Fleet Dinner II: The Wrath of Dinner

The original intent of the Fleet Dinner back in January was to make a few key announcements to formalize the goals of Fleet 31 going forward. We had originally thought about possibly having another dinner in July just for fun, but our growth has been so explosive that we’ve gone ahead and scheduled it for June 22.

So of course, where are we having this dinner? IHOP, naturally! After spending a few hours looking for a location that had relatively low prices, with food for everyone’s tastes, and both a party room and parking enough to accommodate such a huge party, we came to the realization that our old standby was the answer. As often as some of us eat there before and/or after conventions, it should have been obvious to us from the start!

We have a figurative ton of announcements to make this time, which is still amazing to me considering we had everything completely covered at the last dinner just five months ago! We’ve had several ship commissions, and a whole slew of major promotions to acknowledge, and we’ve already got upward of 30 crew and family RSVP’d for the event as of this writing.

Formalities have never really been my thing, but I can honestly say I am downright excited for this one.

First Contact Day 2013

So, it’s the 50th pre-anniversary of First Contact with the Vulcans. And what else would Fleet 31 do on a day like today, a commemoration of peace? War. That’s right, we’re going to Main Event in Plano to engage in war games and tactical exercises. So if you’re bored today/tonight and don’t know what you want to do, come on out and play laser tag with us!

And to top things off, tomorrow morning is the Walk For Wishes, benefitting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. If you’re thinking it’s too late to join us, you can stil register and/or donate here, with more details on Facebook.

Happy First Contact Day – Live Long and Prosper.

Silver Lining

First, the bad news:
We are putting our “First Contact Day Charity Extravaganza” on rain delay, since we feel that it is more important to put the success of the fundraiser ahead of celebrating a specific holiday. Given the relatively short planning time allotted to this project, we are pushing back the event to take better advantage of our resources.

The good news is that we will still be celebrating First Contact Day on the night of April 5, 2013, most likely with laser tag and/or bowling, although the event will be casual. The morning of April 6, we will still participate in the Walk For Wishes. For more information on the walk, please visit Fleet 31 at Walk For Wishes.

We need all the help we can get, so please join our team and walk with us, or donate through our team page.
