GKTW Meet: Potential First Canadian Bash, August 11, 2012

I have asked for any interest in on the Canadian board, but considering how close we are to the North East US, thought I'd check in here.

I am doing some early planning for a summer GKTW fundraiser in or close to Halifax. Just trying to get some numbers of those who may be interested so I know which venue to try and secure.

btw I am in a unique position as very dear friends of ours experienced the GKTW journey with their now deceased son.....probably thinking that my local, non Dis numbers may be higher due to this.

Hope on in and join the fun!!!!

Event is a GO!!!!!
August 11, just outside Halifax. We have a local family restaurant/pub reserved. Going to have a great afternoon of food, music, auction, raffles and good ole socializing. We have a great team ready to raise money and ensure a good time is had by all.
Tickets are $10.00 each for 9 and over (keeping with Disney). With each ticket bought, you will get 5 ballots/tickets to the penny auction. If you can't make it, but want to contribute, we have a team ready to sign your name to your ballots and randomly deposit them.

Thanks Nikki, I wasn't sure where to put it because I don't have a date nailed down yet.

Hey everyone! We're planning events around the actual date of the DisMeet in case anyone wants a little extra fun!

Here's Sunday's rough itinerary!

Look for more details tomorrow night (just got home from job #2 and I'm wiped) but essentially we've changed the order of things a bit. We'll meet at exit 11 in New Minas at the Irving (may be possibility of carpooling for some from the city), travel out to Halls Harbour to do some wandering around, picture taking, gift shop partaking etc.

Then on to the Blomidon Lookoff for a short picture opportunity, then to Blomidon Provincial Park where we will have our corn boil. Lots of opportunity to play in the sand, the mud flats, walk the ocean floor, visit with each other. The tide will be almost all the way out so the reason why we have the distinction of having the highest tides in the world will be pretty evident!

From there for anyone that would like to go fossil hunting we'll continue on to Blue Beach!

I'll have a full itinerary, with times, local maps in case someone wants to divert from the group and rejoin us for any reason, and more pretty soon! Now I just need a head count so I know how much food to bring!

Did I miss the recap of this event? I can't find it anywhere on the boards...

I was so sorry to have missed the event, but I was away at the D23 Destination D event in California, and just returned yesterday.

Hope it was a great success and lots of fun!!!

Hi! No you didn't miss a recap. We were, for the most part, going to let Kathy and Teresa tell all about it on the podcast but we did AWESOME! We raised over $5300 and still counting!!!

There was laughter, tears, singing, dancing and best of all ..... lots of friendships formed...oh yah, and mud...there was mud involved

The closer it gets, the more excited I am! I have to admit, I'm so excited to meet Kathy and Teresa. I feel like I'm meeting celebrities who are also friends. I've always wanted to Facebook friend you ladies but I've felt like a creeper. Now maybe I can legitimately!!
