Cool DIS Dads Meets

Ok - so let's have another place where we can talk specifically about DDC Meets... actual, potential or otherwise. We can post pictures too of the meets after they happen. ( I know Don has this over on page one - but honestly with the new space - let's spread out and enjoy it!)

stopher1's DIS Dad's Meets:

stopher1 (Christopher) and theduck619 (David) - Apr 2011 - Indianapolis
stopher1 (Christopher) and trennr (Nate) - Epcot - September 2010
chillcoupons (Christian) and stopher1 (Christopher) - Rainforest Cafe / Auburn Hills, MI - April 2010
stopher1 (Christopher) and chillcoupons (Christian) at the MK with Pirate Goofy! - June 2010
chillcoupons (Christian) and stopher1 (Christopher) on BTMRR - June 2010
chillcoupons (Christian) and stopher1 (Christopher) at the GF prior to MVMCP - December 2010
stopher1 (Christopher), Mrs. chillcoupons (Margie) and chillcoupons (Christian) in the chillcoupons palace - Royal Oak, MI - January 2011
billybobblockhead (Greg) and stopher1 (Christopher) - Epcot - February 2011
dadio (Brody) and stopher1 (Christopher) - Hollywood Studios - February 2011
dvczerfs (Dave) and stopher1 (Christopher) - Epcot - December 2010
Barry (FreezinRafiki) & Christopher (stopher1) - Dinner at little Mexican place next to Milwaukee's airport - 12/14/10

Barry (FreezinRafiki) & Christopher (stopher1) - DHS
Christopher (stopher1), Christian (chillcoupons), Carl (DisneyDadC), Barry (FreezinRafiki) & Tim (that's nice) - MK

I'm still looking forward to meeting up with Andy here in the Indy area... and other Indiana Dads... and of course hoping to meet up with more of you as time & travels allow.

The only DISdad I've met has been me.
But I have a picture of it.



I'm thinking of mailing the poster to any DISdad that wants to get a picture with me. Kind of like the Travelocity Gnome?
Everyone just sign the back, and send it on...

I’d be interested in such a thing. It might be harder to plan, but it could be fun. Imagine turning a good sized group of DisDads loose in a confined space like a ship (be it DCL or some other line ).

In two weeks Miracle League will be finished and my weekend time will open up exponentially.

I met Don (Emma's Dad) in April 2010...



And I met Tim (That's Nice) and Chris (DisDadDoc) in March 2011...



I also met Glenn (glennbo123) early this year. He doesn't post here much and I can't find the picture, but it did happen anyway.

And I'm hoping for a lot more DisDad meets this summer!

Also, this is kind of last minute, but I'll be at DTD this coming Saturday evening (May 14). So if anyone is around, let me know!

NEMESIS! I'm so sorry, it was late last night while posting that. Feel free to use one of your ...inators on me for that grevious oversight. It WILL be fixed.

We're planning on staying at CSR from Nov 11-19 or 20th (we're still deciding). We hope that the dining plan will be free for us during that time (it usually is, but you can't plan for it until it's announced).
