This is Thread #22 of the BOB threads. Over 80,000 posts and still going strong. If you're new to our group, you're not alone. Several of us have sailed together before (on the 10/20/07 Western Cruise - a.k.a. Konked Kruisers) and several more are new. To indicate the ones new to the group, we have put an * infront of their DIS name.

For those of you new to our DIS Meet thread - WELCOME. There is plenty of good info in this post. As usual, I'll be back here to update this post periodically. I will try to keep important information up here for all to reference as well as for all our new friends who come to cruise with us. If something of importance comes up, PM me and I will add the link. We have dubbed this cruise "The Bash on the Boat" because so many people are celebrating birthdays or anniversaries on this cruise. You will also see "KK2" in the title. As you will read, many of us just sailed together on the 10/20/07 Western Cruise. So, with many of us returning here, we are dubbing this KK2. For those of you who didn't sail with us, please don't feel that you are not part of the group. We are a very open and welcoming/friendly bunch. We had such a great cruise last time, but feel it will be even better this time. Come along and enjoy the fun.

If I forgot anyone or if you want different info posted, please PM me. I will NOT be putting room numbers up on this post. A good place to start for planning this trip would be Cass' website. She has done a great job to organize almost everything you'll need for this cruise and posting here on the BOB board. Here is the link to Cass' site Cass B.O.B. Information Site Here are links to posts that we found important through this and the previous threads. IMPORTANT DATES Online Reservations SIGNATURE LINE LOGOS Besides the logos you can find on Cass' site, here are the ones with the "Ship in the Bottle". DIS TAG More to come on this. If you see us talking about it and want to play, please PM Karen (Karen Mouse) or Jen (millerpjm).

The term FO was started by afeg. Anyway, the game in a nutshell....if you post, and your post is the beginning of a page, then you try to get the second post on the page also. It means you have started a "Fresh One". Now, this isn't always as easy as it seems - if there are multiple posters on at the same time, and someone else gets the second post, you don't get to "claim the FO". The 40 second rule between postings comes into play.
