    Calling all MidSouth FanForce members!

    This August 24-25, at the Plano Convention Center, C2 Ventures will be hosting a Sci-Fi/Retro TV Expo...

    Though Carrie Fisher has had to back out of appearing at this show :_| DFW FanForce will be manning a table in the dealers' hall, where you will be able to find all sorts of deals on STAR WARS and other collectibles.

    We are currently working on planning other activities for that weekend in conjunction with neighboring FanForce groups who will be joining us for the show, like dinner and/or a movie outing Saturday night, etc.

    Please feel free to post any ideas you have for activities.

    More info to follow! :D

    Houston will be there. How many of us, I do not know. I'd love a chance to get to meet some of the other TX CRs while I'm up there!

    Does everyone want to go to dinner or something like that Saturday night?

    If enough of us want to go we should be able to find a private room somewhere.

    A smashing idea, Amidala Starkiller. I was going to suggest the same. I have no idea right now who from the HFF is coming, but we'll have some people for sure. I'd love to meet all the city reps.

    Carrie Fisher has postponed her appearance until October 12-13 It is not updated on the main page but if you go to the show updates section of the forum, Ben Stevens has post about it.

    Without Fisher, I don't know that I will be able to get many people from Houston to come, but as of now, I am still planning on coming, so if any other CRs are going to be there, I'd like to meet you.

    Carrie may be in Dallas for the show in October.

    For those of you still planning on coming up in August for this show, let me know if you want to have a dinner or get-together Saturday or Sunday and we'll get it set up!

    The show goes until 6:00 p.m. Saturday and 4:00 p.m. Sunday, so if anyone wants to get together for dinner/sightseeing afterwards, post here and we'll set something up :)

    Also, we're having our DFWFF monthly meeting at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, if anyone wants to stop by and meet the main DFW group, that'd be a good time for it :cool:

    Hope to see everyone this weekend.

    As it stands now, we'll be going to a nearby Dave&Buster's after our meeting (around 5:00 p.m.) for whoever wants to join us for food, fun, and video games! :D

    Also, AOTC may still be playing on the DLP this weekend too, so you can bet I'll be there this weekend too :cool:

    A few Austin members are going, but they all have their own plans and timeline. So, we will not be showing our Force this time. Maybe next time!
