Life After NARFA?

So, According to LJ, I was the last to post here in 2008.
it's now March 13'th 2012 and Not a soul has posted anything..

Does NARFA as a entity even still exist?

or even more important, should it still exist?

BIG FUN, NO WHAMMIES! - Megaplex 2007 News - January 2007



Happy New Year from all of us at Megaplex 2007!

I'LL TAKE A HOTEL ROOM TO (FILL OUR) BLOCK

ATTENTION! Reservations close on *January 30, 2007*, so get your rooms as soon as possible! Less that a month left to go to get your room at the con rate!

This year, Megaplex 2007 will be held at the Wyndham Jacksonville Riverwalk, in downtown Jacksonville, Florida. The hotel is just off of I-95, on the Southbank of the St. John's River. Full directions can be found on our web site (http://www.ppmp.info).

Reservations at the hotel can be made ON-LINE this year! This method requires a credit card to use. Here's how:

1) Surf to http://www.wyndham.com/hotels/JAXHT/main.wnt .

2) Click on the "Get Rates or Make A Reservation For This Hotel" link, just under the hotel's address.

3) On the next page...

The Wyndham is a short distance from the Museum of Science and History (MOSH), Friendship Park, and River City Brewing Company, which can easily be reached via the Riverwalk. The hotel is also a stop for the S.S. Marine Taxi service (http://www.jaxwatertaxi.com), which is a convenient way to get to the shops and restaurants at the Jacksonville Landing (http://www.jacksonvillelanding.com). You can also utilize the nearby Skyway service to get to the Landing (http://www.jtaonthemove.com/services/skyway.aspx), or take a pleasant stroll over the Main Street Bridge. For those wanting to stay on the hotel's side of the river, eateries and stores can be found a short walk away in the San Marco shopping district.

We'll have additional information on attractions and amenities on our web site soon, as well as how to get there from Jacksonville International Airport. In the meantime, if you have a question about Florida's First Coast, drop Karl Meyers a line at mp-ceo@pawpet.org. (He lives there, after all! :)

NOW, FOR OUR FEATURE PRESENTA...oops, sorry, last year's theme. :)

Thanks Giving NARFA pot luck.

It’s almost Thanks Giving again,

Time for the annual Thanks Giving Pot Luck. I will be making my 12-15 pounds German glazed ham, home made baked mac n’ cheese, spiced carrots, and rice crispy treats.

I will be serving at 6pm on Thanks Giving Day (Novemeber 23rd), in my apartment if you are going to attend, please bring at least one pot luck item of your choice. You might want to show up on time because the Ham goes fast (There is never any left for late comers).

Thanks
