    I am pleased to proclaim that Havelock is now an official FanForce chapter!!! :D

    I've also made an official announcement in the South Region General Discussion forum.

    Congratulations to your City Rep, Grilled-Sarlacc, and the rest of you, for putting together such a great group so quickly! :)

    I now expect great things from this group. ;) You all have made me a very happy RSA. :)

    Grilled, I'll be in touch.

    Remember, if any of you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

    You're very welcome, SgtFretSurfer, but it was your group who made this possible. :)

    Now that Havelock is official, you must send me a 'tribute' of one cheesecake per month. :p

    Hey, I don't actually get paid for this gig, so I might as well get something out of it. :p

    Guys, be sure to make the first month's cheesecake one of those with chocolate swirled into it. ;)

    Hey, I can cook! ;) I know how to boil eggs and make cold cereal! :D

    Thanks JLK!

    Minacia, I know it was the group as a whole that made this happen - and we have the best group of all! Havelock rules! We're officially on the map!

    Guys, all you have to do is go to the frozen food section of your local grocery store, and there you should find plenty of Sara Lee cheesecakes to choose from. The one with the chocolate chips is especially good. ;)

    I'm waiting on my cheesecake. *taps foot impatiently*

    :p

    Howdy all! Here is Minacia's latest newsletter for your reading!! We're mentioned in there! :)




    South Region Newsletter #8, Feb. 2002

    Greetings! It has been awhile since the last South Region newsletter was sent out. We have a lot of catching up to do, as much has happened since then. This is my first attempt at putting together a newsletter, so don?t say I didn?t warn you!

    Now, without further ado, here is the news!

    SOUTH REGION NEWS




    New South Region RSA

    Hama-Ryu Kinnebi, who was the FanForce South Regional Support Admin for quite some time, was promoted to FanForce Global Support Admin in October of 2001. Congratulations to Hama on his promotion!

    When Hama moved up in the FanForce world, the position of South Regional Support Admin needed to be filled. Fortunately for me, I, Minacia_Brightstar, was chosen to take over as the South Region RSA. I?m hoping that with a little hard work, and some help from all of you, that we can grow and bring even more people from our region into the FanForce fold. If anyone has any questions or concerns about our region, or about FanForce in general, please feel free to contact me at minacia@fanforce.net.





    Ft. Lauderdale Is Now An Official FanForce Chapter

    Since the last newsletter was released, Ft. Lauderdale has become an official FanForce chapter. A belated congratulations to Ft. Lauderdale!

    To visit the Ft. Lauderdale forum, go to this link.

    With the addition of Ft. Lauderdale, our region now has three official FanForce chapters:

    Atlanta, GA (Hothlanta Rebels)
    Ft. Lauderdale, FL (The Fandomenace)
    Nashville, TN (Nashville After Darth)





    Atlanta and Nashville Now Have Web Sites!

    Both the Atlanta and Nashville FanForce chapters have recently gotten their web sites up and running. JediToren of Nashville and red_rose of Atlanta have worked very hard to put together their groups? respective web sites, so surf on over and check them out!

  11. Atlanta ( Hothlanta Rebels)

  12. Nashville (Nashville After Darth)





  13. Nashville City Rep Gets Promoted to USA RSA

    The FanForce forums have been growing and will continue to become more active as the Episode II release date approaches. In response to this, the FanForce Global Support Staff decided that it would be a good idea to appoint a ?floating? USA Regional Support Admin to assist in the Celebration II forums, and to help out the other RSAs. Nashville?s City Rep, Elan-Rai, was chosen to take over this role. Congratulations, Elan-Rai!





    Orlando, FL Works Toward Becoming An Official FanForce Chapter

    Star Wars fans in Orlando held their very first meeting on December 9th, at the Hunt Club library. Despite the fact that their meeting area had a large poster of Barney pasted on the wall, they bravely carried on. After wrapping up their meeting, they made their way to Chili?s for dinner. Their second meeting came shortly thereafter in January. First, they met at Chili?s for lunch, and then gathered at the library for the meeting. They will be holding their third meeting on February 9th, at the Hunt Club library. At the completion of the Feb. 9th meeting, Orlando will be eligible for official FanForce chapter status.

    For more information about the Orlando group and the upcoming meeting, go to this link.

    Rumors that several members of the Chili?s staff were hospitalized for hysteria and exhaustion after the Orlando group visited their establishment have not been confirmed. ;)

    Hey Havelock! Here is Minacia_Brightstar's new newsletter!! :)


    South Region Newsletter #9, March 2002

    I can hardly believe that it is March already. It seems just like
    last week when I released the February edition of this newsletter.
    The South region has seen much activity of late, which is a very good
    thing. And the release of Attack of the Clones draws ever closer.
    Since so much has been going on, I suppose I'd better get on with the
    news.


    SOUTH REGION NEWS

    City Rep.

    Congratulations to the folks in Orlando on becoming an official

    HAVELOCK, NC IS NOW OFFICIAL!

    Orlando wasn't the only FanForce chapter working toward official
    status on Feb. 9th. On that day, fans in Havelock, NC also held
    their third meeting. Well, actually, they went fishing, but they had
    enough people in the boat to meet FanForce "officialdom"
    requirements. So, Havelock is now official!

    The Havelock FF chapter name is "Spice Miners," and the group's
    members have elected Grilled-Sarlacc to be their City Rep.

    Congratulations, Havelock!

    Yeah, the Southern Region has gotten quite a few city forums! :) Yay!

    I'm not reading the AotC book until after I see the movie. And do you have any idea how tempted I am to click on that link below in the "Latest Headlines" box that says "AOTC Soundtrack Full Track Listings"? :p I'm not going to, though, because that would be a potentially large spoiler. :p

    C'mon May 16th! Come faster! ;) :)

    I am definitely reading the novel before the movie comes out. I did that last time for Ep1 and it did not ruin the experience for me. IMO, it enhanced it. I knew so much more background-related stuff for each scene so it had more impact.

    Another thing I can't wait to get my hands on is the new soundtrack!!!! :D

    It will be a real test of my willpower not to read the novel before the movie. It will be on every bookstand and I will see it within reach. But I really want to see it first and then read the book to get all the details while the movie is fresh in my mind.

    I read the Episode I novel after I saw the movie the first time. When I went back to see the movie again, it was a richer experience.

    I've ordered my Episode II release poster, so I'm pretty happy. :D Now I'm waiting to get my grubby little hands on the soundtrack. ;)

    Yeah, I think I'll see it once, read the book that night, and go see it again as soon as I can after that! [face_laugh] ;) Hopefully. :p

    And I'm not even looking at the soundtrack, because my cousin said it ruined TPM when he got that soundtrack before he saw the movie, because of "Qui-Gon's Noble End" he knew Qui-Gon would die... I know, that's pathetic, oh well. LOL!

    It'll definately be a good patience exercise. ;)
