    Wow, wish I could come ... I haven't been to the Maritimes since I was a kid (shameful, I know).

    Planning for our event is in full swing and tickets "officially" go on sale May 11.
    I am also very excited about volunteering at GKTW on April 30th!!!! No doubt I will be bringing back some goodies for our auction.

    You're going to love it....usually around mid to high 70's...low 80's is unusual but the low humidity (well lower then Orlando anyway) is going to feel great!

    I can't wait to see you Teresa and you'll love Nova Scotia so much you'll be planning a return trip!

    Still in the process of planning a camping trip to Nova scotia around the time of the fund-raiser. Anyone reccomend a good campsite near Upper Clemens park? Need 30 amp water and sewage for a 19 foot hybrid trailer.

    I just heard them talking about this event on the podcast from last week - I was very happy and pleasantly surprised to hear that something DIS related will be so close by! I live in NB, just outside of Saint Joh and I am hoping that we will be able to attend, if only to meet some of the voices who I love listening to :)
    Although I could have done without all the Canadian teasin, eh! All the best with planning your event if I can help at all please let me know.

    Thanks for the offers of help.
    I myself am just back from WDW and volunteering at GKTW, so I am trying to get my body off of vacation mode. I will let you know if we need anything.

    I would suggest that anyone who is interested in coming, to check in on ticket availability periodically. They are selling a bit faster than we expected.

    Okay, here's a start for you....

    This place is directly across the road from Upper Clements: http://www.upperclementscottages.ca/upperclements-RV.html

    This place comes highly recommended by some of my friends: http://www.dunromincampground.ca/

    And of course there's one of the best provincial parks to be found at: http://www.pc.gc.ca/pn-np/ns/kejimkujik/activ/camping.aspx

    Keep in mind these are all between 2 and 3 1/2 hours away from Halifax. If you need anything else let me know!

    We are just over the 1/2 way mark in ticket sales, so if you are thinking of coming, you might want to at least get some put on hold. We are going to hold tickets without payment until July 15.

    Boy it is going to be a blast.

    Just a plug for our DisMeet ….it’s going to be a terrific time! :cool1:

    Here’s the details again….
    Saturday August 11, 2012 at Angles Family Eatery & Pub, Lr. Sackville, NS (www.anglespub.net)
    2:00 registration & auction viewing/bidding (silent auction and penny auction) - Incredible door prize!
    3:00 music/ kitchen party
    4:00 prize drawings, auction bids awarded, more meeting 'n greeting

    Special guests from the DisUnplugged, Kathy Werling and Teresa Echols all the way from Orlando, will be joining us! :thumbsup2

    Plus we’re hoping to plan more events during the weekend, for anyone that would like to get together for a good time or maybe play “tourist”.

    Cost is $10.00 for those 9 and over (in keeping with Disney prices). Each ticket comes with 5 silent auction ballots. Additional ballots can be purchased for $. 50 each

    The auction prizes are piling up, the band is warming up :rockband: and the excitement is revving up….all we need now is you!!! :cheer2:

    Tickets are limited so contact HockeymomNS to secure your spot! And if you need help planning your trip, or need info on Nova Scotia in general, please don’t hesitate to ask!!

    Unfortunately I can't make it, we won't be heading to Nova Scotia until after the week-end. Like to make a donation though. PM me with the details

    The closer it gets, the more excited I am! I have to admit, I'm so excited to meet Kathy and Teresa. I feel like I'm meeting celebrities who are also friends. I've always wanted to Facebook friend you ladies but I've felt like a creeper. Now maybe I can legitimately!!
