***What the p'tahk is a candy bar?****


While it is commonly understood that a candy bar is one of these, during the Star Trek meet-up on Monday, July 20th, we're planning something more along the lines of a candy buffet - a veritable smorgasbord of sweets from across the galaxy where one might savor a Vulcan plomeek pop, taste a Tribble bite, assimilate a Bajoran jumja stick, or enjoy the perennial favorite, gummie gagh.


***Information for Candy Bar Contributors****


We're looking forward to a wide array of goodies from the alpha, beta, gamma and delta quadrants. Contributors are asked to sign up below and to list their intended contribution. For those in need of a little inspiration, Memory Alpha's entry on Food and Beverages, organized by species, might be a good start. In addition, a true Trek candy bar wouldn't be complete without chocolates in the form of Starfleet's insignia.

Contributors to the candy bar are also asked to bring a container (plastic plates or bowls, and recycled boxes will do) to display the "candy" in.

Napkins for sticky fingers, a snazzy tablecloth, and placards identifying the candy and contributor will be provided.

Heghlu’meH QaQ jajvam!!!


...maybe not, but today IS A GOOD DAY FOR ANOTHER POLL!!

Several of you have been in touch with me regarding your time preference for scheduling the azkatrek meetup on Monday, and I wanted to see which of the two possible time slots would work for most people.

Option 1 is during the lunch break on Monday, approximately between noon-2pm. Although this timeslot fits nicely between presentations, it will overlap with the MPA lunch at ZEUM and may be a tight fit for those heading off to the Claymation workshop which begins at 1:30pm.

Option 2 is in the early evening on Monday, approximately between 6-8pm. This means that those of you fanartist types should have no conflict with the artzkatraz Drink 'n Draw planned for later Monday evening. However, this timeslot will partially overlap with the latter half of the MPA reception which begins at 5pm and as much as the first half of the auction, scheduled to begin at 7pm.

Your feedback will help with planning. As always, I will still need to receive official confirmation from the organizers, so things could still change (although hopefully not very much) before the final program schedule is set.

As we await more information on room availability and time, I thought it might help to get some ideas of what the Star Trek meetup should look like.

The fabulous glockgal and I have been in consultation to ensure that the Trek meetup and the Drink N Draw don't overlap. The two main options are currently Monday evening around 6pm before the Drink N Draw or Monday afternoon between noon and 2pm during the lunch break.

Look for a poll on that later.

In the meantime, help pimp this comm, so we can get a good headcount on who might be coming and which times will work best.

Live long and azkatrek!
