I will get the pictures up either tonight or tomorrow.

I haven't been feeling good since I ate the chicken last night, not sure why not but oh well. I think this was a great party and the decorations looked spectacular.

Kat, Linda, Shellie thank you again for a great party!! I liked the picture booth and I got a few pics from it, one of me and my roommate Brandon and then also a group one that was taken at the end of the night.

The ballroom looks specatacular as well. I had fun meeting new people last night and seeing everyone else as well. I will write more later, gotta go lay back down now.

Everyone did a fantastic job. I was hesitant walking in by myself but that didn't last long. This is a very nice group of people and I had a blast.

I must say, I think I enjoyed this party the most so far! So many new people to meet and getting to see old friends once again.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who came out and made this event the success it was!

The next morning many of us sat around for breakfast/lunch and got to know each other while enjoying some great BBQ (the ribs were to die for) We even started throwing ideas around for the October party.

Speaking of October party - Arrangements will be made to improve the selection of music. I need any and everyone who would like specific songs played (this means you Salsa Boy) to email me their selections and I shall do my best to get a list compiled of favorite and requested music to be played during the nights festivities. Remember, if you don't ask for it you can't complain when you don't hear it!

A POF Party Junkie's work is never done!

The Strat is still in the process of installing lighting. If we had been able to get better lighting for atmosphere we would have done so. They had expected to have more, if not all of it installed by this party but that simply didn't work out. The ballroom is still a work in progress since the remodel and as we can improve things we will.

Believe it or not, we don't usually go into the ballroom at the last minute making decisions! lol The hosts have usually discussed things between themselves and then gone over it again with the General Manager and there is usually a reason specific choices were made. Don't get me wrong, we don't always make the best choices, but sometimes an odd choice is made because we need to see how it works before trying something else. I was just as surprised as everyone else when the lights went off. We hosts knew why those bright ass lights were on!

Saturday afternoon before leaving I discussed a few new ideas with the GM that we might just try come the Halloween party in October. A few of those items covered were the lighting, the music, a different entry point, and how to get the best out of our photographer taking great on-the-spot pics (for a cheap fee I might add). There's still a month or 2 before we need to have everything set in stone so Kat, Linda and I are gonna take it easy for a bit

Susie...thanks for posting the pics...OMGawd....I will NEVER again wear a white, shiny shirt when I know pics will be taken!!! LMAO

Amanda and I are actually just getting home....we stayed the whole weekend, and as the Saturday morning peeps know, I started to feel like death after a couple hours.....but then, around 10ish Sat night, we actually ended up in the bar again!

Again....HUGE thank you's to all who attended, sponsored, supplied goodies, our new photog Lionel, the Strat staff, etc....this was my fave party as of yet!

Oh....and regarding the "issues" with music and lighting...AGREED. :) Best thing I can suggest is, besides working with them on improvements....step up to the plate during the planning of the next party and offer those brilliant ideas, then! :)

While we were all partying it up they were getting engaged! I just got a pic of the ring and all I have to say is OOOOOOOoooooOOooOooOO Shiny!

I'm so happy for the two of you!

EDIT: I keep adding stuff!

I will NEVER again wear a white, shiny shirt when I know pics will be taken!!! LMAO

Now ya know how I felt! lol

it looks like they did a major remodeling of the room?

Yes they did and it's still a work in progress. Fantastic new digs tho!

Hopefully, the next one will be on a Saturday night, so I can make it over

The next is in October for Halloween. I figure you'll be doing something on that side of the state too so keep in touch and maybe we can work somethng out so you can attend both as I'm sure they will be on a Sat.

thank you, thank you, thank you, Kat, Linda and Shellie, you throw an awesome party as usual!

Ms Kat, I had no idea you and Amanda stayed another night, when we saw you head to your room for much needed rest and recuperation yesterday afternoon, I thought you were heading home shortly after that. I was in my room, reading a book on a Saturday night while Jerry slept the night away I coulda met up with the two of you in the bar for more fun! Ah well, maybe next time.

I had a great time at the party, met up with one of the gals from another group site I'm on and she says something about it being boring..I about fell off my chair..for one thing..I have fun no matter where I go, even if it's at work for 10 hrs a day! Why have someone else provide fun for you, can't one have the attitude of, this is something different, I'm gonna see what it's like and have fun anyway or at least try to?! At any rate, I did explain about the music..yes we always seen to have issues on the music in the ballroom and 99% of the peeps end up in main bar area to smoke, shoot pool and dance to the tunes out there..

sometimes I think it would be almost easier (probably not as cheap) to rent out the main bar area, get a band to play for tips and have the ballroom for eating and conversing,'s just a thought, will probably never happen, but you never know.

Hey do we know who drove the farthest to attend this event?

Well, I know that Aoakley08 came from Wright county, which was a 3 hour drive for her....droberts2 came from Springfield which is at least 2 or 3 hours....fltpyborman was the gent from Florida who was in St. Charles for something....forgive me if I am missing anyone, but these are the ones I know of! :)

As far as conversation in the bar on Sat morning...LMAO...pleading the fifth on that one, cause I do not recall much of it!

Edit to add: Also, if anyone was keeping track, or recalls...can someone shoot me an email or post here, with a list of the winners of the Door Prizes, for at least the larger four items? LOL I remember pulling the tickets out...and Patrick doling out the prizes, but that's about the bulk of it! Kinda scary cause I do not even remember the group birthday shots....and I look like I am about to dump the cake in a couple of them!!! LMAO We also had a tray of Jaeger Bombs that I had intended to do with the birthday peeps...but hardly anyone was around, so I think I did a couple of them solo!

The girls and I would like to take a breather from hosting activities for a few days, at least! LOL But, anyone who would like to be involved in planning, expediting, decorating, gathering donations of costume contest prizes, etc....for the Halloween party...please shoot me an email as well! I will be contacting everyone interested for a planning meeting! :)

Well poop! We STILL need someone to start planning the opposite months that I do...there is NO WAY I can handle doing it monthly!

So....Jan, March, May, July, Sept, Nov are all OPEN FOR SOMEONE TO HOST! :)
It does not have to be elaborate or fancy...and can be held anywhere YOU wish to host it! Someone? Anyone? LOL

But Cam, Amber, and all who have emailed me...I am keeping track of the info and I WILL be hunting you all down! ;)

For now...everyone start planning their Halloween costumes...costumes will be optional of course, clothing mandatory! ;) Also, we will be seeking Costume Contest prizes! :)
