We had our meeting last Monday (5/7/01) at the Acapulco on Miramar.  Shannon
provided discount coupons - thank you Shannon.

The main topic discussed was the Comic-con event.  We decided that a panel would
be easier (and cheaper) than a booth.  Gerry & Shannon have a number of
contacts that they are willing to try to talk into being on the panel.

Gerry volunteered to contact David Brin, Bradbury, and someone in the movie business.
Shannon was going to hit up Kim Stanley Robinson, the Planetary society, NASA,
and (who knows) Tito.  Andrew was going to check with JPL to see if they would
have anyone for the panel.

We were all going to work on a 1 paragraph abstract for the panel.  "How SF has
inspired/influenced reality".

Andrew needed 2 more people to be listed on the web site so Gerry and I volunteered
for that.

A number of us (including me) ordered more food than we could eat and had to
resort to doggie bags.

The next meeting will be June 7th Thursday, 7pm at the Acapulco.
