I'm in and would love to help plan, I'm the op of the Texas meet post. I think end of Sept is a good time. Let me know what I can do to help

txvjc 07-19-2011 06:37 PM

mmm...Weinberger's is so good...used to be on of my favorite places to go when I lived in Arlington...it'd almost be worth the flight to have some...and Dan (the owner) is a great guy

WebmasterKathy 07-19-2011 09:22 PM

I've never tried Weinberger's, it sounds great!

Trying to picture Pete in Texas... :rotfl:

Walter, I get. Pete- not so much!

Although I would love to see my friends on MY home turf for a change!

m&m's mom 07-19-2011 10:50 PM

The very first DIS meet I ever went to was June 2000. It was at Dick Clark's Grill in Grapevine Mills Mall. That was a longggg time ago. Every now and then Dan Murphy posts pictures of the M's as babies at that meet. They are now 15 and almost 12. :scared:

stitchlover 07-20-2011 07:45 AM

I'm glad people like the Weinberger idea. He was very friendly and enthusiastic. If I haven't heard from Pete by Sunday afternoon with possible dates I'll get feedback from you guys about a date. For some reason October 1 stands out as a good day. Have no idea why!

juliebug1997 07-20-2011 07:51 AM

I know that we are going to see "West Side Story" some Sunday during the fair. I will have to check our tickets before committing but I'm excited!!!!

mommystieg 07-20-2011 10:20 AM

Count us in!! There is a small group of us here in the DFW area that have been meeting for quite a while. I don't think many of them are as active on the DIS as we all used to be - I will post on FB and let them know to check this out!!

book_junkie 07-20-2011 11:42 AM

I'd love to if I'm not working!

:hippie:

stitchlover 07-20-2011 04:24 PM

Have a GKTW family that is willing to come to our DisMeet to talk to us about what the GKTW experience meant to them. Will let you know as soon as I hear back from Pete.

How are people feeling about Saturday, October 1?

This will be my first dis meet!!!:woohoo:

Would also love to here from the GKTW family.

stitchlover 07-20-2011 06:44 PM

Mommy2allgirls and anyone else who wants to help...Once we set a date I will work on firming up the location. Then I think I'll have a better idea of what needs to be done to get us ready for the big day!
