Hello from Durango this time. Continuing on the Pat and Sky tour of Colorado, Pat and I held a Convention Briefing and Delegate Training in Durango this past Sunday. We missed the snow on both sides of the visit by days so we had a clear blue sky for the flight, which of course was gorgeous. Speaking of skies — the first thing I noticed when I got off the plane, was that the sky there was even bigger than it is in Denver. It’s a beautiful part of the state.Before heading over to the Durango Community Rec Center, Pat and I stopped for a quick breakfast (well, it was breakfast for me because I can eat huevos rancheros any time of day) at the Brickhouse Cafe. Very cute little place on Main Street. I think we had our biggest crowd yet for this briefing — attendees from three counties. And of course once again a good mix of electeds, activists and folks just interested in hearing about the upcoming year. This time we had many more technical questions about the caucus process; a product I think of having more activists and precinct captains in the room. We also had a couple good suggestions for future Convention-related events around the state. All in all it was very productive and fun day. I even had time to do a little shopping on Main Street and take in a beautiful sunset before I headed back to Denver.
