How are people feeling about Saturday, October 1?
I will definetly be there. With MY box of tissue. Any time I read the wish trip reports I just start crying so emotional.

I would also be happy to help set up or secure donations from vendors.

Oh by the way I am one of the long time DISer's on Facebook. My first meet was at Rainforest Cafe in Grapevine in 2003. If anyone would like to connect with me on FaceBook my full name is Lorrie Galliher.

I haven't heard anything from Pete and with his traveling this fall and the wedding coming up in December it is probably a long shot that they would be able to attend. I would love to get a firm date to Dan at Weinberger before his meeting with the City this evening. No one has objected to Saturday, October 1st at this point. I think that gives us plenty of time to gather donations for a silent auction, etc. I am going to go back to my original post on this thread and clean it up with an official date and a list of those that are interested so far. Of course all I have are your screen names. If you could PM me or email me at msc2slc@att.net and give me your name and a head count for your family so we can start building a list of attendees that would be great. As I firm up location and exact time I will add that to the first post. I hope to get a firm location within the week.

So anyone who wants to get donations for a silent auction GO FOR IT! When you get items please PM or email me so I know to add them to the list.

I am going to work with Dan at Weinberger to see if we can get vendors in Grapevine to donate items also. Who else has some ideas of things we should do and include in our gathering?

Now understands that the old stupid question is the one you don't ask! :)
When I set the alarm it has to end in "0"--6:30 cannot be 6:31

Sure!! We usually meet about once every couple of months. I will send you a PM with my e-mail address - that is how we usually communicate.

Bowing Out

Sorry, I'm going to have to bow out... That weekend we're headed up to UIUC (University of Illinois-Urbana) for homecoming weekend, and won't be in town...

Definitely keep me posted about the next one!

Hi Suzett!

I would love to go just so I can see you again but I am not sure yet.
Did you know that October 1 is the 40th Anniversary of the opening of the WDW Magic Kingdom? I have plans to be in WDW for F & W the following weekend but I an trying to add a few days to be there for the 40th Celebration.

It looks like you have the ball rolling toward a very successful event!

Talking Who wants to have dinner with Kevin and The Genius on their next WDW trip?

John and Kevin have donated a dining review with Kevin and John as an auction item for our North Texas GKTW fundraiser meet!

(He says "any place", but I think he means it does need to be in the WDW/Orlando area!)
