The Legion of Rassilon is the San Francisco Bay Area’s Doctor Who fan club, established in 1982 as a chapter of the North American Doctor Who Appreciation Society (NADWAS).

We meet on the fourth Friday of the month (and the occasional fifth Friday.) Meetings generally consist of news and reviews of Doctor Who and other science fiction titles, a raffle and viewing of Doctor Who or related programs (Torchwood, Sarah Jane Adventures, Class.)

Sorry about the panic of the previous post. After I had posted it, I had a recollection that there was a Denny's I hadn't looked at in a while (we didn't bother with Denny's in the BASFA relocation, so I'd almost forgotten about it.) It's located at Bascom Av near the Pruneyard in Campbell. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Denny's/@37.2857033,-121.9334176,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x808e34e90b293a25:0xd71e1ce3c00f8edf!8m2!3d37.2856991!4d-121.9312236

I actually spoke with the manager, and Friday's are available. The location is also home to other organizations' meetings. The room seems cramped, but the manager says it seats 40 (we're generally about 20). The same minimum that we have at IHOP is in effect here.

Ignore this post! (I was panicking)


The continuing saga of locating a new meeting space.

It’s looking like Friday evenings are also a stumbling block, as it can be a busy time for many restaurants.

In the old days, we would meet at libraries and schools (until the County Office of Education took us in at KTEH.) San Jose libraries, however, forbids raffles (haven’t checked Santa Clara County) but that would loose food service (and may not allow food in meeting rooms - again, will have to check).

So, do we switch our meeting day, or move away from restaurants?

Arrrgh... I give up on the proposed Denny's relocation for this month. Can't seem to get ahold of the manager, and leaving my number didn't seem to work. Plus, they've been burned by another group and the last person I talked to in length seemed to think they don't want to do separate checks (not even the separation of the check we currently do).

I have another location in mind, but I need to figure out if it would suit our needs (or if I'd get lynched for even suggesting it). The hours are good (open to 11 on Friday), and it's might be more convenient traffic wise (at least for those coming up from the south and east.) The problems are no door on the meeting room to shut in or out noise, and a big west facing window (not sure if there are shades).

So I think the IHOP will have to be our November meeting place.
