Wow, May was such a busy month that we didn’t get a blog post in. Sorry about that. We usually have a TON of discussions going on with our USS Ticonderoga Facebook page (click on link to visit).
We have a very busy month in June. On Saturday, June 4th we will have a booth at the Weber County Library 3rd Annual FanCon (formerly known as Fantasticon). This will be held at the Roy Library (same location as our meetings) from Noon to 3:00pm. There will also be a food truck rally held at the same time. There is no admission cost for this event. This is a costumed activity so come and be prepared to show off the fun we have in the club.
Wednesday, June 8th is the monthly USS Ticonderoga business meeting at the Central Park located at 300 East Center Street, Clearfield (just to the east of the Clearfield City Hall and Wasatch Elementary). This will start at 7:00pm (first 30 minutes is socialization, then meeting announcements and don’t forget a Star Trek/SF show and tell). This is not a uniformed event, but we encourage club or Star Trek shirts. Bring your dinner to BBQ or brown bag it. For July’s meeting we will be back at the Roy library (there was no room for us in June).
Friday, June 10th will be the USS Ticonderoga Senior Officer’s meeting at Starbase 40. Please make sure you have your reports into your Department Chief before this date.
Saturday, June 18th is our monthly activity. We will be meeting at the home of Captain Stark (Starbase 40) in Clearfield for a BBQ and Star Trek Beyond prep night. Bring your own meat and a dish to share. We will be finishing up any preparations for the upcoming Star Trek Beyond movie promotion in July. Captain Stark has a new BBQ grill to use. This event will start at 2:00pm and run until finished.
Captain Stark will be attending the Seventh Fleet Council Meeting on Saturday, June 25th. If you have any proposals for the 2017 Seventh Fleet Admiral’s Banquet (or any other proposals), you need to get them to Captain Stark before this meeting.
Also on June 25th and 26h will be the Hill AFB Air Show. This event is free to the public and a lot of Ticonderoga members attend this event. Make sure you bring your own lunch, water, sunscreen and folding chairs. Give yourself lots of time with the crowds (traffic can be slow). But seeing a lot of the older airplanes and newer craft can be very exciting. This event only happens once every two years.
Don’t forget to check with your Department Chiefs for any upcoming department meetings or activities.
Future Events to keep in mind: July 13 Monthly meeting. July 16 Seventh Fleet Games. July 22 Star Trek Beyond movie premier. August 2-7 Las Vegas Star Trek Convention. Sept 1-3 Salt Lake Comic Con.
