    Welcome to FanForce SamZimmerman! Sounds like you're in Portland, Maine going to school at USM.
    That would be quite the hike to get to Pittsburgh, PA!

    Eh. Any excuse to take a trip. Besides, Kurt Angle's hometown AND a con. I need no further reason. :)

    Edit to add: Can you guess my blood type, weight, favorite color or finishing move, too? :)

    Nope, not that good...
    Can only guess what you've already posted (and I've happened to read).

    Don't forget in 2007 there will probably also be a Celebration IV trip to plan for.

    I have been asked if I would consider adding a fanffic award to the list. I dont have a problem adding this if any chapter thinks they have one they will submit before the April 6th deadline, I will add it. the fanfice must be posted online somewhere for me to link it for everyone to read and vote upon.

    LEt me know ASAP if someone has one to submit since I will have to add this to the engraving order soon :)

    Thanks :)

    was there another deadline for the other awards?

    The deadline for everything is the 6th. this is because it only gives the RSA's one week to review the region and visit websites etc. The RSA's use those to vote on. we take all nominations into consideration. no worries.

    Keep in mind that your chapters are watched all year round and even though all nominations arent in.... every chapter is considered in the review process. The nominations everyone sends in help with that process. ;)

    I hope that clears things up.

    You will post the nominees and winners after the event, right strawbary?

    LOL the same proceedure will apply as last time.... the nominees are actually put in the awards program you are handed that evening as you walk in the door. ;) After careful consideration the nominees are narrowed down to the final 3 or 4.

    Keep in mind... for example best website..... the entire ne region who has a website...are nominees. LOL so... u just cant list them all.. they have to be narrowed down.


    The awards nominees/winners were anounced in this forum last time after the event I will dig up the thread for you.

    We also have a website now that will give more up to date info. This site will be used all year round for news on where the next one will be held as well as winner info and event highlights.

    I will post the link as soon as I get the green light from our webmaster its okies for viewing :)

    I had assumed when the sticky post stated "All nominees will be announced on April 7th." that we would see a listing of nominees on or shortly after that date.

    In my opinion, there would be the potential for more people to decide to attend the awards ceremony if they knew their chapter had the potential for winning an award.

    Yes that can work in the opposite way as well. For all those who werent nominated, wouldnt go either ;)

    I will repeat myself one more time and say ALL the RSA's vote on the region and narrow it down to the final 3 or 4 nominees. This process is currently underway.

    Again, consider all chapters in the NE a nominee at this point. we take into consideration all nominations sent in. The reason attached to those nominations are all taken into consideration during the voting process.

    I know everyone is excited however everyone must let the process run its course. [face_peace]

    I am excited too believe me. :D

    Remember, this was started so that chapters from all over the NE could meet and have a more community feel in the region. So the incentive for chapters to attend would be... FUN !!!

    Now I hate to run off however, I have a million things to do before the awards. I look forward to seeing everyone there. [:D]

    I will post updates if any as I get them

    Later taters!!! :cool:

    thanks Chris...... its really tough to put on a show that elaborate with only about 15 minutes of sound check and rehearsing with people who are from all over the country LOL

    so considering that ...I think it went well.. :)

    I think though Marie offered to have it at her house awards / BBQ so ... hmmm may go there providing Gary wheres his kilt.... ;) Just kidding marie - we wont invade your house however gary still has to where his kilt. perhaps we should have the kilt brigade attend the next awards?

    These awards are intended to bring the region closer together and to have fun. I hope everyone had just that... fun!!!!


    I look forward to seeing everyone again at the next awards not to mention see some new faces there as well!

    Congrats to ALL the nominees and winners!!!


    A very very special thanks to everyone who particiapted in the planning and ehtertainment for this. the awards wouldnt have worked without you. :)

    I cant forget to thank Itorian and Darth raptor for their wonderful entertainment during the improv and live performances from Ithorian. I have a few on video I will try to upload to the website. :)

    there are just so many people involved and so many to thank. Just know that you guys all rock and its not at all possible without everyone working together.

    and one more note on the awards..... KILTS ARE HOT!!!![face_love]
