Great updates Alison! Is 007 always the theme or is every year different?

Another hooray for Embassy Suites!

We are staying in a Hilton Suites in just 4 days. The breakfast usually costs extra at these, but we got a deal with breakfast and internet included.

My best friend and her DH are car people. They are Buick fans, with a '70 GS and an '87 Grand National. They would love something like this. What a lovely drive!

That hotel is really nice! Love the lobby! All the effort that the people organising this event have gone to is amazing. How does it get funded it? Do you buy a ticket or does it come from membership? I am so impressed! I love the James Bond theme. I should be ashamed of myself being British but I must confess to not having seen all the films. I loved the new film. Judi Dench is brill as M!

Hope today is fun. I just love this trip report we have nothing like this in the UK. I don't even know what a chapter is. But am guessing it's a club that you belong to?

Lovely photos I like the one of the two of you at the table cutey couple :-)

Very excited about meeting you. I give Jo an update on your trip verbally every night when she gets home every night from work she loves it!
The event organizers did a great job. The basic event had a per person charge which included all the Saturday events, around $100pp. There was an extra charge for the dinner Friday night and/or the drive Friday morning. One thing we did discover about this group is that just about everyone in it has money. Makes sense because maintaining cars is not cheap. It seems that we are always finding ourselves in groups of people with means, and we are at the bottom of the heap!

As far as all the props and stuff, these are just things that people in the group probably used their own funds to make just because they love to camp it up. The guy with all the James Bond collectibles let the group use them since he already had them on hand.

A chapter is a subset of an organization which is usually locally based. People came from as far as Seattle and Denver to attend this event but most were from LA, SF or Palm Springs area. I'm glad that you and Jo are enjoying our experiences.

I think I need that software that converts speech to text, so I could recite everything I wanted to tell and that would be easier than typing everything up. I always forget too much, you are doing a wonderful job!
I'm not a big Whiskey drinker and I was afraid with so long of an open bar I would have too much. There are already some gaps in my memory as it is.

My phone has something like that, but knowing my phone it would convert it just a stupidly as it predicts my typing.

Kind of like wine, if you wouldn't drink it, don't cook with it.

The theme changes every year. Next year is kind of dumb, I'm not sure what to do with it. 1962.

I just can't read your report before bed; it makes my stomach growl.


What's with the gold mannequin in the bed?

Ha! I know! We're actually getting out more than I am comfortable with, but this is my XXth reunion. I think you had the same one last year, not sure why you beat me to it, but maybe you moved ahead in your transfer from school to school.

I haven't been to one since the 10th so I'm looking forward to it. Lots of potential shock factor! At the 10th, I was married to a man, so looking forward to showing up with Fran. She's far better than the man I showed up with X amount of years ago!

Although it seems as though it will be a fairly casual event, no dinner, just a gathering at a bar, I have to try and confirm the whole thing, it was all coordinated by facebook.

I can't help you with the food porn part, you should know!

Watch the James Bond movie with Goldfinger and you'll get the mannequin....

Thanks for explaining about the chapter. Also 100 pp is very good. I know what you mean though taking up a hobby and realising other members are really loaded as we say here ( have lots of cash to spare ) . Trying to keep up is hard without appearing mean!

As I don't drink and Jo drives so doesn't drink when out the amount of times we have had to split a bill with folks that ordered champagne and spirits plus the most expensive item on the menu etc. We had soda's a moderate meal and I feel my whole weekly allowance disappearing fast! But I am always too embarrassed to say anything!

A friend of ours is restoring an old car. It's beautiful. I will ask for a photo. A british Triumph TR6 I think. Not all finished yet but working in progress!

Looking forward to hearing what you are up to on Moonraker today.

My first "date" okay not really one parent dropped us at the movie and another picked us up (and we were only 10 y/o) we saw "Goldfinger" boy all the memories of that movie came flooding back when I saw that one lying on the bed "Jimmy" thought he was my boyfriend

Some unique looking costumes for the party, looks like it was alot of fun

Now when you mentioned the next years theme is 1962 Got me thinking I was 8 yrs old and I remember a lot going on, so I did a search

When you scroll down past the world events and get to Pop Culture I can think of so many things that can be done with 1962 It could really be quite awesome depending on what is picked and how they do it

(AND Wal_Mart opened the 1st store that year LOVE it !!)

http://www.thepeoplehistory.com/1962.html

and YES I too remember "What's My Line ? " can't remember what I did 2 days ago, but decades ago no problem !

That's the dead girl from Goldfinger. She was coated in gold and it suffocated her....but at least she had a night with Sean Connery first.
