Sat Sept 20th, the crew of the U.S.S. Tiburon will be taking part in the Miracle Party Foundation’s 7th Annual Miracle Party. Our mission is to provide children fighting cancer, their families, friends, and communities with a celebration they will remember forever: a night to forget cancer. This is a party for children with cancer and angel families thrown once a year. We believe that everyone needs one night to forget the negatives, struggles and pain from our journeys, and come together to celebrate our children no matter where we are in our journey.

As a child, our Chief Operations Officer Lee Montgomery, was diagnosed with a cancerous pediatric brain tumor. Now a 31 year survivor, this is an event that he and the crew is proud to be a part of.  Some of the crew will be attending in character and as species from the Star Trek universe, and will be running the Klingon Bop. Everyone who is available to attend in costume and interact with the children is welcome! It is all about letting them live life for a few hours and forget about the difficulties they still face.

Outdoor Fun

Hey everyone, it’s Fleet Captain Jennifer Sontag reporting from the bridge of the USS Tiburon.  Sorry I haven’t been up on my reporting but the tribbles are becoming teenagers and I have to be referee.

I have had the privilage of exploring many new worlds with the crew of the Tiburon. We explored the wonders of Roxborough State park and Cherry Creek Park. It was fun to see the crew let loose and have a little fun. I have put together a few of the pictures from both hope like them.

I will be back next month with an article on my favorite time of the year, Halloween!!! roxbourgh 2014 048roxbourgh 2014 026roxbourgh 2014 009roxbourgh 2014 018

 

 

USS Tiburon General Meeting, September 7th @ 1pm

The USS Tiburon is proud to announce the date of it’s September meeting!

September 7th the USS Tiburon will be holding its general meeting at the Aurora Fire Station No.2 located on Hoffman Blvd (12600 Hoffman Blvd 80011). The gathering will start at 1 PM, and last until about 4 PM.

What is a general meeting you ask? Well simply put it’s a meeting where members, friends and invited guests can come together and discuss Tiburon activities, events and socialize. There maybe game playing or whatever else we might want to do.

There is a parking lot on the Southwest side of the Fire Station that we are to use.

 

So . . . exactly what does the crew of the USS Tiburon do?

championship-F4DAFor those of you wondering about what exactly the crew of the USS Tiburon does when we’re not walking around in costume at Denver Comic Con or at the Colorado Springs Sky Sox games the events of this weekend and this coming weekend will give you a pretty good idea.

On Saturday August 23 we gathered at Tiburon Headquarters and gathered around the TV to watch the MLL (major league lacrosse) Championship game between the Denver Outlaws and the Rochester Ratlers. In a hard fought battle the Outlaws prevailed and brought Denver its first MLL Championship. This was then followed by the crew watching the Denver Bronco’s pre-season game, viewing of the previews for the, hopefully to be produced direct to DVD/Blue-Ray, Star Trek: Axenar, and the season premier of Dr Who.

Sunday August 24 found us gathering at Cherry Creek State Park for beach day. Members were caught chatting, eating, and spending large periods of time swimming. A poofball football (basically a generic Nerf) was also seeing being thrown about.

As for what’s coming up . . . Sunday August 31 we’ll be meeting up at Headquarters before we head out to Roxborough State Park for a nature walk and, possibly, light hike. After that . . . who knows – game day? bbq? bowling? hang out and chat late into the night? go our own ways and meet up with other friends? With the USS Tiburon you never can tell.

And that’s part of what I like about this group. Well that and the fact that anyone can come to any event they like whenever they like. Members also tend to pick and choose what events they want to participate in. For all you newbies and old timers (like me) that are reading this if you don’t like or can’t for some reason make an event but want to hang out with us afterward all ya gotta do is let us know and we’ll be sure to keep you in the loop. Being a member DOESN’T mean that you have to show up for everything (there are things that I won’t do and I’ve been with this group for 4 years and am still welcome).

We’ve also been seen at Celtic Festivals, the Dragon Boat races, bowling, the Renaissance Faire and several other non-convention locations. We’re also ALWAYS on the lookout for new and fun things to do. We never watched lacross until one day this year we were offered some tickets to a game - now several of us are hooked.

Keep a look out for future notices through Open Waters for dates, times, and meet up locations for upcoming events.

Hope to see YOU (yes, you the person reading this, seriously) at an upcoming event.

Regards,

The First Officer
