Steve, Great idea! We'll have to pick a night and do just that. Keith and I would really like to meet you and Delmy --- we've heard so many wonderful things about the both of you from Michael, Becky, Diane and others. And I always enjoy reading your posts.

Well, great -- and ditto on your posts, by the way!

Do me a personal favor and don't make it Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, OK? Delmy & I would both appreciate that!

Actually, there's no reason it has to be dinner, either, if for some reason people would prefer to meet for breakfast or lunch. The key would be to set the time and let me know, in order to prepare properly.

Naturally anyone's welcome to just stop in on their own, as well, at any time!

Steve

Dinner anyone?

Steve,

I really like the idea of a Playa Maya dinner. A commercial proposition from you is welcome by me, after all you are one of the gang. I assume this is ok with James and Anna??

..and I don’t know that I am in charge of anything, I am merely one of a small group of troublemakers (the usual suspects).

I vote we nominate you to organize the Playa Maya / PlayaInfo dinner at your restaurant. Perhaps a set menu and on line sign up would work. You can decide what is best. My vote is for a Dinner Party.

It may be best to choose a night towards the beginning part of the holiday period (but not the 28th), that way those that have not yet met can get introduced.

Steve you can pick the day, perhaps the 26th would work?

- Mike.

Steve,

I agree with Mike. My vote is for a Playa Maya/Playa Info Dinner Party --- assuming, of course, that you've cleared it with James and Anna. I also second the nomination that you organize it.

I also like Mike's idea of having it towards the beginning part of the holiday period --- what better way for all of us to get acquainted with each other? The 26th will work fine for us or any other night for that matter.

Mike,

For some reason whenever you are in Playa, you just automatically become the unofficial ring leader for our cast of characters and we love you for it!

Denise

Steve and all others,

Dinner sounds great as we'll just have to come down to the restaurant from our room.

Sounds great! We'll be there, of course, and we'll bring my sister and her boyfriend also - they'll be here over Christmas and New Years. Looking forward to it!

See, I told you the Swedes were coming!

OK, well, very nice to hear such positive response. I was actually (and I guess naively, in retrospect) thinking of doing the dinner before Christmas, when I suggested it. Probably should've realize that most people would be here after it. No worries, but that means we actually cannot do it on the 26th because of schedule conflicts. How about the evening of Saturday the 27th, instead?

Also I have to get my head together around this and figure out how to keep track of how many people are coming, how to do the dinner (with this many people, probably we'd just do a choice between 3-4 main dishes instead of the whole menu), getting the staff in... Give me a couple of days to focus on a wedding gropu we have arriving and then I'll put something up here, OK? Thanks.

Steve

Balcid - You've picked a good time to be in Playa! As you can tell from this thread, there will be a lot going on over the holidays! The event we are all referring to is the Big Fat Cat Event II (info on the Fat Cat trip in general can be found under read more above and there is also a previous post about this specific event - search and you shall find). If you are interested in joining us all, you will probably want to contact Anna to see if there is any space available.

Calling all thrill seekers!

Any other thrill seekers out there? How ‘bout joining the Unofficial PlayaInfo Skydiving Corps (Michael, Lynn and I) for the inaugural UPSC jump?

December 28, 2003 is the day we’ve chosen to risk life and limb (not to mention soiling ourselves) for the thrill of hurtling towards earth during freefall, then enjoying the view below as we float in the sky over beautiful Playa Del Carmen. Makes your heart pound (and bowels churn) just thinking about it! Lynn and I will be in direct competition for the title of Longest-Scream-During-Freefall – she’s a strong competitor, but I’m pretty confident I have that one in the bag.

We will, of course, be booking our jump thru PlayaInfo and using our Playa Deal Cards to obtain the discount and cool free t-shirt!

If you’re interested in joining us, let me know. Depending on the number of takers, we’ll have to work with PlayaInfo and Skydive Playa to see if we can reserve a block of time for us. If you are not interested in jumping, but would like to point, laugh and generally make fun of those crazy people jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, you can join Denise on the ground - she has offered to be the Official Unofficial PlayaInfo Skydiving Corps Photographer and Moral Support Officer.

In addition to the UPSC event on the 28th, I understand that planning is underway for a “Post-Jump BBQ Extravaganza” (or wake – whichever becomes appropriate) to be held at a currently undisclosed location in Playacar. I also have it from a very reliable source that negotiations are in the works to engage Playa’s two leading celebrity BBQ Chefs for the event. Stay tuned for updates on this event as they develop!

Any other potential members of the UPSC out there?

count us in!

We know the place you suggested Michael and we will see you there. 9:00 p.m. on the 26th. What ever happens after that hour is up the the stars!!! or tequila!!! :wink:

Ok, so I did'nt read the whole thread. We are up for anything. It sounds like Steve's place will be the watering hole, OOPPS I mean dinner place. Dec 26th. Is that right? We don't want to miss it. :cry:Play Maya right? any suggestions of a time. Later in the evening around 8-9 somewhere sounds good. That way everybody has time to finish their daytime activities before the fun really begins.

Mike, we need to set a date for our Muyil adventure. How about either Dec 27 or Dec 29? You also mentioned a trip to Xcaret --- did you have any particular date in mind?

Any other activities or adventures anyone wants to recommend or spearhead?

Phew.... at this pace, I'm going to need a vacation when I return to the states! :lol:
