    Hey, now that i am finding time to respond to all of this I can say I'll be able to make it Saturday as well, Plus 1 cause I will try to get my friend Eric to some with me as well if i can. Donno what dish I can bring yet but i'll keep you posted as soon as i figure out what it is and figure out what clever name I can give it.

    On another note I am the KING of SW themed board Games... like seriosly.. i have them all... more importantly I have Oridinal Trilogy trivial pursuit and DVD Saga Edition TP as well. Plus anything else you can think of (Rick, Stratigo, Talking SW Battle Ships, about 3 or 4 different kinds of monopoly, ect) most of those games are to slow for a cookout but i figured the trivial pursuit would be pretty entertaining.. just let me know if thats cool (someone may have already said something about it I didn't read this entire thread)

    And we have a prize to donate for the games.

    I'm thinking Danny & I will be finished with the Clone Wars troop and be back down in the area by 2pm. So I can drop him off and hangout for a bit before I have to scoot to a family related BDay party. Unfortunately, we wont have any food to bring but I would like to mooch a drink off somebody!

    I am hosting our first annual "Star Wars Scene-it in Clay", which will be explained at the party. But just to get your creative juices flowing...it will be teams of 2 that will have to take a given item and will have to sculpt a given timeframe accurately in clay. And the items will span all 6 movies.

    Jason said he would provide SW Trivial Pursuit

    as for prizes, I have a few of them and John Mayes said he was going to bring something. But if you would like to donate to the prize pool, by all means bring it on.

    I'll be bringing SouthWest Dantooine Dip (dont worry, it only taste like womprat) and a tray of assorted Veggies.

    My wife and kids wont be able to make it so im bringing a good friend of mine who, like me, didn't know there was a Richmond Star Wars community till just now and is looking forward to being a part of the gang.


    EDIT: My buddy Mike just called and he also can't make it, so it will just be me. [face_devil]

    That was a lot of fun.

    The clay sculpting was quite hilarious. It just goes to show that many of us work better with ABS than we do with clay. I still can't believe that Jean and I didn't win with our rendition of the "Lilo & Stich - Crumb".

    Thanks for letting us in to your home Joel, and it was great to see everyone.
    I hope to see you all (and more of you too) at the Clone Wars movie release!

    Definetly a good time! Thanks for hosting, Joel! Can't wait until next year's cookout (whoever is hosting).

    The Scene it in Clay was a great idea. Loved Danny and Prescott's space slug! [face_laugh]
