    Drumroll please...and we have our location confirmed. Woohoo!

    Westwood Centers of Grapevine has generously donated the use of their Texas Room to us on October 1st for our event. I have put the exact address in the first post of this thread.

    Please put us down for two as a maybe. We would love to go. Just need to see what time the kids are playing baseball that day to see if we can make it. Thanks for putting this together.

    I'm pretty sure I have the list up to date at this point. I also added your auction contribution mommy2allgirls, thanks! We have several items that I am just waiting for them to arrive before I list them. Also once school gets back in session August 22 I will have more time to work on donations. I think things are really shaping up! Let me know if anyone has any questions.

    Alright,
    Just checked the schedule. I'm officially in. And does the deli do a veggie option?

    Hi Stitchlover- I'm in! I'm going to try to talk to my DH tonight about him coming too:)

    Also, we have a nutritional supplement business with AdvoCare... and we're willing to donate an Spark & Slam energy drink basket. Who do I need to talk to about that??

    Jennifer-I have you as a definite on the list (post #1). I do not know if the deli has a veggie option. But here is their website: www.weinbergersdeli.com If they don't have something let me know. I will be meeting with the deli in a few weeks and can talk to them about options they might have.

    Jaci-H i will add you to the list. Let me know if your husband decides to join us so I can add him to the head count also. If you would like to make a donation for the auction please just send me an email: msc2slc@att.net and we can go over the information. Thanks!

    I am planning kids activities for the event and my hubby agreed to take pictures of the event! Also, I was thinking of making name tags for us that have our real name and our disboard name for the event, what do you think of that?

    Just added an exciting new silent auction item. My roommate from the ABD February trip, Michael Landman (mikelan6 on the boards), just shipped me a set of Limited Edition Replica Mickey Mouse Club Mouseketeer Ears. They come with a stand. They are the sweetest thing. I think I have silent auction item that I am going to keep my eye on!

    Yes, these mouseketeer ears arrived in my front porch and we finally received rain in Aledo! It's still raining this morning. Hope everyone else in North Texas is receiving some. We might actually have to skip mowing the yard today because it's too wet. When was the last time anyone could say THAT around here?

    Please add me and DH, Carlos for the meet. So happy to find a local GKTW meet we can attend and can't wait to meet Pete and Walter. We attended Disapalooza in 2009 but the only podcaster we met was Kevin so this will be a real treat.

    Let me know if I can help out in anyway.

    Please add my son and I- William (4) and Michelle Peters. Might be bringing hubby along or sister/mom. Will confirm soon!

    Thanks Theresa for alerting me to this! :thumbsup2;) I haven't had much time to be on the boards as much anymore (stupid work actually expecting me to work). Can't wait to experience a little disney here at home. We are heading to the world just two weeks after this meet too! :wizard:

    I am very interested in this meet, but unfortunately only a maybe at this point, as we are allll the way out in Lubbock! (3 total - Lori, Bob and Alex (8 year old son)

    One question, though! California wines??? International wines??? No Texas wines!? Wait...maybe because we can get those any time...

    But seriously, if you would like to add something like that to the auction or silent auction, I know a few people and could try to get something together - whether we get to attend or not :) Anything to help!
