    August 9th is our second annual picnic, at South Park. Rox told me that he has reserved a pavalion and will be getting directions to everyone 'soon'

    But, no reason why we cant start some planning for this now . . .

    Last year we did a 'covered dish' thing, where everyone posted what they would bring. I'm thinking that worked well, so no reason not to do it again. Please post here what you plan to bring.

    How's about paying for the park pavalion through the SWAP account. I'm fairly certain that this was discussed, but I can't remember with whom or when. So, if there are no objections, that's what we'll do.

    It was suggested a while ago that we have the Third Interclubbal Tourney at the picnic. Tourney play does take a couple of hours, but if no one objects, why not?? Those interested in participating in the Epic Duels Interclubbal Tourney, please post here that you will be participating. Remember, 'enterence fee' is $5, with the money collected going to the SWAP account.

    I believe that it was the Jedi 1966's that brought the volleyball set last year . . . could they bring it again this year??

    All other suggestions and planning commentary most welcome! Oh, and for those that were not around last year, this event is a 'family' event. Family & friends are more than welcome!

    I'll bring some cole slaw and some pop (diet vanilla coke!)

    oh, and don't forget your lightsabers! Much fun was had last year 'dueling'!

    I'll be there with Em as well. I'll be playing the tourney and have something special that I'll be unveling at the BBQ for the tourney. As well, I will have another game to unveil there as well. Let's just say that it's safer than saber fighting but is not a board game. Oh, I almost forgot, I'll have a "Special" game as well. The only thing I'll let you in on about this one is this (and it the most obvious and biggest clue here) ....know your Star Wars music....

    We'll bring a dish of some sorts. I think it had been mentioned that we would make a list of what was needed and pass that around at the July meeting. This way noone brought seconds/extras of something and we would have a bigger selection of food. In any event, we'll bring something, I'm just going to wait to post what, until either others post what their bringing or we get it nailed down at the July meeting.

    Don't forget folks that voting for cub officers takes place at this event. Good luck to all the nominees. (Nominations will be taking place at the July meeting)

    I'm planning on being ther if I can get directions. Maybe I'll bring some friends. Don't know yet. As long as no one is on a diet, I'll bring some tasty desserts. (yes, more than one) I also have three aluminum lightsabers and an 8 foot double bladed saber I will bring.

    Is there still going to be a sign up list of things to bring to the pivnic? If not me and abbey will probably just bring a few cases of pop or something.

    Gretings, blokes.

    I don't think it ever got mentioned, but when does this crazy thing start? Noonish?

    At any rate, I just now made an appointment for the phone folks to come and (hopefully) fix my jacked-up phone line that morning, so I'll swing by whenever they get done.

    I intend to take part in the Epic Duels gaming tourney, so if you could wait to start that until I get there, that'd be faboo.

    My apartment is falling apart around me,

    Since no official gathering time was ever set, I'm seizing power to suggest one :D


    Meet at the pavalion in South Park around 11 AM. this will give us time to unpack the food, heat up the grill and make us some lunch!

    I'm also going to suggest that the Third Inter-clubbal Tourny begin at 3PM. That gives us some time before hand to eat, play some volleyball, bang the plastic sabers together, enjoy Sal's various suprises, and be harrassed by the resident phototerrorist before we settle down to the serious business of fighting like maniacs over possession of the Interclubbal Trophy.

    Hows that sound to everyone??

    11:00? That sounds really early why not make it for around 1 that still gives us plenty of time to unload and light the grill.

    because the Tourny takes a couple of hours to complete . . .

    A 11 AM start time doesn't mean that everyone HAS to be there at 11 AM. those that want to, be there, for those 'late risers' wander in whenever you feel like :)

    Greetings, blokes.

    I'm horrible at guess-timating quantity, so how many bags of ice do you guys think I'll need to pick up?

    1 + 1 = something,

    3 maybe? Assuming that they are the regular sized bags that costs abour $1.50.

    Not 100% certain if I can make it yet, so that is why I haven't said I would bring something.
