Yeah, I am ok with meeting up online or something like that.
I'll do a cyber-meeting. I feel bad that the meeting was cancelled, but this pool is taking forever.
How bout we meet up around 12 midnight Saturday? Late night chat for a bit?
Everyone & anyone is invited!
I need AOL IMs for the Chat Invites. Just PM me your AOL IM..
What date are we looking at for the next meeting?
Sorry for the silence.. I'm in the home stretch of my degree (finish in October) & I had to take a summer course in addition to the courses I already have.. Although it's a Philosophy Course, so it's pretty cool
Anyways.. Date wise, I'm thinking Saturday, July 14th..
What is the movie of choice?
We can try Harry Potter or Transformers.
I vote for Transformers, mainly because I'll probably see Harry Potter with my daughter.
I'm voting for Harry Potter. I'm going with the kids on the 4th for Transformers, and I don't think I could watch it twice. I might be forced to shoot myself.
well I vote Potter because that will be my first chance to see it...
though I did have a dream that Transformers is really good I just don't trust that nonsense.
You should really follow your dreams, Gia! lol
Ok, I sould like an afterschool special...
I guess Harry Potter it is.. YOu guys know it will be packed.. I think this is the second weekend of Harry Potter.. We should probably meet early at teh movies, pick up tickets & then go grab a bit to eat..
Sounds like a plan. I think the 14th will be the first weekend actually, but I could be wrong.
Can anyone do the 15th instead of the 14th? I'm getting sucked into a trip to Hershey Park on the Saturday.. & I don't want to postpone the Meeting.
I could do the 15th.
I will check and get back to you.
Would the 22nd or 29th be better?
My Saturdays are booked for the month, but I don't start work until 8:00 PM on Sundays.. I would't mind going on the 29th & seeing Transformers.. My daughter gave me 'the look' when I told her I wasn't seeing Harry Potter with her..
It looks like July is shot for us..
But..., I totally understand.. Since we are all adults with families, teh summer is the hardest time to get together. With summer 'to-do lists' & family vacations, summer time is sometime all we have. I value this reasons for delay and is a A LOT different than not being able to meet because of lack of interest. I know, that we are all still interested in keeping our group going.
That being said.. I'd like to lock in an August Meeting..
I was thinking for August:
Saturday, August 18th
PA Ren Faire!
Spoke with Stacy & he is good with that date.. In fact, he has NEVER been to the Ren Faire!
Gia, Chris, how bout you two? Can you folks make it?
Gia and I are coming and so is my wife and our kids, and a couple other friends from out of town. Stacy you still in? Steph any idea if you can come? This weekend is coming up fast... Just as a reminder we are talking about the 11th, Rob had mistyped the wrong weekend earlier.
I'll be bringing the wife and kids. Chris, What time are you planning on getting there ? Just a ballpark time would be good.
Not sure what time the gates open, but probably a half hour before opening if possible.
I?m happy to see my absence is not putting a damper on the event!

Unfortunately work calls and I cannot make it this Saturday. I hope everyone has fun, though.
I'm happy to hear that everyone had fn at the Ren faire! (Steph, I will have to drag you to the next meeting, lol)
Anyways, I'm going to update this with a date for the September Meeting sometime next week. I need to take a look at my game schedule (youth soccer coach), becuase I don't want any reason why I can't make it.
Any suggestions..? Any events or movie premiers in September?
Just a suggestion, what about The Bourne Ultimatum ?
How are we looking for September? The boards (both) are a bit slow.. Are we busy with RL?
