    Winnipegger here. Fan Club? There was one store in Winnipeg that had the most Star Wars memoribilia I have ever seen. They are closed now because the fan base in Winnipeg isn't that great. I am a devout Star Wars fan. Having a club that puts us true fans in the same breathe as Trekkies and the like wouldn't do the followers justice...But, that's just me.

    Heck, I still have my twin size sheets from 1977 in storage. Diecast Landspeeder, and many other keepsakes from the best part of my childhood. I wouldn't classify myself as a collector. More of an searcher.

    This is my first time using this forum. I plan on using MSN chat to start a Winnipeg Based Chat Room...When I get my butt in gear, I will post the room.

    May the Force be with you!

    Are you talking about Hollywood Toy & Poster? Actually, Les didn't really close up because of lack of sales - he's now working with Steve Sansweet.

    Actually, Les never closed, he became partners with the guys from Galaxy Comics on Henderson Highway. In fact, he is back in Winnipeg. If you go to the upstairs part of Galaxy, you can find him there. That is where most of the Star Wars stuff is.

    Good to know! I'll check it out on my way home!

    I have created a room on MSN for such chat topics in the Entertainment section:

    http://chat.msn.ca/chatroom.msnw?rhx=25235468655C62466F7263652E6E657427735C62636F6D6D656E745C62726F6F6D&rhx1=%2554%2568%2565%2520%2546%256F%2572%2563%2565%252E%256E%2565%2574%2527%2573%2520%2563%256F%256D%256D%2565%256E%2574%2520%2572%256F%256F%256D

    The Force.net's comment room

    If I have to clear the room, will someone just recreate it...let's get a real AOTC chat going on. There was only three of us today, an hour after creating and posting in here. Spread the word.

    There's a good chance of me moving to Winnipeg this summer. You should start a FF chapter! You have enough people. I'll join, if and when I get there.

    I happen to be a fellow Winnipeger and MSWG member who has luckily stumbled onto this forum at the right time, and welcome anybody else in the city to come down to the All Your Base Cafe on the corner of Pembina Hwy and Crane; above the Cock and Mussel pub.

    We meet every Monday evening between 4pm and 2am, to play SW D6 RPG, play X-BOX, and just hangout...

    The Manitoba Star Wars Guild is getting stuff organized right now for Episode II, but the theatres don't know what's happening yet much either; I'm still wondering why the release date for AOTC is THURSDAY May 16th. Not Wednesday of Friday?!

    Also our website will be up soon @ www.mswg.net

    Tell us more about the Manitoba Star Wars Guild.

    How many members do you have? How often do you meet?

    *sigh*
    What a day...

    Hi! I'm Ofortuna, President of the Manitoba Star Wars Guild. We're Manitoba's Star Wars Connetion, and certainly one of the Larger Star Wars Clubs in Canada; We have 260+ Members internationally, and 60+ local (I'm still pushing on the local end of things here...). The earliest beginings of the MSWG can be traced back to June of 1982. It wasn't unitll 1998 / 1999 that we started to push for public membership. We hold at least one event per month, and are always looking for new members or ambassadores (i.e; those members out of province or city), so if anyone wants, drop us a line; hope to hear form you soon! Write me for more information at ofortuna@shaw.ca -- Thanks Agent Utah, for the post!

    I am Russell Loewen, a 'pegger too. Looking forward to the ticket line but dreading the weather I feel will surround it. At least the temperature wasn't that bad last time.
