Thank you, Aaron, Kim and Anna
We all had a fun time. My sister in law said 'when is the next one?'
The only problem is that we met so many nice people, I didn't want to out bid them on the silent auction!!! You still raised a lot of money for GKTW, good job.

Thank you Pam for coming. It was a pleasure meeting you if only for a brief moment.

I thought the silent auction went over well. We had a lot of great stuff. All limited edition to unusual items. Some of them I wish I had. Darth Goofy kept looking back at me at my house for about a month. He was trying to use the force so I would keep him.

Aaron, the meet looks awesome! I know it's a ton of work, but what a great, great thing you do for DIS fans, Disney fans and GKTW. I really hope to make it one year. We do a family trip every Labor Day weekend, usually to an Ohio State Park resort and are thinking of going to Hueston Woods next year. Hueston Woods is about 30 minutes from Richmond, Indiana, is that anywhere near you?

Hi Lisa,

Thanks! And yes, it is a lot of work that usually starts in January when we start putting feelers out for donations. The meet wouldn't be what it is without a bunch of people willing to put themselves out there to help. This includes the DIS because without it we wouldn't have the communication mechanism to get the word out. I try not to take anything for granted and realize anything anyone can do to help us is very appreciated no matter how small or big it maybe.

I travel that way a lot because I have to go through Richmond and Dayton in order to get to NE Ohio. I'm familiar with Hueston Woods. I've never been there, but I've talked to a lot of people who enjoy it. I was just up your way October 26th & 27th and drove right by the Mentor exit on I-90. My brother in Ashtabula celebrated a birthday and we went to visit him.

Richmond is on the Ohio, Indiana border. The meet is about an hour away from Richmond in Central Indiana. If you continue on I-70 for about 50 minutes you'll reach Indy. I hope you can make it next year.

I know there are a few others who come to the meet from NE Ohio. I'm always grateful and impressed of those who come from such a long way to attend the meet. About the best compliment I could ask for is from people who tell me they came from a place far away and it was well worth the trip. Not only do they travel from far away to enjoy the meet they embrace the Give Kids the World aspect. We really appreciate that.

Thanks to everyone who donated to GKTW, and especially to my Tinkerbell Half-Marathon fundraising effort. Thanks to you, I'm now over a quarter of the way to my goal of $2000! I'm continuing to train, and am up to 10 miles on my "long run" days. Thanks again!

That's awesome Tony! 10 miles is quite an accomplishment. I have a lot to do before I get there.

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that this year's Indianapolis Disney Meet will be on Saturday, September 1st 2012. This will be the 5th year for the meet and we are planning some great stuff. Once again we will be donating the proceeds from the meet to the Power of 10 - Give Kids the World Challenge. Last year we were very excited to send a check to Give Kids the World for $3100.

For those coming in from out of town I will be providing a hotel option close to the meet site and blocking some rooms off for guests. I hope you can make it. If you have any questions about coming into Indianapolis please don't hesitate to ask. We hope you can make it this year.

We will be starting a new thread for the September 1st 2012 meet.

Count us in. Kyla fussed about having to go with us last year. But once there, she had a great time. We're interviewing for a companion for Wheels, so we may be bringing someone else, too.

To all of you please let me know if there is anything we can do to make your trip more comfortable. I know coming from out of town presents different challenges than someone who is local. If you have any questions about the area or need something before coming into town please let me know.
