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.

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.


Thanks,
-Gary

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.

This would definately start next month if approved.

Although Joey could show up the 3rd Wednesday of this month since he isn't going to ROTS.

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.

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?

Thanks,
Chris

May Meeting

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.

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.

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.

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.
So let's just get the naming correct on the meeting time.

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.
Cheers,
Tom

6 or 7pm? I suppose I'll see you about 300 heads back.
There are already 10 or 20 people out there now, and I'm sure each of them is saving 4 seats or so.

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.

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?

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.

NEW PROPOSAL!!!!

Guys,
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?

I am up for any day that isn't the last Wednesday of the month.


BTW my surgery went really well today and the pain medication is really good.


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

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!

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!

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!

Does Tuesday sound like the new day?

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.

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?

I guess to be consistant with all the current changes...the 3rd Tuesday would be the time. Sorry to be a pain in the a$$ guys. Thanks for being flexable.

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.

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.

Thanks,
-Gary
