Welcome to the 2013 Utah State Bar Summer Convention in Snowmass Village, Colorado!
I am so pleased to announce that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia will be our keynote speaker at our 2013 Summer Convention in Snowmass, Colorado. Justice Scalia was appointed by President Ronald Reagan to the U.S. Supreme Court of the United States in 1986. We are honored to have him speak to us.
In addition to Justice Scalia’s visit, we have scheduled informative programs and exciting activities for our 2013 Summer Convention. Snowmass/Aspen, Colorado something new and different for our Bar members in a charming mountain setting! With an Ice Age Discovery Center for the kids, golf, fly fishing, paragliding, four-wheeling, hot air ballooning, and river rafting for attendees along with affordable lodging and great food, there is so much to like about this venue?
In October 2010, while excavating for the expansion of the Ziegler Reservoir, a juvenile Columbian mammoth was discovered. The dig that followed uncovered more mammoths, a Jefferson ground sloth (think Manny and Sid from Ice Age, the movie), mastodons, gigantic ice age bison, a small deer, and an ancient camel. A website describing the find is www.snowmassiceage.com.
You are going to love this new venue. See the options at right to see the schedule, the affordable lodging, and learn about all the activities available for every family member and costs. See you in Snowmass!
