    I can't believe the next meeting is already here!

    This is an important meeting, its the last one before CLONE WARS hits theaters, so we'll be deciding on our action plan for the event!

    Same place and time:
    Dog & Duck Pub
    17th and Guadalupe
    1pm - ??

    Lots to discuss as far as the CLONE WARS movie release goes; hopefully either Chris or myself will have spoken to theater management at Highland to set a date and time for us to do something there. Just gonna throw the following out there, so y'all can think it over, and post here before the meeting to see how far we can get for an outline for our event:
    Table(s), obviously
    Flyers I already have, might get more printed up if needed, have about 150 or so left I think
    I'd like to set up a small CLONE WARS display, with vehicles and action figures, but we'll see on that ;)

    For those interested, yes, I will lug the BMF down for everyone to drool at and be jealous of me , and we'll be talking about the great time we had in front of TRU Friday night! (inside was a different story for some)

    Hang on, we're about to make the jump to lightspeed! :cool:

    Right now it looks like it's still up in the air. Our theater contact person has been talking to the various managers here in town, and most don't seem interested in having an "event" for this movie. I think part of the problem is that this time around there's at least one other movie opening the same day and they don't want to discourage business from that.

    The San Marcos Star Wars Society has issued an invite that anyone from Austin could join them for a opening night event they're holding. If you're interested in that, just talk to Vader on our off-site boards (he's the head of the SM SWS).

    As far as AFF, it's looking more and more like we'll end up at most seeing Clone Wars as a group (those not stuck at work, that is) and then focus on Fan Boys which is coming out the middle of next month (a few days after Force Unleashed is released). I'd personally lean towards going to the Galaxy 10 (as it's a fully digital theater), but I don't think a final decision has been made as of this post. :)

    Yeah, I doubt they'll care if people come dressed up. I'm sure they're half-expecting it anyway. :p
