CLASSIC NICKELODEON FAN MEET




Hey y'all, I wold like to invite you to the First Annual Classic Nickelodeon Fan Meet!!! [classic = 1979 – 1987 – this will not be a "90's" fan meet]

Dates are: July 31 - Aug 2, 2009.

The last day to register will be July 17th, tell them that you are with CNFM and they *should* know to give you the group rate. If not ask for Christine Solis and she will know what you're talking about. (Just in case.)

Reservations: 1-888-537-1087

Direct Line to the hotel itself: 1-580-482-9300.

Registration Fee: $10.00 at the door.

This is the perfect place/hotel for the fan meet. The lady I spoke to was Christina Solis who is the Director of Sales for two hotels here in town. Our meet will be held at the Best Western Altus. In fact she was so impressed with me and so excited for us and our fan meet that joined my Classic Nickelodeon group [ http://tv.groups.yahoo.com/group/A_New_Beginning_for_Classic_Nickelodeon/ ] while I was on the phone with her!!!

She basically told me that she and her staff would do anything and everything they could for us to insure that we have an amazing weekend! I don't even know this lady yet but I already love her like a sister and she is going to try and come and join us b/c she herself is a fan of Classic Nickelodeon. How cool is that?!

Y'all I am so excited I'm about to come out of my skin and I want y'all to be excited too b/c I know this will be a really fun time for us. Get excited you guys, it's Nickelodeon's 30th anniversary and this, to my knowledge, is the first Classic Nickelodeon fan meet ever!!!

Think about you guys, we're the first, we're going to make history and we are going to let Nickelodeon know that just b/c they have forgotten about us doesn't mean that we have forgotten about them, and we are definitely going to let them know that!!!


Alright so here's the skinny on the rooms, the prices and what we will have access too and I need to let y'all know now that I do not have the money to pay for the full price of the banquet room so the more people we have coming then we can divide up the cost evenly amongst ourselves.

dang, I just heard about this now. How did it go?

I should warn you -- he's a Fourierist.

Actually, it didn’t. I had to cancel it.

I only had a very small handful of people who were committed to coming, including my guest, and others who were coming but hadn’t told me about it. Then two of the main ladies who were coming, along with their husbands, had to cancel so there went four more. Nothing seemed to fall into place so we’ve postponed it until either September or October 2010.

So if you’re still interested I post everything, all the updates and such on my Classic Nickelodeon Fan Blog, the URL is under my signature, and I also have a C/N Yahoo group called A New Beginning For Classic Nickelodeon - http://tv.groups.yahoo.com/group/A_New_Beginning_for_Classic_Nickelodeon/ if you’d like to join us there as well.

Hopefully you’ll be able to make it next year. And thank you for taking the time to write and ask me about it, it really does mean a lot. :)
