Yes, well, the only new detail on FB about the board games was that everyone was encouraged to pack a game.

And yes, "Kakerlakensalat" (aka "roach salad") IS a hilarious game - we have been having lots of fun with it, even though I realize it'll be a huge extra challenge for me to play it in English. Bringing that would be my preference too (unless I get more positive feedback for the other one, of course ...)

Could you post a google doc or excel sheet where people could just add themselves? Dis name, number of people(adult/child)


Oh, and a chilly -10 here this morning! DS's brave teachers will still bundle everyone up and start the day on the playground, glad it's not me

My Mom did the Disney Scavenger Hunt on the Disney Wonder for Hawaii and really enjoyed it. I'm not sure if anyone has a copy, but very entertaining when you have TONS of sea days and time on your hands to roam around the ship!

He had the surgery on 01/08 came home on 01/10. They had him up walking the hall within a hour of getting back to his room after surgery. He came home on crutches. Started PT right away, 3x a week. Within a week he was on one crutch and is now using a cane, when I remind him.

He was hoping to go back to work this week but the Doc, told him to slow down. He says he will try half days, but knowing him that will only last a few days. Fortunately he has a desk job.

Ask your Ortho about this product. https://www.djoglobal.com/products/d...iceman-classic
After PT and for pain control in general it is great! My dad's ortho prescribes it, so we borowed his.

I really like how you had all those different tasting seminars set up privately for you DISboarders. Does anybody know how those were organized with DCL, and if that is still possible?

DH and I would be interested in joining a couple of those, and in case the communication with DCL to organize this could be done via email, I could also try and coordinate it if there are enough people here interested. (Transatlantic phone costs are a bit too high, thus my email requirement ...)

What do you mean by "copy"? Is it like an instruction sheet? Would be nice if someone had that - I put it in the 2nd post under suggestions

Scott and I are in for the Game Night(s) - would love to play Cards Against Humanity and/or Ticket to Ride! (have seen both played, but have not played them ourselves).

We can bring Munchkin Zombies - a variation on Steve Jackson's Munchkins - "Kill the monsters - Steal the treasure - Stab your buddy." It's a card-based combat/role playing game that's pretty easy to learn - we're still Munchkin newbies ourselves.

We might be up for the PJ breakfast as well and would be interested in additional tasting events (a few non-alcoholic options would be nice) and the Scavenger Hunt sounds like fun, too!

Someone on the TA organized the Bunco game .it is something you learn in less than a minute and you get to meet fellow disers . Don't know where she got the Bunco. Sheets .She may have found them on the computer .

Finally settled our car and hotel situation .we are renting from Budget and the only drop off place open later than noon on Sat is at the airport. So we decided to stay at comfort inn and suites near the airport They provide a free shuttle from the airport to hotel and then the hotel to the port.
Thank Steven for your work but it did not work out for us

GROUP DISCOUNT HOTEL - DoubleTree

1/24/12 (11:30AM EST) - We had one person drop out of the group ... and I am waiting to hear back from one other person, who previously indicated they would like to participate in the Group Hotel Rate.

If anyone else is interested in a discount rate at the DoubleTree ... let me know ASAP.

Bob went with us to st. Thomas where he was nearly eaten by an iguana. His demise came aboard a converted tug boat on his way to the Bahamas. Someone broke in to the boat and Bob was kidnaped while hiding in a camera bag. As a joke some of us sent a ransom note to the association..... Such fun nonsense!

If someone is willing to take it over, here is a copy of Scavenger hunt we had on Hawaiian cruise. I can share pdf file to someone who can customize it for our cruise.

https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B-0M...l0djJtNDg/edit

I have answers to this too, just need to find my file somewhere LOL

We are looking forward to a nice relaxing cruise, but would be nice to meet some of you to make the cruise that much more fun! We will be traveling with my parents, and DH will be just 2.5 months post knee replacement. So probably a more relaxing cruise than some of our previous. I'll be reading along, looks like a great group!
My DH is getting his knee replaced Feb. 7 - they can swap stories. Also, his PT recommended that Iceman thingy as well. And a recumbent bike.

Scavenger hunt

If there is enough interest, I would be happy to organize a scavenger hunt.
Did this for the October Hawaii cruise.....was fun!

Please PM me here or on FB, if you would like to participate.
