Smile Indianapolis Disney Meet - 6th Annual - All Welcome

Hi Everyone,

In 2012 we held our 5th annual Indianapolis Disney meet. Approximately 180 Disney fans attended from as far as Ohio, Florida, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Illinois, and all over Indiana.

Here is the link to last year's meet thread.
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2889133

To look for additional Indianapolis Disney Meet updates be sure to like our Facebook page.

Our 6th Year!
This will be our 6th Indianapolis Disney Meet. Over the years the meet has become more than just a chance for Disney enthusiasts to join together for a day of Disney fun. It has given us the opportunity to meet knew people who share our love for all things Disney. We've raised almost $13,000 for Give Kids the World. We feel very fortunate to be able to host an event like this so close to our home. For those of you who travel from so far away to attend the meet we really appreciate it and hope you will consider attending again this year. We have some exciting plans for this year's meet to celebrate our 5th year. More to come as we draw closer to our meet weekend.

The intent of the meet is to get to know other Disney enthusiasts like us and have some fun and laughs along the way. Like last year there will be no cost to attend this meet. We just ask that you bring a pitch-in food and/or drink item to share for the food table.

This meet is open to anyone willing to drive or even fly to the Indianapolis area. We'd love to have you join us. I'm hopeful to have several Hoosiers and other friends from other states join us in the Indianapolis area. If enough out-of-town guests join us we may have additional activities on the Friday night before the meet or the day after.

Please see below for meet information and details. Check this thread often for future details. We are planning an afternoon worth of fun Disney activities for kids and adults alike, prize drawings, contests and even some secret fun! We'll have more specific information the closer we get to Labor Day weekend.

Between now and September 7th I'll be updating this thread with meet information and attendees who will be joining us at the meet. Please post if you can attend the meet, how many guests will be joining your party including children and their ages. Even if you can't attend please post just to say hi!

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions feel free to post them here or send me a private message (PM).

We hope to see you at the meet!

This Year's meet will not be Labor Day Weekend. It will be the weekend after on Saturday, September 7th 2013

Hi Everyone - We are looking for someone who wouldn't mind helping out with creating a logo for our 6th annual Indy Meet.

The logo should consist of a black and white checkered format with some form of Disney or Mickey Mouse flare. Last year's logo(s) were very well done. See my signature for last years logo and our Indy Disney Meet Facebook page for our ear hat logo.

If you are interested send me a PM.

Thanks!

I should be there, Aaron, God willing, weather willing. Too much rain last year, cancelled the races I go to. Looking forward to seeing your mom and dad, along with the rest of your family. I have my race tickets for this year as well as hotel.

Hi Dan,
Sounds great! Last was tough because of the storm system that came through over the weekend.
The one thing I should mention to you is the meet is not Labor Day Weekend this year. It's the week after on September 7th. I hope that doesn't mess up your plans.

Yikes!! I did not read the fine print, or should I say the large, bold, red print. That does mess the plans. I will be coming over the weekend for the races, but not staying the week. I will have to see if I am up to make two round trips in a week. Why the change of date?

I'd love to attend. I'm located literally 5 minutes from the Hamilton county fairgrounds so if you need local help to plan and set up I'd be happy to.

A couple reasons really - The hall was booked well in advance of me booking it for this year over Labor Day Weekend. The second reason was I thought it might be a good idea to give those who can never attend over Labor Day Weekend the opportunity to come during a weekend other than Labor Day. I thought of you when I made the change, but I really hope you can still make it. I know it would be difficult, but if there is anything I could do to get you to come or to make your trip more comfortable please let me know.

I really appreciate the offer. Can you send me a private message (PM) and I'll add you to our committee list. I'm considering a meeting in Fishers with other committee members to see who can do what before, during, and after the meet.
Thanks!!!

Aaron,
Please put me down this year for supplying nametags again. I am also able to make some Disney-themed headbands (like Sweaty-bands - great for running!) to use as door prizes, raffle items, whatever. I'm not sure how many I'll be able to make right now, but my guess is between 5-10 - assortment of sizes for women and girls. (sorry guys! - accessorizing the hair with Disney flair is important though!)

Please let me know if either the nametags and/or headbands would be useful.

Thanks!!!

That sounds great! We'd love the name tags again and headbands sound right up my alley since I like to run. Thanks a million and feel free to PM me with anything you need to make the name tags and headbands for the meet.
