Convention 2007

Recommended Posts

:gerryholic: Not sure where to bring up this question and I know it's early, but I need to know, asap, when the convention will be held next year! I so want to be there. My son and his family are wanting me to join them on a cruise the first part of June, 2007, and I told him there may be a conflict for me! I can't tell him what the conflict may be, or he will make me feel guilty. If any of the mods or admins know the tentative date for the next convention, please let us know!

Hmmm...

Is it bad that it's been less than a month and I'm ready for GALS Con 2007?

Are we doing Vegas again? I was hoping for some L.A. action (haha...action...)....somewhere in CA. Somewhere that won't suck the water (Gerry Guice) out of the man...

But I'm still so high after meeting my GALS it's not funny. I've been telling anyone that will listen how fabulous everyone is! 2007 here we come!!!

Any thoughts on the convention being in New York?

The problem with both L.A. and New York (NY even moreso) is how danged expensive it is to stay almost anywhere there. Vegas is hot and dry and tacky - but it also is relatively inexpensive and easy to get around thanks to the monorail along The Strip. I did NY last November and the cheapest room I could get was over $250 a night and it was TINY. We had to share 4 ways and that was quite a challenge as there was almost no floor space around the beds and even less storage space for the luggage that accompanied 4 women! I love NY and can't wait to go back again but it isn't very practical for conventions. Of course I would LOVE there to be one in L.A. or nearby as that is practically my backyard, but the bad thing here is very little in the way of mass transit which means you really have to have a car to see anything except the area immediate to your hotel. Something near Disneyland would be great, and there are less expensive options than the Disney hotels all around the park, but then you are still over an hour away from Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and almost that far from the ocean and no easy way to get to them except through very bad traffic. Also, I believe that the intention is to utilize the wonderful Suzi, who assisted so greatly with this last convention, and she is based in Vegas.

I have to wait for Wednesday to find out when the Scotland trip is next year, and then I'll be awaiting the GALS trip dates. I have only one weekend in 2007 that is already booked and not flexible and I am praying that neither Scotland nor GALS falls on that weekend (May 19).

Hi All! :computer: I am SOoooooooooo :hearts: :dance2: :dance: looking forward to another :igotgals: GALS convention! My thoughts are (for what they are worth), :vegasbaby: Vegas is the logical place to have our convention. There is something there for everyone, after all, many many stars go there all the time! Maybe we could consider an early spring or late fall convention? Prices would probably be a little less? (I'm guessing) The tempature would be better! It might even be easier for some of our GALS to get time off from there jobs, since most everyone needs time off during the summer months for family related activities. :hmm2: :gerryholic: Just my thoughts.

I'm planning on going next year too. I've informed my husband that I'm going with or without him ::D: but he's all for going with me. He's a teacher and the end of school falls at the end of May or first week of June, so hopefully it will be after that. Also, Las Vegas would be very doable from SanAntonio. Lots of cheap flights on SW airlines every day :dance:

For whatever it's worth ($0.00), I loved having the Convention in Vegas! It was my first trip there, and I'd love to go again and see some of the things I missed this go around!

Come hell or high water, I'm gonna be one broke SoB next year. :laugh4: I kicked myself for not going to LV this year. :doh: I'm definitely gonna go to GALS 2007 and I'm robbing a bank for Scotland. :lol:

I'll be keeping my eyes posted for the tentative dates. Take your time Admin/Mods. We'll all still be here once a date is set in Gerry's pants stone. :kiss:

I'm there.

Whenever. Wherever.

Maybe Canada? I just found this amazingly inexpensive, all suites hotel in the centre of the city and it would be perfect.

And the weather isn't as hot as Nevada, and all of you have passports, and, after all, Gerard has made most of his movies here anyway....................

Besides we're very friendly here, just like puppies :lolita:

Just a thought.................

Since it seems that the .net convention might not be in Colorado next year, how about Denver for GALS 2007...say in September when all the aspens are turning? It is very pleasant weather wise, there is PLENTY of touristy things to do, hotels are fairly cheap and it's a place that is centrally located. Plus it is early enough in the year that you won't have to deal with snow if you are driving here. Just a suggestion...

Unless there is a bun in the oven I'm there for 2007 be it Vegas, LA, NYC or wherever. Chicago does sound nice - thanks Suz. ::D: Less travel for me. ::D: I had a blast in Vegas. Actually, as Katie mentioned, Vegas was good and why spoil a good thing?

Hey GALS, I can tell you for sure that the next convention will be in Vegas again next year and will be approximately around the same time as it was this year. Once we nail down the exact dates, they will be posted ASAP. :kisswink:

Vegas in June, Glasgow in July/August - it will be an ALL-GB-Convention summer for me in 2007!!!!! I'm taking the hubby to Scotland but Vegas is all mine, my weekend with just the GALS (oh, if any of the PALS decide to join us that's fine too - but my hub won't be one of 'em).

Ah well, Vegas it is then.

Now just the problem of how to arrange to get the vacation time for the GALS Con AND Glasgow since they're going to be reaaaaaaly close together now... :bonk:

Gees...

(I know, I know, complaining about vacations...shoot me....)

Also, can I use any more elipses in one post....????..... :doh:

All I know is that you Admins need to pick a firm date quickly because

VEGAS IS ONLY 49 WEEKS AWAY, BABY!!!

Personally, I liked the June date. Made for a BITCHIN' birthday (right Stef?!)

Vegas next summer woo hoo! I've already told my husband I'm going with or without him. He says he's coming with me. If there aren't any other hubbies for him to hang out with he can entertain himself in the casino.

I'm so happy it's going to be in Vegas next year! :vegasbaby: I missed so much this time, and it'll be nice to actually see the strip next year! Oh, yeah, and maybe I'll actually remember to gamble a little! Don't even mind missing Scotland too much, knowing I've got this to look forward to. Also, the sooner we know the dates for next year's Con, I can buy my ticket for Phantom at the Venetian! Can't wait to see it again. (Better yet, wouldn't it be wonderful if we could make that one of the Con events!)

Once again, I want to thank all of the wonderful women who work so hard to make the Con such an amazing experience. :bow2::yourock: :goodjob2: :drink:

I'm thinking that if Nathan is well enough... I would like him to come with me! He's very shy, and it would do him good to do something where he meets new people.... besides, he's been stuck in this house for half a year!!!.

By next June, our CD should be completed, so it would be great to have him there to promote it, and sign his autograph!!!

He would be fine just doing his own thing a lot of the time... but I am sure he would come to plays, parties and such.

We will just have to wait and see if we can swing this financially.... as we are spending a TON of $$ on his studio!

Oh, Swan, do you realize what a celebrity he would be! It would be so wonderful if he could come, he would be so fawned over, he'd never be the same! :lol:
