10/24/2009 Bash on the Boat Cruise (I'm with BOB) Chapter #10

This is Chapter #10 of the BOB threads.

If you're new to our group, you're not alone. Several of us have sailed together before (on the 10/20/07 Western Cruise - a.k.a. Konked Kruisers) and several more are new. To indicate the ones new to the group, we have put an * infront of their DIS name. There are 13 new DISers and 19 returning KKers.

Here is the link to Thread #1: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1653493

The following is the same as the other first posts. For those of you new to our DIS Meet thread - WELCOME. There is plenty of good info in this post.

As usual, I'll be back here to update this post periodically. I will try to keep important information up here for all to reference as well as for all our new friends who come to cruise with us. If something of importance comes up, PM me and I will add the link.

We have dubbed this cruise "The Bash on the Boat" because so many people are celebrating birthdays or anniversaries on this cruise. You will also see "KK2" in the title. As you will read, many of us just sailed together on the 10/20/07 Western Cruise. So, with many of us returning here, we are dubbing this KK2. For those of you who didn't sail with us, please don't feel that you are not part of the group. We are a very open and welcoming/friendly bunch. We had such a great cruise last time, but feel it will be even better this time. Come along and enjoy the fun. We will get off-topic many times over the next 2 years, but it is a great way to get to know everyone.

First, here is the list of Characters:

* 2Princes_&_1Princess = Brandee and Justin and their 3 kids. Florida.
A Fat English Gent = Chirs and Hazel and their 3 kids. England.
* arielhead = Tanya and DH with their DD (will be 14) and DS (will be 9). West Virginia.
B9erSteve = Steve and Laura. They will be traveling with their DS and DD. California.
* captchris = Chris and Elaine with their DD 9 and DS 7. Connecticut. (also) Chris' parents and sister.
* CarrianneB = Carrianne and Rob with their 2 DS who will be 7 and 9. Wisconsin.
Cheryl N. WI = Cheryl and Al with their DD and Friend who will be 15. Wisconsin.
cntkg1 = Nancy and Chuck (a.k.a. Charlie Tuna). Wisconsin.
* CRSNDSNY = Melody and EB with their DD (4) and DS (2). Pennsylvania.
Disgrits = Paige and Rob. Virginia.
* DISNEYDUET = Shelley and Woody. Virginia.
dizneycrazy4 = Janice and Mark with their DS(14) and DD(10). Wisconsin.
Dyerneeds/Tart Annihilator = Mike and Robin. Ohio.
* EPCOT_VA/Tinkerbell.RN = Matthew and Beth and their DD's who will be 10 and 12. Virginia.
goofyfreak = Lori and Scott with their 3 kids (also extended family). Virginia.
GOS = Heather and Rick. England.
* hockeychic = Kim and Mike and their DD who will be 17. Canada.
* JENNANDJARYD = Jenn and her DS who will be 12. Colorado.
JLDSMD = that is me, Jeff. I'm traveling with my wife, Suz and our DS who will be 9. Wisconsin.
* JOANNEL = Joanne and Roger. Florida.
Karen Mouse = Karen and Neil and their DS who will also be 9. England.
medicalman = Sean and Cath with their DD. England.
millerpjm = Jen and Pete with their DS who will be 6. Wisconsin.
minnieandmickey = Becky and Sean. California.
Morsel = Chris and Lynn. New York.
* Nerbie Pie = Bernie and Sean and their kids Bailey and Gary. Canada.
* Oybolshoi = Brenda and Jason. Missouri.
ST Cruisers = Tony and Stacy. Wisconsin.
Team Fun Pants = Kristin and Jesse. Wisconsin.
Timon/Darkrobe = Cass and Rob and their DD Kira (3 at the time of sailing) Canada.
* Verandah Man = Andy, Hazel and DD Angelina(19 at time of sailing) New Jersey. (also) Andy's mom Vi and her friend Walt from Florida.
Walt & Di = Walt and Di (pretty easy to remember that one). Texas.

I will try to update that list as we go. If I forgot anyone or if you want different info posted, please PM me. I will NOT be putting room numbers up on this post.

A good place to start for planning this trip would be Cass' website. She has done a great job to organize almost everything you'll need for this cruise and posting here on the BOB board. Here is the link to her site: http://www.cassworld.ca/bobers.htm


Here are links to posts that we found important through this and the previous 2 threads.

Incase anyone is wondering what the FO game we play here on the B.O.B. cruise meets thread, Jen gave a good explanation of the game:

FO is a game (for lack of a better description) that was started on the Konked Kruiser thread that some of us belonged to for the October 07 cruise. Don't ask me who started it or how, I joined that threead late.

Anyway, the game in a nutshell....if you post, and your post is the beginning of a page, then you try to get the second post on the page also. It means you have started a "Fresh One" or "First One" (I forget what the actual term was).

Now, this isn't always as easy as it seems - if there are multiple posters on at the same time, and someone else gets the second post, you don't get to "claim the FO". The 40 second rule between postings comes into play.

We had decided to stop playing this little game when the DIS instituted limits on the lengths of threads....but old habits die hard, I guess, because some of us still try to claim our FO's (I am guilty!). So, play, or ignore, either one is fine! We're all just about having fun and being fans of DCL one way or another here.

Thanks for starting the thread for us Andy

Can you remove Sheri (Tinkerbellmom1) from the list, she won't be joining us this cruise. She sent me an email awhile ago to remove her from the BOB site.

I think we'll get some more add-ons in the next year.

I hope our threads aren't intimidating!!!
