    hehe, why thank you. May i once again inform you that you rock.

    I have a pretty good Jedi Robe actually...it's just that that's all i have, haha. I've spent my time and effort consumed in a renaissance costume for awhile now. So now that i have that over with maybe i shall start focusing on the Star Wars side of things...hehe.

    Well yes i'm that to. But seriously what 18 year old girl proudly claims to be a member of the Star Wars Oregon Fanforce and visits the message board daily? All the girls I know are at the mall right now buying...oh what are some of those stupid popular brands? Well there are lots of em. I get along with girls pretty well until my geeky side comes out...hm...

    Master Keyan, it's really nice of you to help out Larena with rides. We've been seeing more carpooling going on to get to events/meetings, which I think is great. But, I've been thinking that we, as a group, should come up with some proceedures about carpooling, to protect the riders and drivers. Are there any ideas? I think, at a minimum, there should be comunications with the board about who will be carpooling with who, when they plan to leave and arive, etc. And maybe there should be a minimum age for drivers and passengers in a car pool? I'm not sure if we need anymore than that, but I'm open.

    And Larena, you are correct, we need to get back into traditional posting for fun, and not just posting to organize events. I've been noticing this a lot myself, and the board has not been as fun to visit lately, even though there are more members posting. We should get back to having more discussions, etc. I will try to come up with more topics, but I've noticed that my topics tend to be boring and die fast :-B, so it would help if everyone can think of topics that everyone would like to discuss. Anyone for a new Popcorn story ?

    If there is an event we are attending, Wajiii and I are usually glad to have a rider or two with us. However, I don't think Id be comfortable with anyone under 18 riding with us, unless they had a parent/guardian with them or express permission from the parent/guardian ahead of time (phone contact at the very least). I wouldnt really feel comfortable with a complete stranger as well, so it would be better to stick to people who we have attended meetings with in the past or have at least been posting for awhile. Specified arrival/departure times are a good idea as well. I apologize if Im being weird about all that, but Im used to the big city where you need to be careful.

    Yay for more topics! There has been lots of focus on sword fighting and costumes lately, which is great because so many people get alot of enjoyment out of those aspects of things. However, those are also topics which Wajiii and I will probably never focus on, so I understand how Larena feels, although to much lesser degree. Someday we might get around to getting Wookiee/Leia costumes for the two of us, but honestly I dont think its ever going to be a priority for us. Now, to think of some topics...

    I dont think that would be a problem, nobody here is under 18. We had a 13 year old once a long time ago i think but he wasn't here very long.

    I agree, there should be some form of safety(?) in place for those who feel the *need*. I think its sad that in this day and age people have to be so scared of each other. Although I fully understand the motivations people have for such feelings, it still strikes me as sad. Perhaps placing a measure of some sort in place for those that are feeling insecure about carpooling with others is a good idea. I don't know exactly how or what, but it couldn't hurt...if it is of any consolation, no one has anything to fear from my wife and I, we are just here to have fun, and help others where we can. I think we have demonstrated that so far. I am willing to help out where I can, but perhaps we should look into exactly what we are talking about in all this. I sense an unusual amount of discomfort for something as trivial as carpooling...maybe it's just me. Or is Oregon indeed that dangerous? I dunno, in Montana, worries such as these are not so prevalent. I am not sure what to think, really. I guess we'll see...

    I would call it taking reasonable precautions to protect individual and the group as a whole. There are strange people on the internet you know ;)

    No doubts there! Perhaps anyone under 18 must have at minimum, written parental consent, in advance...I dunno , something like that... The only thing I would want, is if I were transporting a minor, to have met the parent(s), gotten their OK on paper, and then, I'd feel better. I am confident that I can take care of myself, so I really don't feel threatened in any way, but I can definitely see where someone else might! I think it will ultimately boil down to a case by case basis....

    Larena is doing well, at least on the whole. We still talk often, and I believe her current plan is to try and hop into WOU for the next term and move out to Monmouth.

    January 15th, 2007 (yes, I know it's the future :p) - Vengie moves back to Oregon for an indefinite stay.

    Darth-Bubba: Way to represent the clans! [face_dancing] Are you Scottish, and if so what clan are ya, or do you just enjoy toting the kilt about?
