    Since late 2004, Chattooine has had monthly meetings at The Rave Theater in Chattanooga on every 2nd Monday of the month at 6:30pm in their party room. Everyone is welcome!! We have random quizzes (with prizes) and discuss everything and everything geeky.

    Please check out the website (www.chattooine.com) as events are listed there along with the latest pictures.

    I just finished posting pictures from as far back as our very first official meeting (Sep 2004) on the website. Eight years strong, yo! We're still doing events (looking at costuming up for The Hobbit next) and planning our End of the World party (which thankfully takes place after The Hobbit... or at least part 1... Well that settles it. The world can't end yet. Still, we can have a party about it. We'll also be marching in the annual "Santa Arrival parade" at Hamilton Place Mall... something we've done for years.

    Although we have a pretty random quiz at the beginning of our monthly meetings (with prizes!), I'd like to come up with some stuff to liven it up a bit. Something to help bring people into talking more and not just listen to me run down a list of past events and upcoming stuff. Any thoughts?

    Next meeting: December 10, 2012 @ 6:30pm in the party room of The Rave Theater. As always, just tell the ticket taker you're with "the Star Wars group" and they'll point you in the right direction. We'll be discussing The Hobbit premier (costuming up for the midnight premier on Dec 13th and going back Friday night at 7:30pm). We'll also discuss plans for our annual Christmas party, but we'll also be incorporating the End of the World party. Might as well go out with a bang, right? Also, we're looking to throw a New Year's PJ's bash. Should be fun! Game/movie nights have returned!! On the 4th Friday of every month (to make planning easier), I'll be hosting either a movie double feature night or a game night (which we'll vote on beforehand).

    Of course with Disney planning to release more Star Wars movies, there's always help available for those that would like to start planning for costuming future events. Chattooine's first BIG event was Episode III, so the NEXT one will be HUGE for us.

    Just a reminder, we meet every 2nd Monday of the month at Carmike East Ridge 18 + IMAX (formally known as The Rave Cinemas) at 6:30pm. Meetings usually last about an hour or so. We've got a reputation now of costuming at various movie premiers throughout the year, so there's always stuff to look forward to (and help if you need it). Some examples of the movies we've costumed for are:

    Star Wars (of course), Harry Potter, Pirates, GI Joe, OZ: The Great and Powerful, Muppets, Avengers (and any Marvel comic book movie), Batman (and other DC comics movies), The Hobbit, MIB 3, etc...

    We do the annual Santa Arrival Parade at Hamilton Place Mall every year along with doing a few events for the Chattanooga Zoo and Creative Discovery Museum, and we always hit a few stores on Free Comic Book Day. We even were involved with a production with the Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra (BOOtacular).

    We also have social events and gatherings from time to time. Armor parties, bowling, Talk Like A Pirate Day, skating, paintball, picnics, game nights, Christmas parties, etc

    And we help out with various charities. We've been involved with the Boy Scouts, Chattanooga Food Bank, American Heart Association (Heart Association Ball), March of Dimes (Gormet Gala),

    Pictures from past events can be found on our website: www.chattooine.com

    Chattooine just finished doing a (gasp!) Star Trek event! Yup! We dressed up and costumed 2 nights at Carmike East Ridge (formerly "The Rave"). Sandwiched between the two events, we made a trip to Ft. Payne, AL to cover a last minute request for costumers for a Relay for Life cancer event. Pics for all those events are now on the website.

    Up next:
    We're going to cheer on the cyclists at the Volkswagon USA Cycling Professional Road & Time Trial National Championships on Memorial Day (5/27). It'll be pot luck on costuming, so the more colorful or stand-out(ish), the better!
    Game nights are every 4th Friday of the month.
    Meetings are every 2nd Monday of the month.

    We're also gearing up for Man of Steel, Wolverine, Kick Ass 2, Disney's Frozen, Thor 2, and The Hobbit 2.

    Reminder about the meeting schedules:

    The name was changed, but the place is still the same. What used to be called "The Rave" theater is now Carmike East Ridge. We still meet on every 2nd Monday of the month at 6:30pm. Some of us get there around 6:00pm for some social time. When you arrive, do not buy a movie ticket. Just let the ticket taker know you're with Chattooine and they'll direct you to the Party Room (glass-walled room to the right).
