Followup on the Exhibit Moot
Oh, heck... still not hearing any definite preferences here... some interest in Columbus Day, but that's also opening weekend, so it might be hectic.

So, right now I've heard the following responses and preferences [edited - my tired mind had the wknds wrong]:

October 8 - Kunga, Ninq/Boo/SB, Dee/Hubby/Shireling, Graewolf? (Columbus Day wknd; also opening wknd)

October 15 - Graewolf? Ninq/Boo/SB, Dee/Hubby/Shireling? Others?

October 22 - Graewolf? Ninq/Boo/SB, Dee/Hubby/Shireling? Others?

So I'd like to suggest, first, that we have a "family" moot on one of the weekends. Ninq and Dee - can I ask the two of you to decide between you on the best weekend? It would be oriented towards making sure the kids have a good time, and will be set up for their preferences. So, with that in mind - Ninq, Dee - what would be the best day and time to go? Saturday or Sunday? First thing in the morning, or after lunch? I figure you guys know best. *G* Keep in mind that Indianapolis also has what I've heard is an excellent Children's Museum (with Dinotopia!). Let's see if we can decide by Saturday; I don't want tickets to run out. *S* Kunga, you're welcome to come that weekend, too, if you're okay with having kids around! And, Gaya? What about you? Are you interested in coming down, and bringing some of your family? If you are, try to let me know by Saturday - thanks.


Second, Graewolf, you're welcome to come the same weekend if you wish, or Oct. 28, when Abandonada and Rakshi will be down. They were planning on staying at a hotel because Rakshi was bringing her grandson - and I think they were coming down Columbus Day weekend. Maybe all of us can hook up somehow! [again, edited - had my weekends confused!]


Third... anybody else? Kam and Dawn - I hadn't heard from you, yet... I realize you may not be too interested since you saw the exhibit in London - and it may be the same one, although I'm not sure. But, Tig, what about you? Wanna come on down from Chicago? Finabair? Of course, you can also take a chance and leave it to the last minute - just contact me and let me know, because I'd love to have you stay, if I'm not busy with something else when you come. Hobbitgrrl? Am I missing anybody else within driving distance? (if so, sorry! my brain is slow lately. *G*)


So!!! Dee and Ninq - let's set a day and time, and let me know which nights you're staying, and Kunga and Graewolf, let me know your decisions. Squee!!!!!!! We're gonna see LOTR!!!

Hey - guess what I saw being put up the other day when I was running around for GenCon? *G*:

Rakshi and I have tickets for Saturday Oct. 28th. Rakshi, her grandson and I will stay at a Best Western the Friday and Saturday night. I have plane reservations to Detroit so it's official!

I hope we can get together for at least a meal that weekend. I'd like to see you again! You'll have had several busy weekends by the time Rak and I roll into town. But hey, how often does the LOTR exhibit--and all these happy LJ friends--come to your city?

The 28th? Sorry - I must have remembered it wrong! But, yes - I definitely want to get together. Hey, has she looked into The Children's Museum for her grandson?

Probably not yet. The grandson is 14 and is probably beyond that. Although Rakshi and I would enjoy it!

*meep!* Wait... does she have another grandson, too? I could have sworn there was a smaller one!

You're correct! She has another who's three or four. But he's not coming along.

Whew! Good... that was the one I was thinking of. When she said she was getting a hotel because her grandson was coming, I assumed she meant it was because he was young and would be a handful. *L*! Thanks.

It'll all depend on job stuff, and if I have money. Probably... errr... I don't know yet.

Not a problem - we'll keep it open. I'll buy tix for the others, and if you decide to come, you can just see if there are still tix available at that time (hopefully so!).

Chère, Columbus day is on the 10th, so the weekend is of the 8th... That's opening weekend, though, so I don't know - are there tickets left?

IIRC the 15th is when some other fun stuff are happening - costumes and things - I'm sleepy so am not very coherent, but you get the idea. Dee, what do you think?

*blomps Ros* Thanks so much for taking care of arrangements!

*smacks head* Darn, you're right! Sorry - I could swear I checked my calendar and it was the third weekend!

Okay... tell you what - you and Dee decide on a date - *L*!

Ninq dear, I think we can arrange to go whenever is the best time for you guys. Mr. D. says he wants to finalize the date soon so he can schedule his computer babysitting on-call schedule around it.

*blomps Ros too* yes, thank you, blessed Rosamunde! (a little nod to the Crickhollow scene - can you tell I'm re-listening to a certain book?) ;)

They're great fun to see for the first time... as you're driving down the street and not expecting them! *L*! They're right at an intersection.

Soooooo tempted! If I do it, it would have to be the holiday weekend because taking time off from work right now is iffy. But I'm looking at airfares, just to see if it tempts me even more (or scares me away).

Well with me it depends on two things: getting a ride down there (possibly with psyknife if she goes), and the weekend. Columbus day or the next weekend would probably work, but the weekend of the 22nd I will (hopefully!) be in Arizona attending the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology conference. So we shall see!

Ooooo! Arizona - cool! Would be fun if you and psyknife came down together, any weekend you want - *G*.

Oh, and my dinosaurs say hello to the dinosaur in your icon - *waves*.

I'll get in touch with Ninq ASAP - thanks for reminding us! And Shireling would probably love Dinotopia - she is a huge "Land Before Time" fan. :)

Love the Frodo poster (and that is the biggest poster-hanger-upper machine I have ever seen!!!) Three cheers for Frodo!

If you are interested, there is already a Moot planned for October 7-9:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/IndyMoot/

There is also a moot planning thread at the WME Forum

http://www.wmeforum.com/index.php?board=21;action=display;threadid=880

I'm not sure when I'll be going yet, but I'm looking forward to it!

Thank you!

The Yahoo one worked for me, but I got an error with the other one. What is "WME"?

Thanks!

WME = Welcome to Middle Earth
For some reason I thought you posted there. Obviously, I was wrong! Oh well!
