    We had talked at the meeting about fan conventions, and possibly attending a few. I was wondering when the next convention was? Ithorian had mentioned something about pittsburgh cons, and I would love to go to something like that...while im waiting for celebration 3, of course. ;)

    OK, guys, here's the lowdown on the Pittsburgh Comicon:

    It will be on April 25-27. More info can be seen here:

    http://www.pittsburghcomicon.com

    Right now, it looks like the "Femmes of the Force" will be there, which includes:

    Amy Allen (Aayla Secura)
    Femi Taylor (Oola, Jabba's slave girl dancer)
    Nalini Krishan (Barris Offee)

    Of course, guests come and go as the convention gets closer, so just keep watching the website to see who's next.

    Greetings Mountaineer Fan Force guy's,

    How are things going with your group? Great I hope. Is there enough snow out there for you? I just drove 5 hours to home (Hoth - aka Johnstown, PA) from my fiance's in Morgantown. It usually takes less than 2.

    Anywhoo, I just wanted to let you all know about a discussion going on at the S.W.A.P.(Pittsburgh Fan force) message board about the Pittsburgh Comic Con in April.

    Topic: What Is There To Do In Pittsburgh?

    I hope you guy's will be able to make it. The more Star Wars fans that come the better!

    The promoter already said they would be more than happy to get more and bigger Star Wars Actors next year and in future years if there is a big enough Star Wars turnout/demand for it. They will cater to whatever the attendees want.

    We have the power to turn this into one of the bigger Star Wars cons out there!

    Well, take care and hope to see you all in April!

    Well, what do you say, guys? Are you up for going to the con? If so, we need to make arrangements for rooms and stuff pretty soon.

    Well, being the only chick, I don't think my hubby would be too thrilled with me staying in a hotel room with a bunch of guys... :( Maybe I shouldn't go....

    Hubby won't go. I know better than to even ask. He's rather...er....."antisocial"...

    Anyway, it all depends on where you guys wanna stay and how much it costs and so forth.

    We're actually having our NE regional dinner/meeting at the pittsburgh comicon. If you would like more information on the fanforce activities for that convention please read more here: regional meet

    It would be great to have all the chapters represented there. ;)
