This stuff below is from the GH Fan Club email:
GHFCW 2019 - Let me start this off with a
clarification of rumors and just let you guys know where I stand with all this.
Every year the rumors start that this is our last fan club weekend. Well, I am
going to tell you just like I told the crowd last year at FCW.
This year we
are celebrating 44 years of GHFCW. We are the originals, we started this trend.
Now it has become all about something else. You will have to read between the
lines. That is just putting it plain and simple, and that is all I am going to
say about that.
We have people confusing us now with the GH Convention which
they moved to June. That cannot help us. One thing I always preach is, that is a
Convention and we are a small intimate group. I hope you guys know the
difference without me spelling that out.
There is a group that now takes the
actors except for the janitor all over the country, so that means you do not
have to travel out to LA anymore. Not only that they now use our slogan we are
GHFCW they are using GHFW which is very confusing to the fans. Our events are in
no way the same.
I have always said, I do this for the love of the show and
the fans. That is and has always been what is important to me. I have met some
incredible people along the way, actors, friends’ folks that have impacted my
life in a large way and maybe sometimes in ways I wish were different. But I
have loved every minute of it, and I love the people. The GH people, they are my
So bottom line is I am taking this one year at time now. Is this
our last year? It could be. I hope not but it could be. When we no longer sell
enough tickets to pay the cost of the events then yes, we will have to shut it
down. So that is up to the fans if we stay or if we go.
I understand you have
many choices, no longer are we the only game in town. But I hope that we have
built a loyal following that hangs in with us, not going to lie.
It is kind
of like living in a small town and you have the only Dollar Store in town and
then a Super Wal-Mart moves in. Where is the little man going to go? Probable
out of business. ABC has deep pockets for their conventions, the other group
well they have deep pockets also. Last year we gave over $10,000 to charity
after our event. So, there is no money left. We start over each year so to
speak. This year we will be raising money for a special charity and a cause
close to our hearts. More about that later.
We did this back in the day when
we had Super Soap Weekend and it went just fine. It actually gives everyone a
flavor they may like. I do and will always support anything ABC/GH does. Always!
So, there you have it. You guys come, we stay, you guys stay away we go home.
That is pretty simple I would say! Love to you all!
So now that is out of the way, lets get on to
more pleasant things like the GHFCW2019. July 25-29, 2016. Held in Glendale, CA
at the Embassy Suites Hotel.
Tickets are on sale for the Welcome Event
(always a fan favorite) on Thursday, July 25th and for the Main Cast Event on
Saturday, July 27th. You can get your order forms by going to our website
ghfanclub.com to download. I will also attach you a copy here for easy access.
We will have our full line up out shortly. It is going to be an incredible 5 day
back to back event weekend. Bringing back the Karaoke, Bingo with Wally is back
and just tons of other events. I hope you guys can try to make it. We love for
you to join us. If you have never been given us a try.
Hotel room block
should go up shortly and that sells out quickly so keep your eyes open for the
SID: Kristina Takes the Next Step with Shiloh
56th Anniversary to GH!
Michelle Stafford (Nina) exits GH, returns to Y&R
podcast, Steve Burton (Jason) hosted a lunch with Bradford Anderson
(Spinelli) and about 30 fans in a Glendale restaurant. Bradford said that they
were at an "undisclosed location in Glendale, CA." Burton laughed and then made
inappropriate remarks that many fans are calling racist. They are asking ABC to
fire Burton for his remarks, the same way they did Roseanne Barr when she
tweeted offensive remarks. So far, Burton has not apologized, nor addressed the
issue at all, and neither has ABC or GH. The remarks were edited out of the
podcast, but several fans, who were listening live,
saved a copy
of the remarks. Here is what Burton said: "And they're starting to serve the
food... You're gonna hear some ghetto clanks, there's the chicken and the
watermelon. I don't know what's going on here." Some fans thought he said "fried
chicken," making it worse.

for the super couple Luke Spencer and Holly Sutton. A couple of the GH cast
posted on there twitter accounts praises for Ingram. “I remember singing his
songs during sleepovers in high school,” recalled Sonya Eddy (Epiphany) on
Twitter. And Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix) posted simply: “RIP James Ingram. Such
a beautiful voice.”

post: DONNA MESSINA Donna was a beautiful soul and to many of us she was the
heart of the GH family. She did my makeup every day for the last six years but
she was so much more than that. Donna often came to our event during fan club
weekend and I know many of you had the opportunity to meet her. As a way of
celebrating her life, a fund has been set up to benefit her three sons, Nick,
Antonio and Vito. All funds go directly towards their books and

Sam And Jason Do Damage Control!
Even though Jason
extracted Kristina from the DOD house before her initiation, Shiloh remains very
much a threat - even more of one than Jason and Sam initially realized. Eager to
get the goods on the cult leader, Sam pretends to be just as appalled as Shiloh
is by Kristina’s “disappearance”. A conversation with Daisy leaves Sam shaken,
as she realizes that the loyalty pledge Kristina took may have given Shiloh
ammunition to use against her sister. Opposite this, Jason takes the cup
Kristina drank from back at the DOD house to GH to be analyzed. He turns to Liz
for help. The cup is rushed to the lab - but unfortunately for Jason, Shiloh
catches wind of this. Newly convinced that Jason kidnapped Kristina, Shiloh asks
Sam to investigate the matter. Jason and Sonny, meanwhile, learn about the
loyalty pledge from Michael, who has been filled in by ex-DOD member Willow.

on the verge of full indoctrination to Dawn of Day and its elite “circle of
trust”, much to her delight - and her loved ones’ dread. Kristina’s initiation
ceremony is scheduled to take place at the DOD house and she’s excited. Shiloh’s
lieutenant, Harmony, and Daisy help her prepare for the initiation. While
Kristina is with the women, Sam sneaks up to the DOD attic, the site of the
ceremony, and what she stumbles upon leaves her shaken. So does a conversation
she overhears between Harmoy and Shiloh, where it becomes clear to Sam that
Kristina handing over a family secret is part of the initiation requirements.
Opposite this, Sonny, Jason and Alexis are becoming increasingly desperate to
remove Kristina from Shiloh’s clutches before it’s too late. As the ceremony
approaches, Harmony kind of breaks it down for Kristina without giving all the
details. Shiloh visits Kristina beforehand to give her a pep talk and ceremonial
garb to wear, and he leads her upstairs to the attic to await the beginning of
the ritual. With their window narrowing, Sonny decides to take drastic action to

With Laura’s faith in
Kevin compromised by his decision to keep Ryan’s resurrection a secret, the
doctor’s wife struggles with whether or not to end their marriage. Laura takes
Kevin’s offer to grant her a quickie divorce under advisement. One of the issues
Laura must ponder is the lingering psychological trauma her daughter, Lulu, is
experiencing in the wake of her stabbing by Ryan. Laura encounters Alexis, who
was representing her in the divorce Ryan sought to hurry through the courts when
posing as Kevin and who would file the legitimate divorce papers, if Laura were
to give her the go-ahead. Kevin, meanwhile, finds himself in a lonely place for
more reasons than just his estrangement from Laura.
