Thank you for all the wonderful work!

I've had the same thoughts. If memory serves me correctly while flights were cancelled during the big freeze in January ones to the US went ahead so here is hoping we won't be affected!!

Hi all,
I've updated the attendee list on the first page--check for accuracy. Also, this is the latest for meetups:
I've done a "close-to-final" update tonight on names and events; most members have shown a desire to meet at the Bellagio buffet on Thursday night at 7:00--Maarten will be there with nametags before then--there are bars at the Bellagio (the Caramel, for example) to join others for a drink(s) later or at Caesar's (the Seahorse seems to be the quietest); Does 10:00 seem a good time?

For Friday and/or Saturday, I would suggest people meet between 5-5:30 at the Bellagio buffet in order to pick up your nametag from Maarten (if you haven't met him yet),and eat there or at Caesar's buffet, Cheesecake Factory, Max Brenner's (latter 2 in Forum Shops) or wherever your tummy and wallet lead you. After the show drinks can be at the Seahorse. I'll update if I receive any suggestions, which I gratefully solicit :D


PS: If you need to get in touch with me once you're in Vegas, pm me and I'll give you my cell #

We arrived back from Australia via Singapore in snow this morning. Our flight was a bit late but otherwise everything was normal. The biggest challenge in bad weather - for us anyway - is getting to & from the airport.

Hi All

I have been so looking forward to coming to Vegas but I had a minor disaster yesterday...... I fell and I have broken bones in my wrist , hand and thumb and I am now in a plastercast and sling (last Xmas I broke my ankle !!!). Not sure how I will cope but hopefully this will not stop me from coming or enjoying the fun.

My only regret is I wont be able to join in the applause during the concerts.

Oh Carole. You are invincible!

Not to worry. Your radiant smile will be felt on stage. And appreciative yelps from the audience are permitted in the "wild west", no hands required.

Looking forward to seeing you again.

Hi Carole,

When I went to Sweden & Denmark to see Leonard, on that first morning in Stockholm, I fell on my way out of the bathtub & dislocated & broke my finger; I spent the whole morning in a Swedish hospital (it was rather traumatic, as I'm sure that fall was for you, as well!!); & I still went to the Stockholm concert that very night, plus Gothenburg 4 days later, & Odense 2 days after that. I couldn't applaud properly, but one can find ways to improvise (I stomped my feet a few times, among other things) & you still have your vocal chords, & you can still emanate love from your heart! It sounds like you have more broken bones than I did, & I hope you are not in alot of pain, but I'm guessing you can still make it to Las Vegas, & I encourage you to not let the broken bones prevent you from experiencing what is sure to be an AMAZING, TRNASCENDENT, ONCE-IN-A-MILLION-LIFETIMES experience!!

Hope your hand heals fast & hope to meet you in Las Vegas!!

Carole,

I am so sorry about your misfortune. I had to laugh though, that with all the broken bones, your only regret was that you wouldn't be able to applaud. But, as Arlene and holydove have said, you will find another way to show your enthusiasm and appreciation and we will be right behind you. Applause is not the only way to acknowledge our love for what is happening onstage :D

Warmest regards,
Mary

If I am reading this post accurately, there is no group meet-up plan for Friday dinner on December 10.

Anyone that is interested in joining me, I've decided to go to the Caesars Buffet on Friday around 5:30 pm.
I will have had a full day recovering from "the night before" and a day of activities.
I am staying at Caesars. So I would like to keep it simple for dinner and then "mosey on over" to the concert.
