Are you ready for some football - silent auction!

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL???? Bring your checkbook - the 2013 New York Jets schedule is out. One of the silent auction items is a laser autographed Jets football (donated by the Jets), a Chad Pennington action figure - AND 2 tickets to ANY home Jets game (with parking pass). Section 307, Row 14

Last minute reminders and information

Hi everyone,
I have sent this info to everyone who signed up through eventzilla and provided an email address. Some of you did not- so I am posting here as well- just to make sure everyone gets this information before next weekend.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The NJ DIS Meet is just days away now- we are putting all the finishing touches on everything so you will all have the best time possible.
I wanted to share a few reminders with everyone as you prepare to join us for Saturday’s event- or even the whole weekend!

Hilton Garden Inn-
For your GPS:
Hilton Garden Inn, 500 Promenade Boulevard, Bridgewater, NJ 08807

Your hotel room at the Hilton Garden Inn has a microwave and refrigerator- so you can bring beverages, snacks, breakfast, etc. if you wish.
They do have a small breakfast-for-purchase area that is open from 7:30-11:00am.
Continental all-you-can-eat breakfast is $7.95/person. And a hot all-you-can-eat breakfast (with eggs, etc.) is $10.95/person.
There is no lounge or restaurant available for dinner, etc. Just breakfast. But there are quite a few options in the immediate vicinity- and we have prepared a list to help you which you will receive when you check in.

Friday Activity-
Game Night starts at 7pm. Please enjoy dinner in the area beforehand or on your way to the area. There will be a registration table here and you will be able to check in for the entire weekend’s activities. If you ordered a Meet T-shirt, you will get it on Friday night.
You will also get a name tag that you will use for the whole weekend. If you have a favorite lanyard from WDW, the Cruise Line, DIS Unplugged or wherever- please bring it. Don’t worry if you don’t have one- we will have some generic white lanyards available for you.
1. Name that Disney Tune is first up. You can play alone or in groups. Matt D has prepared a nice list of song stumpers for everyone!
2. Next is Bunco! This is a fun way to meet new people. It is fast moving and you’ll get to talk to all of the players at some point in the game. It’s an easy to play and no pressure game. If you choose not to play- feel free to mingle and snack while the Bunco crowd plays.
3. Last on the agenda for Friday is the Tastykake Eating contest!!! Our 4 contestants have been in training- and are ready to consume as many Butterscotch Krimpets as possible in 3 minutes. Choose your contestant and place your bets. 100% of your wager goes right to Give Kids the World!! This is sure to be a FUN event to watch. Good luck to Greg, Kevin, Matt and Kim!!

We will have snacks available at the event, but we are asking you to bring your own non-alcoholic beverage if you want more than water. To keep costs down, we elected not to pay $8/person for soft drinks. This way we raise more money for Give Kids the World! We hope you understand!

Saturday
The Main Event starts at 12:00 noon. If you checked in on Friday- you’re good to go.
For your GPS:
Somerville Elks Lodge, 375 Union Avenue, Bridgewater, NJ 08807

If Saturday is your only event- there will be a registration table in the lobby at the Elks Lodge starting at 11:30am. You will receive your name tags, raffle tickets, t-shirts and more. We ask that everyone arrive early enough to check in before noon.
At noon- we will open the doors to our event!! First thing to do is choose your seats (no assigned seating- but we will have plenty of room for everyone). Then, you can play DIS Bingo (in your check in packet) and start browsing and bidding on the auction items right away!
Lunch will be served at 1:00- so you have a whole hour to check out the auction, buy more tickets and meet new friends.
The Podcast starts at 2:30. At this time, ALL bidding for the raffle and auctions ENDS. So make sure you buy your extra tickets early and make your choices for your favorite items. You can bid during lunch as well- either before your table is called or after you have finished eating.
Raffle tickets will be available for: 5 for $5, 12 for $10, 20 for $15, 30 for $20

Please remember to bring CASH or CHECKS for all purchases. We will not be able to process credit cards (saves more money for GKTW!!)

At 3:30 we will post the winners of the Silent Auction prizes and start pulling winning tickets for the 120+ raffle items. Because we have a very limited time to get this done, please make sure you are in your seats and have your tickets ready. We will have volunteers running the prizes to you as quickly as possible.
The event ends at 5:00pm. You are free to get dinner anywhere in the area.
If you are joining us for bowling- either as a bowler or spectator-plan to be at the Lanes around 7:00pm.

I have an OCD Mom question. Will there be a "kids area" I am only concerned about the recording of the Podcast. There is no way he could sit quietly through an hour recording. If I am with him in a separate area, will I still be able to hear the podcast? Just curious.

YES!!!
Cathy (twob4him) and her girls have a whole kids area planned.
It's right there in the same room with us- so yes, you'll be able to hear the podcast.

She has a TV with Disney DVD movies, coloring and crafts and more.
The kids can play there while you mingle and bid on prizes and listen to the podcast recording. You can also visit easily with them throughout the day!

No worries. Go pack the car!!! (and drive safely please )

And we are encouraging people to come cheer for the bowlers- it'll be fun for everyone!!
