Meeting #3124 Jun 26, 1997 PDF Print E-mail

President: Christian McGuire
Scribe: Pie'd Typer Beth O'Brien

Hampered by the lack of either of the gavels, President Christian McGuire nonetheless attempted to call the 3,125th meeting of the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society to order at 8:13 p.m. on Thursday, June 26, 1997. The meeting number was promptly corrected to 3,124 by the scribe. Motions to adjourn were ignored.

SPECIAL ORDERS OF BUSINESS: Charles Lee Jackson, II, reported the death this week of both scientist Jacques Cousteau, who provided new information to mankind as well as to science fiction writers, and motion picture actor Brian Keith, who appeared in several science fiction motion pictures during the course of his career.

Christian announced that, due to unusual circumstances, we would have two programs this evening instead of one. The first would be a Sage Break featuring author James Gunn, followed by the scheduled program featuring CLJII. Ed Green tried to move that all other formal portions of the agenda for this meeting be suspended until next week. That didn't fly, so Ed amended his motion to say that at exactly 8:25, regardless of who is speaking at the time, they get chopped off at the knees so that we adjourn to the special program. The motion passed many to 1 to few.

Treasurer Liz Mortensen announced that the draft of the new address list was posted and should be reviewed and corrected by members as necessary before being published.

CLJII announced that the scheduled program would be a presentation on the big screen of "More Like the Movies - My Life in Pictures," by CLJII. There will be refreshments.

Ed hastily AUCTIONed the three parking spaces for next month. PATRON SAINT Alan Frisbie was given three hasty cheers and a gilded something that got lost in the noise.

The Scribe had been notified off line that GUESTS Bill Quillinan of Norwalk, Herron Hollander of North Hollywood, and James Gunn of Lawrence, Kansas were present. Under pressure of the clock, Christian was able to introduce only James Gunn, the unexpected speaker of the evening.

After Dr. Gunn's talk, the Scribe moved to ADJOURN the meeting and was informed that the meeting had already been adjourned (apparently at 8:25 p.m.) How nice! I can live with that.

Respectfully submitted,
Pie'd Typer Beth O'Brien
