    OK, there had been some discussion about having our next meeting in August.

    Also mentioned was how busy August would be. People getting in their last minute vacations before the school year starts is one of the biggest concerns that I have noticed.

    So, we have a choice.
    1. Either we meet again near the beginning of the month.
    2. Meet during a week night
    3. Skip August this time around.

    Even though I would like a repeat of our last meeting, I would consider #3, since if we did have a meeting, only a few of us would be able to attend. And we know the more the merrier. I'd still be open for #2, as long as it was either Monday or Wednesday at around 5pm or later.

    Anyway, I figured we could discuss this here instead of in the July Meeting topic.

    I would be open for a monday or wednesday but we would have to plan it now so I could take off since my work schedule every week is monday wednesday 5-10 lol. So not the best night usually but if I know right now and we plan it it could work. The beginning of the month isnt good either since we are going up to a cabin around the first, and then wizard world is that weekend on the 6th. So anytime after the 6th up until the 17th I am free if you let me know in advance to take off work. So I am going with 2 preferably but maybe 3 if I just cant do it this time.

    For what it is worth, a weeknight would really work out for me. I can simply take the bus from the square, and then only have two buses to ride to get home.

    Well Tuesday is a bit of short notice but as I said I'll be down at the mall/Boarders area anyway Tuesday.
    As far as I can tell Wednesday, Thursday and Friday would all work
    With Thursday and Friday I'd be able to review the new Star Wars Book

    We are talking AUGUST, right? It's still July this week, so nothing should be too short of notice, I think.

    How about August 9th, Tuesday at 5pm?
    Do we want Borders again, or somewhere else?

    I'd be there, but I get out of work at 5, so it would take me a bit of time to get to Borders.

    5:30 then??

    I can't stay too late because I have other things I need to do Tuesdays after 7pm. I'd hate to have a short short meeting, unless we plan more than one meeting this month.

    I picked that date for two reasons.
    Brent has work Mon. and Wed. & he can tell us about the convention from the weekend before.

    Of course, another day and time could be picked if everyone wants to.

    It works fine for me, I will be done with the new book by then, I sugest if you want to pick it up go to Boarders, I had a hell of a time finding it.

    Where is "there"?
    [face_laugh]
    So Tuesday, August 9th at 5:30pm is the day and time agreed upon.
    We just don't have a location yet.
    Or do we?
    [face_thinking]
    I guess we could make a return appearance to Borders.
    Maybe we can get the sofa area in the sci-fi section this time.

    Me thinks Jon don't like us anymore.

    Where did we leave off with our last meeting? I was thinking we could pick up from there, because I think we still had a lot to talk about.

    I'll be in Borders at 5:30pm on the 9th. Be sure to check the science fiction section to see if the couches are free for us. If they are, you might find me there. Otherwise we might need to pull a couple tables together.

    What topics did you fine people wish to discuss?

    I know that Eric just announced FilmCon 5 for this autumn. November to be exact. I guess we could talk about that.

    Oh yeah, Brent is supposed to supply us with lots of detailed stories of Wizard World, and pictures too, if he gets any.

    Anything else???

    I will be able to make it as usual. And I will hopefully have some good pictures from Wizard World and some news since I did find out that Steve Sansweet is doing another presentation on Saturday mostly I am guessing about the new TV show. That should be interesting.

    OK, just a reminder that this Tuesday at 5:30pm we will meet at Borders bookstore on the east side. That's tomorrow!

    I'm sure there are a few things we can discuss.

    I'll do my best to save us some sofa space in the Sci Fi section of the store.

    See everyone there.

    Once again, it was a very enjoyable two hours last night (that always seem to fly by!) for me, learning new information and in very good company. Thanks again.

    I'd have to agree. I did enjoy our get together very much.

    The time does slip by rather quickly, but that just proves how much fun we have. I'd be up for another meeting this month, but it seems that everyone else is very busy. So, with that said, would someone mind starting a thread for September?

    I do know there are a few days in that month I will be busy, but most of it will be free.
    Maybe we could have a longer meeting then.
