describe it as a BIG party. So, there's likely to be tons of people trying to get time with the big-wigs. It doesn't sound like quality access to those people for you to voice your concerns.

I'd go on vacation and ride... my $0.02

Would going to the party allow you to network and further your career?
If not, go on vacation and ride!

Talking heads vs. bike riding?.... Asked on a bike forum. There's only one answer, and there should never be any doubt.

They are most likely there to get support from the organizing groups. Go to Tahoe and have fun.

Hmmmm.... lessee..... Listening to self important gas-bags prattle on about how vital they are to whatever cause will keep them feeding at the public trough on one hand, a nice vacation riding around one of nature's crown jewels on the other.

Hmmmm....... I dunno........

Ha ha! It seems like I'll be heading off to Tahoe.

Knowing me, if I go, all I will be doing is confronting certain people with questions on California's health care system and why citizens have to suffer vs those who aren't.

Yeah. Maybe I better keep away from all of that. Or else I'd get so stressed, my heart rate will send ME to the hospital.......
