EAS 2003 Local Area Information
EAS 2003 will be the third time EAS has visited Maine. The first visit was in 1983, and the second in 1993. The first two visits were outstanding conferences and we are working hard to maintain the standards of the conferences before us.
The conference in 2003 is the first to be held in the mid-coast region of Maine. It will provide us with unique opportunities to bring you an outstanding vacation/conference combination. The site is the beautiful Bowdoin College campus right in the downtown area of Brunswick, Maine. Bowdoin College was established in 1794 and hosts an outstanding art museum, the Perry /MacMillan Arctic Museum, the Brunswick Music Theater, and plenty of physical activity sites like an Olympic size swimming pool and an indoor track.
We are steeped with history here in the mid-coast area and shipbuilding is one of the great traditions still carried on in many of the coastal towns. Robinhood Cove, Bristol, Sebago and others still build some of the finest boats to be had anywhere and a couple of hours up the road is the famous Old Town Canoe company. A trip to the Maine Maritime Museum and its rich history of wooden shipbuilding is one of the planned spouse's tours.
