Sock Summit News

This week in Sock Summit-land the goals and accomplishments are: ( For the purpose of retaining my jovial outlook this morning I am listing the accomplishments first.)

The group insurance policy for vendors is now available for purchase on the site as part of the vendor form.  Those of you that had already sent in your contract we sent a bulk email out with a link to this form.

If you are a confirmed vendor that has submitted your contract and you did not receive this email please contact us. 

Also, if you are a confirmed vendor that has changed your mind about coming could you please let us know. Thanks!

On April 26th we will be making all unclaimed space available to those on the unconfirmed vendor list. Those of you on that list will receive and email with the vendor login and password so please look for it towards the end of the week.

Canadian vendors we have not forgotten you and have your spots held. We have hired a NAFTA lawyer to figure this out so we know that we have all of our bases are covered. We cannot tell you how sorry we are that we were not more on top of this.

We now have a lt more info here and will be sending you a letter at the beginning of next week. woohoo

The FAQS page is up and running. We will be adding to this weekly. If you have any questions please send them to .

The general schedule has been updated. There is now more specific times for everything that is happening.

Teachers have been contacted (again) for material lists and other such teaching necessities.

The sponsors are getting the Sock Summit graphic for advertising this morning. ( Thank you Tim)

Today we are picking colors for the t-shirts and ordering them.  We will be making these available to you soon through our sponsors. More info on this soon, like real soon.

The class schedule is being coded into the site right now and our goal is to have it up by the end of the week. So send successful coding energy our way.

There was a bit of a snag here and we need proofing time so this will go up on Monday the 27th.

We are working on some of the more fun and creative parts of this and will be making announcements as to what this involves very, very soon. (Debbi thinks we should have a contest to find better ways to say “soon”)

We just have to make doubly sure that all of our t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted.The dotting of the i’s is what I find the most challenging.

A good start to a Wednesday. Have a good one!

LOVE the “soon” suggestions.

  2. Whew!  Just reading about managing the logistics of this event makes my head spin!  You’re juggling a lot.  You probably don’t hear it enough with all the folks freaking out about lots of little details, but you and your cohorts are doing an amazing things bringing this event together.  I would be hiding under under a table with a bottle of wine if I were faced with the job.  Keep up the great work!

  4. How about: anon, lickety-split, coming down the pike, ere long, in short order, posthaste, before long, betimes, quickly, by and by, directly, forthwith, in a little while, in a minute, in a second, in due time, expeditiously, presently, any minute now, pronto.

    Just trying to be helpful, here.

    Clicking the love button for Judy’s “soon” list. All of them get my vote because you may need all of them.

    Sending coding mojo and Mac love out to Oregon.

    Looking at BikeFriday website for possible transportation solution to the “What kind of bike fits IN a Mini?” May make a side trip to Eugene before SS09 starts.

    Off to check a certain website.

  10. I just HAVE to add these to Judy’s List: quick like a bunny; two shakes of a lamb’s tail; and faster than a duck on a June bug!

  11. I thought of some more:  like a rat up a drainpipe; like a bat out of hell; and my personal favorite:  like sh*t through a goose!

    Just want you to know I think you gals are the bee’s knees for doing this.  I mean, really, SS09 will be the cat’s pajamas!  You and Steph are beavering along on this; I can’t believe you pulled the rabbit out of the hat! 

    Did I see a grin on your face, Tina?  I thought so!  I’ll take my little zoo and go home now!
