    Greetings, blokes.

    June 18th at Jahinie's.

    And I totally didn't forget that we scheduled this during the Expomart meeting. I mean, really... who could forget that? ;)

    Hopes some new folks can come to the meeting,
    Yours Truly

    I'm out of town that weekend for a wedding, so if that is the day, then I will see you all in July?

    I believe we already agreed it was the 18th. IIRC, Jim at Jahinie's already has us scheduled then.

    Greetings, blokes.

    After reflecting, I do believe you are correct, Sal. I now seem to recall scheduling it at the Expomart meeting.

    Is an idiot,

    Nah, you're not an idiot.

    I think we've all just been so excited over the premiere that we haven't thought of anything else in the last month.

    For those that won't be there, be sure to proxy nominate if you planned on nominating someone for office.

    Andy, you don't really have to bring anything. We'll probably spend some time talking about the movie, club nominations, future events, etc. Brian (Ben_Ethus) will post a meeting agenda containing topics to discuss and plan upon. If he can't make it to the meeting then one of our two VP's will preside over the meeting. After the agenda is taken cared of, then if time permits we'll chat some more or play games. I usually do a "show and tell" where I show what my latest toy and collectibles purchases are. (Others are more than welcome to bring items to show and talk about). Also, we have in all likelyhood have a raffle for something. We used to be diligent about having one at every meeting, then got away from it for awhile and are now doing it again. Some very cool things have been raffled off in the past.


    So to summarize:

    Just bring yourself, along with an expectation of having fun!

    dlocke, it is traditional to bring gifts for all the officers. Especially the secretary. Coffee, chocolate and Qui-Gon stuff in particular. ;)

    Or not. :D

    I'm going to try and make it for my fist meeting. I don't live close to Pittsburgh so I don't know where the meeting place is or how to get there. What time is the meeting?

    do you think we could start the meeting at 2 instead of 1? if not i can deal with it, but it will make it really hard.

    The reason for that particular start time is because we are now meeting in a place that closes much earlier than our previous meeting locations. Which is why it is also important for folks to BE ON TIME!

    Fear not, my former Padawan. Even if we start at 1PM, we will still be around at 2PM. :D

    1PM means 1PM. We have to start on time because of the place we are meeting at closes in the early evening. While its true Jim is nice enough not to throw us out at closing (6PM, I think) its still extremely rude of us to keep him late at work.

    Its understandable that not everyone can make it at the exact time, every time. Co-ordinating the schedules of so many people, especially those that have to drive such long distances and work weekends, is extremely difficult. We will certainly try to arrange things so 'important business' like nominations are held later in the meeting, when more folks have shown up and do the less important things, like show and tell and info that can be conveyed easily on the boards (like an update on the Picnic Pavalion and how much cash is in the account) can be done earlier in the meeting.


    PLEASE don't take this as anything other than trying to remind everyone of a much earlier agreement of no longer adjusting meeting times once they have been set in an attempt to make everyone happy. All that does is make everything worse. We all agreed, we would set the time and date that the majority of folks could make it. Folks show up when they can and will be welcomed for the time they can be there.

    And after the meeting we can always go get pie. Or go see ROTS again.

    Hmm, a little too serious this has become.

    We can say 1pm til we are blue in the face. But we know that won't happen. So why fight it? Let's just roll with it and let it pan out as it may. We'll shoot for 1pm, but can start when there's a reasonable amount of people present.

    Maybe this would be a good time to ask everyone if and at what time they will be at the meeting.

    I'll start:

    Attending meeting / Time of Arrival:
    Sal / 1pm
    Emily / 1pm

    Now just copy and paste, adding those who have posted before you to the list.

    -Sal

    Greetings, blokes.

    I'll be there at 1pm, plus or minus a few minutes, and we will definitely be out of there before 6pm. I don't believe we have a whole lot of business to discuss really (guess we'll see when I get the agenda out), aside from the nominations and photo thing and whatnot, so it shouldn't be a big thing to end on time before the store closes.

    As Chris noted, it's almost guaranteed that a number of us will float elsewhere afterward such that if anybody missed anything (which I can't imagine will be much), they can be brought up to speed real quick.

    No big thing.

    Has been going to bed late all week,
    Yours Truly

    Greetings, blokes.

    EM... Sounds cool. I'll look forward to seeing you there. And I must say I'm intrigued by your offer of a "gift."

    Although I will state in advance that if your gift ends up orchestrating our demise by strangling us with metal chains, I will be one not-so-happy blue ghostie... :p

    Doesn't want to go out like Jabba did,
