We had a great time promoting the new Star Trek: Into Darkness movie at the Megaplex 13 theaters in The Junction. One of the best parts was meeting all of the various Star Trek fans that came out to see the movie. There were a lot of people in uniform and a lot of interested people who stopped by the booth. The life-sized action figure box resulted in a lot of fun photos. We even had the Ogden Standard-Examiner come by to profile us in an article (which will be added to our In The News section soon).
So to all of those interested Star Trek fans who are now reading this website, welcome. We made this website for our members and possible members to find out more about our free Star Trek fan club. We have been a club since 1996. You can read about some of our past in our History section. We have had a wide variety of Past Activities and Upcoming Events (we are always looking to try something new). Our Community Service is also something that we are very fond of promoting. We are very proud of our Intrepid class starship and it’s Namesake. What really makes our club a family is our Crew. We are a founding chapter of the Seventh Fleet, our parent organization. We also get along with a lot of other Star Trek/Sci-Fi groups and proudly display the gifts we’ve received in our online Trophy Case. Besides this website, you can also interact with us on our Facebook page or on our Yahoogroups. If you have any questions that are not on our FAQ, you can Contact us and we will be more than happy to answer them. If you are ready to Join, you can fill out a membership application and we will let you know when the next USS Ticonderoga meeting will be. Welcome aboard.
After two months of trying to find an alternate location for the USS Ticonderoga monthly meeting, we are finally returning to the Weber County Library-Main Branch. For the past two months the city has booked up the library space that we have normally used. So this Wednesday we are back at 25th and Jefferson in Ogden. We have a LOT to discuss. The upcoming movie promotion. Our CONduit room party at the end of the month. The just announced Salt Lake Comic Con (with Jonathan Frakes) that will be in September. So we will be talking and deciding on a lot of stuff. Please be there and feel free to bring friends. We will be going to dinner after the meeting (to be decided at the meeting). Looking forward to seeing everyone.
So we are finally glad that warmer weather is here. It has been way too cold for the past several months. So we want to celebrate the warm weekend coming up by holding a Welcome Spring BBQ on Saturday, April 27th. It will be held at the home of Captain Stark in Clearfield and run from 2:00pm to 6:00pm. Bring your own meat and a dish to share. We will be playing various games and videos during this event.
Also a quick reminder, if you can still help donate to the Seventh Fleet MS Walk team that will also be held on Saturday. This is just one of many community service projects happening in the fleet.
Hey everyone. April is now upon us and it looks to be a very busy month. We’ve got several big ship, fleet and community events coming up that we need to plan for. And to do that we need to have our monthly USS Ticonderoga meeting. As with last month we will NOT be at the Weber County Library because they booked it for county events. So on Wednesday, April 10th we will be meeting at the home of Captain Stark in Clearfield. Also if you have talked with Kimbra about your CONduit costume, please bring the fabric to the meeting.
With the new Star Trek: Into Darkness movie coming out soon, several magazines are prepping their upcoming issues to celebrate the event. Star Magazine reached out to the Seventh Fleet and asked if a representative would be willing to be interviewed. Admiral Carl Stark was asked to represent the Fleet and an interview was set up. We have been told that the interview will now be published in the March 27th (Wednesday) publication by Star Magazine. The Star Into Darkness Special will have 200 photos, special interviews and various Star Trek previews. Star Magazine sent us a copy of the cover to share with everyone as well. Let us know what you think of the interview.
This is a heads up to everyone. The Weber County Library had our rooms booked up for the next two months. So the March monthly meeting of the USS Ticonderoga will be at the home of Captain Stark in Clearfield. The meeting is still on Wednesday, March 13th and it will be at the same time (7:00pm) and will end about the same time since it is still a school/work night. Please bring your friends and show-n-tell items. We are also doing some additional planning for our CONduit room party.
This Saturday, March 9th, is the anniversary date of the USS Ticonderoga as a club. We originally started as the chapter-in-training USS Euphrates on this date in 1996. Since we all join fan clubs to have fun, we decided to celebrate by watching various Star Trek parodies and blooper reels. We want to laugh with our friends and Star Trek. At 6:00pm we will meet at the home of Captain Erica Stark and continue to watch funny videos until we get tired. Bring your own drinks and some snacks to share.
A word from Captain Stark: The Seventh Fleet is putting together a team for the upcoming MS Walk in Salt Lake City on Saturday, April 27th. It is being assembled by Lt. Commander Russell Boltz from the PCU Essex. His email with the details is posted below. If you can help out by volunteering or donating, please do so at the links below.
Two friends of mine have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Since then, it has been my mission to get in shape, to live a healthy lifestyle, and to do something about MS now. That is why I am walking in Walk MS 2013http://goo.gl/KRCPB>on April 27th at the Gateway Mall with Starfleet Command’s Seventh Fleet http://www.seventhfleet.org>.
MS interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body and stops people from moving. Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms vary from person to person. One person may experience fatigue and numbness, while another may
experience dizziness and have loss of balance. Local Walk MS events are connecting communities to end MS forever. This event raises critical funds to support local programs and cutting-edge research. Your participation puts us closer to realizing our promise to STOP MS in its tracks, RESTORE lost function and END MS forever. Ending MS means no one will receive an MS diagnosis again. Every step counts. Every dollar helps. Every connection matters.
This year, I have pledged to raise at least $250 to move us closer to a world free of MS. Please support my fundraising efforts. Your donation will help the National MS Society provide award-winning programs and services for those affected by MS.
$35 — Could assist self-help groups in supporting people affected by MS in our community.
$65 — Could fund wellness programs, aimed at treating the mind, body and spirit.
$120 — Could help pay for a physical therapy session to manage MS symptoms by enhancing strength and mobility.
$200 — Could help fuel our cause to help influence change by engaging elected officials to make multiple sclerosis a national priority.
$400 — Could help fund a researcher working towards a cure.
Making a donation is easy! Visit my personal page at http://goo.gl/KRCPB and click on the “Donate to Russell!” button. If
you prefer to donate by check, please make your check payable to the “National MS Society” and mail it to me at 333 Roosevelt Ave / Salt Lake City, UT 84115-1519.
I am walking with my team, Starfleet Command’s Seventh Fleet (www.seventhfleet.org), a local Star Trek Fan Association. We are always open to new walking team members and fan club members. Help us promote MS awareness by participating with us. If you are not able to walk, consider volunteering for a few hours or raising funds as a virtual participant.
