    The next meeting we'll have is in June so the question would be is when
    The 5th of June is full as we should all know.
    So that means
    11 and 12
    18 and 19
    25 and 26
    As of right now I'm free any of those weekends and since its June and should be nice out we could have a meeting someplace other then the Mall.

    I concur. It would be nice to hear what everyone is saying, instead of the noisy chaos that is the Food Court.

    I'm not really sure what my schedule looks like right now I'll keep everyone posted. I also will be working more now that summer is here.

    I am busy most weekends of the month.
    I should be available on the 12th at the earliest.
    Otherwise the weekend of the 25th and 26th should work. I'm not sure about that weekend yet either.

    So, the 12th sounds the best for me. Perhaps afternoon around 3pm???

    As for changing the meeting place... I'm all for it.
    Sounds like something outdoors is hinted at. Where though?
    We did have one very short meeting outdoors once. It was too hot to continue outdoors so we moved it inside.
    So, we need to pick some place with an abundance of shade and seating in that shade.
    Sunblock and bug repellant would be good to bring too.

    Thats my input, so far.

    Yeah, however it long range forcasts don't have temps that high in June.
    There are a few parks around the city we can get too
    There's the Zoo and I'm sure I can think of a couple more places outside

    There are some nice parks in McFarland that will be open. They have shelters and large lawns and are very well maintained. It might be kinda out of the way but it's another option.

    OK, the 25th and 26th I will definitely be out of town.

    That means the only time I am available is on the 12th.

    The zoo sounds like a great idea. It's free and there are plenty of places to sit and talk.

    So, if we plan for the 12th, where exactly and what time?

    Any other weekend and you will have to have the meeting without me.

    Another option, if not too crazy, would be during the week in the evening sometime. As long as it isn't Tuesday or Thursday night. Just an idea.

    Thats another thing we could do,
    If we do the Zoo We'd have to look at when it closes I think

    The zoo is open from 9am to 5pm.
    The buildings there are open there from 10am to 4pm.

    I'm taking my girls there this weekend, weather permitting.

    If we did meet during the week, it wouldn't be at the zoo. It'd have to be somewhere else that will be open long enough to have the meeting. :D

    I get off of work around 4pm and could meet around 5pm, but I know that not everyone's schedule is like mine, so we need to figure out when everyone could meet, if during a weeknight.

    I still vote for the 12th in the afternoon or close to noon.

    I have to look at my work schedule again because after next week I will be working like a dog. Meetings might be difficult to make now...*sigh* I will check back and see though.

    So, the 12th around noon is what everyone wants?
    Did we decide on where exactly?

    Let's get this settled soon, please.

    My weekends are full for June, and if we don't get this setup, we might not have a meeting. Not that I have to be there for a meeting to take place.

    So let's have a vote.

    My vote is for the 12th around 2 or 3pm under the gazebo next to Toys R Us (East Side). I don't know if there is seating there, but we could bring our chairs like we did for the movie.

    Your turn to vote!

    well we weren't planing on meeting until 2 or 3 anyway

    That's Right. 2pm at the earliest.

    But since you can't get off from work until then, we could decide on 3PM.

    As for Thunderstorms, we could take it inside at either Toys-R-Us or Border's bookstore (think thats the one around the corner).

    Let's hear from those who plan on showing up. What time and which place if it's raining???

    Borders, Borders, Borders. I have an allergic reaction to Toys R2D2, due to the overloud music and free range sprogs. Although looking at action figures are kinda cool. I'm up for 2 or 2:30 or 3, whatever the majority wants.

    Boarders would be a better choice there are places we can set, Toys R us would have us all standing around.
    I'll likely be around there between 2-2:30 at the earliest so anytime can work

    Brent gets off from work at 2pm, so 2:30 would be the earliest. I spoke with him and said 3pm would be fine, if that's when he could show up.
    So, if we get there at 2:30, we might have to wait for him until 3pm. AND if it is raining OR too hot, he might have to look for us at Borders.

    I agree that Toys R Us has no seating. That doesn't bother me too much since I sit at work all day usually. But Borders does offer limited food and drinks while we talk too. So I like Borders for an alternative as well.

    See you there!
