    Gee, there are a lot of opinions here...

    I'm going to have to side with Cat on the costuming issue. While I do enjoy a costumed charity event once in a while, it's not what I joined the group for; I joined to do social events with other Star Wars fans. It does seem to me that our main focus is on charity events (all of which are costumed). I love doing RPG, and I definitely want to do a book club once I get back in town. I noticed that when a few of you guys were listing non-costumed TFF events, some of these events were not TFF events (eg, Dustin mentioned Cat and Cheryl getting together and he and Frank going to a movie, and Mugen mentioned Order 66 meets (:confused:)) Anyhow, I think it would be good if we have more TFF-wide social activities, stuff that doesn't need much planning.

    There was also some discussion of retaining new members...I think a big part of getting people to come back is to make them feel welcome at the meetings, etc. In general I think the group is very welcoming on the boards (I remember feeling quite welcome when I first posted). At meetings, however, I think we (myself included) could improve in this area by paying more attention to the newcomers and trying to include them in our discussions.

    Im not going to pick apart anyones responses ,or get into a long a long debate. I am just going to say this. Last year was fun. The meeting and events were fun. Everytime I got together with any of you, it was fun. Just because a few people feel their amount of fun has decreased does not mean the entire fan force has lost direction. If the Fan Force was not fun, I wouldn't be coming back, and I don't think anyone else would either. Regardless of what anyone thinks, it is fun to the younger generation, Otherwise I dont think we would see Mike, Gabe, Antone, or Brandon again.

    it was a refresher of my joke at the meeting when Cat was describing her Emporer and Yoda Christmas scene just for levity.

    OK another thread has been started for meeting ideas and what nots please let us keep this about the voted and questions for the candidates for CR. We as a group have gotten off topic again.

    We do need to discuss the voting issues and how to vote as well as getting some nominations going.

    I am bowing out of the running for CR. This has nothing to do with the current controversy, but personal reasons, I would like to still serve as Event Coordinator if the position comes up for election or nomination.

    Im not fan enough of the other stuff in the group to give them as much attention as they deserve. I dont want to risk fracturing the group. Chis is more of an overall fan. Im not, I personlly dont think I would be in the group if it weren't for the costumed charity events. I will still be a member, and serve as event coordinator if the group will have me
    Even though I think I could do a good job as cr, I dont want to risk any lack of enthusiasm on my part for anything else to ruin anyones the enjoyment of the club.

    That has to be one of the most respectful things I've seen done for this group.

    Total selflessness for the greater good of the group as a whole. =D=

    Just to refresh my memory(and everybody else's)...
    ...Since Dustin has dropped out, that leaves only Chris running for CR, and Kat is the only one running for Secretary, right? And those are the only two positions we'll be voting on, right?

    After a lot of thought over the weekend, I find I must also agree with this statement.

    Off the top of my head I think these are all the position that are up for election:Costumed Event coordinator

    DSG liaison (I?m assuming this will eventually become a TFF liaison to any other group position)

    Secretary

    CR

    Librarian

    Historian

    We (I think) are going to see if a treasurer position is created

    I?d like to see a Public Relations (media) position created


    Which brings me to a point, can we nominate people now if they wish to run? If so I'd like to put my nomination is early.

    - Historian organizes photos from events and keeps our scrapbook up to date I nominate Michelle

    - Librarian runs the Two Suns Fan Force Library, which includes handling the book collection and bringing the books to each meeting for members to check out I nominate Mike

    Quite unclear as to Mike's response, "Why not?"

    Also, it seems unfair for the librarian to carry the all books to meetings, maybe a list and he/she can carry the requested books to meetings.

    My nominations
    DSG liaison Damian (I don't know if this is even up for a vote or it's will be absolved if we get a squad, in which case I?ll run for that also if it?s available)

    Secretary Kat

    CR (is it even realistic to nominate if nobody else runs?) Chris

    Librarian Mike

    Historian Dustin (or Michele I see them as a team)

    Costumed even coordinator Dustin

    Maybe new offices :

    Treasurer (if so I'd say) Cheryl (sp)

    Public Relations (media) Dustin

    Voice of reason Jack

    Official TFF "hang out" Galactic Empire/ToyBoxx

    Official Drink of the TFF Gatorade

    Official "signature" TFF costumed event "Reed park/hospital visit" on Halloween

    Official eatery In N Out

    If elected:

    Being the TFF Historian would be a lot of fun and would finally force me to organize my mountain-o-scrapbooking stuff!
