UPDATE (5/26/14):

The AZ Meet is going to be in Phoenix. The dates for this event are October 24th (welcome dinner at Dave and Busters), October 25th (main event, luncheon, silent auction and costume contest), and Sunday 26th (tentative trip to the Grand Canyon). Currently, Denise is working on the hotel situation, but she's already found a venue and catering for the main event. We can still use help securing items for the silent auction. If anyone is interested, please message me and I can get you a copy of the donation letter. We also have a survey we'd love potential attendees to take. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CTLQ988

We are going to open registration as soon as we can. We are still trying to figure out our overhead for the event so we no what to charge. We look forward to seeing all of you there!


Hi there fellow Disers! I've been thinking a lot about the call for a GKTW DisMeet out west. I've actually had this in my head for a while now. I live just south of Tucson, AZ and I've been thinking how cool it would be to have an "old west" meet...maybe Woody and Jesse themed. We have Tombstone close by, as well as Old Tucson which is an old west theme park (I use that term loosely) and movie location, which would both be awesome places to have a meet and podcast recording! The problem is that I just have no idea where to begin... It seems such a daunting task. Are there any in other Disers in AZ? Any that would join forces with me....any with prior fundraising experience. I have none! I really think this could be a unique and special event, but thinking about the logistics sends me into a tailspin! I'm full of ideas with no clue how to make them coalesce into an actual event. I'm asking for help from anyone in AZ, as well as advice from anyone who has put together something like this before. How can we make this happen???!!!???

Official dates have been set for the DIS Meet for Give Kids the World:

Friday, October 24 - Sunday, October 26
