Dallas Trip ? and info Please read!
There are a couple of problems with Dallas trip and I really feel a need to explain since so many of you are waiting to hear for work vacation time off schedules.
1. Cooper is swamped. They have a couple of big clinic studies going on right now. They keep bumping Teresa's trip because they hit glitches in these studies and they are taking more time. They now say they can't plan our retreat until April or May. They have also let us know that we can plan it for then but, because that is their busy time when people pay big bucks to come in for fitness testing (before bikini season) they can't guarantee anything. The other problem is Cooper can only accomodate 30 people. We would have to pretty much close the event to non-habit formers. Teresa wants as many people as possible to come. Teresa feels so awful about bumping the date, but it is 100% out of her control. She is trying hard to plan this wonderful reunion and fun time for all of us and keeps hitting a brick wall. I think there are actually head shaped marks on the wall beside her desk. So here are the ideas that Kitty and Teresa came up with. Teresa doesn't want to disappoint anyone so she asked if I would put it to a sort of informal vote.
1. If Cooper was the draw and you guys really want to go there we can keep trying to iron that out.
2. We can have it in FL at the Biltmore. Oh, it is the most wonderful hotel. I stayed there when Teresa did my photos. We can have 4 days 3 nights. We can do all the fun things we talked about. We can even come in a day early and go to Bush Gardens. Also, she can set up a photo shoot with her photographers to do after pictures. She would also like to do video interviews like on the end of the Basic Wellness tape. One of the big advantages would be those of you bringing your hubby or kids, would have more for them to do than in Dallas. For 30.00 you can go out on a fishing boat all day. My hubby caught 14 fish in one afternoon. He loved it. The beaches are great. There are no beaches in Dallas. I love this idea but it is up to you guys. The other advantage would be you can get cheaper tickets to FL than Dallas. More airlines fly into the Tampa area.
3. We can try for somewhere else if you have a better idea. NO CRUISE though, Teresa said that didn't work out as well as planned. The motion of the ocean and knees was not the best of combinations for t-tapp.
So let me know if I am right. Is it Teresa and your new friends you are coming for and looking forward to or is it Dallas and Cooper?
If you want to change to FL what would work for your guys late April or early May?
