    Yeah. Gotta keep those U of M fans on their side of the line! [face_devil]

    Anyways, just got word from Fitzhume from the Ohio Garrison boards that he will be joining us on Monday :D
    So it won't be just you, your family and me, Toby. :p

    She lives in a house with 2 Star Wars nuts... ;)

    And she was all for decorating my son's room in a Star Wars theme.

    She's not a huge fan, but she's supportive of our fandom.

    Did you see that there will be EPI III fabrics starting in April? :eek:
    I"m going to buy it by the bolt for when I have little SW geeks of my own some day. :p
    I guess they are thinking of coming out with OT fabrics later in the year. :D

    I figured we'd better make sure some of the stuff from "back for good" thread made it here.

    The idea of a website has come up. I'm going to get more info from Jedi_bmack from the JKOC on what that would entail for us.

    I've also whipped up some quick business cards for when we encounter people out and about that might be interested.

    We can talk about those issues and recruiting at the meeding. Also events that are coming up.

    Any other orders of business that you can think of while we sit in the Loma's cantina?

    Definitely a good idea to bring these things up at the meeting. As I said in the other thread, I have done sites myself from free hosting sites with success. There are certain limitations involved - however, no expense.

    Lots to talk about tomorrow, huh?!

    Ok, JUST as a reference, I made a mock-up of a home page for a site, it only took 5 minutes. It's at www.blackswampsquadron.freehosting.net. That will give everyone an idea of what a site could be like, and what the limitations would be on a free server (i.e., pop up ads).

    Nice work.

    Check out the World of Warcraft guild page in my sig. That's done using a free forums/portal package that I got (and made some modifications to). It could of course be redone in a different color scheme and with different features enabled/disabled.

    We can also discuss positions that we should fill.

    Just wanted to say that I had a great time meeting you, Tobey, Mrs. Tobey, baby-Tobey-to-be, and Scott :D
    We'll have to do decide when to do this again. Hopefully before CIII. ;)

    Hmmm...a thought would be to have a "work meeting" where Scott can work on his armor and I can work on some sewing and Tobey video games? Is there something else you could work on in parallel with us? Website?

    The meeting was mostly social.
    (1) But we distributed the temporary Black Swam Squadron business cards.
    (2) We discussed the website. It would be a good idea, to give us an independent place to post and somewhere where we might get some "hits" from browser searches. But we will have to get more info on pricing--esp with only a couple of us to chip in. ;)

    I also forgot to include that Tobey will be working on finding the old Black Swam Squadron logo and then using it to make some fliers for promotion. :D

    I'm sorry I missed it. I got off work last night and crashed... I am sick as a dog. :p I am going to the docs to get some antibiotics, which I only do about once every 5 years.

    I do have 2 more friends interested in coming to the next meeting. They were asking if Black Swamp is going to go to the 12:01 show of Episode III at the big theater in Maumee. I told them I would keep them posted.

    back to bed for me... can't stop coughing :p

    It was great to meet you guys as well.

    That sounds good to me. You are welcome to my place anytime. I have several computers if you need to work on web stuff, also all the consoles with plenty of games on the big screen to play(Xbox, Gamecube, PS2), and a sewing machine if you need to use it. Just let me know what you think and we can set something up for one day. That should be fun. Later.

    Hey fitzhume! Good to see you found the place. :D

    A work days sounds interesting. I wouldn't mind helping with your armor a bit, but I'd probably be more worried about screwing something up!
