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.
So, tell me what the weather will be like......
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!
Tickets for this event are $10.00 for an afternoon of music, fun and friendship. They are officially on sale now!
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 have stayed at Jagger's Point and it was lovely. Both of these campgrounds are on the other side of UCP from here. I'll ask around for places closer. There are loads of campgrounds in the Annapolis Valley which would put you half way between our event ant the park.
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.
Let me ask some friends and I'll get back to you!

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.
Thanks for the camping tips!
Definetely interested in comng, but I can't confirm until the first week of June.
Just a plug for our DisMeet
.its going to be a terrific time!
Heres 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!
Plus were 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 and the excitement is revving up
.all we need now is you!!!
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 dont hesitate to ask!!
We only have 40 tickets left for our event. Contact me if you need tickets.
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!!
We are going to have so much fun!! I cannot wait to meet everyone. Please be my friend on facebook!!!!
Please friend me on FB also. I can't wait to meet everyone.
