It isn't really relevant anymore. In the video, it mostly talks about the first meet up (yesterday), so I removed the link. But if you still wanna see it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5feQcsACM8c There you go.  :)

We did orientation, introductions, some stage combat, some full contact combat, took photos and ended with knighting three of the members. It was really fun! I loved how we all got along almost immediately and meshed pretty well. We had some people show up around 7:40pm, so we extended the meet up for almost another hour. We are all looking forward to the next meet up in two weeks.

EDIT: Oh, almost forgot. New video coming soon!

Greetings Darth! I was the fella with the Green lightsaber that showed up a little later ^\^ I had a few ideas i wanted to sling your way. I recall in your pre-meetup video you mentioned that PVC pipe wrapped with blue painters tape is a viable solution for those without the money to get Ultra or FX sabers.  I have another idea that may prove to be less damaging against our sabers: we should pool some money together and by 3-5 grab bag sabers with blades from ultrasabers.com so those who can't afford one can use the loaners. If we need to appoint a treasurer to handle the money i would gladly accept the responsibility ^\^ That's all for now, and I'm happy to see an Academy starting in Santa Cruz!

Ah yes, hi Brooke! We hope to work with Ultrasabers in some fashion that could help the academy, possibly in the instance that you mentioned. As for a treasurer, we would need to appoint a senior member to manage such a responsibility. But because you were the first to bring this up, we might just consider appointing you as treasurer. But you'd have to become either a Jedi Master or Sith Lord first. If you spend enough time to earn either of those ranks, that will tell us that you are a serious member that we can trust with such an important task. Good to have you with us on board. I have a feeling that your enthusiasm will greatly benefit the academy. :)

Hehe I have a feeling I would have been up there getting knighted if I had been able to come for the whole thing ^\^; Many of my friends comment on how good I am managing my funds and making payments on time so it would be no problem to take on such a task when I am deemed worthy :)

Don't worry, I have faith that you'll be a great Jedi Knight in no time. :)

Thank you for volunteering to be treasurer. Only time will tell at this point though.

If anybody is willing to replace the battery pack on my grab bag with the spare pack I already have, the Academy can have it. I just don't have a soldering iron anymore. It's been through a bit of abuse, but it's still intact. I'm just not a big fan of blue sabers.
