People I am not sure why people have not confirmed that they were going to go to the convention. When I turned the convention over to Bob P. We had almost 500 people who wanted to go. I am not sure if it is the Internet and people just filled out the form while passing though and did not know what they were filling out.
Maybe people as Tim and I have run into a problem coming up with the money with other things life has thrown at us. Margi and I tried very hard to keep the cost down but just was not able.
I also think from a few letters I have received, that some are afraid that trouble will break out. That there might be some Internet nut on here, waiting to do us harm. Well there is a big difference in writing things on the boards and emailing them, than there is face to face. I think that your fears are wrong for many reasons. I guess I am the one person on the board that has met the most people face to face on this site. Everyone I met was normal and very nice. Not one fight broke out in Drummers carport believe it or not. The demon was the only thing that showed his butt! If this is a reason you can let that fear go right out the window.
If you fear the convention is going to be boring! Well fear not ! You have not met DJ nothing is boring if DJ is there! Clusterheads boring no way! I think we laughed more than anything else when I met others like me.
Fear of having a attack in from of us. Now who better could you have a attack in from of than one of us.
I have not given up on going to the convention. I will pay my $75 fee and see what happens if I can’t go then I will let someone else have my place.
Think about it. I promise you, you will have a good time and the feeling you get when you met others will be one you will never forget! Even your family members who do not have clusters but have to watch will learn and have a good time. It is just as important for them to know they are not alone.
If moneys the problem have a yard sale! Who knows you might win your money back when you get there.
Maybe people who live in the same state could carpool! We could cut cost with roommates! Theres got to be away to work this out so more can go.
If I have not touched on a reason you can’t go, write me make together we can figure out a way.
But lets don’t give up! Time is running out and Bob has to let these people know someting soon!
