  • Fri, 14:13: Update.... stayed in the line with 2 boards and are maybe 30 minutes from using our third tab. We take turns on break, ate bag lunch in line
  • Fri, 14:15: Have gotten our "board pins", which no longer have to be collected on the boards. 6 pin set themed to Finding Dory.
  • Fri, 17:17: We were down to our last tabs, waited in the hour and a half line, finally got to front, and the board was recently refreshed. And...
  • Fri, 17:26: ...cont. Both K and I found our last tabs had fallen off our lanyard cards. Searching around didn't turn them up, so we told the CM and left
  • Fri, 17:30: A guy we'd traded with in line gave me a tab he wasn't going to use, K went to check out the upcoming pins on display and wait on trivia.
  • Fri, 17:35: Switched to a game w a quicker line which then didn't move. Jumped to line next door, got to pick from 2 cork circle boards. Nothing good.
  • Fri, 17:38: Krissi's trivia game is on. 15 people seated facing us. It's the end of the day, hosts are having to select people to fill in for no-shows
  • Fri, 17:38: Questions in earlier round were very tough!
  • Fri, 17:45: Q1 tough, took third person to get it. Second easy, third hard--but I knew it! K got a shot at 4, no one got it correct. Not an easy game.
  • Fri, 17:55: K knew several but didn't get in time. Good game.
  • Fri, 19:39: We chatted & looked at pins with Mark, whom we met last year, then had to leave as they closed the facility. K & I headed back to Beach Club
  • Fri, 19:42: Dropped pins and Zuca bags in room, the to Crews Cup Lounge for dinner I had a great cheeseburger, K had pasta with short rib, fennel, etc.
  • Fri, 20:42: Checked out the Yacht Club shops for pins, the back to Beach Club lounge for desserts. I had 2 tiny raspberry panna cotta, glass of Merlot.
  • Fri, 21:10: Some of today's pins: pin with purchase set we could get based on $ spent in the RSP
  • Sat, 08:25: Up at 7:30, breakfast in the club lounge. Same offerings as before, I got oatmeal today.
  • Sat, 10:03: Security still set for lots of pin traders, though no dog today. Pulled those w lg bags to side area, random look at 1-2 items per person.
  • Sat, 11:28: We were walking up to the event center just after 9:30, the start time today. Joined the line for the full sized trading boards.
  • Sat, 11:29: More trading in the queue today--someone asked about the pretty "it's a small world" pins I am wearing on my bling lanyard today.
  • Sat, 11:31: First board pull is nothing much--board was pretty old. Did grab another of the new lattice flag pins, K wants the set.
  • Sat, 11:34: Stayed out of line to do a big trade based on the small world pins--K ended up taking the lead as she wanted more of the other woman's pins.
  • Sat, 11:41: Big trade ended up w 4 people, 17+ pins on each side. Turns out we were trading with the AllEars pin blogger--nice to help her w a set.
