    There are 3 things we need to get squared away pretty soon.

    A CR needs to be selected very pronto. This person will be our go-to individual for promotions, direction, etc. Without this chair person, we'll all be wandering idgits. ;)

    Second, it is probably about time to get some ideas from folks on where they'd like to see the LAST STAR WARS MOVIE EVER! I, for one, would like to see it at the RAVE, but I am sure others can chime in with more places. Most importantly, it is where all the fans are. I'll probably have the most fun where everyone else is. So, that being said, we need to spread the word - get more members - and get the ball rollin'! :D

    LINE PARTY - All I gotta say is WOW! I had a WHOLE LOTTA FUN at the party in Nashville 3 years ago. I'll remember it for a long time to come. To make this one memorable, a lot of planning needs to go into the location and promotion of it. The ideas need to pile in, so let's hear what ya got! :D

    CR hmm well that's true we do need one, eh?

    As for the Rave 'hell yes!' hehehe let's do it there cuz when I went to the Trilogy (showing of all LotR movies back to back) that freakin' rocked!!

    Sad thing is... I don't expect a huge line though for Ep III :( AR juz seems like it doesn't do much for anything except college football... which is all right, but still kind'a sad. I remember Ep II wasn't many there and didn't require a 'stand in the line waiting bit' so kind'a sad.

    Though one thing :p I'm gonna be dressed up in costume for Ep III that's for bloody sure! hehehehe

    (all right.. I'll prob hate myself for doing this in the long run being a single mom and stuff... but if no CR is elected soon I'll step in... juz need to know what all I need to do though. I've been a SW nut ever since I saw 'A New Hope' in theaters back in '79 hehehe yeah yeah I was juz 4 but :p I still remember it...though vaguely hehehe)

    Howdy ya'll! I Agree with you Elan-Rai the RAVE is going to be the place to be for Episode III! As for everything else I trust in the wisdom of the Council. Decide and then I will follow. Other than that bring on the year of Star Wars!!!!! I also will be dressed up for Eps III. The Gray Jedi is on the way!! Later!!!

    Okay, looks like Nyborg13 and Kynstar are the only two interested in the job, er.. title of CR. ;)

    If no others are interested, I would suggest making a motion to vote for CR. We could use my PM to keep voting concealed and accurate. Whatever you guys want to do. :)

    Trust me, membership will grow once we get a CR elected. The CR will be responsible for promoting the group outside of TFN. That person will need to maybe advertise at comic-book shops, the movie theaters, movie-rental shops, etc; anywhere where the establishment will let you do it. We did that at my last FanForce and nearly quadrupled our membership right before the line-party. Again, these are just ideas, but they can and do work. :D

    BUT, one thing we must absolutely NOT forget is that this doesn't all rest on the CR's shoulders. We'll need to step up and stand behind him/her and do what needs to be done if we want us to grow and prosper. Example: If flyers need to be handed out, then we all need to jump in and help our where we can. Just some helpful advise. :)

    "BUT, one thing we must absolutely NOT forget is that this doesn't all rest on the CR's shoulders"

    Amen BROTHER! A CR does not a line party make. A Fan Force chapter does.

    I just thought I would drop in & say "HEY". Jay has been there & done that. He is a great guy & won't steer y'all wrong. Those of us who know him from his adventures in Nashville miss him. Strong with the Force he is.

    CONGRATS ON YOUR NEW FAN FORCE CHAPTER! =D= MTFBWY'ALL!!!

    As for which theater. If I am in town and not in Memphis I think RAVE is the best option. But I am planning on buying my tickets ahead of time. I will be there for lines for good seats.

    Does RAVE allow you to pre-order tickets?

    I say Rave also. And yes, you can pre order tickets there. So would this be the Midnight Showing, or what?

    It's probably too soon to know right now if they will. Most theaters don't know until a month before at best. I think it would be unfortunate not to, but you never know. If we get in good with the theater manager, we might find out that way.

    Yeah once the time gets closer somebody could prob get in touch to find out if they are gonna be doing a midnight showing or not. hehehe funny thing is... I've never been to a midnight showing of a movie before (opening night) I've only done opening day. So this be sweet if the Rave does it.

    Well, our family rang in the New Year with our relatives in Cabot. It was a blast! Not much happened over the New Year's holiday, but Christmas was quite interesting with our "unforgettable" trip through the arctic snow-ways on the 22nd of December. ;)

    Oh yeah.. the snow hehehe I drove to LR thru that mess on that Fri it was a mess indeed. Wouldn't have been all that bad if people would go more than 5-10 MPH :p My truck can't get traction on that crap unless it's 15+ MPH hehehe oh well. My pops taught me how to drive on the ice and snow (and no I ain't bragging... you can know how to drive on it and still get in the ditch hehehe)

    But these people slamming on their brakes... going so slow... well that doesn't help the other drivers a bit *snrk* hehe

    Glad to hear your Christmas went well :) We couldn't do anything until New Year's weekend... so our Christmas was combination of NY and Christmas.

    I feel bad... cuz I didn't stay up to watch the ball drop hehehe then again I had been up for over nearly 24 hrs gaming *snrk* (RPGing)

    Yeah, driving on that stuff was the worst decision I've made in a looooong time. :(

    As for RPGing, what type of games are you into? Some friends of mine and myself used to use the West End Games' Star Wars version years ago.

    I've got most of the SW d20 RPG books... but nobody to play with!! :_|

    hehehe we mainly do AD&D (2nd ed though I've played 1st and 3rd), Rifts, White Wolf, done a little Shadowrun, a speck of Modern d20, Battletech/Mechwarrior. Hmmm that's what I can think of right now.

    So as to this CR business... guess since Nyborg can't at the moment I'm the ticket then? Do let me know so I can attempt to learn/become it ;) hehehe

    Well, I suppose that's an option. I suggest though that we wait to get more people involved before we elect. It seems we've died off quite a bit since we became official. The only reason I suggest waiting is because since announcing the "who's interested" post, no one has really expressed who they desired as CR. But I do agree about getting this taken care of soon. I'd say we give it another few weeks to see if I hear from anyone wanting to run for CR, then we can go from there. Sound okay?

    Sounds good to me. I've been trying to spread the news on base meself ;) though (believe it or not) the few I've talked to are already associated through their own states' FanForce groups hehehe

    Soooo what RPG do you/or have done?

    Hey gang looks the land deal fell through for now so Ive talked it over with the family and Im back in for CR. No matter who gets it because the state is so spread out and still very new we will all have to work as one mainly with the CR just being the go to man/woman. Example : Hot Springs is far off for some folks so if Elan-Rai where CR then others like myself would do things around here but keep in contact with the CR to let them know what was going on and to try and work in a meeting or two for everyone.

    Whatever you guys want to do is fine with me. If you want to run the election now, that's cool. I just wonder what happened to everyone. I know we had around 2 others from Hot Springs, but they haven't logged in since November. I may just have to commit to LR "going-ons" until something happens here.

    BTW, I'll be in the LR area this weekend. I'll be visiting some relatives in Cabot, so if you guys plan anything I might be able to swing by. Just give me a heads up.

    Sorry to hear that your new home situation didn't work out, Henry. Glad to hear your back with us, though! Sorry I didn't get to hang with you over the break.

    Elan-Rai I was going to ask you what you where doing this weekend I was going to come over and meet with you and any other prospects you may have. What time will you be coming through N.L.R. and will you have time to kill before you get there or on the way home. The family and I are doing nothing this weekend so we are free anytime. We need to set up some way of getting intouch without the PC.
