    Well from the Podcast clues...it sounds as if maybe the DIS NE Meet may not be to far from my home location! I am super excited! Cannot wait for the final announcement. Oh and the tip about saving now for the auctions....AWESOME! Thanks everyone! :wave2:

    Each one can be a bit different...at the New England meet, we always have raffle items and a silent auction. We occasionally do a live auction of an item or two. We have trivia over dinner, which helps get people talking with each other. Sometimes we'll have different "tracks" where people can go to one of several places, or strike out on their own between scheduled events. Last year we did a "game show" as well, and we had a mini-golf "tournament" with some local members of the 501st Legion keeping the peace...

    We're still working on the schedule details for this year's meet...


    We generally have quite a few cool items up for auction...I know of a couple REAL cool ones, but they won't even let me drop a clue yet :(

    Count me in as another relatively new listener to the Podcast who is happy that the meet looks to be fairly close to home, based on the clues in this week's show.

    I love this year's location (not hard to figure out, despite T's efforts). Last year's was perfect for me but I am really looking forward to October and this one. Can't wait to see the itinerary and who is going
    Neat options in that area

    I'm really looking forward to this! This will be my first DIS meet too! Do you think a lot of people go alone? I probably will be!

    We will be taking guesses until noon on Monday for the location on the NE DIS meet. Send your guesses to nedismeet@gmail.com. One person who guesses correctly will win 25 raffle tickets! Hope you are as excited as we are!!

    Looking forward to my first Dis Meet in MA! I missed it last year due a family wedding. Can't wait to meet some fellow Disney fans.

    I'm almost 100% certain I know the location too! Great place. Looking forward to it.

    Same here.

    Might be able to get Mom to join us. Depends on venue.
    She likes to visit that part of MA.

    I think it was supposed to be announced live but Livestream collapsed under the load of everyone trying to find out where it is. :)

    I haven't listened to the recorded version yet, so I'm not going to jump the gun either...I've been warned about even giving hints of things :)

    It's at Jeff and Val's house. ;)

    I'm not sure exactly how much information has been revealed so far, or how much is nailed down, but we're meeting this weekend and we should be able to provide more details soon.

    We didn't tell you? You can't sell until October. We need it. Or at least inform the buyers that we will take i over for the weekend. ;)

    (congrats!)
