    Too bad I was late. I found I member, and now recognize faces that were there. Anyway, had fun "stag", met lots of whiners (especially when it began to drizzle, lol). Drive home was much more relaxing than the one there, was that the wine, or the traffic?

      Sorry Bill that you was not able to find me. I met group members near the ticketing area inside the zoo with Meetup sign in hand issuing group wristbands until 6:30 PM.
      I also stood near the band in the Main Pavillion Area from 7PM until 7:25 PM, with Meetup sign in hand handing out wrist bands.

    Hi Dorva, called that number and no answer. I assume I am soul out of luck. Was out of town and did not know if I would be back in time. Darlene

    July 25, 2014

  • Darlene

    Hi, are tickets sold out or can one be purchased at the ticket window.

    July 25, 2014

    • Dorva

      There are only a few tickets left for purchase via phone. Call ASAP[masked] X3304.

  • Darlene

    Hi Dorva, since this is a casual affair strolling at the zoo - is more casual attire more appropriate - want to rsvp but need to take the plunge. Darlene

    July 25, 2014

    • Dorva

      Darlene, the dress code is casual.

      July 25, 2014

  • Dorva

    REMINDER,

    1. After checking in at the ticketing area (they will starting admitting people at 6 PM) please look for me. I will be inside the zoo near the ticketing area until 6:20 PM holding a Meetup sign. At that time, I will be issuing wristbands to identify our group members. Since this is a strolling event and there are usually 1000+ people attending, we find that the wristbands are useful for identifying members of our group.

    2. Next, for those of you who miss us at the ticketing area, I will again be holding a Meetup sign and issuing more wristbands from 7:00 PM to 7:15 PM near the MAIN PAVILION AREA of the event.

    3. Parking is not included in the ticket price. It is $6.00 per vehicle.

    As always, I would like to ask all that are participating to PLEASE keep your RSVP updated (If you are unable to attend, please change your RSVP to "no").

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    ~ Dorva

      Kay, most of us are coming to the event alone and socializing within the group.
