    Ok so we've worked out the first at six. Anyone have a suggested location? I'm thinking any centrally located Tim Horton's or Starbucks, but I wanna hear from you guys.

    How's everyone feel about WEM foodcourt? Rides can be provided and we can meet in the smaller one by galaxyland. Just putting it out there, so please leave your 2 cents.

    Thanks for coming out guys. It was good to see you and dork out and for awhile. As for what we accomplished:

    We're going to get new literature for the table, including business cards, but keeping the same design as the latest ones, just updating the website info and putting a few new links on the website - I'll be doing some work on the website to update it and put pictures on it, and brochures with info about what we do, who we are and maybe a blurb about our history.

    We're also going to potentially share a table with Rebel Legion, if the tables are large enough, using just a small corner, because of the lack of display items for our group. Waiting to hear from Shane on this one.

    Forgoing a poster board and photos in general, because of the lack of recent photos and we don't want to include former members who don't post and/or participate in ff activities anymore. Hopefully for the next toy and comic show we'll have more recent pics with more members in them. :)

    Also going to see about t-shirts if we can order 5 or so (if enough people are going to show up to fill those shirts). The shirts will likely have our logo, our group name. We can decide on colours and such later on, hopefully not too late because it will take time to order, but I was thinking black with yellow font, because that's Star Wars-y and gender neutral. I'll work on getting a quote and it the rate is okay, then I'll see if people are willing to put in for them.

    So yeah, that's what happened for those of you who missed out. We're hoping to have another meeting on March 1st (a sunday), but otherwise we can continue to do planning on this thread.

    Jay, if I've forgotten anything let me know.

    Not right off hand.

    Yeah the RL table is more then willing to give you guys some space and maybe the 501's will too. There's this perception that the FF is a good guys only group which isn't true. there are the 501's who do bad guys, RL who do good guys and the ff and is the middle and does both and none. It's hang out or the neautral ground where you don't need costumes at all.

    Very cool, he's a really great down to earth guy. I'm hoping our local groups can get a picture with him. Maybe take him out for supper or such.

    I am looking forward to meeting him. Grievous is my favorite SW character, believe it or not.

    And it would be fun to take him out to dinner. Could we contact Shane about that?

    Already done. Unfortuneately Shane is taking him and the other Voulunteers out for supper. They do it every year, but I'm sure we can get Matt to pose for a group photo with us.
