This year for Youth Conference the Carson City Stake combined with the two Reno Stakes for a combined stake Youth Conference. The conference was held at UNR and the kids stayed in the dorms and the activities, classes and dances were held in the new student union building on campus.
There were over 600 kids in attendance. They had a popular EFY speaker and a former member of the Seatle Seahawks who was a returned missionary from Russia. They had two dances and a "quilting" service project meeting. Food was provided for in the dorms.
It was quite a walk from the Dorms where the sleeping and eating arrangements were to the Student Union building. So the organizers wanted to position "security people" along the way. It was to help the kid navigate to the right place, keep them from wandering off to the wrong places and provide security for the kids at night. I was asked to be one of the security. I was positioned outside the new library on the way to the Student Union building. So all the kids past me coming and going to the activities. Everything seemed pretty well organized and it was very entertaining watching the girls try to navigate the walk while trying to learn how to walk in poor fitting stiletto heels and skirts blowing in the wind. Most of them gave up on the heels and went barefoot. Our ward wasn't so well organized and Thea ended up making arrangements for kids luggage and transportation. Her leaders said she was a good leader. She was mostly annoyed.
