    Star Wars "passing" is only in the realm of the passive fan who waits for fandom to happen. There are, on the other hand, ways to MAKE fandom happen.

    As I sit here right now, the Idaho Falls 501st is over at our Musuem which has been hosting huge display of NASA artifacts. They are in costume, taking pictures and signing autographs (I have to babysit else I would be there). We already have events lined up until the DVD release.
    SW is so engrained in pop culture that to a degree you can make your own STAR WARS whereever you happen to be. A Darth Vader suit IS Star Wars and carries the SW aura whereever you go with it. Fans crawl out of the woodwork just to shake your hand. Fandom is not going anywhere for those guys.

    Fandemonium was one place where one could make things happen rather than watch them happen, and it is preposterous to think that a town of 250,000 cannot find such opportunities all the time if we here in Idaho Falls can.

    Buy your own stormtooper suit, and make SW happen whereever you go.

    Fandom is forever... As long as we fight to keep it alive and make it better. But its not a one time effort, its a life time of effort, the rewards for the effort however are great and wonderful. To bring hope to a bleak existance, to bring a smile to a childs eyes, to stir the imagenations of old, to do the things others only dream of. That is living Fandom!

    Just a simple story of Fandom in Boise at The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Movie opening this year a bunch of the Fandemonium crew were there, we all had towels and some of us went in costume as Ford Prefect & Arthur Dent. We held a trivia contest in front of the theatre and one of our crew stayed up all night and made Babel Fish based on the design used in the Hitchhiker's TV Serise from back in the 80's. He carved the pattern in yellow craft sheet foam and stamped them w/ our URL. We then handed them out with the statement that "You'll need a babel fish to understand the movie". We just figgured people would stick them over there ear like a pencil or put them in there pocket, instead when the movie began there sat 30+ people we had never met before with Babel Fish sticking out of there ears. It was truly awe inspiring.

    Fandom can start with the small spark of an idea and spread like a wildfire if we merely keep faning the fires of the imagenation. Never give up never surrender, that was Fandemonium's motto in 2005... And I meant it. There is no surrender there is no time that its ok to give up. You fight for what you love and belive in until the very end of your existance. Sometimes what you fight for changes, sometimes how you fight changes, but you never stop fighting for the dreams you belive in.

    Make Fandom happen each and every day!

    http://newboiseorder.tripod.com/raffel2nd.doc this is not official till i have all paying members give me a yes we should do this or a no.

    I have donated all the prizes except for the 1 year paid membership to the New Boise Order that would have to be voted aproved.

    but i think this would be a good way for the club to maybe make some extra funds. to help the club out please vote.

    Since the meeting we never did get to do the fandemonium part.

    I am asking that

    Eric, Kasey, Katy, Josh please vote my Vote is Yes.

    I would ask for the other members to vote but votes only count from paying members if anyone else would like to give thier opinions on this please do so.

    I will run this vote for a couple days to make sure everyone has had a chance to read it.

    this is the only fair thing i can think of.

    Since i do not know when we all be at the same place again before fandemonium.

    what does everyone think of this.

    Every other hour or every hour since i will have my xbox there we play Trivial Pursuit Questions for a chance at free tickets. by random grabbing 2-3 people and asking a question and first one to answer correctly gets a ticket for a chance to win.


    I think this will help get people to be by our booth all the time. and might even increase sales. just a thought please tell me yours.

    Fandemonium Was Great and I will be there again Next Year.

    Cosplay from Ichidan was a big hit. (Was cool to be asked to sign autographs from the play.) Yes i have a membership form filled out and a member who lives near melba said should have a car hopefully by 3 months and can not wait to hang out with us.

    Also CH2 news came and he talked more about us. We do owe Boreneo a huge thank you and to let him know how improtant he is to us as well.

    Even though I was only there for a few hours, it was a good time. Saw some really freaky stuff (i.e. the guy on leash...what was that?). Anyway Ron, I think we should do something nice for Borneo as well.

    Guy on a leash... yeah, that sounds like fandemonium.

    Thanks for all your dedication Ron, I truly appreciate it, as I"m sure do all of the other members.

    Who all from our club attended?

    Dan, did your diorama get lots of attention?

    We are definately doing something for Borneo, but lets keep that on the down low since I know he checks these boards.

    Can't wait to see the pics/videos.
