New Member Social

The new member social is just what it sounds like – an opportunity for new BAS members to come out and socialize! This event has been proven to be quite well attended by new members, as well as our “experienced” members. This is also a perfect ice breaker for those who have join online but never actually attended an event, or have just haven’t been to an event in a while.

New Members:
Please stop by and see Michelle and me, we set up at the long table on your right as you enter from the parking lot. If you need a little assistance with introductions, please let us know! Keep in mind that everyone is here to meet new people! Don’t be afraid to say hello!

“Experienced” Members:
I know as well as anyone how easy it is to get caught up in chatting with friends you haven’t seen for a while – but PLEASE go out of your way to introduce yourself to the new members. Let’s make sure they get a warm welcome!

As for our venue - in addition to food, beverages and pool, karaoke starts at 9:00pm for those who feel so inclined! Food and drinks are pretty reasonable and if you choose to have a drink and a bite, you can expect to spend between $8 - $20. We have a great bunch of servers who take care of us, please remember to take care of them in return!

So on behalf of BAS, Michelle and I invite you to come on out and have a great time meeting a great bunch of people!

      Ahhh dammit ! well, I would LOVE TO "monkey" around with OZ (James Franco) !! LMAO! Chuck Norris can wait !

    • Diane S

      That makes me think when you said flying monkeys. We should all go to the new OZ movie.

    So I heard that when Chuck Norris does push-ups he is actually pushing the earth away from himself.

      Chuck Norris doesn't mow his lawn, he just stands outside and dares it to grow.

    To those of you without pictures....Some of us (I) have a problem remembering names. If you put up a picture it would be so much easier to remember who I talked to, (there are a whole lot of people to remember) To Tony B. your timing couldn't have been better! thank you

    I don't drive at night and I need to get to this event at 6:45 sharp to help hostess. I'll pay for gas and a couple of drinks if anyone is willing to give me a ride. I am by Hill Road and Collister.

    I enjoyed the meetup but was and am still curious as to why no karaoke

    March 8, 2013

    • Paul

      We don't have anything to do with the karaoke. That is something The Crescent does every Thursday.

    I woke up the other day with a sore throat. Now I have graduated into you don't want to know. I don't want to make good people feel bad so I'll keep my cooties to myself. I was really looking forward to this.

    March 7, 2013

  • Nathan B.

    Not totally sure I will be able to make it tonight. I'd kind of like to see a maybe option in the future. Homework and other obligations though need to come first for me. It is possible I might make it though.

    Wow! I think this is a new record for RSVPs for the New Member Social! Since we will certainly be packing the house at the Crescent, I would just like to send out a little message with some common-sense reminders that we can all be guilty of forgetting from time to time in regards to our venue and wait-staff.
    Please, PLEASE try to keep clear of the server’s ordering area – keep in mind that if they can't get to their order station - YOU don't get your drinks! Don't make me give them each a cat-o-nine tails to swat you out of the way. I'll do it... don't test me!
    But seriously, if we just keep the paths open we'll all have a better time.
    Above all your patience and courtesy are appreciated!

      Excellent point Cathy! That seems to be a collection area. Something else to keep in mind, with so many people there it is hard for the staff to make a point of asking if you need something. Be a little proactive and flag them down when (I almost typed if) you need to order something. Looking forward to seeing everyone!!

      2 · March 6, 2013

    • Cathy

      Thanks for the input Paul - excellent point indeed!

    Hi All!

    This message is for "experienced" members - sorry there is no way to differentiate, so you all get the email!

    I'm sorry that I keep having to ask for help, but for the next several months (until July actually) the new member social falls on the weeks that I have my kiddos, which wouldn't usually be a problem, but I have classes on Monday and Tuesday nights this semester and have a hard time justifying being away from them 3 nights in their week. So I really need a sub to take my place for at least this month - and potentially until July (when the first Thursday falls on the 4th, so obviously a change needs to be made) OR after this month a temporary move to the 2nd Thursday of the month?

    Input appreciated!

    ~Cathy
