    since vader hasn't shown up yet I say we aim for the 15th and adjust the date as nessecary depending on when we get him. If Terry get's him on or after Saturday we get to have him at the picnic!

    Greetings, blokes.

    Terry received him the other day apparently, and we'll be able to hold onto him until the picnic at least, which should simplify things a bit.

    If folks still want to bop around to different areas of the city with him to take shots, I reckon that be up to Terry, since he's the one holding Vader.

    Only took two years,

    Sorry to hear about your car. Are you okay? Good luck with the insurance claims. Are you going to have to get a new car or can the old one be repaired?

    This Sunday, the 15th. Sigh, no can do. Already have plans.

    Could we do it next sunday, the 22nd? Yeah, its the day after the picnic, but it would also be more notice.

    Or what about during the week, in the evening. Doesn't get dark until 7:30 or 8.

    I'm not sure about the car yet. There is considerable damage to the front end. I'm ok, I have a lower back strain though, thank god I had my seatbelt on. On the bright side Ginger is getting a Jeep Cherokee today so atleast I'll be riding in style. But it sucks having no car...

    Greetings, blokes.

    I have to go back home this weekend and will be coming back Sunday, though I don't know if I'd be back in time for a photo op. I wouldn't bank on it.

    Sorry,

    We took the 'official' photo at the picnic. However, we are going to take some extra photos to send with it (many groups have done this)

    The final photo shoot will meet at 4:30 (be on time, please) in the Carnegie Science Center parking lot on Weds. Aug 25. Please wear 'Pittsburgh Gear' or SW wear.

    Have fun without me folks. I work until 5pm M-F. I wouldn't be able to make it until almost 6pm, since I'd have to take the bus from work. That is unless someone would be willing to pick me up. (I wouldn't need a ride home, just a ride there) Again though I can't leave work before 5pm. I'd like to be in this shot since I got to the picnic too late to be in the official one.

    If someone can pick me up please post here.

    Thanks.

    Greetings, blokes.

    I'm unfortunately not going to be able to make it to the photo shoot. I have to drive all over creation after work doing some final "moving errands," which is a total bummer. :(

    Unhappy he can't make it,

    Hey guys it is possible for em to drop the vader off to someone today? I'm getting the chance to work overtime tonight and really need the money. Call me on my cell or PM me until 3PM to make arrangements. Is anyone actually coming now?

    I want to but still need a ride.

    I get out of work at 5pm. I'm in Oakland, but could meet someone downtown. I'd get there about 5:25pm.

    If noone is participating tonight, would it be alright to move the date?

    I'd really appreciate the opportunity to be in the photo. Saturday is my birthday (35) and I'll be downtown anyway that day (FREE health convention at the David H. Lawrence CC), so if we do change the date, how about then?

    Terry if you want and can drop it off to me, you know where I work. (Give me a buzz if you want.) Besides that would ensure me the opportunity to be in the pic.

    If someone wants to set something up this weekend that's fine with me. Though I work the day shift the rest of the week and someone would have to come get Vader off of me. It has to be sent out to the next stop on Monday though no matter what.

    Hmmm, no replies, so I guess no get together this past weekend.

    Unfortunately I didn't check the boards Weds before heading out to the Science Center. The twins, Josh and I were there. Josh had read the boards, which was lucky for us or we wouldn't have known what was going on.

    Ah, well. I even had found a pickle pin and a Heinz ketchup pin.

    Since there was no photo shoot, we decided to go to Station Square for dinner before I had to go to Western Region and Tina and her friend had to go to the Hanson concert. (again, nice tattoo Tina)

    The misadventure continued when Stacie and I were caught behind a big accident and sat there while it was cleared for about a half hour. Since there was no way we could make it to Station Square before everyone had to be elsewhere, we called and said we couldn't come. Stacie and I then drove around Pittsburgh for another half hour, completely failing to find East Carson street until we called my sister for directions.

    Finally arriving, Stacie went 'undercover' prentending to be a college student considering a career in teaching, so she could sit in on the Union meeting.

    I'm wondering how the evening went for Josh and Tina.
