    Time for a Roll Call for the Meeting!

    Here is the info I put in the ROTS Topic. I think it is better served here. I added a few more items. First & foremost though, please respond that you will be attending & that the time & place are ok.

    It will be here faster than we know it & once we get closer, we might be in a daze with all the Star Wars Hype!! [face_hypnotized]

    2. Meeting Place? Reading @ Borders

    3. RRS: Reading Red Squadron or Reading Rogue Squadron

    4. Star Wars Role Playing? At Meetings?

    5. Play By Email or Online Board Star Wars Story Round-Robin Game?

    6. Costumes? 501st?

    So far only Steph & myself have confirmed that the Meeting in May is ok. Calling out all RRS Members to find out if the Meeting Time & Date are ok.. Everything else can come later.. 8-}

    Wesmin7, Summer, Xavier, SASmith1, DarthJacen, Red-2 , Ambush, & Jaren_Valnor.., where do you all stand? [face_thinking]

    P.S. Drop by the ?Who are you? (Personal Info We Should Know)? all you slackers, so we all get a feel for what you like before meeting in May. o_O

    I have Finals Week this Upcoming week, so I probably won?t be on the boards until at least next Thursday. Everyone have a happy Cinco De Mayo!! [face_dancing]

    Relax & have a Tequilla!! (But not too many [face_sick] )

    Count me in for the meeting, if someone'll give me a street address for the Border's so I can snag directions.

    A street address is no problem. I know it's Woodland Drive something. I'll get back to you when I look up the full address.

    Some change of plans...

    I won't be able to make it tonight, but please don't cancel in account of me. I was informed yesterday that my grandmother wanted to go out to eat/visit the cemetary to see my grandfather's resting place on Sat, but decided against it because I had to work most of the day. She changed her plans and moved it to today so I could come with. Now, I would really feel bad to turn it down after she changed it once so I could go with. I would have told you yesterday, but I didn't really have the time - just to log on, read my PMs and head out. I apologize for any inconvienence. :(

    Steph,

    Take care of your plans with your Grandmother. Far more important task than attending the Meeting.

    Don't worry, this is the first of many!! ;)

    By my count it will be Summer, Travis, & myself. I did not get a confirmation from Xavier (if you are out there & planning to come, drop a line) or anyone else.

    So, that means us four (Steph, you will be there through the 'force') will be the starting four & building blocks of RRS.. [face_thinking]

    Cool! :cool:

    So, 6:00, Borders, meet outside & then we'll grab a table about 6:15-ish? We'll go over some of the topics mentioned in the beginning of this Thread and then we can brainstorm & bullsh&%! [face_coffee] 8-}

    See you all there! [face_peace]

    Hey guys,

    Sorry to do this at the last minute, but I'm not going to be able to make it tonight. I got called in to work this afternoon and Reading, apparently, is much farther away than I thought.

    My apologies!

    Looks like a 'reschedule' is the best course of action.

    Steph, can you reach Travis?

    I'm not due to be in work until 10 & I'm in Philly right now, so if I am not going to the Meeting, I will leave later..

    I'm sure we can reschedule this for later. I think it just ended up being bad luck causing a cancelation.

    Ok. Reached all members.

    Meeting is officially rescheduled. Please don't hit the messenger [face_beatup]

    Hmmmmm. Date to reschedule... [face_thinking]

    Anybody up for a Sunday late afternoon movie & meeting on the 22nd?

    My daughter has a soccer game at 12 noon in Fleetwood.. I could meet right afterwards.. Travis suggested a afternoon movie showing of ROTS! I think that would be a great idea & then we could have a Meeting at Borders, or maybe somewhere where we can grab a bite to eat.. =P~

    Thoughts??? [face_thinking]

    Once again, I want to apologize that I couldn't make it. I just got back and I just had a busy day. As of right now, I don't think I have anything planned for next Sunday and an afternoon showing of ROTS would be great. If anything changes over the course of the week, I'll let you know. ;)

    sorry guys about not being able to make the meeting.i think more planning needs to go into where we meet and what time and the day we pick to meet.i did nt get the meeting place until sat morning maybe it just me. i check this site at least once a day sometimes there no activity for days.and meetings are not taking place for month s its understandable that people have live and are busy and that things come up that we cant control. i think that maybe we should have a contact number for each member that way we can call them and be a little more personal.also we could call members and remind them of events and up and coming meetings. just my thoughts. by the way afternoon movie sounds good jsd.

    Some Good Points, Xavier!

    Couple things though..

    We (Steph or Myself) will start a Meeting Thread each month for the Meeting. The thread will be created the month prior & have the date, time, & place for the meeting. In this Thread, members will confirm their attendence & ask any questions (directions, etc).

    For example, this Meeting Thread was created back on April 25th. When I created it, I listed the date, time, & place. From there we waited for everyone to check in with status of attendence.

    Although we had to re-schedule the Meeting, I think the process worked great! Some members had questions about time, place, directions, etc & all were answered.

    Remember, we are pretty much getting the RRS back on track, so bear with us. As for #s for contacting. That will be up to individual members. Each members will fill out what they want to release in their Profile. As we go along, I'm sure we will all have #s to contact each other.

    I am glad to know that you are still out there & interested & giving great input!

    Drop by the, "Who are you? (Personal Info We Should Know)" Thread, so everyone will get to know you a bit more.

    P.S. You can always PM Steph of myself. I try to check daily, but sometimes it may be every other day.
