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

Trying to picture Pete in Texas...

Walter, I get. Pete- not so much!

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

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.

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!

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!

We would love to be there, but that is when we are at WDW! (Actually, it's when we are in the Keys, on the way to WDW). DH, DD and I live in Garland

Can you put me down as a maybe? I live in Austin, but I need to wait on soccer schedules for DS5 and DS7 before I can 100% commit to coming to Austin for the weekend. It won't be hard to tie in a trip to Legoland as long as we don't have soccer conflicts.

Thanks for organizing everything.

Please put us down for two as a maybe. We would love to go. Just need to see what time the kids are playing baseball that day to see if we can make it. Thanks for putting this together.

The book arrived from Lee Cockerell today. I haven't forgotten everyone! I am playing phone tag with Weinberger Deli trying to confirm the date and nail down the time. I will post as soon as I speak with him.

Thanks for doing that Suzette! I am still waiting to hear from some authors I have contacted. I am also going to be at WDW on Friday and am going to look into finding a 40th anniversary item for the event to add to the auction
