    Yes, you have to buy a ticket to go to the concert. It costs 12$. They will sell half the tickets on friday and the other half on saturday. I fear they will disappear very quickly!
    But I plan to go!

    What and when is the opening ceremony?

    Opening ceremony seems to be at 6pm on Friday, and I guess is gonna have Anthony Daniels and big guests talking about stuff.

    I don't know much on details.

    Any idea where everyone will be headed, in case we don't make it in in time?

    I think we didn't plan more than visiting the convention center for now. After I don't know.... But it wouldn't be too difficult to swing by the hotel again later for people who can't meet at 7:30, I guess. ;)
    So, a bunch of you are coming by car from Toronto?

    I will probably bring my cell phone but I have no idea how much calls would cost there!


    :D 7 DAYS!!! :D

    There's about 9 of us from T.O. coming in together via car caravan.

    If you gave one of us your number, we could call just to say - hey we're in, where are ya?

    your call (heheh..was the pun intended? was it a pun? I can't decided.)

    New to the forum, but not to the Star Wars universe! I am from Saskatchewan and am bringing my family down to enjoy the event. Sounds like fun for all of us Canadians to have a strong presence for the dark and often misunderstood chosen one. Arrive at 5:12 local time. CYA!!

    "I'm right with you Red Two". That is to say barring any delays, I wouldn't miss it for all the Bantha fodder on Tatooine. Wait a sec...that doesn't sound too good.

    Hey everyone, ya currently there is no plan other than to meet up at the afore mention local, do some introductions and get as much info on the facility as we can that night. Anything to give us an advantage the next morning and for the entire event. After that, we can then possibly make some additional plans.

    Denizen, 5:12pm in Indy, sounds like you'll be flying in from Toronto with Air Canada, same as me : )

    That is cool, maybe we can share a cab to the hotels. The dollar, er, Loonie is sure taking a pounding. Anything that anybody can think of to save us Canadians from spending too much would help, like carpooling for those with cars there.
    May the Loonie be with you!

    So we're settled for 9:30 West Inn Lobby.

    I can live with that. Maybe we should post it up on FanForce Mani Page hey Chris ;)

    Hey pal... 7:30! At the Westin. ;)

    Don't get mixed up!

    And when the bunch from Toronto gets there they can call me on my cell phone (I'll send it to Adam as soon as I check the rates with Bell) or they can call you. I guess they have your number, right?
    Unless you planned to wait for them to get your room... :confused:


    Edit: How many days? :eek:
    :D 4 DAYS! :D

    Getting excited there, aren't ya? Who can blame ya?

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...4 days...4 days...4 days....weeeeeeeeeeee!!!

    This is going to be awesome!!

    I'm guessing there will be message boards somewhere in the con, but maybe we should have a logo of sorts on our papers, for the boards, to make it easier to see where we'll be meeting.

    I'll work out a quick design, if someone gets something up sooner, we can decide quickly on what to use -- or use any of them. If we print off enough for the weekend, we can all check the boards and find each other pretty easily.

    Thoughts?

    Ya those of us in the Toronto group will be there around 9-9:30ish.

    We want to get settled in our rooms and relax for a few minutes after the long drive.

    We'll get there.

    That sucks!! Hopefully, it won't pan out that way!! Would be a great shame if you missed it!

    Hope you can make it!

    As for the post it board -- instead of printing stuff up, how about we just draw a Canada Flag with "Fanforce Canada" written somewhere on the note, to help spot it.

    I'm not Canadian, but I'll be wearing the nametag that Mr.Skinnee put up on the CII boards. :)

    I was wondering though... does anybody know if JediWarrior still plans on attending? I know last fall he definately sounded like he was...

    I believe TheGrandePoobah bumped into him in Ottawa, and he said that he'd be at Celebration.
