Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION labelled it a "pilgrimage") was quite successful, summer conventions would not become annual events for many years to come. After a lengthy period of such "hit-or-miss" outings, delegates to the 1923 convention at Salt Lake City's Hotel Newhouse passed this resolution: "Each year the association will meet at one of the 'scenic spots' of Utah so that the editors may ascertain first-hand what the state has to offer, that they may be better prepared to sell Utah, not only to the people of Utah but to the world at large." Suiting legislation to action, they held a summer meeting in Panguitch and Bryce Canyon. Among many sites which have been visited by UPA's members for summer conclaves are Brigham City, Beaver, Delta, Bear Lake, Vernal, Moab, Grand Canyon, Fish Lake, Price, Richfield, Cedar City, St. George, Zion National Park, Snowbird in Little Cottonwood Canyon, Park City, Aspen Grove, Tooele, The Homestead near Heber City, Provo, Como Springs and Ogden; Island Park, Idaho, Jackson, Wyoming and Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Those known to have been in attendance are listed on page 370 at the conclusion of this chapter. 320
