Polling time!!!

No, I don't want to know who your favorite Presidential canidate is-these polls are more fun!!! ;)

We currently have 2 active polls running for DWC:

1. Where would you like the next DWC steering meeting (February 7th) to be? We are changing locations in order to facilitate the brainstorming of questions for the Doctor Who Jeopardy game we are creating for Marcon.

Poll ends February 7th.

2. We are having another video room at Marcon this year!! Go and vote on five, (and only five!!) shows that you would like to see represented in our British Sci-Fi and Fantasy TV room. Where are Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Sarah Jane in this poll, you may ask? Don't worry, they are already included in our lineup!! :-D

No end date (yet) for this poll-but the sooner the better, so Andrew can have some idea of what the most popular shows are.

Be sure to log into the DWC Yahoo group and vote in the polls! Thanks!!!

Potluck update!

Hey everyone!! Here's an update from John:

"For food and drinks for the meeting, I will provide my usual hummus and crackers. I also have some pop (both regular and diet) left over from holiday festivities. As for the rest of you, surprise the group
with a side dish, dessert, or drink of your choice. If we plan this out too much, it won't exactly be a potluck then! ;)"

How true!! :)

January Meeting and Potluck!

Don't forget this Saturday, January 19th is our monthly meeting! This month it will be held at John's from 5-10pm. Join us for the Christmas Doctor Who, Voyage of the Damned, as well as the premiere episode of Torchwood Season 2. This is a potluck event so please bring something to share.

John's posted directions to his house in the files section, and don't forget to vote in the poll to let us know you're coming!!

More details concerning the potluck as I get them... :)

Hope to see you there!!

Trip to!

Don't forget!!! This Saturday, January 12th, we're planning another trip to in Indianapolis to look at all the great Who Toys, and talk with them about attending Marcon this May. Join us for a field trip that only Doctor Who can provide!

The plan is to meet at Andrew's around 10am, then drive over to Indianapolis. Don't forget to vote in the poll to let us know if you're coming or not, and if you need a ride or can provide one. Thanks!!

Also, since I have your attention-our monthly meeting-set for January 19th at John's- is going to be potluck. More details are forthcoming, so be sure to keep an eye on this blog and the DWC Yahoo group!
