April events

anim_37_bigGreetings everyone (especially the new people checking out or fun club).  We have a couple of items coming up for the month of April  in regards to meetings or activities.  Wednesday, April 13th is our monthly meeting.  This will be at the new Weber County Southwest Library in Roy.  The address is 2039 West 4000 South.  It is just to the west of the IOmega Building in Roy (and 1/2 block east of the Roy Frontrunner station).  This will be at 7:00pm and we have several new people showing up.  We met them at our FanX booth and are very interested in meeting the local Star Trek family.  Note: You do not need to wear uniforms to meetings.  We do encourage you to bring a Star Trek/Sci-Fi item to show off if you would like.  We also encourage you to bring a friend with you to the meetings (rank advancement points are awarded for recruiting new members).

One of the events we will be talking about is an upcoming game night where the Seventh Fleet CinC, Admiral Dennis Hollinger, will run a Star Trek game for us.  We will be deciding upon a date and location at the meeting.

Saturday, April 16th is the monthly activity.  We will be watching the 2009 Star Trek movie and passing off and ADVOT (Advanced Officer Training) sheet for rank promotions.  This will be at 2:00pm at the home of Captain Stark in Clearfield.  If you want to take an Academy Exam or a Commander’s Test for rank advancements, they will be available as well.

Don’t forget our future events are on the horizon such as Boondocks (May 21), FantastiCON (June 4), Movie Promotion prep BBQ (June 18) and the Star Trek Beyond movie promotion (July 22-23).

EXTRA, EXTRA!!!!! Read all about it.  Yes once again our Star Trek club has made the local newspaper.  In the Friday (March 18th) edition of the Ogden Standard Examiner published an interview with Captain Erica Stark and Rear Admiral Carl Stark about the 20th Anniversary of our Star Trek family.    The article can be found here: http://www.standard.net/Lifestyle/2016/03/17/northern-utah-star-trek-club-20-anniversary.html

Can you believe it?  We started this little get together in the basement of the Clearfield Library in March, 1996.  Our first activity was a visit to the Hill AFB Museum.

What are your memories from the past 20 years?  We would love to hear them.

October meeting (14th) and activity (17th)

anim_39_bigSo after having a ton of fun raising money for the Children’s Justice Center at the Salt Lake Comic Con-Seventh Fleet booth we now turn our attention to October.

Wednesday, October 14th we will be returning to the Roy Library for our monthly meeting (we don’t know if this will stay permanent for the winter months).  The address to the library is 1950 West 4800 South.  The meeting will start at 7:00pm in the auditorium.  We may have several new recruits checking us out so be prepared to introduce yourself and talk about the fun we have in our Star Trek family.  This would also be a good meeting to bring new recruits to.

Saturday, October 17th we will be holding an activity at the Black Island Farms cornmaze (Utah’s largest maze) in Syracuse (address is 3178 South 3000 West).   We will be meeting in the courtyard at 4:00pm.  The courtyard has play areas for the kids.  We would advise having a jacket, good walking shoes, a flashlight and water with you.  There is food available within the facility or you can eat before coming over.  Cost depends upon how many attractions you wish to visit (Cornmaze, Pumpkin Ride, Haunted house).  They have combos and specials on their website at http://www.blackislandfarms.com/

Note 1: The Hogle Zoo activity has been moved to 2016.  We will discuss dates at our January monthly meeting.

Note 2: Department Chiefs please contact the CO or XO about the date/time for the next Senior Officers Meeting.

USS Ticonderoga, NCC-74676-A officially launched

CaptStark_AdmHollingerNow that Captain Erica Stark has completed all of the requirements to achieve the rank of Captain (not an easy task in the Seventh Fleet) the next version of the USS Ticonderoga can now launched.  At the USS Ticonderoga room party at CONduit, Seventh Fleet CinC Admiral Dennis Hollinger officially launched the USS Ticonderoga, NCC-74676-A.  Ronin Class Starship.  Admiral Hollinger presented the dedication plaque for the new starship to Captain Stark.

Even with this major goal accomplished, the Ticonderoga is not sitting on it’s laurels.  We have Fantasicon coming up at the Pleasant Valley Library (Weber County) on June 6th.  We also have a ton of events planned for the year and we are also continuing to grow.  We could have two new chapter-in-training Runabouts launched by the end of summer.  Now is when we need your help and now is when we need new ideas.  It’s time to boldly go.  Let’s see what’s out there.

19th Anniversary, March Meeting and March Activity

picard_clappingFirst: The USS Ticonderoga started as a Star Trek club on this date, March 9th, all the way back in 1996.  We met at the Clearfield Library to announce our launching (as the USS Euphrates, a chapter-in-training off of the USS Kelly) and then went to the Hill AFB Museum as the activity.  That was nineteen years ago.  How many clubs last for over nineteen years?  Congratulations to all of you who contribute towards the club.

Second: The March Meeting is coming up on Wednesday the 11th at 7:00pm.  And yes we are back at the Roy Library after having to find alternate locations for the last two months.  Bring your Star Trek show and tell items.  More importantly, bring a friend to introduce to the club.  Remember you gain 10 leadership points for each new recruit.

Third: Our March activity will be held on Saturday the 14th.  Lt. Richard Luke will be conducting a leather working class.  There is a $5 material fee for the items we are making (a rounder, a coin purse or a key-chain).  Please RSVP at the meeting so we have enough material.  We are also encouraging everyone to celebrate Pi Day by bringing a favorite pie.  This will start at noon at Starbase 40.   You may want to eat lunch before coming over.

July on the USS Ticonderoga

usbadgedarkWow, July has already been busy with FantasyCon, WesterCon and Independence Day. We hope that everyone recovered from the long weekend.

Now we have several more events coming up.  Wednesday, July 9th is the USS Ticonderoga monthly meeting.  Yes it will be at the Roy Library at 7:00pm (we called and confirmed that they had the spot for us).  Friday, July 11th is the Senior Officers Meeting at the Captain’s house.  Please have your reports and/or requests into you Department Chiefs before this date.  Saturday, July 12th we have two things going on.  At 10:00am at Bicentennial Park in Clearfield (just behind the Clearfield library) the Seventh Fleet is doing a photo shoot of members in costume/uniform.  This will be for our upcoming Salt Lake Comic Con ad.  At 2:00pm at Fisher Park in Clearfield (on 700 South) we will be doing another rocket launch (by request from members who missed the last one).

You can bring family and friends to the Monthly Meeting or Rocket Launch.  Come by and have some fun with us.  We’ve got a lot of planning coming up for our chapter and we would like to hear your input on all of them.

Always remember to have fun.

 

USS Ticonderoga Feb activity Unlimited Laser Tag/Bowling

tumblr_lpnxgrAXtF1qemjzlo1_500At our January meeting it was asked by members of the crew if we could participate in another laser tag event.  We had a lot of fun the last time we had went in 2012.  The crew elected to go back to the Boondocks laser tag arena in Kaysville.  As we were looking over different dates, we discovered that on Tuesday’s, Boondocks had unlimited laser tag and bowling (including shoe rental) for $12/each.  This also included some other events as well.  By comparison, a single laser tag game is $6 and a single bowling game is $4 (not counting shoe rental).  The unlimited time runs from 4:00pm to 10:00pm.  We elected to hold this event on February 25th.  Feel free to show up anytime after 4pm (most will arrive after work schedules permit) and feel free to bring family and friends.

Boondocks is located at 525 West Deseret Drive, Kaysville, UT 84037

USS Ticonderoga New Years Eve party

"Data don't hurt me....no more"
(singing) “Data don’t hurt me….no more”

Well we survived 2013.  The year that wasn’t suppose to happen thanks to the Myan apocalypse .  We had a lot of fun this year.  The first ever (and record breaking) Salt Lake Comic Con.  The Star Trek Into Darkness movie promotion.  Moving meeting locations to Clearfield.  What was some of your club highlights from 2013?

And we are continuing our tradition of a USS Ticonderoga New Years Eve party.  As you can see the first three guests are on their way and they are excited about joining us for the fun.  Lt. Frank Buck will be hosting the event at his home in Layton (email us if you don’t have the address).  The club will be providing meat for the BBQ.  Please bring side dishes, deserts or drinks.  Also feel free to bring fireworks and any games or videos that you would like to share.  The party will start at 7:00pm.  Feel free to bring friends and family.  This will be a non-alcoholic event.

ADDITIONAL: We will also be doing the Bajoran Renewal Scrolls at the party.  For details on this see the Deep Space Nine episode Fascination.
