SayHello -- yes, a cab to and from GKTW can be a little pricey. I am picking up some folks from Pop on Friday morning and there is room for one more in my car -- would be happy to have you join!

Alternatively, what time are you scheduled to volunteer on Thursday? I am sure I am headed over there at some point and I could easily swing by Pop Century.

Let me know if I can help!

Thanks so much. I'm scheduled Thursday from noon to 9pm. That's part of the problem, getting done so late. I'd really like to join the group, but I hate to leave GKTW short on Thursday (but I guess they're already short on Friday?)

I'm not sure why I'm so conflicted about this! Since you volunteer there so much, do you have a feel for how they'd feel about me switching?

Thanks,
Sayhello

OK, so I called back to GKTW, and spoke to a different person, and she was totally cool with me switching to join you guys on Friday. So I would very much like to take you up on your offer of a ride for Friday from Pop. I'll PM you my contact info.

Thanks!
Sayhello

Great! Yes, you are very thoughtful to be concerned about switching shifts...but after spending some time there, I see it happens ALL the time.

Giving several days' notice is fine -- the only real problem comes when people call at 7:15am to say they won't make it that day for their 7:30 shift. That becomes problematic. But your Thursday shifts will just go back into the pool and I'm sure someone else will pick them up!

Hey so is there still room for me and my mother? I've been swamped at work this week and now with finalizing everything to leave tomorrow, I haven't been on here to communicate with you! I just saw the other post about a taxi...ouch! That's mighty high for a cab fare. But I really want this experience and will do what it takes If we can still work it out, I'll PM you my digits, as we fly out in the morning.

I'd love to borrow one (or two)! My mother and I are new to the DIS gang, this being our first event! We'd prob have a LG and XL? Just whatever you have. That would be awesome!! We had signed up before this group got together so we are at the Carousel in the a.m. then Katie's Kitchen in the p.m. but I want to come see the group!

Hi DisMullins -- yes, you were the "other folks" I was referring to! Will call you and SayHello today to coordinate!

Looking forward to seeing you and others tomorrow

Just wanted to thank NikkiBell for organizing this. What a great time! I highly encourage anyone who is thinking about going to GKTW to volunteer to do it. We had an amazing time! THe tour was very enlightening as well.
