    I haven't heard of any Star Wars conventions in Texas being scheduled. As you probably know, Peter Meyhew and a few others have stopped by Houston earlier this year. Billy Dee Williams is supposed to be at the next Sci-Fi Expo in Dallas on July 12-13, 2003.

    I know that Lone Star Shows is scheduled to have a local Houston area convention - most likely at the Holiday Inn on I-10 (a better location and much nicer hotel) on July 16-27, 2003. - Buck mentioned that one and is trying to get everyone suited up for it.

    Slanted Fedora made a posting on their website of a "tentative" Houston date of September 27, 2003. Don't know if they will come or not - we will have to wait and see. For some bizarre reason, comic and other fan conventions do better than those with big guests.

    Creation Entertainment has reduced their 2003 Texas appearances to only 2 shows: one a few months ago, and a June 14-15, 2003 "Sci-Fi Super-Sale" in Plano, Texas. This date was originally supposed to be the "Creation Star Trek/Media Event w/ Kate Mulgrew." But I guess with Kate Mulgrew doing mostly theater now - she is totally out of the market. Creation seems to have dropped the entire Mid, Mid-West for convention guest visits!

    There will be some smaller, regional conventions here in Texas in College Station, Richardson, and Plano scheduled for later this year. I can post info on the board if anyone is interested.
