In all of my wisdom, I've concluded that as of now, the best date to hold our first meeting will be: Saturday, August 24. If this date is not good for a fair majority of this up-and-coming fan force then let tell us in this thread ASAP. _____________________________________________ The planned meet will go as follows (unless we can decide on something different): Meet at the new Barnes and Noble. Easy. We all meet there. nice, calm public place. We meet each other. Introduce ourselves. Get to know a bit. Easy, fun, no pressure. Go get a small lunch. We all trapse over to a diner or someplace that can hold a number of people. We get a lunch, talk, joke, make friends. Have a blast. Go catch a movie. Decide on what to see, and see it. Get some dinner. Afterwards we all get some dinner and laugh and joke, reminesce, and plan the next meet. By then everyone knows everyone else. We know each other's interest. We're left with good times and full guts. Depart Happy trails to you. Until we meet again! If you have any other ideas that you'd rather do, then post it here ASAP. _____________________________________________ Once again, unless we are notified, this is the date and plan that as of now works best. Contact me at: email@example.com (I don't post my main e-mail in public so as to avoid spam from companies etc ). Or just PM me. Unless I'm extraordinarily busy I check both at least once a day. Thanks!
