Announcing Duckfest 2009 in NYC!!!    posted on Mar 10th, 2009, 5:58am
 

Rubber duck lovers everywhere, it is time to mark your calendars and start saving your pennies to travel to the "Big Apple" also known as New York City where Duckfest 2009 is taking place on July 25, 2009. Digicolleen and fletch have graciously offered to host Duckfest this year and digi put together the fantastic flyer above. Thanks, youse guys!!  
 
Duckplanet is abuzz because this if the long awaited East Coast Duckfest. Other Duckfests have taken place in Southern California, Illinois, and Washington State so we're looking forward to meeting a bunch of collectors from the East Coast including some long time Duckplanet posters (Can you say "postcardgirl"?) who we haven't yet had the pleasure to meet in person! More details about this year's Duckfest to follow in upcoming weeks and months!

Lucy, I can't wait to meet you after all these years!! You've already got your room reserved? Do you know of some special hotel?? I was going to wait to find out where DF was gonna be before reserving a room.

I am moving back to the east coast over the summer. And I would love to go, I just need more information. If you dont have any information about it dont stress.  
Thanks!!!

I would love to go.  I live with a reasonable drive to NYC so hopefully I can make it.  Though I am unsure about getting time off work.

WinkWell actually I was born and raised on Staten Island. I still have some very  close friends who always have a bed for me. So I've already put in my request for a bed on the 25th. Skip, my husband, said he can already see that this one day Duckfest is probably going to turn into a four day weekend and he's probably right. But there are bargins to be had in the Big Apple. I'm sure Colleen can steer you to them better than I since I never have to stay at a Hotel. Smiley

Hello everyone,
 
So far here is who I have coming for sure:
 
Charlotte and Marcel
Colleen (squeakyb.)
Lucy
Jbeep
 
I need others to RSVP through the email above if you plan to attend so I know if I need to book a larger place or if I can have it where I live. As far as hotels-Hotels.com has the best deals. I'm not sure if I can get a group rate if I only have a couple of people staying in hotels because hotels get busy in the summertime. I'll post some hotels on Sunday that will be good places to stay. Basically, any place in Manhattan below 80th Street will work. Everywhere is a short taxi ride away in Manhattan.  
 
Also-anyone who wants to spend a couple of extra days out here-we can get together and I will be happy to be a tour guide and show you around Smiley
 
Duckfever-I don't have your email-email me at the email above or digicolleen@AOL.com and I will answer any questions you have. Anyone with questions can email me  Smiley
 
DietCherry-Get off work! It's on a Saturday!
 
Take a bite out of the big apple! I'm getting excited about Duckfest 09!
