And a special welcome to those finding us from FanX! I hope you all had a great time, and have recovered from the madness that is a sci-fi convention.
We have a lot of info to get out, so I’ll keep things as succinct as possible.
First off, for you department chiefs – remember that this Saturday, April 26th, is the senior officers’ meeting, this month held at the Prettyman/Lewis home, at 2 pm. Contact me for the address if you haven’t been there before. Also, if you are going to be unable to attend, please either send a representative with a report, or send me your report directly. Several of us are looking at going to a roller derby game in Ogden afterwards, and anyone that wants to is welcome to join us.
Second, for May, remember that our activity will be taking place before the monthly meeting.
Activity details: Saturday, May 10 – Rocket Launch/Kite fly/Picnic, Ellison Park, Layton, 12 noon until we’re done.
Ellison Park is at the west end of Hill Field road. Be sure to bring a kite to fly, a rocket to launch, a picnic (if you wish), plus chairs or blankets, sunscreen, and water. We will have the banner up, and, if you have either a Tico shirt or the new fleet shirt, please wear it.
Meeting details: Wednesday, May 14 – BYOM Barbeque, Central Park, Clearfield, 7 pm. (Meetings at the Roy library auditorium will resume in June.)
This meeting is bring your own meat & drinks, and a dish to share. The ship will provide plates/napkins/utensils, and charcoal for the grill. Remember to bring any show-and-tell items, and your convention stories.
As an aside, if you want to purchase a fleet shirt, they are still available, though in limited quantities. Sizes are adult medium through 3XL, and the shirts are $15.00 each. We are looking at adding a Tico design to the backs of the shirts. (If you had a chance to see them at the con, the USS Rendezvous had added the shuttle and ship to the backs of their shirts.) Contact myself or Lt. Dave Stock if you wish to purchase a shirt.
On our long-range sensors, we have the Weber county library event on June 7, from 1-5 pm at the Ogden branch. We will have a booth, and will need people in costume/uniform to mingle for photo-ops. Any sci-fi and fantasy costumes are welcome, just be sure they are kept at a G or PG rating.
That will cover us for the next several weeks. We’ll have a game day or two in May, and as soon as we have those dates set, you’ll find the info here, on Facebook, and in your email. Have a great week!
