August 12th Meeting and upcoming August activity

anim_39_bigYea, we were so distracted by a busy July that we let it slip by.  So let’s catch up with what is happening in August.  Wednesday, August 12th is our monthly meeting.  We are still at Central Park (behind Clearfield City Hall and Wasatch Elementary).  Bring your own dinner and be prepared to talk about the upcoming Salt Lake Comic Con (which is coming up very fast).

Saturday, August 22 is the next Seventh Fleet Games/Fleet Day.  This is hosted by the USS Essex.  This will be at the Spruces Campground #GRP3, Big Cottonwood Canyon (just east of Salt Lake City).  The cost is $5/person.  Please bring your money to the August 12th meeting (or have it to the Captain no latter than August 15th).  There will be a ton of games and events at this annual event.  Please wear your yellow Ticonderoga shirts or your blue Fleet shirts.

USS Ticonderoga meeting on June 10th

StarTrekOtterDarknessAnd now a word from our Captain: Hey everyone! Just a reminder that the June Tico meeting is this coming Wednesday, June 10th at 7:00pm (grill will be started earlier if you want to come cook early). We will be at Central park in Clearfield again, and this month we will be firing up the grill.  Please bring something to throw on the grill, and a dish to share.

As always, the ship will be providing plates, utensils, napkins, cups, and condiments.

Don’t forget any show and tell items you may have, feel free to bring a friend and come prepared with a factoid about our new spirit guide for a treat.

USS Ticonderoga, NCC-74676-A officially launched

CaptStark_AdmHollingerNow that Captain Erica Stark has completed all of the requirements to achieve the rank of Captain (not an easy task in the Seventh Fleet) the next version of the USS Ticonderoga can now launched.  At the USS Ticonderoga room party at CONduit, Seventh Fleet CinC Admiral Dennis Hollinger officially launched the USS Ticonderoga, NCC-74676-A.  Ronin Class Starship.  Admiral Hollinger presented the dedication plaque for the new starship to Captain Stark.

Even with this major goal accomplished, the Ticonderoga is not sitting on it’s laurels.  We have Fantasicon coming up at the Pleasant Valley Library (Weber County) on June 6th.  We also have a ton of events planned for the year and we are also continuing to grow.  We could have two new chapter-in-training Runabouts launched by the end of summer.  Now is when we need your help and now is when we need new ideas.  It’s time to boldly go.  Let’s see what’s out there.

May 13 Meeting ** new location **

tumblr_mtaexjgO1P1rik14zo1_400With the warmer months now upon us we have moved our meetings outside as requested by the members.  We will be meeting at the Clearfield Central Park located on 140 East Center St.  If you know where the Clearfield City Hall is on the corner of Main and Center Street.  The park is just to the east of the city hall and elementary school.

As we will be at a park, the kids can go an play during the meeting.  Also you are encouraged to bring your own picnic dinners to enjoy during the meeting.  The meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend and check out the club.  And don’t forget to bring anything you wish to show off during Show-n-Tell.

We will be discussing our room party plans for CONduit at this meeting.  We look forward to seeing everyone there.

19th Anniversary, March Meeting and March Activity

picard_clappingFirst: The USS Ticonderoga started as a Star Trek club on this date, March 9th, all the way back in 1996.  We met at the Clearfield Library to announce our launching (as the USS Euphrates, a chapter-in-training off of the USS Kelly) and then went to the Hill AFB Museum as the activity.  That was nineteen years ago.  How many clubs last for over nineteen years?  Congratulations to all of you who contribute towards the club.

Second: The March Meeting is coming up on Wednesday the 11th at 7:00pm.  And yes we are back at the Roy Library after having to find alternate locations for the last two months.  Bring your Star Trek show and tell items.  More importantly, bring a friend to introduce to the club.  Remember you gain 10 leadership points for each new recruit.

Third: Our March activity will be held on Saturday the 14th.  Lt. Richard Luke will be conducting a leather working class.  There is a $5 material fee for the items we are making (a rounder, a coin purse or a key-chain).  Please RSVP at the meeting so we have enough material.  We are also encouraging everyone to celebrate Pi Day by bringing a favorite pie.  This will start at noon at Starbase 40.   You may want to eat lunch before coming over.

Restoration of the website

2x11gLast month our site was vandalized and thanks to the great efforts of our host and our server guru, Jeff, we were able to get back online quickly.  We had to run with a default theme for a few days while we had a chance to get some stuff back into order.  If you find something that is wrong or a link that is missing, please let us know at our webmaster email address.  We are running with a new theme with some new rotating graphics in the header.  We hope to have some more new features posted soon.  Thanks for sticking with us and see you at the next meeting.

We’ve been busy and distracted

datassYes we are still around. We had a very busy and distracting September-December.  We did a ton of fundraising at the Salt Lake Comic Con last September.  We had multiple activities in October and November.  Our gaming events have exploded and we have been working on new newsletters.  And we continued to have a blast with the fireworks at our New Years Eve Party.  We’ve been planning future events, community service events and convention trips and room parties.

2015 will be very exciting for us.  Look for announcements and details soon.
