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.

I replied "other" as I would basically be up for any events, and I would also be willing to offer my assistance in some way if you needed it. Just let me know what I could do (short of a donation, because unfortunately this is going to be sapping me of what little money I have left).
Awesomesauce! It's good to have a team of go-to people. As soon as I can be certain of the time and location and who will be able to make it, I'll start marshaling the forces and seeing who wants to help with what.
Sounds gooood. :D
My answers are dependent on when the meeting is. *g*
Yep. I think this is the case for a fair number of people. I'll be announcing the time or posting a poll as soon as I know definitively about room availability.
Aww, you should have made the last one ticky boxes too, so I could have picked an amount as well as the Rule of Acquisition.

(Never make fun of a Ferengi's mother.)

I'm a little confused by the idea of a "best" Vulcan salute -- either you can do it (with one or both hands) or you can't, right? (And are you suggesting there are people in the world who didn't train themselves to do this when they were in grade school? ;) )
Aww, you should have made the last one ticky boxes too, so I could have picked an amount as well as the Rule of Acquisition.

D'oh! You're so right about that.

And as far as the Vulcan salute goes, I think there are a number of fine-grained criteria that could be used - attitude, ambidexterity, the ability to do a quick draw salute, amount of space between the fingers. Better continue practicing! :D
Hmmm... I'm definitely ambidextrous about it (one of the few things I can do with my left hand as well as my right -- better, actually, they spread farther), I can "quick draw" (lol, amusing image)... maybe I need work on my attitude ;)
Oh yeah! Sounds like we need to have a showdown! :D
I can HELP to organize one of the activities, but I'm not up for organizing it on my lonesome. yipes!
Help is good! Help is always good!
