Double issue of Ticonderoga Transmissions

The latest issue of the Ticonderoga Transmissions is now released and it is a big one. The editors have elected to combine the Spring and Summer issues into one giant issue. Plus there is a bonus section celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.

The theme for this issue is the Ticonderoga Spirit Guides. This includes our current guide “The Otter” with our past spirit guide, “The Turtle”. A spirit guide holds several qualities that the crew of the Ticonderoga currently demonstrates or should work towards.

September Already!!!!!

Greetings, all!

If you’re just finding us after FanX, welcome! Thank you for taking the time to check us out.

Our monthly meeting is this Wednesday, September 11, 2019, at the Roy branch of the Weber county library; 2039 w. 4000 s., Roy. Our meeting room will be open at 6:30 pm, and we will start with the informational part of the meeting at 7 pm.
A)-Don’t forget your awesome show-n-tell items.
B)-Remember that Damon will be asking a couple questions from the latest issue of the newsletter and has prizes to hand out for correct answers. (You can find the latest newsletter under the download links.)

The basics: we have been around for over twenty years. Our area of patrol covers from Ogden to Kaysville (roughly), and are a founding member of a larger group of Star Trek clubs, Starfleet Command’s Seventh Fleet. The fleet stretches from southern Idaho (Burley/Heyburn/Rupert and Idaho Falls, specifically), all the way down to Utah county.

We are a free club, because, as Admiral Stark likes to say, it already costs too much to be a Star Trek fan. What this means on a practical basis is that you pay your own way. We try to have a good mix of free and paid activities, to include the largest number of people. From time to time, we will hold fundraising events, generally for larger items like ship banners and the medals that we award for various reasons.

As far as involvement goes, you can be as active or as passive as you’d like. Some people enjoy going through the ranks and taking on leadership roles within the club. Others prefer to just come and have fun with like-minded people. All are welcome. We make sure it’s easy to cater to your personal level of enjoyment.

(Also, in case you’re wondering, no, we don’t care if you are a member of another Star Trek – or any other fandom – club; and no, we aren’t *just* about Star Trek.)

On other fronts, this is the last month for the awesome display at the Roy library. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, make sure you do so. Maybe come to the meeting a little early, so you have time to peruse the amazing collection.

To end this post, I’ll just drop a reminder here about the Klingon End of Summer BBQ. Saturday, September 28, 1-4 pm, at Central park, 330 Center st., Clearfield. BYOM and something to share. The ship will provide plates, napkins, utensils, basic condiments, and charcoal for the grill.

Thanks again for your time, and I hope to see you all there on Wednesday!

Website Under Construction

Hard at work

Greetings, All!

I hope you’re surviving the cold weather we’re having. ( Personally, I will be very happy when the warm weather returns.)

As you may have noticed, there are parts of our site here that are terribly out of date. We are working on getting things fixed. We have a crack(ed) team of specialists working to mend, spit and polish her up.  Please be patient as we work our way through this endeavor.

Our events calendar is always up-to-date, so you can go there for quick checks.

In the meantime, if you haven’t already done so, please take a gander at the latest newsletter. It’s big and beautiful and full of fun stuff.

Our meeting on December 12th is our annual Mugato Gift Exchange. This year, our mugato is red. What this means is that if the gift you bring is red, you get a little treat. (It must be the gift itself that is red, not the wrapping paper/bag.)  All gifts need to be wrapped and anonymous. If you choose something that is new and store bought, please don’t spend more than $10.00 on it. We’re just having fun and don’t want to break the bank. Handmade items are always popular. If the item you bring is used, please make sure that it is clean, has all it’s parts, and is in good working order. In short, make it something that you would like to receive.

We will be meeting in the classroom in December, so that we can have treats.

I hope to see you all there. We have some fun things to hand out before the craziness gets underway.

As you slide down the banisters of life, may the slivers never point the wrong way.  =)
