    In order to remain a FanForce chapter, we need to meet at least 3 times a year, with 3 members at each meeting/activity. How often would you like Provo FanForce to have get togethers? Or, to put it another way, how often do you think it's feasible for the Provo FanForce to have get togethers?

    (Also, these polls are always a little tricky with how the option you're voting for is placed below the button to click. That almost gets me every time. Don't ask.) ;)

    Please feel free to discuss this below. :)

    How many people are in the fanforce? Well, I mean people that participate either on the boards or by going to activities?

    I know I haven't been the best at participating in activities. I used to when I first signed up back before my mission like 5-6 years ago. But I think I have actually only been to one since being home from my mission (cant even remember when the activity was anymore). There were times when I have been away, almost not even remembering the boards exist [face_blush]

    I don't know how you all feel though. To me it seems that all of the active members are already good friends and are either roommates or hang out with each other a lot (at least that's what i get from reading post in the quote section and stuff). Maybe since you all hang out these activities aren't too big of a deal? I just ask about these activities because I would like to be able to make it to one sometime to meet other members of the group, you know put a face to the names that way i know who I am talking to on here. That and it is always good to meet fellow fans. I think the only ones I have met are Mia and Ish, and that is if you both even remember me :)

    The most regular members are MiaTieska, Kateydidnt and myself. We have been at pretty much all of the formal meetings for the last years. I think that expecting it every other month and rotating the responsibility of choosing the activity would work. That way, the CR has the responsibility of leading, but not as much creative pressure. It would also encourage more participation among the people who have, say, been there once in a while.

    Sorry, guys, been sick this weekend. Bleh.

    Those of us Ish listed hang out more now, sure, because we've been to activities and gotten to know each other better. ;) That's all. But I do try to make sure there is an official activity (at least when things aren't totally insane).

    And yeah, JediKnight, I remember you. :) I don't remember your real name, lol, but I remember you. :)

    Ok. That's what I thought. You all hang out more now because you are friends after having met and had activities together. Thats why the activities are good to make friends and have fun together. But we are all very busy and I understand that it is hard to plan things sometimes when it is so busy. It could make it easier rather than one person trying to plan all the activities if we took turns or something like that. This month we should have a little Christmas party or something....after finals that is.

    Something we did here in the Springfield, MO area was to have a monthly meeting at the local Library center where we could sit and chat about cons, family, star wars (of course) work on costumes and other projects, watch a movie. it was very successful for us.

    Hmm. Yeah, we could possibly focus less on stressing what to "do" for an activity, cause we just end up chatting for hours afterward anyway... And just have something lower-key like that. Thanks for the input! :)

    Yeah, just getting together to chat would be cool, doesn't have to be anything big or an activity. Just good to make new friends and have people to hang out with (and cool we have some similar interests ;))
