First off, I'd like to extend a formal welcome to all the new names on the boards since the premiere... Thumpernicus Darth_Chapus LadyLuck Mase_Wahoo GeekerBeeker ES-CHA-PHA-LAS Also a welcome and an invitation to all those who might be lurking, and haven't yet had the courage to post We know you're there, and we want to meet you. I'd like to remind everyone who hasn't been to a meeting yet, and to those who are just joining us, that the Fan Force is about "getting fans together and helping them meet and interact with other fans in their 'physical community" which goes beyond these message boards, it's good that you've made it this far, but the next step, and the real purpose for a Fan Force is to get together and hang out. If for some reason you cannot make it to regular monthly meetings, by all means LET US KNOW, so that we can try and work around your schedule, it's important to us that you can all make it to the meetings. The management is working hard to insure this by working closely with the members and looking at everyone's schedules, the more we know, the better we can plan meetings. Also, attendance to meetings will soon be required for "active membership" (discussed in council meeting minutes thread) which grants special priveleges. So please, come to the next meeting if it's possible, you won't be disappointed... If you had fun talking to us at the premeire, you'll love our meetings, we're a fun, energetic and outgoing group who love to meet new fans. It's our goal to see as many of you make it to the meeting as possible, need a ride? ask! Need to be an hour or two late? tell us! Need us to meet in a different area? Suggest one! It's up to you, but please remember, that this is what the Fan Force is about. You will love it, I promise... see you on Friday!
