    It was a great meeting yesterday. It was nice to see some new faces and see the usual ones too. It was an extremely productive meeting and it was quite fun.

    What does everybody think of the new meeting style of discussing club events and then opening the table for a general discussion about anything as a way to socialize? I personally think it was effective. It kept us from going off on as many tangents as we usually do. It is also great because anyone who is only interested in discussing Star Wars and socializing (and who does not want to plan events) can come to the last part of the meeting.


    And last but not least, thanks to Ark for filling in for Billy as secretary for the day. Here is the agenda to give people an idea of what was discussed until Ark posts the minutes.

    I agree. Yesterday's meeting was one of the best ones I have been at, It seemed to flow more smoothly than usual and things where no where near as chaotic as they normaly are.

    I like how this meeting turned out.


    Quick question, will there be an official meeting next month, or just the holiday special veiwing party?

    I brifly talked to our City Rep and she agreed that maybe we could have a short meeting at the beginning of the Holiday Special part III party. I think aslo alot of us are not free many weekends in July to schedule a meeting.
    So at the party we get right to business and then strat the mayhem and fun. What do you all think? --Billy
