How was the raffle?
Outstanding! First round had some high quality stuff like MOC concept Grievous (my choice), MOC VC Kithaba (for the upcoming Skiff), Titanium/Hot Wheels, quite a few 3.75" and 6" recent clearance vehicles (Ski Speeder) and figures (in boxes), a custom diorama, 6" statues, etc. In addition to Grievous, I got a 6" Jyn and 6" C3PO statue.

Found that Jyn for $0.03 at Beaver Dam Walmart on the way to the meeting.
You missed the coolest raffle item: Stormtroopers Beyond the Armor (even had the reproduction paperwork envelope with Kenner Stormtrooper card back)

Cool! I'll make sure not to miss the next one. I have a few nice items I was going to bring as well.

Glad you guys had a good turnout for the meeting... I was in Chicago for the NRA trade show, eating myself into a diabetic coma... I'll be sure to make the next meeting...

Hello all of my fellow Star Wars Fans. The time for the next meeting is upon us and it is going to be one fun ride. The next meeting is going to be on Saturday July 21st starting at 11am at David's house in Madison. The address is 49 Craig Avenue, Madison Wisconsin. We will be in David's backyard gathering for a cookout. Please bring a $10.00 contribution for the food and snacks and beverages and also any lawn chairs you may have. David is going to do all of the shopping so we can just pay him directly at the meeting. I will bring a table for the raffle items. If an Milwaukee guys want to ride with me I have room for 3 other people comfortably. After the meeting and eating we are all invited to hangout at our newest member Chad Peak's house and explore his Star Wars basement. Chad has a place in Madison that I do not yet have the address for but I'm sure we can all caravan down to his spot after we have had our fill in the sun. Hope everyone is able to make this one as it will be a day filled with Star Wars conversation and good friends. Till then everyone take care and May the Force be with you!

Hey, just saw this. I have to drive show to Chicago on Saturday to play some roller derby. I'll try to stop by but no need to plan for me for food!

Looks like an 80% chance of rain.

It is an outdoor event at my daughter's house, so here is the back up plan:

The Cafe inside the Hy-Vee grocery store is usally half empty and can accomadote a lot of people. People can buy ready to go food at the store and bring it in, or order from the cafe restaurant style.

Hope you can return all the food you bought for the BBQ. Maybe you waited until tonight?

So is the location switched to Hy-Vee for sure? Or is this still a fall back choice if rain starts?

I don't understand. I was sitting right next to you in the Hy-Vee cafe when I posted this. After everyone arrived, we left for Chad's house. Your post confuses me.
After I got home from another great meeting, I thought it funny that you posted "100% hy vee cafe" and we ended up having the meeting entirely at Chad's house.

I thought that you already knew that I had posted that the meeting was at the Hy-Vee, as I told you that I did, looked you in the eyes, and you nodded your head and said Uh ha. I posted that specifically at your request (which was a good one). I don't see how it was a surprise.

When Andrew and I walked in you seemed visiably upset...and no greeting or small talk, just right in to how vague my "80%" post was about where the meeting would be. I was taken aback your your intensity. I thought Sean had changed the Invitation on Facebook the night before (which Sean and I talked about). He didn't - but I didn't know that until I asked you for a moment and a chance to check on my phone. No change of the invitation (which I cannot edit myself). My original post was there ( 80% chance that the location would move to Hy-Vee if it was still raining), and I had forgot to post an update (100%) which I could have done.

I made a mistake, and I feel bad, and am sorry. When I woke up Saturday morning and saw rain by me locally, I should have posted "100% Hy-Vee" on both Facebook and Rebelscum. I was running late (alarm), and didn't check online. I thought that my personal texts would cover everyone (I didn't have your #, so Sean said he would text you - I didn't know you didn't use a cell phone). I'm sorry. I apologized to you then, and I apologize again now. You are right. The first post was vague. There was no follow up post. You don't have a cell phone, so you didn't get a text. You were obviously frustrated (I suppose that I would be too). But I don't see how taking a swipe at me with your post makes things any better for anybody though. You were right next to me when I posted that the meeting place would be at Hy-Vee (at your request) for those still on the road. I don't believe seeing that post after the meeting was a surprise.

Well, we did spend an hour at the Hy-Vee before departing for Chad's house, during which you and I had a discussion about how you don't like cell phones. I do agree that Chad's house was much better.

Yes, I knew you posted that message. I thought I was just being funny when I posted: "or maybe not" because we didn't end up at Hy Vee after your post. I know I can come across as grumpy, when I'm just distracted, waking up, or nervous/introverted. I really wasn't upset. I'm sorry if I came off that way. I really was trying to be friendly.

Thanks for posting this. I totally read your post wrong. I thought it was a jab at me (and my mistakes), rather than genuine humor. I guess misinterpreation is a liabilty of the writen word. I will strive to do better in the future.
