trips 05/19/2008

Earlier, we had planned to take trips to:

1) IKEA and

2) The Nordic Heritage Museum

First of all, I would like to ask if there is still interest in making these trips before the end of the year.  If not, do we want to do any of this in the summer or wait until next year?

On the calendar, I have moved the IKEA trip to a Saturday afternoon.  Is anyone opposed to this?  Is it maybe a better idea to replace one of our fika meetings with an IKEA outing?  The most important thing here is that we need someone with a car.  Let me know how you feel about this.  And if you have a car and will be going, please respond to this post with when you can go and how many people you can fit in your car/van/truck/boat/airplane.

For the Nordic Heritage Museum visit, we need to keep in mind that they close at 4pm.  Shall we do this on a weekday or on a weekend?  Do we want to do this before the end of the quarter?  I have arbitrarily placed this event on the calendar, so let me know if there are any strong opinions here.  

If you don't regularly attend meetings, but would really like to go with us to these places, your vote counts too so don't be afraid to pipe in, especially if you have a car.  This is a great way to get to know the people in the club.

I have a car! Saturday doesn't work for me because I work though :-( unless it's pretty late then we have no time. MWF in the later afternoon work for me, however.

My car can comfortable sit three passengers, four with a little squeezing. That's plus me, the driver ;-)

I would be most interested in going to IKEA, but might join you for the museum.

That Saturday would work for me. I have a car, too. Morning would work best--but if it's a sure 'go' than afternoon should be okay, too. I can take myself and five or six passengers.

My schedule is fairly open: Saturday would work for me, and on MWF I am free after 11:20. I love the bus--I don't have a car. :)

M, T, W and Sunday are best for me, and I do have a Civic, so I could seat 4 plus myself. Either event sounds good!

the planned Saturday works for me! I will be in Tacoma that weekend, so I would be driving myself from there. If anyone will be near Tacoma during that day I can see about giving rides. The car I'm driving can fit 5 + myself. I won't be able to give any rides to & from Seattle though. Other than Saturdays, Thursdays and Fridays are best for me.

If I have a ride, I can make it. If not, I'll probably waltz home to my family and the seven cats. I'm always willing to provide gasoline compensation to the driver. I hope this input is sagolikuttmärksuperduperspectacularly helpful

Has a decision been made about IKEA? I am still waffling. I do have a car. It did occur to me that if people are tempted to buy stuff, we might want more cars than usual! Saturday May 24 works for me. What time?

Also, I would be interested in the musuem. They have a new exhibit opening on Latvians in Washington (starts June 6). Ballard is fun. Weekends work best for me.

Just to give my two cents on the Ikea trip, I can probably make it next Saturday (and there is a good chance I could bring my car and provide rides to 3 people). As for this weekend, I won't be around, but if you guys do go, have fun!

Are we planning for this Saturday or the next one? I am going home today since I understood the IKEA trip to take place next week. Can some one explain this to me once and for all via email? Tack ska ni ha!

Jag anser att det ska bli nästa lördag då, eller hur? I just checked the calender, and a calender hardly ever changes its mind. Epost mig om scheman ska ändras. 1000 tack/1000 plus ett tack till, eller tacktack för de som ger förklaringen, och tusen tack till för de som ska köra.

I think I can make the ikea trip on saturday and I do have a car.

So I should be able to go, and I'm trying to get my jeep which is spacious if people are going to buy things, and it holds me + 4 others pretty comfortably. :-)

I can't come on May 31. I have a conflict. But do have fun! Handla till ni faller omkull!
