    Hi! Leash and I are planning on being there when the doors open, which I believe will be at 9. I don't know the area at all, but I am willing to meet you where ever. If you want I can call you when we do get there, and we can find each other. I figure this place won't be all that big. LOL

    The Carbondale FF members are wanting to meet up too, and I need to get a hold of the Paducah group as well. Haven't heard back from them yet...

    Let me know if that works! I am looking forward to seeing you guys again. :D

    The hospital thing would be fun, but Brandon has to work an opening shift (translation: he has to get up at 3:30 am) on Friday, so I think if we tried to fit that in, he would be a complete zombie in Cape. Looks like we'll see you Saturday morning. Keep us up to date with any goings on for Sat. night...

    Oh yeah, my Visas Marr is done, did I tell you that?

    OMG! I just realized they'll be having a SW:CCG tournament!

    I haven't played that game in 5 years! I'm so going to have to put a deck back together...

    It was a total pleasure to meet you folks and I have to say, I haven't laughed and had that much fun with fans since C-III.

    The SIJO group and I look forward to getting together with Christina and the rest of your gang again soon. The 70th was terrific and our barbeque hosts were truly gracious.

    I have to say that the next time I see pretzels on an airliner, I am going to bust out laughing and wonder aloud if they really do taste like.... well, let me just say that the logic behind that statement requires one to ask a question that the recipient IS NOT going to want to answer.

    I have a new slogan for the rest of the year thanks to our Vader Pal.

    One that will undoubtedly get me slapped by my wife every time I say it.

    But it's just absolutely too funny now to let go.


    And yes - the time stamp on this post is accurate. I just walked in the door about 20 minutes before the posting.

    Well worth the lack of sleep. 'Til next time we meet and make the circle complete.

    I am so sorry I missed this, sounds like you all had fun. I had some family drama going on, I won't bore you with the details. LOL!

    Sounds like the fun was had before I got there. Shame the only thing that really interested me was the SW:CCG gaming.

    I was surprised that I managed to win a game after not having paid any attention to how the game's developed in 5 years. It felt great to play again.

    Yeah Jon, you got there at the tail end of the end of our day. We had been running around since 9 and I think we were all hot, tired and ready to relax by then.

    I am glad you won though! That is awesome. There was some big action with the Mini's earlier in the day. Lots of people playing that.



    And thanks LordINVAR for not finishing that sentence. LOL

    The schedule needs to have stuff on it that I'd actually go to. If there was other stuff going on, then someone should have told me and I'd have arrived sooner.

    My lady friend was quite excited about the stormtroopers though.

    I didn't have access to a schedule till I got there. I didn't even know about the game you attended was happening till you told me. I wish their site had been better. That would be a good thing to mention to Ken... and I will. :D

    And I guess, my main thing was going to meet everyone else. Wasn't to worried about what was planned. Heck, I didn't even go around check out the dealers... which made my husband a very happy man. :p

    I walked around and looked at the dealers. It was all pretty much comic stuff. There was one table with some ancient Star Wars toys at the typical inflated prices.

    About the only thing that interested me was a game at one dealer with an amusing title: "Monkies in Space" or something like that.
