    ArticAngel,

    I may need your assistance. I have someone lined up to bring the Memphis WL merch from Nashville. As of this time I am unsure if we are actually going to be able to meet up on Friday. If things don't work as planned, would you be willing to bring the wishlist stuff from NashVegas to Memphis?

    Can do!
    We'll work out the details. :)


    Cool, I sent you a facebook message too about this too.
  • Thanks ArcticAngel! We'll work something out & meet up Friday afternoon or early evening. My original transporter has to go back to SW MO before the Memphis show & it would be a couple of hours out of his way. Thank you so much.

    Since there is the no participation to win law in TN, along with the "Unraffle" gifts that all off the attendees will receive 1 donation (raffle) ticket given free to everyone. More tickets can be purchased, like usual, as donations for the Camp. These tickets will be used to hand out "Thank You" gifts randomly by chosen ticket (raffle). I hope this makes since!

    Its after midnight.....so, 7 daze......1 week!

  • Here's a Saturday morning bump!

    Everybody get their blue suede shoes packed & brush up on the Southern slang. Make sure you get your picture taken with the Elvis statue after going down with a "Diver"! Memphis here we come!

    I wish I was going but I'm just helping out a tiny bit with this party. I would come but I'm flying home to surprise my dad for father's day. If I was going to any shows/pre-parties this would be the one. :D

    Ok so you know I enjoy a cold Stella now and then. :) Have we met and where? Sorry I can't figure out who you are threw your board name. Help me out.

    Sounds good. Melissa and I will be staying at the group rate hotel in Nashville and probably be hitting the road to Memphis right around checkout time. I could even get the Wishlist stuff after the concert if that works best. Patrick sent me a Facebook message with your phone number, so I'll stalk you down in Nashville!!

    It would be cool if the official pre-party threads were stickied to keep them on the front page. It's not like you have 4-5 threads going about the same thing. I like to read the updates on the date is coming up fast, can't believe it's only a week away!
  • I know it is a bit tough to keep up with all of the updates since there's so much bumping going on to keep this off of the 3rd or 4th page. I don't feel that we need 4 or 5 threads about the Memphis pre party.....or to chat in other threads about it. I just hope all of the folks coming in to Memphis & are attending the party are being able to keep up with the updates......since we are only 7 days away from the event. A sticky would be a good idea.....I'll pm Kat or Sea on Monday & see if they can help us out!

    It's Daniel (DANSILVA3) and we roadtripped together in 06 from Chicago - Detroit then back to Chicago :) I never changed the default board name so I guess that doesn't help in remembering who I am.

  • Daniel, either I'll call you or you call me on monday, okay? I should have a general inventory of what donations we have & possibly I could figure out my 3 way calling & get you & Mindi. We could conference call. Are you & the wifey planning on hitting Memphis Friday night?

    Thanks for the bump Jim! I can't til we bump into each other in Memphis! It will be great to see ya again! 3 yrs has been way too long!

    Sunday morning bump.
  • Cosmic SlopCosmic Slop Posts: 107
    Just woke up bump
  • Good morning prepartiers! There's really nothing new to update y'all with this morning. I did receive an email yesterday from Sheri Bancroft, camp co-director, letting me know that there were over 140,000 homes w/o power in Memphis. This happened Friday afternoon. She also said that the last time this happened that the city was w/o for a week. Let's hope the electricity is on by next weekend!!!!

    I'm in the process of trying to figure out which items are going to be auction items & which are going to be for the "Thank You" drawing. Our entertainment will start around 4pm & are playing us 2 or 3 songs. The band is one of last year's camper band. I'm going to see if I can't find out what they are calling themselves now. I was told that they'd changed the band's name since last year. As soon as the ladies have completed their set; the drawing & auction will begin. I would like to have this done by 5. This way we can all go get out tickets for the show.

    Also, I have several folks promising donations. If anyone has decided what they are donating please pm me with your decision. This would a great help in putting together my inventory.

    Thanks to everyone of y'all! Y'all are why this party is going to be a success & be very profittable for The Delta Girls Rock Camp!

    See y'all in 6 days!!

    I just remembered last night that I have an extra Ed lighter from his last tour too. I think I am going to donate that too. :mrgreen:

    I know!... seems like it's going to be a solid turn out...

  • Wow Mindi! I'm thinking your items are sounding like some great autions items!!!!

    I hope this solid turn out is ready to spend some money for a very worthy cause. The young ladies that we are helping are from the "Home of Rock & Roll". They are the future of Memphis' rich musical heritage.

    Congrats Eric on Albany's great success! I just hope the rest of the parties on this tour are as successful! Go Wishlist Team!!!

    Exactly. :) I saw so many people get shwasty in LA and literally pass out during the show. One of them was next to me. It was my roommate. She's not invited to Tennessee. :lol::lol:

    Also! I have at least 6 PJ bootlegs to donate to the unraffle: '98, '00, and '06 it looks like.

    After talking to Melissa on the phone today I'm even more excited!!! She made it seem like Memphis is quite the city to drink in after the show. :shock: Don't forget to pack your liver!

  • There are SO many choices! I like Dave's, Silky's, The Rum Boogie, & BB Kings. Dave's & Silky's have huge outdoor areas. BB's always has some great live music. The Rum Boogie is always fun..... but, small.
