My Sunday (6/7/15) Classes at SCGS Genealogy Jamboree

We are going to the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree next week (June 5-7) in Burbank, and I've been trying to decide on the classes I want to attend.  I took a survey several weeks ago and identified the classes, but I don't remember what I selected - I thought they sent me an email, but I can't find it.

So I used the SCGS 2015 mobile app to select my classes, and now they appear in the "My Schedule" part on the mobile app.

Here is the screen shot from the "My Schedule" tab on the app on my iPhone for Sunday, June 7:

It's a little cramped in portrait mode, and more spread out in landscape mode.  At least it tells me, in a cryptic fashion, where to go, who I'm hearing, and the topic.

My selected classes for Sunday are:

*  8:30 a.m.:  SU005:  "Family History Adhesive: Science and Simple Tech 4 Binding Families" by Janet Hovorka, in Hollywood and Burbank room.

*  10:00 a.m.:  SU018:  "Getting Even More Out Of Your Subscription" by Crista Cowan, in Pavilion 1

*  1 p.m.: SU023:  "Tips and Tricks for Using FamilySearch" by Eric Provard, in Pavilion 1

I have to skip the last class time on Sunday (2:30 p.m.) because we go over to the Subway and get sandwiches for dinner to take on the train home, which leaves at 4:25 p.m. 

 Those are my choice right now, they may change on the day.  Then there is the Exhibit Hall which is open all day, so I may forgo a class and cruise the exhibits, taking pictures and talking about vendor products.  Of course, I may meet friends, readers and geneabloggers in the hallways and have a chat and miss a class.  Who knows - I usually play it by ear.  My goal is to attend at least 50% of the selected classes each conference so I feel like I get my registration money's worth.
