    This is going to be an important event for our fanforce (probably THE most important this year) because I'm hoping to get some recruiting done to bring our numbers back up and welcome new members, and hopefully some of our current members will come out of the woodwork and show up for this thing (I already got Shanna to say she's coming - and I hope more can make it).

    So I think it's important we try to get on the same page with regards to what we're going to be doing there, who's going to be at our table, or at least help out at the table a bit so some people get a chance to walk around, buy stuff, etc. I was also wondering if it's possible to coordinate with the other groups, like the Rebel Legion and/or 501st, to know if they're getting a table for the weekend. Lastly I don't know how to get into contact with Shane or whoever runs the show now so I don't know how to reserve a table, so if Liann or Terry could give me a heads up how that's done I'd appreciate it :)

    Liann Pm'ed me the contact info. So I'm good there. I'll get in contact with Shane next week, but first and most obvious question: do we want a table? I do, I just want to make sure we're all on the same page.

    Ok if you got the info then your good berx.

    The Rebel Legion will have a table. Shane is just getting back to me with some details. I think the 501's will have a table as well.

    I think it would be nice for the ff to have a table amid the costume group tables. It all depends on what people want to put on it or such.

    I have a few more questions to I'd like to put to everyone, so would it be possible to get a meeting going before then? I can provide rides and we can meet in a central location like westmount or WEM, or wherever.

    So please post a date that's good for you within the next month.

    I'm free most weekends as well. Evenings on weekdays are harder due to work running long these days.

    As long as it's before 7 pm (Clone Wars are back on the 3rd or the 1st I believe)

    I've got two suggestions then: We can have a Clone Wars viewing some Sunday at the beginning of the month, or we can just do it on the 25th?

    I wouldn't mind an earlier afternoon meeting on a weekend day like Sunday, the Show is on the 29th of March so it's still some time

    Not sure if this is supposed to be made public right now or not, but I have a friend who is a major dealer of McFarlane stuff in Edmonton. He had a table for the toy show and he received an email saying the toy show had been moved to May 2nd.

    He said he'd keep me posted, so we'll see what happens.

    The Edmonton shows are as follows:

    - The Edmonton Collectible Toy & Comic Show Mar.29th (www.edtoyshow.com)

    - The Pop Culture Fair May.2nd (More details to come on this one as it's usually in April so this is the show that moved. www.popculturefair.com)

    Hope that helps.

    I would like to lock-down a date for a meeting soon. We're generally agreed a Sunday works best, so how does the 25th (this coming Sunday) or the 1st work for everyone?

    If not, then how about the 8th? I would like to have this early to give us some time to get prepared before this is upon us because it'll be here before we know it.

    Either of those dates works for me. How is everyone else with them?

    Ok, for now we'll say the 1st, but if another date works better for someone then speak up! I truly want to hear from everyone and anyone.

    Would later work or is his niece's party in the evening? I get off at 2 from a 48hour shift, so I'd like to head home and get a chance to shower. 5 or 6 would work if that's possible.
