Discussion in 'Cleveland, OH' started by DonC, Apr 17, 2002.
I wish I'd thought of this sooner, but I didn't. I was thinking of emailing the Plain Dealer and seeing if we could get Sunday's meeting listed in Jedi Journal, inviting anybody that wanted to come. It's probably too late anyhow, but please vote on whether you want to extend an open invite to anybody or just keep it people who post here. Please vote early and vote often, this poll ends tomorrow.
Remember, only people who post here count towards us becaming an official Fan Force chapter, so anybody coming because of the Plain Dealer wouldn't count towards that. Unless they signed up here.
I say we invite the Jedi Journal to come profile our group, but not to open invite everyone to this meeting so that they just come to get their pictures in the paper. However, when the column is printed I suggest Jedi Journal mentions that other people can join and give them directions about how they can.
Now that REALLY sucks because I can't go, so I voted NO. Not that it really matters because I'll lose, but considering I'm ticked off about not going, it felt good to vote no...well enough of my babble go have a fun meeting without me...*sigh*
Actually, I'm kinda liking Random's idea of having a write-up in Jedi Journal about how to join, rather than an open invitiation.
Also, like I said, it's probably too late to get into the next Journal.
But of course we should try to get our group profiled as I said too. I wanna be in the paper for helping to found this thing!
I'm a little slow today (woke up Wed Italy 7:30 AM didn't get to sleep until 4 AM USA=25 hour day) so please explain what's going on in small words:
Who are the "Jedi Journal?"
What's this have to do with "The Plain Dealer?"
If they are another group of SW fans...I'd say invite them. When they come to one of our meetings, we can explain that we're part of a Force.net Fanforce. Then they can register here at Force.net (since you have to be registered with the discussion forums to be counted as part of the official attendance). It's free...so it's not like it will cost anything...and we can really grow as a Fanforce!
that would be cool to ask them. We might get in the newspaper.
Krash, Jedi Journal is a special section of the Sunday Plain Dealer paper that offers introspect into Attack Of The Clones, by dealing with plot information, Lucas' dealings with other companies for merchandising, etc. We were wondering if they could profile our group, interview us about our happenings, and get us some publicity to increase our membership. If you recall, this section was found every Sunday in the paper when TPM came out too. Remember what Mace said, "There aren't enough Jedi to protect the Republic." We need to get our numbers up!
well Krash may not be able to find the last two journals because I took them from the newspaper already. I'll show him when i get home from school.
Did Random just say "introspect?"
Yes Don, I did say "introspect." I was up until 4:00 AM last night working on a genetics paper, and I got up at 8:15 AM. I posted this after very little sleep. You'd be surprised by the stuff your mind conjures up on only a few hours of sleep...
Ah, that explains it. 'Cause, you see, according to my dictonary "introspect" isn't a word. "Introspective" and "introspection," yes, "introspect," no. Oh, well, not a big deal. I'm sure everybody got what you were saying.
I've just invited Julie Washington to our next meeting. Let's try and have a good showing, and not make me look like an idiot, ok?
Oops, to late, just kidding.
Is she coming, or you just invited her?
I just invited her.
"You'd be surprised by the stuff your mind conjures up on only a few hours of sleep..."
Try chasing the sun on a 9 hour flight across the Atlantic (my damn luggage is supposed to be delivered this afternoon). Funny thing is, I'm still functioning on Rome time! 6AM here is like noon there; and I haven't woken up at 6AM (without a herd of Banthas stomping through my room) since high school. Couldn't sleep a wink on either the flight in or out...but I'm not very tired; I'm sure that's gonna change soon!
OH YA! TRY CHASING THE SUN, PERIOD! Seriously, it's so hard.
