    Should we start by picking a date? Maybe towards the end of the month would be best, so everybody has time to plan. How would
    Friday the 26th or Saturday the 27th work out for everybody?

    Maybe the weekend of the 20th or 21st would be better. May 27-29th is Memorial Day weekend. Anywhere is fine for me.

    Are you doing this today (Sunday)? I drove past Things yesterday (Saturday) and saw storm troopers outside Things. Did you put down the wrong day or was that a different group? Unfortunately, I had places to go and people to meet yesterday, so I couldn't stop. But if you will be there today, I will stop by Things to say hi, and get my free comic.

    I posted this on Saturday. That's when we were there. If you drove past some troopers on Sandy, that was us!

    Let's do the 21st (Sunday).

    I'll defer to another member to choose the place. Time should be early evening. Location - something a little more central?

    If a time and place has not been chosen by the Friday of the week, I'll step up and take the reigns :D

    21st sounds good to me. Really, anything in the evening generally works out for Bill and I.

    I might be able to come. I've got graduation to worry about for the rest of the month and that's keeping me busy.

    Sorry. Due to lack of funds caused by an insidious move this past weekend, I will not be going to the Eugene Comicbook Show. But I will make myself available to go to a OFF meeting.

    Is anybody still interested in getting together this weekend? If so, Id be glad to pick a local place (local for me = downtown Portland) for us to gather on the 21st. Sorry, I know there was a lot of interest in meeting in a more central location but Im just not very familiar with outside of downtown. Thats what I get for living in Pennsyvlania for most of my life. :oops: Sooo...unless there seems to be no interest or someone wants to suggest something outside of Portland, Ill find a pizza place and post here later.

    Here's a tentative plan, hope this will work okay for you guys:

    Sunday May 21st 6PM
    Community Room
    1330 SW 3rd Ave
    Portland OR 97201


    This is the community room in our building, its nice and roomy with plenty of comfortable seating and kitchen area. There is also a TV which we are looking into getting set up for playing DVDs, at least as background entertainment. We are also planning to get burgers/picnic type food to cook out on the grill. Sound ok for around 6ish on the 21st? Sorry for the short notice but it would be really good if you guys could let me know whos planning on coming and how many people you will be bringing. If anybody needs directions or anything else, let me know and I can PM my cell #.

    That's funny, I wanted to go on a peace march but I was too busy playing WARCRAFT and studying martial arts. ;)

    T'Igor is welcome if you do decide to bring him! We have lots of toys and action figures to keep him happy if you change your mind.
