2011 SGGA

Post by bourbon on Thu Feb 24, 2011 11:40 pm

Due to unforseen personal circumstances, Alicia "QueenDuck" will not be hosting the SGGA this year nor will it be in Newton Kansas, We are hoping however that next year that will be a a possibilty. So there is no confusion, We have asked that Elena Hill of Hill Haven Sugar Gliders, host the SGGA this year. She has found a wonderful place in Quincy Illinois, it is a little smaller than we are accustomed to, however, we feel that it will satisfy our needs this year. There will be some changes, but nothing we can't live with I am sure. The variety of rooms available also have a variety of pricing, many eateries within walking distance and a down home atmoshere to help make this SGGA, just as wonderful, if not better than the 12 in the past.

the website for the 2011 SGGA will be located at http://www.sgga.info, it should be ready for registrations with updated information by march 1st, 2011

Let me start by first thanking Bourbon for asking me to help with this year's SGGA. Yes, I did agree to host this year. So let the planning begin! We've a great location chosen in Quincy, IL and instead of small I prefer the word quaint. The hotel has a rustic backwoods feel that I just love. If you'd like a sneak peek check it out here http://stoneycreekinn.com/locations/index.cfm/Quincy. More details will be coming soon so stay tuned!

I'm sorry to hear that Alicia wont be able to host this year, but am happy that you are able to step in to help out. I know you'll do great Elena!

The hotel looks amazing! And I cant wait to be able to register and make my reservation!

Let me also make it clear that Alicia did not back down this year due to health. I'm positive that she'll post as soon as she can.

Thank you Sherri. I will do my best and am planning a fun time for all. Anyone who has met me knows that I just can't help myself. LOL

Don't know what is happening in my life from month to month so really don't know if I will make it.
Looking at gas cost, driving time, whether I have driving help, and cost of hotel.
Seems affordable enough to drive but Mom is never able to leave home due to Granny being so sick, the fact that many of my closest glider buddies won't be attending really leaves it up in the air for me.

According to Map Quest this is about 9 1/2 hours from me. I really want to go but I don't know about traveling with a newborn that far. I will have to see who I can hitch a ride with.

Sherri, I was able to tour the hotel last month and it is amazing. It's a bit smaller than what we typically use but is BIG on cozy, quaint, charming, etc. It has a ton of things right next to it, fast food and sit down places to eat, a pet store accross the street, Hobby Lobby (I think) $ stores, Wal Mart down the streed and Quincy has a great childrens fun zone (can't remember the name of it) and of course it is the birth place of my sweet grandson Bentley.

I am not sick (crazy yes) at all.

I am not hosting the SGGA this year because my priorities and support system has changed since last July. While going to the SGGA is still high on my priority list, hosting it is not. My limited vacation and free time will be spent with those closest to me, friends and family, not organizing the SGGA. I made this choice several months ago and I am so sorry if it has caused any inconvience for any of you. It was the best choice for me and those I am closest to.

I am sorry that notification couldn't have been made public sooner, but I understand that finding a new location, contracts and such at the last minute... does take time.

I support the SGGA, Bourbon, and Elana 100%. And like I said, I do plan on attending but I can not commit myself to hosting such an event this year.

I have been involved in several phone calls helping to plan this years SGGA and they do have some great things planned. I am still excited to go and I think others should be too. I actually like this hotel better than some we have had in the past and I think a change is just what the SGGA needed.

Cora, it does sadden my that you won't make it. No, you can't miss an SGGA, it won't be the same w/o you.

I'll update more when I have time. I am at work right now.

Well, last year was actually further than Quincy and me, Jen, and Laura made it in one piece. I think it was around 16 hours each way. We were slightly delirious but made it there and back. If I have the time off and money I'm down to take turns driving. I promise I'll get some sleep before I drive, not drink so much the night before, and NOT take that damn 5 Hour Energy Crap again. YUCK!!!
