Here are the details:
When? - Saturday December 19th
Where? - Orlando. Final location will be given within 2 weeks of the scheduled date.
What will we be doing? - This will be advised within 2 weeks of the date and is subject to change for weather, project delays, etc.
What do I need to bring? - Closed-toe shoes, comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting dirty & lunch. A lunch truck also visit the site, a typical plate runs at only about $4. Water and Gatorade is provided.
Also, should anyone have safety googles and gloves, please bring them along. There are some available, but they are well worn.
Please be advised that we cannot have anyone on the jobsite that is under 16 years of age. Waiver forms will need to be completed. I can email these to you in advance to print and complete, or they will be available on site.
CHECK IN begins at 8am. I will be there to sign you in at 8.30, but the build begins at 8.30, so please arrive by 8.15. Directions to the site will be emailed as far as advance as follow, as well as a Google Map link.
Space is limited to 15 participants, so please reply to this thread, or email me via the contact link on my profile page, to advise of your intent to attend. Because of the limited space and interest shown before, please only show interest if you can attend.
For anyone staying in Orlando over night, we are looking to arrange a get together the following day at one of the local parks.
Suggestions for this are welcome in the comments thread. Please also post any questions you may have and I will answer them as they come up.
[Note from Robert: I'll be sending Theme Park Insider T-shirts to the participants, via Gareth, so please send him your T-shirt size, too. This is a great project, and I hope that many of our Central Florida readers will participate. And huge thanks to Gareth for organizing this project, too!]
Update: We have a thread going on the Theme Park Insider discussion board, for when the comments cut off on this page. Please post there if you'd like to participate, or if you have questions!
