April 28, 2014

Chris Garcia, Vice President
Dave Gallaher, Treasurer
Galen Tripp, Sergeant at Arms
Barbara Johnson-Haddad, Secretary
held at Coco's, 1206 Oakmead Parkway (Lawrence Expressway/101 Fwy), Sunnyvale

Began at 8 - with a cry of 'bazinga'
26 people attended

A party recepticle was established

The minutes of meeting 1238 were accepted as 'legend, not canon'

The Treasurer reported that last week we took in $3.25 in the regular jar and $10.50 in the party jar

There was no Vice President

The President had nothing fannish to report - but we did say 'hi' to Jay, visiting us for the 1st time - although he has always been here

The Party Committee still needs a Baycon party host, otherwise there will be no BASFA party there & he wants to find

others to host parties at FurCon, so the room can be used every day of the con, since the party room rules have changed -

plus the BASFA party at BronyCon went well - a good time was had by all & many BASFA ribbons were handed out

Reviews:
Bradley reviewed the Overstreet Price Guide as it will have a great Batman cover and a crappy Vampirella one

Chris O reviewed trying to get a hotel room at Gallifrey [many moans] as extremely nerve-wracking and she didn't get to stay at the Marriott; lots of follow ons

John O reviewed 'Divergent' as the theatre was packed & it was worth high matinee & reviewed 'Juan de la Muerta' as a highly recommended zombie comedy set in Cuba - subtitled - available on HBO go

Dave G reviewed Norwescon as heavily attended, mostly well-organized and a good time was had by all

Dave C reviewed Norwescon as that he spent most of his time in the Dealer's room, sales were good & he had a peculiar time and that a pamphlet 'How to Talk to your Cat about Gun Safety' was his best seller

JC reviewed 'Frozen' as nice, albeit sung-along with by all 3 gals in his house & reviewed 'Elysium' as very reminiscent of 'District 9' and recommended

Josh reviewed Impact Cinemas in Berkeley as they have 'Splatter Cinema' for $6 for really bad horror movies and a very fun event - check = http://www.impacttheatre.com/splattercinema/index.php

Trey reviewed 'Metal Hurlant' on skiffy channel as very 'heavy Metal' inspired and recommended
