Allnurses.com reunion anyone?

  1. Hi there,

    While on the chat room tonight, myself and realnursealso/lpn were tossing around the idea of organizing a reunion for allnurse.com at Casino Niagara in Niagara Falls Canada. Would any one be interested in attending? We ran the idea across th Brian Short and he said it sounded like a good idea to him. Please post your thoughts here and let us know what you think?

    I think it would be a great idea! I would love to go to something like that!! I go there every year, about June 26th, for something to do on our wedding aniversery. I suppose alot has to do with the spouse thing? She tends to get bored at shop talk etc. However, I'm sure I can figure something out, depending when this is done.

    Is everyone invited? It will be hard to co-ordinate time off for something like this (I have to request vacation 6 months in advance to make sure I get it off and the summer is already booked for vacation time). My husband and I were talking about going to Niagra Falls this fall after our youngest has started college. It would be fun.

    I'd be willing to go - definitely.

    We should make it 8 months in advance - to ensure that as many people as possible could get off..

    I was thinking that we should plan a year in advance. Real nurse was thinking sometime this fall. In Canada you only have to be 19 years old to get into the casino and that is the drinking age in Canada as well. And of course everyone is invited!

    I think a year or so would be good! That would definately increase my odds of being able to make it. Ecspecially if it was during the summer.

    Hi everyone. Just wanted to say that my intention of all of us meeting is just for fun, make new friends, and see some of the faces behind the names. So I have no political agenda in mind. I believe that is everyone else's intention also. So
    I'm hoping we can all pull this off. Have a nice day...hope to meet you all.

    Sounds like a bunch of FUN to me Let's do it!!! Any time is a good time for me. I don't think it'll be a problem getting time off. As long as we know in advance say about one year. All of our vacation must be submitted by dec.31 for next year.

    Actually, how about Las Vegas instead??

    To have a convention there can be really easy and not very expensive - airfare can also be dirt cheap. We can get discounts at the hotel we host the reunion at.

    I might ask Brian about that. I would be willing to coordinate everything.

    No thanks Suzy...this was only supposed to be a fun weekend. Kelly and I want to include everyone...but I never intended to go to Las Vegas. Any activity would be fun...maybe Vegas is closer for some of you ? What ever you want to do is fine.... but would still like to meet some people at Casino Niagara, as Kelly and I originally planned when we came up with the idea. See you in chat and on the boards.

    Hey Colleen-
    Vegas can still be fun - is it too large of a city or something? What are your concerns?

    Actually Niagra would be closer for me I think - it may be driving distance. I was just thinking something MORE fun - but it sounds like you want something more close and personal. Is that it?

    A reunion sounds great. Let me know when you're all planning to have it so I can request the days. A year of planning would be good and that we'll give us time to prepare. Can we invite some friends too?
