    We have Shriner's Hospital at 10:30am for one hour. All the other hospitals would not allow as many people as Shriner's and with the book signing the time was a problem too. So we are just doing the one hospital.

    I think we will do two rotating groups, each group will go in for a half an hour each. That way everyone that wants to go to the hospital will get a chance to.

    We will need everyone for the Borders deal. We will have all the details worked out on Sunday then I will post more info and schedules after that planning meeting. So Be There!! We need all of you to help!!!

    Okay gang I showed up at 5 15 at the Crown (SP) hotel in Bridgton TGIF and when I asked they said no one was there, So I waited till 5 30 and asked again. I ended up going to the wrong one.(In the process getting lost twice) Sorry. By time I drove back home and realized I went to the wrong one it was too late. Cause it is a 45 minute trip each way plus stop for fuel. BY then it was a few minutes before 7 and I figured you all were gone, since it was to only be a few hours.

    I thought it was brentwood but printed out Bridgeton.
    Can someone let me know what I missed?

    Okay, so I have been put in charge of Trivia for the Regional Meeting Picnic. But, I am not a trivia buff. So, I am asking all of you out there for help! Please!!!!!!

    If everyone could just send me via PM ( so we don't have the answers readily here for everyone to read) at least one question and if possible three, that would be great! Category ideas would be appreciated too. We can post the category ideas here though, just without questions and answers.


    I was thinking- three levels -easy, medium and hard and I definitely will include EU. Please, Please, Please be absolutely positive that you have the correct answer to your question and I don't want to be in the middle of a debate.

    Thanks!!!!!!!! :D

    Leash, snag the trivia pursuit game from Dajuan...that should give you some good questions..and when we played it, some of the questions were really easiy..while others were harder. If you want EU questions, I am sure there are a number of us that can help you with those.

    Good call Laura!

    We are up to 25 registrated attendants. Registrated, meaning paid. I know some are still planning on coming but until I get the money in some form I have not listed you on the sheet!! :D

    Truck: check. Course, if I drive the truck that day it'll cut down on the number of people I can transport...unless they lay really flat in the bed.:)

    Tack and I can pack our cooler, and anything else if needed--just tell us what to bring. We also have SW Trivial Pursuit DVD edition, if anyone's interested. Not sure if anyone else from Central MO is attending, but we'll probably be leaving Columbia at or around 1 pm Friday if anyone wants to caravan!

    I can't wait! Gawd, I have so much **** to do before then...
