Thanks Matt & Amber! :) Anyone arriving earler in the day...look for Linda, Shell, and/or myself in the ballroom! We intend to have it all finished EARLY in the afternoon so that we can nap, clean up, etc. (wishful thinking!) Basically everything will be assembled and just needing to be set out...so it should not be toooo bad! (LOL...wishful thinkin'!)

Seating in the ballroom will start at 6:00...and regular cash bar prices until the special two hour prices start at 7p.m.. :)

However...the bar does have HAPPY HOUR ON FRIDAYS! ;O)

GREAT NEWS! Susie hooked me up with someone who is going to be there with a Souvenier Photo Booth! :O) Photos will be printed on site, and only $5 per 5x7! We will have a special backdrop/scene for this!! :) I am really excited about this little feature...everyone can grab their new and old friends and take home a special momento! :)

{{{THANK YOU SUSIE!!!}}}

Actually, the smoking will be set up in the bar AND the outer hallways surrounding the ballroom, as well. :)

There are restrooms located in both areas as well. :)

LMAO!! At 8:00 I better still be standing!!! Sheesh...otherwise I would miss the whole party! LOL

Actually, I put myself down if no other volunteers offer! ;) Hopefully some will...or as you said earlier, maybe one of your friends? :)

Everyone who has not attended a party previously...PLEASE EMAIL FATBOTTOMGIRLIE with your name tag info

The cut off for the name tag info, birthdays, etc...is coming to a close...as these things take time to finalize! :O)

Jerry...your name will be on the cake...but the other things already finished up will have your user name! Sorry! :)

Hey Kat, in regards to the guy taking the pics, does he only do them to print out or can he possibly upload them for a small fee online. So many people don't have "recent" pics available, and this is one way to make sure that everyone has a recent pic for their profile if they show up to the party.

Also, I'm off work on Friday so I might in Chesterfield shopping that afternoon so let me know if you need any help setting up or getting anything else done earlier in the day.

Hey Kenny...no need to bring Jesus into it! I think he would approve, anyway! ;)

Theresa...this guy apparently has the whole shebang to do prom style photos...there will be a backdrop, personalized banner, and he even has folders to insert the photos which will have the POF logo! :) And if all goes will...he will return for future parties! So a whole lotta bang for our buck...or 5 bucks, to be precise! ;) I can ask him if there is any possibility of making one CD of all purchased photos, maybe? Then email them to the appropriate person?

But still bring your cameras...cause we will have the Aftermath thread as well! :)

If there are rules against discluding members, then why do I see all kinds of advertisements on POF for "Singles Party" or Singles Event". Does that mean married people should attend if they feel like being single that night? I am not trying to be a smart ass, but I cannot find that information that you stated earlier in the week. Please help.

Peaceofyourheart...

I don't have the time right now to search for all the forum threads covering the hosting/event rules...but there ARE rules that you cannot exclude any POF member, with the exception to age brackets. And "under 30's" party...or an "over 45's" for example.

I am not saying I do not agree with you...but I guess possibly they consider that "single" has a multitude of definitions, to different people. Some married but seperated people consider themselves such...for example.

But all in all...the majority of attendees are SINGLE. :)

here's a thought to the who's single and who isn't and who has a 'date', etc lol

when I have my guy with me, I say this is my boyfriend, _________ it's not that difficult to introduce one-self and their significant other! duh

Peaceofyourheart,

Below is the the paragraph stating POF events and parties must be open to ALL individuals (not just POF Members either) and a link to the page it is listed on.




Parties are open to ALL individuals, no targeting of any one specific group of people.
Where the above rule has some flexibility is only in age range. A suggested "Age Range" can be denoted if you wish in the appropriate provided box.


http://forums.plentyoffish.com/datingPosts1156438.aspx

Even though the title or subject line of a POF event or party may contain the word "single" that does not mean ONLY singles can attend. To host an event or party and exclude any one group you risk your account being suspended or worse, deleted.

Thanks for clarifying that for me, I greatly appreciate it. I will forward that information to the guys I met on this website that think they are on a "singles" website with the assumption that all the events will be for "singles". I wish we could take the
deception out of meeting new people. I hope the party is a huge success just like all the rest!

Jai...of course we can add Leslie! :)

Pieceofyourheart...I think this is getting stretched out of proportion! This is a GREAT place to meet singles! And I personally have not ever had an issue with massive quantities of married folk attending our parties! Of course there are the couples who have MET AS A RESULT OF POF. Why would we disclude them?? And members are encouraged to bring along friends and adult family members, some of who may not be single. But the way *I* view it, is that it is networking! What if Johnny brings his married sister, Sally...and Sally, in meeting and talking with Fred...thinks Fred and her single friend Lisa would be a perfect match?! ;) Then a connection is made through networking! ;)

And again...I think that for the MAJORITY...if someone is married, they are very upfront about it...at the parties and here on the site. Listing it in their profile or telling people upfront. It is not like we attract a non-single group! Out of 600 attendees, I bet there are less than 10, who are "unavailable!"

I just feel like this is being made into an issue, when it is a non-issue. :) And aside from that...when talking with someone...even though it IS a "singles event"...nothing wrong with asking, "So...you are single?" :)

UPDATED Door Greeter Schedule

6:00 - 7:00 Cammie & Kat (Rosa cannot make it, most likely)

7:00 - 8:00 Beca & Bill

8:00 - 9:00 BallwinLady & Sandy
(BLs friend(s) can assist so that these two are able to nab up some food!)

9:00 - 10:00 OPEN if needed, please volunteer!!

This party will also have a Strat bouncer at the ballroom door, checkin IDs and stamping hands or putting bracelets on. EVERYONE BRING IDs TO BE SAFE!! Some bars in the area are now REQUIRED to check ALL IDs regardless of age appearance, by law. :)

PLEASE EMAIL SHELLIE IF YOU HAVE BEEN TO A PREVIOUS PARTY AND YOUR REAL NAME WAS NOT ON YOUR TAG...IF YOU ARE A NEWBIE TO THE PARTIES...OR IF YOU HAVE A GUEST YOU WOULD LIKE A NAMETAG FOR!!

There will be BLANK nametags, but it is always nice for Shellie to be able to update her database which she works so hard on!!
Thanks, Shelle-Belle!! ;)

Didnt Amber say something about needing a roomie?? Wait...that won't work...Amber, you are allowed in the parties, but not the hotel...sorry! (applies to Farrah, as well, so don't feel singled out...their rules, not mine!)

I don't think many room up unless it fills up...cause the rooms are so cheap!

Anyone wanting to share the expense of a room, contact Matt!!!

Unless they've kept photo id's how would they know who is and isn't allowed in the hotel. I stayed again at the last party, whoops and they did not know about it.

Please excuse the posts made regarding Linda not attending/co-hosting....they were made in error! (And were deleted, accordingly!) :O)

Amber...I can't answer that...all I know is, when I was at the Strat last week, the front desk Mngr mentioned it to me and referenced you by name. She said that you were allowed in the bar and parties, but not as a hotel guest. (And the other gal, as well)

If you choose to ignore that...it is up to you. But if you do get a room by yourself or with someone else, and they discover such...they have every right to make you leave without a refund. Just a warning, ok? I would like for this to be pleasant for all! :)

Edit to add to Laura! Long time, no see! Apparently, bars in the area are having to card, regardless of age! LOL I know at Gregg's Birthday Party at That One Place, people were refused entrance who were obviously of age...and all the begging and pleading did no good! I have never been carded at the Strat...whassup with THAT??....lol...but better to be safe, than sorry! I know I have gotten people into the Strat who were old enough, but had no ID...so I foresee no problems!
