I was very glad to see that I'm not the only Disney obsessed dad out there. I just won a Disney polo on an eBay auction that I will wear with pride on a golf trip in a couple of weeks. It just sucks it's not going to be at Disney! Need to plan to do that sometime.

Looking forward to getting to know you guys a bit more, this forum is great!
Welcome! Randall will be by soon to provide you with a club number. Pull up a chair and tell us a little more about you. Oh! and Norm will be by looking for dues. Not sure why he never gets them.

Refundable if you decide to cancel that trip (up to 45 days prior)

Had a better location at the hotel as well.

Good luck convincing DW!
Tanks guys...it was what I suspected, ad got DW a bit interested, but it helps to have a sound plan. It would go against the everyonther year plan, but hey, see what happens

Instead of Hilton Head (which I was a little excited to play some golf but that's ok) we are going to do a split week trip. 3 nights at a WDW resort (not sure yet but leaning towards AKL or WL) and then 3 nights at Tradewinds Island Grand resort in St Pete. So we will get our fix of WDW and still get a few days of beach relaxation. I think this will be good. Nothing like planning last minute though. We'll be in WDW 6/16-6/19 so I think I will get to spend Father's Day at the Magic Kingdom!!
Sounds like a great plan to me.
I too will be at WDW on Fathers Day; as a matter of fact I think that Scott and Zerf will also be down there as well in that time frame. I need to holler at them in the near and see if we can’t put together a meet or two. We’ll be arriving on the 15th and staying at POR through the 22nd. Hope to catch up with y’all at some point.

We’re glad to have you sir. As mentioned, Randall will get you a number assigned in the near and Norm will be looking for the dues (payable in Dole Whips and bacon).

Being as Norm also lives in central KY, you can probably get them to him without having to send them to his cursed mailbox.

I was going to Kroger tonight. I'll pick up an extra pack of bacon for Norm!

He has ridden with me several times before, but usually no more than 3 or 4 hours.
Nice!

I'm guessing DS's head is just about the right height, though.

Wouldn't that be "working out her recent frustrations ON some of her classmates."?

Afternoon guys.

started the week with meetings but now they are done for a couple of days so I'm checking out the new thread.

Youth sport coaches are on my agenda almost everyday. You have to commend them for volunteering their time but get some education and remember you are not playing for the world championship.

Happy birthday James and welcome to the new guy!

It is, but he's 3 years old. It didn't exactly stay in one place for very long at a time.

I called. They are full. Its just four year old T-Ball so not a super big deal. I'm just agitated that the brochure showed up the day the registration closed. Also, I found out the inlaws got their brochure weeks before we did. I'll know for next year to go online in March and take care of it.
