I think Kelsey and I are working in the Fan Club booth. We finally got a confirmation but haven't heard anything else since then.
Sounds cool. No more worrying about standing in line for your "Super-Special-Silver-Sandtrooper-Figure-Of-Collecting-Might"TM.
The entire programming schedule for Comic-Con 2004 is now up at the official site. Enjoy, and plan your days accordingly.

Now for a change from the recent "exhibitor-focused" post, here is the complete Autograph Area schedule for Comic-Con 2004:
Schedule for 2004[/link]
Numerous Star Wars celebrities will be making appearences, including Timothy Zahn, Terry Brooks, Greg Keyes, Mark Hamill, Steven Barnes, Kevin J. Anderson, Rebecca Moesta, and Mark Cotta Vaz.
I saw Carrie Fisher on your list earlier, Keiran, but I don't see her on the official list. Did she drop out? I was really hoping to get her autograph on the pic I have of Luke and Leia together, that Mark Hamill has already signed.
She's still attending as far as I know. The C2 Ventures list I posted earlier lists celebrities who will be signing at the Lucasfilm Pavilion in the Exhibit Hall.
Okay, but do you know which day she'll be there? I really have to plan this ahead of time, since I will most likely take the train down there...
Here's a link to a PDF file containing the entire signing schedule for the C2 Ventures booth inside the Lucas Pavilion:

Good, she's there on Saturday. Looks like it's a go for me, providing I can rustle up the moola...

From the looks of the maps, the Green Route is the one we'd most be interested in. It runs in a continuous loop both to and from the CC and makes stops at both the Westin and the Comfort Inn. Great alternative in case we don't feel like walking.

This is gonna be fun. Four of us are leaving tomorrow night, driving down to our friend's apartment near UCSD, and staying with him. He'll be coming with us on Thursday.
We won't be able to make Preview Night though.
