Hey Grannnyyy! It’s recently occured to me that we have never officially decided on GrannyyyCon details. Mary told me that we could possibly use her house as the “Nursing Home” for GrannyyyCon 2013. Mary lives in Florida where a good amount of Grannyyy already live, so I think its a pretty good location. We were thinking we could have it after Christmas. It would give a lot of us...
GrannnyyyCon2012 is now over

Q: Who’s going to be at LAX in the morning of the 24th? What times will people that will be at LAX on the 24th be there? If we’re all around the same time, we should try to take the same skybus to Genevieve. I’ll be taking the 11:00 one unless people will be around for the 12:30 one or something. - Josh @JgoldbergDFTBA A: I am going to collect emails and send a mass email out soon...
UPDATE: From Genevieve
Hello all! My dad just informed me that he is probably going to rent a hotel room for two nights. It’s about 5ish blocks from my house, easy to walk to. He figures that we can have half of the people here and half there at nights. Mostly so then people will actually have a chance to take showers after traveling and the beach day. As I’ve mentioned before, we live in an old house (from...
UPDATE: From Genevieve about Grannyyycon
FYI: My dad just requested me to cap off the attendees at the current number. It’s at 15 people plus 5 for one night. They’re getting worried that we really won’t have enough room and a few other concerns that I won’t go into. If you do not intend on going to Grannyyycon, let me know ASAP so the spot can be freed up. The last day to RSVP to my house is June 10th. I’m...
andyglover asked: Just saw the post about RSVP-ing... so, the Dazen Glover experience tour crew that includes Andy, Jb Dazen, Caleb Siep, Abby Williamson, and Laura Cuthbert would like to drop by, but I need to confirm with Laura what day we plan on being there. Just throwing that out there. <3
This is also a friendly reminder for those of you...
The last day to RSVP for GrannyyyCon is June 10th. :) That is just two weeks before GrannyyyCon.
Buy your train tickets now with discount :)
As most of you (if not all) know right after GrannyyyCon we will be taking the Amtrak train on Wednesday the 27th from the Goleta station (located approx. 5 minutes away from Genevieve’s house) to Anaheim. Genevieve was nice enough to add details for the train ride in the FAQ. “We’re going to take the 1:50PM train (784 Pacific Surfliner) from the Goleta station and it arrives in...
VidCon is next month and there is still room for 5 more people to RSVP to GrannyyyCon. If you are going, be sure to check to see if your name is on the RSVP list. If it is not, be sure to let either Kimber or Genevieve know as soon as you can! :)
dftbbrodie asked: Hey I'm trying to work out if I can afford to do GRANNYYYCon and I have a question. I know we're planning to take a charter bus TO VidCon but what about getting back to the airport in Santa Barbara? Are we planning to take a charter back as well?
I just added an RSVP list to this tumblr. It is necessary that you reserve your spot in the Nursing Home as soon as possible. Genevieve can only have 20 people staying with her during Grannyyycon, so in order to ensure it is first come first serve I created the RSVP. Details are located on that page.
Let others know about the existence of this Tumblr
Some people still don’t know of the plans that are being made in regards to rooming, Disneyland, and the Santa Barbara trip. So be sure to pass along this tumblr to fellow GRANNYYY members, please!
baxtavius asked: I have a good idea for saving money and having a great time. GRANNYYY road trip. If we could organize a few cars for different regions (Floridians, South, Midwest, New England, Canadian, Northwest) and pool money for an awesome Paper Towns-style trip, think of the awesome!
abandonedcinema asked: How much dolares will I need? Like food, hotel, and other expenses?

“So the obvious “VIDCON” hotels are the Anaheim Hilton and the Anaheim Marriott, but there are cheaper ones also in walking distance to the Convention center. Can we decide which hotel will be the official Grannyyy Hotel so we can move on with the plans?” Mary said that her mom had Marriott rewards and might let us use them. So far that is all we know. We should know for...
Day at the Beach/ Pre VidCon Slumber Party
Currently, there many in GRANNYYY who are frequent Google+ Hangout users that are planning a pre-VidCon slumber party at Genevieve’s house, now known as ‘The Nursing Home.’ (Ha. GRANNYYY. Get it?) We are going to be flying into Santa Barbara Airport (SBA) which is located approximately 5 minutes away from “The Nursing Home.” We plan to walk from the airport to the...
