    That's exactly the costume I had in mind.

    And, Derek, you might wanna go home and re-think your life. 8-}

    I will now proceed to further debate the reasons I come to the JC to hang out with people dressed like that! :eek:

    It should be in San Diego, where Star Wars started at the San Diego International Comic Convention back in 1976! See the link in my signature for the online petition to get Star Wars Celebration III in San Diego.

    I agree, I bet it's Indy again.

    Ok, what was that big hotel that all the Stormtroopers stayed in, in Indy. The one we had the Friday night party in? Was it the Marriott? If so, I'm staying there. The Crowne Plaza was beautiful, but the rooms were a little small.

    It might have been the Mariott. I know the Hyatt was also right near the convention center.

    You better make your reservations now though, just in case. ;)

    I started saving $20 per week already...about a month ago. :D

    I plan on having roughly $3000 by the time this is on...and I could swear that I heard that it is already official...that CIII will be in Indy again.

    Well, I hear you, Darth, but I will be reserving a room wherever earlier than I did last year. It took me 6 months to get a room near the con center. I started calling in Nov of 2001. All booked. So I kept calling every other week. Booked 4 other rooms within drinving distance just in case. Finally in March, I found a room within walking distance to the center. Now I know better. I'm attending a con in Toronto next December. I already have reservations at the hotel. Made them 6 months ago. You just can't be toooo prepared when it comes to having fun!!

    tionne,

    Were you checking the rooms through Wizards? If not, that's why they were all booked up..Wizards had blocks of rooms reserved at a "discounted" rate for con attendees at a bunch of the hotels within a few blocks of the ICC.

    Hey, thanks for the updated RCA Dome info. I've bookmarked the site. They should have something up soon. But if it's scheduled there, does that mean it has to be there?

    Indy would be okay if there was more room to get around in the convention center. I found Sat. to be a real mess just trying to get past certain areas. The rooms for certain events were very restrictive in numbers and I did not get to hear or see what I wanted. I expect far more tahn the 30-60 thousand people this time. So I would suggest a bigger convention center in another city, such as Orlando, Atlanta sounds good and if they can handle Dargoncon they should be able to handle C3. Does anyone know where and who to contact about the site?

    Well, what I've heard, is that IF they go back to Indy, "whoever" will be coordianting the event will be renting more space at the RCA Dome. Let's hope so! I couldn't breathe on Saturday! Had to escape into the lounge every couple of hours! And there was no beer there! OHHHH, the horror!

    well...time is slowly dwindling down for C3.

    We are approximately 2 yrs and 1 1/2 months. That would be for the beginning of May of 2005.

    Man...still can't believe how long we have to wait.

    You said it. It would be nice if they actually had something in the lounge this time. Maybe the 501 could have a stand in there, for pop and water, make a little money for their charity.

    The new Washington DC Convention Center opens this weekend. I saw it on TV and it looks impressive. I'll see it in person next month when I attend the FOSE convention...

    I hope it is in Indy too.
    Indianapolis was ideal for the convention.
    I hope they will rent more space to accomidate everyone.
    Also great were the restaruants and the nightclubs were fun. And the locals were awesome. Met alot of nice people there.
    An underated place by my opinion. Very clean city. And after the convention there was alot to do in the city for visitors.
    Even if the Celebration III is not there I plan to go back to Indy when I can.
