I don't think I got to speak with you, but I did get to talk to your wife and she was extremely welcoming!

We were all nervous and a bit shy the first time we all met, but have developed some amazing relationships. Next time, just jump in and asked to be introduced if you are nervous about saying hello. We won't bite.

Part 3 DIS Meet

No need to be shy anxious or even nervous we are all potential friends. Well if I didn't post last night its because I have my mom and dad in from out of town. SO lets get back to Saturday's DIS meet. If you went great but if you didn't these pictures should help as to what went on at the DIS meet and greet.

One of our joys of going to the meet was doorprizes. These were given out on the hour starting at 2 o'clock. Naturally, the kids drew the raffle ticket that was given when we entered.So here are some of the kids drawing the doorprize tickets.

Here is the first drawing by the girl who had her face painted in dalmation style.


The kids found out they could draw a doorprize ticket so they lined up to do so. Several prizes were given out each hour.


More drawings by the kids in attendance.


This is a different drawing but you see Anna was a common theme throughout she just loved drawing those tickets.


This drawing was important for one lucky lady at the first table. Here is the ticket being drawn and I will show you the winner in a bit.


Now the door prizes were given out and people came up to claim their winnings. Everything from a set of Mickey's ears to stylish pens to gift cards were given out. The gift cards were in allotments of 25 dollars.

Here is one lucky winner now. He was over joyed at what he won. Sorry the picture is a bit fuzzy.


Here is another lucky winner.


Here they are showing the prize before the ticket was drawn.


Now I swear I was supper unlucky that day in far as drawings go because they called 854271 and 854273 and 854274. Guess what number I had? You guessed it I had 854272. Oh well win some lose some. Now I mentioned a super important drawing and this one all the ladies in attendence were hoping to get. I think they would have died if it went to a man. The prize was a disney purse I forget what designer but it was the one all the ladies were vying for. This is the winner.

Yes she was happy as a clam to recieve this purse. I am a guy what do I know about purses and what makes them popular.


This lucky winner of a door prize is modeling his new in fashion Mickey ears.


Well I have a lot of photos I could have shown on who won door prizes but I will stop here. At the end of my report I will give the url of my photobucket album and let you peruse through all of the pictures. Until then we also had a silent auction going on through out the day. Again there was a purse that a lady by the name of Heather was nervously watching. Hoping she would be the winning bidder. The auction raised quite a bit of money for those kids.

Here they are eyeing the auction that was just about to end at 5:50PM.


Another fundraiser for the charity they were raising money for was t-shirt sales. Bryan went to Michaels(I believe) and grabbed a whole bunch of t-shirts for adults and kids. He then screened the DIS Meet and Greet logo on there and sold them for fifteen dollars. He about sold out but he is asking anyone who wants to buy a shirt (the money goes to the children) they can get in touch with Bryan and order one via the mail.

This is Bryan at his table.


Thanks goes to everyone who pitched in for the doorprizes and those who bought t-shirts and those who bid on the prizes for the silent auction. The next report will be about mingling.

Mike,

I'm really enjoying the report and pictures. Looking forward to more. I hope you don't mind, but I'm uploading some of them to our Indy Disney Meet Facebook page.

Wow. I was excited, wasn't I?

That was me. I won the "grand prize" of the door prizes (at least it was by the standard of many ladies in attendance). It was a Dooney & Bourke Disney wristlet in the original white Sketch pattern. I already owned the black one with the colorful Mickeys, but not this one.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for posting.

Jennifer - Sorry I haven't responded to your PM.

We're planning on having the 4th Annual meet this year. I'm getting ready to secure the space, but I'm considering having it at another venue. I'm trying to forcast and figure out what the attendence will be like this year. I really liked the space we had the last 2 years, but I don't want to get something so big and only 30 or 40 people show up. Getting the word out about the meet is challenging so if you can spread the word; especially to Disney fans in your area that would be a big help.

The meet will take place on Saturday, September 3rd over Labor Day weekend. I hope you and your families can make it.

More to come very soon!

Count us in! Our trip is the first week of October, so this will be a wonderful way to get us in the vacation mood! It will just be my daughter and I (DH works on Saturdays). We will bring some Buffalo Chicken dip and tortilla chips, and probably som dessert. So excited!

Hi Amber - I'm going to post your message over on the 4th Annual Meet thread. This was the thread from last year.
