    (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.
    A great many Dads are staying onsite, but we have rented a group house as well that has filled up with 16 Dads.

    So far the official get togethers are:
    Jan 9 - tbd
    Jan 10 - Biergarten followed by a hearty exploration of fermented beverages at locations to be determined (World Showcase/Boardwalk/DisneySprings)
    Jan 11 - Picnic at the DDCC offsite house
    Jan 12 - MK is park of the day, evening tbd
    Jan 13 - tbd (likely a brunch)

    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!

    Lol. :thanks:
    I love it when you guys make me feel special. In a Yellow school bus kind of way, but as long as it drops me off at the parks i’ll ride it with a smile.

    We're doing a live update on the DDCC planning tonight at 7pm CDT. Unfortunately for you non-Facebookers it will be a Facebook Live thingy, however I will update here with the plans so far either be tonight (if I'm sober enough) or tomorrow (most likely)

    The live show will be on Youtube as well as the FB page (you don't have to have a FB account to see it). You should also be able to get there through http://disdads.club when we go live in about 20 minutes
