    OK, here we go.

    So far(6/25), we had 7 people vote.
    2 - East Side
    2 - North Side
    1 - Central
    2 - Other (no posts indicating where "other" they are)

    However, only have 4 different people posting to that thread. That means 3 other people haven't posted.

    Just to make it clear, this next meeting (July 13th) will help determine whether or not we can get enough people to form an official FF in Madison. So far, it doesn't look good. So go forth and gather everyone you know and have them post here and come to the meetings.

    Just in case...
    There is an alternative. Those who are interested could join the Milwookiee FF. Most of their meetings are in the SE part of the state, though. That was one of the reasons we were trying to form a Madison FF... to make meetings more convenient for us who live around here.

    We need people who will be dedicated to this, so spread the word.

    You can't hitch a ride with any of us? Time to let loose with a "WT*?!?" Yoda_Boba, I'm pretty sure one of us could pick you up.

    I already said that I would give you a ride Yoda-Boba. If you are afraid of me giving you a ride, then that's ok. You will just miss out on some good times at the meetings then.

    Again, we have only 3 or 4 people in the area who are posting to this board. I'm wondering where the others are and why they don't post. Even a simple "Hello" would be good.

    Invite your parents to come and check it out...that usually answers their concerns. If nothing else, your williness to let them in on "your thing" might be enough to let them loosen up a bit. Of course, all parents are different. :)

    Yoda_boba, I thought the same thing about my parents when I was your age. They'd say no right off the bat, so I thought. Until one time I finally decided to move past the assuming, and I asked them and got a yes with a "but" attatched to it. It was a yes none-the-less though. They actually may say yes, so bite the bullet and ask them goshdarnit!

    the "buts" are bad, they need to know the person first...

    Sheesh, then just bring them with. Then you kill two stormtroopers with one stone. You get to come to the meeting AND your parents get to meet us. Just give it a whirl and see what happens. Humor us and ask them.

    It was posted a few times before. Please have your parents come along.

    I know, I know... Getting them to go will be tough, but I'm sure that if you show them this board, and let them read our posts, they will see that we aren't freaks(Well, not completely :D ).

    If they like, they can PM me or some of the others here and learn all they want to learn. The better informed they are the more likely they will be OK with this.

    It's always worth the try.

    So we have to e-mail Subulba-X to announce that the meeting is going to be official? Well, at least we're going to attempt the official-ness, right?

    Yeah, go ahead and email him with the details, so he can post it.
    I think he said a week in advance is the minimum time limit.

    Well, it's been e-mailed off since last night. So all should be good. If not, I'll hear back from him.
