    As we move ahead in our 10 th year of The North Ridge, I thought we might want to not only document the year, but also look back to the past 10 years. Feel free to share your memories, funny stories, pictures, or any experiences you've had.

    10 years ago, the group was not yet formed.

    If memory serves me correct, we appeared at a Niagara University hockey game in January around 2003. This was our lesson for first, why you don't follow my car when caravanning and second, that dueling on ice is not for the faint of heart.

    Chalk up a hockey locker room as another unusual place that we've changed. Oh, the smell....

    I didn't stumble upon the group until the summer of 2003. I was recently home from my first year at college, and wondered if there were any local fan groups to help fill up some of my free time that summer. Lo and behold, I found the forums, and joined the group.

    I remember the IMAX event and also the NU event... My favorite was the "The 'Con' at the Summit". We were originally given a small (5 ft by 20 ft) no door, unlit dressing room until we commandeered a much larger and private area to change. It was nice as that we got to hang out with Dave Prowse and Felix Silla. Still remember the DJ repeatedly saying "Bob-Ah" Fett.

    I remember when Chris and Co. were doing Star Wars trivia at the Regal Transit theater when I went to see Attack of the Clones on IMAX in 2001(?) 2002(?)
    Then it wasn't until the BPO concert on that snowy November night in 2005 that I hatched my evil plan by revealing that I had TK armor.

    If it wasn't for a chance meeting with Lisa at the Regal when Revenge came out I wouldn't be part of the group. I can say it was the oddest exchanges I have ever been apart of.

    I remember my first event 1st dvd release of the original trilogy in 2005 at the Media Play on the Blvd. I also remember one of the worst events ever 1) Con Con at Summit Park Mall. The only positives were hanging with Dave Prowse and Felix Sila.

    The first Bison's game appearance I did which was when the BPO was there and we had a huge rain delay. (go figure)

    I wasn't involved with The North Ridge at the time, but my first memories of the group were from the premiere of Ep. III - Revenge Of The Sith at the Market Arcade in downtown Buffalo back in 2005. What a birthday present that was for me (the premiere actually WAS on my birthday - May 19, 2005)!!!

    I joined just a bit after Steve Lu--my first meeting was October or November of 2009. Kind of hard to believe I've been hanging out with all of you for three years now! I didn't know about the Bison's game when I joined but it has definitely been one of the highlights. Another great thing was being able to have people from the group with which to share Celebration VI. I joined in the hopes of finding some fun people who shared my love of Star Wars. The group has been way more fun than I ever could have dreamed.
    -Here's to another 10 years!

    Chris asking trivia question before IMAX:AOTC, and mom practically shoving Amanda and I out of our seats to go down and answer a question.

    My highlights would have to be seeing Marty onstage during the BPO performance, and of course, my recent debut on the field at the Bisons game. Finally.
