    I am definately going this year, I just have to figure out when. Knowing who/when is going from the fanforces will probably sway the decision though.

    Since I'm a traitor though, I will have to take into account when the Star Trek actors will be there. :D

    Again with the Star Trek! :mad:

    I'd really like to go but I think I'll be in Vegas that weekend. It figures, I never go anywhere and now the one time I leave town there's something going on! I might be able to make it to one of the days if we have a whole crew going. Just my luck.

    P.S. Didn't Silas Carson play Ki Adi Mundi in Episode 2 as well?

    If he didn't, whoever did was darn good at imitating him!

    Edit: I know, I know, again with the Star Trek. Sorry. :(

    My Two Towers count is up to 3!

    You two! :~D

    I believe we talked about the fact that the Grand Slam was happening, but didn't get anywhere as far as discussing going. I'll bring the info again at Saturday's meeting.

    Saturday sounds good to me...a lot of the people I want to see will be there then (I want to see Boba Fett too, but he's the only one on Sunday that interests me, so, eh). Guess we'll find out Saturday!
