2012 Minnesota Storm Chasing Convention

Registration has opened for the 2012 Minnesota Storm Chasing Convention, organized by Michael Stanga and Dean Baron.  It will take place on Saturday, January 14, 2012 at the Best Western Kelly Inn in Plymouth, Minnesota.  I decided to skip this year’s convention, but I will be attending in 2012 as the keynote is none other than Reed Timmer.  He is perhaps the most recognized and known storm chaser due in part to his appearance in Discovery Channel's weekly show, Storm Chasers, aired during the fall.

Tickets are $35 per person and are said to be limited to a first come, first serve basis.  All proceeds will go to charities assisting tornado victims.

I attended the inaugural event at St. Cloud State University in 2010, and enjoyed it a lot as Dr. Josh Wurman was the keynote of this conference.  Interesting and informative.  With a couple years under it’s belt now, I suspect that January’s conference will be the best yet!
