By Walt Wiltschek, National Youth Cabinet Advisor
  1. See the tender, heartwarming story of when “More Than” met “The Eye” for the very first time.
  2. Colorado is virtually the same shape as Spongebob Squarepants (minus the appendages).
  3. Nearby Rocky Mountains and iconic Colorado State Ram statue make ideal backdrops for jumping photos.
  4. Enjoy the wacky dramatic stylings of Ted & Co., the improvisational music skills of Ken Medema, and a veritable cornucopia of interesting and inspiring speakers. Yes, a veritable cornucopia.
  5. One of those speakers, Jarrod McKenna, comes from Australia. Who can resist an Australian accent? And maybe he’ll bring a wallaby.
  6. When your youth advisor tells you to “take a hike” at NYC, it’s a good thing. The mountains await!
  7. Rumor has it that the NYC coordinators will make their grand entrance into the arena by being shot out of a cannon (then again, rumors are so often wrong).
  8. Everything tastes better at 5,000 feet.
  9. Well over 100 workshops, abundant recreation options, dozens of service projects, thousands of seats to choose from in Moby Arena---basically enough fantastic choices to make your head spin.
  10. NYC registration: $450 (or $425 if you register before February 15!). Transportation to NYC: $10 to $1,000 (depending how you come and how far). A week with several thousand of some of the coolest Brethren people in the world: Priceless.
