Meeting Date:  August 11, 1990.

Meeting Site:  Saddle River Valley Cultural Center, Upper Saddle River.

Official Attendance:

Meeting Program:  Talk by Fantasy Writer.




This meeting had originally been scheduled to be held at Dunkerhook Park in Paramus, New Jersey.  Rain was forecast, so we shifted the meeting indoors to the Cultural Center.  We set up a grill on the back staircase to the building. I believe that the service by Chuck and Bob referred to in the newsletter account was that they were the ones primarily watching the grill.

The gods of rain once again decided to visit us at our August 11, 1990 picnic.  They fortunately gave us warning of their intent, so we once again re-routed to the Saddle River Valley Cultural Center.


Esther Friesner and family graced us with their presence.  Esther read from a novel in progress and also talked about the stages of becoming a science fiction writers.


There were twenty-eight of us who made the indoor picnic.  Nancy Cucci and Nan were up from Alabama to visit.  They brought fellow Alabamans Richard Dabney and Karen Maulsby.  Mindy Richards shot in from Pennsylvania and introduced us to fellow Pennsylvanians John Schilling and Perry Weinthal.


Thanks to everyone involved in making the day a success, but especially to Charles Garofalo and Robert Yeager for service above and beyond the call.
