    Hm... wow, I need to check this thread more often.... Hello everyone, my apologies for not being around for like over a year, but the demands of school and work have been hectic. However, I should be able to make that meeting, I don't believe I go into work until 4 or 5 so I can hang out for a couple of hours :) So I'll hope to see you all there!

    Hi, Kyaen- Welcome back! It'll be good to see you again. It has been a year. We last saw you at the Children's Miracle Network day at Walmart and that was Nov. 5th, 2005.

    When: Saturday 4th November, 2006
    Time: 2pm
    Where: Cocos @ Ontario Mills
    4360 Mills Circle Rd.
    Ontario, CA 91764

    Agenda
    1. First Annual IEFF Christmas Party Planning (Everybody)
    2. Christmas Parade in Victorville (Jedifan77)
    2. Thanksgiving Food Hyper-Drive (Everybody)
    3. Stargazing - Episode II (Jedifan77/Jangosmom)
    4. Any other business

    Here you go folks, Agenda for the meeting on Saturday.

    I dont think I am going to be able to make it. My wife's Grandpa is in hospital again and it's not looking good. I need to be available to the family. If DSP makes it he will chair the meeting as Vice Chancellor.

    I'll just throw my thoughts on the agenda in here.

    1. Party
    I was thinking we should have this on the same day as the planned parade on Dec 2nd. We could have it after the parade, it would be alot of fun. I think having it at that time of the day could be good cos I know that for myself evenings in Dec are pretty much all booked up visting friends, family and parties not to mention the all important chrimbo shopping!

    I propose we do a white elephant, or White Wookie as it'll now be known. Rules of which would be each person bring 1 wrapped gift (ideally Star Wars related) it can be something great, something rubbish, tottaly up to you. The value should be no more than say $10. We'll then do an exchange where the first person picks a gift and unwraps it, the next person can then pick a gift or steal any of the other opened gifts. If you steal, the person stolen from picks another from the pile (No stealing). The person who opened first can then get the chance to steal at the end.

    2. Parade
    It's on the morning of Dec 2nd. JF77 has submitted the form, we will find out on or before Nov 16th if we're in. In the mean time we should plan for it as Nov 16th is pretty short notice.

    I would suggest 2 people walk in front of the falcon with our banner. Everyone else would walk around/ behind the falcon. There's no stopping on the route.

    I have asked someone in the 501st to see if they have a few people that want to join in and also from the RL too. Darren from the 501st may come along to the meeting on Saturday. I'll let you know soon.

    Food Hyper Drive
    If someone can let me know when we're going to drop off our donations i can arrange to get mine to them or I can send a check to someone to buy/donate on my behalf.

    I have a letter typed up to go with our dontations, i'll e-mail it to whoever is dropping the stuff off.

    Any of Business

    January Meeting - On a Sat would be cool, at a Coco's anywhere would be fine.

    January Event - How's about going bowling?

    C-IV - Start the rumor mill! No real planning needed for it yet as nothing has been announced. Yeah we'll aim for a booth, yeah we're prob all going. Keep all your eyes and ears open for the announcements on C-IV so we can get cracking on them.

    Where Science Meets Imagination - This starts in Feb. It's gotta be our Feb event! [face_dancing]

    Another Way Giving Tree - Once we have the final details on this we can plan on going along and doing some good work for this. Costumes, Giving away Star Wars Goodies and also helping on the giving tree.

    Bring anything you have either monetary donations or canned goods to the meeting. I'll take them when I go to help them on the 20th. I think at this point I"m the only one going to help Another Way, as everyone else has to work.

    Thought I'd add this happy piece of news for anybody headed to the meeting from up here. Guess we just need to plan accordingly. You can check out the whole story here.

    Motorists going from the High Desert to lower San Bernardino County could face delays of up to two hours, Caltrans chief of public affairs Rose Melgoza said on Tuesday.

    Two closures at the Interstate 15 and Interstate 215 interchange will begin at 9 a.m. Friday and continue until 1 p.m. Sunday: the southbound I-15 connection to southbound I-15, and the northbound I-215 connection to southbound I-15.

    ?We really need to let people know that the ultimate detour is to take I-215 southbound to the I-10 west,? Melgoza said of the I-15 south closure. ?That is the fastest way to get through this.?

    For motorists who would normally take I-215 north to reach I-15 south, Melgoza suggested going south on I-215 and taking I-10 west to reach I-15 south.

    Thanks Deb.

    I'm sorry to say he passed away yesterday morning. All his daughters and Aimee and her cousin were at his side when it happened.

    On the Franks & Son, you may wanna go before the meetings as it closes at 5pm.

    Sorry I can't be at this one. We've moved our Grand Opening to the 4th due to last week's fire. I'm up for a group meeting at my new Star Wars-themed game room and theater, which "opens for business" tomorrow night.

    Have a great meeting, folks!

    Please give our love and condolences to Aimee and her family.

    I've also heard that the freeways won't be closed due to the fire fighters memorial.

    Does anybody want to hit up Frank & Sons before our meeting?

    I'm in for Frank & Sons, doesn't matter what time. I was thinking about going to a Military Surplus store in Pomona at some point, but that can be either before or after the meeting, depends what everyone else is doing.

    I too heard about the memorial. It was posted on all of the traffic update signs on the freeway today. I-15 road closure has been cancelled for this weekend.

    If we wait until after the meeting to go to Frank & Sons we won't have much time there. Haven't seen HSF in awhile so I don't know if he's interested in a road trip. I think there are directions on the site so we should be able to find it just fine. How far away is Pomona from F&S? If we start early enough we can get it all in before the meeting. What do ya think? Anybody else want to join us?

    I don't mind leaving the surplus store until afterwards. And I've been to Frank & Sons a couple times now, so I know where it is. Do you want to meet at the restaurant and car pool from there? What time?

    I have to be back up the hill by 5:00, so I have to do all my runnin' around before the meeting. I'll have the padawan and his friend (Blake) with me again. They're really looking forward to F&S.

    DH, I have to leave my house around 8 for something else and then pick up Blake in Fontana around 9:15. Give me a call on my cell in the morning so we can figure out a time and a place to meet.

    Meeting at the restaurant/Ontario Mills Mall is fine. Means we can leave a vehicle there, as far as time... what time you want to meet might determine how late I stay up tonight. ;)
