    Ok all, we have had 2 meeting that were a ton of fun, we need one more teeny meeting to be official!

    I don't know about you lot, but I want us to be official before I've been at the JC for a year! So, we have til Sept 6 to come up with a meeting idea and get together!

    I do have some ideas, but since i live in Illinois, they are mostly Illinois based.

    Ideas:
    1) Picnic at Long Acre Park in Belleville

    2) Ice Skating/ Roller Skating at the numerous places that are available around here (the ice rink is in Belleville, Fun Spot is in Belleville, Funtown USA is in Pontoon Beach which is near Granite City)

    3) Movie! No, I don't know what movie, and the only theaters I go to are the O'Fallon 15 (in O'Fallon) and St Clair 10 (in Fairview Heights)

    4) Hiking at Pleasant Ridge Park in Fairview Heights. I suppose we could do that along with the picnic, but that's up to you.

    5) Mall Meeting like our last two, we could meet up in a mall and just sit around. I suggest either St Clair Square in Belleville or Union Station in St Louis.

    6) Zoo ok, yeah, that's in St Louis

    7) Botanical Gardens also in St Louis

    8) The Arch in St Louis, and hey, why not? it's there.

    9) Arcade! I know you all were talking about one in St Louis, and I'm sorry, but I can't remember what it's called, but I do know there is one in the St Clair Square Mall.

    10) Six Flags this ones a long shot, but it is nearby, so I thought I would mention it.

    Transportation:
    This will probably be an issue, as many of you have noticed, I keep asking that meetings be planned near a metrolink station. This is simply because I dislike driving in St Louis.

    If a meeting is planned away from a station, it would be appreciated if someone on that side of the river picked up those of us who used metrolink. This goes for meetings on the Missouri side and Illinois side.

    For those who are brave enough to drive to the final destination, directions will be provided if needed. MapQuest is a beautiful thing.

    Misc:
    All other ideas are welcome. So are opinions on where the meeting should be held.

    Notes:
    I will be hunting down anyone I know of who lives in the St Louis area so we can get their opinions.

    And Steph, I'm sorry if I'm stepping on your toes here, but I wanna be official!

    I think I'm speaking for a lot of people when I say "It's about time." :D :D

    I think the day St. Louis become official should be declared a national holiday. :D


    Official at last, official at last,
    Thank the maker, we're official at last.

    and once we have a basic idea of what we are doing we can deside on a date...but me personally, I think Six Flags sounds like it could be a blast! :) But any of the othere ideas are peachy too

    Six Flags would be awesome, but expensive for those without season passes. Of course, that's not a problem for me. The problem for me is getting there. :p

    Ice skating would be great, IMHO. USISC Fairview would be good for us based in Illinois.

    Six Flags sounds good to me, though I'm willing to bet a lot of people wouldn't be able to, so any of the others could be fine too. I think this should be decided by the people who have trouble making meetings based on locations. Location isn't so much a problem for me as is scheduling.

    Location has been a bit of a sticking point.

    Hopefully that part will get easier once we're official ;)

    And yes, Six Flags sounds like a blast, but we have to be realistic. Not everyone will be either to A) afford it or B) get there. Although we could plan that as a "We've been official for a year party" ;)

    Sebulba :p
    Jurist a holiday sounds like fun, think you can really get that done? ;) :p
    fishi even though you may not be able to go, feel free to offer ideas :)
    Son_of_Suns hopefully we can schedule a time when as many of us can go as possible :)

    i think that they all sound great, six flags might be a little hard because of cash for some people, but my step-mom has a bunch of tickets that say if someone has a season pass that we can get like, i think it was 12, people in for 12 bucks. i think that my help out a lot.

    but any of them sound good to me.

    ps
    its 12 bucks per person

    A picnic would be good. Saturday or Sunday, but what weekend. I already have one or two weekends booked for August. The zoo is also a good idea, since most people know where it is located. Better yet a picnic near the zoo.

    The zoo/picnic sounds good to me. Then again, anything involving monkeys sounds good to me.
