    You mean to say Townsville actually had more than two seasons this year? My memories of the seasons up there are summer and Indian summmer. In other words, hot and hotter.

    But what a 'her' I am!! You guys sound a bit intimidated by this one little North Queensland chickie. I'm not that scary.

    And Cairns is way hotter. It's icky and sticky and humid. Ick.

    Hi,

    I live in Townsville and would love to be part of a local Star Wars fan club.

    Only just found this forum thats why I haven't responded before now. I surf to theforce.net daily but usually don't read the forums.

    Let me know if you want a chat.

    That's awesome, Rohan. I'll email you seperately as well, but 'hello' :) I want to get something a bit structured going next year, but for now we can chat. Lord of the Rings as well then, thats cool. Are you interested in costuming at all? I'd really like to pursue that, but haven't quite had the time. Next year I'll get into it properly.

    I knew this online recruitment thing would work. Who mentioned knocking on doors? Too much work, eh.

    Grieyls, I have nothing. I've been overwhelmed by your sheer, brutel confidence. I hope you can live with it.

    I'm coming to Brissy next week, so ya better look out. ;)

    But hey, I wouldn't know you from the preverbial bar of soap, so I figure your fairly safe.

    How is Brisbane's weather anyhow? I need to know what to pack. It's been damn hot up here, so I'm in summer mode already.

    If you don't break a sweat in Townsville, you'll probably need a jacket down here. ;) It's not that bad. A variety of lightweight clothing will get you by and throw in a jumper just in case. When the wind picks up here, it can get cold rather quickly.

    So say some, personally I think it's getting too warm of late.

    EDIT: By the way if you happen to be here on the 28th you can hang with another bunch of geeks having a BBQ on that day. If you are interested PM me and I'll will get you the details.

    Hey Rebecca,
    I'd definately like to meet up sometime. Maybe over the end of year holidays?? I live just outside of Townsville off the western highway on the way out to the Towers, so it's (kinda) on the way :)

    It would be soooo good to know another girl who's into Star Wars, especially to chat with in the flesh.

    Email or PM me anytime!

    If you read the first post, you'll notice that I invited all the bloody NQers to come out off the woodwork.

    Ha Ha. We're gonna take over :)

    Might want to get them to have a bath before they come in. I only got this place clean from the last scuffle and do not want blood every where again. ;)

    I'm so sad :(

    I can't come to the bbq and I could really use a sugar hit ;)

    How sucky. Next time I'm down we must have another meet.

    So what did you guys do? I spent the whole day stuck with family, telling them about my life and pretending to be interested in theirs. And I kept saying, wherever I was, "where is Morningside from here? Is it far?".

    Did you dress up? :) I wanna have a dress up thing when I'm down next!
