September Newsletter
Promoting the meeting…it’s a slow month here at Demon Central
SOME THOUGHTS ON STUFF
Not a lot of organizational news this month. The promotion system is rolling on – and seems to be working fairly well. There isn’t any major shakeups in the mix, and nothing to comment on or give a sneak preview of.
Um…happy Labor Day?
Really the only news I have here is that we are hosting the September Meeting & TG22.1 Meet-up at Cantigny Park on the 23rd. This will be the first time we try to get folks in from the entire Group, and I hope to see you all there! I have some RSVPs, and need to have commitments soon so that we can get the food secured, and have some idea who is coming.
The meeting will be on the same day as a vintage baseball tournament, which will be a lot of fun – the sport was really different in the 1800s, and this will give everyone a chance to see the changes time has brought us!
So please RSVP by the 15th so that we can plan – and let me know what you’re bringing to the party! Rick has already called ‘dibs’ on brats & potato salad.
For those less interested in baseball, the tank park and 1st Infantry Division museum are open again as well!
Let me know you are coming by email or on the Facebook event!
TESTING!
As a reminder, all Spacers 3/c are responsible for airlock seal inspections, hull washing, and explosive decompression drills. Suits are for closers.
Test up to get better assignments today!
COMING EVENTS
WindyCon
We made a huge splash here last year, and want to do so again. If you only make one convention this year, this is the one! I hope to see everyone there – it’s a big deal.
Check out the convention page for more details, and we will add events into the Facebook calendar shortly.
SEPTEMBER MEETING
Meeting Time!
We are going to return to Cantigny Park in Wheaton, IL on the 23rd. They are hosting a vintage baseball day, which can be a lot of fun to watch. So, we will be seeing about getting some space and doing a potluck style event.
I will be posting this on Facebook, and we need to get interested parties signed up by the end of August, so we know what to expect.
POSITIONS OPEN
I am still looking for Deputy COLAC, Bosun, and XO. These postings are intended to be a source of future command triad members, so you need to be willing and able to test to the proper levels.
This is a great introduction to the command and leadership side of the chapter, and is ideal for anyone interested in moving up! Due to the far-flung nature of the ship, you need not be located in the Chicago area, this can be done remotely.
Send your statement of interest to co@35.203.0.188, thank you!
