There is a whole schedule of social events that are organized around the meeting, mainly it's sightseeing. I do not know when people find the time for this, but I would guess the ones during the week-end are the most popular.
I don't think, I'll join one of these and I am not even sure if I will make it to the concert on Friday evening since I have to move to a new place. You might have heard of the Hospitality Club, anyway, that's how I'm going to stay over the week-end before I fly back home on Monday.
I somehow doubt that someone will show up and take over this blog to report from the second half of the meeting next week, so I think this blog will close already tomorrow...
