    Just thought I would throw this out there. I know it is a good ways from now, but I was just curious if there is anyone from the area that might be going to Indianapolis, IN for the third Celebration convention. I went to C2 back in 2002 and had an ENORMOUS blast!

    I have tons of pictures if anyone wants to see what happens there.

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/FanForce_Celebration_III/b10611/]This forum[/link] provides a lot of background info on the goings-on during that time.

    When I lived in Nashville, TN a few years ago, our FanForce there had a caravan going of about 4 or 5 people. It was a lot fun. Maybe we can get something like that going around here. I know of at least one other, and he lives in the Northeastern part of the state.

    I live in Jacksonville, stationed at Little Rock AFB and planning on attending C3. I never knew we had a Fanforce around here :) where do you guys meet and when normally?

    Well, right now we have never met. :(

    We had a forum about a year ago, but it failed miserably due to inactivity. So, TFN deleted it. But now, it seems Arkansas is back with a vengeance! :D

    To become an official FanForce, we must have 3 sanctioned meetings (basically, letting everyone here know the time and place) with at least 3 people in attendance. Then, viola! We are an official FanForce with an official chapter representative. It's cool. I was a founding member of the Nashville FF in Tennessee when I lived there. Lots of good fun. ;)

    Well count me in! If folks can meet up in LR that'd be great! Right now since we have a major inspection fixing to happen on base I can't leave the local area. So if we can scrounge folks for a meeting in LR I'll sure be able to attend!! (try to make it on the weekend if at all possible)

    I went to Celebration II and had a blast. I went with my cousin and we haven't been talking lately so I'm wanting someone else to go with. I really don't want to go by myself. My friends are all too young or they aren't big enough fans to spend a $1,000 for a four day weekend. I'm in Alma, Arkansas. If anyone would be interested in going with me, let me know.

    I am going from Memphis and have a mini-van that is currently empty. I am looking for Memphis or AR people to carpool with me and save on gas.
    So excited about it. Can't believe it is still 5.5 months away.

    I'll be going to C3, although I already have means of transportation set up... but who knows... if you guys are flying maybe I'll see y'all at the airport...

    I unfortunately wasn't able to go to Celebration or C2 because of varying little problems, but this time I'm making sure that everything is clear and out of the way so that I can go. I've already got plans to meet up with a big group of people... I'm really excited...

    There will also probably be a huge FanForce party going on that weekend as well. During C2 there were probably 200-300 people there. Had a great time. I'd predict there will be anywhere from twice to five times as many at the party this go 'round.

    Are we so there again, Penzar? ;)

    Just thought I would revitalize this thread to see how many more people are attending this once-in-a-lifetime convention. Might be interesting to start a thread regarding "who is staying where and for how many days" thread. It could help us coordinate get-togethers within the chapter. We'll see.
