December Steering Meeting!

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Don't forget our December steering meeting will be this Thursday, December 2nd from 7-9pm. It looks like we'll be back at the Giant Eagle Market District at Kingsdale in Upper Arlington. (for directions and contact info, be sure to check the DWC Yahoo list)

Well, last week was Doctor Who's 47th anniversary. Already there are ramblings about how to celebrate the Golden anniversary. BBC News just published an article this morning-apparently Sylvester McCoy would be very interested in returning for a multi-doctor episode for the big 5-0. Why not? They did one for the 10th and 25th anniversaries. Personally, I would love to see Paul McGann as well. :) What are your thoughts?

Hope to see you on Thursday!

Oh! Just a reminder-for anyone who went to Chicago Tardis this past weekend-if you took any pictures that you would like to share on this blog, please contact me! Thanks!!

November Steering meeting-change of venue!

Hi everyone!

This is just a reminder to folks that our monthly steering meeting is this Thursday, November 4th, from 7 to 9 pm!

This month Andrew would like to try something fun and different, so our meeting will be at the Giant Eagle Market District at Kingsdale in Upper Arlington. (This is only a few blocks from our usual locale.)

Market District at Kingsdale offers plenty of food options including a fresh Crépe station, a Rosti station, a Indian Food station, normal Salad Bar, and Hot food bar, as well as a made-to-order Pizzaria. All plates are only 5 or 6 dollars. Cold drinks as well as wine glasses, and anything you would normally find in a grocery store to eat and drink are available.

With seating for 400, we should have no trouble finding a spot! Let's all meet upstairs where there are nice tables, and couches. :)

There is plenty to talk about including the newest episodes of Sarah Jane Adventures, with special appearance of the Doctor.

See you all there!
