Smile Indianapolis DIS Meet - 3rd Annual - All Welcome

Welcome to the 3rd annual Indianapolis Labor Day Weekend DIS Meet Thread

Hi Everyone,

Last Labor Day weekend 2009 we held our 2nd annual Indianapolis DIS meet. Approximately 80 Disney fans attended from as far as Northeast Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, Chicago, IL, and all over Indiana.

Here is the link to last year's thread and meet pictures.
http://www.disboards.com/showthread....polis+dis+meet

The intent of the meet is to get to know other Disney enthusiasts like us and have some fun and laughs along the way. Like last year there will be no cost to attend this meet. We just ask that you bring a pitch-in item for the food table.

This meet is open to anyone willing to drive or even fly to the Indianapolis area. We'd love to have you join us. I'm hopeful to have several Hoosiers and other friends from other states join us in the Indianapolis area. If enough out-of-town guests join us we may have additional activities on the Friday night before the meet or the day after.

Please see below for meet information and details. Check this thread often for future details. We are planning an afternoon worth of fun Disney activities for kids and adults alike, prize drawings, contests and even some secret fun! We'll have more specific information the closer we get to Labor Day weekend.

Between now and Labor Day weekend I'll be updating this thread with meet information and attendees who will be joining us at the meet. Please post if you can attend the meet, how many guests will be joining your party including children and their ages. Even if you can't attend please post just to say hi!

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions feel free to post them here or send me a private message (PM).

Hope to see you at the meet!

I also wanted to let any of you Indy area WISHers that we have a WISH meet on Friday May 7th. There is a group of us coming into town for the 500 Festival Mini Marathon and we will be getting together at The Old Spaghetti Factory on S. Meridian.

They don't take reservations and open at 5:00 that day so I am going to get there to put in our names and try to get a 6:00 seating. If anyone is interested, even if you are not doing the marathon, come buy this thread and introduce yourself and let us know you will be there. I am keeping a running count on post #133 of the linked thread.

Count us in.

Depends who comes with me - maybe 2, maybe 4.

Will probably bring some kind of cookies, since they travel well.

It won't be awkward at all, you definitely should go!

I did my first DIS meet almost two years ago and I've gone on to make some friends that have become my best friends... you never know!
From what I've seen (and me and my wife included), DISers are among the friendliest people you will ever meet.

I'll bet you a mickey bar that if you go you wont regret it

The Indy Meet was my First Large Dis Gathering last year. I had a great time. Just don't be shy about meeting people and you will have a great time.

Wow, that looks like fun!

Middle daughter wants to go, but I suspect she hasn't realized it'd mean she misses ballet that day. Guess I need to try to find out when Nutcracker rehearsals start before we decide. Last year rehearsals started before try outs were over.

I'm too lazy to check the dates, but last year we went to Myrtle Beach early September (first full week, I think), and she was going to miss three rehearsals. And they have a "you miss two rehearsals and you're out" rule. I pointed out that the second round of auditions wasn't until we got back, but apparently the second round is really meant for the little ones; the older girls who start rehearsals earlier are expected to audition the first time. They offered to set up a special class for her as make-up, but in the end they canceled two of the three and we just let it slide.

But if they place her up a level at the end of the semester it's probably early September rehearsals again. They take Nutcracker Very Seriously at her ballet school, I'm tellin' ya.

George & Deb will be there this year.

I could sign up for a number of things but would need a kitchen. This joint have a proper kitchen Aaron?

I also hear tell there is an Amaretto Lobby Hotel close by? Can we stay there?

Plan to leave late Thursday night for a check-in arrival on Friday. Long drive but will be worth it.

Glad you are both coming George! It will be great to see you guys. The place does have a kitchen; however, I don't think anyone has used the stove. There's a refrigerator, sink, and microwave.
Let us know if there is anything we can do for you guys to make your trip a stay better.

Sorry I'm just getting to this Aaron. We've been a little busy.

Both Phillip and I will be attending this year! Sign us up. I'll figure out what we're bringing later.

I have a Club 33 2009 Holiday pin (only available for purchase at Club 33 in Disneyland) as an item to donate for the silent auction.
