    When's a good time? I would guess the weekend or so after Easter.. since Fridays seem to work the best, how about Friday the 13.

    Well Actually for several of us April 13 to the 15 might be tough since Filmcon 8 is going on that weekend.

    Its a film convention that teaches Film Students about film making
    it also has fan panels, in the past it covered SciFi including Star Wars and Firefly among others. This one we're doing some supernatural panels and since the spring is with Oddcon we can look around there too

    I don't know how much I am going to be at Filmcon this time around, as I also have tickets for the Wisconsin Film Fest. I am going to be there on Friday until 4 or so. Just FYI.

    Last time, we tried to get everyone together after the closing ceremony (the end of FilmCon), since lunches really limit us on time. However, the location of the meeting place seemed to be elusive to some, and not everyone made it.

    I'd still vote for directly after FilmCon on Sunday (afternoon), and we would need to select a well known place so no one gets lost, even if separated from the herd.

    Anyway, that's my idea for this.

    sounds good to me, just a question of where I would think somewhere where we could grab a bite to eat but at the same time where its not to crowded and loud

    That sounds good to me, I dont mind where we go to eat. The only places I can think of that are over there is Denny's, Noodles, or we could try going to the place we tried to eat at last meeting *cant think of the name*.

    TGIFridays, that might be a little loud though on a Sunday afternoon I don't know. The one on the east side though is always packed

    Actually, we're not arguing anything. It's making a correction so if anyone else decided to join, they knew the correct location.

    I suppose I will take command here since no one will say anything definitive.

    Meeting Announcement:

    Sunday, April 15th
    Time: Yet unknown. Someone say when the FilmCon is over.

    Place: TGIFridays, Greenway Station (take the beltline west/north from Mineral Point Road about a mile, two exits down, turn left under the beltline, Greenway station is to the right past the McDonald's)

    Note: Since we are going in to a restaurant, I do not know the policies for those who just want to sit without eating. If they do not allow casual sitting, We can find some place else, like the bookstore as usual.

    This seems to be the majority time. Now someone tell us when FilmCon is over so we can set a time.

    The Last event is at 1:30 knowing Eric that will likely run longer then he plans so I might say 3:00pm roughly.
    Maybe someone should get some phone numbers so someone could call the people who didn't come to let them know when its over so they could head to the location.

    I'd say we should meet at around 4. As for the policies about sitting and not eating most restaurant's that I've been in are ok as long as some people are ordering food. I dont think it should be a problem if some people choose not to eat.
