(This is being posted here as well, as although I wrote this with Canada in mind, there is nothing here that doesn't apply to anywhere else on the planet.) This is a call for the creation of more FanForce chapters. Part of the problem is, although there is interest in several areas of the world to form a chapter, there just aren't quite enough people to meet the requirements. The upcoming release of Episode II will present us with an opportunity to rectify this. What we need to do is for everyone who is interested to start a FanForce chapter in their city or region to get active during the release of Episode II. Talk to the local big cinema, the place most likely to gather the Star Wars fans for opening night. Ask them if its OK to put up a sign up sheet. Get the names and contact information of people interested in starting a local Star Wars fan club. Chances are if there is a line-up for Episode II, most of those people will be big enough Star Wars fans to sign up. Make one of aspects of membership is that they sign up for the FanForce message boards. I'm sure most regions should be able to easily meet the minimum membership numbers (which is 3 by the way), once the region has 3 events/meetings advertised on FanForce.net we will have another official FanForce chapter! This is the best opportunity we have to increase the membership and chapter numbers, lets not waste it.
