    Hey all!

    Was just wondering if there's a FanForce dinner planned for this year :) If so, count me in!

    Of course! :D

    Right now, the dinner is scheduled for Saturday, September 4th, at 5:30 p.m. The location will once again be Trader Vic's in the downtown Hilton hotel. If this time and date comes into conflict with a big SW-related panel or event, it could change.

    More information will be forthcoming. :)

    This socks owner will be attending Dragon*Con this year and is hoping traveling FF members can attend. How about it? :D

    If you're referring to the FanForce dinner? All FF members can attend. That's the whole point behind it, actually.

    If you're referring to Dragon*Con? Anyone with enough money to buy the badge can attend. And yes, we hope that a lot of FF folks from outside Atlanta will join us. It makes it much more fun.

    [face_blush] D'oh. Yes, I was referring to the dinner. I've already taken care of my D*C ticket and plane tickets. ;)

    That's great! We have a lot of fun meeting everyone from the rest of the country at the FF Dinner.

    Mandy will post more about the dinner in just a couple of weeks.

    That sounds great. I had a good time at the Celebration 2 FF dinner and I can't wait for this one. I'll keep checking back for the price and other info. :)

    I'm still working with the Trader Vic's management on the details of the dinner right now. I am going to need an accurate head count, so I will need RSVPs. (actually, I'll ask folks to add their names to a list, like last year.)

    Brian, I'll go ahead and put you down for two seats. :)

    Cool, thanks! Just wanted to avoid last-minute bending of the RSVP rules this year ;)

    FF dinner! Another member of the HR and I are planning on getting that enormous drink that everyone else tried last year. For those that tried it last year, what did it taste like?

    Also MB put me down for two on the list.

    Just a heads up for everyone: Before the Mr. Star Wars at DragonCon at 10pm, there will be a panel at 8:30 called MythConceptions in the GFFA(Galaxy, Far, Far, Away) This panel is being moderated by two of our Charleston Fanforcers and they certainly can use your support. Sort of a spoiler free Prequel Speculation panel that will discuss what we think might happen, and compare it to literary works like Shakespeare and see if these "theories" fit into what they think the mythological or literary path Lucas has taken with the rest of the movie.

    If you haven't read Othello, I definitely suggest doing so , lots of similiarities to the Prequels. Anyway, just wanted to help promote some of our fellow fanforcers. Saturday will definitely be a "Fan Force" night.

    That big fish tank of a drink would be the Scorpion Bowl. It's supposed to be for four, but it's best shared by two or three. As for the taste... it's got citrus juices, rum, and orgeat (kind of almondy syrup).

    Unfortunately my fiance (BenaeQuee) and I can't make it down this year. We're saving for Celebration 3 (and our wedding... priorities, priorities). So, drink up me hearties, yo ho. :)

    I'm from the Columbus area. There are a bunch of us planning to attend.

    When do we have to rsvp for the dinner? We will have our group meeting on the 22nd. Is that too late?

    Also, if anyone know of anyone who has purchase a pass but can't use it, we have a member in our area that is looking to buy one...please post a reply on the Columbus board.

    See ya'll there & Thanks, Hollie

    Hi Hollie! Here's the link with all the news on the dinner that Minacia put together. It should have all the details you are looking for.

    I'm looking forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones from other FanForce chapters.

    Only 22 days left!! 8-}

    Oh, I'll be staying at the Marriott Friday to Sunday night of the con. Maybe I'll be the one keeping you up Minacia, muwahahahaha! [face_devil]

    This year I am taking Thursday off to get ready for the con and Tuesday off to catch up on sleep and recover! I think it's the only way I'll get through it. [face_dancing]

    I'll be taking Thursday off, as well as the Tuesday and Wednesday after the con to veg out.

    So, if someone starts banging on my hotel room door at 4:00 a.m. and then runs away laughing maniacally, I can safely assume that it might be you, Jace? :p ;)

    It's hearing stuff like that that makes me regret not staying at the hotels during Dragon*Con. But when GenCon is two weeks before, it gets a little too costly to also stay at Dragon*Con.

    Just take a lot of photographic blackmail, er, I mean evidence.
