  • Because of the closure of the Ramada, convention activities will be held at the Columbus Convention Center.  Due to the higher costs of this new venue, the convention will now be 2 days, Fri March 13 – Sat March 14.

Convention Theme for 2014:  omnia mutantur, nihil interit, ‘everything changes, nothing persishes.’  The quote is from Book 15 of Ovid’s ‘Metamorphoses’ during the lengthy speech of Pythagoras.  He asserts that the soul does not perish but rather enters a new body.
