I'm not sure anyone has confirmed they will actually be at the meet yet... Other than probably Jagfanjosh who is our official organizer this year.

I know Rachel and I won't be able to make the official meet over the weekend because I'll be taking her parents to Universal (to avoid the F&W weekend crowd).... But we'll be in the area from the 24th-11/6 if anyone wants to get together outside of the official meet.

October is an awesome time for F&W Fest, it's slow and you can enjoy the kiosks at a pleasurably pace.

Enjoy the planned Dis meets or the mini Dis meets

Best wishes for all in the upcoming month's ... meets or just a good time

I'll be down 10/23 - 10/31. I've got a few dinners planned with my parents and my schedule is starting to fill up with F&W events as the info is released, but I should be around for whatever may be going on during that timeframe.

If anyone is interested in doing any F&W Events or tours, here's what I've got booked or plan to attend:

- F&W Mixology Seminar 10/25 6 PM
- F&W 3D Dessert Discovery W/ Sweet Seat Upgrade 10/25 8 PM
- Wild Africa Trek 10/26 12:30 tour slot

Most likely I'll add some of the daily culinary/wine demos depending on what the presenter schedule looks like when it's released. Last year I really enjoyed the Niege Apple Wine and Yachtsman Steakhouse demos. And the highlight last year was attending the Lasseter Winery seminar for ~$14 and getting to meet John Lasseter.

On a similar note, the Bristol Renaissance Faire in Kenosha, WI is still going on weekends through Labor Day (including Labor Day Monday). I won't be there this weekend but intend to be there the next Saturday, 8/10, for those interested.

Depending on how my foot is doing by the next to last weekend in August (Aug. 23-25), I might try to go to the Ren Faire on the 24th. That is the same weekend as my family reunion. I will let you know closer to the time. There is no way I can walk the Faire grounds with a boot on.

Also planning on doing the 3D Dessert party w/ the Sweet Seats option on 10/25.
ok, I have 5 minutes to drop a quick note...this has been a crazy week for me, 3 nights in a row I've been awaken for some major issue going on either at work or at home so I have had zero sleep this week...however, I did receive my TIW list of events for F&W and the menus for the kiosks....yeah...I'm gonna be fat and happy by the end of the week but poor. I saw a lot of the events I want to go to like the kitchen memories and party for the senses...OMG so can't wait!!

I'm already down close to 10 lbs in preparation for this year's F&W. Even with all the walking in the parks, I still gained 8 lbs last year.

I know some folks that attended Emily Ellyn's Kitchen Memories last year, and loved it. I've done the Discovery of Cholcoate event, and thought it was well worth it. I also had tickets to the Swan/Dolphin Classic last year, but accidentally embalmed myself at CT/BigE's shindig and somehow missed that event

Really curious to see the daily food/wine deminar schedule, but I heard that info may not be released until just before F&W reservations open.

well I may not end up going to some of the high end events over the weekend since I will be with someone who really can't afford to spend that kind of cash...but I do intend on going to a few of the daily mixology and culinary demonstrations. I went to one of each last year and decided I needed to continue the trend....

Maybe it would keep people off the old thread if we posted here at least every day. Someone should take charge. I am 6 months away from my wedding and DC is less than 2 months. I think we are both having issues with keeping this thread active. DC? Any comments on this?

Eh..... I'm just surprised they didn't lock some of the old threads yet.


Either way, the SSC has always gone thru slow periods, be it a weekend or even a slow week or two. That's nothing new at all. I'm not too concerned about this thread dieing out....Although I'll freely admit i've been slacking on my advertising of this thread in the Singles Profiles thread. anybody want to welcome the new people and invite them over here?
