    Hey all just wanted to remind everyone that even though the party is starting earlier the actual post time for the race is 4:24 our time so if you need to be late it's not a problem at all

    Please do not hate me, but I may not be finished with the project (construction at the house) in time to get to this event. I'm working w/ contractors so I'm sort of at their mercy. If I get done in time I will def. stop in. Have Fun regardless!!!

    If we're still looking for a location we could hold it at my house. There's plenty of room although the TV might be a bit small

      I'm so glad you are able to host. This has the potential to be a very very fun event.

    OK, I have an idea. If you want to do hats, and enuf ladies sign up, how about a hat contest? We start with a plain straw hat and have fun decorating it ourselves. Paint (if you like), ribbons, feathers, pins, buttons, beads, etc. Give little while resents for the biggest, the most colorful, the gaudiest. . .

      I think that would be a great idea.

    What's the update on this? Has the location changed? I do not have the space to host a party at this time (construction going on). Please let us know the new updates. Thanks!!!

    Hi Ladies! I just got back from Italy and because the husband hasn't seen me in two weeks, he planned a special date...on this day. Oy. So I just sent an e-mail. Can anyone host this event?

      My place is too small and no cable.

      May 1

    • Michelle

      My place would be large enough, but my TV is not very big. I'd be ok hosting if everyone is ok with that
