The old one is nearing 100 posts, so I'm starting this over. LOL Anyway, OK, so we seriously need to decide on a meeting place. It's obvious that not everyone is going to be able to come for various reasons, so we need to try and accomodate as many as possible. And we have to find an indoors place soon because it's 90 degrees outside and it's going to be hard to enjoy ourselves if we're all slowly being broiled. And I doubt many of us will be willing to sit in Cherokee park in the middle of winter. Someone suggested having additional meetings in the afternoon, and I like that because I'd much prefer to meet in the afternoon, however, I'm really not in favour of splitting up the group. You know? I'd really like for all of us (as many as possible) to get together in one place as often as possible. I wish we could've done something for the 4th of July, but it didn't even dawn on me until last night. Oh well. Next year for that. Basically, I've been online and on the phone all day trying to find meeting places and I found the perfect place... sadly it's rather... um... pricey. :: So that's out. Unless we wanted to takes monthly dues. We're going to need a place that will accomodate about 30-50 people right? Sheesh this is difficult. Since L-ville is a relatively small city, we don't have a good community centre that hosts free (or really cheap) meeting places. So, I think that for the next meeting, which I'm assuming is still on the 20th (or has that been changed?), will either have to be at the Waterfront or back in the park. One of the things that we'll have to discuss is where we can find a permanent meeting place - we have to find one otherwise there's really no point in meeting at all because we'll never be able to establish ourselves as a 'real' fan force. I don't mean to sound mean or pushy but I really want to get this thing off the ground and running! It's been a dream of mine to hang out with other Star Wars nerds! Since all of the games and stuff are at the Waerfront on the 20th, I guess the best choice at the moment is back at Cherokee... which kinda sucks because it's hot and I have allergies. LOL! But that's OK, I'll suffer for you all!
