    And now there's actually a reason to venture back to SWC.com- Registration begins in 2 days- that's Monday the 27th, folks. -Campbell

    So I took the plunge.
    They've charged me $97.95 (4-day badge and Vader topper). I can't think of any great reson to have registered so early other than to be one of the first. And to stretch the expenses over a wider swath of time.

    To sign up you must register for a Gen*Con login. During the purchase process there is a spot for "discounts." As I clicked on through I thought that there's a decent chance that there will be a discount or 2 offered to me in the next 7 months, but decided to leap anyhow because honestly, based on what I saw at C2, $95 is not an unreasonable price to pay for the fun that'll be had.

    If you're considering making this purchase, note that the passes won't be mailed out until about March, so you're paying for an e-mail at this point. The good news is that you've gotten that hurdle behind you. That small peace of mind is worth it to me. -Campbell

    Who's even considering it at this point? I imagine Sharon and Dale and I are probably the only definites. Am I right?

    Right now I don't think I'll have the finances nor the vacation time available during that time of the year. It does sound like it'll be a blast, though. Especially considering it's on the eve of EIII.

    I'm still wanting to go. I have to do some creative financing between the upcoming holidays, scuba trips and living expenses. Somewhere in there I need to find a little extra money for C3. So don't count me out yet.

    I suggest dropping any hokey religions this holiday season and saving a bundle of credits.

    Yeah, Aaron we are planning on going. Though I've discovered the unpleasant fact that exams start on April 26-May 2nd. Grrrrr. Road trip up and extremely fast road trip back home!

    No fun. Maybe save your strength at the end of the days (avoid the parties), and get a bit of review in each evening? All best, in that department.

    Consider taking up the conversation over here, so we can keep it in one place: http://fanforce.roguezeppo.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=23&sid=cd81146627dea69c0821183801d018a3
    Anyone have a video set up? Several of us talk about making a fanfilm that never follow through. Well, I'm an idea man, and that's my MO. What say we make a film about the ragtag rebels of Orlando venturing north to Indy?

    Expect that same idea to be reposted at the New Republic, RogueZeppo's. -Campbell

    Greetings from Eastern NC!

    Hey Dale! Hope you had a good holiday. I see you're making the trip to Indy in April. Kevin and I will be heading up there also (as well as a couple of guys I went to C2 with). Have you made any hotel plans yet? I'd love to catch up with you again.

    Hey Dale -

    We're doing well around here. Getting back into the old routine now that the holidays are finally over. We're booked at the Embassy Suites, so we're not too far from you. (Beats the heck out of the Airport Days Inn we were at for C2). Kevin is trying to figure out which costumes he wants to bring. He's got a Royal Guard that's he had and a Darth Vader he just finished. He has some Stormtrooper armor, but it needs a little work. I don't have any costumes, though I've been debating looking into an Imperial Officer or a simple Jedi outfit. I need something close to regular clothes. Anything requiring helmets or a whole lot of bulky clothing might drive me crazy! :p I'm planning on being at the FF/501st/RL party, so I'll see you there if not before. As it gets closer, maybe we can exchange cell numbers beforehand and meet up. Take care!

    Was wondering if anyone wanted to carpool up to Indiana. Looking for folks to split the gas and share the driving. I was going to rent a car and drive up. I live in the Daytona Beach area and most of the people there are not going. Any takers. Post it in here, or send me a private message, either one works.

    We were going to carpool, but we fell a person short to make it affordable, so a few days ago we all made arrangements to fly. You might want to post in the Southeastern FanForce area to grab someone else's attention in the Central Florida area.

    Forja- Also, you may want to at least check the prices of flights. Roguescribner and I just purchased ours this week for $141 apiece through Expedia. I was deadset for driving this past year, then out of the blue, the circumstances, and the price ratio of cheap flight versus rising gas costs completely swayed me to the sky. (Might) see you there! -Campbell

    I also just bought two tickets, and only paid 341$ for the set. Same flight time as Mike and Campbell.

    Hey I am the ACR and cheif costumeor for Tampa group, perhaps our groups can hook up at C3. We are planning on flying up the day before and leaving the day after the convention ends. We are flying out of Tampa on Southwestern for $138.40 round trip per person and staying at the Marriott right next to the convention center. We are so psyched for this event and the more the merrier.

    Annya, will you be attending the FanForce Party on Friday night? That might be a good place to meet. -Campbell
