    Hey,

    I think we slacked off in March. Time for another meeting!

    How's Saturday, April 25th for everyone?

    Do we want to meet at Stag's Head? Or does someone want to volunteer their house for a Star Wars viewing? I'd volunteer if I had a decent TV.

    (And Chris, I realize I still owe you SW Revisited. Life has been crazy for me lately.)

    25th looks good for me.

    BTW I had a friend over who wanted to watch Holiday Special. He made it through the wookie part before he asked to turn it off.

    The wookiee part is deliciously awful.

    Mmmm. Interesting. I'll keep that in mind. [face_thinking]

    When I have house guests I can't get to leave, I'll throw on the Holiday Special to shoo them away. Of course, if they haven't left by the wookie part, probably nothing will get them to leave. [face_laugh]

    The Relay for life is that Friday and Saturday. If it is in the afternoon/ night I am good. Stag's head was nice. Good food and nice place to meet.

    I could do the 25th.

    I was thinking about going to San Antonio for a parade on the 25th for the Rebel Legion group there but I figured after the Relay on the 24th I might be too tired to make that long drive there and back.

    Great meeting guys. Erik, all I can say is .......AWESOME DUDE!!! And, I am bad with names, but I believe it was James who Ian and I were discussing the prequels with. I enjoyed the talk. That is the first sensible conversation I have ever had about the prequels. I like your opinions, they make a lot of since. Anyways, I think a Armor party is due.

    It was great seeing everyone! I'm looking forward to next meeting... perhaps we can make it out to George Observatory if there is a clear night and have James show us around the universe!

    It would also be fun to have a group outing for Star Trek... I'll post another thread!

    Yeah, last night was one of the best meetings we've had in a while.

    Glad you liked the disc, Chris. Did you watch the deleted scenes? There are easter eggs too!

    Hook us up James!!! And a Star Trek viewing would be coool.

    Erik I did watch the deleted scenes. Bye bye Jar Jar! I wish that scene was left in I liked it. I am a little rusty on Easter Eggs though. Any tips on how to view those? Great meeting guys, and the 501st is growing. I am with David, who's next?

    No problem.

    I don't have the revisited copy, I think John has a copy though so I might have to borrow his copy.

    Hey Danny, I thought you had a copy. I'll make you one. If anyone still doesn't have the DVD of Revisited, let me know. I can't keep track of who I gave it too.

    Chris, for the Revisited Easter Eggs, there are two:
    1) On the Special Features menu, to the right of "Deleted and Extended Scenes", highlight the trooper's helmet.
    2) On the Trailers menu, next to "Trailer 1", hit the LEFT button to highlight the wall panel on the RIGHT of the screen.
