Meet up tonight?

Anyone interested in doing a little meet up in one of the bars of either the marriott or the sheraton tonight? I was thinking around 8pm when most people should be heading back from the big E. Let me know if you are interested and If 8pm sounds good.

Sorry I missed out on meeting you folks. The crowds got to be a bit large, so we bolted. Check is being mailed for GKTW

Great day.....Yankee Candle was a fun time....and I know the Big E is just more fun. Thanks Tara and Crew for putting together a great way to help the Power of 10 reach its goal. Looking forward to the Brunch and Live PodCast tomorrow. :-)

Thank you guys for doing this! We had a great time at the Big E. where else can you get chocolate covered bacon, slim Jim's and combine them all with adult beverages! We have to miss the podcast to participate in our town's parade today, which is not an easy choice to make.

On behalf of our son (5 year cancer survivor this month), I'd like to make sure everyone realizes how much it means. But you already know. Good luck today!

I woke up with a migraine so bad that even my teeth hurt. I'm upset that I had to miss the festivities today but I am close to 1.5 hours away from Ludlow and all I could do was lay in a dark room for a few hours.
I'm sure you're having a blast right now and I cant wait to listen to the podcast!

The mini-meets turned out to be tougher than we thought...we were shut out of the circus 30 minutes ahead of time, but a few of us managed to meet up for the hypnotist including Corey and Julie.

I think we managed to break $14k after the live auction of the signed hydroflasks!

We were seated near the front of they hypnotist show because DW (disneynan) wanted to get onstage for the show. She was hypnotized onstage and the kids and I had a great time watching the show from near the stage, but missed our opportunity to meet with fellow DIS'ers. Very interesting show, awkward watching the "Suave and smooth" guy who had to try his best one liners on the hypnotist every time they played Barry White songs though.

Glad to hear that the event was a success and I am really looking forward to the podcast. Safe travels home everyone.

We were standing towards the back in the middle...we left a little before the end but it was interesting to watch.

Podcast was recorded at the brunch. Final total was definitely over $14,000.

We'll try and get some photos posted this week! I took a bunch during the podcast recording and there have been quite a few posted on FB so far.

It was an amazing day! We're all exhausted but totally thrilled with how it went!

Bring on the NE Dismeet in 2013!!!!!

Smile Thanks !!!!!

I just want to thank the organizers once again for this wonderful event. I brought my family to the Big E on Saturday and was very thankful for the special rate you were able to secure at the Sheraton in Springfield as it saved us a long ride back "South of the Border" to Connecticut. The brunch on Sunday was AMAZING!!!!!! I was thrilled to meet Peter and the rest of the gang from Florida as well as my fellow Disney Fans. Cannot believe we were able to raise 14K+ for such a wonderul organization. Thanks again and we are looking forward to hopefully another meet in 2013

We'll try to get them posted on the boards tonight.

If you are friends with any of the podcast team on Facebook then you will find photos there as well!

Someone is working on a video scrapbook as well that will also benefit GKTW!

Glad you enjoyed yourself! We had a great time at the Big E as well. Our first time!
