hey guys. i've been thinking about planning *the chamber party* so i need some input. my complex has a little pool (it's in-ground, about five feet deep, usually empty, open until 7pm). so, instead of having an evening house party, there's an option that we have the party at my house in the day and whoever wants can go swim in the pool. i'm not crazy about the idea because it seperates the group, but if some people want to swim, it could be fun.

anyway, answer these poll questions because i need to know this stuff!

please get every chamber member you know to answer this. if i don't have enough answers i'll have no idea what to do and we won't have a party. haha.

Poll #502732 chamber party 2005

first of all, do you even care if we have a chamber party?

no.
1(12.5%)
it would be nice.
1(12.5%)
yeah, we gotta have one!
6(75.0%)

would you perfer an evening house party type thing or something in the afternoon (saturday or half day)?

evening
1(12.5%)
afternoon
1(12.5%)
doesn't matter (but please try to pick one!)
6(75.0%)

how do you feel about having the pool be an option?

sounds great, i wanna go swimming!
2(25.0%)
i don't care.
2(25.0%)
i wouldn't go swimming, but it'd be fun to be by the pool.
2(25.0%)
i think it would seperate the group.
1(12.5%)
i think it'd be more fun without the pool.
1(12.5%)

here are possible dates for the chamber party. check your calendars and tell me which ones you CAN NOT come to.

friday, june 3rd (next friday)
1(25.0%)
friday, june 10th
0(0.0%)
saturday, june 11th (maybe?)
1(25.0%)

any other date suggestions? i don't know when half days are or anything.

any other suggestions for the party in general? (yes, i know everyone wants DDR. something besides that!)

is anyone else dying to host the party? if so, let me know and you can deal with all this stuff.

no questions asked, you guys were all amazing tonight.

i'm so proud of us! i have pictures on my livejournal but i'm too tired to post them here. maybe i will tomorrow? or something?

nyssma majors tomorrow. the fun never ends, huh?

now it's onto planning for... THE CHAMBER PARTY. i'll probably host it again (unless someone else is dying to). we need to decide a date and such. for those who don't know, last year we had a chamber party after the concert to celebrate chamber's greatness. a good time was had by all.

ahhhhhhhh i'm tired.
