SCGS Jamboree 2011 Genea-Fun Part 4 -- Post 430 for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I'm posting old (and sometimes new) family photographs from my collection on Wednesdays, but they won't be wordless posts like others do - I am incapable of having a wordless post.

At the 2011 SCGS Jamboree in Burbank, there were a lot of geneabloggers and we had a ton of fun.  It's been great fun scrolling through my photos of this three-day event and laughing and remembering everything we experienced.   

The next event on the crowded Geneabloggers agenda at the SCGS Genealogy Jamboree was the Pajama Party on Saturday night.  This was an informal "come if you can" event with no planning and no guest list.  Elyse Doerflinger suggested it several months ago on the Geneabloggers Radio show chat board, and a number of us thought that it sounded like fun. 

1)  Linda and I came in our pajamas and our genealogy T-shirts.  They were a big hit:

2)  Most of the seats in the lounge were occupied - here Donna Pointkouski, Elyse Doerflinger and Diana Ritchie are watching the party.  Peter the Parrot pinata is on Donna's lap:

 3)  Lots of picture taking was happening - in the photo below the identifiable bloggers include (from left): Thomas MacEntee (seated, with the knees), Elyse Doerflinger (standing), Angela Kraft (seated), A.C. Ivory (seated), Cheryl Palmer (standing with camera) and Emma (seated, trying to hide):

4)  After the Saturday night dinner, more bloggers came to the party.  The identifiable bloggers in the photo below are (left to right):  Heather Rojo (standing, in nightcap and nightgown), Vincent Rojo (Heather's husband, back turned), Donna Pointkouski (seated without Peter), Daniel Horowitz (standing in back of Donna, checking his email?), Steven Danko (seated, in the white and black PJs), Patricia Stannard (seated, in orange WikiTree shirt), and Susi Pentico (standing, behind Patricia).  In the background are Ron Arons (blue shirt), Steve Morse (seated) and Dan Lynch (yellow shirt):

5)  Heather Rojo had the most creative costume, I thought - a colonial nightcap and nightgown.  Here she is with her husband, Vincent Rojo:

One more post in this series - it's about the pinata!

Whew.  That was FUN!!!  

More later - I have lots of pictures of geneabloggers gone wild!  Heh heh.
