Are you a parent who is more comfortable playing Dungeons & Dragons than Chutes & Ladders? Do your family trips to Disney just happen to fall on Star Wars Weekends? Did you consider "Tiberius" as a middle name for your child? Was the prospect of dressing your helpless infant as a character from your favorite sci-fi or fantasy series for Halloween one of the highlights of impending parenthood?
This is a group for moms and dads who refuse to leave their nerdy sides (and superhero t-shirts) behind just because they have spawned the next generation of mini-geeks. We will be planning events like kid-friendly LOTR-themed potlucks, family outings to Hurricane Who, Megacon, and medieval fairs, weekend and evening video/board/card/rpg gaming, crafty playdates, and much more, and the kids are always invited.
Our target age range is any school age kid willing to put up with the quirky interests and possibly eccentric wardrobe choices of their parents, though the weekday morning events will be geared more towards the 0-4 year set. Events can be posted by any member to keep the ideas fresh. If you've been feeling a bit cut off from your non-parent geek friends and want to meet other parents who won't space out when you rhapsodize about your latest Linux upgrade, give us a try!
