October 4, 2009
This coming weekend’s schedule is not much different from other CJDPT overniters- the plan we have used seems to work- so we’re sticking with it.
If you are a first-timer, we suggest you bring all your “traders.” You will be amazed at the wonderful pins for trade and you’ll be wishing you had all brought all your pins! We ask that you bring munchies or healthy snacks to share and some bottled drinks for the coolers. Bring money for lunch and dinner- we insist you take a break to eat. There are many local places that deliver and there is a Ruby Tuesdays right across the street with a take-out window (how convenient.) If you would like to take a break from trading on Saturday evening, bring a new wrapped Disney item ($15 to $20) that would make a great grab bag gift and join in the fun when we play our “Let’s Make a Steal” gift swap game. It continues to be lots of fun! Finally, bring your sense of humor and love of Disney. We are looking forward to hosting another great weekend of pin trading, friendship and fun!
