Hi Cass - This is a chat about the CWD summer conference, which is calle Friends for Life. It's not a kids or teens chat. You might be better off in one of those rooms.

LAURA, "Happy New Year" Now that the holidays are over I will get on top of hotel and room reservations. I am planning to fly out on the 2nd if I can still get F.F. seats. Is that when you need me? And yes we have 5 feet of snow in the yard and another several feet on the way this weekend.

Registered User Jeni Mom of David 18 yr old  (67.34.142.198) Thu Jan 06 08:57:14 PM EST 2005
Fine thankyou

Wow! I was looking at the pictures of Tahoe on the news and thinking about you. We got 6" last night and it seemed like a lot. No school today.
Yes - definitely come in on the 2nd. The Italian group arrives on the 3rd, and I'll need your help by then, ok? The room block is 50% full right now, so it's time to get those rooms reserved for those who haven't done so yet.

I just saw the Will Cross is the keynote speaker for the conference. In my life, I have never heard anyone more inspiring than Will Cross. He is NOT TO BE MISSED.

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events  (66.82.9.67) Thu Jan 06 09:00:57 PM EST 2005
I was so happy when Will Cross was definitely able to commit to our dates. He had some other climbing and adventure things he was planning, and we had to make sure the conference dates would work before we could let people know. Will is also going to spend time talking with the kids (aside from the keynote opening session for everyone).

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events  (66.82.9.67) Thu Jan 06 09:05:02 PM EST 2005
Yes, probably 100+ kids age 5 and under. This age group goes to childcare. Childcare is excellent... it is provided by Kids Nite Out (the childcare organization that works with Disney) and this will be the 3rd time we've worked with them. CDEs from Animas will provide the diabetes care in childcare. Do you have specific questions about childcare?

Thanks Lauren and Laura. Pretty sure we will be going. In the daycare, how do they divide up the kids? I would love for my 4 1/2 year old (with D) and the 3 year old (non-D) to be together. My little guy is very shy.

The kids are all together in childcare. They do divide activities by ages, but since everyone is in one big room, if siblings wish to stay together, it's perfectly fine. You may come visit anytime, and in fact, you HAVE to come at snack time to bring food, and you need to pick up the kids for the buffet lunch from noon to 1:30. Also, anytime a child needs a parent, we come find you. You'll be completing a questionnaire telling us where you will be at what times, so that if we need you, we know where you are.

I do recommend tat staying at the hotel will enhance your conference. You learn as much away from classes as you do in them...

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events  (66.82.9.67) Thu Jan 06 09:13:28 PM EST 2005
We do fill up. However, the hotel has way more rooms than are in our room block. For example, in 2003 we were at the Coronado and had 1200 room nights reserved. We actually ended up booking over 1500, and they did have room for us. Can't guarantee it, though. All they can guarantee is the room nights that are on the contract. So, to be smart, keep an eye on that percentage number and when it gets pretty high, make sure you have a room.

Reminder - For those of you who are volunteering, we are having a volunteer reception on Tuesday night. You'll need to look on the program in the conference center for exactly where it will be (we have an outdoor patio if the weather cooperates, otherwise it's indoors). We'll have snacks and beverages, and you can pick up your assignment and your t-shirt, and ask any questions you have at that time. Tuesday night... then you can go play in the pool.

Childcare is totally play-based. Totally. They do all kinds of things from games, to climbing, to arts-n-crafts, stories, movies, dress-up... very, very creative. After all, it's Disney, right? Also, Nicole Johnson, Miss America 1999 will no doubt be by with her crown to let the girls (or boys) try it on and have pictures taken with her. Will Cross and Michael Hunter (pilot) will probably also stop by and meet the younger kids.

Laura, how about if parents are asked at registration if they want their child to participate. Put the kids names in a "hat" and draw 4 (or is that 8?) names at the banquet?

The kids are all doing the same things, but at different times. We have Sports Central, which is a gym sponsored by Novo Nordisk with basketball, volleyball, martial arts, dodgeball, and relay races (plus games and other stuff)... we have pool time, we have arts-n-crafts, some diabetes-related games, outdoor sand volleyball, and something new this year - a Scavenger Hunt in the Exhibit Hall that will last all of 3 days. More to come on that.

When your kids do the fun run and collect sponsors, do they collect the money ahead of time and bring it with them to the conference?

I figure if the Lysol odor lingers, someone will know I've done some cleaning. Or, they'll assume, wrongly, that I just spilled it to make it seem like I had cleaned. LOL

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events  (66.82.9.67) Thu Jan 06 09:32:08 PM EST 2005
The Fun Run is a once-around the lake (about 3/4 mile). All the kids do it, dragging parents who are sloshing coffee all over the place. Some of the kids raise donations for the CWDF, many don't - it's really a wake-up and get moving and have fun way to start Thursday morning. Most everyone is out there.

Registered User Lauren Volunteer Coordinator/Mom of Monica, 11, dx 8/96  (209.181.71.176) Thu Jan 06 09:32:11 PM EST 2005

I have to get started on Sarah's quilt. It is so much easier to just make the signature panels. Too stressful to think about what to put on the square. Sarah keeps changing her mind

Registered User Brenda H. mom of Marissa, 17, dx'd 9/89  (216.68.227.252) Thu Jan 06 09:33:43 PM EST 2005
Yes, Deb, we still have the squares. You should e-mail Jeff and ask him which colors are available. He just went up to see that the kids go to bed.

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events  (66.82.9.67) Thu Jan 06 09:34:27 PM EST 2005
Erin - You can help the kids! We need lots of adult helpers with this, too. The Scavenger hunt is entirely in the Exhibit Hall when the adults are in session (sort of slow time in the Hall anyway at those times, so a great way for the kids to poke around more and find what they need)...

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events  (66.82.9.67) Thu Jan 06 09:35:11 PM EST 2005
Oh, Erin. You might be able to twist Lauren's arm (she makes the name badges).

Marissa wants a new square by July. She talked Jeff's mom into buying her the fabric (last Aug.), but it's hers to do. I did the first and I'm not that proud of it. She has to do the next one.

Seriously, the early registration rate of $275 for families is very reasonable. If we didn't have the sponsorship that the corporations provide for us, the registration per family would be over $1000. We provide a lot of education, food, social activities, childcare... and don't forget the shirts!

Also - just a reminder - for those of you who were asking about whether you can wait to reserve a room until much later... I wouldn't wait too long. Remember that this is the 4th of July holiday week. Many families will be at Disney. It will be different than other years when we've gone later in July.

The age levels allow for some elbow room.
Childcare is ages 6 and under.
Elementary is ages 6-9 (so 6 year old kiddos can go to childcare or the elementary track - but they have to pick one; can't do both)
Tweeners - 10-13, however 'old 13's' may join the teens.
Teens - 13-17.

I know this isn't related to the Conference, but I was ransacking the house earlier to find a protractor for Timothy and found a little note I'd written to myself: "11/20/96 11:25 p.m. blood sugar 43. I asked Marisa: When's your birthday? 'August 31, 1987 with a pickle on top. I was born with freckles.'" Even she chuckled when I showed it to her. I still keep an old-fashioned log of her blood sugars (well, most of them) and always write down the cute or bizarre things she says when I'm testing her. She once spoke in Spanish!

Focus Groups - Ugh, I'm not even there yet. Probably next month. I know most of the companies who want to hold them, but I haven't worked out the space yet. We just did a lot of switching around with the Convention space. Disney opened a brand new Convention Center - adjacent to the one we were in 2003. I requested some of the new space, and got it (yay!)... but it required some major shifting around of sessions and exhibits and meals and social events... all right at Christmas break. So, I'm just coming up for air. Sorry it seems a bit behind.

Karon, for the first two years, our daughter Kathryn, non-D, complained about our vacations always being about diabetes. So, for a couple of years, we let her bring a friend along. Now, her friend is "dating" Laura's son, Sam, and Kathryn doesn't like to miss any Conference activity.

Let him moan and groan, and make him come anyway. He will have an absolute ball. Most kids moan and groan until about 5 minutes after they get there and meet the other kids. This is NOT an event where the kids sit for days at a table listening to boring speakers drone on about diabetes... geez, that makes me sleepy even saying it...

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events  (66.82.9.67) Thu Jan 06 10:00:36 PM EST 2005
We can't do a DVD or CD of the slide show with the music because the music is copyrighted. It's fine for me to play it and show it along with the photos I've chosen from the last year, but to produce it on one disk and give it to people (or worse, sell it) is illegal. The photos may be online - but without the music. A few people requested that, and it's ok because the photos belong to CWD.

Kids in sessions are responsible for their own testing. You are responsible for your kids. So make sure they have their kits with them, and make sure they know where you are, and where you are going to meet them after the session. We ALWAYS have glucose in the kids' session, and we have juice, water, and other beverages at all times in the exhibit hall. Snack breaks or meals are between every session.

I always feel bad when I find out that I missed meeting someone at a conference. Well, if you're in FL, I will try to meet you. I spend much of the time reading the name tags, trying to place names.

There will also be Low Stations in the Sports Central area and there will be glucose tabs at the main pool. The lifeguards know we will be there - in fact, all the staff knows our group will be there and Lauren and I have already started meeting with them and teaching/reminding them about what our families need to make things work smoothly. Disney is great in working with us.

Hi Bernadette! Just received a handful of registrations from NEW families! Time to get to work! Bernadette is the Hospitality Coordinator. She is going to make sure that every 'new' family is hooked up with an 'old' family (someone who has been to a couple of CWD conferences and knows the ropes). That way, you'll have a friend going into the conference!

Yes - it's hard to coordinate a cruise time that works for people without missing school. And the cruise lines are absolutely inflexible in working with us.

I'm still here. Everyone just went to bed. Oh well.
Re: the cruise, we also don't have a lot of support from our corporate sponsors, and it's very hard to bring faculty and staff if we don't have corporate support. They are much more supportive of the conferences.

and Laura, I just attended a large cruise conference in December, the cruiselines say they're 110% booked most the time so they don't feel they have to do as much - that's wht I was hearing

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events  (66.82.9.67) Thu Jan 06 10:23:44 PM EST 2005
I still see 27 people on my computer... so there's lot of us left. At the high point, we had 33 people on the chat, which is the most ever for this topic at one time.  Grin  I guess that's a good sign that we're all excited about it, eh?

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events  (66.82.9.67) Thu Jan 06 10:24:31 PM EST 2005
Well, their attitude has been a big turnoff (cruise line). I can't even get a straight answer about where our meeting space is going to be. Makes it very difficult for me to convey information to our families if I can't even get a straign story.

Elaine - I may need some help as we get a bit closer. I'm waiting for the Orlando brochures to be finished at the end of the month, and then I'm doing a mailing of about 400 of them. If you want to come over and help (and have lunch of course), I'd love the company! Anyone else want to come out to Manchester for the day?

Registered User Laura Billetdeaux CWD Events  (66.82.9.67) Thu Jan 06 10:27:23 PM EST 2005
Yes, two meeting rooms. And then theater space (where they put us last time - it was terrible - we complained and went on deck to meet). Also, they didn't give us the fridges in the rooms we asked for. I made a huge stink about that. We'll see what happens this time. I'm hopeful, but I'll tell you, we won't be doing this again.

Registered User Julia Mom of Andrew 8, dx 20 months  (152.163.100.5) Thu Jan 06 10:39:00 PM EST 2005
