Today's sponsorship announcement at Spirit Mountain Casino went GREAT. I was so pleased. I think we managed to take close to 75 folks from many of our organizations to the VIP brunch, and the announcement piece itself went off without a real hitch.

They treated us like royalty, and I think overall everyone was pleased. We even got quite a bit of news coverage, which is unexpected with a sponsorship announcement. Anybody following us at Facebook can see the video Carol posted right after the event.

We did manage to leave two people behind, which was a bummer. It was two folks from my sister city board. I guess they didn't hear the announcement of when the buses were leaving. I actually found it humorous. The casino folks stuck them on another bus heading back to town.

I was pretty much exhausted when we got back to the office, but we still had two meetings to go. At the parade creative meeting, I suggested we do zombies. We really could have a great 'cleanup' entry that could include zombies, maybe a couple hundred of them. The people at this meeting were fun and receptive, and we were loud and rowdy--a good sign for a creative team. I think I'll end up staffing this committee now that Kristen is leaving our staff, so I'm glad to see the possibilities.

Now I've got a few hours of tennis to watch (or sleep through). I don't think I'll get much else done. Tomorrow night I get a massage, which I REALLY need. I'm starting to believe my right shoulder is never going to totally regain its range of motion . . .

Ugh...I got a bad shoulder too. I don't even know HOW I did it. It cracks every once in a while and aches if I dare to let my purse dangle from it too long. Well - I could clean out my purse...lol! Might lighten the burden...

I hope you enjoyed that massage!!!!!! :D

How wonderful that the event went so well. I bet you were very tired. Enjoy the massage Thursday night. I went to cribbage at Larry's club tonight, and came in first. No points since I was a visitor at the other club, but I got a nice 16 and took first place so made $91.

I have the Portland tournament this week-end and hope to do well there. Poor Nancy and this falling all of the time. She is in an adult foster care home now for a few days.

Her daughter from Friday Harbor will come down Friday, when she is suppose to go home. I feel very bad for her. She won't be able to go to Reno now, but I am going to room with Dot now. Get some rest and I will call you over the week-end.

that is funny about the bus

I swear coordinating folks onto buses at events is harder then coordinating cats in a pig field!

I actually LOST my executive director in dc once -- he went to change and then missed the correct hookups (natl turn a LARGE group out to lobby day) missed ALL of the "in case you get separated here is the schedule and where to find the group" spaces .. shakes head

I expected it from the newbies, maybe even the kids we took along -- but our ED?!

and that was the day I learned, to accept people WILL BE left, and lost on bus tours and to make even MORE plans for the inevitable.

:)

I like the zombie idea Marilyn. They're very popular right now.
