    If my wife and I were, and had a babysitter, it would definitely be on the table. I live in Iowa, so it's not like it's too terribly far to drive.

    Yes. St Louis isn't that far from Chicago. There is a regular train that travels back and forth between the two cities daily.

    I just love events with pool parties! That way when I can’t make it up the steps on my own there will be plenty of help around to help me get out of the pool!

    I got stuck at a non fatty event in Vegas. 4 guys were very sweet and came quickly to my aid! I was embarrassed but they wer so calm and collected it was like they hauled a big’un out of the pool everyday

    Are the pool parties as interesting as they're depicted on the show "Shrill"? They have a pool party in one episode and I've always been curious about that.

    @ the past Naafa event in Las Vegas, the chair lift @ the pool was out of order (No sign posted), & I did get the aid of a strong younger gentleman(he could be an FA, but wasn't attending the conference), to aid me in getting my wife out of the pool. Normally she wouldn't need help getting out, but she'd hurt her leg stepping off a tour bus to the Grand Canyon, 2 days earlier.

    The great white north, eh?

    FF, how did your wife like it?

    Emmy, did you go?

    I figure reviews might make others more confident to go in the future?

    Sorry for asking a potentially dumb question, but what is an *LLCM* picnic? Is this something for those of us of the fatty persuasion? I live in the area and might be interested in going.

    Thank you very much! I am supposed to work that day, but I think I can find a replacement. I've never been to an event like that before, but I've heard about them and always wanted to go. Can I bring my swimming trunks along? :(
