    I have to add my thanks and congratulations as well.

    This was a well run, fun, organized, exciting weekend.

    It was great getting to meet folks for the first time and reconnect with folks we've met before.

    Thank you for being so welcoming and so responsive.

    Thanks also for your amazing generosity.

    I am humbled.

    First post!!! :cool1::cool1:

    I would like to thank Corey for fixing my account today at the podcast meet. :)


    And a big thanks to everyone who helped organize this awesome meet! And thanks to the podcast team for coming up here.


    The best part of the meet was the food. I have to eat gluten-free and I got gluten-free pizza, cupcakes, and cookies. :love::love::love::worship::worship:

    My 1st time posting on this thread and my first Dismeet. I was able to go to the podcast today. I was solo too, Krista, and I totally agree with you- Tara made me feel very welcome! I had a great time - Dis unplugged, friendly people, great cause- what's not to love? ! I met Kevin, Julie & Craig - all sweethearts! And I met Pete's mom too -a lovely woman. Can't wait to go back next year.

    Just wanted to thank the entire team of Divas that pulled off an amazing event again!! I was excited to come and see my old friends and make some new ones this weekend.

    It also was a good for the soul type of visit to Massachusetts to see the Army base I used to live on and share it with my daughter.

    I am tired and sad but know in my heart what a truly wonderful weekend it was. I have said it before and I will say it again I lucky I am to truly have friends around the world because of the DIS, GKTW and the internet. My life is richer because of all of you.

    Way to go NE Divas!!!

    It was a great weekend...so good to make some new friends and touch base with old ones..Hi Kathy!!! Got to spend a bit of time getting to know some posters in person..Hi Jeff and Val!!! And getting to spend some time chatting with Kevin was terrific. Glad I got to do that. So, even if I didn't come home with any costly items, it was still all good!!!! maybe next time.

    Great job on the meet! I could only make it on Friday night but had a ball. Boy, those trivia questions were hard! I don't suppose I won any of the raffle (drop a ticket in a canister) items? Also, will you post the winning bids on the silent auction items? I'd love to see how much everything went for and how much we raised! :thumbsup2

    Thanks again!!!

    I had a fantastic time this weekend. Just want to thank the entire NE Dis Meet Planning Committee for all of their hard work. You guys did an incredible job and should be tremendously proud of yourselves! :banana::yay::cool1:

    It was great to see everyone, and to make some new friends! I won't be able to go to Nova Scotia or Indianapolis, but hope to see lots of you at the Delaware Meet in November! :goodvibes

    Thanks for the hard work all the organizers did to put this meet together. I was so impressed!

    Special thanks to OKW Lover for bring us around and making introductions. I am terribly shy so you were a lifesaver!

    Hopefully next year we'll be able to make it for the full weekend!
