Did you know that the major purpose for forming a non-profit, RevGalBlogPals, Inc., was to be able to attract grant support for a large scale RevGalBlogPal meetup? My dream from the beginning has been attracting financial support that would allow as many of our bloggers to be together as possible.

RGBP, Inc. now has a planning committee, and we are in the early stages of planning the RevGalBlogPal Big Event. What, When, Where and Who are all on the table at the moment. In that spirit, I bring you the Big Event Friday Five.

1. What would the meeting be like? (Continuing Ed? Retreat? Outside Speakers? Interest Groups? Workshops? Hot Stone Massages? Pedicures? Glorified Slumber Party?)

A Glorified Slumber Party Retreat with One Outside Speaker and then Speakers from Our Gang, with Interesting Groups of Hot Stone Massages followed by Pedicure Refreshers so we can all get to know each other.

2. When in 2008 might you be able to attend? January? Shortly after Easter? Summer? Fall? Some other time?

January works best for me.

3. Where would your dream meeting location be? (Urban Hotel? Rural Retreat Center? New England Camp? Southwestern Fantasy Hotel? Far away from civilization? Nearby Outlets or Really Great Thrift Stores?)

Hawaii. If not Hawaii, then close by me, here in sunny California.

4. Who would make a great keynote speaker? (That's if #1 leads us in that direction.)

Anne Lamott.

5. Did I leave out something you want to suggest?

There must be dramas!! Of course. I will write a couple pithy, provocative and pertinent dramas for us, starring our own members!!!

dramas- I like your thinking...:-)

Quotidian Grace said...

Can I be a star????

Presbyterian Gal said...

Thank you, Sally.

QG: Well, of course...How about something like "Martha and Mary's Spa Day" ?

SpookyRach said...

Oooooh! Fun!!

That would be a party worth crashing!

Teri said...

for the record, I don't act.

I'm naturally this dramatic.


Sounds fun to me!!

Princess of Everything (and then some) said...

I would so love to meet you!

I have to get caught up on the story. I am so behind!

Songbird said...

It's hard to imagine Martha managing to relax, but it would be good for her.

Presbyterian Gal said...

Hey Rach - likely you have enough connections to wrangle an invite of your own.

Mindy - Would be a blast, I'm sure.

Presbyterian Gal said...

Songbird: I know, that's what would be fun to see. I'll let QG choose which one she wants to be.

You gals know how to party! If you need a 50-year-old semi-heretical cabana boy for your event, let me know!
