Las Vegas 2012: We’re still working on plans for a B&P gathering in Las Vegas next June. We’re tentatively planning on the weekend of June 8–10, but that could be changed. A music festival / carnival called The Electric Daisy Carnival haven’t announced their dates yet and they draw upwards of 80,000 people which would make hotel rates skyrocket. We’ll probably adjust our date accordingly as soon as we know the EDC date. Here’s a trailer for last year’s Electric Daisy Carnival. Looks like quite an event.
Barb is gathering information about side trips also which we’ll pass along when we get a little closer.
Contest prizes: I’ll be getting some T-shirts in the next couple of weeks that we can use as prizes for contests. We can always use them as prizes for caption contests but it would be nice to come up with a different type of contest. Anyone have any ideas?
Website ideas: I have a few things on my list to look into as far as B&P is concerned. Things like making B&P more accessible on mobile devices, some slight formatting changes, a Facebook page etc. I had a request to have links open in another tab. If you have any suggestions I’d like to hear them.
Gus & Trixie update: Gus has been coming in the door much better recently. There seems to be a lot of activity (construction) on our street lately so that may have something to do with it. He’s still reluctant to go outside easily. I usually have to get Trixie all the way to the street before Gus will come out. Then I have to walk back to the house and close the door. Trixie is about the same. She loves to play with her toys.
This weekend I’ll be working on a trivia night that’s coming up in 2 weeks. I’ll also be keeping an eye on the news with Hurricane Irene battering the east coast.
That’s what’s going on in my world. What’s going on in yours?
