Don't be nervous! I was feeling a lot like you were when I came last year. It was my first meet and everyone was SO friendly. There were icebreakers games, but my favorite thing to ask people was what's your screen name and why? It was interesting to hear everyone's answers!

I just plopped myself down at a table and started talking to those around me. I ended up having a good time and staying much longer than I expected!

I'm looking forward to this year's!

Thinking about driving up from Nashville. I've never been to Indy, so may plan a whole weekend! What types of things do people bring in terms of food, and what things are you looking for in terms of the silent auction/dontations?

Looking forward to meeting everyone!

I brought a big pan of macaroni & cheese, but I live locally so I was able to do that. Some others brought bags of chips, fried chicken, subway sandwiches, cookies. Some people went all out & made "Mickey-themed" desserts. There was even a Dole Whip machine!

It's a great day. I'm really looking forward to this year! Hope you decide to join us!

How much pin trading goes on? My 10 year old is an eager pin trader and I wondered how much to build this up for her, but we expect to attend regardless.

The amount of pin trading tends to vary. Some meets have been very active and some not so much. I'd suggest bringing only pins you'd wish to trade. We encourage trading. I know my daughter will bring some of hers to trade.
