Thumbs up Thanks Celia!

I'd like to formally thank Celia (Rattlesnake Gal) for taking the lead on planning ForumFest this year. She has worked hard behind the scenes negotiating with the Mount and other potential locations.

Those of you who have been forum members for several years know that usually someone steps forward in August to plan the FF and make the arrangements. Everyone's efforts have been greatly appreciated but sometimes we do cut it very close. Thanks to Celia we've got an early start this year which should help with attendance and fundraising.

There were some potential negatives to having it on the Mount (like not being able to just drop by) but I think the positives far outweigh them:
  • The Mount will donate 100% of the $10 ticket cost to our charity.
  • They will provide use of the Steamboat Lounge for our activities.
  • They will allow us to bring on our own food and refreshments.
  • Other passengers can purchase raffle tickets and participate.
  • They will help promote the FF.
The Citizen wants to help promote and cover the FF this year in a major way. All this publicity and advanced planning will hopefully make it a big success.

Celia is doing a great job but she can't do it alone. If you've helped plan it in the past or just want to help in some way please contact her. Thanks again Celia for getting this going early this year!
