It has finally happened: the first ever meeting in Sploofus history.

I can not speak for the other attendees, but I had an amaizing time. I have met wonderful, interesting and funny people. It was great!

I would like to thank everybody who came here in spite of their personal commitments and distant traveling. It was a very interesting new experience for all of us.

Kelly aka Chickfbref1 has been a dynamite! She has attracted everyone to Chicago and hosted the event with an amazing energy.

I would like to thank Missashley for covering our get-together and creating a very nice site for the pictures.

I wish more people would attend especially those that have expressed their intrest earlier and those that were expected to come. I hope that next time would work better for their schedule.

I also hope that more people would be able to learn about the meeting in advance via the home page of Sploofus.

Anyway, thank you all.... Simon.

I think it was great that you were able to pull this together, and that folks were able to attend from far-flung locations. I was at a wedding this past weekend in Newport, RI, and it was kind of hard to be in 2 places at once, or I surely would have been there. Hopefully I will be able to make the next get-together.

Hear! Hear! Simon, you did a great job of promoting the cruise. Fred and I had a great time and enjoyed meeting you and your wife Yulia!

I had a blast. It was like a family reunion (a Sploofamily Reunion). Everyone was really fun and there was never a dull moment. My sides hurt at times from laughing so hard.

Thanks to Simon for instigating this...everyone (Lodi, Jean, Embee, Kaufman, Koota, Phred, Skag & Mr. Miles) for making the trip.

I didn't quite know how it would all end up when we started this thing...suffice to say it exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. Not only did I get to meet everyone, but I made a BUNCH of great frienships that I know will endure.

Thanks again...

Look out Jean...Sploof Prize patrol!!

Perhaps next year we can plan a little farther ahead...I'd love to come by and have a few tipples and laughs!

I'm glad everyone had a good time and

here's to the next one...Let's quadruple the amount of attendees!

Simon and Kelly,
Thank you so much for being such wonderful hosts! Mr M and I had a fantastic time and will try to attend any future events. It was so fun to meet everyone - what a nice group of folks!
Yours truly,

I have a lot of things I want to say - thanks to the academy, etc., but I just rolled in a few hours ago from Chicago and headed straight to the kids' school to pick them up for 3 hours of dance class. I'm so dead tired right now that I'm sitting at a gym, literally nodding off in a chair. KELLY WOULDN'T LET ME SLEEP FOR 3 DAYS STRAIGHT!

Anyway, once a get a good night's sleep and have my wits about me again, I'll be back here with my comments.

So glad you guys had fun and keeping those of us back home well-informed! I had a feeling Kelly would be a delightful handful! Can't wait to meet you all someday.

Thank you one and all! Kelly and Simon for organizing it, and everyone who took part. How do I return to the real world now?
