I'm looking forward to attending again this year. It's a great few days of education, networking, and stocking up on supplies. I'd highly recommend this Event to everyone!
It's hard to say how long it should take to do a rebalance, it depends on your skill level. If you watch the YN vids, you'll see how fast an experienced tech can do it. For me, it can be anywhere from 30 min. to 1 hr. 15 min.
