You invited the press? Without telling your guests until the last minute? When some have already made their travel plans at a significant expense?

looking_glass media is always last minute, and you don't have to talk if you don't wish, or even be on camera if you don't wish, not a problem at all.

I just spoke to Fodors and there will be a Fodors person to do the camera/interviews for the event.

travelbuff, you missed cruiseluv and tdk320n from upthread (Aug 5 and 6, respectively). Also, can you turn off the all-caps please? It's difficult to read so much text like that!

Lookin_Glass, are you planning on joining? (Or was your comment more of a general statement - and IMO a good one at that, since having media has never been part of GTGs in the past.)

Hello,

Travelbuff and ggreen, thanks so much. It now appears I will not be able to attend, what a bummer. Wishing all of you a great time. Maybe I'll see you in the news!

Ah, cruiseluv, that's too bad! Hopefully this will go off so well we can do it annually - like what they do in Boston.

travelbuff and ggreen: You two are just great to do this.

Unfortunately, I am squeezed by an early morning MUST do, and then I have to get back in early evening. So, the two hour train ride each way will not be possible.

Since I've never been to a REAL GTG, I really hope you do this each year, so I can really plan ahead.

Best wishes to everyone, and I hope someone takes photos.

SusieQQ and taconictraveler, you will be missed! Looking forward to meeting you at next year's gathering. (How's that for positive thinking!)

I'm sure there will be many cameras around. Maybe it will be a race to see who gets them online the fastest!

looks like a fun group

i fail to see why looking glass tried to put such a damper on the GTG... i'm probably in trouble for saying this, but someone has to..

these gtg's are not just thrown together, they take a lot of work..

THANKS LADIES!!!

I know we are going to have a great time tomorrow. gggreen and I have a cute surprise for you and several people from Fodors will be there, as well as a guest surprise.

So I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow and then looking forward to your trip reports on the "event".

Thanks gang for being so supportive we are going to have a BALL.
