    OK, now that we have a board, we can start to discuss when we will have our first meeting and where we want to have it.

    I know that there is at least 4 of us interested, so we shouldn't have any problem getting the minimum 3 together for at least the first meeting.

    As hyped as I am about this, I will have to say that this weekend is out for me. I have family coming into town for Sarah's dedication at church on Sunday. If we want to try for a weeknight next week, that might be possible.

    As for locations, I think we should stick to places that are pretty easy to get to and from. Restaurants and stores/malls along 30 seem to be a decent idea.

    Also, let discuss the topics we want to cover at our first meeting. I think publicity/recruitment is a high priority.

    Weekends are pretty much the best for me. I work Monday - Thursday till around 8pm at night, so most days during the week are shot unless we're meeting someplace that has late hours.

    Publicity / recruitment / activities to build comradery / ('camaraderie') / wookie mating calls and their affect on the youth of today..

    :-D

    And the area is fine. I can get to Lancaster in 25 minutes or just about anywhere in the area in about half an hour.

    Weekends are good for me as well.

    I like the Wookie mating call topic. :D

    Actually at some point I'd like to have a costuming topic and prop meeting as well.

    Also Em and I are going to Wizard World east on the 31st. Dave and Bob are you still both coming? Anyone else interested??

    I might have problems coming the weekend of the 18th, since this is graduation at Dickinson College...

    Asyr,

    Are you graduating from Dickinson? My sis-in-law graduated from there back in '92. They were up for the reunion in October.

    Well, I say we need to give what weekends are best for us and we will go for the one that meets the needs of as many of us as possible.

    As for topics, I think we van have more than a couple at least started to be discussed at the first meeting. Again, let's make a list of topics and prioritize them and we will try our best to cover as many as we can during the first meeting and ones we don't will get higher priority at the next meeting. Remember we need three with 3 (minimum) in attendance to become official, so we will have more. I would like to try to be official before the summer is done. How about we shoot for one meeting in May and at least one in June? We can go to monthly meetings/activities after that.

    Actually, as it looks right now I will be out of town for the weekend of the 24th. I may see if we'd be back in time for one on Monday due to the holiday, but if not I guess that would leave Sunday the 1st.

    Um, it sounds like most will be coming from Lancaster or at least closest to Lancaster, so why don't we stick to that side of the river for this meeting. Are there any good places in or around Park City Mall that would provide room enough for several people and still give us some "privacy"?

    Well it depends on what the group wants to do.. We could have a picnic at Long's Park if the weather is nice. Cool Beans Cafe in Manor Shopping center is never very crowded and is pretty nice, if the weather is crappy.

    A couple of the places that we have chosen in the New Jersey FF for meeting places were:

    Barnes & Noble
    T.G.I. Friday's
    And homes & apartments...

    Plus we have chosen to go to a couple of stores for fun after the meetings....such as Toys R Us for collecting & B&N for books.

    The first sounds ok with me. I am not very sure about a place to meet since I will be very, very new to the Lancaster area at that time. As long as I have directions, I will be there. :D

    OK, then I think we are tentatively set for June 1st for our first meeting.

    How about we either the park if the weather is nice or TGIFriday's at Park City if it's rain/snow/typhoon weather? :D

    The directions for them are relatively easy, if you come down 30 either east or west, just get off at the Harrisburg Pike exit and either head toward the mall for the restaurant or away from the mall for the park and it'll be on the left side of the road.

    Ok that sounds like a plan to me.

    Can we get a rough count of who's gonna make it to the first meeting?

    Um, pre-1 o'clock is not good for me. I was thinking something more like 1:30 or 2.

    OK, so it looks like we have at least 5 members showing up Sunday:

    Rebel_Spook
    TenguJedi
    Decca_Nikye
    chld-dark AND
    LadyMischief

    We have mentioned a few topics we want to discuss:

    Publicity/Recruitment
    Activities
    Costuming & Props AND
    Um, Wookie Mating Calls... :D

    Anything else?

    As of right now, the Weather Channel is calling for cool and rainy on Sunday, so it looks like we'll be chased inside by the weather again.
