    Major Apology to Everyone

    Folks, I've been so wrapped up in trying to run the Shadow Sith Army that I really dropped the ball on this. :( I feel horrible and feel like I've let you all down.

    Please let me know if you want me to try to contact the Walmart at Cortaro and I-10.

    Again, I am extremely sorry.

    Alright, I heard back from Best Buy and they ARE NOT doing a midnight release. So far doesn't look like anyone is. So my question is, do we want to do a morning line u somewhere? Or just have a viewing party? My days off start that tuesday so my house is available.

    I am still calling around though.

    ALRIGHT!!!! I have a good friend who manages the GAMESTOP on Wetmore/Stone..next to WAL-MART. He just told me that GAMESTOP has special permission to release not only BATTLEFRONT II on Gamecube, PS2 and XBOX but also EP III on DVD, October 31st @ 9pm!!!!!! YES YOU CAN RESERVE THE MOVIE (EPIII) AT GAMESTOP!!! He also says, we are more than welcomed to be in costume while we come pick up our Game and DVD (Im gettin' mine..both) and take pics and what not!!! He also says there will be acostume contest, and is giving away 25 dollar GAMESTOP certificates, and 50% off coupons for games and systems!!!!!!

    So we have ALOT to do Halloween if we decide to do this!

    His name is Joe Ngo, and can be reached at 520 690-1966

    Ok everyone..the Curse of Lucas has hit...yet again. First they said they were gonna release EpIII at 9pm at GAMESTOP on the 31st, now they have retracted that. The Battlefront II game will be available still, but not the dvd. sorry guys. There is still gonna be a costume contest, and prizes and photo taking and such...sorry for that...guess we must wait till morning to get our DVDs. [face_frustrated]

    I must now commit sepu'ku

    definitely gamestop is a go.. from there ya'll can do a search mission for fun halloween haunt activities.. just remember you might have joiners from the costume contest.. just have lots of fun and enjoy the night safely. Maybe even wind up at someone's house for a viewing of the DVD.

    mugen.. see this thread
    and let me know if you think gamestop would be willing to set up a box for canned goods on halloween night. I can call them... but thinking you have a better relationship.. as I do not know them at all.
