  • Need Reunion Committee

    OK BOGP family, I am looking for people, ideas and help on the first ever BOGP Family Online Reunion! I contacted Mike about this and he thought it would be a good idea. My thoughts are as follows:

    - Need to pick a week, Monday thru Friday, for an online reunion in which we can create sticky threads with different themes to be launched each day of the week. Purpose is to reconnect the BOGP Family on these forums.
    - Need to figure out how to send a mass email out to all members on the forum to announce the event.
    - Need to create an itinerary that we can post the weekend before and/or send out in the mass email.

    Thoughts and Ideas:

    I was thinking we could start Monday with a "Check-in" thread in which there would be a series of questions that people could answer such as first name, Location, trips to WDW or DL, etc., when did you start listening to the podcast, what have you been up to, are you coming to Epic October, etc.

    We could start a new game thread. Maybe post a new picture/collage of images for people to guess all the images. (just post in the thread what you see)

    BOGP photoalbum in which people could post images of previous meets, etc. We could start this with some that we have already posted in the past.

    We could do a special banner for that week.

    This is where I need help, thoughts, comments, and so on. So what do y'all think?

    I'd love to see this happen!!

    I think we would have to get out the mass word out through Facebook. Most of the BOGP family that used to be regular on the forums are on Facebook now. The word could probably spread through Twitter also.

    It should definitely be listed as an Event on the Be Our Guest Podcast Facebook page. It would also have to be announced on the Podcast.

    How about the week of June 16-20? That would be after the GKTWVillage BOGP benefit Live Show on June 11. Also the schools in the Northeast will be starting their summer vacation later this month and family vacations will probably be starting. That week may be to soon to be ready.

    Any other thoughts and ideas?

            First thing to figure out is the week: I think the week after the 12 hour live show is too quick. Here are the next few weeks that are not part of a holiday, etc. which do you think would be best?
            June 23-27
            July 7 - 11
            July 14-18

            Main thread Ideas: We need a thread to post each day M - F starting with a Check-in type thread.
            Monday - Reunion 2014 Check-in Thread (create list of questions like Name, Location, visits to WDW, DL, Cruise, etc, DVC member, etc. Each person can fill this out throughout the week.
            Tuesday - BOGP memories thread where we could start the first few posts with images from previous cruises, meets, banners, etc. and others could add as the week goes on.
            Wednesday -
            Thursday -
            Friday - I was thinking of an Upcoming Thread with links and info about the 2014 Epic October, 2015 Cruise, possible ornament or Christmas card trade, etc.

            Activity threads: I know we already do multiple game threads but I was thinking of some that are specific for the week. Maybe create a new image for each day which would be like a collage of images that everyone can post and guess all the images in the image or maybe an image with hidden mickeys that everyone could try to find all of them etc. Maybe a trivia thread that someone could watch over and post a new trivia question as the previous one is guessed.

            So please add your ideas and thoughts to that above. I would think that a main thread each day would be needed and a few activity threads that would start on Monday and be updated throughout each day or at specific times each day, etc. The purpose is to catch up with everyone and get them back into viewing the boards after this week is over.

            What do y'all think? Do we need to create a separate forum for these Reunion threads so they do not get lost in the mix?

              Week I think Mike will be going on their WDW trip in about 2 weeks and may not be back until after the 4th of July. So it better be later.

              Monday Checkin thread Other suggestions would be - when did you start to listen to the podcast and have you attended any of the BOGP meets. I sure we can think of more suggestions.

              Tuesday BOGP Memories thread- I could start it off with pictures from past WDW meets. I have some from 2008-2013 that are already to be posted. Keith, of course, you have the old banners. It could be asked what are your favorite BOGP memories? (perhaps even some pictures of those memories)

              Wednesday and/or Thursday- I like your ideas.
              Create a new image for each day which would be like a collage of images that everyone can post and guess all the images in the image or maybe an image with hidden mickeys that everyone could try to find all of them etc. Maybe a trivia thread that someone could watch over and post a new trivia question as the previous one is guessed.
              You may be one of the only people who could do these, especially the collage of images. Could anyone else do that? I think maybe not. I especially like the idea of the collage so everyone could see how many of the images they could find. That would be fun. Hopefully many would try.
              Trivia thread would be fun for anyone would is good at that. I am not.

              Friday links to upcoming BOGP Events would be great.

              That is my thoughts for now.

              What about everyone else?

              Hopefully we can draw some of our BOGP family back to the forums.

                I like the sound of this as well. I'm thinking one of the weeks listed in July would probably work out best.

                Looking forward to seeing how this goes!

                  What do y'all think about July 14 - 18 for the Reunion week? It is either this week or the very next based on any and all feedback, holidays, etc. that I have received.

                    I heard Jimmie and Rhonda will be on vacation that week, so what about the following week July 21 thru 25th?

                        I'm impressed, Keith! Either that, or I've been updating our "days to go" way too much!

                            A picture game from Keith and Jackie perhaps for the later part of the schedule? I could run the trivia part.

                              That would be great if you could do the trivia thread! However you want to set it up would be great, whether one question until someone gets it correct and then another or just a group of questions per day each day, etc.
