Hello all! This is my very first post here at TFN---I live in central Illinois (Pana--very central) and I would like to possibly start a Fan Force in my area, or to see if anyone else is near me. I know there are Forces in St. Louis and Chicago, but that is pretty far from me still to easily make any meetings. I did see something on here about Terre Haute as well, but I am pretty much halfway between there and St. Louis. Anyone from Central Illinois interested??? I thought before I had read someone on here from Springfield (pretty much the biggest city in our area) was wanting to know if anyone in the area was here---Taylorville, Shelbyville, Pana, Decatur, Effingham, Mattoon...these are some towns around here... I would love to get together with other Star Wars fans! I love the idea of getting a group together to go to conventions! I am also planning on starting a costume---looking at Boba Fett... Thanks! FettFan79 I'm gonna knock this down to just one thread about a Central IL group intersest.
