To all my local Star Trek buddies:
With the holiday season rapidly approaching, I know people are going to be pretty busy soon. HOWEVER, I want to get in at least one good meetup gathering before the holidays hit in force. When planning these, the idea is to make it as accessible to as many people as possible. We want to make sure that the day and time and type of event are good for the maximum number of people. Remember, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, right?
Here are the planning points:
- What DAYS work for you over the next month?
- What TIMES work for you?
- What type of meetup? Movie night, meta chat, dinner, costume party (Halloween season is a great excuse), etc?
- What type of venue? My house? Someone else's house? A restaurant? A coffee shop? A pub?
- What areas are accessible to people? In other words, depending on where you live, you might be able to drive to Lawrence, but not Kansas City, or maybe you can get around Kansas City easily enough, but can't make it too far out of the city. But please, if you CAN drive somewhere and are willing to drive a short distance, consider it, just in case we have folks who can't travel as easily. We want to accomodate as many people as possible, and I'm personally willing to drive a distance if that means we can have more of our lovely GQMF's at the meetup. I live in Kansas City, but I know we've got at least two people in Lawrence, and I'm willing to drive out there.
Also - do we WANT to have a meetup coinciding with the release of the new movie on blu-ray? Who's ordering the blu-ray AND has a blu-ray player who might want to host a movie meetup for this?
And finally, you should be aware that there IS already a Star Trek fan group in Kansas City. That's the USS Stargazer group. They're having their Halloween party/movie night this Saturday at 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM. Would people in this group be interested in joining them? If so, I'll contact them and get details.
They also have monthly meetings, and the next one is November 28th. Shall we make first contact with them about a possibly alliance? :D
And finally, if you're interested in this and you haven't already joined kcmo_gqmf
, what the hell are you waiting for? Get over to that community and SIGN UP!!!
So... hailing frequencies open!
