    How are the elections going to be handled since this will be online, and how will the nominations be handled, self nominate or other?

    Sarah I think we should plan on using the RL chat as discussed off-site. Even if the the hosting has not expired on 1/17 I think we should shut it down as soon as I archive it.

    Discussion:
    THE FUTURE OF HOTA - Bradley, Zazrus & Stimpy have been working to copy the database from www.heartofthealliance.com over to Bradley's website StarWarsKC.com in lock-down/viewing mode only for the time being for FREE. - Thanks Bradley. Also, thank you to Stimpy and Z for all the work you did to host the site and keep it running in the past. There are a lot of grateful people in this group. I'm personally, so glad that everything will be backed up for reference and posterity for the group. You have my sincere gratitude, all of you.

    For now, Heart of the Alliance will be organized, run and planned on here (theforce.net) and also on FaceBook w/ the user group Heart of the Alliance, at least for the immediate future.

    CHAPTER REPRESENTATIVE - John Garcia/KCJedi nominated, seconded and accepted. He will remain as Chapter Rep for HotA for 1 year or until he decides to resign effective immediately. I will PM he RSA with his information ASAP.

    PLANET COMICON PLANNING - It was a consensus that Tantive4(Doug) will contact Darryl Woods regarding a table at PCC. Darryl has been a member of Hota for a long time and is a LucasFilm recognized artist who draws Star Wars caricatures for children. Last year Darryl supported HotA w/ a table at PCC, this year the members decided to donate funds in the amount of $55 (or ONE 4ft table) space at PCC for Darryl this year, with the hopes that he will allow us to advertise and recruit for the KC FanForce group there w/ some flyers. Please contact Doug at tantive4@hotmail.com to make arrangements for monetary donations for this venture.

    REGROUPING UNDER A NEW LABEL - it has been suggested that the group get a re-vamp with a new image under a new name/logo. A discussion thread for this will be posted on TF.n regarding this matter to be discussed at the next meeting.

    REACH OUT AND TOUCH SOMEONE PROGRAM - please contact a friend who is a Star Wars fan regarding KC FanForce and point them to our site here or have them friend us on FB please, we need to get the word out that we're here and we're staying! Recruit! Recruit! Recruit!

    Celebration V - who's going and who's not, who's staying where, carpooling, etc. etc.

    thank you.

    questions or concerns, please post below.

    Not sure where to put this, but it did not need it's own thread...

    Finally got a hold of Darryl today. He has accepted our offer of a "table" donation for PCC, and has no problems if we "flyer" his table or sit near him from time to time (as we desire)

    He is very happy the KCFF has lived on, and he is very thankful for our gift to him!

    That said...

    I have gotten 0 emails for fund delivery. I will see KCJedi on Friday, but the rest of you who have pledged (you know who you are) really need to email me... my plan is to meet up and give him the funds by mid-next week. (7 days from now)

    Thanks!

    I would perfer to do local pick ups. If it goes to paypal it takes me a business week to transfer it to a checking account, then I have to write a out of state check to Darryl... cash is so much nicer...

    I've not set up anything with anyone but John at this point. we still got a week :)

    Thx

    We've been passing around what the baby had last week all this week, so Sarah's plan to get it to you after work some night fell through... We'll see about meeting up with you this weekend maybe, especially if you're going to be at work?

    OK Gang... anyone have a contact info on "Gary" is he on the boards here?? I lack his funds he pledged for Darryl, and that's it.

    Since we promised it to Darryl already, we either need Gary to follow through or someone else fill his $10 pledge... (10 members, $1 each? who knows...whatever works I say!)

    MY HOPE was to get D his money this week, so please people, let's get this "finished"!

    I don't know Gary, but I would be willing to take his place and have 2 options for you:
    1. Fly to Alexandria, Egypt and I'll give you $10 in person.
    2. I can get a hold of my parents in KC and you can pick up the money from them.
    I'll leave the choice to you. :) Given the 8 hour time difference, I can email them now and they should have it for you sometime Thursday.

    I missed this post. I think I talked to him the day you posted this, and he told me he'd be a little while longer on the money he owed me (for something else, not this) because he had to pay his kid's college tuition ;) I suppose I could get you his money since I'm expecting to see him and get some in a couple weeks anyway. Let me know.
