    Nothing "offical" has been posted yet, but unoffically everyones talking about Indy again. The dates are unoffically 4/22 - 4/24, 2005. Some pretty big people are spreading the word and posting all over the Net. I had a friend call one of the ladies his is real close with at Gen Con and she confirmed the above. Now all us Star Wars fans are waiting for is the offical announcement and then watch out. well not really, a lot of hotels wont let you book so far in advance, but Im getting the biggest suite I can. Better end this before someone falls asleep.

    Fall asleep??! Never!! We'd be too afraid to! :D Thank you for replying. Indy in April- Brrrr (the Floridian says..) So far away!!!
    Well, it'll be something we can look forward to after Megacon and what else??
    Had a blast hanging with everyone at FX and can't wait to see what is next. I feel dwarfed in your knowledge of collecting but we all have to have our talents, right? We just have to see an inventory of your stuff, compare it against Campbell's and see who is the King Collector. Any bets anyone? Well, all rumors or facts regarding Celebration, please keep us posted!

    Thank the Maker.
    Here it is, kids, the promised land. The official [link=http://starwars.com/community/news/2004/01/news20040123.html] site[/link] has finally officially announced Celebration III. And it's a day longer!

    Hyperspace has Celebration's entire itin. each day, every hour, which rooms have what already. WOW! I think I'm going to book the van now. Cheaper that way. Dale, I know you said some hotels don't book this far out but some do. As a travel agent I think I'm going to start looking in my system at work. Did anyone go to this event before and know which hotels I should be looking at?
    All info. welcome regarding Celebration II

    The new logo for C3 has been released. As ESB is my favorite episode, I'm very glad to note that, like the C2 logo, it's a variation on an Empire theme. This time it's the old Vader in flames image. For a look, see TOS.

    Another part of 2005's SW calendar comes further into focus.

    I've heard good things about the less-terrifying Strawberry Festival. When in Kentucky look for the Wooly Worm Festival in Bath County.

    That festival sounds so much more fun than the St. Patricks Day festival. Where if you squint your eyes the wrong way you fall over :D
    You wouldn't know anything about that would you Pablo? Or is Jimmy? Or P?

    For those of us that haven't secured a hotel reservation for Celebration3, and hope to go, it's time to get a move on. Many of the hotels are filling up. Got any good tips on places to stay? Drop a line. -Campbell

    I've heard that www.starwarscelebration.com has reserved chunks of rooms in 1400-room blocks from various hotels. The Hyatt (where Aaron, Ia, my fiancee (Christie), and I want to stay) says it's booked, but that could be due to the enormous booking of www.starwarscelebration.com. That website says rooms will go on sale through them later this summer! So keep a sharp eye out. In Indianapolis, several hotels are hooked up to the convention center with above-ground walkways (I'm guessing due to snow). The Hyatt is one of these. Supposedly the website booked them all in order to make sure starwars fans can all be there together. Personally, Celebration II was awesome and I can't wait for Celebration III!

    From http://www.starwarscelebration.com:

    Details about programming, guests, activities, entertainment and exclusive merchandise at Celebration III will be released as they are confirmed closer to the convention. The main places to check for information will be www.starwars.com, the official site, and www.starwarscelebration.com. Online ordering for admission to the event and for discounted hotel rooms is scheduled to begin late this summer.

    We can?t give many details quite yet, but rest assured that there is a long, long list of exceptional surprises to look forward to. We?ll reveal those surprises in the Community section of www.starwars.com and at www.starwarscelebration.com.






    I can't wait!

    You're not alone, Stewart. The air's beginning to buzz a little with the thought of Celebration3. It appears the official hotel of the Orlando System just may be The Courtyard Downtown Indy hotel. Dale and his large gang, Susan and husband, Campbell and his Canadian friend, and Melanie all have reservations there. What other places are people staying? -CE

    Mike, it's a chunk of change, and it requires a fair bit of time off, but this thing is amazing. I went to C2 and didn't know a soul. In the Indy airport I made friends. Everybody there wants to talk about Star Wars. Even standing in line was fun because all of the sudden everybody you saw was a fan.

    If you're even close to teetering, start saving now and get thee to C3. CE

    We're going up on Wednesday and coming back Monday. I loved C1 and C2-can't wait for C3! I'm sure it will be awesome! I met a lot of really great people at both celebrations.

    Tickets, and presumably the official block of rooms thru Lucasfilm, should be on sale around September according to the recent grapevine.

    Mike, I know you're busy but do we have a countdown clock for Celebration? We should. Just a suggestion.
