Looks like July 11th is the Saturday I have off from work.
The 11th works for us as well
I think the 11th would be better
YEEEEEEEESSSSSSS!!!!...not being the most technologically advanced guy in the galaxy use your imagination to picture a smiling and wildly applauding emoticon here
Alan, I love your enthusiasm!!!
Cool! That will be a weekend Darren is off on his rotation to play guitar at church, so he won't have practice on that Saturday! That beach looks beautiful, btw. I LOVE tide pools!
Glad you appreciate my genuine but admittedly lo-tech enthusiasm
Here's a couple of really short video clips from the Firework show last year. One is one of the flyovers, and the second is one of the sky divers. There were more than this but here's just a sample. There's lots of excitement with the poeple, take a look------>
July is out for me. Moving/Unpacking! Yeah!
The 11th sounds good. I would need a ride, though...
We'll make sure you get there, Carrie!

This place is awesome! I was there a couple of weeks ago as i'm trying to get there account for work. They told me we could get like a private tour if we wanted as I told them about us.They've got Space Days coming up. I'll post a fyler later today. Great ideas indeed Stuart.
Mike, are you drinking and typing again??
You gotta ease off on the drinking, buddy.
Oooh, great suggestions Stuart! I especially like the idea of Joshua Tree. That place has so many trails and great scenery it's not even funny. It's a regular mecca for rock-climbers. That would definately have to be a winter location, though. I don't think anyone wants to fry in triple-digits.
Just saw this [link=http://www.longbeachcomiccon.com/]1st Annual Long Beach Comic Con[/link]
This would be a perfect event to get a booth if we could and do some fund raising by raffle!

Great find Stuart! This could be fun indeed. I definitely like the idea of a booth, but I would be curious as to the people who if there was an interest, if they'd actually take the drive to our events. Ofcourse if we end up with the two types of membership, maybe they'll do that...
I know there will be people from all over, so maybe this might be something to look at. I'll call them and find out about booth cost and location of it and will let the group know. If we decide that this may be something we want to do, then we do it!
The San Diego Comic Con gives fan groups tables for free. Maybe this one will, too.
When/where's the July meeting? or is it posted somewhere I'm just not seeing?
We're not having a "meeting" for July. We had discussed and agreed that there really isn't a need to have a meeting every month, just when it's something that can't be taken care of online. We do want to "meet" every month, though, for F-U-N! July is the beach trip!
Can we start a July Event thread with the details for the 11th? That way i can link it to the website/facebook tonight.
Long Beach Comic Con Update
I spoke with a guy today who will speak with a person who he works with about us and about getting some sort of table there. FYI...this could be kinda cool folks (thanks Stuart for finding this). This would give us some really great exposure and a chance to strut our stuff!
I asked - "told him" about getting a free table. I told him what we're about and he was impressed and he told me he'd get back with me a day or two, so I definitely will keep you posted on this one! This is the beginning of October. The 2nd - 4th. So if this is a go for us, get ready to make plans. Think about it, we could be part of history in the making here, as this is LB first Comic Con. They seem pretty excited when speaking with them.
I thought this WAS the event thread
I can put diections, time, etc. later today
Okay folks I want to do a recount for the 4th firework show. I'm going to get tickets tomorrow Tuesday. You can pay me when you get there. Please re-post if you're going:
Mike + Wifey
I hope you guys aren't going to be mad at me for this. I haven't commmitted yet BUT, yesterday at church they asked us all to cancel plans if we had them on the 11th of July to help with this project. We have this group CIA, Christians In Action, that meets about once a month to help out families in need. On July 11th they are helping out a widower with 11 children. I guess he just needs major, major work at their house from cleaning to repairs. They've never asked us to cancel plans before, but they said this project is just huge and they need all the help they can get. I don't mean to flake out on the first event as VP., but since it's just a fun thing and not something we're having a booth at, I kind of feel like I need to go help with my church.
Debbie, I won't be making to the beach trip, but if I were, I would say help out your church and this nice family and don't feel bad about it at all!!!!
This is more important than a trip to the beach.
I hope to see you soon!!!
