    As you may remember, at the last meeting, we agreed to have the next meeting on Sunday, instead of the usual Saturday. This was due to the fact the Bowl 4 Kids event takes place Sunday, April 18th and this way people don't have to come from all over Northeast Ohio for 2 events in 2 days. That said the April 18th meeting will be held at McDonald's on the corner of Rockside and Route 21 (Brecksville Rd) after the Bowl 4 Kids event. Time to be determined. They have 2 floors and don't mind us meeting as a group upstairs. If you are interested in bowling along with the Rebel Strike Team, the bowling alley is right on Route 21, about 1.5 - 2 miles from the McDonald's.

    Is the bowling alley north or south on 21 from Rockside?

    North. You get off of I-77 at Rockside and turn right. The McDonald's is on the southeast corner of Rockside and 21. To get to the bowling alley you turn left onto 21 at Rockside.

    Ok, here's the easiest directions to BOTH locations: If your driving on Rockside Rd (heading east)...just before you go down into the valley (hence the name Valleyview Cinemark) @ Rt 21 there is a McDonalds on your right (remember that...it's kinda important later)

    Turn left (north) and keep driving (across the bridge) until you see "Cloverleaf Lanes" on your right...be careful, the driveway is kinda hidden...but it is on the right.

    After bowling, head back the way we came...and go to the McDonalds...easy as that!

    Thanks for the direction to the bowling alley. :)

    Driveway is hidden? Sounds like the entrance to the main branch of the Akron-Summit County Library. ;)

    It's not really "hidden" but you can miss it...if you're not paying attention. To give you an idea (geographically) where this place is...you know that really big Goodyear sign, Cloverleaf is right next to the base of that sign.

    The directions almost sound too easy.

    Good news, I should be able to make it for at least a while. Evidently my family thinks its ok for me to leave the party for a while to go bowling with a bunch of Jedi Knights and Stormtroopers.

    I haven't decided if this is a good thing or not. [face_laugh]

    Yeah, coming from the south, it's right at a bend in the road at the top of a hill. But don't worry, there are 2 entrances.

    As I kinda mentioned on the website, we've got a couple thing to go over:

    April Meeting Agenda:
    celebrate success of "Rebel Strike Team"
    launch of the website
    Pittsburgh ComiCon
    summer event planning
    (possible) introductions with USS Gallifrey
    RoP update

    Anything else you guys can think of?

    That's fine Eric...personally, I'm glad to welcome anyone (regardless of their sci-fi affiliation) who are offering to introduce us to other SW fans in the area and want to get involved with us in community service projects.

    Besides, in a fight between you and a Klingon...my credits are going to be on Worf! ;)

    Trekkie massacre.

    My lightsaber against your phaser. Yeah, you better run. Hehe.

    Oh the ways I could trash talk a trekkie...





    Argh, fine, I'll "try" to be nice.

    I'd love to meet you all and attend my first meeting, but I broke my arm at work on 3/17 and doc says I'm not cleared to drive...:(

    I'm from Lake County I knew that - DarthDurance

    That's a little out of my range, I'm coming in from Parma...anyone else out that way who could give him a lift.

    BMack is ordering business cards, and has asked for anyone who can to chip in a few bucks towards off-setting the cost of producing 500 cards. They'll be ready in time for the meeting and B4KS, and afterwards we can use them for a major recruitment effort.

    The website is out of dry-dock and it's time we let the world know we're out there!

    No thank you guys for the thoughtful gesture, but I couldn't expect anyone to do that.

    Trekkie massacre [face_shocked] But some of my best friends are Trekkies and I've always watched whatever science fiction was on TV--sometimes even the bad stuff! Does this mean I need to go hide out on Tattoine with Obi-Wan? I could get used to that! [face_mischief]

    No worries...we look out for each other around here. If you can't find a ride this time...we'll catch ya at the next event.

    BTW, our attempts at scouting out your part of town have been unsuccessful. (to be polite) Any ideas on how we can do recruiting out your way? Anyone else you know of that is a Star Wars fan or local collector's shops/bookstores that would help us get the word out?
