Doctor Who Mystery Screening

As the Fifth Doctor said, “That’s the trouble with regenerations…you never know what you’re going to get.” And for our first screening of 2016, YOU’LL never know what you’re going to get until you show up! But rest assured, it’ll be a great Classic Who story as well as a NuWho story.
For our first screening at the Duck Club (detailed directions will come closer to the date in a subsequent email), we’re doing a potluck! The organizers will take care of all the drinks and utensils, so we’re leaving all the food choices up to you. Please list what you’ll be bringing in the comment chain below, and please read what others are bringing before you post, to avoid a lot of duplications and 50 bags of Doritos 😉 The only food we’ll have is what people bring!
And if you’d like to bring games to play, there’s plenty of room to play games in the outer area. See you there!

Pre-Big Finish Audio Club – Doctor Who (movie)

Are you bummed after the year without new Doctor Who announcement? Well, it’s the perfect time to catch up on Doctor Who audio stories from Big Finish!

This pre-Big Finish Audio meet-up will begin with a discussion about the 8th Doctor’s movie, Doctor Who. While it’s not Big Finish, it’s the only time we see the 8th Doctor outside of audio-stories and the 50th anniversary specials. Plus, the 50th anniversary special brought the 8th Doctor’s Big Finish stories into the show’s canon. If you haven’t seen the movie, make sure you watch it before the meet-up. This is not a screening; it’s a discussion.

Starting the first Friday in April, we will be discussing Big Finish audio-stories, typically on the first Friday of every month – think book club but with Big Finish audio-stories. Keep an eye out for the next meet-up to post.

27th Annual Gallifrey One Convention

The Gallifrey One Convention is the largest Doctor Who convention in the United States, and The Real Time Lords are excited to be a part of it!

If you plan on attending, please RSVP ‘Yes’ so that we can stay in touch with you about group activities – like dinner, karaoke, group photo, etc. – at the convention. You should also follow our Facebook event page for more up-to-date announcements about on-site activities by our members: https://www.facebook.com/groups/898265560293252/

If this is your first time attending Gally, be aware that there are some formal & informal convention activities start on Thursday night (aka “LobbyCon”). That’s why we’ve listed the event as starting on Thursday, even though the convention officially starts on Friday.

This year we will NOT have a fan table. The time that it takes to staff the table, organize games, etc., is not worth the minimal return we’ve seen over the past few years. We WILL however, be hosting our own event for the third year in a row! Stay tuned for more information about that event.

Please check back here for details about group activities, like Karaoke and the End-of-Gally dinner we’ll organize for Sunday night.

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!

Gally Preview Screening: “Black Orchid”/”Revelation of the Daleks”

It’s about that time – another Gallifrey One convention! And in honor of the 2 main guests at the con – Peter Davison and Colin Baker – we’re presenting a double feature of the Fifth and Sixth Doctors.

http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTDulB1XNZyo2XQ0j_BON2g65lZoMowgCIctXCHyFvarKpzNrykSumfVNw

“Black Orchid” – The Doctor and friends land in 1925 England to enjoy a holiday afternoon, but are swiftly accused of murder at a country estate.

“Revelation of the Daleks” – The Tardis lands on Necros, the location of the funeral home Tranquil Repose, where the Doctor faces a grisly trap from an old enemy.

NOTE: Start time is listed as 3 for a special reason: We Need Your Help to volunteer for a run-though of our Gallifrey Escape Room event – a series of puzzles and logic games – to make sure it runs smoothly. It’s going to be a fun game, and you’ll have our eternal gratitude! If you want to volunteer to help out and play the game, PLEASE show up NO LATER than 3 p.m.  If you can’t make it for the game simulation, that’s fine, the actual screening will start about 4:30. Thanks!

As usual, bring $5 for pizza, plus drinks/munchies/dessert. And those with allergies are reminded this is a cat home.

Remember, No-Show/late drop-out rules are in effect!
