    Obi Wan Toddi & I have had a conversation tonight on how best to heal the rift that SAFF has. We are both on the same page as in we can't undo any of the events of the past & think that we need to move forward with a strong united SAFF & no good will come with bickering. I think enough poo has been thrown around in the last few weeks & it's time to come together.

    We'd like to have a fun dinner with ALL members of SAFF who can possible attend this. Obviously some can't because of prior commitments but please know that everyone is welcome & no one is excluded.

    Because there wasn't a clear direction for dates & where's any when's, we'll have it at the usual haunt of Primo's & I hope that everyone who possibly can will get behind the idea of having a nice meal together.

    This isn't an intstant fix, but it is a step in the right direction I think. People will still feel a little funny I expect but everybody needs to be respectful of one another. That's not to much to ask I think ;)

    There is of course our two returning SAFFers to welcome home too. LTG & KOOKY

    So, I ask again, who's up for some SAFF healing ?

    This isn't working out how I had hoped. How about a date change to Friday the 21st Nov 7pm. Does that work better?

    Sorry, cant do week nights at all. It's hard for most to understand, but my daughter comes first. She has a dream and when she is committed to training 5-6 times a week, including weight and dry land training, I have to do it. It's where my life circulates right now and will do so for a few years I suspect. Friday has me at Art classes for the boy till 6pm and then swimming till 9pm. Hubby doesnt get home till after 7 these days so is no help at all. It's just the way it is for me.

    I am assuming then that Saturday is the day still? That Friday is out?

    Also, do we want to start an agenda? This way all ideas/ thoughts are aired and not forgotten, particularly those from people who can't make it?

    ie, AD if you have anything that needs to be said, to either post here for inclusion or pass onto someone going.

    Agenda
    Direction SAFF is heading...

    maybe staying with Saturday's the best, was just looking for maximum attendance :)

    edit: we'd prefer this dinner to be an occasion for people feel positive about SAFF again. This may possibly be bad timing for bringing up issues. whilst not trying to sweep any issues under the carpet, both sides for want of a better word see things differently but we have a clear common goal & that is to see SAFF heal, strong & united again. Sometimes it's better to agree to disagree, we can't change things from the past but if both parties want to bury the hatchet (& not in someone's head :p) then that seems sensible to Toddi & myself.

    Should be able to swing by to say hello to all, but not %100 sure if dinner is on the cards (a prior dinner invite may take precedence).

    so when are we going to have an "air your differences out" meeting??

    there are issues among members that are out there and we cant just sweep them under the rug!!
    if we keep going on like nothing is happening, it will just drive people further apart or worse... leave.
    i still think a sit down meeting is needed and that was the whole purpose of this Cafe Primo dinner..... now it just seems like its a case of lets forget the problems and just have fun.... and the problems keep sitting in the background.

    i have met a few more people that are keen (real) star wars fans and i now hesitate to tell them about SAFF because of the problems we are having within our own ranks.

    this still need to be addressed!!!

    i am sorry but this is how i feel about this situation.
