    I guess the president forgot. Basicly his remarks would be that the meeting is cancelled for a 4 Pm or a 6 PM start.
    If we determined the roads are clear enough by 6 PM we may go out for dinner near the Broadway Mall at 8 PM, not an official meeting or anything. That also depends on if the restaurants are open.
    We are going to look to reschedule the official meeting for the weekend or near the weekend of Comic Con.
    That period of time seems to be the best for a majority of us to attend. --Billy

    I didn't forget. I was waiting until I had something definitive to post about restaurants. Every restaurant that's open now (Boulder Creek, Ruby Tuesday's, Chili's Westbury) intends to remain open until their usual closing time (either 10 or 11 PM). However, every single one advised calling before we head over. I think chances are very good that finding an open restaurant won't be a problem.

    Anyway, the plan as discussed at noon was to make a decision at 3 PM, which is about 45 minutes from now. If enough people are available and willing to brave the snow, we'll have a real meeting over dinner. Otherwise, we will do a dinner social event and try to reschedule the meeting as Billy said.

    I'll post more sometime after 3 PM -- give me a bit of time talk to everyone on the phone (including the restaurants).

    It seems like we're not going to have enough people for a meeting tonight. However, some of us still want to get together for a dinner social.

    I propose Chili's in Westbury at 7:30 PM.

    We should chat again at about 5:30 to make sure everything is going smoothly, but I don't expect any major changes to the plans.

    Billy did lots of digging, and we still don't have the cars free. Our neighborhood is strange, though. We'll get a bunch of snow up here, and then once you get down the hill there's a lot less. My old job never used to believe me when I would tell them I was still snowed in.

    You realize, of course, that a difference of only one week would have meant... DonnerCon II!

    Although, it could snow again next week... [face_thinking]

    We haven't picked a date for the meeting, although there's talk of having it one of the Comic Con days, since probably a lot of us will be together anyway.

    I think the majority of peeps here AREN'T going on Saturday, so it might make sense to do it then...it doesn't seem like enough are interested in going on Sunday anyway, so that might not work.

    Ah yes, the confusion. Gotta love it.

    My understanding was that we were going to pick the day that people _are_ going so that everyone will already be in the same place that day. What do we actually want to do?

    Dinner was good, but lightly attended. :)

    Now I'm confused.

    I thought Moriah was saying that we should have a regular club meeting on the day that people won't be at Comic Con so we can have more people at the meeting.

    No you're not, but people always seem to ask your advice on stuff.

    Well, either way I won't be at Comic Con.

    If you are meeting there, I'd prolly have to miss it.

    I was planning to goto comicon on Sunday, but I could be convinced to do Saturday.
    Two options to consider:
    If we dont have eveerybody on either Saturday or Sunday, How about we do a dinner / meeting on Friday night 2/24
    or
    If we all agree to go on Saturday to Comicon, we could leave Sunday noon open for our regular meeting on Long island.
    What do you think?
    Is there anyone who definitly will be attending Comicon on Sunday? --Billy

    It looks like we are cancelling the meeting for February. The March meeting is only two weeks away March 12. --Billy

    Mr. Secretary of the Treasury, do you want to renumber all the subsequent meetings so that the March meeting is Meeting 40? Or do you want to skip Meeting 40 entirely?
