UPDATE

Please notice that there are some additions to the original posts in Message 1. The updates are as follows:

*** Wear a mask to keep with the Mardi Gras theme if you would like! This is NOT mandatory, but I do know of numerous people who have asked and mentioned this and it sounds like a GREAT idea!!! You can find a mask for the party at any party store or costume store, ie.....Party Central, Party City, or even Ebay! Go with basic or go elaborate........it is all up to YOU!!!!

***Red Roof Inn on Advantage Place, located off of Cedar Bluff is giving ya'll a GREAT deal of $39.99 + tax, per night for staying with them!!!! They have a block section for POF and the number of rooms are limited so make your reservations early and mention that you are with POF to get the fabulous price!!!!!

This party looks like it is going to be a great one and we are there to CELEBRATE, so dress up, dress casual........wear your mask and be ready to PARTY!!!!

The numbers are picking up quickly and so far, we have 44 signed up with 25 gentlemen and 19 ladies! WOW!!!!

Hugs to all,
LB72

This sounds like a great idea for a party. And the masks and Mardi Gras colors will be festive and fun. I am really looking forward to making some new friends. I have also heard that Paul's Oasis is a great meeting place.

See you all in 3 weeks.

SWEET!!! LB72 for getting that discount on a ROOM, if live to far away to go home that night.

Just no PIZZA or FOOD delivery on EARLY morning SUNDAY.

So should I take it, NO NAME TAGS if got mask on?

Now JUST need a shuttle BUS or BIG LIMO to fit all in from Hotel to PAUL'S.

Hi all I missed the last one due to the snow. I am looking forward to getting to come to this one. And sounds to me like the Mardi Gras theme will be a hoot. I like the idea of the masks, it keeps everyone guessing who you are..lol..

UPDATE

WOW!!!! You all never cease to truly amaze me!! These numbers are great with 81 people signed up so far! This breaks down into 48 gentlemen and 33 ladies and ages are ranging from 21 to 66! Don't let the numbers worry you as only more people are bound to sign up between now and the event, and some aren't even signing up, but showing up. AND.......some are bringing a friend or 2 with them.

I have announced my greeters in the main post and they are as follows:

***Red Roof Inn is offering block rooms at $39.99 + tax for Saturday night. Make your reservations and mention that you are with POF to get this special rate!

Looks like YOU are going to make this event a GREAT one, so thank you! Remember, this is YOUR event and only YOU can make it a success!

Thanks for ROOM Rates, Greeters and now a web info page to get Neat stuff for a MASK,
