Hello KISS ARMY!

My trip to the US started off with a quick visit to Myrtle Beach and that was no accident as I went there to visit the famous KISS Coffee House. A wonderful place with great staff!

Anyhow, my first M&G was in Virginia Beach;

Virginia Beach

I had done two M&G’s (Meet & Greet's) before so I felt fairly prepared for tonight, but I was still bubbling with nervous excitement like a child when I collected my ticket from the Will Call window. I had traveled from Ireland specially to see the guy’s in Virginia Beach, Charlotte and Raleigh. It was not my first time to cross the Atlantic to see them but this trip to the US was going to be extra special as it was going to be a KISS weekend for me with three M&G’s!

The M&G is very well organized and worked like clock work for all. First you meet Dean the M&G coordinator and photographer. He gives everyone an outline of how the M&G will go. Where to go, at what time etc. Then its time to line up by the ticket office, hand over a signed special e-mail (sent to all M&G attendees basically agreeing to common sense terms and conditions for the M&G), you receive your laminate, and wrist band and a set of picks (four).

FAN SUPPORTS SPECIAL OLYMPICS BENEFIT
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
KISS IS EVERYWHERE!

Greetings all!

This afternoon, I participated in the 2011 Polar Plunge, in Annapolis, MD. The event was a fundraiser to benefit the Special Olympics of Southern Maryland. Originally started 15 years ago, it began with a crowd of about 350 people. Now the success has drawn the masses of over 10,000! It was a lot of fun and pretty much just what you could imagine taking a dip in freezing waters would be like! The air temperature was about 35, I don't even want to imagine what the water temps were!

I dressed in costume as many participants do. Being the KISS fanatic that I am, had to represent the KISS Army in the classiest of style! I was Gene Simmons, stepping right off the cover of the "Dressed to Kill" album! I ended up taking pictures with some folks there. Even the Maryland state lottery team asked me to join them!

As for the plunge itself, it probably only lasted for about 15 seconds! I walked in waist deep, turned around, plugged my nose and sat down! The water pulled my wig off and I was up and out with a quickness! Even after growing up in Michigan and New York, I found a new definition of cold!

Thanks again for those who supported this effort!

Enjoy the pic!

AVA SINGS BETH
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
My six year old daughter, Ava, is a huge KISS fan and Gene Simmons fan. She was the only first grader in her school to wear her precious KISS shirt to the first day of school. For Christmas she asked Santa for tickets to a KISS concert, unfortunately Santa wasn’t able to bring concert tickets this year, but she was satisfied with other KISS merchandise.

Our school theatre was vandalized on Halloween Eve and badly burnt, to celebrate the restoration we hosted a 24 hour concert this January. Ava performed Beth wearing her Gene Simmons costume, much to the amusement of her teacher and the audience.

I have attached the video of her performance. It would make her year to know that Gene himself had seen her performance. Frankly, I’m not sure she would come down from the thrill it would produce.

Thank you so kindly,
Sarah Barber
