If you're on FB or the Gaia mailing list, you'll see this again, but I figured I'd post it here as I know some of you are planning to attend the Longest Night Ball and might not otherwise catch the news:

With the event only two weeks away, we learned today that a dispute between the City of Kansas City and the El Torreon Ballroom will mean that we are not able to hold Longest Night Ball at El Torreon as scheduled.

However, that doesn't mean the party is off. We have initiated Emergency Backup Plan D, and will instead be holding 2009's Longest Night Ball at SMUUCh. This will mean a couple of changes in the event, as follows:

1) Since we will no longer be counting exorbitant space fees among our expenses, ticket prices will be reduced to $15 in advance, $20 at the door. If you have already paid for your tickets, the difference in price will be refunded to you.

2) We are now full up on vendors for the event.

3) Um... as far as we know, that's it for now. It's still going to be a lot of fun, and I hope you'll come out and join us from 9p-1a on Dec 18th!

There may be a few more small changes upcoming, but I am still in process of confirming those. I will post again to let you know as soon as I know!

Reposting, with my own delightfully quirky Pollyanna spin, of course!

Thank you, you are practically made of awesome. *grin*

Not sure we can make it but I wanted to offer you origami lilies if you would have need of them for the Longest Night Ball. I posted on your wall with a picture of them. Let me know either way. I have about 100 or so of them.

That would be wonderful! Thank you!

I have a few more stems to put on but once those are done how would you like to get them? I can always drop them at SMUUCh if that will work?

We could just drop by your place, if that works - I think we still need to return your hula hoop.

Yeah that will work just fine. When would you like to collect them? And yes you still have my hula hoop :).

I'm not going, so if anyone needs childcare that hasn't already gotten someone to do it, lemme know! Will work for food!

Linda Boyce is actually now looking into the possibility of having on-site childcare available, since we now have SMUUCH's space to work with.

Not that I want to snatch away a babysitting opportunity for you, but I thought that if child care was a major issue in *you* not going, you could reconsider. :)

Nah, the possibility of having another major panic attack because of being in an enclosed space with too many (grown) people, doing something I've never done before... That's what's keeping me home.
Besides, I'm willing to keep the kiddos overnight. I know how rare it is for parents to get an opportunity to have a full night for themselves! I might not have a ton of space, but I have a ton of toys, games, and a couple of built-in playmates here. :)

We'll be bringing Sir Dynamo to your house even if there is child care there. He's looking forward to a sleep over. :-)

And, we've reserved a hotel room and are very much looking forward to that. :-)

Tyler's looking forward to a sleep over, too! Aside from Jason spending the night, this will be a first for him. :)

I understand; I used to have a similar problem before I got my shielding under control.

Anyway, looks like you're looking forward to it as much as the niblets are. So, you go have as much fun doing your thing as we'll have doing ours. :)

My shielding used to be under control. Things started to fall apart within the last year and I can't even calm down enough to work on it. In that aspect, FML!
I am looking forward to having a bunch of boisterous boys in my house. That can be a lot of fun. :)

If you want help, you have but to ask; I'd be more than happy to work with you and try and fix things. I don't know of any other really strong Empaths at Gaia other than you and I, so I might be the best person for the job.

Will probably be asking you for help early next year. Our insurance is changing to something that's more usable so I can actually go and see a therapist AND get my anti-anxiety meds. I think that'll help calm some stuff in my head down enough for me to concentrate more again. Right now, any time I try to do anything it's a mess and I get a massive headache. Fun times!

So, does this mean it will now be a more BYOB type event? I'd be willing to bring a few bottles if needed/desired.

It will be a BYOB event, yeah.

Would that I could be two places at once. [pouts]

I know, right. I think we're going to be at your show on Saturday.
