    I think it would be a good idea if TF.N/JC could organize a little meeting for all of the JCers who plan on attending Celebration III in Indy next April. What better a time and place to put a face with all of those infamous users we have come to love over the years? Even though TF.N and the JCC exist as seperate entities, I'm sure a collaberative effort could be made on each behalf to make this a reality. I'm sure this has been done at the previous two Celebrations but on more of an unofficial basis. Thoughts?

    Isn't the TFN booth the gathering place?

    Oh how I would like to meet some of the mods in real life, I have a feeling they would be much more humble.

    I would also like a shot at arm wrestling Sarlacc, the rumour is he's almost unbeatable.

    I think it would be cool. There's already going to be another fan force party, but a JC/TFN party would be awesome too.

    I might see if I can get some time off work and get a road trip going. It'll take some convincing with the wife as well. What else is there to do in Indy in April? I've never been.

    Gotta say...given the hormones flying around this messageboard, and the geeky 'only chance to meet someone of the opposite sex' deal, there's a damned good chance of some freaky geek kids being conceived in Indiana next year.

    Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    At least you're thousands of miles away.

    I'm about 40 miles from Indy. And a lot of people from Indy move here from time to time. And I go to Indy a lot.

    And its already pretty bad here.

    I'm very scared.

    I should be working in the US by that time...and will more than likely be at C3.

    Shunning the freaks though.

    I guess that means I'll be pretty lonely there.

    It doesn't count when they shun you, Dagsy.

    I bet a lot of people will go and try to pass off as other people.

    "Yes, I'm Dagsy, and I'm looking for nice men."

    Stuff like that. Probably permbanned members would impersonate who banned them.

    :p

    When everyone goes they will all want autographs and pics with Dagsy because he is so cool. Then they can have arm wrestling with Sarlacc and of course "Stare at my hat" For Sapient. And all the other mods will be flirted with and or congratulated on their jobs.

    Seriously I have met two RSAs in rl and needless to say your job is quite hard.

    As previously mentioned, the Indy Knights are already planning a party with the 501st as a co-sponsor to rival the one we threw at C2 (I imagine FF & Rebel Legion will hop on board as well)...don't have the details as of yet, but it will probably be on Friday night back in the Hyatt. You don't have to be a member of any of the groups to come, just get a ticket.

    Besides that party, probably met more online people up in the fan club booth room than anywhere else.

    good chance of some freaky geek kids being conceived in Indiana next year.
    That's hilarious...not a pretty mental image...but hilarious!

    Maybe they should invite "The Fab 5" have one of the conference rooms dedicated to Queer Eye for the Star Wars guy ;) It'll be great...jedi "zooshing" their robes...stormtroopers adding a little color to thier armor...it'll be great!

    I know a bunch of FF chapters that are planning on going, so the FF party should be awesome.

    As for those who would enjoy the chance to "run into a mod"...I've had one permabanned (sock-creating) dumb ### actually sent me (and his former CR) PMs and e-mails about how he wanted to meet us there. Um...no, stay the frell away from me stalker-boy! I told him, if he even approaches me (or the CR) at CIII...he'll be escorted out by Indy's finest (in handcuffs) and I'm not talking 501st!

    I'm putting money on the bouncers at Indy's nightclubs being really tired of the line "you don't need to see my identification" by the time C3 is over...

    Getting passed around for half a pack of cigarettes while spending the night in the Marion County lockup over some stupid board drama is a good way to find out how well you bleed while the guards finish up watching Wheel of Fortune.

    I got some "threats" pre-C2...I replied back by laughing in their faces, then I asked them if I was supposed to meet them on the playground after school. Tools. That said, even people I've butted heads with here are a whole lot nicer in person...the difference between typing and talking I suppose.

    For those that didn't attend the IK/FF/501st/RL party at C2, we had about 1/3-1/2 of a ballroom where dinner (pizza & soft drinks) was served, there was a SW Fan internet radio show broadcasted live (the name is escaping me), and we had a few of the SW celebrities come to hang out with everyone (ie not sign anything)...I only remember Peter Mayhew being there, because he's Peter Mayhew, but I know there were a couple other actors there as well. Had to go across the lobby to the bar to get adult beverages, but overall it was probably my favorite time over the entire weekend. I suspect we'll be getting a larger room this time around, a dj for some tunes, and a cash bar in the room to help keep everyone together. Details will be posted once we nail a few more things down.

    A gathering would definately be cool. I'll be making plans to meet the people that I'm already friends with, but a general gathering would be way fun also.

    We're going to Disneyland!

    Well, being in CA, I'm not sure of the possibility of being there this year. Although the thought of hanging out with Carmie is mighty tempting...

    Sebulba-X, I was at the C2 party with my husband and we think a dj spinning some tunes is a great idea for the next one. :D

    Why couldn't they hold it in Atlanta or something like that? Why do the Floridians get screwed over all the time. No book tours, no authors, no big parties, no nothing. At least I could drive to Atlanta, but nope, it's gotta be in the midwest.

    So I won't be there. :(

    I'm going to wear my yellow jacket and black pants, and tell people I'm DarthSapient when I get to the TFN booth.

    "Hey you, with the acne, get me a drink, or never post on TFN again!"
