Wow we were so busy with March with our activities and the Salt Lake Comic Con FanX booth that we blinked and March was over. Many thanks to the volunteers who helped out at the booth. We had several compliments on how relaxed our “Ten Forward Lounge Theme” was set up. So here is what we have coming up in April.
Wednesday, April 12th is our monthly meeting. However our regular meeting location, the Roy Library, is booked for this month. Luckily Ticonderoga crewmembers Damon and Amanda Ricks were able to set us up with a temporary location for this month. So we will be meeting at the Marshall White Community Center located at 222 28th Street in Ogden. The Ricks have set up a special event for our meeting so be on time for some prizes. The meeting starts at 7:00pm and feel free to bring a friend. In May we will be back at the Roy Library.
The Ticonderoga Senior Officer’s meeting will be held on Friday, April 14th at Starbase 40. Please let the Captain know if you will be attending so she can make sure there is enough food for dinner.
April 21-23 are the dates for the StarFest convention in Denver. This is the 40th Anniversary of the convention and a lot of Seventh Fleet members are attending. (especially if we missed the Las Vegas Star Trek Convention last August) We have a discount ticket code from our friends on the USS Pioneer. If you are interested in going, contact the Captain. A few members may still have spots open for rides and/or rooms. Walter Koenig and Rene Auberjonois are two Star Trek actors who will be in attendance at the convention. This would also count as an out-of-state convention for those working towards the ‘command grade’ ranks. Additional details can be found at www.StarFestDenver.com
We have a free event for Saturday, April 29th. We will be visiting the Hill AFB Museum. However instead of just wandering between exhibits as we have done before, we have a guided tour. Please be at the museum lobby before noon in order to go on the tour. We may have several visitors from other chapters joining us for this event.
Just a week later will be our May activity on Saturday the 6th. We will be meeting at a park in Clearfield or Layton for a rocket launch and drone races. This will run from 11:30am-3:30pm. Bring your own picnic lunch for the event.
