DemFest Plans

"I've seen a few folks mention it, but has anyone put together a bloggers attending DFest list? And perhaps where we're staying. I'd like to be able to find folks, and I don't know if I'm going to attend the "breakfast" since Darryl isn't running it."

I started this diary, cause I wanna know too! I can always delete it if there is an official place this is being discussed. Post comments here, and if you are not a Blogger member, you can post as "anonymous", but you'll want to include your name (or blog name) in the body of your post so people know who you are.

Re: renee
Demetrius and I are both planning to attend. I can start to enjoy thinking about that once I've got quarter grades submitted. ;-)

Re: renee
whoops--Demetrius was logged in on this computer. Now we will have to show up, just to prove that we are indeed two different people.

I'll Be There
Wouldn't miss it and neither should you.  Your fan club would be devastated.

Renee, make sure someone posts pictures.
And someone else had a great idea.  Last time there was a DVD available of the Dem Fest in MA. We couldn't go, but we bought the DVD.  Others in our DFA did as well, and we enjoyed it so much.  Maybe make a DVD available of different sessions.  

I am so jealous.  Wish I could go.

Thanks, but I want a DVD, too.
I am not easily satisfied with just pictures.  That DVD from last year was absolutely special.
Howard looked so relaxed and confident. One would never have realized what he had gone through as a candidate in a party not yet ready for one like him.

He is nothing if not resilient.  He just keeps bouncing back.
