Discussion in 'Houston, TX' started by StormMoose, May 2, 2009.
Time to get a date for this month. May 23rd is out for 501st troopers. Late night event aT SCH.
Anybody think the 30th might work?
Looks like a winner to me. Everyone else good wiith it?
The 30th looks good at this point.
I concur. 30th will be best for me.
Thumbs up on the 30th.
Ian, if you get by Third Planet before I do tell Ben about it. He said he would tell customers about us and is intrested in comming.
If we are agreed on 7pm on the 30th at Stag's Head, we could put some flyers up. I could put some up at 3rd Planet, Nan's, Cactus Music, and let some more museum folks know about it.
I recall that someone was working on a flyer, or I could put one together.
I think Eric is putting one together ... but I'm working on something myself as well so maybe between us we can come up with something.
I also was going through some of my old yahoo groups I used to go to years back and noticed I am a member of the yahoo group for this group (space city trade federation), so I figure I'll post something there about the meeting on the 30th and see if that generates more people.
30th sounds good guys.
Reminder Beer thirty Sat night. I could use a cold one.
Another thing we should discuss at the meeting is appointing/electing a representative for Houston. We don't seem to have one at the moment, and when I contacted Amidala Starkiller (the Mid-South RSA) about posting the upcoming meeting on the main FanForce page, she suggested that we make a point of discussing this at our meeting.
Is there anyone still active who has been in this role in the past? Is anyone in touch with past Houston officers?
This is not to say that I don't enjoy the friendly anarchy vibe we have going on here, but I do think that the Houston FanForce could benefit from having a designated person to get our announcements made on the TFN main page, coordinate events, greet new members, keep in contact with other local sci-fi fans groups, etc.
I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts on this, either here or at the meeting Saturday.
Ian, are you volunteering for something?
Seriously though, I think this is a good idea. We should maybe have year-long terms.
Looks like I will be late this sat to the meeting. I should be there by 7:30.
That's a good idea Ian ...
I'll be there Sat between 6:30-7:00PM
Good, productive meeting last night ... we actually did something constructive
Good meeting with y'all Saturday. Our newcomer, Ben, had a great time, and we got a lot of "bidness" taken care of.
Big thanks to Eric for his willingness to take the reins as Houston rep!
Eric is the man. Fun as always. Glad Ben made it.
