Jake just brough me a mug

he’s screaming “Daddy’s Coffee!” over and over as he brings my plastic yellow mug to me. Just under the old OA logo are the words :

“Old North State Conclave 1985”

My first conclave, almost 20 years past. Fitting I plan on going to the 2005 ONS Conclave….

Note: fixed a typo where “1985” was “1995” – my fat fingers bad

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    I love conclaves. It’s been awhile since I’ve been to one. The ceremonies team I coached for Uwharrie won the ceremonies competition at the 91 ONS Conclave. It was a proud moment for me. I’m not as involved in the OA here in Illinois as I was back there. Just ddon’t seem to have the time anymore. I’m on the Boy Scout Roundtable staff and that seems to be all i can manage these days.
