July Steering Meeting

Lots of activity happened this weekend-congratulations to the new chair and vice chair of Marcon 46-Marc and Nick!

How about that Finale? How would you sum up Matt Smith's first season as the Doctor? (please feel free to leave your opinions in the comments-just play nice! ;) Also, try to refrain from spoilers, just in case... ) For those following along on BBC America, don't forget the next episode of Doctor Who, The Lodger, will air on July 12th.

This is a friendly reminder that our July steering meeting will be tomorrow, July 1st from 7-9 pm at the Tommy's on Lane. Hope to see you there!!

Epic. Win. ;)

Howdy folks!

First of all, I'd like to say "WELCOME" to all of our new members that joined at Marcon! :)

Did you have fun at Marcon? I know I did! :) It was great seeing everybody again-can't wait until next year! :) I hope to be posting some pictures here and on facebook soon. (sorry they aren't up yet-but I got walloped by a cold Tuesday/Wednesday-it really knocked me out, and I'm still recovering. *sniffle, cough, cough* ;) )

Don't forget we are having our June steering meeting TONIGHT at Tommy's Pizza on Lane from 7-9 pm. Hope to see you there!!
