    Hey all!

    This is going to be a joint Charlotte Fan Force/Carolina Garrison and possibly Klingon Attack Group and Rebel Legion event.

    Here are details so far:

    10:00 a.m. - board room will be open for costumed characters to suit up
    11:00 a.m. - All ages story time featuring the book "What is a Wookiee"

    After that we will have board games, video games, SW Trivia Pursuit and maybe even show one of the movies.

    I'd love to get as many folks involved as possible.

    More details to follow!

    EDIT: Title change.

    I also want to let everyone that I'm open to names for this event. It looks like we are going to also have the Klingons and other Sci-fi groups helping us.

    I'm upping this to remind folks that this is coming up.

    [link=http://h1.ripway.com/charlottefanforce/CharlotteFanForcePresents.doc]Here[/link] is a flyer for the event.

    One of the things I'm going to check out with the library is if we can get their glass display cases. If so we will be looking for collectibles to show case. Not just SW collectibles.

    I'll post a schedule soon. I'm meeting with TR8401 tomorrow and will talk with her about some ideas we are kicking around.

    I am still planning on being there.

    I haven't posted over here on the fanforce boards in a long time. Really weird that someone else has my TKID as their username lol.

    It's really easy to get to. Take I-85 towards Charlotte to the Beatties Ford Road exit and make a right at the end of the exit. The library is at the next light on your left. If you pass a HUGE white and gold church, you've gone to far. ;)

    Andy, thanks for uploading those. And to everyone else that attended, thanks, you helped to make this a great event. It was a bigger turnout than I expected. I am going to put a link to Andy's and my pictures in our Photographic History thread as well.

    We had a good time. THANKS to everyone. It was good to see a couple new faces as well. Just got done looking at the pics and was enjoying them! Hope to see you all again.[face_peace] Maybe by next time I will be strong enough to resist the tempting sway of becoming Vader's apprentice!
