How's that for a bunch of fun? We are always willing to add events to the calendar if you'd like to propose something, provided the group approves. It certainly helps if you're willing to lead the way with planning, but it's not necessary.

Now it's time to move on with our year. Please join us at the October meeting for the yearly awards ceremony. Make sure you've paid your dues, too!! Remember that they're all due in September. We're sure to find a nice place for dinner after the meeting, too, so plan for that.

See you around the galaxy!


2017 Bowling Party Wrap Up

Thanks for joining us for the 513th bowling least I think we've had that many!  Just to let those that couldn't attend know what happened:

Jack Langhoff scored big and Phill Goldman did too.  And sweet Jenna Cruz was kind enough to laugh with our need to practice award this year!

18 people bowled at least 2 games each, everyone seemed to have a great time trying to out score themselves and everyone else as well!

It also seemed to be voted that we have another bowling party in 2018.  Therefore look for the next one after our 2018 Sept. general membership meeting!    Join a league and start practicing so you can touch the USS Nokomis bowling trophy and have your picture taken! Peanut gallery be ready to cheer!

Mall Scavenger Hunt

A Mall scavenger hunt is a lot of fun. Each team of 2 or 3 people run around a shopping mall, locating and photographing the answers to clues.  The team with the most completed clues wins.

We've done this event a few times in the past, and we have one scheduled for November 11, 2017.  Sounds good, right?

There's a signup sheet available for you.

We'll let you know the rest of the plans at the October meeting.

Dinner after Bowling Has Moved

For those who signed up....The dinner tomorrow after bowling has been moved. Boca Chica has changed their policy and could not accommodate us. The new location is Joseph's Grill. The address is 140 Wabasha Street, just down from Boca Chica. If you are signed up, we'll see you at 5pm!

Star Trek with the Minnesota Orchestra was FASCINATING!

On Friday, July 14th, an away team from the Nokomis attended a showing of the 2009 movie Star Trek at Orchestra Hall with full accompaniment by the Minnesota Orchestra.  Hearing the soundtrack played live was an amazing experience.  Many fans who attended dressed up in Star Trek uniforms and other costumes, including the entire brass section!  Many of us said we'd like to attend other types of screenings like this in the future.

Many thanks to Aida Cruz for this awesome suggestion!  Way to dive right in as a new member!

Captain’s Log September 2017

Greetings, Crew!

Here we are, back to a new year of fun. September is the beginning of our club year and we have lots of great things in store, as always. We'll start out on the 9th with our general membership meeting and annual bowling party. We've invited the other clubs to attend, so help pass the word if you know folks who'd like to come. We hope you'll join us at Boca Chica afterwards, so please add your name to the list for the reservation.

At the September meeting we always unveil our upcoming calendar. You'll hear all of the things the Governing Board proposes for October 2017 to December 2018. Then the membership will approve that calendar and we'll start to plan. Keep in mind that the calendar is always evolving, so any social or charitable event you crave could become a reality. Just suggest it to a board member for consideration.

If you haven't come to the last few October meetings, you'll want to make it this year. This will be our third annual awards session and review of our year. It's amazing what fun things we do!

We are currently looking for a fun activity for our December calendar, so if you have an idea let's hear it! We've done everything from outdoor activities to fancy parties to theater outings, so anything is fair game. We'll discuss this decision at the September meeting.

I hope everybody is enjoying the late summer offerings in the area, from the Fair to the RenFest to apple orchards and more. See you around the galaxy!


The Super Swell Movie Night was Super Swell

On August 26th we had a nice time at the backyard movie night. We weren't in the back yard due to the rainy weather, but that didn't stop the fun.

Our theme was Halloween in August. We watched two episodes of extraordinary high quality - Spock's Brain and Catspaw. Our menu included Sylvia's Salad, Transmuter Pie and Sigma Draconis Pie (regular and Vegan shepherd's pies), Brain and Brain Cake, Morg and Eymorg Cookies and Korob's Wands. Popcorn capped the evening as we watched several documentary segments from the Roddenberry Vault. Previously unseen original series footage is rare, so it was especially fun to see these programs.

We were sad that the Star was missing, but she was here with us in spirit, we're sure. I am thankful that Lynne stepped in with great ideas and lots of work so our event could go on. Thanks also to Phill and Jack for their part in the evening and to everyone that attended.
