    By understanding and previous talks most "Outer Rimmers" don't drink-of course we could always give it a good try.

    Well, whatever meet it is, someone email me with enough time so I know where I'm going. Since I'm not giving anyone my mobile # (except for one person and that lucky person knows who they'll be), then no one will be able to ring me to rmind me - so EMAIL ME!

    Well Pinback's having his housewarming this Saturday. If that's too soon, then we'll probably have an Outer Rim get together at our new place when we move in. Expect it to be in a few weeks time. The new place is a lot bigger so for those who have been to our place before, it won't be so cramped.
    We could probably have a BBQ. Maybe even a little network gaming with a couple of extra PCs. It would certainly be a good opportunity to discuss some official club stuff and make some plans.

    The idea of a bbq is a good idea! Have to make sure it it a fine day though! I think we really need to sit down and talk about where the club is heading, I have some more ideas that I can discuss!

    I think discussing the club should certainly be the focus. I'd like everyone to have a say in where things go.
    And Nat, don't worry if you don't like network games. We'll provide some Ben Cousins and Brett Lee posters for you to gaze at while we play. ;)

    That's an excellent question!

    If we're gonna do it, let's do it already!

    Was talking to Grizzly last night, together we came up with a great logo concept; I'm going to draw up a rough animatic and present it at the next meet, whenever it is. Grizzly, don't tell anybody about it, let's make it a surprise!

    I figured $20 would be a reasonable annual fee, so any amount $20 or under would be fine. It will come off the membership fee when we organize it properly. I'm keeping a list of who has paid what amounts.

    Might be a bit early but what does $20 get you??

    There aren't too many of us, so $20 doesn't go far. It's $80 to register the name for the club. After that we use the money to organize events, do some fundraising etc. I thought we could make costumes to hire out, so we need to buy the materials.

    Eventually when we get big enough and have some bargaining power we could maybe organize for members to get discounts for movies, meals, etc.

    If it happens soon, we could book a whole cinema for the EP2 premier :)

    Stupid thought-but do you think you can get enough people to join that will pack a cinema?? that's 300 plus. Keeping in mind that most SW fans don't advertise who they are.

    How many people on this board are members of the official SW fan club?.

    I have a few questions to ask not sure if the forum is the right place, I'd be interested but need more info.

    That's what the meeting will be for. The more ideas we get from everyone, the better.
    Let's tentatively plan on having it on the Saturday night after next (10th Feb).

    Hey, at King's Park, we only came a hair from our goal of 50 people; with some seriously planned effort, we can put butts in at least 250 seats!

    We previewed the logo concept for Soneil at the party; his eyes bugged out! Good sign, if you ask me, he got this look on his face like "Jesus, I wasn't expecting THAT!" Of course, that's probably because it involves full frontal nudity, but I don't wanna oversell it so I won't say anymore.

    On a serious, but minor note; I think Jedi Nat has a point about gaming, that might be more of a boy activity, at least I wouldn't be surprised if a few of the ladies in our group held a similar opinion. Respectfully, I submit the following suggestion: we can divide gaming with some more female-oriented activity organized by the Princess, to be scheduled for after the close of the evening's official business; everybody wins.

    Let's all make a special effort to get in on this one; God knows I've spent $20 on far less worthy purchases, and I for one view this as more of a speculative investment. Besides, imagine the rush of knowing that you contributed to renting an entire cinema for a night, just for you and 300 of your closest friends! What other club even offers the remote possibility of such enjoyable excesses! And it wouldn't even have to stop there! I think it would be extremely cool and fun to put Perth on the entertainment/fandom map in a way the bloated establishment would never even consider, don't you?

    Well, that's my piece; I'm gonna be there, I want in on the ground floor, 'cause this thing can only go up, get bigger, stronger, better. I'll be very excited by all the possibilities in the room, and I'll look forward to seeing you all there! It's gonna be a great thing, a special thing, it's okay to get excited and idealistic, so c'mon, let it out!

    Pinback whatever you are on, I want some. That was motivational.

    I guess if election news gets to boring(That's already a given)even I would give thought about attending.
