    Thanks for the heads up Jeff. It has been something we've been thinking of for a while. After talking with Linda I thought it may be a good idea, but I get the notion from this that all may not have worked out so well.

    Again thanks for the heads up and advice. Especially since we were in the very early stages of planning for it.

    The only reason we were able to do it is because my father is the Kitchen Manager at HTB. It took us along time to figure out how we would be able to hold it at the store without getting in trouble AND when Star Wars was still in the "public's interest". HTB and the club could have been sued by LFL for using their copywrited characters and likeness. It would be BAD mojo to do it again...

    Alrighty! Thanks for waiting patiently, all you people who were unable to make the meeting. I actually did not get home till almost 11, but then I started it right away. :) And without further ado, here it is!

    Meeting Minutes for January 12, 2003:


    Today's meeting didn't cover nearly as much stuff as we had last meeting, so thnkfully, this will not be as long :)

  4. Banner money: Today we asked every member to donate $10 for the Comic-Con banner. We now have $76 dollars in our treasury. :) I have a list of who contributed money.

  5. canned food: We are going to be collecting canned food for the next two meetigns as well, so contributions will still be welcome, but we had people bring canned food today.

  6. Jedi-Knights: The Jedi Knights are the oldest OC SW fan club. This saturday they will be having a meeting in Garden grove. anyone interested, please PM Don or wait for him to post more info.

  7. Web site: Britt is ever adding to our web page. Links have been added, and soon we will have more pictures up on the site. Today, Britt took pictures of all attending members for our member profiles that will be created sometime in the enar future.

  8. Newsletter articles: We have a bunch, but anyone who wants to contribute, PLEASE DO!!

  9. Council of 3: This is now the council of 5. The council will be: Shawn, Tracy, Don, Janie, and Theatrix. They will be in charge of coming up with group guidlines and handling issues and problems that arise. Nothing much will be happening for about 2 months, though, because of some problems that arose within another FF group.

  10. Comic-Con: our table is secured and noone can wait until Comic-Con! It is going to be a lot of fun. :) Anyone with any connections or ideas as far as buttons or and small things that we can order to give away at Comic-Con, please PM someone (like shawn or myself) and let us know. Also, keep a look out for possible gift basket material for our give away baskets! (ex) SW stuff on major sales!)

  11. Charitiy work: John (JediJohnnie) is haveing some family problems. Our thoughts are with you, John, and we hope everything works out for the best. Temporarily, Jim will be taking over the Charity leader position. I am sure he will do a super job

    Yeah there's a bunch. Sorry. I usually type them in owrd, but not this time, plus I was in an AIM Chat and watching a movie when I compiled this one :p Britt, always feel free to edit my minutes.

    And the web site is looking AWESOME! I am so impressed, it looks so great. :)

    We should figure out who we need to talk to to get a link to the web site at the top of our board like on the San Diego FF page. :)

    Usually the only things I change are the formating, spelling, and the 'person' use (I change any 'I's to 'Tracy')

    Thought I'd post my apology here for missing the Jan. meeting. My girlfriend and I were very enthusiastic about coming, and we hope all had a good time. I had a very crazy Sunday. Let's see, I witnessed a pretty severe car wreck in front of Costco Garden Grove, and stayed to provide the authorities my first-hand account. Then my parents visited unexpectedly, and I hope you all know how that can get. I certainly hope I'm not "voted out". I'm sure I'll be talking to you all on the boards for now, and again, I am sorry.

    BTW, I was wondering if any of you went to see TTT that afternoon, I was really gearing for that.

    I've been noticing that people keep writing my user name wrong, here, and on the website. It's not Jedi_Loreen with an underscore, It's Jedi-Loreen with a hyphen. I just wanted to point that out. It might make a difference if someone was trying to do a search on me, I don't know specific the search engine here is.

    Yeah, and Tracy, you forgot to mention that I was not allowed to plat SWTP. Remember, you guys said I was far too knowledgable and I can't win every game. That's why I'm not in the picture, right?

    OK, here's a trivia question for you:
    Who would win in a fight, Salacious Crumb or Uma Thurman. This is a no brainer, so if you can't get this one, I can't help you.

    ::sidenote::
    If I ever win the trivia contest, and I get to draft the next one, you guys are in for a serious treat!

    Well, Uma Thurman obviously. Salacious Crumb is a puppet, so without someone controlling him, he'd just lay there doing nothing :p

    Sorry, I'm not a big fan of Uma Therman. She's ok, I don't hate her or anything, like how I feel about Ben Afflack, er, I mean, Afleck, but I don't like her much either.
