    So since we have a couple of potential new members as well as stories to tell from Comic-con and CV, it really is high time to have a meeting. We also have a few birthdays to celebrate. :D This month the best weekend for me would be Sept 18 or 19. Let me know if this works for you. If nobody has suggestions of events, we will just go back to chilling at the mall. So shout out and let me know what you think.

    Either day might work for me, it depends on which day the 501st holds their annual picnic. Hopefully they will pick the date pretty soon (they have a poll up).

    I think the mall has been played out... We definitely should do something different. Vegas comes to mind... ^^ but that's rather infeasible.

    Lemme run through a few possible options that would be applicable for everyone:
    Dave & Busters
    City Beach
    Movie
    bowling
    beach! (barring weather...)
    Night Life at Cal Academy (drinking in a science musuem! FUN! but it's only on Thursday nights...)
    picnic and/or BBQ

    Not so applicable to all:
    Day long lightsaber combat clinic for no good reason other than to freak out the public. ^^
    Jackson Arms ^^
    Wine Tasting (I'm in need of a trip to Ravenswood for their Moscato Legaro...)
    Casino
    some kind of uber easy sport


    Unlikely to nearly everyone except the slightly crazy:
    Establish the Jedi Order
    Establish the Sith Order
    Recreate the Mos Eisley Cantina for the sole purpose of drinking there
    Recreate the Executor... life size
    Figure out lightsaber tech... just because ^^


    I mean this is the Bay Area, always something going on somewhere...

    I'll have to see how other things go with my schedule. My dad's birthday is that week, and I don't know yet what our family plans are for that weekend. Hopefully I'll be able to do both.

    In terms of location, could we do it outside of the city proper? It would make traffic/driving and parking a lot easier. :)

    I can do either day. Have to take BART in, so would like a location close to a BART station.

    I had an idea this morning. We talked a while back about doing an amusement park activity this summer. Summer is almost over and the amusement park activity sort of fell by the wayside earlier. So how about making the Sept meeting an outing along those lines? We could do a group trip to the Boardwalk, Great America or someplace like that.

    Alternatively, if people don't feel like doing rides, I still think it would be nice to do some sort of summer fun activity outdoors and take advantage of the last month of summer.

    Haven't been to GA in ages, that'd be cool. The water park last year was cool too but it's been a cooler than usual summer so harder to predict a really good sunny day. SC is a lil far for outing/meeting.

    Aren't there like a bunch of fairs and such coming up/going on?

    Hey, the Ren Faire would be fun. I could go for that. Either of these weekends would be nice. 2 for 1 admission is a great deal. Pirates would also be interesting.

    Renfaire sounds like fun!! I would need a ride, tho. Let me go check out ticket prices before I commit.

    Hey, like tickets are $25 for one day, so I wonder if the 2 for 1 tickets are only $12.50? I can swing that!

    Good question. I think it's time for a poll, 'cause that's easier than scrolling through replies here. :p

    Thanks for doing the poll Alison. I personally can't do the weekend of Sept 25 since I have other commitments that day but it looks like the other weekend is winning in the poll anyway. ;)

    As to meeting, usally Saturdays are okay.
    However, not really interested in RenFaire.
    Also, prefer either SF or Tanforan.
    Thank you.

    Alright, 19th, I say we have a light meeting. Nothing official or major, just a quick briefing and catch up. Is someone printing out those 2 for 1 voucher things? As stated before if there is an odd number I'll bite the bullet and pull out. I got Rogue Squadron business in SJ to take care of regardless.

    I'm sorry, but I won't be able to make it either. I have some family stuff going on right now that has to take priority, and also some commitments originally set for Sat night might be moving to Sun afternoon.

    I hope everyone has fun!
