    Okay, these are the minutes live from the event.

    James and Valerie were stuck in traffic coming home from vacation so, I had to run things.

    Okay Matt was there but I was pretending he wasn't because he doesn't know how long the Executor really is.

    Actually, when I finished the minutes, I looked around the table and typed in who I saw, and you must have walked away so stay in your seat or make sure I get you in there or suffer.

    It's actually quite simple Rob. Ignore the title and pay attention to the colors. While titles are an honor around here, the colors are far more important. CRs are blue, mods can pretty much choose their own, and I think former mods are red.

    So unless someone has notified an RSA to have the title changed, it'll stick. Which is why my title still shows former CR. I'm sure I could have it removed, but I kind of like it.

    I wouldn't count on him seeing that post of yours soon, Aaron. Take a look at his lastest post dates.

    It could be another 6 or 7 months before he checks back in here.

    I don't think he's interested in selling anymore, but I can give him a call and find out for you. Rion also talks to him about once a week, so I'm sure he can find out for you as well.

    Minutes from the March meeting, because knowing is half the battle!
    Wizard World is this weekend. Doesn't look like too many OC or LA fanforcers are going. A few people from San Diego might though. More info on what stars and artist are going to be there, and what exclusives will be sold can be found at www.wizardworld.com

    Bowling with the LA fanforce on Saturday the 25th. More info can be found on our [link=http://boards.theforce.net/orange_county_ca/b10123/23336464/p1/?14]boards[/link]. You can do all your trash talking [link=http://boards.theforce.net/los_angeles_ca/b10134/23016383/p1/?19]here[/link]

    April 22nd there is a literacy fair with a focus on getting kids to read. We will have an outer space themed booth. If you would like to donate a few Star Wars, or space type books and coloring books, that would be great, you can bring them to the April meeting, or to the actual [link=http://boards.theforce.net/orange_county_ca/b10123/23164075/p1/?6]event[/link]JediJen has already donated a few books, but we could use some more.

    The Star Wars Fan Day at Disneyland will be psuhed from Saturday June 24th, to Sunday June 25. This is because the park will be closing early on the 24th so that they can show the premiere of Pirates 2 in Disneyland.
    So, June 24th= Old busted.
    June 25th= New hotness
    This has been updated on the [link=http://www.disneylandstarwars.com/]site[/link]

    The Black Smudge won the movie quote contest, with his almost unending barrage of pop culture. He recieved a set of Episode 3 stamps from the Autralian Post.

    Smudge also attacked our auditory senses with an excellent trivia quiz via iPod and portable speakers. He played selected music from the movies, and asked questions pertaining to each track. Very creative. I won't post the questions as there is no musicon the boards.
    Out of a possible 30, Liz took the win with 20 friggin points. 2nd place goes to our former leader Rob with 16 points, and 3rd was Phil with 15 points.
    Liz randomly selected James as the winner of a Star Wars Transformer generously donated by Phil.

    DUES - We don't ask for much, ($2 a month) and they go to good and worthy things and stuff. Please contact Don to pay.

    It has been suggested that we move the meetings back to Denny's, or find a new meeting place altogether. To voice your opinion on the matter (and you really should as it's your club) join the ongoing discusion [link=http://boards.theforce.net/orange_county_ca/b10123/23161746/p1/?18]here[/link] in last months meeting thread

    In the pensieve I see Crazybirdman, Crowbar, Smudge, Falcon, TiePilotTillard, LizardJedi, Robeewan and his younglings (broke the Jedi code, 4 times!), Jedi Loreen, Amun-Scio Kalla, and his padawan, Zhi-Don, and a bunch of people I don't know at the other tables.
    If I forgot you, let me know, if I mispelled anything, I don't care.

    You missed Smudge's cool audio Triva Quiz. It was fun, but I kind of tanked because I don't own any of the sound tracks on anything playable. (I have a couple of the OT sound tracks on vinyl, but no turntable anymore [face_blush] )

    I thought about going to my old HS and asking one of the teachers if I could borrow their Scantron grader for the weekend, and just buying a bunch of sheets, but I figured that would be way to nerdy, even for me.

    We will just see how.. brilliant this quiz is.. heh.
