2nd Annual HPC Convention July 24-27 2009
 
2nd Annual HPC in Columbus, Ohio July 24-27, 2009


Ladies, this is a thread to discuss the very informal (Swap) Hos n Pimps Convention or Home Pro Cardmakers Convention

A list of who's coming etc. is kept updated on post #2

We're getting together:
July 24-27 in Columbus, Ohio.
Hostesses: Manda Doorley (manda_dex) and Heather Tripp (chris1josh2)

The "Stable" will be:
***once I have a better head count I will have this information. we are currently working on getting pricing and information to make a decision to which hotel.

*As with last time if you want to room with people, that is great... it will help with your total cost for the room. However, we will want to know that as well, so we can keep a running tally of total rooms we need to reserve as well as working on getting the best pricing.

• The closest airports to the Easton area where you will be staying will be Port Columbus (cmh). This is about a 15-30 min drive depending on the time of day you land. Most of the hotels we are looking at have shuttle services, plus there are always cabs there to take you if someone can not make it there to pick you up.

• If you are thinking about renting a car so you can go anywhere other than the hotel area and airport keep the following in mind. The area where you will be staying is an outdoor venue with shops and restaurants a plenty within walking distance. There is also a Michael's, Jo'Ann's, and Archievers in that area as well. There are a few Hobby Lobby's as well, but those do require driving distances...so we can either car pool or figure a way to get there!


• Shoebox Swap location...This is still TBD...some possibilities are my house (if I can kick my hubby out for a day!), a conference room at the hotel, or possibly a LSS. The downside to the later, is there is not one that I frequent that I can say please close for an entire day for just us!!!


• The rest of the time we’re there, things are going to be pretty fluid. This is a very informal get-together; there are no planned/organized events. No one is charge of entertainment, meals, and rides.

• Kids are more than welcome. Scrappy will be bringing her sidekick, Baby Bella, with her just about everywhere she goes, so we don’t want you thinking that you can’t do the same.

• Ma Ma Ho doesn't want to see any nasty feet/pedicures on any of you!

Heather and myself are the point of contact for the Pimps & Hos convention. We will keep a list of who is coming and will answer any questions you have. Our email address: [email protected], and [email protected]


We would love to meet each and every one of you. All of you make SCS one of the very best things about our day. We’ve made so many friends. . .We’ve had some really great conversations. . .And, we’ve Rolled-On-The-Floor-Laughing-Our-Asses-Off more times than we can possible remember. So, think about it, and post here if you'd like to attend so we have an ideal of how many people are going to get together.

Subscribing... If I can make it, my mini-me would probably come, too. She will be 10 by then and loves the little ones!

chris1josh2 08-05-2008 01:38 PM

FaieeMom 08-05-2008 02:04 PM

Subscribing to first plan this out (the trip) for myself and my mini-me! I'll give a definite yes or no (more like 80% yes for now) as soon as the hub and I talk about it! I'm willing to room if anyone is ok with LV and moi!

KelliJo 08-05-2008 03:51 PM

If I'm attending then I need a ROOM!!!!!:twisted: :mrgreen: and put me in a shoebox thingy too!!!!

yoorah 08-05-2008 03:53 PM

If your not sleeping on a cot with me and Scrappy - you at least need to be in a room with a connecting door! Given the lat PHC, we're noting goig to be sleeping much anyway ;)

Not sure how we are gonna manufacture the photos, though. I guess I better take a photoshop class...

wildbasket 08-05-2008 04:14 PM

Put me down for the shoebox swap, I'll probably stay at my brother's in Dayton and come for the day.

If we come up with a kid activity (I would be happy to try to plan it) it might be fun. Since some may bring kids, I could bring my little girl she'll be 7 almost 8 then...doubt the boys would want to play all day with the girls.

daiseyfreak 08-05-2008 04:22 PM

Trust me, you guys will not have to make anything up at all.............I can pretty much bet that there will be PLENTY of black-mailing pictures.........

babitoons 08-05-2008 04:31 PM

Alrighty ladies, I am going to say yes, but I need to check on if I am driving or flying, I think driving at this point. Time will tell, I can't wait, I missed most of the first one, but I should be at a lot more of this one!

daiseyfreak 08-05-2008 04:37 PM

yay Jackie!

Good idea on the kids activity. Depending on the ages and how many I am sure we can work something out. Maybe we can talk my DH into a little babysitting service...LOL

I can always leave mine with my brother so no problem. But if there are other girls they could play I am sure, especially if the hotel has a pool!

chris1josh2 08-05-2008 04:52 PM

No need to leave them at your brothers. They will probably have fun stamping with us. I say all kids are welcome...as long as they are not mine!!

Wait that came out wrong...I meant that mommy is off duty that day.:D

daiseyfreak 08-05-2008 05:02 PM

does that mean I can bring Polo??????? lol, that would be crazy, I absolutely can't get anything done with him running around like a mad man!

yoorah 08-05-2008 05:17 PM

Polo can be the official PHC mascot! What?! You don't want to bring Chris as the technical support guy? ;)

daiseyfreak 08-05-2008 05:20 PM

what did I tell you about that Yoorah, shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! I'm on vacation, that means no responsibilities!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!! Plus, it won't take me as long to get there and home since I won't be dealing with airports, so he will live. Gotta get through the Texas vacation first though :)

He doesn't have kids so he gets his kid fix when mine come visit - he loves it..and they do too. That's how I am going to justify when to visit him...so I can come play one day.

manda_dex 08-05-2008 05:49 PM
