I'm not in AZ, but not too far of a flight. I would definitely be interested in attending depending on when the event is held. If the date works for me, I would be willing to help with last minute stuff or anything that I can work on from home.

From an organizing stand point, I've never done anything quite like this, but I would definitely sit down and make a list of exactly what you want to happen (events, meals, seminars, whatever) and then work keeping that mind as you look at locations and costs. Then maybe figure out how much you want to delegate and how much you want to have controlled by one person.

Good luck with this project!

I really hope it works out!

Hi there everyone! I took someone's advice and started a Facebook page for our hopeful AZ DisMeet. It might be an easier and quicker way to communicate ideas and information to each other! We'll see how it works. If your interested, look up AZ GKTW Meet and friend request "me". Hope to get in contact with all of you who are interested in helping soon!

Hi Nicole -
Old Tucson has has a Facebook page. If you go onto their website it lists what they have according to what type of event you have. They have events from 50 to several thousands of people and different buildings available or we could plan an outside event. They have gun fights, girl revue shows, and stage coach rides which is an additional cost. I am not sure how or if we could incorporate Disney characters as this is something we would need to call and ask about. They have all sorts of menus available like Hot Dogs and Hamburgers to a more formal type of meal depending on what you were looking into.

Life has been a roller coaster, I passed my boards so I am a Licensed RN now. Things seem to have calmed for the moment. Maybe the first place to start is to have those on Facebook throw out ideas after looking at what Old Tucson has to offer.

I was wondering if you could share your vision on Facebook so we can start there and build on what you have dreamed/thought up.

Hi there, I'm from Tucson too and would love to help out with this. I just sent a request on Facebook. I don't know much...ok anything...about event planning but I stay at home right now so I have plenty of time to help out and figure things out if help is needed. I've never been to Old Tucson, except once to Nightfall, but I do love Tombstone! I wouldn't mind driving out there either. From where I am in Tucson, they are almost the same distance lol.

I live in Scottsdale, but would definitely drive down for this event. I have no experience with fundraising, but the DIS people could probably give some good advice about other events they have attended.

I am from Western NY originally but am now living in Peoria, AZ on west side of Phoenix. I will keep an eye on this event and hopefully can make it. Don't know about being much use to you as a volunteer, as I've never been to Tuscon yet in the 7-8 yrs I've lived in PHX. But you can count me as a definite maybe for an attendee.

Hi! We live in Phoenix and we, my DH and I, would love to attend! Normally I would say we would help, as we are both have those type A event planning personalities, but we are expecting our first baby next spring so it is hard to commit to anything beyond all the stuff we already do! But you can use me for ideas and suggestions. I'm a foodie and love planning menus so I think I could manage to help with ideas for that! It will just all depend on when it is!

Hello everyone!
Well, we are fast approaching February and I hope everyone has recovered from the holidays! I'm finally settling in to my new job... Although I'm still working more than I'd like.... 6 days a week! I still want to make this meet happen, but given the change in my circumstances, I will need some help more than ever! So.... Please....please....please.... If you are at all interested in helping, please private message me! I would love to get a small team together to brainstorm and go around town and figure this thing out! I've left my 3rd message for GKTW requesting their fundraising packet. Maybe third time is the charm??? I'm going to keep calling until I get one! Please contact me if you are interested in helping make this happen!
