I am not to fussed with time, deepening i may have to bring Cole though 8-[

I have two dogs so if anyone is allergic or is afraid of big dogs then we may have to consider yours or somewhere else.. otherwise my house is fine..though dont expect a squeaky clean house LOL it's hard enough to have a 6 month old and 2 dogs running around to look after :rotfl:

LOL no expectations of squeaky clean... and we are baby friendly, just tell us off if we are cooing at cole and not focused enough.

I just prefer not to have my toddler and preschooler to watch while trying to talk... something about playing up to an audience :roll:

I'd be happy to come, but I really don't want to be influencing that first meeting with deciding whether to go for a Saturday/Sunday, so I'll leave this one to you ladies. Then if it turns out to be a Sunday, I can be in to help too. I have to admit though evening or weekend meetings aren't as good for me as daytime weekday meetings either. Weekdays I'm really flexible with my time and can usually find a baby sitter, but weekends and evenings affects hubbie as well. Evenings in particular are challenging as that's when I normally get my business stuff done.

Hey did you guys see this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=78&t=71809

Does anyone else think it would be cool to incorporate a stash rehash into Real Nappy Week? We could have a buy/sell second hand nappies and buy/sell nappy fabrics table if space permits. I bet that would get a lot of interest.

Only available dates at the venues are Saturdays :(
We would love your ideas and help though

Should we do the stash rehash at the Expo (eg: hire another room at Wesely/Te Atatu for two hours on the same day?
Or could we book somewhere else on a weekday or Sunday to do it? I have an excess of nappies to sell or give away.

The more events the more potential for publicity - but also the more work involved.

Personally im afraid there will not be any option in which everyone will be able to make it (i think that is why we initially thought of weekends as weekdays seem to be busy for most of the girls here, though i am fin with them).. however we can always do two meets right?

I think your Idea of Stahs rehash, is a good one ;) Id be up for it (though i may have to cling to my smalls even though i dont use them anymore :rotfl: )

Yeah, I think it will be impossible to get meetings to please everyone, and definitely don't change this one for me as I think a lot of the key people are at this meeting and we wouldn't want to lose any.

Since I don't know anything about the venues I'm not the best one for an initial kick-off meeting anyway.

I think a stash rehash would appeal to a lot of people.

Lisa, I was just thinking if it would be a good idea to sell some of our demo kit as part of the stash/restash?? Money is going towards new demo kits I assume?

Oh yes, if you can bring hte demo kits with you it would be great.
TNN can't sell the demo kit contents as we don't own them... We're discussing the refurbishment in the boardroom atm. Will let you know whats happening :D
