More Updates ~ David Archuleta Lands in Arizona Soon!
Posted by djafan on Wednesday, September 7, 2011
For the Gilbert, AZ event on September 17, SweetonDA will be accepting letters, cards, donation envelopes and gifts for David. Please keep packages small and no larger than a shirt box or large packing envelope. To get her mailing address, email her at
Two bouquets for sure will be purchased…one from the fans who could not attend and one from those attending. If you are not attending and would like to contribute to flowers, contact SweetonDA at her email above. Indicate that you would like the donation to go for flowers. For the other bouquet, those attending will be shaken down on the spot. We are only talking 1 to 5 dollars. See links for florists in the town of Gilbert in the thread below if you are interested in making your own purchase. Bouquets should be brought to venue and hopefully we can get them to him after his set, along with the cards, gifts, etc; sent to SweetonDA or brought by those attending. One large bag should do it. SandyBeaches is bringing a Canadian Hockey bag. I have no idea what that is but it sounds really cool…and manly. Bringing her comment from thread posted 9/6/11 here: “Tonight I went shopping with my husband and we found the “Sports Bag” to fill with cards and whatever else that we have for David. It can be used for sports or for travel. You can carry it in different ways and there are hidden wheels for the airport! Let’s fill it!” ♥♥♥
They have all been mailed. If you are going, you can get with Djafan by her real name at the Legado Hotel Friday night or at the venue before they are gone. She has to turn the remainder in to Barbara Stowell Saturday morning to be sold at the gate to the general public.
SandyBeaches has generously purchased uber-awesome silicone bracelets for gifting to everyone going to the event! Anyone who has a wristband will receive a bracelet, shown below. Thank you SandyBeaches! Muwaah! A truer statement could not be worn. She has ordered a nice variety of sizes too, not just one size fits all. If you are not going, send her one American dollah to cover Canadian postage which you can not buy here. To get her address, email her at email@example.com Be sure to tell her what size you want: 7, 71/2 or 8.
*Meet and Eat*
We need to meet up in order to give out the bracelets. We will collect donations for flowers there from anyone who wants to contribute (totally optional). If you’d rather eat elsewhere, you can just come there and get your bracelet or we will give it to you at the venue, not a problem. If you have a wristband you will get a bracelet so find SandyBeaches. If you can’t find SandyBeaches, look for Silverfox. No one will be allowed in the gates until 5:30 pm, so I hope we can spend some time shopping and enjoying the day. 🙂
So, after extensive research and using the latest in satellite imagery, “like a satellite we’re flyyyiiiyin..” have decided with a little help from my friends on Pei Wei Asian Diner. (Pronounced Pay Way.) We will meet below at 11:00 am Saturday.
Here is the link to Pei Wei with menu and prices.
Location, location, location. It’s located in the Town Square really close to the Civic Center where the Constitution Fair will be held. So folks who came by plane and are without a car, when you get to Pei Wei, you are at the venue! Like I say, you don’t have to eat there if you don’t want, but we’d like to meet and get acquainted/reacquainted before the concert. I believe on the far end about a block away is Chipolte’s Grill and there are some other restaurants in the area too.
You can see how close we will be to the venue from these satellite photos.
The above circular space could be where the concert will be held or may be some sort of heliport or landing area for a space craft. We always suspected he was not of this world. 😉
That’s all for now. Ciao!
