76th Meeting: The State of Geekdom

It seems these days that everybody who’s ever watched a Marvel Cinematic Universe film has a podcast about “Geek Culture.” While our idea of adventure is somewhat broader than just Geekly pursuits, at least several Gents are long-time, dyed-in-the-wool Geeks. In this meeting, four Gents discuss the state of Geekdom in 2016, and what it means to be a geek when everybody is one.

Agenda Items:

  1. Opening Toast by Capt. Lee Dunteman, DoGA GA
  2. Adventure Ideas
  3. Open Discussion: The State of Geekdom in 2016
  4. Welcoming a New Chapter: Tacoma, WA
  5. Closing Toast

The Lost 13th Meeting: Zombies!

Our more observant followers may have wondered what happened between our 12th and 14th meetings. I’m pleased to announce that just in time for Halloween (okay one day late), we have searched the Archives to discover the meeting that was thought to be lost to the great aether. Here then, is the meeting wherein the Gents discuss the walking dead and all things Zombie!

On the Agenda:

1. Introduction of the attending Gents and Opening Toast by Gregory Bass

2. Open Discussion on the topic of Zombies in popular culture

3: Advice from a Gentleman presented by Lee Dunteman: In case of Zombie Apocalypse, make a pact

4: Open Discussion on the topic of what to do if you find yourself in the middle of a Zombie Apocalypse

5: Closing Toast led by Derek Bass

16th Meeting: Barguments

Gentleman Jesse makes a triumphant, yet fleeting, return as Sergeant at Arms to discuss the hallowed subject of Barguments.

On the Agenda:
1. Induction of new members to the proud ranks of the League.
2. Open Discussion on the subject of Barguments. Listen in to find conclusive and definitive answers to questions such as “Who would win in a fight between Picard and Kirk?” and “Which is a better superpower, flying or invisibility?”
3. Jesse is surprised.
4. Gentleman Lee delivers a slightly tipsy closing toast to the “speer aventrrrrr,” which we believe translates to the “Spirit of Adventure!”
