Meetup details changed: Eastside Games with Friends Weekly Meetup

Hello All!

As you can see, the "official" start time has been returned to original of 6pm. But please do not let this stop anyone from scheduling gameplay at earlier times, like 4pm or 3pm or even 2pm! And, if you'd like to show up at 5pm because this is convenient to your schedule, then please feel free to do that also.

"Despite popular belief", this club is not "just" or "all about me". *silly giggles* So, please make it your own! Bring games you'd like play &/or teach. Walk up to people already playing games, and sit down next to someone - we love to teach while we play, and sometimes it's easier to "get the flavor" of the game this way.

I shall be there likely around 5:30pm, and I will be hungry, thus purchasing foodstuffs, especially coffee, almost directly. And, I will (should) be ready for gameplay, myself, at 6pm. (generally speaking, of course)

The reason for the return to 6pm is because I am now a "card carrying member" of the M-F full time desk job "club"! - so to speak. ;P Two weeks ago (on Tues 8/30), I had a job interview at Grace Hospice in Mentor for the Data Entry Position, and I got the job, and my first full day is this Monday 9/19!

How did I hear about the position? I was on Facebook, IMing and playing scrabble with Lynne,  Assistant Organizer who hosts the "Kool Kids" Saturdays at Solon Panera. She was telling me how they were having a hard time finding a someone (at her new place of emplyment) that was a "good fit" (my quotes) for the filing position. So I thought, "What the heck!" ...I have been looking for this elusive full time desk job (on again, off agin) since January 2003 - I kid you not! And I have come to learn that it is all about networking! Or at least about keeping ones eyes and ears "open" at all times! THANK YOU LYNNE!

I also want to send out my Congratulations! to Vaughn, another one of our Assistant Organizers, who has also very recently found himself a new full time job at Progressive Insurance (where Jeannette, yet another one of our Assistant Organizers has been working for many years).

Quick "Pep Talk": This seems to be a very good time to be "in search of" that "elusive full time job".
