View Full Version : Fulcer-CON 2002 - Milwaukee Wisconsin on 8/3

07-11-2002, 11:30 PM
Ok, so the name isn't original, and neither is the concept, but hey it's another excuse for throwing a DIS party.

Because we had SO much fun at PatrickIL-CON we decided that it would be a cool thing to do at the Fulcer house also. Of course, DW having a blast and joining the DIS prolly had something to do with it. I had already mentioned a meet to some, and now am solidifying the details...

Date: August 3, 2002
Time: 3:00 (?)
Location: My house in Milwaukee (address to follow)

We'll provide the house, and a main dish, and various other needed items. Like PatrickIL-CON, I'd like to ask for others to bring a dish to pass/etc.

Any of you chicagoans willing to drive? Milwaukeeans, line up!!

Sign in and let it be known if you can attend!!

07-11-2002, 11:37 PM
I think that could be arranged!! How far was the drive to Patrick's from your place (roughly)?

Let me check to make sure my calendar is clear but that would be great!!

I think we can probably do this Jeff :) Tricia 90 miles 1 1/2 hours roughly :)

07-11-2002, 11:47 PM
Patrick was really close... door to door 1 hour 43 mins. Just a short hop skip and a jump...

I would think the date is good, Jeff. Sounds good!!!

We should be able to pull in the folks from Minnesota, U P Michigan, southern Canada. :bounce:

07-12-2002, 12:38 AM
Sign us up for 2 if I can drag DH to it, otherwise I will be there solo. And please let me know what I can do to help!

07-12-2002, 01:51 AM
Stomping foot mad! :mad: Jeff, do you really mean in 3 weeks? Not next 8/3?! ARGH I have to go to DH's niece/Goddaughter's BD party that day! I'll be in Oak Lawn. :( (I bleed sarcasm!)
bummer. if anything changes, I'll let you know. :(

Where's a pouting, disgusted smilie when you need one?!

Have fun FOR me, please! ;)

07-12-2002, 03:24 AM
:( I wish Jules & I could come

07-12-2002, 09:10 AM
Well we are going to be in the city for the weekend but let me talk to dh and see if this is an interest...I mean it is an interest but I'm not sure if we can do it...we had some plans already made for various things through the weekend......

Just a little too far for me to drive - plus have a huge annual family reniuon that weekend - but thanks for the invite!

07-12-2002, 10:06 AM
I'll be able to attend along with my DS Isaiah...let me know what you need me to bring!

I wanna go! :( :(

07-13-2002, 01:10 PM
Hey, Jeff,

We're getting back from Disney on Aug 2 but I'd like to squeeze in your place on the 3rd. Are your mom and dad invited? Send details.

07-14-2002, 01:17 AM
Susie, my mom isn't invited, although she does know about the DIS, she's not registered (yet). She could come if she wants, I'll have to mention it to her.

RimRaye, I'm sure you could feign illness and when everyone isnt looking make the drive here. :D

MS, the check is in the mail. ;)

Hmmm? You think? ;)

Really though, out of 6 consecutively busy weekends, 3 of them included DH's family. Only 2 were DISMeets! I should be allowed to miss yet another of his family parties, just to even the score! Don'tcha think?! ;) :jester:

Ohhh, I'm not feeling so well........:(


07-14-2002, 02:05 AM
If you go I will Kim!

07-14-2002, 02:11 AM
And, how many times have I heard that before, Beccy?! :(

If you honestly, truly can make it, I'll try to work something out with DH! After all, I'm not his niece's Godmother or anything!

I'm bummed about missing this Meet, really I am! :( :( And, DH already KNOWS it! ;)

07-14-2002, 02:14 AM
Its the church festival that weekend so I have to check with someone to make sure I'm not working that day. I know Tim isn't so if I'm not we can go. So see what you can work out.

07-14-2002, 02:59 AM
don't think I can somehow sneak it by DH...I will be there in spirit guys...have a blast!

07-14-2002, 03:07 AM
LOL glo! Does that mean chairs will 'levitate' when you're not here?! ;)

You truly add FUN to a Meet! :smooth:

07-14-2002, 03:10 AM
Kim I am trouble with a capital "T". I was told I had people there keeping an eye on me...lol. Talk about being intimidated :rolleyes: :rolleyes: I do not know about levitating chairs, but I can tell you there was one heck of a struggle between Mr. Patrick and I when I tried to leave for home with the chair :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :p :D ;)

07-14-2002, 09:07 AM
Have been away from the boards for awhile. Now I find a meet in
my hometown and I'll be gone that week on vaction.
Man this _ _ _ _ _! Well you have a great time. I f anything changes I'll let you know.

Jeff.. yeah I know it is only 1300 miles from me.. but Ii have to work anyway.. Too bad .. I would have a blast partying with you and our felllow Disers... Then again two sick days on a weekend without a doctor's note.. getting docked for those days.. 445.00 in air fare.. Is having fun worth the price? Well if i did not have a mortgage, bills, and all.. YES!!!

07-15-2002, 04:06 PM
Joe, your airfare would only be $196. You could fly in from JFK on friday night, party all day saturday and fly back on sunday. What a time! ;)

07-15-2002, 04:16 PM
This sounds like a lot of fun. I WANT to come, and don't have any plans for that weekend but may be a last minute RSVP'r since things have been really nutsy for me. I'm sending you a PM Jeff. Thanks for organizing this!

07-16-2002, 10:33 AM
WHAT??? A DIS meet in my backyard? WOW!!!

I do have plans that day, HOWEVER, I am going to talk to DH and we will more than likely stop by. I can't miss a DIS meet that's practically thrown into my lap!

Myself, DH and baby Justin will be out and about that day anyway, so one way or another, we will atleast stop by for a bit.

We have a family party in, I think it's Cedarburg, which isn't exactly on the way, but somehow, someway, I wil try to hit both of these parties.

DH is in Canada until this Saturday, but I will talk to him when he gets back and see what we can work out for that day. I have no idea what time the family party starts. Once I find that out, I will be able to plan better.

I will keep ya posted. At this point, plan on 3 stopping by for atleast a little while.

what is the excuse you are using to get out of that other party? Would could come and spirit you and your DD away the night before or something. Leave a ransom note demanding Disney Dollars for your return. :):):)

07-19-2002, 10:58 PM

I'll get our bags packed..... shhhhhh

Hi all. I am DW of JFulcer and co-partner for Fulcer-CON on August 3rd.

Just got back from shopping and picking up some surprises for the Fulcer-CON day. I love to make things and so does DD Brittany so we will be busy making some fun give a ways for Fulcer-CON.

We will have our yard all decked out in Lime Green (of course) and will have a Mickey Flag as well as other signs pointing to our house. Once it gets closer to the date I am sure Jeff will share with all of you how to get to our house, etc.

Just wanted to let everyone know we will have some surprises here so maybe some of you that have not RSVP'd to come will want to come to get some free things.

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. I am off to get some of the projects started for Fulcer-CON while DD Brittany and DD Abigail take a rest.

Hope to see more of you on August 3rd.

Jeff & Gael,
We're leaving for camping tomorrow afternoon and won't be back until next Wednesday, the 31st. Pam said she would like to make a tuna pasta salad if that's OK and if you need us to bring anything else just let us know. We'll also need directions to your house. Thanks!

07-25-2002, 09:18 AM
I talked to DH and he said he wouldn't mind stopping by. I'm surprised. Not that he wouldn't want to meet you all, but he does not share in my Disney obsession. So, once I find out what time that other party starts, I can figure out how to makes stops at both of our get togethers that day. Just need directions!!

Thank you Jeff and Gael for inviting all of us! How sweet! I will bring a taco type dip and salsa with chips. It's so yummy! Unless you'd prefer something else, just let me know. Again, I don't know how long we will be able to stay because of our other commitment, but we will get there somehow! Can't wait!

07-26-2002, 04:32 PM
I'll be posting a little more detail and PMing suggestions for stuff to bring later tonight. If you have not PMed or asked me to bring something, please email or PM me if you can bring something.

If you are concerned about getting lost, PM me and I will send you my phone number. Our phone number is listed, so if you don't get it and get lost, information has it. :)

We're going to have cold cut sandwiches for Dinner, provided by us. I have PMed everyone that said they could bring something to either suggest something or to confirm their suugestion. If I have not contacted you and you can bring something, PM me please.

Ok, I think that's about it for now! If anything else comes up, I'll let you all know!

07-27-2002, 03:46 AM
How long of a drive are you from Lake in the Hills, IL?

1st party (in Oak Lawn) got re-scheduled (as I TOTALLY expected) but, another family party was backing it up. So, I'll be in Lake in the Hills that day, same time but, if party's a bust.......?????? Can we make a break for Milw???;)


07-27-2002, 09:32 AM
If I found the right Lake in the Hills (mapquest wasn't sure) you are about 2 hours away from Milwaukee.

Can't you just tell DH that you promsed us all if the party didn't happen that you would come to ours??? I'm sure he'd believe you. :)

07-29-2002, 12:21 AM
*sigh* I wish I could be there. :)

I am sending a little something to Jeff's for everyone there - hope it arrives in the mail in time. :) Hope you all have fun.

Hey Jeff - I can give you my cell if you want to call or I can call you and talk to some DIS'ers!! :)

07-29-2002, 09:52 AM
Bumping for Jeff and apologizing that we won't be able to make it. This is our family mini-vacation into the city for the weekend and we just have quite a few things planned and don't want to be maxing ourselves out.....hope you all have a great time and I'll be doing my great weekend weather dance for you all!!!!!

07-29-2002, 10:12 AM
Hello from Brookfield!

What a surprise to see so many Milwaukee area posters! I've been on the boards for about a year. Started when we were planning our Sept 2001 trip to Disney. What great people and advice I've gotten here.

Looks like you're in the Wauwatosa area. What a beautiful area around the Menomonee Parkway.

Unfortunately, my family has plans for August 3rd, but I'll keep an eye open for any future gatherings. My daughter and I are huge Disney nuts, but my DH, not so much. I'm trying to find golf/cigar/wine tasting events at Disney to lure him to a Disney vacation.

Have a GREAT time at your party!

Dan Murphy
07-30-2002, 12:12 AM
We will be bringing some wine, Jeff, and desserts. Looking forward to a nice day in Milwaukee.

07-30-2002, 12:52 AM
I work!:( EVERY weekend! But, how late do you think you guys will be there? Latest, I would be able to swing by around 7:15pm. I have to check with DH because his sister is having a family reunion that day, and if it is still going that late, I would need to go there. But I doubt it would be going that late. Too hard on their mom. I don't want to inconvenience you guys because I couldn't come till late, but it would be neet to meet everyone.

07-30-2002, 01:36 AM
LOL Princess V! I like your enthusiasm and DIS-loyalty!

Anyway, I think I left the last Meet around 11pm! And, I wasn't the LAST to leave! ;) :p

Have fun and, I hope the 'reunion' doesn't last too long!

(I'm off to go pout again! :( )

07-30-2002, 09:48 AM
I don't know really if there will be an 'ending' time per say. At Patrick-CON we left about 9:30, and there were STILL people there really late.

We'll be up as long as guests are still there. We've got a nice deck and a bunch of chairs for lounging, so I'm SURE we'll still be partying at 7. We'll look forward to seeing you!

MidwestPiglet - too bad you can't make it! We'll have to drag you to one of the Chicago meets sometime...

December99 - Too bad you can't make it. Remember, if you find yourselves bored with your vacation, the door is open!

RimRaye - I'm sure your family gathering won't be as fun as a DIS meet, so we'll look forward to seeing you! :D:D:D

07-30-2002, 10:51 AM
DH Todd and I will definitely be there on Saturday! We can't wait. :earsgirl: :earsboy:

The directions look fine Jeff. We wanted to stop at the J.C. Penney outlet on Silver Spring anyway and your house isn't too far from there! See you Saturday at 3! Should we bring our lawn chairs along? Or is there anything else you need us to bring along with the salad? Just let us know and we would be glad to help out!

we've got everything under control. DW is at the store right now buying the food and stuff. You only have to bring your lawn chairs if you have an especially comfy chair you like.

If you want to, you can bring your recliner and we can set it up in the back yard like at Patrick's. :)

The Penny's outlet store is not too far from our place, nor is the catalog outlet store either. You could hit both. ;)

If i wasnt leaving town i would have shown up. But i see that i work in the district near to your house. I work out of district #4 which is only about a 3/4 mile from your house which is District 7.
I hope all goes well and the weatherman is predicating great waether now that the heat streak has broken.

08-02-2002, 04:35 PM
Oh bummer! I won't be able to meet Bob O!!!

Looking forward to seeing everyone. We will be there later... after our family party.

See you all then!

08-02-2002, 05:26 PM
You work near my district? Then you can send a squad over to ticket the abandoned car just south of Capital on 100th? Someone crunched the side of it and it's been sitting on the street for about 3 weeks now. It doesn't fit into the neighborhood very well. :(:(:(

08-02-2002, 08:26 PM
Hey Jeff,
We just know of the Penney outlet store on Silver Spring. Where's the catalog Outlet you are talking about?

It sounds like you have a very fun group coming tomorrow. Have a great time!

08-02-2002, 10:26 PM

08-02-2002, 11:19 PM

08-03-2002, 01:52 AM
Big V,

The catalog outlet is just off of 94 on Burleigh. There is a HUGE Penny's catalog facility there and they have a place you can go in and look at stuff that's returned/etc. This is a lot of larger stuff like furniture, mirrors, etc... but still has other small stuff, but not as much as the Silver Spring Store. The address is like 118th and Burleigh. You can't get a wedding dress there like you can on Silver Spring... ;)

BobO, when are you off vacation?

KimRaye, still haven't figured out a way to weasel outta your other event?? :)
