GKTW Meet: Tennessee, February 18, 2012

Just wondering if anyone would be interested in having a meet in Tennessee to benefit GKTW. I noticed that Disney on Ice is coming to Memphis in September... that might be a nice time to get something together. I might be able to get a box at the Forum donated for us to use.

Anyone interested?

Ok, Tennessee, let's get going! We live in a state that is full of entertainment opportunities... from the Blues melodies in Memphis to Country music in Nashville to the beautiful Mountains of East Tennessee... Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

Memphis is on the wrong end of the state for me. The Virginia meet is too far away as well. I'd be up for a SW VA/Upper East TN meet!

Yes, Bristol is a long way from Memphis. Hopefully, we can get something worked out... either a central location for everyone or a couple of different meets based on location...

Me too! I used to live in Memphis. It's about a 8 hr drive for us. Tennessee is a loooong state.

I had thought Disney on Ice too as was suggested for Memphis. Minnie, did you have a back up idea for something in Memphis? Anyone know if any Disney movies are due out in the next few months?

Early 2012 works for me. I am happy to help in any way I can, although I don't have much special event planning experience either.

Can I make a suggestion... Do both!! The Disney on Ice box in Memphis in late September and then a big bash in January in Nashville .., they are far enough apart that if you can make it to both great and if only 1 works that is fine too... We have alot of work to get to 1 Million dollars! Just an idea

We live in Western Kentucky, so a Nashville meet would be good for us. We would make plans to attend.

Thanks for planning the event.

Nashville sounds good! Please keep us posted. We are in Hendersonville so just a few minutes from Nashville. Let me know any ways that we can help! Items for auction, donations, etc... I have a few connections in the country music world.
