    Hey Everybody our 40th meeting. That's cause for a big celebration - or something.
    We'll be talking about the upcoming I-CON convention and much fun stuff for the coming year.
    The start time is 12 Noon. --Billy

    Why did we move the meeting to 12 Noon. I can't remember? --Billy

    Because some are always late, and so the meeting never starts until 12 anyway. Then we have a bunch of us sitting around wasting time. We thought we'd try the 12 start time, to see if things stay on schedule better. I have my doubts, of course. But it's worth trying anyway!

    Billy, it was hard for people to get up that early
    after partying hard all Saturday Night. LOL!!!
    UP ALL NIGHT. SLEEP ALL DAY
    I'll be there probably about 11:30am.
    So I can eat before it starts. BuRp!
    BTW, I went and saw Narnia w/ my Mom yesterday.
    See wanted to see it. It was good. But during the
    previews there was a moive called Bench Warmers
    (baseball),but Star Wars all around in the backround.
    It stars Rob Schneider & David Spade.

    I'm not going to be able to make this one. I have way too many errands and stuff to take care of this weekend. Talk to you guys on the flip side.

    We meet in the food court at Broadway Mall in Hicksville every second sunday of the month at 12 Noon. Try to stop by. We have a bunch of extra seats. --Billy

    What's the plan if the blizzard is really bad Saturday night? Currently they're predicting 6-8 inches snowing well into Sunday morning. Would the meeting get postponed, cancelled or go ahead?

    Clive, I left messages with Ark & Billy about this.
    Oh great tomorrow I'll digging out on my B-day.
    yuk!! A NY D.O.T. guy came into work today so I asked
    him what we are getting. He was told 7 inches. The
    storm isnt going to end til after 1 to 2pm on Sunday.
    Plus winds at 50 MPH. Meaning snow banks. I've watched
    Fox, ABC, WB, UPN,The Weather Channel reports. As of
    11pm. They all say the Island is gonna get the
    worst of it (6-12 inches).

    Doesn't the Island always get the worst?

    And Happy Birthday, KAOS!

    As for the meeting, well, hard though it is to believe, I don't think this has ever come up before. The most logical thing to do would be to postpone it till next week... except both Ark and I will be away then.

    Stupid weather.

    Triss, thank you for the B-day wishes.:D
    Now this morning on the Weather Channel
    said the eastern LI could get up to 15 inches. :eek:
    YUK!! So are we still planing on having it on
    tomorrow? [face_thinking] Plus also it might a long time to dig
    out Sunday morning too. Or are we gonna wait til
    Sunday morning to decide?I'll keep check back here
    should we vote on it?[face_worried]

    I'll be away next weekend too. I dunno, man, it's 1:30pm and it's bright and sunny outside. Wouldn't even guess it was going to snow in a few hours. I'd say let's wait and see, and if it really is coming down hard well into tonight, maybe Billy/Triss or Abhay can send out a group email to let everyone know if we cancel. Most of us have each other's phone #s too.

    That means you peeps would need to keep an eye on your email by tomorrow morning.

    I wish we wouldn't have to cancel, this is an important meeting--it's the month before I-CON. Maybe, if it absolutely must be cancelled, how about the club having a group chat online or swapping emails through the list? That way stuff can still be talked about. (In that case I probably wouldn't be able to join, I have no home internet, I'm at the local library right now.)

    Here is an idea: How about a delayed start meeting. We have our meeting at 6 PM or so on Sunday. The roads should be plowed and cleared by then.
    Cause the next few weekends are not open for alot of us.
    Because its the meeting before I-CON, it is important. We could always schedule it this week on a weeknight like Tuesday or Wednesday.
    I will make sure we post somekind of update before Midnight tonight.
    Please try to check your email and these boards before you leave in the morning for the meeting, in case there is a last minute change of plans. --Billy

    That sounds good--a delayed meeting, that is. Trouble is, I won't have internet access in the morning. If you're awake at midnight, you could leave me a voicemail on my phone, and I'll check it when I get up.

    Okay I will call you if it comes down to a morning decision (if its cancelled I wont be up in the morning). But check your email at midnight and we will try and nail down the decision then.
    Anyone else have an opinion about a delayed meeting at like 6 PM ? --Billy

    Moriah brought up a good point. The mall closes at 6 PM, so we could do it either at 4 PM or do a dinner meeting someplace else. (They have a Ruby Tuesdays at the Mall)
    It sounds like we will only have 8-10 people so a restaurant like Boulder Creek could accomodate us. Also on a Sunday night after a snow storm it shouldnt be crowded.

    This might be our best option - some people might not be able to make a weekday meeting.

    We should try and nail down the decision by midnight. By then we will have an idea how heavy the snow fall will be.

    Any thoughts? --BIlly

    Decision has been made (because otherwise we'll be deciding all night!) - meeting will be at 4 PM, still at Broadway Mall. Mall closes at 6, then we'll all go out for eats somewhere close.

    It's a well conceived plan, however there is great risk. It's possible our cars may not be able to penetrate the snow at all, in which case we'll probably just cancel. But we'll see what happens in the morning!

    You'll need it to direct traffic .MOVE ALONG.[face_mischief] I concerned about everyones safety.
    You sure you want to go on with the meeting? I wont be there cuz of work, but if its as bad as they say we might not open.

    i won't be able to make this one guys. I don't think I should take the bike out with a foot of snow on the ground and my car hasn't been starting lately. I WAS going to take a look at it today.

    Unless we can come up with about 10 Taun tauns for us it looks like the metting is cancelled.
    A few of us including the CR, think we should cancel for the day. I'm waiting to hear from the President to confirm a cancellation.

    Maybe we can reschedule it as an evening dinner meeting on Wednesday?

    I'll be back with an official word. --Billy
