(I posted this in the Discussion thread, but figured a new thread is a better idea. I haven't had any coffee yet, that's my excuse)

Some older grumpier guy reminded me that I should be posting this here for those wise souls who avoid Facebook.

DisDad Club Convention #7 is happening Jan 9-13 2019!
It is still in the planning stages, but so far we're around 35 DisDads coming in for this convention along with our (growing number) of local DisDads.

As with every DisDad convention, family and friends are welcome to all events, though we do ask that you let one of us know if you are attending and with how many so that we can add you to reservations. There will probably be a group pickup for the picnic, but getting back is up to you (we recommend Uber or Lyft) since we will be enjoying a dram or two of rum once the picnic starts.

I will try to remember to come back and update information as we firm up other plans.

We hope to see you there!

    You are the list keeper! :rotfl::rotfl2::lmao:

    Sure, it's a different web site, but it's still the same internet and Club! :surfweb:

    This does sound like him.

    The Keepers of Lists are an ancient and secretive yet humble order of monks who got bored of practicing Gregorian Chants and instead took as their sacred calling, the grand responsibility of maintaining "the lists". Lists were submitted by apostles all over the world. The Keepers allowed their apostles to vote on list items & submit new lists in order to develop the funniest David Letterman style Top 10 (and more) lists available on the internet today and for all time.

    The order went into seclusion in late 1996. The website the bears their name is presented in honor of the brothers & sisters of the original Order of the Keepers of Lists. It is the goal of the new brotherhood to re-establish the grand traditions of the order and do justice to the memory of the founding Keepers.

    In honor of the original Keepers of Lists, they maintain an archive of the Ancient Lists from the original website (found -after exhaustive searches- on dusty scrolls (lost to the world, not quite as long as the Dead Sea Scrolls) tucked away in the dark corners of the Internet.

    PS: The monks are a fun loving bunch that manage to find excuses to party all the time, drinking great quantities of mead & grog while stuffing their faces with mutton. Come hang out for a while. The door to the monastery is always open.
