    Greetings! It's that time of year again... time to let your hair down and party (or if your hair is already down, put it up in hairbuns). Yes, it's time for Dragon*Con 2005.

    Is anyone here organizing a FF table? If so, do you need me to spread the word on recruiting people to work the table?

    Also, is the usual FF dinner scheduled for Saturday night?

    I'm sorry to report that we will not be having a FanForce table, this year. Without Mandy around to organize things, we just didn't have the manpower to get it going.

    However, both the 501st and Rebel Legion have assured us that they will let us non-costumed types hang out near them.

    We will, however, be hosting a Jawa Swap Meet at some point during DragonCon. Hopefully we'll be announcing the details of "when and where," this week.

    So start looking for collectibles you'd like to trade with someone.

    As I stated in another post; Have you seen the Dragon Con board in the Costuming and Props section? There are a group of people who are dressing like Star Wars characters who are getting together at D*C. Just FYI.

    Whatever happened to Minacia?

    Has she totally dropped out?

    Mandy has gone back to school. She's also dealing with some family things. So we only get to see her every now and then, these days.

    Maybe she'll come back to hang out when she graduates in a couple of years?

    Hopefully we'll get to see her at DragonCon!

    I take it there will be no FanForce dinner at Hanoi Hank's (or whatever that place is called).

    LMAO! In a really politically incorrect way, that was funny! You mean Trader Vic's??? Doesn't sound like the group has it together to do such. But things could change, right?

    LMAO Allie [face_laugh]

    Last tiem I went to Dragon Con, my table at the fanforce dinner had a $1300.00 food & liquor bill. Keep in mind there was like 14 of us. However I wasnt impressed with the food. Good booze though.

    Once again, we have to skip DragonCon. Perhaps next year. Until then, have a Mai Tai for me. :)

    We decided not to do Trader Vic's, this year. Too pricey and it always seemed to conflict with 501st events.

    We will, however, be hosting a Jawa Swap Meet. At this point, it looks to be on Saturday afternoon in the Marriott lobby. But we're waiting for the MOTF track to get back to us with schedules.

    So start looking over your collectibles and see if there's anything you'd like to trade out.

I'm sorry once again for my absence and non participation...you can kick me in my white plastic codpiece at the con.

    What's up guys? Listen... our group will have a FanForce table set up. The Star Wars Alabama Syndicate approached us about sharing the table, but by looking at their boards, they aren't planning anything, so I was going to extend the offer to you guys as well. I know it's just one table, but maybe we can have a tri-state thing going? Anyway, I know how nice it is to have a table to "meet" at and stuff, and because we have to have it manned during the whole con, it would be nice to spread it out some. We have a banner that we were hoping to hang off the table, but other than that, you're more than welcome to set up there. Let me know. See ya there!

    Litter away! LOL. Man... is it next weekend yet? [face_dancing] Anyway, yeah, that would be great! I'll be there Saturday and Sunday, but a few of our guys are going Friday to get the table up. I'll let them know to be expecting an X-Wing invasion. =D=

    Oh... and yeah, we'll be at Galacticon (or whatever) next year. We wanted to do something last time, but we were still new and not all together yet (if that makes sense). See ya there!

    That sounds like fun! Hopefully they'll actually put all the Star Wars groups together, this time.

    I don't know why they're so reluctant to do that. I guess it causes people flow problems. But it's so much more fun when the mobs of SW fans can be all in one place.

    Sadly, Aaron Allston won't be able to attend, this year. He messed up his knee at GenCon and just doesn't have the ability to prepare for and move around at a con, right now. A true shame, as he rather enjoyed hanging out at the fan tables.

    But I did e-mail with Steve Sansweet. He is still healthy and planning to be there with the updated Star Wars Spectacular.

    Mike Stackpole is also planning on attending. So keep an eye out for him at the writers tracks.

    We have 4 of us coming down from The Rebellion (Rochester, NY FanForce). It'll be the first Dragon*Con for all of us! Hopefully we'll get a chance to stop by the combined state FF table and say hello.
