The Treasurer was absent - but last week we took in $2.50 in the regular jar and $10.50 in the party jar [Trey: 'Treasurer sad'

There was no Vice President

The President had nothing fannish to report

There should be a Friday, April 25, PacBell Giants-vs-Cleveland game outing = $26.00 tickets - meet Dave Gallaher outside the ballpark for the tickets

Ken announced that the Legion of Rasselon meeting will be at the IHOP on Steven's Creek near Lawrence, 7:30 pm this Friday

Reviews:
[tall] Kevin reviewed the Hotel Cabana in Palo Alto as fancy-looking, a remarkably comfortable hotel - but the $12 parking fee was not appreciated & it would be a great place for a SMOFcon

Howeird reviewed 'Little Shop of Horrors' as it's been keeping him busy, makes a great children's show ['they eat it up'] and he thinks it's a great show

Diane reviewed books - 'Dead Space: Martyr' by BK Evenson as sf/horror and highly recommended - & reviewed 'Overkill' and 'Undercurrents' - both by Robert Buettner as parts of a series with good world-building and good plots and she plans to buy the whole series, it's that good

Adrienne reviewed the season premiere of 'Orphan Black' as funny and good and tense and Felix remains her favorite character

Ryan reviewed 'Transcendence' as really good, if predictable - worth seeing at matinee
prices

we did auctions

we adjourned at 9:12

and the rumor of the week was: 'the internet is for cats, pron & conspiracies'
