|The Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center|
Nashville has changed a bit since then!
The convention was held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. This is a HUGE hotel and convention complex that frankly defies all description!

Jay mentioned that there were 17 different conventions going on simultaneously at the complex. It was so big many of the older attendees, writers and journalists all, complained about all the walking. Now, my brother is an avid runner and biker, so I doubt if he complained too much - but not all writers and journalists fall into that category.
I, for example, would have needed a motorized chair to navigate it... and maybe some oxygen, who knows?

Nashville is situated on the Cumberland River in north central Tennessee. The resort has made use of its proximity to the water to channel lots of water-themed recreation into the overall resort picture.
The result is fantastic.

Line dancing is fun.

Hmmm.... they don't sound very appetizing.
