I posted a description of the meetup over at Friends-of-Jake. If you have pics you want posted, I would be happy to receive them and post them here. Send a short email to and I will send you a "real" address where you can send them.

If you have issues with your photo and/or your identity being publicized, please let me know that too and I will redact as needed.

A song for the event?

Grandmere Mimi has offered us a song.
The Friends of Jake Song

♫ From the tables down at Louie's,
To the place where Disney dwells,
And the dear, old Hilton Bar we love so well,
Sing the Friends of Jake assembled,
With their glasses raised on high!
And the magic of their singing, casts a spell.

Yes the magic of their singing,
Of the songs we love so well:
"The Strife Is O'er" and "Come, Ye Faithful" and the rest!
We will serenade our Louie,
Till health and voices fail,
And we'll pass and be forgotten with the rest.

We are poor little lambs
Who have lost our way,
Baa! Baa! Baa!
We are little, black sheep
Who have gone astray!
Baa! Baa! Baa!

Saints and sinners, off on a spree,
Saved from here to eternity.
Lord! Have mercy on such as we,
Baa! Baa! Baa! ♫

THe tune is the Whiffenpoof SOng

See you Friday

Look for Mickey on a sign in the no-host bar area outside the venue at 6pm. That'll be me, or one of us anyway! We'll probably go inside relatively early to be sure to get seats.

Update: Convention-goers: can non-registrants get into any of the venue (e.g., marketplace)?

URGENT UPDATE!From Susan Russell:
To accommodate the shifting sands of the General Convention legislative process AND to make sure that as many folks as we can "fire-marshall-allowing" wedge into the ballroom at the Anaheim Hilton, the Friday, July 10th Integrity Eucharist was adjusted last night to:

6:00 p.m. -- Reception (no host bar in the the promonade outside the Pacific Ballroom)

7:30 p.m. -- Festival Eucharist (Bishops Robinson and Harris presiding and preaching)

Many thanks to everyone's flexibility in helping make this shift at the 11th hour. Suffice to say yesterday was a busy day.

So here's the revised plan:
Meetup begins at the: No-host bar/reception, promenade, outside the Pacific Ballroom, Hilton Hotel, 6.00. (If you get there early, check the Atrium bar in the hotel lobby)

Join at the Integrity Eucharist, Pacific Ballroom, Hilton Hotel, 7.30.

After the Eucharist: Bar Louie in the Anaheim Garden Walk, 321 Katella Ave.
