    Hi everyone!

    For all those already on the list and anyone who lets me know you are coming from here forward:

    Please make sure you give me a list of your total party. I need to make sure I have a head count for food, etc. Thank you so much! I think we are already close to 30 people.

    Can you put me down as a maybe? I live in Austin, but I need to wait on soccer schedules for DS5 and DS7 before I can 100% commit to coming to Austin for the weekend. It won't be hard to tie in a trip to Legoland as long as we don't have soccer conflicts.

    Thanks for organizing everything. :)

    Suzette, please forgive me for not responding to the planning email. We went to WDW a day early so I've been away all day. I will respond soon though!

    Everyone else I can't wait to meet all of you

    Just heard about this tonight as I listened to the podcast (I don't always get to listen as soon as they're posted). I would like to come, and am excited that there is a meet and give kids the world event so close to home (I'm in Tyler). Will need to check with DW as she and my son will be at a Mom and Me campout that weekend. Make sure she doesn't want me closer to home in case something happens. But otherwise it will be me and my daughter (10). I also look forward to meeting Pete before the Podcast Cruise 3.0.

    In lieu of purchasing individual items from the GKTW wish list and having to figure out how to get the items to Orlando we are recommending and encouraging people to purchase gift cards to the merchants that GKTW has suggested. A list of those merchants can be found in the first post.

    Posting that list was a great idea. I was wondering how I could help. I couldn't think of anything to donate to an auction, but I can buy several things on that list, and maybe encourage others to do the same.

    By the way, my daughter and I will be there. Is the exact time and place (other than the date) still TBA, or did I miss it in one of the posts? It was still that way when I first saw the thread last night.

    I think this is a great idea and my husband and I would love to come, but I might have to be out of town that weekend. Would you put myself (Amy) and DH (Ricky) down as a maybe.

    Is Sept. 15th the confirmation deadline?

    Just thought about posting that Wish List today. Glad that it will come in handy for some folks. We are looking at 11-3 for the time I am hoping to confirm the exact address in Grapevine by tomorrow at the latest. As soon as I have it I will update the first post and post a message saying it has been updated.

    Amy-I will put you down as maybe. Yes, I think if we have everyone confirmed by 9/15 it will help with lunch and other supplies. I hope that is an okay cut off for people.

    Quick note to everyone...I have no idea if when I make a change to the first post if it is notifying all of you. So please note:

    I have added a note about a GKTW wish list and the fact that Weinberger Deli will be providing sandwiches free of charge for our event. I believe drinks and chips will be at our own expense but once I have an idea of how large our group is I will probably just plan to donate those items myself or try to get a local merchant to donate them.

    I'm in Houston, but could make a nice weekend out of it. Never have been able to go to a meet with my teacher's schedule
