    [​IMG]
    Thanks to everyone who came out from as far away as 6 hrs to help raise money for GKTW!! It was an awesome weekend. The committee is going to meet in a couple of weeks and discuss the highs and what could be changed for next year. Yes you heard me right...there will be another meet next year. Although we will have to look for another weekend as some will be on the Alaskan Cruise.​


    The Grand Total is in...
    $8420.00
    Thank you to everyone who donated. The committee is overwhelmed by the total. We can't wait to see what next year brings

    My in-laws live about 45 mins away from Hershey and would love to come if I can make the dates work.

    We hit up Hershey at least once or twice a year - though we split our time between Hershey Park/Chocolate and Troegs Brewery which is right next to the park

    we live about 8 hours from hershey in ohio, but we have family in hershey. We have been thinking about a trip to hershey park for a few years, I think this might be our reason for a trip! We have never been to a meet, but love the cause. I can't wait to hear more details. We are excited to come. Let me know if out of towners can help at all!

    Jim and I are going to meet up after the new year (and because that is when I get back from WDW) and work out some details on what we will need and what we have already.

    I think we have the food secured up for Saturday afternoon...My DBFF works for a local restaurant (deli sandwiches) and she is willing to cater it for me at her cost. Once the new year starts we will be getting more and more info out.

    Are planning on attending and would love to make hotel reservations sooner rather than later. Any more progress?
