    The San Diego Star Wars Society (SD's chapter of FanForce) would like to invite The LA, OC, Ventura, and IE Chapters to join us for a Star Wars movie marathon on April 5th!!! This is the SDSWS' second such film event... we had so much fun at the first one that we decided to do it again and invite others to participate!! We will be watching episodes 4,5,6,1,2 and various fanfilms.

    The event begins at 11am in Poway, CA (45 minutes north of San Diego) and is being hosted at the Contempo Design Center, which has an amazing mini theatre inside on its 2nd floor. The building is quite large and many of the chairs recline; we will be seeing the three films on a 10ft screen with surround sound. The way the room will be set up is that people are free to come and go during the movies. In a room behind where the movies will be playing are some pool tables, and other tables where people can sit and eat. Downstairs is a full kitchen. Upstairs where the movies will be playing we will have snacks and drinks as well. The room will handle 50 people comfortably.

    Everyone is welcome to wear costumes, bring lightsabers or other props, wear Star Wars T-Shirts etc. Show and tell at SW fan events is always encouraged! I know of at least one complete sewn Jedi costume that will be for sale at the event, just fyi.
    Also, SDSWS will be showing off the artifacts of Jabba's Sail Barge that we collected on our recent trip to the Dune Sea of Tatooine (Imperial Desert near Yuma where scenes from ROTJ was filmed.) There may also be a special preview showing of the SDSWS fanfilm currently in production, "Shadows in the Sand"!!!

    The directions to the event are:

    Contempo Design
    12302 Kerran Street
    Poway, CA 92064

    - Take 15 Freeway.
    - Take the Scripps Poway Parkway Exit off of the 15 freeway and head East
    - Go East about 4-5 miles until you reach Kirkham (One light past Pomerado
    Road)
    - Turn Left on Kirkham, take the next left on Kerran
    - Drive to the end of Kerran Street, we are in the Contempo Design Building
    on the right.

    For more information you can contact Mara_Jade_Fan, the Supreme Chancellor of the SDSWS, or JediG60racer, the Vice Chancellor, or go lurk on the San Diego forum!!!!
    See you all there! BYOL! and MTFBWYA!

    Forgot to mention, food will be a major part of this, since it's going to be at least a 10 hour long event! Potluck is the word. There are people bringing home-made COOKIES, cupcakes, baklava, did I mention COOKIES?, and there will probably be lots and lots of pizza to go around. If you can bring something edible to share, that would be cool! If not, no worries... there will be plenty!

    Wow. That sounds like a lot of fun.

    It's pretty far away, but I may be able to go, depending on what's going on for me that weekend.

    Not too far, considering I used to commute to UCSB from San Diego several days a week. Ventura is only a 3 hour drive. Figure a 10+ hour film festival with 50 other Star Wars fans might be worth a trip?

    Oh, very much so, and I'm not at all opposed to it. It's finding a ride that's my problem. :)

    That, and I don't know what I have going on that weekend. I may be out of town, or very busy. I'll know in a few days.

    Well, most likely I will be able to go. So Garrett, if you can go and you need a ride, I will be more than happy to take you.

    Dammit, why'd they have to hold this on the 5th? It would be so much fun, and we could carpool and everything. But I'm already in trouble because I promised to go to an SCA event that weekend, before I realized that there's a choir performance I'm supposed to be at on Saturday. Yech.

    Somebody really, really needs to invent a Star Trek-style instantaneous transport device. Here it is, 21st century and everything, but no rocket cars, no colony on the moon, none of the things we were promised to have by now. Hmph.

    Yes Matt, you do suck.

    Réka, I'm sure it won't be too long until we have those things. :)
