Fair ladies and good gentlemen, I invite you to an organizational meeting for all interested parties for the inauguration of the Cowford Florida Steampunk Society.
I apologize in advance for taking the liberty to set the time and place, but alas too much discussion leads to too much dissention. I fear that it is a universal maxim that you can not accommodate everyone, but please know that I did the best I could to accommodate the most people.
Mark your calendars and set your mechano-cartographer into action for Saturday, November 8th, 2008 at the Pablo Creek Library, 13295 Beach Blvd Jacksonville (904-992-7101). Time of the room reservation is from Noon ‘til 2:00 pm.
For this event, regalia is not a necessity, personas are not required, and there is no parking for airships. Bring your garb, your props, and your pictures of your work if you desire. Bring your writings, your sketches, but most of all bring your geek and constructive ideas to build upon this foundation.
While not being a fan of tight formats, yet being versed in Roberts Rules of Order I have set a loose agenda for the meeting in order to maximize the time we have.
-Call to Order
-Discussion on the group format.
-Discussion of future events.
-Show and tell, lecture, workshop, what have you.
-Possibly retreat to an establishment for a meal or tea.
I feel this should cover every thing for our first meeting, and future topics can be fleshed out in subsequent gatherings.

Vice-Admiral Rudolph Beggley
