This is for any JC people who stop by. Normal FF people already know about it but here's the info again. Darth Astuart posted 11-27-2000 01:08 PM Jedi Knight (Moderator) Hello gang-- Ho ho ho! Welcome to the holiday season! While you plot out your shoppingstrategies and try to enjoy a moment's peace, lemme tell you about our Chicago Force holiday event for 2000. THE CHICAGO FORCE HOLIDAY SPECIAL SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2000 Part I: Playing the Field 9 a.m. A group of CF members will be meeting up for The Stories Behind Star Wars and Sue, a special day-long seminar at the Field Museum that covers the designing of both the Magic of Myth exhibit and the Sue exhibit. Some of the guests include Lorne Peterson, Paul Huston, and Rob Coleman from Industrial Light & Magic. Cost is $30 and the group will just be meeting up at the event itself. Read more about it at: http://www.fmnh.org/CalendarSystem/exhibit_item.asp?ID=37 Part II: We Would Be Honored...If You Would Join Us 6:30 p.m. (approximately) After the Field, the gang will be catching up with more of us at Tucci Benucch, a moderately-priced Italian restaurant located in the mall at 900 N. Michigan Avenue downtown, for a fine meal and conversation. Also, we'll hold a Star Wars Holiday grab bag--bring a fun SW-related gift wrapped up for another CF member costing no more than $15, and you can draw a gift from the pot! If you'll be attending dinner, PLEASE E-MAIL ME at firstname.lastname@example.org as I'll be making reservations earlier that week to insure that we get seating of some kind. Part II: Grody to the IMAX! 10 p.m. Finally, we'll progress from dinner to Navy Pier for a screening of whatever fine action offering the good folks at IMAX has deemed worthy of our time, probably either Gladiator or The Matrix. If you've never attended one of these late-night films at the IMAX, it's supercool--it's a regular 35mm print of the film broadcast at normal size on the IMAX screen, with the full brunt of the massive IMAX sound system behind it. Big fun. The day has been designed in segments so that folks can opt to only do parts of it, or tackle the whole enchilada. If anyone has any questions, please shoot me an e-mail, and again, if you'd like to attend the dinner, PLEASE E-MAIL ME so that I can make reservations. That's it. Whether you can make it out to the CF holiday event, have a joyous holiday season and a happy Life Day!
