    Well so far it seems like we should have the meeting in Anne Arundle/Montgomery counties area. Anyone live in that area and know of a good meeting place?

    Hmm, how about a place like a book store or something? The Borders at White Flint? I'm familiar with Mont. County more than I am with Baltimore as I lived there for six years.

    Idea: I will be going to the Teacher Thursday at The Maryland Science Center's Spacelink. I am going to a presentation on "Planets Outside The Solar System" you know like Ryloth, Ithor, etc. [face_laugh]
    My meeting is on Thursday, January 20 at 6:30 p. m. but I can probably leave right after school and have a quick supper with y'all at a food court somewhere in the Inner Harbour and then check out the Barnes 'N Noble afterwards. I usually park in the Rusty Scupper parking lot and walk down and around. Maybe we can all meet somewhere like the Barnes and Noble. BTW, we all had our very first meeting in the White Flint mall over three years ago and I have pictures to prove it!

    EDIT: I baaaad! It was [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Maryland/b10093/5248303/p1]White March Mall[/link] BTW, how very sad and maudilin this group has become after our wild and crazy times at our first meeting. And who can ever forget our [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Maryland/b10093/5685935/?30]field trip to Victoria's Secret[/link]? I got some nice duds there that I always wear for Valintine's day.

    I don't have a problem with either location. I know that White Flint would be better for you saerah.

    Here is the link to [link=http://msc.convio.net/site/MessageViewer?em_id=2481.0&dlv_id=5021&JServSessionIdr012=rbfqp0vqk3.app7a] Teacher Thursday [/link].

    Please PM me if you are going and we can decide on a place to meet. The White Flint Mall thingy is ok with me, but will depend on date and time, however, I have no clue where White Flint Mall is. I don't even know what state it is in. :confused: I will be going to Teacher Thursday regardless of whether we meet or not. Idea: Maybe you can go to Dino Links and we can exchange ideas! It would be nice to see j'all there and I don't think Flavio would be upset if you came and were not a teacher. I can try and sneak you in. The observatory will be open to the public anyway if it is clear. Hope to see some of you then.

    Curses...I've got a class 7-8:15 at AACC...so I wouldn't be able to get there 'til at least 9ish. Guess I'll have to try to make it to something else.

    That is why we gave up on having meetings. Saerah, this is why we never saw you before. Most of the members are in Baltimore, that is why we met there. We only changed the name to Maryland to include more area and we were meeting some in Annapolis as well. I don't even live in Maryland, but I am equal distant to both Washington, DC and Baltimore at 90 minutes each. Most of the rest of the Maryland fan force gave up and joined Galactic Senate in Washington, DC because we never do anything. Mogook can not do everything alone. He needs help organizing stuff and in order to do that, we have to meet in Maryland, because that is where everyone is. Saerah, have you checked into Pennslyvania groups that might be closer? Why is it your Western Maryland Group never got incorporated into your own fan force? :confused: I only suggested tomorrow at the Inner Harbour because we held our second meeting there when we needed three meetings to become incorporated and I am going there on business for Teacher Thursday already. No one has contacted me about meeting there, so I guess, we will not go. The offer to come and meet in the planetarium here is still open, except, you will need to notify me with a couple of weeks to get it clear on my calendar. You can always meet unofficially to do something fun like laser tag and/or movie watching, game playing etc. at someone's house.

    The Farpoint conference sounds like a great idea. The 501st. were at the planetarium for my open house in September. Too bad other folks were not. :( They were alot of fun and if we met at [link=http://theforce.net/latestnews/story/501st_Mara_Jade_at_Farpoint_Sci_Fi_Con_in_Hunt_Valley_MD_88896.asp]Farpoint [/link], there would be other things to do, so it might be work the drive. Also [link=http://www.thechromatics.com/]The Chromatics[/link] will be there and they are great! :)

    Isbeth, I do live in Maryland. So if we're to meet in Maryland, it's Maryland that I live in. Pittsburgh is the same distance as Baltimore is. I may be moving to Cumberland within hte next 6 months, so that would make Baltimore even closer, but still a 2-hour drive.

    I don't have a Western MD group?

    Well, I'm going to be at Farpoint next month so if anyone goes just let me know. I'm probably gonna be going on Saturday. Other than that I'm pretty busy with work, watching my son, and spending any other time than that with my wife. I don't have to much time anymore but I will definately be attending conventions. That is the only thing my wife pretty much lets me do since I barely spend time with her.
