    We gave up our mini season tix when DD turned 3, but we still try to get to as many games as possible.

    Glad to see there is some interest in a meet. I think at this point we probably need to decide on a location. I am happy to help coordinate any event held in Memphis, but will not be able to really help coordinate with an event in Nashville.

    Ok, Tennessee folks (and AL/MS)... let's decide.... Where are we going to have our meet?

    I would be very interested in attending a meet in Nashville. Memphis is a bit far for me (I'm in Knoxville).

    Late September works ok for me but I suggest we find a date that will permit Pete and Walter to attend.

    If we are leaning towards a Nashville meet, does anyone in the Nashville area have any ideas for a location/activity? I don't know the Nashville area very well...

    jcb- I completely agree with checking Pete, Walter, and the entire podcast crew's schedule before setting a firm date. From the sounds of the podcast, they seem pretty booked during the Fall months. What do you guys think about early 2012 (Jan, Feb, or March)?

    I had thought Disney on Ice too as was suggested for Memphis. Minnie, did you have a back up idea for something in Memphis? Anyone know if any Disney movies are due out in the next few months?

    I had an idea for a Nashville location that I hope pans out. When I hear, I'll let you know. I think early 2012 would be a good time to plan for the meet. I've planned fundraising events and they take some work. Late September would be really pushing it.

    Depending on when the event happens, I might be in Owensboro, KY. I am kinda flexible with my schedule so I will be waiting for a date/location!

    In that case, I suggest it be September 10. ;)

    Seriously, it would be nice to have a citizen of the state that a great son of Tennessee, Davy Crockett, rescued.

    Ok, Ok, I know, I know. PeeWee did not "rassle a bahr when he was only 3."

    PeeWee didn't "kilt" a bear when he was only three either. I think you might have just insulted all of Crockett's descendants. :rolleyes1

    Interesting enough (to me at least), next weekend I have a retreat at the bed and breakfast where Walt stayed a few nights during the filming of the movie.

    Fantastic!

    I agree that it does take some time to organize any event, especially fundraisers. For Disney on Ice (in Memphis), I had access to a few boxes at Fed Ex Forum so that was a pre-secured time/location/activity, but if we are wanting to start from scratch, which I think is a fantastic idea given the amount of interest in the Nashville area, it will definitely take some time.

    Let me know what you find out! I have some event planning experience, but it is great to know that you have experience with fundraiser planning.

    I have something I can donate the auction! Let me know if it is nothing! I work in the central women, but usually go home on weekends, but happy to do so! I would like to do in Alabama, but I ran away from home I can not complete this operation.

    Early 2012 works for me. I am happy to help in any way I can, although I don't have much special event planning experience either.

    Can I make a suggestion... Do both!! The Disney on Ice box in Memphis in late September and then a big bash in January in Nashville .., they are far enough apart that if you can make it to both great and if only 1 works that is fine too... We have alot of work to get to 1 Million dollars! Just an idea

    I thought "Rassle" would be more humane. There are Bahr Rescue folk on here, you know! :rolleyes1
