Whoo Hoo!!!!.....This is going to be a fun ass party!!!! If you saw the Scavenger Hunt list (in the making)....you'd be laughing already!!! If you live in Playa or your going to be here visiting, plan on getting your two person team together!! This is bound to be a laugh a minute!!!

For those of you visiting, we can send Sponsorship Forms via email. This way you can work toward the Fabulous Sponsorship Prize before arriving! Send me a private message if you plan to participate in the Scavenger Hunt & I'll get the form out to you.

If you're not in Playa, you can sponsor a team as well via PayPal!....like Team Mo & Joe for example.....ONLY KIDDING!!...we're not participating that would be.. like ..so corrupt (being involved in the hunt list and all)!!!

We will begin to post the Scavenger Hunt Teams as they sign up. We encourage Scavenger Hunt Teams to use this thread to rally for sponsors!We promise lots of photos/videos of the hunt.....and I know they are going to be hilarious!!

Then on too Karaoke....more laughs as my Joe has promised me he will sing!!! For those of you who know Joe's gravely speaking voice this will be a brave act!!!

Then Disco dancing!!....who doesn't love Disco now!! I for one never thought Disco Sucked!!! Must find my platform heels!!!

Come join us for the fun!! Come help support Coco's Cat Rescue!!
