That's right, you are reading this correctly. On January 11th, 2003 the first ever New Jersey Fan Force meeting occurred in Freehold, NJ at the Barnes & Noble. 5 JCers were able to attend, and a 6th member who will be taught the ways of the JC, showed up and managed to have fun and break ground. Minutes We went over an itinerary that was created in most part by Darth_Gyos. We also elected some members of the Council. Co-President - Jedi_Satimber & Darth_Gyos for a 1 year term. Treasurer - Padawan915. Council Rep - Ghosts_of_Anakin for a term of 6 months. Utility Rep - buster726. Collecting - Charles Kovacs (he is not yet a member of TF.N). Terms for some Council members have not been determined as of yet. Also, not all Council members have been determined yet. Secretary has not been filled, but Arldetta has expressed much interest. The second meeting has been tentatively scheduled for February 8, 2003. We have decided that meetings should be once a month and in different locations each time. This opens up the state to some people who have not been to certain cities. We have also decided on doing charity events, social events and gatherings that any New Jerseyian would normally do. Also, we have decided that a Website of our own is necessary, [link=http://pub14.ezboard.com/bonewiththeforce]my personal website[/link] may not do, but it will be a starting ground. We figured a place that can have a banner and things like that. At the second meeting, we should definitely discuss icon and banner ideas. If anybody has website experience (design) or artistic ability (icons and banners) or you know someone that can help us, step forward. In following, I suggest that since we will be getting a little more personal (like first names and such) that each member of the NJ FF post a small bio/introduction. Things like name, why you like SW or how you got involved with SW & your home town (to make future meetings more accessible to everyone). Myself, I am Shawn Adams. I currently reside in Riverside, NJ. I am 29 years old, and have watched all 5 SW films in the theater on their first run. My order of favs of the films is semi-cloudy, except that ESB is my least favorite of the movies. I am married and have 1 child.
