    I probably need to be driving back on the 10th, so the 9th works better for me.

    Another suggestion:

    What about swag goodie bags? The basic idea would be that everyone brings multiple of something (handcrafted, or something that represents them) (enough for everyone coming) and then drops one of whatever it is into each of the goodie bags. Doesn't have to be anything big or special and definitely not expensive, just something to remember the people at the event by. Geocachers call them signature items, I have a golf pencil, a geocoin, and a pathtag that I use as my sig items.

    Anyone?
    I caught you a delicious bass.

    The 9th or 10th is O.K. for me. I may even stay a few extra days. Still not sure if I'm going to fly or drive yet. Don't know if I will require a hotel room or a cabin because if I do drive I may bring my trailer. One thing I do know is that if I can come all the way from Northern Ontario Canada to attend the reunion, so can the rest of the Twelevers! Come on everyone say "YES" to the attendance list!

    Moscow, I really like your idea.

    Default wow!

    I get busy for a couple of weeks and miss signing in and SO much starts happening here! It's great! Now - this would take some creativity on my part - CAUSE - I have an invite for the month of September - to spend it with a 'friend' in Athens, Greece! I need at least 21 annual leave days for that! and a lot of dollars which will be next to useless there! I just used 3 annual leave days in May to work the Tennessee Renn Fest with Zoe - mostly so she could make a bucket of $$$ to use for university this fall! Came out of it with a fledgling business! I'll post something about it soon in the proper thread - it's exciting and fun! NOT giving up the day job - lol
    I need 2 more days this year to take another friend to medical appointments - that about eats up my annual leave for the year! - I'll have to carefully look at distance and gas and see if I can afford to take leave without pay and still do it! I WANT to - have to be careful though!
    don't wish to end up in debtor's prison after! SO - guess that means - put me in the hopeful column! I'll try to talk to Holli too! - she's on my myspace and she actually called me a couple of days ago! looking forward - oh - and if I come I'll bring Zoe too!

    GREAT idea moscow!!!! I'll get the bags.

    We'll keep the 9th as the reunion date.
    I am gonna visit the park and see the local hotel/motel selections this week. I'll see which one has a party room or outdoor pool area. If it's too messy for the park on the 9th we'll just party wherever we can. I can be very, very persuasive. TRUST ME!!! We will have a great place to party on the 9th.

    I already reserved #3 at the park for the 10th. Will check every week to see if there has been a cancellation for the 9th. This pavillon does not have electric - but that's ok I think.

    So for those that can come the reunion will be both the 9th and 10th. With the 9th as the main day with the main events. I am gonna stay in the closest hotel from Friday till Monday. I will prob get the biggest suite that a small town hotel can have. It will be the official welcome suite.

    So - bottom line so far.

    Official reunion August 9th.
    Moraine State Park near pavillon #3 picnic area.
    Bags will be provided for the "Tweleve Swag Bags", (see moscow's post)
    Chili, salads and soft drinks will be provided. No alcohol on the park grounds. However if you like there will be a cooler in my suite.
    what else did I miss here??

    Post here or give me a pm if there is confidential info as to who is going to bring something for eats or drinks. I know you all are traveling - some from a good distance. So you may want to provide snacks or something from the local area. There are grocery stores near here. It's not totally in the boonies.

    I would also like to know if there are any children coming. I would like to have some things prepared for them. Won't let the cat outta the bag on that one. But adore providing fun for children. Since mine are grown now I don't do scouting or little league or anything now days. Let me do my thing. Just kinda need to know how many.

    This is one addition to the Hopefully List that I'm happy to make.

    On another subject... some guy actually wrote to me earlier today and said, "I wasn't invited."

    *clears throat

    Everyone is invited. You are invited. Your children and your parents and your spouse/partner/significant other are all invited. We want you to come to our party.

    PLEASE COME.

    Jean, no kiddos for us.

    Brady, will every guest have swag bags or just the twelevers? For instance, will my husband and Anderson's parents and somebody's wife all get one as well? I'm trying to think through my swag options and also the need for additional RSVP's. And Jean, just how big are those bags? lol


    Have a good morning, everyone!

    I love the swag bags idea!!
    I'll definitely participate in that, and I think everyone ought to get one--or have the option of getting one, anyway. As Moscow said, it isn't about expensive--it's about remembering. So anything that makes us remember you is cool. I have just the thing for mine! (you'll have to wait and see!)

    LOVE IT! Thank you, Possum! Oh, I can't wait to meet you all!

    If we're going to do bags for everybody, then we need an accurate head count. Just tell me how many are coming with you and I'll keep track.

    Jean, I'll bring Sprite, Diet Dr. Pepper, Diet Coke, and Coke.

    Woot!
