We are just over two weeks away from Cranky Dorkfest DFW, and the details are shaping up nicely. We now have our location and, in a first for a Dorkfest, sponsors.
I asked you to RSVP so that DFW could figure out the best location to hold the event and we’ve had just about 200 of you say you’re coming. That is a lot, so it means there was only one good spot to do this… Founders’ Plaza.
What: Cranky Dorkfest DFW
When: Sunday, February 24 from 1pm to 3pm
Where: Founders’ Plaza, 1700 N Airfield Dr, Grapevine, TX 76051
Why: Airplane watching, food, and giveaways
For those who don’t know, Founders’ Plaza is an excellent spotting area on the north end of the western runway complex. We should all hope for clear skies and arrivals to the south, but don’t worry. We have a backup plan if the weather is horrible. Just keep your eyes on the blog or RSVP to receive updates.
DFW has been fantastic in helping to plan this event, so it won’t surprise any of you to know that the airport is an official sponsor. But we’ve also had American Airlines commit to sponsoring as well. Thank you to both of them for really stepping up to make this an excellent event. I’ll have more details on what their sponsorship means when things get closer.
If anyone would like to contribute to provide something to give away, then let me know. I’m going to do things differently this time. I’m going to sell raffle tickets to those who want to be entered in the drawing. Half of the proceeds will go toward a local charity which I’m still working on nailing down. Again, I’ll have more details before the event.
Yes this is at 1pm, but you should hold off on eating lunch beforehand. We’re going to have food trucks pull up to Founders’ Plaza for the event, and I want to make sure to support them. I’ll let you know specifics on which trucks will be there before the event.
If you have any questions, let me know. Or if you’d like to contribute a raffle item, then I’m all ears. It’s firstname.lastname@example.org.
