    OK, it was brought up by several of you, so let's address it.

    When the group first started, we tried to have regular meetings once a month, on the same weekend each month (first Saturday, I believe). However, when summer rolled around, people's schedules conflicted, and keeping the regular schedule became virtually impossible. However, with more of you taking interest, it may be the time to try the regular meeting thing again.

    So, that said, when would you guys and gals like to schedule it? I'd prefer times to be flexible, but we can obviously set the date in stone.

    Fire away! When's good for you?

    Greetings friends...

    The third Thursday of each month, at 6:30pm is the Model Railroad Club meeting, and one other night of the week I play inline hockey at Skateworld.

    Otherwise, most evenings and weekends are good for me. I think setting a time and date will make it easier to plan when to be there. It can still be flexible for special occasions. Take the Railroad Club I'm in for example. While our meeting time and place is set, we've also had the meeting sometimes at different places. One time we met and rode the steam train at Mason Machine Shop off Rt.19. And this month we're meeting on a Sat. in Parkersburg, b/c their club is having an open house on June 18. Well worth going to if you like trains.

    Personally, Fridays are good for me. That's my regular day off. But with advance notice of say a week or so (and this would be taken care of with a set date) I can switch from Friday off to Saturday off.

    In the past, weekends seem to fit with most people's schedules. Our last default date/time was a Saturday.

    Saturday evenings are good for me, as well as any time on Sunday.

    I work Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM.
    So if its late evening on any day other than Monday would be ideal.
    However depending on where the meetings take place i may be late.

    I was a little confused on the last meeting, I thought it was the friday
    cause of how the posts went. Im sorry for being confused, but I get that
    way sometimes.

    I got an interesting tidbit of info too. I dont know how many of you are aware of the
    toyshow at monroeville mall they have 2 or 3 times a year.

    Oh, yes, we're well aware of the Toy Show. They usually contact us directly, since we've been before. :D We usually go to the one that's in conjunction with the Pittsburgh Comicon, which is also in Monroeville at the ExpoMart.

    OK, since most of you are OK with Saturdays (or can be, given enough notice), how does the first Saturday of the month sound to everyone?
