So last night I asked Cora (my niece) again if she wants to snorkel with me and some stingrays at SeaQuest and she says "well, I've never done it before." I said "me neither, wouldn't it be fun to do it together?" Then she says "what is a stingray?" A loud round of OOOOHHH! happens. Daniel (my brother in law) reminds her about the stingray in Finding Nemo. We'll see if she's still interested in a few days. Otherwise I'll be snorkeling by myself when I go to the banquet in February.

Who's planning on doing swimming with the stingrays? I asked Jeff about it and he said when you do it, they provide a wet suit for you to use.

Suure, "convinced"....  more like "Hey, we're getting fish pedicures, doesn't that sounds like fun?"  Tongue

Hey did everyone hear? Today is your last day to get tickets to the banquet.

I said   TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO GET TICKETS TO THE BANQUET!

This means you! Yes, you reading this. If you haven't gotten your tickets then you will miss seeing my handsome mug during the evening of Feb. 2nd at SeaQuest. That's right I will not be letting you in if you try and show up at the door without buying your tickets before tomorrow. I'm just mean that way (you'll probably get over it).

So don't be the one trying to plead your case to the enforcer at the door because you didn't get your tickets.

BUY THEM NOW!

    Did my humor come across well in this text post? lol See you all soon!

Two days out! Food is ordered and final prep is going on at Seaquest.

For those that got their tickets to the banquet, don't forget you can get discounted tickets to the fish pedicure and stingray snorkel if you pre-purchase them. 25% discount on those two experiences. Good the night of the event, Thursday February 2nd, only.

There will be gift baskets at the event. Everyone will get 3 raffle tickets to put in the baskets of their choice. Standard raffle drawing to pick the winner of each of the baskets! There are some great ones already posted and even more coming soon!



Punch passes for the upcoming LFS tour (March 3-4th) will be available on Thursday as well. $5 for the card and that will get you into the prize drawings at the April 6th meeting. Get a punch from every store on the card and get your card entered into the Grand prize drawing for an amazing prize!
