We need to make this the best RCMC turnout ever.

I'm so used to navigating MiceChat from New Posts, My userCp or the Forums page, it's no wonder that I didn't see the Anniversary announcement on MiceChat's Home Page.
I need to start doing my walking again so I can survive the meet.
I need to get a flash unit for my camera, since the onboard flash isn't that good.
Hoping that everything keeps together and nothing falls terribly apart between now and then so I can make the trip...

Just out of curiosity, is there no official reference to MiceChat's 8th anniversary? Is it to be all about MiceAge's tenth? In the past, they made the effort to not have the MC anniversary on Super Bowl weekend.
Nothings a sure thing in this life. Life is what happens while we are off making plans.
It sure is fun making those plans.
The focus this year will be on the 10th of MiceAge more than the 8th of MiceChat, and a lot of the festivities will be centered around Al. I think they had to move things to Feb. for various reasons... NAMM being moved to our usual weekend, schedules of our "secret" guests etc...
And one final reference to the "cost of things Disney" issue. It seems like some people here don't want to see anything negative posted about what Disney does. I run into the same thing with my Angel and other fan friends. Some, like me, can care about a thing or a team or a place and still criticize it, because they care.

The one year we had it on Super Bowl weekend, there was an activity for people to watch the game (in Dusty's hotel room as I recall). Hardly anyone showed (I did for the second half). So my guess is that its not a high priority for 95 percent of those attending.

Of all the people listed over the weekend, the man I would most want to meet is Werner Weiss. I was a Yesterland fan for years before I ever knew about MiceChat.
All contributions to the send Barry to camp fund gratefully accepted...;) just kidding.
I think I've met Werner.... trying to remember.... I know he's been to a couple of meets in the past I think....
Well I know my team won't be in the Super Bowl so no worries there for me! :lol:
Alright Tom.... I see you lurking down there....
Glad to hear you are planning on coming on Thursday Jody. That's the day that I change hotels. Actually I will be changing hotel rooms a lot. My timeshare hotel for the earlier part of my trip will require a room change. It's the only way that I could get 6 nights there.
I am buying my first AP, and hopefully it will mean another trip to Disneyland next year during a warmer month, or maybe I'll finally make a Halloween trip.
I see Lori peeking in. Isn't she on her vacation now?

My biggest challenge will be packing for a 10 night trip in just a carryon suitcase. I may be doing laundry on my vacation for the very first time.
At least all the motels have laundry facilities on site. I don't know how much they charge but it makes it handy!
I see our meet is the first week in Feb. Good chance I can make it.
A bit different this year, it's usually me, my daughter and 3 of her friends, all girls. This year, it'll prolly be me, my daughter, her best friend and their boyfriends. Good kids though, I like all of them.
I sorts talked my daughters best friends boyfriend into getting into the electrical trade. He started his apprenticeship a month or so ago. So far he likes it a lot. The guy is sharp and doesn't mind physical work; he'll fit in just fine.
