Let's talk about where we want to meet up...

I was thinking (and Amanda spurred the idea to start this now...not my thinking that is but, oh just read on and you will find out), now that it's getting close we should start talking about meeting up with each other (that is if you guys want to)...

Looking at the agenda there are a couple of good times that I see and they are...
Day 1
12 pm for lunch
around 7 pm before Opening Session

Day 2
before General Session before 9am
at the General Lunch

Those are what I see as great times to get a big or small group together for a "It's-great-to-finally-meet-you-in-person-hug", well we don't have to hug...it could be a high five or a special handshake too!

For those of you who haven't been to McCormick Place, it's pretty easy to navigate and we can just pick a spot maybe somewhere by the registration booths...there are always a good amount of tables close by the booths and that might be a good place to meet as well.

Anyhoo, let me know what you guys think...

I was thinking along the same lines for WAVE 3. I don't know how to start a Thread, but perhaps someone else does, and we could connect via WAVES.
I'm on the 8AM Tour for Monday morning, and saw that at least two others were too. Perhaps they can make themselves known to me with a private
e-mail. It will be my first time at Conference. I'm rooming with folks my Director has matched me with. My own local folks had already filled a room.
We will be at the Palmer House.

Hey Andrea, I like the lunch idea the first day! This is my first conference so I am stoked. I told my director how many days were left until conference and she laughed at me, "oh you newbies."

So I looked at both our schedules again, we have wedding registries together. I hope it helps because I have one, and wanted 10.

I think I was nuts for taking the 6:45 HO tour, I have to be up @ 3:15 Cal. time!
So if I fall asleep during general session, someone better wake me up, or if I look drunk someone better guide me to the right place! (Ha, Ha):D

To start a new thread go to the section you would like to post the new thread and at the top of the section is "New Thread" in a blue box. Click on that and you will see a box similar to the one that you put new posts to the threads in, hit submit and you are done!

You so won't fall asleep during General Session, there is so much clapping and laughing that it just isn't possible, but if you do we will make sure to wake you up. Also, you will have so much adrenaline that it might even be hard for you to sleep..

On the registry aspect, I too only have one registry...and would love to have more!

Well, I think we might have the A name's covered...there is Anne, Amanda and myself so far...can we get any B or C names to show up?:D :D :D

I am thinking lunch on the first day too, it's early in the conf so we don't have to wait too long to meet up!

L names are good! Well, you guys should know what I look like from my picture and I will try to have something on my body that states that I am a "Cheffer" and I think the rest of us should have something as well. I like the idea of a button or something of the like, maybe a "wave 2 cheffer" button with our chefsuccess name...cause I know that I can remember some names that go with the handles but I can't remember all of them and sometimes it's easier to recognize the handles.

Hey Andrea, Id love to meet up with you guys. I'm in wave 2 and on the 6:45 HO tour. Its my first conference so not sure where everything is. I'm sure Shari (my sis in law) and I could find you guys (Right Shari?). We're on the tour together.

I am a C name (Christina) although no one calls me that but thats what my tag will say. I agree on getting a button or something. It has to say Cheffer on it.

Glad you started the thread! :)

Yeah, some more cheffers on the bright & early tour! See you ladies there! Labels on our name tags or wearing buttons that would totally work! I can't wait to meet you guys, I am so looking forward to conference I am making myself sick!

Andrea we are getting other names than A, but I think A names are the best! HE HE He!:D

I love A names, my son is Austin and DH really liked Alison...but, when we got pregnant with the twins he decided that he didn't want to be too overrun with A's!

Hi all! I am in Wave 2 as well! I just got an email from HO saying that I get to go on a HO tour, as I am a newbie!!! I can't wait to get to meet some of my virtual cluster! Plus I thought another A name would be fun to add to the list... ~Alison

Need a "D"?

I'm in Wave 2, also. I'll be on the 8:00 am tour (although I'll be up early with all of you - I'm driving in from Milwaukee in the morning). I hope to meet up with you all. Lunch on the first day sounds good!

I will be there also, won't be with anyone I know too well, except director and she is not rooming with me, and of course she has other things to do, so don't know what I will be doing part of the time :( this kinda sucks, I don't really know my roommate, haven't talked, don't get to get to too many cluster meetings and the one I was hoping to room with this year, that I did with her and her m-i-l last year isn't going, ughh! To top it all off, I was hoping to have that extra day (Sunday) but roommate is leaving on Saturday, so I won't be able to stay either, and I have NEVER traveled alone, actually last year was my first plane trip :O and this will be my second (or would I say third since I flew twice last time to get there and to get back, lol).

Anyway, I was so much more psyched about it about 4 months ago when I found out my roommate from last year isn't going. Now I will feel like a lost child. lol. Live and learn I guess. I really need to get a recruit so I can drag them along with me ;)

Jennifer: You're not going to be alone! Just think about the freedom you are going to have to do whatever the heck you want!

Jennifer, I love travelling by myself and I'm sure that you will learn how great it is! Besides you aren't there by yourself, you are there with thousands of other people who have the same interests as you, just find someone in a PC tshirt and say Hi, you will have an instant friend! and if you put a Cheffer button on then we will know to say Hi to each other when we see others with the Cheffer pin on too!

There was this great bar that we went to last year and I can't seem to think of the name, maybe someone else will know. It wasn't too far from the Hilton and it had dueling piano's, and random people would come and play guitar and sing. We went on a Wednesday night and the place was filled by 10pm!! Anyway, they were having a craziest table contest and guess who won? Of course, the PC table...we got a bucket (like a 1 gallon bucket) of Long Island Ice Tea on the house...way fun!!!!

So, yeah...I am up for a drink!

Hey Girls,

I'm at the Hilton. I know on the Sat. night my director says she has a pizza party for us but as far as I know.. everything else is free and clear. Anyone else at the Hilton?

and Andrea, I'll go anywhere to have a drink.. apple martini (or any other kind) here I come! lol

Jennifer, you wont be alone, once you find one of us, we're sure you wont feel alone! We'll be so busy w/ our classes I'm sure by the end you will have at least a bunch of new friends (or so I'm told, its my first conference!)

I'll have to take a look in AC Moore and see if they have any kind of buttons that we can decorate. So the idea is put Cheffer on it w/ our screen names (if they fit).. right?

Hey, I'm an "A", too, and I'm in Wave 2. I'll be the overweight one with significantly graying hair and (WOOHOO) a red director's tag (compared to the pink one I wore at my 1st NC last year!)

Another "K" here. This is my first conference, and I am looking forward to going. I got the email about the home tour additions too, but I haven't gotten the confirmation yet as to which tour I will be on. I am all up for having a drink with the rest of you too. We are staying at the Hilton also.

I just don't get the email notices for the forums since I started to pay for the subscription. If I don't check the site several times a day, I'll miss it. Greg has been working on it, but I've just about given up on getting the email notices.
