My in-laws live about 45 mins away from Hershey and would love to come if I can make the dates work.

We hit up Hershey at least once or twice a year - though we split our time between Hershey Park/Chocolate and Troegs Brewery which is right next to the park

we live about 8 hours from hershey in ohio, but we have family in hershey. We have been thinking about a trip to hershey park for a few years, I think this might be our reason for a trip! We have never been to a meet, but love the cause. I can't wait to hear more details. We are excited to come. Let me know if out of towners can help at all!

Jim and I are going to meet up after the new year (and because that is when I get back from WDW) and work out some details on what we will need and what we have already.

I think we have the food secured up for Saturday afternoon...My DBFF works for a local restaurant (deli sandwiches) and she is willing to cater it for me at her cost. Once the new year starts we will be getting more and more info out.
