Hey New Englanders,

Who's up for the third annual Canobie Lake Park meet. This year, we will be having the meet on Sunday, June 24th. We've had a blast at the meet the past two years, and have so much fun hanging out together, riding all the rides.

So, if you came before, come on back and meet us again. If you haven't joined us before, you don't want to miss this one.

Details on times and meeting places will be announced closer to the date of the event.

Official meet times:

11:00 a.m.--In front of the Carousel, which is right inside the entrance to the right. (Please note that I will not be at this meet because my ride thinks singing at church is more important than getting me to the meet on time--hehe).

12:30 p.m.--the International Food Plaza

5:00 p.m.--at the big fountain behind the entrance to the sky ride, not far from the Vertigo Theatre

It seems like we have a smaller group this year, so we may even decide not to bother with the 5:00 p.m. meet if we are all hanging out together anyways.

Yay, count me in! I wanted to come last time but had to miss it. So, I just put June 24 on my calendar. DS10 would likely be with me.

I am going to put it on my calendar too! I hope that I can go! If so, it would be me and my DD (5) and DS (1). NO DH because he works on Sundays. Sounds like an awesome thing to do with the kids!!!!:thumbsup2

They both do soccer but that should be done by the 24th. However we are already starting a week later than planned due to the fields not being ready because of the weather, and we never know how many rainouts/make ups we will have. Last year it was so bad they just finally said the season is over, no more games, LOL!

Then theres tball for Colt and baseball for Cam. That usually goes more toward the end of June. But we don't have a schedule yet (try outs were just today) and again theres the whole make up issue if we have a rainy spring. :rolleyes: My stressful time of year is beginning. :headache:

No 'trying' just do it!!! You have to be there. So, can we safely assume that Patrick is going to Europe to avoid us this year?? Understandable.
Now, we have to round up Angus and family!!!!

Don't breathe too easily just yet, he just may be available! :teeth:
Being the concerned, involved parents that we are, I don't recall his departure date!
I have to think of blandishments & bribes to wheedle him into going with us..now let's see...lovely girls...Fraggles?

Yep, I need Janice my partner in cryin' ! :eek:

Bummer...I was looking forward to joining you guys again this year, but my annual Coaster Convention conflicts with the date you selected. If all goes to plan I'll be at Camden Park in WV when you're all at Canobie. Generally, the weekend of Father's Day and the following weekend are always bad for me, since that's usually Convention time. If anyone wants a second dose of Canobie later in the year, I'll probably be up for it. Aside from August 18-19, my July/August weekend schedule is clear for the moment. Have fun in June!

I'm not sure if the recent references to August 18-19 were in regard to my previous posting, but just by way of clarification, August 18-19 would be the one weekend in the July/August time frame during which I could NOT make it (I'll be at a coaster event at Funtown in Maine). There's also a chance that I won't be available July 28 due to another event, but I'm not sure if I'll be attending it. If not, no problem (and I'd say it's about 70/30 in favor of me not attending that particular event, which means I'll probably be a go for 7/28 if that's the best date for everyone else). Take care.

If the Canobie Lake meet is indeed June 24, I'd like to go! (me + 1) I missed the last one so I am looking forward to it. So what do you do at the Canobie meet? Do you have an official meeting or does everyone just do their own thing at the park?

Also, I'll get in a little shameless DISmeet promotion here... :rolleyes1 I'm also holding a DISmeet MAY 5 at Southwick's Zoo in Mendon, MA. Picnic and zoo meet. So please head on over to my thread (poorly) titled New England DISmeet March/April if you are interested in attending that one as well. The more the merrier!

We are indeed on for 6/24!!! We generally have a meeting spot for the morning group and then another meeting spot for later in the day. We had two waves of people last year. Anyway, we tend to go in a herd from ride to ride. Some break off and do their own thing. It's pretty footloose and fancy free....whatever people feel like doing.
Wish I could be at Southwick's...sounds like a ton of fun, but I guess I should probably be at my dd's concert. It's kinda a big deal for her.

The Canobie Lake meets have been a lot of fun. It does seem like a core group of us hang out together, and ride the rides together. And for some reason, we always seem to make it to the rides right after someone else has blown chunks--thankfully not someone who is with our group.

As of now Cams last baseball game is Saturday the 23rd and likely they wouldnt have games 2 days in a row if he makes the playoffs! :yay: However if they get as desperate with the make ups as they did last year, they could. But as of now, nothing is scheduled for the 24th! :cheer2:

Hey, just heard about this on the CB. :) Ummm.....once again (like last year), I may be there. However, again like last year, my dd is with her father that weekend. I would hate to go alone as she would love it. :( So I'm up in the air, but I'll try to make it. :) I'm about a 10 minute drive from CLP, so it would be a shame to miss it again since I'm so close and all. :)

If I can't make it (may be in Minnesota!) I will send all three refillable mugs w/Chris :rotfl:

CLP refillables are different than WDWs--once you buy a cup the you pay only half price for refills

Meanwhile, everyone be practicing your map - reading - in - the middle - of - the - pathway skills!

goofy4tink
06-06-2007, 09:18 AM
Nope, no time has been put in place. I think that last year we did two time frames, so that those going in the morning could all meet up at a set time and then a later timed meet in the afternoon. That seemed to work out pretty well. Stay tuned...I'm sure we'll come up with some times to meet up.


BTW....we have info about our fall Boston meet up...head over and let us know what date works best for you all!!

06-06-2007, 06:15 PM
where have you met before? i believe their hours that day are 11am-10pm - do they have a group rate? do you usually stay all day/night? pack lunches?
im interested in coming along but id need to be someones taglong as most likely i'll be a solo

goofy4tink
06-06-2007, 06:38 PM
I think that last year we met up at park opening, right inside the entrance, then again a bit later at lunchtime. Then, we got together late afternoon for the later arrivals.
We didn't get a group rate or anything. Just paid the regular admission. We bought lunch there in the park. We stayed till closing if I remember correctly. Or at least it was pretty late when we left.
I already have to pick up some others and have a full car at this point. Perhaps someone else has room in their car?

magiroux
06-06-2007, 07:01 PM
Yep, we had two meeting times because I remember some people couldn't make it until after opening, so we had a second time around lunch. We pretty much just hang together and last year the lines were so long it really gave us a chance to socialize while waiting for rides. Later in the day, some just hung out and blabbed while others went off to do more rides and we would find them right where we left them.

It really is a pretty laid back DIS Meet where if you want to hang with the group the whole day you can, but if you want to meet up then do your own thing for a while and meet up again later, that works too. It's all good :hippie: :hippie:

Hope you can make it, Barbara. I enjoyed meeting you at Southwick's :)

06-15-2007, 06:23 AM
I am going to be coming down from N Conway, NH and I can be there for 10:45 (I think they let you in a bit ealier than posted opening) and can meet others just inside the park (by the pool).

Did we want to set up a second meet place time for a little later in the day??

06-15-2007, 06:36 AM

Perhaps we can meet for lunch at that lunch place we were at last year? We could plan on meeting about 1:00 or so, then again late afternoonish, for those who arrive after lunch.

OK, how does this sound for the official meet times:

11:00 a.m.--In front of the Carousel, which is right inside the entrance to the right. (Please note that I will not be at this meet because my ride thinks singing at church is more important than getting me to the meet on time--hehe).

12:30 p.m.--the International Food Plaza

5:00 p.m.--at the big fountain behind the entrance to the sky ride, not far from the Vertigo Theatre

It seems like we have a smaller group this year, so we may even decide not to bother with the 5:00 p.m. meet if we are all hanging out together anyways.

Let me know what you all think of this

Hey, sometimes you just gotta prioritize!!! I'll know better tomorrow after church. I need to see who is going to be singing before I can take it off completely. As some of you are aware, I have a very big mouth....if I'm gone from the choir loft, it can leave a gaping hole in certain pieces of music. But, if there are enough sopranos there, then I can beat feet to pick up her most royal highness, the queen of all things DIS...oh, and I'll swing by and pick you up too Karen!!!!!:rolleyes1

Meet times and places sound good to me!! See you all in a bit more than a week!!

Ah, so you'll just be bringing yourself and money??

whats everyone bringing? drinks/snacks? bathing suits?

Most buy stuff to eat right at the park. Some bring swim suits, some don't. I may this time, just to have it in case I want to do the water area, or dd does. We haven't swum in the past, but you can just never tell what will happen. If it's brutally hot, then some may opt for the water park area. They do have lockers there, so you can leave stuff in one.

I am not bringing a swimsuit. No one needs to see me in a swim suit.

Yeah, like I would have known your last name!!!!! And I guess there were a few times I yelled over to you on a ride or two...just wanted you to know we were there!!!

I was disappointed that we didn't get to see Aengus singing with CL5 yesterday. It would have been so much fun.

It's always a blast tormenting Diane:

I'm looking over my dead dog rover
That I over looked before
One leg is broken
The other is lame
I ran him over with my choo choo train
No use explaining the leg remaining
It's out on the kitchen floor
I'm looking over my dead dog Rover
That I overlooked before

Thanks for making the day so much fun and being so nice to my niece.

I hope everyone can make it to the Boston Meet this fall (er, except for you Rhonda, because well, you're EXcluded - JK, really wish you could make it :flower3: ). Sorry I missed you leaving Jen - I was off snagging a PB&J out of the locker (rule breaker that I am), but it was great fun hanging out with you and Rhonda talking Disney!!!

As far as candid photos, post away Chris.....can't be any worse than what is already floating around on the internet of me :rolleyes: . Sorry we never got that group photo :confused3 . I missed Jean yesterday and hope she is feeling better :flower3:
