So the question becomes - do we all keep our dates and just NOT do F&W Classic or do we switch things around? I know Diana can't come the new September dates and I'm inclined to want to stick with what we've got.

I guess we'll need to make some decisions.


As far as the Army bases - I have no say in that. I work for U of MI, not the Army!

The new dates really don't work for us either. My school year begins the day after Labor Day and taking time off within that same month is just not the best idea. I think we will keep our original dates. But I may look elsewhere for my lodging. They shot themselves in the foot over this.

I know you work for U of MI.... but I want them to send you here!

Hope your travels today go well. Let me know when you get home, please!

myBob and I are inclined to keep the same dates we had already booked. Might look for new accommodations since there doesn't seem to be a reason to stay at the Dolphin. I will have to look into it.

Let the birthday party planning continue!

Laura - I did get your texts last night but it was too late by the time I got home to answer. Hopefully today we can connect!

Sounds like a plan!

Having had a couple days for this to all sink in, I feel our original dates are what we should stick with (as long as they work for everyone's schedules) and it's Swolphin's loss! There will still be plenty of things for us to do at Epcot, don't you think?!!


Boy is it good to be back home!!

I've been working 12-13 hour days at Ft Carson in Colorado Springs. One more work day, then a LONG travel day home Friday!

I think it will be more tolerable the next couple days!

Then I have a week off - then 12 days at Ft Bragg.
hope you made it home safe and sound and not too cold....

I will not be able to keep the old dates, we were going only for the meet and the wine and dine...

Crap, this is not good...

Unfortunately true

I'm not happy with Swolphin. If 10/12-13 wasn't "confirmed" they should have posted "tentative dates 10/12-13" on their site.

I'm so sorry we won't get the chance to see you in October.

How are you feeling? Better every day, I hope!

I like the "crap" in the title idea, but not sure the Mods would approve. (that, plus I can't remember how to edit the title!! )

I'm not sure WHY Swolphin made the change, but that's also the first weekend for Epcot F&WF so, even with the ToT race, I don't think that was the wisest decision.

October (historically) is a BIG convention month at Swolphin so they may have landed a big convention and had to change dates. Things hadn't been as busy (convention-wise) in October the last couple years and I think Swolphin was grateful for the business they got during F&W Classic. (just guessing here! )

It's a shame we're going to miss it, but given the choice I'd much rather celebrate Diana's 39th birthday with her than attend the Classic.



JD is feeling like crap today. Poor guy - it's the middle of the day and he's in bed asleep. He usually "power naps" in his TV chair, but this is very unusual.
