    We're drawing ever closer to NC. What do you say? Thursday night, 9 p.m., at the Hilton lounge? I'm open to other suggestions.

    I'll be there... That is where I am staying. I would love to meet with everyone and get some new, fresh ideas to help me ramp up my biz so I can leave my full time job.

    I'm at the Hilton as well.
    My cluster usually does dinner that night, but I don't see any reason why I wouldn't be able to be there for part of it to meet everyone!!

    I wouldn't mind meeting up with everyone for a bit (my cluster is having a dinner that night AND I'll be with my husband and daughter, so I'd have to ditch them first) if its an open invitation - I'm pretty new here so I don't really "know" anyone yet. :blushing:

    I'm across the street. I'll be there.

    Anyone want to have another one at the Sheraton?
    Somebody might share a cab to get there.

    Since it seems that so many of us are either in or near the Hilton, why don't we stay with 9 p.m. at the Hilton Lounge?

    Those staying at the Sheraton could share a cab or 2. That would cut down on the cost. Or, they can gather at the lounge there and have their own.

    The MNG is an open invitation. Anyone's welcome.

    Aaaahhhheeemmmmm ... drag her over with you and COME ON!!!!!!!! I'll try to be there for a bit. I have a new consultant coming with me as well but I'll try to pop in. For anyone wondering about the MNG. COME ... I have been SO blessed by the encouragements and caring from so many of you that I only briefly met in person last year. It's so cool to put faces with "names" here! I think we also have a cluster supper that night but we should be back.

    If you've never been to a MNG, let me explain. It's really relaxed. You don't have to be there on time. It goes on for quite a while, but you don't have to stay late. It's just a chance to, as Diane said, put faces with names. It's also a good way to give a real-life hug to those you've been giving online hugs to.

    I'm at the Hilton and I plan on being at the MnG. I came last year and, as said already, it was a great way to put the faces with the names.

    Thanks, Rae!

    I'm at the Sheraton. Thursday night I'll be with my family- but the boys have a 8:30-9pm bedtime...so I might be able to duck out if someone is going over for an hour?

    Or if anyone is planning on just meeting at the Sheraton?

    I'll keep an eye out for a phone list.

    Our Exec has invited us for pizza in her room on Thursday night, and it's at the Sheraton. It'll probably go well past 9...

    Maybe we'll run into one another elsewhere. I'm short with flippy red hair. I'll be sporting a classic cream-colored CS button, and you'll probably hear me before you see me. I have a fairly loud and frequent laugh.

    Rae - are you talking about the Hilton Chicago or the Palmer House Hilton? I'm assuming the first.

    Yep, Hilton Chicago. The Palmer House Hilton isn't one of the conference hotels this year.

    Really?! Wow! Stayed there 2 years in a row. I didn't do reservations so I didn't even look this year.

    I'm just glad I don't have to travel for banquet this year and also have roommates excited to be there.

    I'm at the Sheraton, too, Janet.


    Unfortunately, I think I read somewhere that our Banquet is at the Hilton.

    That made me laugh. The first time I stay at the Sheraton, and it will be the first year I've gone when our banquet wasn't there!:rolleyes:

    Yep - just went and checked again. We're at the Hilton. Oh, the irony! It was the one bright spot about being at the Sheraton - that we wouldn't have to travel for our banquet.:rolleyes:

    Oh well, at least it sounds like many of us will be at the Sheraton!

    I'm pretty loud, but I'm short. Maybe you simply overlooked me. LOL! Then again, year before last everyone recognized me as the devil.



    I volunteered in the guest speaker's workshop and was cast as the devil on a woman's shoulder when she decided to do something new. For the rest of NC people kept stopping me (elevators were particularly popular spots) and saying, "Hey! You're the devil!" My director loved it. :D
