An Indoor Garage Sale for All Things F&SF!

KaCSFFS Meeting Date Changed! 
   Due to a maintenance-related issue, our Writers Place location is not available on our usual third Saturday, so we have "traded weekends" with the Laser Rangers
   This means the meeting happens THIS SATURDAY, July 14.
   As usual, the General Meeting starts at 6:30 p.m
   There also is an open Board Meeting beginning at 5:30 p.m., at which the budget--and, we hope, bids for next year's ConQuesT hotel--will be discussed.

Summer Swap 'N' Shop
Robin Bailey sold books
at an April 2011 meeting.
   Now is the time to root through your library and collectibles: what can you part with, to make room for new things? Consider bringing SF & F-themed:

  • Books
  • Magazines
  • Games
  • Art for resale
  • Music
  • Collectibles
  • Mugs, bowls, etc.
  • Clothing
  • Miscellany

the April 2011 Swap 'N' Shop
Once you've found some treasures that need new homes, remember to ALSO bring:

  • Table/Display equipment (we can't count on using many of the Writers Place tables)
  • Your own cash box (or whatever) and change (all transactions are between individuals)
  • Bags for your customers' purchases (do you have extra plastic grocery bags to bring?)
Salad Days!
Unfortunately, no recipe came with this "T-Rex Fruit Salad"
photo, but we'd love to see you try something similar!
   The food theme for this meeting is SALADS. 
   No, don't make a face (well, maybe you could make one)! Get creative! Play with our food, and explore the wonderful range of possibilities that lie in fruit, vegetable, pasta, potato, and many other types of salads.
   We found a wide range of wonderful salad recipes at the Smitten Kitchen and Delicious Cooks websites, so you have no excuses not to bring something inspired!
   As ever, we will get competitive. We will vote on, and give recognition certificates for:
  • Best-tasting salad
  • Most creative (edible) salad
   One warning, though: KAXFEN DON'T EAT BROCCOLI. We know this from years of sad broccoli leftovers. So don't even try, okay??
