hi mr moderator! how are you today?

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom, 16, pumper  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 08:34:49 PM EST 2006
Good evening. The conference chat will start right at 9:00... however, I'm keeping an eye on the chat, so please say hi when you arrive! Smile 

Registered User Beth mom of Meghan, 9, AZ  (151.118.169.69) Wed Nov 15 08:41:00 PM EST 2006
Hi Laura,
Wasn't sure of the time difference these days (we don't do DST here, so I always get lost) so thought I'd check in.

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom, 16, pumper  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 08:42:48 PM EST 2006
Hey Beth - How are you? What's the weather like in AZ?

Registered User Beth mom of Meghan, 9, AZ  (151.118.169.69) Wed Nov 15 08:44:25 PM EST 2006
I'm doing well; how are you?
It's 72 degrees right now; we are sitting with the patio door open...was up to about 80 today, I think.

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 08:45:21 PM EST 2006
Ok, don't rub it in. 40 and raining... supposed to t-storm tonight (which is weird), and the snow showers tomorrow through the weekend. Pretty dreary. At least if it's going to snow, it should stick!

Registered User Beth mom of Meghan, 9, AZ  (151.118.169.69) Wed Nov 15 08:45:41 PM EST 2006
Sorry, that sounds so bragging-ish...I have no control over the weather, but I do enjoy it at this time of year!

Registered User Beth mom of Meghan, 9, AZ  (151.118.169.69) Wed Nov 15 08:46:46 PM EST 2006
Wow, snow...I lived in snow-country (Flagstaff, AZ) for college, and though it's beautiful and I love it, I don't want to shovel it. We do miss out on having actual "seasons"...I'm trying to teach my kindergartners about fall right now, and they just can't get it...no wonder, right?  LOL 

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 08:46:53 PM EST 2006
I love the Fall, and I love a cold, crisp Thanksgiving. Last year, we had about a foot or so of snow on Weds before Thanksgiving, and I had a lot of company driving hours and hours from out of town. The roads were awful!

Registered User Jade   (68.62.6.39) Wed Nov 15 08:47:30 PM EST 2006
Is this adults only?

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 08:47:32 PM EST 2006
Are you staying home for Thanksgiving, or traveling?

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 08:48:03 PM EST 2006
Hi Jade - Anyone may join the chat. Ultimately at 9:00, we will shift gears and talk about the upcoming CWD conferences. You are welcome to stay.

Registered User Jade   (68.62.6.39) Wed Nov 15 08:48:40 PM EST 2006
O ok thank you, what are you talking about right now?

Registered User Jade   (68.62.6.39) Wed Nov 15 08:48:56 PM EST 2006
whom are you asking?

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 08:49:18 PM EST 2006
So Beth, I see 6 other people besides you and me here. They are awfully quiet...

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 08:49:47 PM EST 2006
We're just talking about Thanksgiving now. Traveling. Weather. Chit chat. What are you doing for Thanksgiving, Jade?

Registered User Beth mom of Meghan, 9, AZ  (151.118.169.69) Wed Nov 15 08:49:52 PM EST 2006
I remember a thunderstorm in college with the snow coming down - it was VERY weird. Every so often there will be snow at the holidays if we go to my dad's cabin (about 3 hours from Phx, up in the mtns) but it generally isn't much and doesn't stick. We are going to the cabin this year for the first time in about 3 years; I'm looking forward to getting to wear "warm" clothes! It will be one of my brothers and his wife, my dad, and the 4 of us...others are coming up on Friday, I think, after doing family t-giving here in town. How about you; everyone coming to you this year?

Maybe I'm scaring them... LOL

The others in the chat room, I mean.... I already know I scare my family.  Confused

That sounds really fun! I'm having a couple of friends from out of town, and Neal's folks are coming from Pittsburgh. I like cooking the meal.  Grin 

Registered User Billetdeaux CWD Events  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 08:53:20 PM EST 2006
Sam is going to visit his girlfriend's family in Orlando, though. It will be odd not having him here.

Registered User Jade   (68.62.6.39) Wed Nov 15 08:53:37 PM EST 2006
Well Billetdeaux, my uncle is getting married that weekend so we'll be traveling for the wedding

That's exciting, Jade! What a lovely time to have a wedding.

Registered User Beth mom of Meghan, 9, AZ  (151.118.169.69) Wed Nov 15 08:54:55 PM EST 2006
My kitchen is torn up right now, so I am glad not to be doing the whole thing....my dad is supposed to be building me new kitchen cabinets, but he kept putting it off b/c it was too hot to work on them (he does his woodworking on his back porch).
Sam's off to Orlando....wow! They grow up so soon, huh? I bet it will be strange not to have him there.
Jade, are you going someplace nice for the wedding? Far away?

Registered User Mary Catherine Amelia's Mom, 9, dx'd at 2,celiac  (68.33.203.148) Wed Nov 15 08:55:54 PM EST 2006
Hi all. Mary C. here outside of Washington DC. It's 57 degrees out but pretty dreary here too, Laura. With more cold and wet on it's way.

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom, 16, pumper  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 08:56:36 PM EST 2006
Hey Mary Catherine. I wondered when you'd chime in (saw you on the list)  Smile  Yep, we send our cold and dreary stuff your way...

So, I'm wondering how much of a group we'll have tonight... I didn't send out my 'usual' message to all the different parents lists... just sent it to the FFL and Marco lists, and the chat was also announced on What's New... we'll see!

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom, 16, pumper  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 08:58:31 PM EST 2006
Yeah, but you were the only person on the list I recognized! Rolling Eyes

Hi Jade - Yep, the Omnipod is a pretty cool device. The Omnipod folks are going to be at Friends for Life this summer - I'm excited. It'll be their first time having a booth with us. Lots of info to share with parents.

So... with that... let me transition right into the conferences discussion! Welcome!  Smile 

Registered User Mary Catherine Amelia's Mom, 9, dx'd at 2,celiac  (68.33.203.148) Wed Nov 15 09:01:17 PM EST 2006

So Laura, since we aren't making it to Marco, how many people have signed up for LaJolla?

Still very early for La Jolla - about 50 people right now. I'm expecting 300-400. Most register the two months prior to the conference.

Registered User Jade   (68.62.6.39) Wed Nov 15 09:07:57 PM EST 2006
i love it espescially cause there is no tubing and i am very athletic, and it wont fall off.

Marco, on the other hand, is double what we thought it would be in attendance. It surprised me! We have an excellent group of people... hoping for excellent weather!

I registered him for the BBall clinic. He started playing in High School this year. They looked at him and made him do it...He cant wait for FFL too.. but is upset with me that we're not doing Marco Island.. Lots of his crew are going and begging him.. I just told him that its too much $$$.

Registered User Beth mom of Meghan, 9, AZ  (151.118.169.69) Wed Nov 15 09:09:06 PM EST 2006
I figured there would be more later...I was just so excited I had to jump on it. LOL  Close to home, so we can drive, and I can talk DH into it! Maybe when we have a good time at LJ ('cause I know we will) I'll be able to talk him into another one. Hey, island trip in January? Good Stuff!

Registered User Beth mom of Meghan, 9, AZ  (151.118.169.69) Wed Nov 15 09:09:31 PM EST 2006
Jade, I think that' s great. My daughter's new pump is supposed to arrive tomorrow; she's going onto a Cozmo.

Jade, are you coming to Orlando this summer for the conference? Maybe you can tell us what you think after wearing the Omnipod for 6 months. Smile 

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom, 16, pumper  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 09:11:06 PM EST 2006
Stacey, remind him that the reason we have lots of different conferences in lots of different places is so that families can pick one that hopefully is close to them or close to somewhere they want to vacation. The intent was never for people to go to each and every one!

Registered User Tammy Owen Mom of Aaron, 13, dx'd @ 11  (75.108.201.116) Wed Nov 15 09:12:00 PM EST 2006
Hi from WV. We are coming to Marco. Aaron cannot wait to meet the many friends he made in Chicago at our first CWD conference. Aaron too thinks we should be able to come to all of them now! We are going to come in the summer also.

Kim - the New York weekend is a family vacation weekend. It's not a conference... and we are limited to 25 families. It'll be pretty small (and it's mostly booked up right now).

Your mom is right, Jade! New York in Feb can be very cold! Beth, we're expecting about 250 for Marco. I had to double the room block... and we're pushing the limit on how many people can be seated in the ballroom (of course the dinner on the beach is no problem...)  Cool

Hi Sam - Aaron played his first hockey game last saturday and scored a goal! He is having a blast with hockey but still fights the highs and lows on the ice. Maybe you can give him some more tips at Marco.

The Education for CWD Foundation www.ecwdf.org offers scholarships to the summer conference. Their materials are online in January or so (and last year, the applications were due in April). I'd encourage anyone to apply - they will be giving out about a dozen I think.

Connie, I think Marco may turn out to be an annual event, right after New Years. We've already booked it for 2008 (January 3-7). If this year goes well, we will probably reserve 2009 as well. It's nice working with the same place repeatedly - they get to know us and to respect the 'diabetes things' we need. The Marco staff have been particularly good about this.

In Marco, the kids will be hanging out in the morning as a whole group (in teams). Ages will be mixed. In the afternoons, they are on their own (parents responsibility) to do beach stuff. So - with your approval - Aaron and his friends can do all kinds of fun things. The hotel has a phenomenal beach and a great pool. I think some of the teens are planning a pingpong tournament...

Stacey - The exchange program is on. The conference/vacation in Sicily that I'd been working on last year needs to be postponed. None of us realized that the prices double in August in Sicily because it is a national vacation time. The logistics didn't work out. The exchange program still looks like a go.

For those of you scratching your heads and saying, "Huh?"... we have been building an educational exchange and conference program - slowly - with a similar group to CWD in Italy. We've been there, they've been to Friends for Life in Orlando... and now we are planning some for the future. Giulio is actually an exchange student from Italy who is in the U.S. all this school year. We will have a group of 6 or 7 teens going to Italy to spend a week or so with Italian families (with kids with type 1) in August as a 'trial exchange.' Baby steps.

We've actually had a lot of interest from diabetes groups in other countries wanting to connect with us. The Italian group was the first in 2004, and we have pretty solid plans with them. Their organization is led by Dr. Andrea Scaramuzza in the Milan area - he actually is on CWD's D-Team, so we know him well. I anticipate we will see a lot of international opportunities over the next 5-10 years.

Oh Connie - I'm sorry. You asked that a long time ago, didn't you?  Eek  We are pretty close to having the schedule entirely done... so hopefully right after the holidays we can post it. I just need to check with the faculty that these times are ok with them. The teens are definitely going to MGM on Friday, and we've seen the Home Base place. We definitely will be able to get Guest Assistance Cards for our families (Weds evening by Registration) and use them all week. Sports Central will definitely be open all day Weds for those who want to play basketball and volleyball... and Chris Dudley is definitely doing his Basketball clinic on Tuesday. I'm also finalizing the sponsorships with our wonderful corporate sponsors. They are so generous; no way we could do this without their help.

So, lots of behind-the-scenes work going on right now. Working on the athletes for the Sports Central panel. Does anyone remember Jay Hewitt (triathlete)? He spoke a couple of years ago at the Banquet. I am trying to get him back - he was wonderful and so inspirational. Also trying to get Noah (the juggler) back. The kids loved him. Our martial arts folks will be back as well (Marc Blatstein and Fran Ott).

That goes without saying, Laura. Each year the event ends and I'm ready for it to start all over again. Although I'm sure you're enjoy a little bit of rest in between! Brooke was really curious to know who the VIPs will be!

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom, 16, pumper  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 09:55:57 PM EST 2006
It's a full time job, that's for sure! I did have a tiny bit of planning experience prior to working for CWD. I worked in healthcare for 20+ years when Sam was dx'd, and I'd been to and helped with lots of state and national conferences... but pulling together one all by myself? That is a learn-as-you-go deal! That's why I always look so harrassed at the conferences - I'm fixing all the boo-boos!

Tell Brooke we'll have the VIPs online as soon as we can! They all have contracts with the companies that sponsor them, and the contracts pretty much run on the calendar year. So, we won't know for sure that these folks are finalized until after January. We do know that Chris Dudley will be with us. And Doug Burns (Mr. America).  Grin

Oh, my, Laura - they are both amazing bur Mr. America... Brooke really enjoyed hanging out in SC with him. And then when she met Gary Hall, she froze in time...he asked her if she swam and she looked at him in a gaze and replied "Like a fish!"

Registered User Meghan   (76.1.43.31) Wed Nov 15 10:01:09 PM EST 2006
Laura, i'm sorry...your "official something" will be baby catching next summer...sorry!

Connie - With regard to FFL ending and then starting all over again, we've already been back to Disney to review the space and the program (that was October), and I go back in January to update... and hopefully won't need to do another trip until the actual conference. It is a lot of detail! We finalize the faculty and topics in August, within a month of getting everyone's feedback from July.

Registered User Connie (VA) Mom of Brooke, 8, dx'd 8/02 pumping  (24.255.126.149) Wed Nov 15 10:02:08 PM EST 2006
Laura, do you need a personal assistant to go with you in January Razz 

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom, 16, pumper  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 10:02:31 PM EST 2006
G'night Meghan! I'm glad you could come on line for a bit. Get some sleep.

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom, 16, pumper  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 10:03:15 PM EST 2006
I have one... Sam is coming with me! To visit Allyson, of course... not to help.  LOL 

Registered User Beth mom of Meghan, 9, AZ  (151.118.169.69) Wed Nov 15 10:03:35 PM EST 2006
Connie, do you need a personal assitant to go with you when you personally assist Laura? LOL 

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom, 16, pumper  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 10:04:19 PM EST 2006
You guys are too funny! How about I stay home and you do the work? Cool

Hi Everyone

Laura- with regard to the teens in the park.. Is there a way to have a bus that leaves the park earlier?? Last summer, there was a large group , according to Jesse, just sitting around for maybe 2 hrs, waiting to leave...

Registered User Beth mom of Meghan, 9, AZ  (151.118.169.69) Wed Nov 15 10:06:13 PM EST 2006
Hmmm....I think I'd rather be the Assistant Assistant than the boss. Unless you want to come teach kindergarten, then I'll try to take over for you...well, maybe not! Wink 

Registered User Giulio a boy...  (66.67.107.143) Wed Nov 15 10:07:08 PM EST 2006

hey wendy, how r the piggies> and the pumpkin pies??

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom, 16, pumper  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 10:08:17 PM EST 2006
I would imagine that some days the skills are quite similar!
Stacey - Nope, we're not going to split up the teens. They need to stay together as a group (and they do not have space at the hotel on Friday - their rooms are being used). If they can't find something fun to do all day at MGM, hmmm. I don't know what to say. They are welcome to sit in the home base area with Natalie and hang out. At least it's air conditioned.

Registered User Wendy type 1/pumper, quilt square number 488  (76.1.235.164) Wed Nov 15 10:09:59 PM EST 2006
The piggies are doing great we have one with a bad leg...but the other three are doing awesome....

Registered User Wendy type 1/pumper, quilt square number 488  (76.1.235.164) Wed Nov 15 10:10:31 PM EST 2006
and the pies well we had to feed one to the piggies it became a science experiment...penicillian pumpkin pie

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events, Sam's mom, 16, pumper  (69.212.59.83) Wed Nov 15 10:10:48 PM EST 2006
Also, there may be teens who are entirely uninterested in going to the park on Friday. That is fine. If they would like to volunteer with the younger kids or help with some of the volunteer jobs, that is doable. The park day is all or nothing, though. If they go, they go for all day.

Registered User Beth mom of Meghan, 9, AZ  (151.118.169.69) Wed Nov 15 10:10:57 PM EST 2006
Like herding cats, or nailing jello to a tree.... LOL

laura..my feeling is that MGM has something to offer for most anyone...where as the water park can get a bit boring...IMHO...
