    halo,

    a bunch of local FF chapters combined and had a really nice time watching episode i through vi (including both volumes of clone wars, but that can be discussed below) in someone's home cinema+front screen projector. we did that in last june (2005). we all felt that we needed to continue this sort of tradition&sorta' keep rekindling the fandom alive for the years to come.

    thus, it is now 2006 and coming closer to may-june (the opening months of all 6 star wars films). i think it would be awesome if all of us did, indeed, continue the tradition. it's a very symbolic time and it can, potentially, be one of those "Celebration-like" events but for the Northeast region.

    enouguh blabberin'.

    1. Place. the first item we need to establish is someone's house. it needs to be pretty big to accomodate so many people. don't worry about equipment (although it'd be preferable to have HT there already). i prefer somewhere in MA because it's equidistant from ME, RI, VT, NH, CT, NY, etc. can someone volunteer their place? you know i would if i had the room, but i can barely fit myself.

    2. Time. i'm thinking the weekend of 5/20-21, 5/27 (memorial day weekend) or 6/3, etc. i prefer the memorial day weekend. to many of us, memorial day weekend is almost a star wars holiday. a time of reflection on many issues and memories past. i think people can genereally sustain only 3 episodes a day so, i-iii on saturday and iv-vi on sunday sounds better than all 6 in 1 day.

    3. Travel. since we're expecting a fellowship (har har) from many places, it's preferable to carpool together.

    if people don't respond by end of April, then forgetaboutit =(. let me know by posting a reply in this thread with a possible place, time and if you can attend&how many people.

    Sounds like a lot of fun! I actually held a 1-6 party at my house with some friends last Monday... Good time! I possibly might be able to make it... mostly depending on distance.

    ME is only a stone's throw away from MA =).

    I would love to do this but I am going away memorial day weekend. :(

    If it was another weekend in May I could do it.

    You might want to post this on the New Hampshire board too, Fonger. ;)

    I agree with DL, Memorial Weekend is probably not the best time to do this.

    Don't think I'd be able to attend as a 6-ish hour drive to MA while I'm 8 1/2 months pregnant just isn't a good idea :p. Actually, a drive of any distance probably won't be in my plans for that weekend. [face_laugh]

    Ahh, no. That does not sound like a good idea at all. Congrats on the impending arrival of the little padawan D_B! Do you know if you're having a "Luke" or a "Leia" or is that something you want to be a surprise? Has the doctor been able to give you an accurate Midichlorian count yet? ;)

    Thanks!
    We're saving the gender as a surprise like we did for our first baby. The midichlorian count too. [face_laugh]

    I wanted to say congrats as well to ya on the upcoming arrival of another padawan.

    I might be able to do this, but I think I will only do the OT movies and not the prequels. The prequels really didn't do it for me. Plus with my work schedule (2 jobs working 6 days a week) I will need to spend some time with the wife if not I won't have any lil wookiees running around any time soon. lol

    This sounds like a fantastic idea but, I can't do June 3rd. The eldest Padawan's dance show is that weekend and rehearsals begin just after Memorial Day.

    I would really like to see this happen though. What a great thought!
