Good Monday Morning, Everyone!

Appears we are down to the wire for Colon Palooza 5. The rooms have all been taken, but if anyone is still interested in coming, you can still get a room for the negotiated price of $ 159 until THIS FRIDAY, May 11, 2007.

Call the Hilton, downtown Nashville, 615-620-2150 or e-mail your request to sarah_spain@hilton.com. Explain you want to reserve your room which is in the block set aside for the SEMI COLONS, arranged by Stacy Gleason. We are staying at the Hilton, Downtown Nashville, TN. You can check out the hotel by cutting and pasting this link into your browser:

www.nashvillehilton.com

The party starts on Wednesday, Sept 12, and ends Sunday, Sept 16. The main event is Thursday, September 13. Once you have secured your room, send me an e-mail because I will need a very accurate head count.

To date, the following are booked:

Me (of course!)
Lisa Rose (with hubby, Andy)
Scouty
JADot
Jams67
SpongeBob/USAKat
katefm (with hubby, Jim)
KathiM

(I would have listed "real" names, but thought the ones used here would be some folks identified with best)

So if you still want to make it to the party of the year...........nail down your reservation by the deadline of May 11, 2007 (THIS FRIDAY!).

Have a great week,

Stacy

I based my list on the sheet from the hotel, and they had only 1 person in your room. I thought you told me you two would be there, but thought maybe plans changed. I'm glad you will both be coming....YOU WILL HAVE A BLAST!!!

I so much wish I could be there to meet you all but, alas, I live in the UK and will still be doing chemo in September. How about a European Palooza next year??

I don't believe you, this isn't the last call, LOL! Anyway, I wish I could be there too, but I can really only get away from here from October 15-April 15, so maybe next time.

What exactly is the Colon Palooza?

Colon Palooza is a full-blown celebration of life.

It began many years ago when a few of us decided to meet in person. The very first event was held in Biloxi, Mississippi. Scouty, Lisa Rose, Andyman, and SpongeBob all met for the very first time in person. Later that same year, we met in Las Vegas. This time, Kerry, MikeW, Kanort, Lisa Rose, Andyman, Scouty, SpongeBob, Greta, Jose, Dana, and I attended. The following year, it was in Austin, TX. Even more folks attended that one....including nanuk, Kanga, scouty, Lisa Rose, Andyman, SuzanneChili, jerseysue, Kanort, Kerry (gracious hostess!), Jana all attended. The following year, Oct 2006, we met in Halifax Nova Scotia. This was hosted by Lisa Rose and there were about 7 of us who attended. This year, we're meeting Sept 12 to 16 in Nashville, Tennessee. I have coordinated many surprises and things to make this one the best yet!

So, call the Hilton and book your room. Anyone can tell you who has attended how great these events are.

I would love to go even though I'm new to the group. I'll check my calendar and get back to you. It states in your message to email you so you can get an accurate count. Do I do through this message board or somewhere else. Thanks.

We'd love to have you. This is a great opportunity to meet folks from here and reap a benefit of sorts from this disease. There is e-mail through this site. Drop me a note when you reserve your room.

Thanks!

Stacy

Hi Stacy. I called the Hilton and they didn't show the negotiated rate of $159 was available for W-F only Saturday. The regular rate is $299/night. I'll email Sarah Spain at the Hilton to see if she can help. I reserved a room in the meantime until I get it straightened out. Will let you know.

Hi Stacy,

I received an email from Sarah Spain at the Hilton and I'm all set at the $159/night rate. My husband, John, will be coming with me. So count us in! We are looking forward to meeting everyone. I'll be the "newby". My email address is: dls17@cornell.edu
I look forward to meeting you as well as everyone else. Will I get everyone's real name at some point? I look forward to hearing from you.

I am SO happy that you will be joining us! I also cannot believe that you are affiliated with Cornell University? Or am I misreading your e-mail address? My surgeon at University of Chicago is now high on the food chain at Cornell....Fabrizio Michelassi....or "Oh wise and powerful one" as I think of him! lol

I'll update you on the fun you and John will be having. Again, welcome!
