Our venue was The Heartland, a retreat facility in Parkville, Missouri about a 10 minute drive from the Kansas City International airport. Some ladies arrived by plane, some drove, and a couple even took a train.
The grounds of The Heartland were beautiful. It was cloudy most of the time we were there, but the sun came out for us on Saturday, and made up for lost time.

This is a view of the room from the other corner (looking in the same direction), and at night. In the foreground are vendor tables that we kept set up permanently. When the vendors took off their covering tablecloths, it meant their shop was open. Lots of S.E.X. (Stash Enhancement Xperiences) available!

Because so many of our members were not able to attend, the Moderators of CQI have planned a giveaway for everyone to participate in this week (except those who attended the Retreat, LOL). We have three great prizes to give away.
