    What: The Star Wars Dinner and a Movie Series featuring The Simpsons Movie with dinner afterwards

    When: July the 28th at the 7pm showing (tentative pending discovery of showtimes).

    Where: Patton Creek Rave, 4450 Creekside Road Hoover, AL 35244

    Dinner: Normally we go with the regulars which are MacAnnally's and O'Charlie's. But if anyone has a suggestion of something they would like to try then just let me know.

    Parental Note: This is The Simpsons Movie and so you probably know what you're getting. Lots of crude humor and some mild language but probably nothing too horrible.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, Hama.

    Some of you guys may know our group. We have been around quite a while, and after much consideration among our Officers and some very helpful chatting between Hama and myself, we've decided to help out both or organizations (Syndicate and FanForce) by joining Forces and pledging our fan power behind FanForce!

    I thank you for the understanding, and hope this new FanForce will see this forum spark back up with activity.

    Oh my.. well, if we're going down the Southern road, guess I'll need to find a "Bear Bryant" hat for Selk's Adm. Ackbar! LOL.

    Success!

    We enjoyed the Simpsons movie, followed by an excellent dinner at the SUMO Japanese restaurant at Patton Creek. The discussion afterwards was engaging and typical of our club. (I had to try hard not to spoil a lot of Expanded Universe material that I had read for the less-EU versed in the party!)

    I will post up some linked pictures as soon as we get them online. :)

    I had fun guys! I'm glad that SUMO was a success with everyone. I really like the change to saturday...it seems like more people are able to come. ^^

    I agree, Saturday is much more laid back than the rush to the theater on Fridays after work on the other side of town.

    Sumo was a great suggestion for dinner. We were able to linger a little while after we finished eating, till they started giving us the "you go now!" look. :oops:

    Pictured are, from left to right: Roger (predator), Kevin (Bors Kaegel.. giggity.), Josh (MasterMispar), Kristina (Ladyvader), and our very own Cole, known for his uncanny resemblance to Hugh Jackman.

    Not pictured are Cindy (Jannae) and Jerry (Selk, and cameraman.)

    Sounds like you guys had a great time! Sorry I couldn't make it, but duty comes before pleasure. I spent my evening fighting with a seriously whacked VPN setup that refused to connect, but in the end, 1337 'Squad skillz prevailed... lol ;-)
