UPDATED WITH SCHEDULE!
What will you celebrate January 31 through Feb 1st 2009? MiceChat's 4th anniversary!
Happy 4th Anniversary MiceChat!
You may just be 4 years old, but you have given us so much to celebrate. In the past year, MiceChatters have met and fallen in love, been married, had babies, countless friendships have been made, trips have been planned, endless hours have been spent discussing topics of every sort, and we have mourned the passing and celebrated the life of a dear friend.
MiceChat is a virtual world unto itself. Each of you plays a role in this intricate system. You all hold a bag of pixie dust. Once a year, we celebrate our zany MiceChat-ness and, as one, throw our pixie dust into the air and enjoy a most amazing weekend of friendship.
This year, we've added a few special ticketed events. Please read the schedule below carefully as some events are limited in size and require a ticket to be purchased in advance. Due to the inclusion of Alcohol in these ticketed events, you MUST be 21 or older to purchase a ticket or attend these few ticketed events. Please note: For the special ticketed events, each individual must buy their tickets separately. Therefore, if there are multiple people that you will be paying for, you will need to register them one at a time. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Lodging:
As always, feel free to come and go from the events below as you wish. The goal is to enjoy yourself!
