    As I stated in another fourm, this looks like a great little event that could be a great road trip. How far is Knoxville from you guys?

    mapquest is wrong,

    i live in gallatin,tn .it takes me 45minutes or less to get to bowling green.
    i take 109 south to I40 east.
    it takes me about 25 minutes to get down there.

    from there to knoxville takes me 2hours and 10 minutes driving 65-70.then the con is located at a convention center about 10 minutes north of town.

    so 45 minutes down to gallatin
    25 minutes down to I40
    130 minutes over to knoxville
    10 minutes over to con

    thats about 3.5 hours total and its not that bad a drive.

    I went last year and its pretty good.they have lots of tables and stuff to buy.then they have all the actors if you like that stuff.
    I was the only 501st member there in costume last year.i walked around for a little while and got lots of pics taken.this year we will have a table and probably nearly a dozen troopers!we should have vader,troopers,royal guard,mara jade,snowtroopers,possibly jango fett.lots of fun.and we should really add alot to the con this year.

    if you guys need any info on that con be sure to check out the site and email me if you need anything.
