CrAzY 8's PaRtY @ Stratford Bar Ballroom {St. Louis & Surrounding} 08*08*08 6:30p.m. to 1:30a.m.Page 5 of 30    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30)
Well, Bay...I am sure the "beach" you lay on, will appreciate that you "lyck!"

OK...trying to go back and see who all volunteered for being a door greeter? I know Miss Cammie was one...Amber another....but we need at least four others, preferably more. ;o) Any takers? I would REALLY like to give the co-hostesses a break from such cause they work so hard prior to the party...and are super minglers, anyway! ;)

The ballroom looked phenomenal the last time I checked on the status of it! The dance floor is HUGE now...and the bar is so long that we will have no concerns with it getting congested.

Is that Mr. Matt? Long time, no see, Matt! :)

Linda...welcomes! :)

I noticed we have someone signed on from...Montanna? That will be a record for longest travel distance for a St. Louis POF party! LOL

Shell and I went to the Strat after the Royal Dump last night...ballroom is nearly all finished and looking really spiffy! It was nice and cool with the new AC system, too! :) The co-hostesses and I are really excited about spiffying it up all and making this a good visual as well!

Reminder...if you plan to stay the evening...and join in on the Sand Volleyball and Barbecue...it is suggested that you reserve your room, early! A credit card is not required for reservations, so even if you end up not attending or staying, there is no risk! And it guarantees you the $35 a night room rate!

Hey Katgirl, you think it would be okay for me to wait until this coming friday to make our reservations especially if we plan on staying over for the BBQ the next day, or should I go ahead and reserve ahead of time? Please text me if you think I should go ahead and reserve, thanks!

Matt...spit happens...but it is about the experience and what you learn from it, and not just about the longetivity or it being "forever." As Miss Susie and the other girls would say...you can say, too! "NEXT!" ;O)

Becca...AWESOME! Look forward to seeing you!!

BallwinLady...awesome...not sure which I am most excited about, the Tequila Boom or your volunteering! LOL

The volunteer hours are gonna be whole hours, 6-7, 7-8, 8-9, and then at 9 we just kind of keep an eye on the door for newbies. Will post the final schedule...but I think the shift I need is 8-9 covered. THANK YOU for volunteering! It is actually a superb way of meeting people! :)

I for one, encourage people to bring their friends and adult family...even if not "single." I know some people think this sucks since it is a "singles event" but you never know...that married girl may have a hottie, single girlfriend who she thinks is just perfect for you! ;) My brother has some mandatory vacay time...and I was trying to sweet talk him into taking it here for the party...but he is in California...and only has like 3 days he has to use.

Awesome Matt! Now I can check off one thing of my "To Do" list for the day! ;)

Hey peeps...we might have some out of towners come for this party, too! A few Ohians, and some in other Missouri parts have shown some interest in such...would be so cool to mix up areas in one lively par-tay! Anyway...if they pop in to the thread, show them what us "Show Me" peeps are made of! :)

It's partly a time to honor all the August birthdays! :) We have a cake(s) coming with all the names of peeps celebrating August birthdays...there will be other special little "surprises" as well....but mostly, it is just another PAR-TAY!

Susie...we have not yet decided if we will start on things Thu night, or if we will just get there EARLY on Fri. But will announce it for sure, as I find out! I know it is really rough to have to rush rush things...then get ready fast, without some veg time...so I will probably head out in the morning. I know most will be working on Fri...so if you are taking off, or don't work on Fridays, let me know! :) Thanks for mentioning it, Susie!

Jai! Girl...I already replied to your email...so ya knows that I am thrilled your trip got postponed! (Sorry...Chicagos loss...our gain!) I did not plan on making a birthday spankin line...lol...but who you allow those spankin priviledges is your business! ;) Old?! Puh-lease! Girl...you could give a 20-something some competition! ;)

well Kat, I did send you a text today after I reserved my room for the 8th and 9th; the lady at front desk told me to contact whoever in charge of party for the bbq, so Jerry and I will be there for Saturday festivities as well, can someone please tone down the sun/heat wave by then please!

ballwinlady, glad you're gonna make it!

My text packaged ended today, Denise...thanks for reminding me to renew! LOL

You do not have to do anything with the Strat regarding the BBQ. We are using the hotel reservations as a guideline for how many to expect, because I honestly cannot see too many people deciding to come to the party...leaving late that night...then coming back for the BBQ...unless, of course, they live close by! But as I said...just a guideline! ;) And for those who cannot make the party, but want to make the BBQ...then just leave a post or email me...am keeping basic tabs on such! :)

Bjade...go to message number one of this thread, and click on the "sign me up" button! :) While signing up is not mandatory, it does help Shell with making the nametags, as well as giving the venue an idea of how many people to expect.

Neysha! Get some fellow Cincinnatian's to go and rideshare, girl! ;) I know a few from when I lived there, who might consider it! LOL But they are not on the site, as far as I know!

I am possibly working on getting a single guy there that is going to be home from the Navy on Leave. But I'm warning all, he'll have someone to take care of at the end of the night .... haha.

Antonio...we are an equal donor opportunity party! ;) However, we will not be passing a jar at this party, since the Strat is now providing the music and our wonderful and generous DJ Tony will be able to fully enjoy the festivities, instead! :)

Jeannie...glad to see you sign up, girlfriend! A party would not seem like a party without you and your paddles, poles, and dance moves! ;)

Yeah, Kenny! Somehow I knew you would end up attending, anyway! ;) I think you just enjoy taunting everyone with the yes, no, maybe's! Bay, too! ;)

For those of you who don't know it...this party marks the "anniversary" of when the parties really took force in our area! Patrick (Where is he now?!) hosted a smaller get together at McGurks...then moved on to using the Strat, which I somehow became co-host of. It was this party that so many friendships were formed, GNO's were started (Party on the Bush, Pofsters!), and the bar was set for St. Louis being a kick ass place for Fishies! :)

Very little drama has occurred at the parties...in spite of mixing and matching so many people in one large room! LOL Relationships (both the friendship and romantic sort!) have formed, lasted, ended...all as a result of the parties...but one thing is guaranteed...a GREAT TIME IS HAD! :)

I am looking forward to seeing everyone...whether a "newb" or a "seasoned fishie!" Let's strive for a wonderful evening for all! :) Here are a few things you can do to help contribute to the party success:

Browse the profiles and send out a couple email invites each day...to both genders! :) (Try a "Hi...saw your profile and I thought you might be a great addition to the St. Louis parties! Include a link to this forum!)

List the link and/or info on your MySpace, Facebook, Yahoo IM, etc.!

Invite your non POF friends...but yes, please encourage them to join POF!

And please...please! Be generous with your servers! :) The reason that we are always welcome back to the Strat, is because our Servers <3 Us! :) The Strat doles out a lot of generousity...allowing us to utilize the ballroom with no rental, providing free or hugely discounted drinks times, providing FREE grub, and more! :)
