I will be there plus going to try and bring a couple of friends. I am also working on an idea for a DIS/GKTW event in the fall looking into a Lowell spinners game.Far as an idea for a place to eat in Fitchburg they just opened up a Buffalo Wild wings in the area.

Sounds great to eat together after once you know the date I will tell all my home school friends it's a great way to see a movie while helping a wonderful charity!

I guess the cat's really out of the bag, with it being mentioned not once, or twice, but three times on the podcast(s) this week

As soon as it is confirmed, I am going to try to get flights for DH and I. Our youngest son graduates high school June 29, so that will be a verrrrry late night in our house. I suppose if we slept til July 1st, we could drive straight through, but would rather fly.......I'll be watching for details.

I was at our local Disney store where I used to work at and told them today about this. I told them I would call with a final date so looking forward to this.

I have put this as the first post but here is the info:

Hi Everyone,
I am pleased to announce the finalized details of the New England Cars 2 meet to benefit The Power of 10 and Give Kids the World. The meet will take place on Saturday, July 2nd at 10 AM at Cinema World in Fitchburg, MA. Doors will open at 9:15 and the movie will start at 10. I am still working to get 3D.

Fitchburg is located 1 hour west of Boston, 1 hour North of Providence, RI and 1 hour south of Manchester, NH for those of you flying in. There are a Sheraton 4 Points and a Courtyard by Marriott (with a Coco Key Water resort) close by for anyone needing hotel rooms but I would recommend staying closer to Boston if you are coming in for the weekend.

The Movie theatre holds 215 people so that will be the maximum number of people for the movie. Cost is a $10 donation and the ticket price will all go to Give Kids the World.

We are still working on a place to go after the show. A few of us are thinking a cook out type event at a local hall or park. This will allow for more socializing and we are planning some raffles and auctions. If you have any connections to business that may be willing to donate money to offset the costs or items for our raffle please PM me. There will be a small charge for the BBQ and as soon as I have that I will let you know.

As Pete & Walter have not been to New England in years I am really counting on the New England fans to show them a good time!!

Sounds great!! Do you want to have some kind of sign up sheet so you know about how many people will be coming? Or is it possible to sell the tickets ahead of time online so that people don't fly in or drive hours from out of town to get to a theater that is at capacity?

I have started a sign up sheet and will move it over to the boards in the next day or 2. I am also going to PM Everyone to confirm numbers. I am still trying to work the best way for ticket sales and to ensure things run smoothly!

I would like to attend as well, we live about 20 miles west of Fitchburg and know the place well.

There are 5 in the family, I just need to speak with "the BOSS" because we are actually at the beach for that weekend. We could drive back for this event though and get to meet more DIS'ers.
