    Geez another bad day for me. I wanna go to these meetings but they are always on the worst days for me. Also the distance from me these meetings are being held at is not good. Fx88 has offered to drive me and i'll take him up on that offer next time we have a meeting that is not on a sunday or monday (my two worst days by far). We should try to meet in like la jolla or something that's more central to san diego county.

    We will try to hold meetings at various locales around the county as meeting places become available. The only meeting place that has been made available to us at this time is the location in Tierrasanta. We can hold meetings at members homes, in a park, what other places, locales can you suggest? La Jolla isn't exactly "central" for me as I live in Otay, on the Mexican border, but I'm willing to travel because these meetings are something that are very important to me, and I've had a blast thus far.

    Yeah well both FX88 and I live in Carlsbad, and Tierrasanta is not exactly close for us either. I'm just saying i agree we should meet at a variety of places around the county to make it easier for everyone.

    I'm all for as many meeting options as possible! If you have any really good concrete suggestions to contribute, please do. I say concrete, because suggesting a general locale (such as Coronado for example) doesn't mean there is a place for certain we could meet as a group for our purposes. If you have a specific idea for a meeting place, be it office suite, house, park (I'm all for BBQ's), that's more constructive. ;)

    Please make sure to take into account the geographic enormity of our little group though! Given that our members live in an area that stretches from the Mexican border to Temecula and from PB as far east as Alpine (which is a pretty big area) , I think Mission Valley/Tierrasanta is pretty central for all of San Diego County. No one should have to drive more than 45 minutes. I don't hear too many people complain about the stadium not being central enough for SD county. (Just my $.02 though.)

    Also take into consideration PARKING as an issue... I'm sorry, but driving around for 30 minutes just looking for parking wasn't too cool for the 1st meeting. Totally worth it!!! But not cool.

    I'm totally open to suggestions for alternative meeting spots in the future, just make sure think it out before you post: issues like travel time, parking availability and cost, facilities (rooms size/movie screen/media players/etc). I'm sure there are lots of other options. Making someone from IB drive to Carlsbad probably isn't going to be one. La Jolla as a locale isn't a bad idea, as long as there is parking (which tends to be a problem in certain areas!) and a place to meet! But the Mission Valley swath of land is pretty much the center divide for SD, and equal driving time for the whole of the group.

    In the other post about event ideas, I saw some great suggestions!! Lets definitely plan some of those (especially the laser tag) and I think as we plan them, the meeting places can be coordinated nicely around them!!

    I'll try to come, but it will depend on how much homework I can get done today and tomorrow. [face_plain]

    It would be nice to play this with some competition.
    I routinely wipe the floor with my friends.

    You know what is funny? I have Star Wars Trivial Pursuit, Star Wars Monopoly, and even a Star Wars Chess set and have NEVER played any of those games. I just don't have anyone to play them with. *sob* *sniff*

    I've never played SW Trivial Pursuit, even though I too own the game. (it's buried in storage at the moment.) It's on, baby!! Let's play a round of that!!!

    Well, I will certainly try to make the meeting for at least a little while. However, can't stay too long. Have an awesome church service I go to Sunday evenings called flood, and I am not really willing to miss it.

    I'm just getting unlucky about these. The first, I was sick for, the second I didn't hear about, and now the third I have a conflict. :(

    Idea for a future meeting: beach or park. I have a set of 4 SW laser tag guns, and a friend has two more. They are great fun, but better to use outside, esp at night. Glorietta Bay Park in Coronado would be really good...

    Hello.

    Just discovered your group tonight. I would like to make your meeting on Sunday but it's too short of notice. However, I'll submit my e-mail on your web page so I'll be on the mailing list for the next meeting.

    If you need any help with the site, let me know. I'm a multimedia/internet/design consultant.

    And check out my regular SW group at the Order of the Grey (http://www.greyjedi.net)

    Running around a park at night with a blaster isn't a good idea......

    Maybe a round of Lazer Tag at the place near the Sports Arena?

    Grey_Jedi,

    I am sending you a private message with the email address of ValueROCKR who is leading our webteam. I think he would appreciate any help you could give him.

    Can everyone just chime in "if" they are going, how many people they will bring with them, and what, if anything, they can bring to the potluck. I am sure the rain this weekend will have a negative affect on attendence. Our first meeting only had 13 people attend, and we all had a blast, so we'll have a good time irregardless. And there are 4 doorprizes this meeting, so if less people show up, that increases your chances to win! ;)

    I plan to bring at least 1 large Pizza Hut pizza and drinks, ice, and cups. I'll bring more if I'm not lazy. I am moving this weekend so chances are that I'll be lazy though. It was also suggested we wear nametags, so I'll bring some of those too.
