    Ok, so the story is Natasha and I were partying with FF members and the 501st at Shampoo last Saturday night. She was Padme and I was Leia...so anyway, apparently we made quite an impression. Now we're being told that we MUST GO TO DRAGONCON 2002 in Atlanta, GA!! We are considering this trip and will shortly be organizing flights and hotel accomodations.

    If you want to go or want more information, check out www.dragoncon.com. It's Friday, August 30 - Monday, September 2, 2002. Labor Day weekend.

    What's the cost for tickets for the event itself? I must have missed that on the page.. We might be able to make it, but i think I'd rather drive down. And my sister lives just outside of Georgia, so there's my hotel. LOL

    I think it's $60 for the entire weekend provided you purchase by 7/15/02.

    I reserved a room for Natasha and I in the overflow hotel - Days Inn - one block from the convention.

    We'll most likely be traveling with some of the 501st.

    Would love to see more of you there!

    My wife and I are planning to go but we need to stay in the main hotel. My wife has CFIDS and needs to be on site. If we can't arrange it we won't be going. I will know more soon.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    YAHOOOOO!! Our flight is booked, the hotel room arranged, the con tickets purchased. Now all I need to do is get my costume in prime shape.

    Are there any planned events for the Fan Force down there?

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Iycis and I got our plane tix this week. We're staying in the Days Inn a block away but that could change pending any cancellations at the Marriott in the next couple weeks.

    I know that the FF Chapter Hothlanta Rebels are planning a dinner for one night. It's a rather pricey one so we're just gonna go and hang out. Other than that I think we're gonna decide what we wanna do on a day by day basis. We're costuming most of the weekend. I'm putting the finishing touches on mine in the next week.

    So, who else is going? Frito-you still going? Tengu-what about you?

    Anyone else?

    Hey all! :)

    Jenni, I just wanted to say that it was great meeting you at the FanForce dinner my chapter hosted last Friday. I'm very glad you could come. I hope to see you again next year.

    For those of you who would like to see a group picture from the Dragon*Con dinner, go here.

    Once the Hothlanta Rebels webmistress gets back from a business trip, she'll post all of our pictures on our website, HothlantaRebels.com.

    I posted elsewhere on the KOP board, but it was really great getting to meet you and Natasha. Though I didn't get to hang out with you guys too long, it was fun while I did. Mrs. Darkrider & I had a blast meeting you both. Perhaps we can make a the journey up to your neck of the woods for a con sometime? Anything big coming up in the Philly area?
