It's been approximately a year since the last CR elections, and considering the lack of organised activities, I think it's time someone else has a go at the job. This isn't a sleight on the fanforce (by which i mean the members who make our great group), but the way things have slowed down here has pained me. We used to be a very close group of friends, and while I realize people move on, or change interests, or grow out of certain things and move on, there's no reason the people who still check the boards every day hoping for some kind of get-together can't take the figurative ball and run with it. It'd be nice to get a few activities going where we can try to recruit new members using the base of great people we have that still take a daily interest in the fanforce and hopefully rebuild it and have a slightly changed circle of fellow dorks (and not just Star Wars geeks). I'd like to take a crack at the title with an eye to being the one to help rebuild and recruit, while still holding out hope that some of the "oldbies" will pop in on occasion. Now I work kinda weird hours now that I'm doing security full time, but I have no problem popping in on events when I'm in town and thankfully with plentiful internet access at my job I can help organize events, or at least provide input/assistance as someone who's planned some pretty elaborate events, like the first Forcefest and the C3 trip. I'm hoping to attract new members by opening up to different types of fans. People who like Star Wars, but it might not be their first interest, because while Star Wars has been an icon for decades now, with no new movies on the horizon its popularity is kind of waning (but with the cartoon and TV series a good base for attracting people to our interest!), so by opening up to new fans, people who might be into sci-fi, or fantasy or comics in general and have seen the saga and have an appreciation for it, we can keep the group alive. So, if someone would like to see someone else have a try at being CR for our great fanforce, then speak up. Even if you don't get behind me as CR, let's see some forward momentum on the boards, or at least some open discussion about the idea..
