I know. I am going to have to start thinking of something now. I really hope I can make this event. I hope everyone wears a costum because it only adds to the fun. This sounds like a real ball or should say a real ball and chain event.

Yeah - probably not such a good idea. I was thinking of the size of the wings I'd need... SHEESH! :D :D

Guess all I really need to do is bring a bottle of rum. Yo, ho, ho, and all that... ;) ;)

Well I have to talk Tink into this. Oh no, I just realized it is on a Sunday. Oh this is going to be harder then I though. I promised Tink a weekend of snowmobiling up north and she has really been looking forward to it.

I will see what I can do. I really, really want to attend this.

I have a question about coming in costume. Are we going to arrive in our costumes or are we just going to put them on at a certain time and display them for a contest or how is that going to work?

Cache Maine

Rick, (and anyone else thinking this same thing) I think some people are coming in regular clothes and changing once they arrive. We will probably vote right before the auction (roughly 3 pm) so if you wanted to change back, that would be probably the best time, after the vote, before the auction.

Looks like everyone had a great time by the pictures. I am really sorry I missed this one. I really wanted to attend, but I make Tink a promise of a weekend of snowmobiling and that was where we went. I am bummed that I missed this but on the bright side Tink and I had a great time.
