***I am updating the guest list****Since we were mentioning Fall Palooza...I thought now that the holidays are over it would be a good time to remind everyone about our Spring event.

Spring 2011 - Angola, Indiana at the Potawatomi Inn located in Pokagon State Park. This is a lovely Inn, located in a scenic area on a lake. There are hiking trails, walking paths, an indoor pool, and a restaurant is located right in the building. Our rooms have 2 beds.

The dates for Spring are April 14-April 17. Some people who are traveling from afar are coming in on Wednesday the 13th, but you need to book your room SOON if you want to do that because the Inn books up VERY quickly. Rooms are either $86 (for 2 double beds) or $99 (for two queen beds with a little larger bath) per night plus tax. Two people can share a room, or even three people. Rollaway beds are available for $10 per night.

The price per person for the conference room for the entire weekend is $40.

As of right now, the following people have sent in their deposit:

Chelsea - received $40 deposit
Traci - received $40 deposit
Kim S - received $40 deposit
Kimmy K - received $40 deposit
Angie R - received $40 deposit
Kathy P - received $40 deposit
Sherri T - received $40 deposit
Mary R - received $40 deposit
Chris H - received $40 deposit
Jennifer E - deposit mailed
Suzi F - received $40 deposit
Joanne D - received $40 deposit
Kristi W - will give me deposit at March stamp club 3/19
Robin (stinkycheese) - received $40 deposit
Kristi W's sister may be attending....but we are not sure yet. I will know more soon! I also can't think of her name!




If anyone else is interested in attending, please let me know!! We only have until the beginning of March to finalize our reservations.

I'm working on it. Becca gets her license the week before so I can conceivably leave them alone. Hubby will have a confrence SOMETIME in April but no idea when. Joanne, Cheryl?? There is room at Hotel Ferguson on Wednesday if y'all want to come "halfway" and we can ride together.........

Thanks Suzi. I probably will go this year. If I flew up to St. Louis would it be a hassle for you to pick me up at the airport and then drive in with you and maybe Cheryl?

No probs at all. My van knows the route to the airport w/o me!!! LOL Last year, we left about 7:30 (much to Cheryls dismay) on Thur & arrived late afternoon (7 hour trip??) So, if you came in on Wed, that would work PERFECT. You'd have to deal w/my kids (I'll apologize in advance for them. LOL) for a day but it'd be FUN!!!

OK let's plan on it. Of course it all depends if I can get on a flight sometime Wednesday being on stand-by, which I don't think will be a problem. I may make up a package of my scissors, craft knife, paper cutter and anything else I don't think will fit in or be allowed in my carry-on case and mail it up to you. Should we make the commitment on Traci's post, shall I call the hotel to book a room, shall I send Traci my $40 room cost? I'm getting excited now.

So you are still coming?? You had me a little worried that night when we were chatting on the Helmar broadcast.

I was wondering if we should try to do some shoebox projects again. After last years marathon calendar making I am wanting to do different projects, in addition to all the Christmas cards I want to do. We should do something!

Kathy, yep I'll be there. Can't wait to see you and all the others.

Anyone who wants to do a shoebox project is welcome to bring one!!! It is totally voluntary! I will already tell you that I most likely won't bring one, but bring them on!

My only problem is packing! I never can seem to plan ahead what I want to work on so I end up trying to pack EVERYTHING (which is impossible). Maybe if I start now with the planning ha ha ha.

I updated the original list again on the first post. It includes notes of who I have received payments from.

Please call and put your deposit on your room soon if you have not already done so. There are 3 rooms left with 2 double beds and smaller bathrooms. There are 2 rooms left with 2 queen beds and bigger bathrooms.

The only person that I am unsure of at this point is Jennifer E. I need to pm her, but is anyone that only has 2 people in their room willing to take her as a 3rd roomie if she wants to room with you?? Otherwise I don't think I have anyone to match her up with.

Thanks!!!

02-14-2011, 01:26 PM
I have my room reserved & would be FINE adding Jennifer!!! (I'm hoping Joanne will be ok w/this too. LOL) We got a smaller room so maybe I should ask for the bigger one??? Am I going to be away from y'all if I don't change??

workin4stamps
02-14-2011, 01:34 PM
suzi---our rooms are usually not always right together. a few people might be together, but we're usually spread out. It doesn't matter because we're hardly in the rooms anyways..

as far as reserving a bigger room....that is up to you! I personally don't like the bathrooms in the smaller rooms because there is no counter space...but that is just me!!!

02-14-2011, 01:47 PM
So I'm counting 13 of us are going as of now?

workin4stamps
02-14-2011, 01:58 PM
does that include Jennifer E Sherri?? She's the only one I'm not sure of....I am waiting to hear back from her..

kimmyqtgirl
02-14-2011, 03:00 PM
Kathy and Jennifer and I have already discussed being a threesome if she comes. I know she wants to wait until it's closer to make sure everything is going well with her pregnancy. I think I better call and book our room:)

I'm assuming you've heard from Jennifer E. but I just thought I should post just in case because I am not Jennifer E. I did, however, receive an email and question about if I was attending so I don't know if you've been sending your questions to the wrong Jennifer or not? (Did any of that make sense? YIKES!)

Just to clarify...I received an email wondering if I (Jennifer E.) am attending. Just wanting to be sure you knew the error.

However, I wish I was able to go this year. I just couldn't make April work. I'm hoping that maybe...just maybe I can get in on the autumn Shack Palooza, if there is one.

Cheers!

Jennifer W.

oh dear...I am just now seeing this!! Was this email from me??? I assume that you would have just emailed me back if it was, but in any case, thanks for the heads up!
