Doctor Who Series 9 Premiere!

The Doctor Will See You Now! The spectacular Doctor Who Series 9 premiere is almost here, and we’ll be celebrating in a big way! On September 19, Premiere Night, we’ll be gathering at a huge new venue: Urban Workshop in Costa Mesa.  In addition to the new episode, there will be fan videos, a cosplay contest, music, food, and other surprises.  It’s like a Gallifrey convention in September, just with a few less people!

The episode itself looks to be a great one: Guest-starring Michelle Gomez, David Tennant, Paul McGann, John Barrowman, and Simon Pegg as the Rani, the story finds the Doctor, Clara, and the Master teaming up with the 10th Doctor, the 8th Doctor, and Captain Jack against the Daleks, the Weeping Angels, and the Rani (who has regenerated into a man) to save Gallifrey, which has finally been discovered – inside Torchwood headquarters!

(and if you believe that…)

For this event, we’re allowing +1’s (21+ only, please), so if you know a Who fan who has never been  to one of our events, bring them along! And if you’ve never been to one of our events, this is definitely the time to come and check us out!

More details on the event and the location will be forthcoming in a subsequent e-mail closer to the event date, but get your RSVP in now! It’s the start of an amazing season of Doctor Who, and you’ll want to be there from the start!

NOTE: Remember to bring $5 for pizza, and dessert/munchies/drinks, as per usual. If you bring a +1, they will also need to contribute $5 for the food.

New Member Meet & Greet

Are you new to the Real Time Lords? Have you been “lurking” for a while, but have been too nervous or busy to attend our events?

The New Member Meet & Greet is for you!

We’re now hosting regular ‘Meet and Greet’ events to give new(er) members or those who haven’t been to many of our events the opportunity to get your feet wet, without the fear of noisy bars or long waitlists. :-)

At these events, you’ll learn more about other members, their fandom and our group as a whole over a quiet, casual dinner in a low-key environment.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:

For the Meet & Greet events, we ask that:

• All new and infrequent members try to attend at least one Meet & Greet after joining the group. (It’s not mandatory, but it will be a really good way to break the ice and learn more about the Real Time Lords and our members!)

• Core/Active members give new and newish members first dibs on RSVPs

• Core/Active members can attend, but only if the event is less than 50% full one week from the event date. I will send out an email a week prior to the event encouraging RSVPs.

• Due to the size of our group, individual checks at dinner may not be an option. PLEASE BRING CASH TO PAY FOR YOUR PART OF THE MEAL!

For questions, call Amanda at 949-466-8470, or contact me through Meetup.

We’ll see you there!

Game Night & Classic Who Screening – “The Curse of Fenric”

Its time for another TRTLoOC Game Night & Screening!  This time we will be viewing the classic 7th Doctor story, “The Curse of Fenric.”  

“The Doctor and Ace are put to the ultimate test when the TARDIS materializes in Second World War England at a top-secret naval base. The army church, built on Viking graves, bears inscriptions calling for the wolves of Fenric to return for their treasure. Thereafter, evil will reign. Even as the Doctor translates the inscription, hideous corpses rise up from the sea, and the evil Fenric is now free to summon his wolves to a killing rampage.”

Have a favorite tabletop game?  Bring it!  We’ll have several games there – Chrononauts, Munchkin, Star Fluxx, Pandemic, etc – but the more games we have, the better the night will be! 

Schedule of Events: 
  – 4pm-5pm: Welcome / Sign-in  
  – 5pm-8pm: Board Game Spectacular!  
  – 8pm-10pm: Classic Who Screening – “The Curse of Fenric”

Bring $5 cash to the event to help cover the cost of food and party supplies. We’ll provide dinner and munchies as well as non-alcoholic drinks. Alcohol is always welcome – nay encouraged – but please BYOB.

We’ll announce the menu via email prior to the event, but will have items for both meat-eaters and vegetarians alike.

Please remember that parking is limited around the UC-Irvine campus, so carpooling is encouraged. If you are interested in being a carpoolee or carpooler, let others know by posting in the comments below.  

This event will abide by all TRTLoOC rules & policies.  Click the following link for more details:  http://www.meetup.com/OCTimeLords/pages/Group_Rules/
