My brother is a Sigma Chi living in Florida and he was going to take my mom (an Alpha XIiDelta). I called and told him he should aks her becasue it would be a special mother/son moment.

I wanted to know if other people where going to go - if not I was going to spend time in the city - if a group goes together that might be fun.

Hi everyone! I am defnitely going to convention, but have run into a few snags. Two girls from the IZ chapter were supposed to go and we were going to room together. One of them can't afford her part of the trip, and opted out. The other I haven't heard from as she has been out of town on a school trip. If she can't go either, then I will be solo.

That said, I am now in need of a roommate. I don't smoke, am messy (but I try to be neat!!), I like RUSH & Pink Floyd & DMB, chocolate, and I don't bite. If anyone hasn't registered yet and would be interested in a roommate, let me know!

I am planning to go to the Sigma Chi ball and I will try to find the Banquet Room to meet all of you.

Hurray GC and AXiD!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Tresa - I know I am rooming with 3 other people - but there might be a few more coming - who would need a 3rd or 4th person...I will know in the next week or so - and I can let you know if you are interested - I can switch rooms so we can at least be together and there would only be one or two people you didnt know.

PS I love DMB and chocolate

It's getting closer

Hello everyone,

So, registrations are past due, we're almost at the one month and counting mark, so I thought I'd see who's definitely going to Orlando.

I'll be there for sure.

I couldn't go after all ... I was going to be our delegate but our alum group can only pay for a very small part of expenses, and I am about to be a broke graduate student.

mostly its business casual. But at 12 conventions, I've seen everything from a white dress with huge blue polka dots at initiation (!!) to business suits to shorts and sun dresses.

I have:

for saturday: navy and cream pants and short sleeve jacket combo
for sunday: matching white shirt and skirt will put a blue belt with it for accent.
for monday: light blue pants suit
for tuesday: multicolored shirt with fitted top (kind'a suit-ish)

remember its at a hotel, it'll be cold inside, so sweathers and jackets are good.

There's alot of sitting around ... both at business meetings and at break out sessions, so wear something that you're comfortable wearing sitting on thoses stupid chairs all the hotels have for meetings.

Is anyone going to the corporation meeting on Sat? I'll be there...

Paige! You already know what you are wearing each day????? Oh, I must be so far behind. I'm still shopping for a dress for the Rose Banquet.

Business casual is the usual dress for the day time. Rose banquet is semi-formal to formal... you'll see everything from church dresses to full length gowns..... 9 out of 10 will be wearing their "little black dress".

Sweaters or blazers are a good idea - you know hotel conference rooms - they can get chili.

I won't be part of the corporation meeting on Saturday. I should be arriving at the hotel around noon on Saturday... that's the goal anyway. I can't wait to get to see everyone. Tresa, who did you end up rooming with?

I just got an email from one of the ladies I am going with who is a convention veteran and she mentioned the same kind of thing:


For just about all of the sessions, meals, etc. the dress is "Quill
Clothes", which basically means nice pants, dresses, or skirts. No jeans, shorts, sneakers, etc. You want to be comfortable so I usually tend more towards casual than really dress-up. I also find that a lot of times the rooms we are in are over-air conditioned, so I always carry a sweater or jacket around.

For the initiation ceremony, we wear white or off-white (including white shoes, if possible).

I would call the banquet on the last night semi-formal. Many wear long dresses or skirts, but short cocktail-type dresses are OK too.

If you are planning to visit the Sigma Chi dance that we have been invited to on Saturday night, I noticed that it was "formal". You could probably wear the same thing you are planning to wear to our banquet, if you want to save space in your luggage.

Of course, during the off-hours, you can wear whatever you want.

I'm glad I asked, because I didn't know the Rose Banquet would be that dressy. For the Sigma Chi formal I planned to wear the formal gown I wore to the Iota Zeta Spring Formal in March. It's floor length, black on bottom, beaded top.

Patrice- In the end I was able to room with the two girls from the IZ chapter. It's a long story, I'll explain it all when I see you. There's still some confusion going on.
