    Ok guys and gals, it's been officially announced! Celebration 5 will be Orlando 2010 from Aug 12-15. I think arrangements for a place to stay are being taken care of by TK. I jumped on Jet Blue's web site and flights for that time from Boston to Orlando are $89 round trip!

    Tickets are $120 for the weekend and there will be an upgrade option at some point.

    Let's start planning so we can all go!! :D

    Well...

    This seems as good a place as any to make my first post in well.... FOREVER!! lol

    Put I'm glad to say I'm back! The holiday retail season is now over for me. No more 6 day's and countless hours! And as a BONUS you can see I now have internet again! YEAH ME!!

    All the hard work over the holidays has paid of, so to say. I know I have talked to most everyone though out the season. But I do hope everyone had a safe and wonderful X-Mas. or whatever it is you celebrat. lol :) My was good, depite all the work. : )

    So with that said.... where to begin? Everyone know C5 is a comin'... YEah C5!! So i think that is the biggest new out there right now. That and howto get everyone there. Let me start off by saying I picked up my tickets for the event this evening!! That's right tickets are ordered. I will hopefully find out from Ann anytime now if Offical Pic's is doing the show. And they should be... after that. I'm all set. So to say.

    I'm still working out places to stay. I have half a dozen opption open right now myself from staying with a couple of you guy's to staying with family and friends. ou have to remember that's were I'm from. Growing up and all, school. Stuff like that. Plus now being on line for the first time in a while. It looks like a have a couple guy's in the 501st. looking for roommate. So that may work as well.

    I would as that if anyone out there is looking to go... and would liketo try to make that together to let me know ASAP!! LIKE NOW!! I will personally have figured out where I"m staying by the end of the month. Thatbeing Jan. I will have a deposit in to where ever i going by than. And I NEED a 150% commetment (sp?) from anyone that thinka they are going. I will be keeping in mind they everyone out there will be looking to go as cheap as possible. I will be doing the same to a point.

    Please keep that in mind as well as the time I am going for maybe longer than some of you are going for or can go for. I will be leaving on Aug. 10th. which is that wed. and not returning till I think Aug 18th. or 19th. which is the following wed./Thurs. Just so you all know my plains. So which this being my first vacation sense ..I think the last celebration. I will be looking to have a good time and stay a little longer as well as maybe staying in a NICER hotel for the week or so I'm going.

    Over the next few weeks I'll let everyone know what I am thinking of doing and where I maybe staying? As well as some cost $$$ so you can plan a little better what it is you may wish to do. I would hope that everyone out there could find a way to go!! I have been to all four so far and have to plans on missing number 5 . Even if I have to walk there. lol... no really even if I have to walk!

    I all so have plans on tring to get my plane ticket by months end as well. When i know I will let you all know. I think it would be cool maybe if some of us could fly together. It would be much easier when you get down there. I know it may seem like I'm doing this kinda fast. But I wish to get it DONE NOW!! So I have nothing else to do but save $$$ for the week. Plus doing it now get me the room I want , the best prices on flight and stuff like that.

    So again... As I figure it out I'll let you know. But I would need answer and down payments on your rooms and stuff like that . like I said hopfully by months end. I not pushing anyone out there by any means. But... I do not wish to wait till the last minute like I did at C4. Shot... then I did not even have the room paid for till the second day we were there. So this time around I will have it all set months before. I sorry if this sounds like I'm pushing it...

    But it will give me the time I need to figure out roommates... places to stay and the money I'll need myself. So people... PLEASE set down over the next week or two. Talk to the wife, the boyfriend, the lover! In some case mom and dad... whom ever! and start counting the dollars. Youe have 30 day's on feb 1st. if not sooner I will have myself DONE!! I only say soon just in case something GREAT Jumps up and

    Well they FINALLY have a new update on C5. It's official... Well official Pic that is... lol

    Story below. It's getting closer... It's starting to make me warm and fuzzie in side. lol

    SeeYa,
    TK


    Welcome back to the Homing Beacon, the official Star Wars email Newsletter

    Autograph fans attending Celebration V in Orlando August 12-15 can look forward to meeting their favorite cast and crew stars from the Star Wars movies, particularly from The Empire Strikes Back, when Official Pix returns to Celebration with a great list of guests.

    "We are once again honored to be chosen to produce the autograph program for Lucasfilm, and for Reed Exhibitions at Celebration V," says Ben Stevens, co-owner of Official Pix.

    Stevens and Philip Wise, partners in the company, plan to bring guests whose combined careers span all six episodes of the saga, with special attention to guests from The Empire Strikes Back to honor the 30th anniversary of the beloved movie, and from the popular television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

    Official Pix will use an efficient fast path system to minimize time spent waiting in line, allowing more time for fans to enjoy the abundance of Star Wars programming at Celebration V. The company is the licensed supplier of authentic Star Wars autographs, and have brought memorable guests to Celebrations II, III, IV, and Japan. Collectors can rest assured that they will get their autographs on high-quality prints of unique images of the stars.

    The company plans to use a coupon system at the show, with details soon to be announced. In general, fans will purchase and use an appropriate number of coupons for each autograph. The coupons will be good for autographs on Official Pix Celebration V images, or can be used for autographs on items brought from home. Fans should note that licensed Star Wars products are typically acceptable, but signing non-licensed items, like homemade images or toys, is up to the discretion of each autograph guest.

    Collectors who do not wish to wait may purchase previously-signed photos from many of the stars who will be signing in the Official Pix area in the exhibit hall.

    Autograph guests who will appear at Celebration V will be announced soon, and new guests will be added and announced as the show draws near. Look for updates at www.starwarscelebration.com and www.officialpix.com.

    When I went to C2 & C3 they had a giant Trivia Contest at both of the Fan Club partys. They basiclly did it like at SMF. They asked a ??? you moved from one side to the other till they were down to like 10/12? than went from there. they had something like 2-300 people in it. It worked out fine. Not sure if they will do it that way again? But it worked.

    Hey Jeff,

    Thanks for the offer but we have a room all ready. Actually a 2300 sq" Condo! YEAH USE!! lol But thanks again for the offer. I'm sure you'll find someone? You should look to post over on the Facebook site for the Con. I think they are working on making a link to the main websit for us to start post things like that as well? I know for the last couple cons they had links for you to post things like looking for roommates, hitch a ride, whatever. Hopefully we'll see something like that soon. Who knows? Well best of luck! See you there .....

    Later,
    TK

    YEah baBy!!

    We have also picked up our tickets for the "Last Tour of ENdor" at Disney on Saturday night. Should be a GREAT time. How cool is that going to be ... be one of the last one to ride Star Tours forever!! It is kinda sad as well... :_|

    My brother has picked up a car for us all for the week. All he ask is that we chip in for gas. No biggie! So now we have a way to and from the airport. As well as away to get us around Orlando. Any where we wish to go. I can't wait to cruise I-Drive like back in the day. lol

    All right. I have also set up shipping for us all though Jetpack. Ralph is going to ship everything for us right to the hotel and includ return shipping label to ship right back to the store. It will go UPS. With all tracking and anything else we need. We will be shipping them out on that Monday before we fly out. That way they are wait for us when we get in. The hotel will hold everything for us. I have already talked to them. It's all set.

    So..till the next update. If anyone has any ??? let me know.

    SeeYa,
    TK
