    This will be my first time meeting everyone. I hope to get there on time, but I'm coming from downtown. If I don't make it on time, I'll look for you guys and your purple wristbands - as you make your way around the event.

  • Dorva

    From 5:45PM to 6:15 PM, I will be available at the Main Entrance/Ticketing area (with Meet-up sign in hand) issuing PURPLE wristbands to our Bacchus Club members so we can identify each other during this mingling/strolling venue .

      Hi Dorva, my girlfriend is flying in from Louisville, Kentucky just for the event (her birthday was yesterday) on Delta and her flight keeps backing up. Should we skip the purple bands or what would you recommend? It's only a 30 minute drive from metro and right now she' s due to arrive at 507pm. Originally she was on a flight arriving at 145pm. If I dont hear from you I'll just look for purple bands. Thanks.

      July 26, 2013

  • Tami

    Can't wait to meet you and everyone else Dorva. In case I forget to tell you thank you for all the work you put into this wonderful event for us!

    July 26, 2013

  • Dorva

    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"). This is important because we do not want to be looking for someone who isn't going to show.
