    Jedi_Narf___presents a valid concern:)

    and so, with some apologies for me being a wacky-geeky-nerdy-old type of STAR WARS fan,

    I offer this information, based on

    1.) my memory (be afraid, be very afraid[face_laugh]

    2.) much google searching (for IU/Little 500 info)

    3.) Endless researching and trusting the posts on these HA Boards.

    AND THUS,


    April 20, 2005 An HA meeting held on a Wednesday night,
    I and others missed this due to our lives revolving around C3
    NOTE: my first HA meeting was 5-13-05, I think:)

    then

    April 22, 2006 HA meeting (and mens Little 500)

    April 21, 2007 HA meeting (and mens Little 500), I was pretty sick at this one.

    Unless, I miss my guess, traffic and parties in and around the area are a concern,
    but I do not remember them causing us much of a problem in parking or eating,
    tho
    I have not been to the new location.

    And I meant no true insult; if I meant a true insult I wouldn't have used a quote from Ultraviolet. :) I am concerned, though, about how busy downtown will be that weekend.

    Yeah, the problem I think will be that the new location is smack in the middle of downtown, whereas Avalon was well on east side. Plus, if I'm not thinking wrong, but wasn't that lovely incident we had last year at Bucceto's (with those jerks and their spitballs and stuff) on Little 500 weekend?

    Well, This post is comming to you from the main IU library:)

    and so, I have had a little more time on the internet today,
    as it is not costing me money like yesterday.


    But, yesterday was cool, I did my internet-ing from FedEx-Kinkos,
    and got a chance to chat with Mike (sorry, that is all I know, can not even find his board name)

    and he let me know more about the HA COG, and how he had it so it used the seal of the
    City of Bloomington, IN.
    which I did not know, I just thought it looked cool.

    ok, have to run off to other boards and bother (warn) them of my impending visits.....

    Hey Ed! John and I are working in the first floor of the west tower right now. We tried looking for you but we couldn't find you anywhere. If you're still in the library, come say hi!

    This I did not know, and I missed this post.

    Basically, I walk into campus from a public parking spot,
    and then only have about 1-hour of time where I frantically try to visit many many boards,
    and check my email:)

    It might be too late this trip, but let me know where you might be and I will try to visit.

    Currently, I am in the Law Library, as for some reason the Library by the Union (In the IDS building)
    is MAC only, and that is where I usually go.

    -------------------------------

    In other news,

    The INDY KNIGHTS, were foolish enough to email me some times and places of their activities,
    and I took them up on their offer and drove up to INDY last night and visited with them.
    Got a T-Shirt and some stickers, and got to play a tutorial game of STAR WARS mini-s

    oh, and got to meet a lot of great Star Wars fans, just like here and everywhere else I go.

    more on the Troy Denning / book signing thread.

    you all know that it is because I am in Hoosier Alliance territory,
    that I have more than the usual to post in
    Whaddaya up to:)


    Well, me and Deep Blue Jedi (John),

    managed to stalk each other down yesterday[face_laugh]

    and given the almost snowy like conditions today,
    and no other pm-s, it seems dim that I will see others
    before I leave early tomorrow.

    But, I shall return in MAY, so stay alert and be on the lookout:D

    well, that's it for now,

    Ed


    oh wait, I went to the Little 500 yesterday, and some guy named Obama?
    showed up.

    you guys got everything here in Indiana, guess I come back[face_whistling]

    That's ok, just keep giving your younglins Jedi training so they do not really give you a lot of Sith-lord stuff
    later in life

    anyway, I am currently down in Evansville,
    doing my best to make various lifeforms wonder about me[face_laugh]

    More news about my trip,

    In addition to meeting a little with 2 HA members,
    I also was in Evansville and attended an E'ville Jedi meeting,
    and had an opportunity to meet even more great Star Wars fans,
    just like you guys:)

    also, was in INDY, and also met with some of my buddies in
    South Bend.

    Truely, you guys are NOT the farthest point from the
    bright shinny center of the Galaxy:)

    ___NEXT VISIT TO BLOOMINGTON



    sorry to say, it will be a little shorter than I had hoped for.

    June 15 to June 20, perhaps, if I am lucky, the after 8-pm
    part of the evening on June 14, depending on the drive down
    and what time my Chicago June 14 commitments end.

    as usual, my wish is just to be there always.

    More when I know more.

    I am quoting myself, as some at the most recent HA meeting,
    wondered if I was driving back to Chicago, the same night as the meeting.

    well, maybe in the old days, but in the new days, I fear that I am not
    strong with the force,as I use to be:)

    and so,

    I will take advantage of my__________WHaddaya up to______thread,
    (which I like to think of as a STAR WARS blog-thread, open to all)
    to post some non Star Wars Stuff.


    I am visiting Bloomington, IN. until Friday Morning, which is when I drive back to Chicago.

    I will be attending a week of activities a IU, called Mini University.

    If I come accrose anything fun,I will post it here.

    Starting, with, my access to these boards, is only when I get time to visit
    the IU Library, but, I will try to do this at least twice a day.

    also, to any and all (even randon visitors!),
    please feel free to let us know what you are up to,
    no matter how silly_________in fact_______the sillier the better[face_laugh]

    well, next saturday the 13-th, a couple of parents have asked me
    to talk to their children about Star Wars:eek:


    So, I have been having fun gathering up stuff for a
    Star Wars only ___show and tell


    while double checking with the parents with________are you sure:D



    cause the parents are not big SW fans and think this would be fun for their kids.


    during my prep for this I found out I had 2 more helmets (and a kit) more than I
    thought I had[face_laugh]
