This is it, TPAers! If you can believe it, this is THE final Summer Nights gathering for 2013 before we switch into Autumn mode!
On Sunday, August 25th at 7:00 P.M., we will gather once again on the patio outside of Trader Sam’s and Tangaroa Terrace at the Disneyland Hotel to mix and mingle – fans, haunters, and industry pros all under the Tiki torches with tropical drinks in hand!
We will look back at ScareLA and you’ll have your chance to hang and chat with many of the people involved with the highly-successful show one-on-one, including both Rick and Johanna, as well as other people behind the event to offer feedback!
On a more solemn note, we are still deeply shaken by the loss of a longtime friend; Mark “Sumo” Sagato, who was a veteran monster at Knott’s Halloween Haunt and one of the fantastic staff members of ScareLA. Mark was taken from all on August 11th after suffering a heart attack; the community is reeling and deeply affected by his untimely death. We are mourning together as a community, and during the TPA meet, we will be taking up a group donation collection to give to his family to help cover the costs of his memorial service and associated costs during this impossibly difficult time. If you cannot afford to give, there will be NO pressure to do so. If you can however, we ask that you give what you can to help Mark’s loved ones in this time of extreme pain and need.
Parking is FREE for the first 3 hours in the Downtown Disney parking lot; if you park in the Pinocchio Lot next to the Mickey and Friends parking structure, parking is FREE no matter how long you stay at Sam’s!
The first 30 people who do not already have a Summer Nights at Sam’s button will get one free while supplies last!
This is it! The final TPA summer mixer of 2013! We encourage EVERYONE to come out – all ages are welcome, and it’s fantastic to see new people show up! In case you’re wondering what the past TPA gatherings have been like, here’s a link to last month’s event recap!
We hope to see everyone very soon, and look forward to discussing ScareLA with each of you, as well as showing the love for our fallen friend, Mark Sagato! It’s party time, and heart-felt love and support time as fans, as TPAers, as a community.
If you haven’t already done so, please RSVP on our Facebook event page so that we have an idea of how many of you are coming! See you soon!
