We're staying at the BCV so hopefully we'll make it home OK!

I guess we'll have to wait until July or August (if history repeats ) to find out which paid events are available for our October dates.

One of my friends keeps raving about the French Regional Lunch so I may have to look into that for this trip!
I was scheduled for one of those last year, I hope to do one on the 14th.

Hopefully you aren't having to deal with the ice we are getting here in VA this morning!! Have fun at Ft. Bragg.

ICE?!! No ice here -- just severe thunderstorms and a tornado watch!! Often a small rain shower is enough to screw up all the flights out of ATL so this could get interesting!

I have the feeling this is going to be a LONG day!! Glad JD is up to the task of driving me to the airport (over an hour from home)!

Leaving now. Wish me luck!!

Laura, I am sure you are safe at Ft Bragg. I love that base...course it could be because my DH was stationed there. But I love the size of it and all the history of the Special Forces. Hope you have a good week with great weather.

I really would enjoy attending this! We all have to keep each other informed when the dates and tastings are listed.

What a great idea Elin. Why didn't I ever thing of that on my own. Oh yes, because DH does not care for Champagne. I would end up drinking the bottle by myself. Hmm Can we add a Sangria meet to our plans?

And... the Grand Marnier thingy is loads of fun. And loads of alcohol! I wasn't sure Laura and I were going to be able to walk out of Bistro in a straight line.
Ok, DH and myself are on for this one. I love me some Grand Marnier! We always order Cadillac margarita's when we go out for mexican. it would be so much fun going together if possible.

Happy Saturday everyone.

Thanks! It was a terribly long day. Delayed for hours at ATL - they shut the airport for several hours during the height of the storms. We finally took off at 5:15 and had a very bumpy ride. Let me put it this way, there were many of us praying (even some frequent travelers on that route).

But I'm here safe and sound (and thankful! )

I'm assuming that you all mean Ft Bragg, NC and not Ft Bragg, CA

Elin - hope Bob's surgery goes well!!

Question for all my friends - if you've rented DVC points in the past where have you rented them from? I'm leaning towards David's Rentals simply because it seems to be a bit more trustworthy. We're thinking about renting in October and I have friends who are new to WDW thinking about renting points, but wondered if I should point them anywhere else.

Thanks all!

when I have rented them out, I have done it thru the DIS there is a section on the DVC portion.

Great question, I would also be interested in suggestions and how things worked with companies like David's. That may be the way to go for our family size and September/October trip. Thank you for asking TyRy.

When I added on my two contracts last Winter, I thought that I would be renting out my extra points...however in my case I am finding out that there is no such thing as extra points.
