Garyoke! (and Dinner)

Dinner starts at 7:00 pm and karaoke begins at 9:00 pm.  After 10 PM, the karaoke is only 21 and over.  Please bring cash to split the check as all orders at the table will be placed on one group bill.

If you plan to have alcoholic beverages, we ask that you ONLY order drinks at the bar and not on the group check. There is a full bar at the restaurant, so you can always use your own card to open a tab.

Please be aware that seating at the group table is reserved for those who RSVP.  Anyone without an RSVP is welcome to join us at this public event, but they will need to find their own table.

We will be competing for the coveted TARDIS trophy! Vote for your favorite TRTLoOC performer before midnight, and we’ll award the trophy to the TRTLoOC member with the highest votes (current holders of the trophy excluded). The winner gets to add their name to the Pedestal of Honor and proudly display the trophy until the next Garyoke!

DW Screening: U.N.I.T.! “The Claws of Axos” & “The Power of Three”

This month our theme screening is U.N.I.T., that intrepid band led by the immortal (well, he is now) Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart!  Our Classic story is 1971’s “The Claws of Axos”:

Inhabitants of an organic spaceship arrive and offer the world a solution to all its problems…only to be revealed as a vampiric force that threatens to suck the world dry as the Third Doctor and U.N.I.T. are drawn into battle with The Master. 

We’re also watching “The Power of Three”:

The Eleventh Doctor, Amy and Rory face an invasion of millions of black cubes that appear overnight. This story marks the introduction of Kate Stewart, U.N.I.T.’s scientific advisor and the daughter of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart …and features the greatest final shot in Who history!

What you should know about this screening:

• Bring $5 for pizza and drinks/snacks/desserts to share

• We have cats. They will be locked up, but if you have allergies, beware.

No-show/late drop out rules for screenings is in effect (late drop outs will be suspended from attending the next screening

See you there!

TRTLoOC Spring 2015 Fundraiser

The Time Lords of Orange County need your help for this year’s events! Since we do not require membership dues, we depend on donations from our members to help us fund our events.

This donation raffle fundraiser will run until April 30.

How does this work?

$1 will get you 1 entry into the donation raffle. You can donate at any of our events during this time or donate online through PayPal (bisforbee(at)live(dot)com – make sure to include your Meetup name!). Contact Benita through Facebook or Meetup if you have any questions.

When we hit a set goal of money donated, a name will be drawn for the prize that was unlocked for the level. (For example, when we hit $25, a Jack Harkness felt doll will be raffled!) If you win, you will be contacted either through Meetup or Facebook.

As we hit goals, a new prize will be unlocked! The following goal levels unlock these raffle prizes:

  • $25 – Jack Harkness felt doll
  • $40 – a set of 5 felt keychains
  • $50 – Doctor Who cookie cutters
  • $75 – Doctor Who character pillow

How much has been raised so far?

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!
