    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 mateo63@hotmail.com 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!

    I was just checking on showtimes and it looks like it would be The Matrix. Here are the listings on the site for Gladiator and The Matrix

    Gladiator (R) P.M.
    Mon - Tue 8:00

    The Matrix
    Friday & Saturday

    I will almost certainly be there for the museum and probably the restuarant. I need to check on Imax though. But this is not definite. Definitive answer will be available on Wednesday.

    Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the Holiday Special. Empyre, that means that I won't be able to give you a ride. Sorry about the late notice, I just found out today that my great grandmother died and I am a pall bearer. Joy.

    Real sorry about what happened, Mav. And don't worry about the late notice. Your need is much more important than mine. I can always catch the South Shore back also.
    I will pray for you and your family.

    XMav, sorry to hear about your GGM. :(

    DA, I know I just sent you an email that I'd definitely be there for dinner and movie, but now problems have developed and won't be in Chicago at all that weekend. I'll send you a PM to this affect also, and later tonight an email, so you can adjust your reservations at the restaurant.

    I'm gonna miss being there, gang! But I'm sure y'all will have a great time.

    Penguin, I'll be sending you a message sometime asking about what your schedule is for later on in December, b/c we still want to try to catch SW:MoM while it's at the Field, and I'd really love to have that private tour we discussed.

    The Midwest Garrison of the 501st Legion will be at the Field Museum December 9th. We have 19 confirmed members attending in costume that day with 6 returning on Sunday.

    Sorry to hear about your GG, Xmav. :(

    Anyway, I just wanted to say that I'm so jealous. I wish I could go, but with finals coming up and projects due, mesa has no time at all. [face_sigh] Okay, that's it from me. For now...

    Hi All!

    There has been a slight change in scheduling for dinner on Sat!

    We are now meeting at 7:30. That's 19:30 in mililtary time. 7:30!

    So see you guys at Tucci's at approx. 7:30. If you want to come a little earlier, in the hope that we can get seated earlier, go for it.

    That is all

    Why? Is it to better fit with the late showing of Matrix? Or just because? Oh well. Cancel my spot on your list. The Last South Shore heads back at 8:00 so I won't be able to make it.

    Sorry I wasn't more specific Empyre.
    The time was changed because reservations could not be made for the 6:30 time.

    :( You can't come

    I do not know when l will be getting in. Thanks to the time difference between Chicago and South Bend, the posted schedule for the South Shore makes no sense. I will either be there at 9:00 or 10:00. I will see you there though. And This time I will watch for someone with green hair (which I hope Le_Penguin still has).

    I had planned to make it to the seminar at the Field, but now... I dunno. ::shrug:: I may just head on down there anyway, and just hang out at the Museum Campus. :) Maybe meet up with folks for lunch... someone reply to this and let me know what plans are for that.
