Shawn and I will be at one of the All-Star resorts (I forget which one) August 8 through August 12th. Our dilema is what to do with the kids. Our original plan was the grandparents, but now my oldest (who is only 6) says she wants to come and pin trade too!

I plan on being at WDW for the August pin event. Not sure if Linda will get to come or not (yeah, right!) We were undecided about whether to go or not, since we already have two trips planned this year. But, we looked at our annual passes, and they expire Aug. 12th, the last day of the pin event. It has to be an omen!
We have reservations for Caribbean Beach from Aug. 9-13, 2001.
Can't wait!

Here's a question for those going in August:

Are you are taking most of your collection (a considerable amount for some) or just "traders" to the August event. We're taking quite a few pins, mostly traders. But those include several that we would ONLY trade for a very limited selection of pins. For example, I'm taking my 35th Anniversary Imagineers pin that would take an awfully good trade to get me to let go of, particularly as it's the only one I have

Just curious what everyone's plans were. We don't get much chance to show off "the collection" up here in the boonies, so we're really looking forward to people who will actually appreciate it

Zayne and Xavier's Dad last year...I leave my permanent collection AT HOME...and just bring my traders...now some of these are BIG traders...but I would part with them for the right pin...remember you can always say.."I'm saving that for a Holy Grail trade"..
Hope this helps you!

Suzanne,

Oh don't worry. We know better than to take a few of the pins that we just _wouldn't_ part with I just wondered if, for something this big and something this rare, people would be bringing a LOT of pins, or just what you would take for any normal trip to WDW.

We're certainly doing the former, and that includes bringing several pins that, while we wouldn't trade for just anything, we would certainly trade if the right pin came along. Most of these we only have one of (Mickey Animator, the 35th Imagineers, several others), so we wouldn't trade them very lightly...but if something comes along that we've always wanted (like a jail scene, HM dangle, or a few others) I'd rather have them with me if they'd help to complete a trade.

Can't WAIT till August

I think b/c it's such a big event...you might be really happy to have those BIG BIG traders...of course it does add to the weight of your pin books..sigh....but if the pins are HOME and you see that Holy Grail...you'll be a sad puppy...

Suzi and I will both be there staying at the All Star Music Resort (more money for pins). We arrive in the evening on the 8th of August and leave on the last flight out on the 12th of August. If what I have been hearing is correct then this will be an incredible time. We will bring the usual which is a ton of pins.

Will be there the 8th to 14th - need a couple days to unwind after. Staying at the Boardwalk, after pinning all day a nice relaxing cold whatever at the ESPN club(hopefully a Red Sox game will be on).

I have learned to bring basically my traders, I do bring one bag that has some HTF's just in case a run into a Holy Grail - you never know who might have what!!

pintrader and DH. I have a new trick. I have put all my Holy Grail traders on one page taken them to a kinko and have a color copy made of it. Then I will have all available traders without the weight. The trader\ can be "closed" at another time and place. :-)

Announcement from Arizona Jeff...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From deep within the heart of the Arizona desert, one figure stands alone. A pin bag in one hand, a plane ticket in the other. Another adventure will find its beginning in central Florida in the mid-August sun.
There are way to many stories here for me to miss. Trina and I have made arrangements to be in Orlando from August 7 - August 13 arriving home a mere 37 minutes before the Diamondbacks play the Pittsburgh Pirates. From Walt Disney World to the airport to the ballgame and finally home. What an adventure.

Mike (Cheshire Figment) and I are planning to be there. Will be bringing a bit of everything and will try Pintraders idea of Xeroxing the really HTF's. Please let me know by e-mail if there is anything I may have that you really want to trade for. I don't like saying "I have it at home".

I am trying to go, too! Probably Thurs-Sun (8/9-12) at BWV.

YardHaunter, the girlettes3 and I will be staying somewhere on property with RaulandPinBoy and GotAnyPins (my folks). Maybe an All-Star, maybe and RV at Fort Wilderness. We're still volleying options. As relative newbies, we don't have that"weighing" problem of "what to bring" - we're still fairly portable. Sooo, we'll all probably LUG it all around!
