    Hey Zaranne are you local? If so you should try to make it out to our meeting this Saturday.

    Yes, I am local, and I considered coming to your meeting, but I'm working two jobs right now, and I have to be at one of them from 3-9pm that day. Sorry! Maybe the next one!

    I just read that your meeting is at 12:30pm, which may work out for me. I'll have to see if I can, at the very least, drop by and meet you all. I'll probably have my dog with me, so I'd only be able to stay for a short time...

    It'll be fun to meet new people!

    (You don't need your dog for protection, if that's what you're thinking. :) )

    No, my dog would look at any would be attacker and think "I'm not doing anything. That kind of work is beneath me. Leave it to the Rottwielers."

    I just generally take her everywhere with me on the weekends. It's my "quality time" with her.

    That's cool. I wish I had a dog to take with me places. :(

    I got a small dog intending on taking her everywhere with me... but now I realize she would just cause trouble where ever she goes so I have to leave her at home.

    Now Matt, if you left everything at home that caused trouble, you shouldn't leave the house either.

    My dog isn't small...she's an Afghan Hound! So she's light, but tall and long! And I stuff her and all my show equipment into the back of a Saturn Sedan!

    A holidays welcome to darkknight, who posted recently on the Dead Board.

    darknight feel free to make yourself at home and to look around. When you get a chance, please tell us a little about yourself. (i.e., what are your interests, what part of the county you reside in, what boards you visit, etc.) :~)

    Welcome!

    Welcome!


    Ah, I thank you all for your warm welcomes. Well, I came to the Ventura County Board because I live here, in Ventura County. I have been a Force Forum user for one month as of today, and I wanted to wait a while before I come to my local Fanforce Board. I live in the Oxnard area, and I am a high school student here as well.

    I have come to Forcenet for the past few years, but I didn't know about the Forums until recently. I can be found in the Episode III Spoliers Board, the JC Board, and I occasionally post in the Amphitheatre and Census Boards. I'm just a Ventura County local boy, and I'm happy to spot other locals as well.

    My favorite music is Classical, and my favorite musical works are The Sleeping Beauty and Symphony No. 6 'Pathetique' by Tchaikovsky. Please feel free to check my bio, and I'm certain you may find something that you like.

    I thank you all again for you warm welcomes, and I am happy to meet you.

    EDIT: If I may say, we have a nice banner and color layout.

    Thanks for introducing yourself, darkknight!

    :~)

    We meet once a month somewhere in the county, and hope you will feel welcome to join us sometime! We don't (well, most of us anyway) bite. :~D

    Also, please visit our webpage (our webmaster hasn't had time to update it recently, but it's still *very* impressive....) at venturacountyff.org.

    :~)

    Anything you'd like to know about us, just ask away and we'll answer as best we can.

    (BTW, I'm trained as a classical oboist...not a great one, but as such I love classical as well...play lots of samples of things in my classroom as "working" music.)

    Don't thank me too much, it's all self-promotion on my part.

    speaking of which...

    Welcome, Darkknight! Another classical music fan here. I like the romantics as much as the next person, but my real favorite is Bach (J.S., that is), and love discovering new (to me) gems from even older periods.
