Just wondering if anything is planned for a meet anytime soon in southeast Michigan? I know there was one scheduled for last November at 12 Oaks Mall but I wasn't able to make it. :sad2:

Now that the weather is improving :rotfl2: maybe we can get something going. I'd be willing to organize it if someone could offer a few pointers. Thanks!

:goodvibes Hi hope that someone will have a meet in Mich real soon. Didn't know about the one at 12 Oaks until after it was over. DH and I will be going to WDW from Apr30th-May5th and would love to see any Dissers there.

I will be gone for most of the month of May but would love to attend one when I get back - maybe a summer meet is on the horizon? I know others I could forward a meet notice to.

Ooooo lucky you! Going to Disney so soon. I've got to wait until November. :sad2: Have a wonderful trip - check back - maybe we'll have a meet set up by the time you get home. :cool1:

That would be great if you could forward this info. I'll look at the calendar and see if I can come up with a date. I'll probably shoot for a Saturday in June or July in the Food Court at 12 Oaks Mall in Novi. Another option would be to do a picnic at a local park. Any ideas, suggestions would be helpful and greatly appreciated. :goodvibes

Okay Michigan DIS'ers mark your calendars for Saturday, July 14th 2007. We will be meeting at noon in the Food Court at 12 Oaks Mall in Novi. Look for the LGMH's. :thumbsup2 I'm looking forward to meeting you all! :goodvibes

I've never organized a meet before so if anyone wants to offer any ideas I'd greatly appreciate it otherwise I'll be winging it. :rotfl:

:yay: I have never organized anything before either. But while DH and I were in WDW we met a group and just chatted and had a great time. If there is anything you would like me to do, please let me know. Will be back from WDW around the middle of May.

If you want to reschedule, that's your choice, I just thought I would let them know of the meet planned and they told me that is the Cedar Point weekend they set up already. If you reschedule, I'll let them know. They are a bunch from the DVC Member Cruise 2006 that I sailed with so that's how I know.

Hi Everyone. I didn't forget you! I've had computer issues the past couple of weeks! :scared1: Thankfully I'm finally back up and running :surfweb:

It looks like we're going to stick with our original plans and meet on Saturday, July 14th at 12 Oaks Mall. We'll be meeting in the food court area at noon.

Hope to see you there!

Hi MinnyGranny! Thanks for stopping by. :goodvibes We'd love to have you and your dh join us. I'm guessing we will have about 10-15 DISer's in attendance. We're (I'm) not to organized. I've never done a Dis meet before - so it looks like we're "winging it". I'm sure we'll still have a good time! :banana: I look forward to meeting you both. Oh and by the way it's July 14th not the 12th.

Yes there is! They moved it from the old location down by Sears. Now it is on the second level - near the center court - heading toward Macy's.

The Food Court area where we are meeting is on the lower level near Penney's.

I went to Home Depot today and liberated :lmao: some LGMH's for the meet. See ya real soon! :mickeyjum

Just a thought/suggestion. If you have not posted this on the Community board, maybe do so. That is a very busy board, most folks don't know the meet board is here. If you make a post there, put a link to this thread in it. And make sure, if you put it there this weekend, to bump it some on Monday and during the week, AM, afternoon and PM. Just a thought.

Looks like I won't be able to make the meet-up, DBF's birthday is that weekend and his work shifts fell in a decent enough arrangement that I'll actually be able to see him for a while, so I'll be headed off to Kalamazoo :/

Hi Gang! I just got home from 12 Oaks - scouting it out for the meet. :goodvibes I don't know what I was thinking - the Disney Store is on the first level (not the second as I stated earlier) over towards Macy's. They've got a 40% clearance sale going on now. :cool1:

For the meet at noon on Saturday (July 14th) if you want to park near the Food Court drive around behind Penny's. There is an entrance directly in to the Food Court to the left of Nordstroms. Once you enter look directly to your right - I'll set up right near the entrance. Look for the LGMH's.

Looking forward to meeting you all!

I'm glad you found us! From Monroe take I-75 north to I-275. Take I-275 north to 696 West. First exit will be Novi Road. Take that exit and turn right onto Novi Road and take one of the next two rights into the mall area.

I'm looking forward to meeting you and your gang!

I'll have to check it out next time!
I've got a niece that lives it Holland but sadly she's missing the "Mickey gene". :rotfl2:
I'm in Canton about 50 miles north of Toledo, Ohio.
Maybe if we do this again we could meet up in Frankenmuth or someplace else that's centrally located?

Gotta run! Our meet is just a few hours away!

Sorry I missed the meet yesterday - I just got home late last night from my trip to the east coast and there was just no way.

If you plan another meet while I'm in town, I'll be sure and get myself there - now, Frankenmuth sounds like a great idea for a meet - so much to do up there and it might accomodate DISers from elsewhere in Michigan.

Again, sorry I missed out - hope you have some pictures to share!
