    Hey guys! I just wanted to fill everyone in on the beginning of collaboration efforts for Super Megafest this year.

    We're off to a late start, but we do have our table situation figured out. Payment will be sent to the promoters today - $100 for a table on both days, including 6 weekend passes. The table is open to ALL FanForce groups regardless of whether or not you can contribute to the table cost. There are plenty of other ways to contribute (help with our charity fundraiser, staffing the table, etc.) that will come up in discussion soon. But first we need to get the table cost covered.

    Please visit and post in the Boston thread on this if you can help out:

    Thanks in advance, and I hope to see you guys there. :)

    I should be there on Sat. I have made plans to attend the musuem for the SW exhibit on Friday night. So my brother and I will have the day free to go. I just need to know if we are going to do anything. I will probably be spliting my time between the area Fan Force boards and another group that is going to be there.

    This looks to be a pretty good con as far as guests go. I am looking forward to going. I just have to talk to my brother to make sure he wants to go. If not I may have to miss out. I wouldn't want to make him suffer alone with my wife and my mother. He had to do that for a week up in Maine. I don't think the poor kid will ever be the same after that week. lol

    "I'm with you too" :p

    It looks like I'll be there Saturday only though. If I'm able to attend sans child, I'll even offer up my time for an hour or so to sit at the table and let some people stretch their legs a bit.

    I posted this on Foxboro and would like other chapters' opinions and input on a flyer for the convention.

    Here is what I started with:

    I started writing this on my ride up to Maine this past weekend.
    I thought it might be good to put a flyer to learn about fanforce.

    What is Fan Force?

    Well it is a gathering of STAR WARS fans of course, but we are not only just about Star Wars.

    We meet about once a month a go out for group outing.
    Sometimes it is a movie, a picnic , a cookout, trips to amusement parks, special events like conventions, such as the one you are at right now.

    And many other fun and entertaining places.

    Many of us all went to Celebration III which was the official STAR WARS convention this past April in Indianapolis.

    What is most important about Fan Force I believe is the friendships that are forged along the way.

    We communicate on TheForce.Net forum boards.
    These are message boards to which we use to discuss and keep in contact with one another about a multitude of subjects.
    There are forums about movies, sports, politics, music, collectibles , costuming, books, video games, art, comic books, fan made films, fan fiction writing, conventions, television, radio, and much much more.

    The use of these message boards is at no cost to you just register, agree to the rules as a user and then your off to a local, regional, national, and worldwide universe of people, places, and new friendships.

    We welcome you to post on the message boards and to join anyone of our local Fan Forces.


    If you think anything needs to be added or omitted please post.

    Thanks

    I'm going to try and make it, but can't say for sure since I'm just getting back into the FF swing and found out today! But I'd love to see Richard Kiel!
    Just an fyi for an Creature fans: Ricou only played the Creature in underwater scenes ;) Ben Chapman played
    him (it?) on land.
