View Full Version : Proposal to change monthly meeting day

05-11-2005, 08:41 AM
I am throwing this out there to see what kind of consensus I can get.
My proposal is to move the meeting to the 3rd Wednesday of the month instead of the last Wednesday of the month. I have a conflicting schedule (my wife's book club is on the last Wednesday of the month) and for me to come to the meetings, I have to bring my daughter along, who is usually tired by 7pm, plus my wife is getting kinda grumpy about me taking our daughter and keeping her up late. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif
So, let me know what you think either by saying yes or no to this proposal. I have already talked to a few of about this and you seem ok with the idea of moving the meeting. Plus if we have the other meeting the 1st Monday of the month, we would then have a 2-week gap between get-togethers, etc. I really enjoy coming to the meetings and being around fellow collectors, but I am not sure how much longer I will be able to attend since I want to keep my wife happy. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Other months that would be fine, but this month, the third Wednesday is the day many of us will be in line for the movie.

So....hopefully this would be something that goes into effect next month if we did it. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

05-11-2005, 01:34 PM
This would definately start next month if approved. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Although Joey could show up the 3rd Wednesday of this month since he isn't going to ROTS. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

05-11-2005, 04:27 PM
Yes, yes...Joey has made that abundantly clear!!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

05-12-2005, 09:22 PM
That's fine by me. Really the only day that doesn't work for me is the 3rd Thursday of the month. Other than that, I'm pretty open. However, weekends are always a crap shoot for me.

05-13-2005, 08:09 AM
3rd Wednesday is looking like a good day to meet guys!!!
Any more thoughts???

05-13-2005, 10:40 AM
3rd Wednesday a month ... cool with me.

05-13-2005, 10:55 AM
So the next two meetings will be Wednesday May 25, and then we'll switch to 3rd Wednesdays of the month, which would make the following meeting be on June 22.

Sound good to everyone?


05-16-2005, 01:12 PM
I thought that the meeting was this week, May 18th? Is it going to be the 25th? Thanks in advance.

05-16-2005, 01:15 PM
Also, I wanted to let everyone who is attending the Red Robin meeting to know that I have an extra set of Clone Troopers from Entertainment Earth that I need to sell (for cost of course) that I will be brining to the meeting. I bought a case and paid $325 (for 3 sets) and only need 2 sets. So, $108 total for all 4 sets in the white mailer boxes (mint). If anyone is interested, they can e-mail me here OR just wait until the meeting.

05-16-2005, 02:44 PM
Meeting will be the 25th of May. Next month is when we move to the 3rd Wednesday (6/15/2005). We didn't want to meet on the 18th of this month since a few of us will be going to ROTS that evening. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

05-16-2005, 02:46 PM
Just to make sure I am clear here. There are 5 Wednesdays in June (1, 8, 15, 22, and 29). If we stay consistent, then the 15th would be the 3rd Wednesday, not the 22nd. We would then meet again on July 20th, August 17th, September 21st, etc.

05-16-2005, 04:06 PM
Gads. To simplify - the 2nd to last Wednesday then?

05-16-2005, 04:45 PM
Let's see what Tom decides. I am up for the 2nd to last Wednesday as long as it's not the last Wednesday of the month. June had to be a difficult month. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif So let's just get the naming correct on the meeting time. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

05-17-2005, 07:40 AM
OK, the second to last Wednesday of the Month!!!
Same place-Red Robin in SouthCenter area.
Same time-7pm
Next get together is June 22...
See you guys in line at the show Wednesday!!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Wait a minute, we're still meeting on the 25th of THIS month, right?


05-17-2005, 04:43 PM
Ugg....my bad...again!
It would be foolish to keep all this Ep3 euphoria to ourselves for a full month. We have no choice but to meet this NEXT Wednesday.

I know many of us will be in line at the Cinerama Wednesday night! If we can, I say we try to group in as best we can...I can't imagine a better group to see the first showing with. If you guys still have my cell phone number from C3...use it! We'll be in the area (Seattle Cinerama area) at about 6ish of 7pm.

05-17-2005, 08:36 PM
6 or 7pm? I suppose I'll see you about 300 heads back. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif There are already 10 or 20 people out there now, and I'm sure each of them is saving 4 seats or so.

05-18-2005, 12:52 AM

Being June 25th. I'd recommend showing up ONLY if you want to discuss the movie as there will be spoilers a pleanty!

While I won't be at the midnight showing opening day, I will be seeing it in the afternoon on Saturday the 21st at the Cinerama.

06-16-2005, 01:04 PM
I thought I'd get a jump on this. So, we're meeting this coming Wednesday, June 22nd at 7pm at the RR at Southcenter, right?

06-16-2005, 01:49 PM
Sounds good to me. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

06-18-2005, 01:23 AM
I'll be there Joe!!!

06-18-2005, 03:01 PM
I'm not sure if I can make it, but I will if I can.

06-19-2005, 02:52 PM
Excellent! Maybe we can sit outside again if weather permits.

06-20-2005, 08:57 PM
Scratch that...flip it!
Sorry gang but there will be one less body at the meeting on Wednesday. I will be in Port Angeles for a bit visiting my Pop...sorry! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

06-22-2005, 04:19 PM
I'm back from school, but have to take a class locally during the summer. I just happen to have that class tonight right when the meeting is, so I guess I'm still gonna be missing out every time. Dang.

06-23-2005, 01:04 AM

Can we consider changing the meeting day for possibly Monday? Wednesday does not work seeing I work Graveyard and I start work at 9:30 pm. Not to complain, but if we don't maybe move the meetings I may not be able to attend. I sure look forward to them and I sure would miss meeting with you guys every month.
Any thought?

06-23-2005, 01:22 AM
I am up for any day that isn't the last Wednesday of the month. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

BTW my surgery went really well today and the pain medication is really good. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Hope everybody had a fun meeting tonight wish I could have been there.

06-23-2005, 03:20 AM
I also hope everybody who went had a good time. However, I'd vote against Mondays, at least this summer, because that class I mentioned is on Mondays and Wednesdays. The other days of the week are currently wide open, though.

Hope to see you guys soon!

06-23-2005, 11:57 AM
I got an email from Deanna yesterday and she was also voting for Monday nights. I'll contact her and see how Tuesdays work. Almost any day works for me as long as I have enough advance notice to clear my schedule.

Last night was good. Only 4 of us showed up so we sat in the bar. But we had a great time chatting until about 9 pm. Criz has a great collector's guide from Germany he brought for show. Excellent pictures and even better, it was pocket sized!

06-23-2005, 01:01 PM
I can make adjustments to my schedule. Mondays or Tuesdays work fine for me (as long as we don't change the time, 7 - 9 works perfectly for me).

We were only 4 last night, but it sure was tons of fun!

06-28-2005, 08:16 PM
Soo let's hear from the rest of the group...Josh, Chris?
What are your thoughts...?
Does Tuesday sound like the new day?

06-28-2005, 10:11 PM
I'm open most days Mon-Thurs.

06-29-2005, 02:03 AM
I'm sure I can make it given enough notice. This last month, changing the date didn't work for me, but next month hopefully I can make it work.

06-29-2005, 06:31 PM
Just to keep the discussion going ... Is Tuesday our new day? So, that would be the last Tuesday of each month, or the second to last Tuesday of each month?

06-29-2005, 07:16 PM
I guess to be consistant with all the current changes...the 3rd Tuesday would be the time. Sorry to be a pain in the ***** guys. Thanks for being flexable.

06-29-2005, 11:25 PM
3rd Tuesday...I will be there. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

07-08-2005, 11:32 AM
Just to make sure this is correct, we are meeting on the 19th of this month, correct? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

07-08-2005, 03:00 PM
Yes, the 19th.

And just so everyone is aware, I still have a full set of 48-50 up for grabs as well as an extra R2 and crispy Anakin. If no one takes them at the next meeting I'll just return them to Target.

07-08-2005, 03:06 PM
I will take the Bacara off your hands (#49), or would I have to get the whole set? I just collect clones in the 3 3/4" line.


07-08-2005, 04:02 PM
Just the Bacara is fine. I picked them up because you never know what will be hard to find and what won't. I got a set of 3 for me, and two more sets for whoever needed them. I'll bring them all to the meeting just in case, but I'll reserve a Bacara for you.

07-18-2005, 01:57 PM
Just a reminder so everyone sees. Meeting at RR tomorrow night (the 19th). See you all there. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

07-19-2005, 01:48 PM
I got the heads up from Chris that this meeting is happening tonight.

Hopefully other people know and come out. Changing the dates seems to have killed the attendance last time, but hopefully we can bring it back strong this month.

I'll be there. So will Chris, and hopefully my buddy John.

07-19-2005, 03:47 PM
I'll definitely be there, looking forward to it!

07-19-2005, 07:30 PM
Due to issues that are beyond my control (and energy to fix) I have decided to not attend the colletors meetings any longer. I hope to stay apart of the Rebelscum community though and look forward to staying in contact with most of you. Thanks for showing up to the meetings and enjoying this fun hobby with me! I hope the rest of you do so for months and hopefully years to come.
Kindest regards,
Tom Berges

07-20-2005, 01:03 AM
There were only about 6 of us this time but it was another outside table kind of night.

Here's hoping you come out to the next one.

07-20-2005, 02:22 AM
Tonight was a small turnout, but still had fun. Heard some great house stories from Josh. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Tom, hope things get better for you. Hopefully you can make it to the meetings in the future.

07-20-2005, 11:35 AM
Hey everyone,

Sorry for bailing out at the last minute for this meeting. On my way out of the parking garage I got a call from my wife letting me know that her father was taken to emergency care for severe abdominal pain. So I had to make a detour to Bremerton instead of attending the meeting.

After a lower body CAT scan and some blood work it appears he has an enlarged spleen and low white blood count. He wasn’t admitted to the hospital, but was given some meds to help with the pain.

So after a long night and little sleep I am back. I do plan on making it to the next meeting. Sorry for those of you who were expecting me to show up with some extra figures.

08-10-2005, 06:41 PM

Wanted to give you guys\gals a heads up on ROTS figs in your area. The Target at Factoria Mall got a shipment of 48-50 and many of the #6 Clone Trooper....there was a ton of each. Hope this helps.

Check out my sig, if you are in my area lmk and I can give you a lo down on where to hunt.

Stay Safe

08-10-2005, 11:58 PM
Well the third Tuesday of the month is coming up next week (the 16th). Do we want to meet then or push it out to the 23rd? Either is fine with me. And for those of you who I'm holding figures for, I still have them.

As for those keeping track, I just found out Monday that my father-in-law is fine. There was a scary 2 weeks where we thought he might have cancer, but his bone marrow tests came back negative. He's still a bit ill, but at least we know he doesn't have a fatal issue at the moment.

08-11-2005, 09:51 AM
Holy Smokes, Joe! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/shocked.gif I'm glad that all is well for the time being. My wife's family has had quite a few scares in the past with the Big C, so you are among friends here.

My vote is for the 3rd Wed. of the month. I usually have these days off so this would work the best for me considering my schedule.

08-15-2005, 10:44 AM
Just a reminder. The next collectors meeting is tomorrow at Red Robin Tukwila, 7pm.

08-15-2005, 04:48 PM
If the meeting is tomorrow, I will be there.
I did like the old time better, it was easier to remember. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif
