WAMALUG: Meeting: December 9, 2000

George Mason University

4400 University Drive
Fairfax, Virginia

Christina made the original announcement of the meeting on lugnet.org.us.wamalug.

Jason reminisced in the 6928th message to the mailing list:

The more I think about it, the more I realize how fun this battle was. We actually started to form alliances and bring on some cool tactics near the end. Plus, the biggest chain reaction explosion I’ve ever seen or heard about. Too bad we all had to leave. I think the Jeff/John combo came the closest at the end, since they actually had the chest in hand.

Thanks to all for coming and participating. We got to see some great MOC s (I especially like John’s Tron-type tank and “the box.” Kudos to Pat Bunn for making the crashed spaceship. More than I expected, and fantastic. Notice how it even dominates every long shot in the pics.

Those transporter errors sure are nasty.

Rich was excited by all that had been accomplished:

Wow! What a meeting. We had nearly everyone at the meeting. It was gratifying to see such a turnout. Welcome Roy. I can’t speak for everyone, but I think it was great that you made special effort to get some stuff out and come out for the meeting. I hope we can see more stuff at either another meeting or at a show. For those who we know and didn’t attend, you were missed. For those that haven’t shown yourselves yet, you should have come and seen all the great stuff first hand.

We are a real organization now. We have a working charter that denotes what membership actually means and how to attain it. We’ve brought all of our diverse interests under one umbrella so that we can all be inspired by the unique talents of all our members. This by no means restricts any subgrouping from getting together; say BrikWars, or train meetings. This just means that when WAMALUG has a general meeting every interest is welcome and could be your time to show off some of your creations, and of course for some, an opportunity for trading.

We’ve grown so much in the the year that I’ve been associated with this group. It is my most profound hope that we continue to grow, and be enriching and enriched by all who come under our banner.
