Did any other UPer's go to the Winston-Salem Air Show this weekend? I went Sunday and had a good time AFTER the NIGHTMARE of traffic and parking!!!

It took me approximately one hour to go from the Business 40/US52 interchange to a parking space. Parking was scarce and event-run parking was EXTREMELY poorly managed. I had told some friends in Hickory about this event and it took them 2 hours to go from the Village Tavern on Stratford Rd to the airport.

While I hope they keep running this event, something must be done to handle the crowds they got Sunday. I don't think they were expecting what they got and were poorly equiped to handle what they had, several parking lots had empty spaces but were blocked off from access.

I had very negative comments from my friends on the airport, the city, and the planning of this event. I hope they remedy this next year so I may feel comfortable inviting out of town folks in 2010. :angry:

Funny you should bring this up as I'm a part of the Winston-Salem version, Storybus, of this great project. We're actually going to be talking with the heads of StoryCorps when they're at town at Krankies soon. You can see the progress we're making on our mobile-recording studio that will be driven around town to record people's memories and stories here:

Nanotechnology group to hold national conference in Greensboro.

"In a news release, the foundation says that Greensboro’s Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering and RF Micro Devices are among the organizations that make this state a significant player along with UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University.

“No other region in the world is such a highly concentrated hub of MNT action,”

This is a big deal for Greensboro because the city and the area is beginning to become a hotbed for nanotechnology.

This is great. I did some research on RF Micro and it already employs a good number of people and it continues to grow. According to this article, its shares are growing Also, do you know the seating capacity of the new buildings?

My only hope is that another company in another city never aquires RF Micro and move the headquarters away from Greensboro. RF Micro is a great success story. It started out as a very small company in Greensboro in the 1990s and today it is an international company with facilities not only in Greensboro but in California, the UK and Asia.

not sure on the capacity.
