    Hi Everyone,

    Last Labor Day weekend 2010 we held our 3rd annual Indianapolis DIS meet. Approximately 120 Disney fans attended from as far as Ohio, Florida, Iowa, Delaware, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, Illinois, Canada and all over Indiana.

    Here is the link to last year's thread and meet pictures.

    The intent of the meet is to get to know other Disney enthusiasts like us and have some fun and laughs along the way. Like last year there will be no cost to attend this meet. We just ask that you bring a pitch-in food and/or drink item to share for the food table.

    This meet is open to anyone willing to drive or even fly to the Indianapolis area. We'd love to have you join us. I'm hopeful to have several Hoosiers and other friends from other states join us in the Indianapolis area. If enough out-of-town guests join us we may have additional activities on the Friday night before the meet or the day after.

    Please see below for meet information and details. Check this thread often for future details. We are planning an afternoon worth of fun Disney activities for kids and adults alike, prize drawings, contests and even some secret fun! :goodvibes We'll have more specific information the closer we get to Labor Day weekend.

    Between now and Labor Day weekend I'll be updating this thread with meet information and attendees who will be joining us at the meet. Please post if you can attend the meet, how many guests will be joining your party including children and their ages. Even if you can't attend please post just to say hi!

    If you have any questions, comments or suggestions feel free to post them here or send me a private message (PM).

    Hope to see you at the meet!

    Hi - The meet will be held on the northeast side of Indianapolis, but the exact location is not known yet. I'm waiting to get a better idea of the number of attendees before picking a venue.

    Hope you can make it. :)

    Hi Guys,

    I will be there in September.

    I have pictures that I took from last year (this includes pictures that were not shown in the 3rd annual thread) on my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/album.php?fbid=105850859484918&id=100001800140716&aid=8284&l=8630575da1

    I am getting ready to go to WDW in May so I will be thinking of you guys. I made pineapple chicken last year in honor of Hawaii resort. Not sure what I am going to make this year. If you guys still need someone to take pictures I can do that as well.

    I will bring my pins to trade as well. Hope to see the young pin traders there in September.

    Mike
