Me too and hoping to see my new STD. :twisted:

I am going with all the joy and excitement of a four year old on Christmas morning, but definitely not looking forward to any STD's. Is there something I am missing about the retreat I should know about?


Good, I'm glad I'm not the only one with their mind in the gutter .. This was the first thing I thought of too! :twisted:

Mike K ~ Remember the area Chamber of Commerce filming last year? The lady said she'd work on waiving the park fees for us? ...Any chance of contacting her and let her/them know we're coming?

Just a thought! ...though the fees are certainly reasonable!

The people from the chamber of commerce showed up on Sunday, filmed us for a while, Interviewed you. Said they might put something on their web site. Said to call them this year to let them know when we were coming.
And don't worry I had forgot also.

I searched the Duneland Chamber of Commerce website and YouTube and didn't find the interview (although I did find a bystander video of last year's retreat, below). Did anyone get her business card?

Good plan. I'd start with E.D. Weimer. I wouldn't even mention the free admission at first. Just tell her that someone from some bureau asked to be informed of this year's retreat, that we can't remember who or what agency, and wondered if it might have been a member of her staff. If you're lucky enough to get in touch with the actual person, then I'd remind her of the offer of free admission.
