Social Meeting/Marcon picnic, Torchwood

Hey everyone! Don't forget the Marcon Picnic tomorrow!! Starting at 9:00 and running until about 6pm at Highbanks Metro Park. Please bring a side dish and/or dessert to share. It also might be wise to bring something to drink (usually Marcon provides this with leftovers from the ConSuite, but there weren't any this year).

For directions and other general information about the park:

Also, Torchwood: Children of Earth begins this Monday starting at 9pm on BBC America!! And for those who were worried how much would be cut from the original BBC broadcast-you've got nothing to worry about! BBC America is planning on airing the mini-series uncut! (all episodes will be in a 75 minute timeslot, to allow for commercials)

You'll have three chances to watch/record it: 9pm, 12am, and 2:30am (all times Eastern). Just don't wait for the re-broadcast at 8pm-unfortunately those showings will only be 60 min.

Are you as excited as I am?!?!?! :-D

Change of movie plans!

Due to the midnight showing of the new Harry Potter movie being sold out last night, we've decided to try to make the 7pm showing at Lennox. It was so out on 23 screens-so if you haven't already done so- it might be a good idea to buy your tickets in advance!

*EDIT: GAH!!!! We are aiming for the 6:15pm showing of Harry Potter, NOT the 7pm!!!! Sorry guys!*
