On behalf of the 2008 WestPac Local Arrangements Committee

WestPac, WestPac, we love you,
To travel to Bozeman, MT we want to do!
For the annual chapter conference in the west,
We can't wait to have you as our guest!

You'll learn about fiction and law, and sacred sites,
In discussing Indian Law, we'll reach new heights.
There'll be talk of areas without roads or rules,
You'll leave this session with many useful tools.

We open at a museum filled with cool dinosaurs,
Music, drinks, and tasty snacks behind those doors!
Willy WestPac has a slide show he wants you to see,
Featuring many of our libraries--of course, the star is he!

Friday night, join colleagues for dinner and winer,
Our keynote speaker married a mountain climber!
On Saturday, plan for disaster and promote your stacks,
Then on to Yellowstone with wolves at your backs.

There's lots going on you don't want to miss,
Our Montana WestPac Conference will be sheer bliss!
Register quickly--your form needs to be seen,
Don't delay--early deadline is September 15!

2008 Annual Meeting, Bozeman, Montana*

Registration, hotel and Bozeman information!
