    We originally were asked to move our meeting up one week and figured we would just lump it together with open cockpit day. Wings Over the Rockies is not having open cockpit on the second Saturday this month but I figured we would still lump the meeting and open cockpit together.

    This would be a great time for anyone that hasn't 'worked' or 'trooped' at WOTR to get a taste of what it's like. Great photo op as well and we can get in free for the meeting as well.

    Please come prepared there are only vending machines available, so pack a water bottle, snacks or lunch if you think you will need it.

    Show up at 2pm if you just want to come of the meeting.

    I plan on being there for Open Cockpit and the meeting. Robert wants to attend, however it will depend on his work schedule.

    @Haikukid Open Cockpit is where Wings over the Rockies lets people climb into the cockpit of certain plans that are "open". Worked usually means helping out (not in a costume) at event and trooped is usually an organized event where you are working in costume (usually the 501st or RL do a lot them)

    Costume or not, all are welcome. Come check out the museum, and of course, the X-Wing. We need to do some cleaning on the old girl before the next round of repairs, so anyone willing to roll up their sleeves can get a chance at a one-on-one encounter with Star Wars history.

    Does this mean no non-raffle raffle this month? :confused:

    Unless someone wants to come by tonight and get the tickets. Otherwise you guys can figure out some other way of doing it. I would recommend a non-auction. :)

    Hate to do this, but I'll have to back out of this one. I'm getting my mouse droid fixed (and hopefully somewhat finished).

    I think we have some tickets in the prize tote. Guess we'll find out when we get there.

    @Grimby, what do you know about the Starfest table? Thanks for looking into it!

    Glad you took such excellent notes as I was there and missed part of it! That's what happens when you're not running the meeting...I can chit chat during the meeting. :p

    And slight correction, the front of the shirt will be R2 projecting the RMFF logo. This is what happened in the movie after Leia's hologram...a sort of screen saver.

    I submitted the Game Show/Trivia panel via the Denver Comic Con panel submission web site. Thanks to those at the meeting who volunteered to help with the panel. I put your names in and will let you know when they give us one-day passes for the panel day. Although, if you're volunteering to help with the Star Wars Experience area (or whatever it's called this year), you'll totally get a three-day pass for that.

    FYI Abigail is selling Girl Scout cookies this year so she will probably convince you to buy some. She will bring them to the February meeting if anyone is interested ;)

    RE: Starfest Fan Table

    I have been contacted by Susan in the last week with the info for signing up for panels and fan tables for this year. Typically, fan tables are required to be staffed the entire weekend during the hours the dealer room is open. I guess what we need to decide is whether we have people willing to be there both Saturday and Sunday.

    I'm willing to be there Saturday, but I'll be at the May the Fourth event at WOTR Friday and Sunday.
