Hi everybody:wavey: Here is the official announcement for the 2016 docfish2u pin trading bash! This year it will be May 6th, 2017 between 4 pm and 9 pm, here: Marie Callenders Anaheim Anaheim Plaza 540 N Euclid Street Anaheim, CA. 92801 714-774-1832 There will be onsite parking. There will be no fee to get in and there will be food. We are paying for the room and most of the money we are spending we get back in food. Donations will be accepted, but if you can't or don't want to that is fine, I would rather have people there instead of money!!! Who is invited? Anybody who wants to trade and have fun. Who is not invited? Anybody who is looking to shark people. We had one person at the last party trying to shark people and that will not be permitted and if it does happen you will told to leave and not invited back. These parties are a way that Amy and I give back to the DPF family. They are great events for newbies and or shy people as well as long time pin friends. We are simply there to trade and enjoy ourselves with great pin people. Plus being at Marie Calendar's there will be free food and pie. (part of the package we are buying) We have to give a ton of thanx to Darice (pincrazy), without her help this years event would have been almost impossible to pull off. We are so lucky to have her part of our extended family!!! We look forward to spending more time with our pin family in Southern California!!! As has happened in the past we will gladly make buttons for those who have not had one made for them before. They will be expensive as always, one hug per button. Speaking of hugs, last year we had a game that when I got a hug from each of you I gave you two tickets and you could use those in a game. This year we will be handing out tickets again, but this time they will be used for raffles. We will have a large board with 24 pins on it and you can use your tickets for a chance to win one of the pins on the board. So if you are the only one to put a ticket in the bag for a pin you will win it. The odds of winning depend completely on how many people put their ticket(s) in the bag for that particular pin. We look forward to seeing everybody!!! Any questions please feel free to post them here.
