For those of you wishing to be an active member in the Richmond, Virginia Fan Force: I would like to push everyone to pick a date in the month of July for everyone interested in the group to meet and have coffee. [hr] Details on my plan: 1) Time and Date: Have all interested parties post between today (6-22-04) and the end of the month (Wednesday, June 30th--a week from tomorrow) at least one date they are available for about 1-2 hours. Before posting your date and time availability, please make sure that it meets the following criteria: *Weekday times between 6.30pm and 9pm (to accommodate those that work) *Saturdays between 11am and 10pm *Sundays between 12noon and 7pm (some people I am sure would like time to go to church and be home early to rest for the next day) Please make sure that when you post, that you include times that you are available to meet or to suggest a time if you are open all day. 2) Location: I kind of figured that the location midway for the most people would be the Stony Point Mall. If you are unsure of where this is, please let me know and I can get you directions. It is maybe 15-20 minutes from me and should be about the same for most others. If you would like to suggest another location more suitable for coffee and chatting, please do so. 3) Who's invited: Anyone who has an interest in Star Wars in any way. Whether you post, or not. 4) The reason for this: Well frankly because we keep saying we are going to do something and never do. Also, because I think that if we were to all get together and hang out, we would be more apt to do other things. 5) What to bring to the gathering: Yourself, a friend if you like, money for snacks/drinks, any ideas on making the group more active, and any activity you would like to see us participate in (Don't forget that the third and final Star Wars movie is less than a year away and if we want to do anything for it, we should be planning!) If you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc. please either contact me or post within the thread. REMEMBER: you only have until next Wednesday to post your dates and times!
