My apologies - it has been a while since I last posted. I was involved in a car wreck in November 2017 and have since been pre-occupied with getting better.

Anyway, just to remind everyone that our 3rd Annual Doctoberfest is scheduled to take place on October 27, 2018 from 11 am to 6 pm. As usual, we will be having Doctor Who-themed Vendors, games, and competitions. Come on out for a day of Doctor Who fun!! In the next few weeks we will be announcing the different Vendors who will be joining us and the items they will be selling.

If anyone is coming from afar for the weekend and would like suggestions of nearby hotels, food, etc., please drop us a line at whona@whona.com.

And finally, please pray for good, dry weather :-D Last two years we had it hot (sunburnt!), then very cold (2 degrees above freezing!). We are praying this year it will even out and be beautiful weather ... but this is Indiana!! Razz

Cheerio!

CORRECTION:

We made a mistake! WTIU TV is coming to cover our event, and not WTIU Radio. So if you are joining us for Doctoberfest this year, be prepared to be on TV Razz
