Nora & the BGW Memories folks are meeting up in the morning:
"Don't forget the meet-up for June 6th on Nessie's anniversary of the official opening day in 1978. Big Grin"

I'm gonna try and make the morning Nessie ride. Problem is I have work. Do I call in sick; take a vacation day? I don't know, but I would hate to miss the picture time and ride with everyone.

Anyone else planing on a special meet-up or whatever for Nessie's birthday? Later in the evening perhaps?

cotnoutlaw, are you showing up to keep me wedged in nice and safe while I take another picture? :cool:
RE: June 17, 2013 - LNM 35th Anniversary

I'll be there quite a while CK- I can organize another evening meet-up. What time were you thinking?

I always pick the morning so people can wander off and do what they like to do in their own groups. But I consider the 6th to be Nessie day. I plan on riding the Legendary coaster several times that day anyway.

Why did you put June 17th?
It was a copy-paste from the 17th post to keep the same format. I fixed it. :p

Since this is on a Thursday, won't we have an opportunity to catch the musicians in the Mix It Up/San Marco theater? Isn't that their "off day"?
OK, I will be there in the morning. I have plenty of personal days to use for work, so I am taking a mental health day as well. However, I will have to leave around 1 PM or so. Got some business to take care of.

- Do the Nessie meet-up & ride at 10.
- Take some Nessie pics
- Get a Scottish Egg if the stand is open
- Get some Rt. 33 Wine if the stand is open :cool:

*It will be a Highlander visit for me.

Wish I could be there & meet you all finally, but the GF has to work & I've got to be at a daytime function for one of my kids in school. No arbitrary days off for me!

However, I am hitting the park on Sunday! Would love to meet up w/one or more of ya'll for a German beer flight! :) I'm going w/the cashless wristbands....Too many food options to not try as many as possible!! The sausage pretzel can wait for another day...maybe. lol

I'm excited! My Nessie Birthday Banner arrived in the mail as well as my little stickers. They look great! See everyone on the 6th at 10am! :D

^^^ I will be taking pics of EVERYTHING me & my girlfriend try. AND posting reviews of each item.

(I better get me some more reps out of this endeavour)....hahaha
I can't make it at 10AM, but am planning to be at the park by early afternoon. How does one recognize a BGWFan? Is there a secret handshake? A special scream made from the coaster? I presume I'll just know because you will be the ones sharing all of your arcane trivia knowledge while waiting in line.

I'll have my freshly-released-from-third-grade son with me, and we are intent on riding Nessie on her 35th birthday.

And here is a picture of my lanyard, or as I call it- my BGW Bling! You cannot miss me! Just please say your avatar name when introducing yourself. Otherwise I will give you the look of confusion.
