The Fest is upon us

The Texas RottFest is coming up in a few weeks, and I need to know who is for sure showing up. Those that are planning to bunk at the house, and those that are showing up but staying in a hotel need to sound off. I also need to ask that if you are able, to toss a few coins in the grocery kitty when you arrive. We’ll try to have plenty of noshes on hand of course, but it gets expensive to foot the food bill for everyone, so a bit of help would be appreciated. OR…if you want to bring stuff yourselves, that’s perfectly ok to. We’ll make room for any last minute show ups, so don’t think you can’t change your mind if circumstances allow. Woot!!

    Sent a message to Mike already, but double confirming that my tickets are bought and I am counting down the days! I also mentioned that if you could spare a corner for me to lay out my carcass in thatd be most appreciated. Looking forward to meeting all of you in June!

    I don’t think there will be a problem finding you a spot. We have two air mattresses and a sofa. Can’t guarantee you won’t have a couple of Schnauzers bunking with you though. They tend to think it’s their job to make sure nobody sleeps alone in this house. :em05:

    wish I could be there…..someone lost the memo about me going part time last year and they’re really stacking it on lately.

    Hell, I’ll buy y’all a round anyways…..will hit the tip jar in a day or two, are you able to pick up loose change from the tip jar Lady M??? Look for it tomorrow morning if you can.

    I will only be there in spirit, I will probably drink 1or15 here at home that weekend, so I can pretend to pass-out at your casa

    I sent a message to Mike when he posted in January, but did not see a reply (over-zealous spam filter?). I am still planning to come to meet the Rotties! I will make lodging arrangements offsite, so would appreciate suggestions on closest motels. I can contribute to the food and beverage needs of the group when I arrive.

    I appreciate the offer Jaybear, I most certainly do, but put that away and save it for when you actually walk through the door…..which damn well better be next year at least. :em01:

    Well it will be a rental this year. The crunchmobile with the beautiful nose art and top turret that you remember has alas passed onto the last parking spot. But whether by foot, horseback, or even a damn prius, we will be there. (OK, maybe not a prius. Intelligence and standards and all, but you get the point.)

    Definitely recommend this Days Inn. I stayed there both times. With AAA it’s less than $50 a night. :em01:

    I have a free plane ticket I have to use by October (it pays to volunteer to be bumped when they are desperate) – gee, how will I use it?

    Wish i could be there. I’m currently unemployed. so im watching pennys right now. Anyhoo, if i stepped foot in Texas, I probably not go back to the Buckeye state. When ever anyone asks my wife, where would your husband go if he had the chance, she knows the answer is Texas.

    Just for grins, here is the link to Mike’s January post and comment thread on the plans for the RottFest, as there is much useful info in it as well.

    Oh ya’ll, need to know who is flying and needs a lift from the airport, and just who is planning to show up period. I have 13 on the list so far. Come one now. Surely some of you can throw in together and get here. :em01:

    Bones growls and barks:

    I would sincerely love to be there, but I and my better half are trying to get a farm up and running here and I don’t think that there is as much time left as I need. Ya’ll have fun and I will tip one back for ya’ll here in SC.

    I’ve already said I’ll take the same “suite” as last time. Unless some other member of the Empire has a spare bed off site. No, I’ll take the armory. I felt comforted surrounded by all that metal. And Crunch, click my “recently posted” link. You might be amused.
