    This is really a meeting for all the new members we hope to have gained on the 28th. The reason it goesfor two hours is so that people who can't come to the first time can come to the second.

    It will be held in the Library Group room. I'll post what's going to come up at the meeting later.

    Locked per CR request

    And to think - a little while back and I'd be on the other side, instead of the other side of the world. *Sigh* the good ol' dayz...

    To business - did you happen to get a 'newbie pack' compiled yet? Maybe I could help with something like that. I have to warn you though - my laptop is still out of action and this computer does not have publisher, photoshop and the like. Crikey - it does not even have word. But I could work on the contents until our install disks arrive in the post.

    Welcome to the FF ForceChix, feel free to go to our social thread the Trade Federation Cantina where anything goes.

    This thread is primarily about the upcoming meeting next Thursday. Viceroy and I will have the metting-before-themeeting to set the rough agenda sometime tomorrow between classes, but what we basically need to do is elect office bearers, discuss the upcoming event on the 17th and basically ask everyone what they would want to do as an FF.

    We also have Rebestormer's offer of a lightsaber training day. he will come up from Hobart if we ask him.

    Could you add the website to the agenda please?

    I think by now that most ppl have seen it (if you haven't pls go here: www.cyberartspace.com/FFTas)

    You guys can formally decide whether or not to accept it (at its very unfinished stage) and officially designate the task.

    As to who to designate it to, I don't mind doing it by my lonesome, however JawaPro has very kindly offered his knowledgeable help. If you're still interested in this particular site, then I think the best way forward would be to elect us both as 'website technicians' or something like that. Then we can work on it together and with our forces combined we can take over the...*Ahem* Yes, as I was saying...

    As for the content of the page, such as the 'About Tas' and 'Star Wars' etc. I reckon that we could come up with the best result if everybody who wants to pitches in a bit. If someone feels like writing up the whole page, then they definetly should. If others want to leave it up to us, that of course is okay as well. I just feel like I'm hogging it at the moment. I wrote out the other content mainly to see how the site would work in terms of layout, so if you want to change any of that it's perfectly okay.

    Maybe you could bring these things up in the next meeting, then whatever the outcome, we can get the site finished and up sooner.

    Don't worry, Amaya, the website is on the agenda.

    After the meeting next week I'll dispense the titles.

    As for the content, well I like it but we can see what everyone else says about it as well.

    The first meeting of 2006. I wasn't able to post the issues that arose out of the meeting yesterday because the Internet out at uni was down due to a fire in the IT Department on the Hobart campus.

    However, in the meeting yesterday it was agreed upon that the proposed trivia night for March 17 should be postponed to a later date until we get more members and then FFTAS can become an affliliated uni society and get funding from the university. We proposed having it at the uni bar on either a Thursday or a Friday .

    We proposed having a Saga screening night for May 4th in the Seafarers Lounge at the AMC next to the uni. But the Saga night has to be reserved for members and their family and friends etc. due to copyright and related laws.

    We plan to hold a raffle to raise funds for functions. We thought of having a raffle last year but didn't go ahead because we needed a permit for the gov't. But we have found out that we can have one without permit as long as we have prizes no greater than $500 and the total value of the prizes can't exceed one third of tickets sold. So that will be going ahead hopefully soon.

    A joint meeting with the people from Hobart was considered and needs to be arranged two weeks before proposed date so we'll keep you people down in hobart in touch about when we propose that meeting.

    Lastly we're thinking of holding a social event before May 4th so we'll keep everyone update when that comes around.

    The next meeting will be on Wednesday March 29th at 3pm.

    MTFBWY.

    Sorry I wasnt able to make it to the meeting. I am doing a Project as part of my Uni course, and it's taking a LOT more of my time than I expected.

    Anyway - what was decided about the website? Is it a go?

    And does anyone feel like they would like to contribute some content?

    Basically you and Amaya Unduli have free rein. When you got something show it to us, we'll comment and then go ahead with it. Basically we need to get it up there.

    Will you be able to come to the next meeting? We deliberately made it a wednesday as a Thursday was bad for most people.

    Azreal can't come for obvious reasons.

    Wednesdays are normally fine for me. Between 11 and 3.30 anyway. So I'll be able to be there for 30 min anyway.

    It was just that things got pretty hectic for me lately and I completely forgot about the meeting - sorry. I was actually in Hobart on that day as it happens, but I'll normally be around uni here.

    I should be able to come - but if something happens (like a client meeting for the project or something) then I wont make it.

    But yeah - assuming no other problems I'll be there.

    But then again, I assume too much...
