    Our October 8 meeting will be held in the Idaho Falls Public Library at 7:00 pm.

    We need to put together ideas for our meeting agenda. Erin.....you and I already listed a few things, perhaps you could post them here?!?! (Thanks!)

    Also, does anyone have any ideas for an activity for that night?

    The club will be serving nachos for snacks!! Please remember, as always, to bring your own beverage.

    Why yes of course I can post what we talked about Laura.


    WE need to talk about:
    Bowling for Kids's Sake
    The Halloween Party
    The Toy Drive
    The Christmas/New Years Party

    WE also need to start talking about
    A name and logo change
    A website
    Newsletter
    t-shirts
    Electing a new officer or officers
    and talk about changing the by-laws

    Fun fun fun.

    Perhaps we could also discuss Boo at the Zoo, since that isn't necessarily the same thing as our Halloween party.

    Erin - please add this to the agenda:

    I need to briefly discuss the new library policies regarding renting rooms. The group should be aware of their new procedure and how it might affect us (especially if they charge us for a key deposit).

    A couple of other things to add is a quick discussion on what would be fun activities to have after meetings and it might be good to talk about Celebration III, just to make sure everyone is on the same page as far as that goes. Plus the usual SW news and all that good stuff.

    Today I had lunch with a former co-worker from EITC, and she told me about a fund-raiser her new employer, the American Cancer Society, puts on each summer.

    It's called "Relay for Life," and you walk to raise money for survivors of cancer and to support further cancer research. They hold it each summer.

    It's like Bowl-for-Kids'-Sake in that you get pledges, and that you participate as a group. They hold it at Idaho Falls High School, in the football stadium. You pitch a tent in the infield and CAMP-OUT overnight! Your group walks a certain time, but other than that, you hang out and have a good time.

    Sounds like an alternative charity event for us. Wendy said she could come to one of our meetings and show us a video and explain it better to us if we're interested.

    Anyway.....I just want to mention this at the meeting. We can talk more about it later.

    I want to do fun stuff with the club after meetings. And here is my first idea. I will do it alone if need be, but if I could get ALL of you...

    The corn mazes.
    At night.
    Everyone with a bright lightsaber. I have enough for all. Green shows up FANTASTICally well at night. Used the green saber to chase a grim reaper off of a rickity bridge a while back. ANd he had an axe. Ha. I whooped him.

    And I want to do this THIS weekend. After the meeting when it is all dark and creepy (and before it gets too cold in late OCT).

    BArry, that sounds awesome. Just post when they are open, and how much it costs. I would love to do this.

    The cornmaze by the Riot ZOne is open all night, and is about $8 a person. That is only one that I have seen advertsied so far. Some years there is another one by the lewisview highway, and that one has scary poeple who scare you in maskes at night, but I havent seen it advertised yet. Ill check fridays paper.

    But anywho, my lightsaber is itching me. Have to take it out for a spin in the real world.

    Well, Erin & I have come up with an awesome craft project for after the meeting. [face_idea] We plan on decopaging (sp?) pictures of our favorite Star Wars characters on the back of clear dinner plates. (You don't have to do a Star Wars theme - anything goes! Erin's doing a U2 plate.)

    When your plate is finished, you can hang it on the wall, display it on your coffee table, or even eat off of it! (Just be careful when you wash it.)

    The club will provide the plates and the glue. You just need to bring old magazines that you're willing to tear up. Other print sources, such as books, newspaper, or comic books, will also work.

    This should be fun!
