    While chomping down on my lunch, I've been brainstorming some fun stuff we can do in 2009. We're not having a meeting in December, so I figure we can get a jump on what things may come down the pike.

    Given people's limited time due family/work, commitments to other creative endeavors, etc., I've come up with just a few. Feel free to offer yours.[:D]

    Winter/Spring
    - MarsCon in Jan.
    - Wattos Swap Shop in Feb.
    - Tidewater Tides Baseball Game in March or a charitable event e.g. Save the Bay
    - After meeting(s), Cantina Night @ 5 Guys, AJ Gators, Frankie's
    - of course, minis games

    Summer
    - After meetings, Cantina Night @ ShoreBreak
    - Picnic (somewhere?)
    - minis

    Fall
    - Masquerade in Ghent
    - Virginia Zoo Boo
    - Holiday Dinner
    - After meetings, Cantina Nights/minis games

    If the summer picnic doesn't pan out, we can also consider doing a Star Wars themed Pizza Party at a Place like Fuddruckers; i think our kids would dig that.

    May2nd, 2009 is Free Comic Book day. The major comic book publishers will distribute a free comic book for the event. The goal is to have comic book fans visit their local comic book vendors.

    I seriously want to do Spiderman at a small vendor in Phoebus (Hampton). I know that other character fan clubs are crafting similar appearances throughout the nation.

    It's also the day after the national release of the new Wolverine movie.

    Nels had brought up a great idea of having an event at Jillians.

    What I had in mind was perhaps a Star Wars themed party for our members' kids. Something along the lines of what we had for Elijah's B-day at the bike shop about 2 years ago. Some of us dressing up if we have costumes (optional of course).

    Perhaps it would be good idea for June/July, something indoors, obviously?

    what do ya'll think?
