    SO if we can all try to meet at noon at the Metreon the Saturday before Comic-Con to settle on final things it would be great. Basically it's for those going to the con so it's not one of our regular meetings. We will probably have that on the 23rd at a special location.

    I'll come to the meeting at the Metreon this weekend too. I'm excited and stressing at the same time... I can construct a Leia ANH costume in a week right? I'm off to start drafting my pattern now.

    IMPORTANT: I just found out that a friend's funeral is at 10 am on Saturday. Could we move the meeting later in the afternoon, say 5 pm? If not, how's Sunday at 12 noon?

    Sorry to hear about the funeral Matt :( Sunday is better for me, but if everyone else is only able to do 5:00 pm Saturday I can be there.

    Sunday is not aproblem for me either Matt.

    If anybody wants to see Howl's Moving Castle that day, Miyazaki is good for the soul, I have about 6 AMC passes. Not good for Metreon unfortunately but good for AMC Kabuki where it is playing.

    I'm sorry to hear about that Matt.
    I won't be able to come either time, but I am sure someone can catch me up over the phone later.
    Hope everything goes smoothly.

    Oh man - I just started reading through Friday's line-up for Comic Con. Natalie's cute and all, but I've gotta check out the 10:30 Anchor Bay Presentation with Jerry O'Connell [face_blush] Why these presentations have to be at the same time is beyond me!

    Thanks for the words of encouragement guys. I thought I wouldn't be going to one for a long time, but as life sometimes is, the circumstances are quite similar too. I can let you know off-board. So if Sunday is good, then Sunday it is, 12 pm, Metreon. See you there.

    See you all on Sunday!

    So, it looks like the RL photo shoot is still taking place on Friday? Is that problematic for people who want to attend panels at 10:30 & 11:00 am? If this convention is anything like CIII I'd imagine the lines start early for that stuff.

    My condolences on the loss of your friend, JedHead1.

    To those of you attending Comic Con, try to enjoy yourselves a little moreso than usual so that those of us who couldn't make it might live vicariously through you :D

    Join the SDSWS for dinner at Greek Islands Cafe
    879 W Harbor Dr # E, San Diego, CA 92101
    (in Seaport Village, on the water, all the way at the northern end of the complex)
    - about a 10 minute walk from the convention center.

    I assume most if not all of us will be going to this. I've invited a friend who has taken care of us in the past as our guest.

    And info for the Official 501st photo shoot

    501st Picture - Saturday Morning 8:30 a.m.

    Meet at the exterior staircase, next to the inclined
    elevator on Harbor drive at 8:30 a.m.

    We will begin immediately at 8:30 a.m. so that
    volunteers are free before their shifts begin and the droid hunt can
    commence.

    Best Buy is about 1/2 mile away and Costco is 3 miles away. Ralph's Grocery is another 1/2 mile further up the same road. Our supply of ramen is well secured as well as any emergency tech needs.
