    Hey all, I am wanting to start a Star Wars fan group in Townsville so I have likeminded people to socialise with. Are there any other Townsvillians out there or do you know of any who may be interested? It's great to find some in the state at least.

    Hello CatThrawn. I do not know of any Townsville based fans-we are coalesced.
    around Brisbane ,for the majority.

    But welcome to the boards anyway and my name is Paul :).

    I'm not a laddy! I'm a Star Wars chick! Watch out JP, I've seen what you've said about us :)

    I'm actually in Brisbane for a few days late Septmeber. But if I move anywhere it would be Sydney. Got way too much family in Brisbane. I do have a friend at UQ though, studying Law. I'm a tourism student full time and astronomy student part time.

    But I'm definately female Grieyls ;)

    Gorgeous. We are having an observation night on Wednesday to celebrate. I live a bit out of town though and the sky is perfectly dark every night. I'm lucky and got some cool photos of Mars with the moon recently.

    If you can get to a big telescope you should. I can find one for you if you like. My friend is into astronomy and is living down there now.

    Hey BBN1138,
    Did you ask Rick McCallum a question on the hyperspace forum? Is that why I recognise your name and why he thinks you're deranged ?[face_plain]

    And since you are from up this way, is there anybody you know here who is into SW?

    I'm just going to campaign at uni. That's how I got the astronomy club up and running.

    I'm not a laddy!

    I'm sure that the double 'd' was just a typo and he meant "lady." (There, I got you off the hook, Griels :p)

    Hey BBN1138,
    Did you ask Rick McCallum a question on the hyperspace forum? Is that why I recognise your name and why he thinks you're deranged


    Ha, no. I've been asked this question many times. It's a reference to a quote Rick made in some newspaper or something a while back, talking about Star Wars fans in general, how they can get really into the whole thing. He said something along the lines of "these people are totally deranged!" So I wear it as a badge of pride. ;)

    And since you are from up this way, is there anybody you know here who is into SW?

    Hmmm, one or two, maybe. Not seriously into it, but casual fans.

    Clever use of the alphabet there dude!

    Casual fan ?[face_plain] What's that? I don't want them thanks. Diehards only not tryhards. Without being complete space cadets though eh.

    I love Rick babe. He's a cool dude with cool hair and a hell of a way with words. Almost as blunt as me [face_devil]

    Good stuff mate! I assume your not here now though. I thought a few Townsvillians might be lurking around here but your all expats.

    If it makes you feel even worse, I'm ex-pat Townsville as well. [face_mischief]

    But you're smart.....
    I must be. I'm one of the ninety seven.

    I lived in Townsville for eight years ... I still go to therapy for the trauma! ;)

    I'd welcome you, but it's been so long since I've wandered into the QLD FF, I don't feel that I have that right anymore.

    But hey, anyways. :D

    I think the closest FFer you'll find to you is Dewback Stew ... think he's from Rocky. Or did he actually end up moving down here?

    Sorry guys, I haven't been around lately and missed all your kind words about my home :) It's boring, I'll give you that. It's pretty nice though and we've had maybe two days of winter this year.

    Hey Ewok dude. You sound like a bit of a Wraith Squadron fan. I'm reading it now, for about the 5th time. I love it to pieces. If you start up the real thing (fan club wise), I want in.

    Maybe I'll have better luck recruiting up here on a door to door basis than here on the net!
