    It seems as if FanForce is going to get a chance to present itself on the fanstage, a kind of "meet FanForce" presentation. I'm the one responsible for making this presentation, and I need your help.

    I have a general outline made, but I would like to hear from you what you would like to tell the world about fanforce, and why you think people should join. If you have short stories about FF events and photos that you would allow me to use you can post them here as well.

    Also as I said I'm responsible, but I think it would be good to have one or two other people up on the stage with me, it's boring to just hear the same person talk all the time. If you would be interested in doing this with me, please contact me via PM. If you want to be a presenter I would like you to be active both on the boards and in your local FF chapter, I definitely think it would be nice to have at least one person from FFUK present who can answer questions on what's happening within the UK. The presentation will of course be held in English.

    Oh, I'd say we need as many pictures of people in front of famous landmarks all over Europe (or the world) showing the FF as a real global community. And put real emphasize on that, the community bit, having fun with fellow SW-fans.

    I'll try to dig up some pics of the dutch FF meetings. :p And use the C4 pics, pod party FTW!

    I think we still need to keep it family friendly though. ;)

    Sounds great, but I will probably be too scared to go up on stage :p
    I'll try and think of some material you might like to use for the presentation, but hopefully there are a few FF-UK members that will be willing to appear on stage. That jamierichards ain't shy, and I think Tim Bolton may be up for it!
    Is there any indication as to hwat day the fan presentations will take place??

    They'll probably think it's Euro Disney and be less impressed. We'll have to see if we can find something that looks like California, like that fake Golden Gate Bridge that was in California Adventure. :p

    I'm never afraid to get on stage, but I'm not sure I'd have anything to contribute, really, other than my beautiful C4 photos. :p

    The time slots are as of now set for 11-12 on Friday, and then one on Sunday, that I can't remember right now but I think it was about the same time, or maybe an hour later.

    Is there anyone who would be willing to lend out their laptop for the presentations? I'm working on a powerpoint presentation, but don't have a laptop myself.

    I don't think images of the FF-Europe crowd at American attractions is the best local sell!

    Should try do images of known European attractions with folk at them - there's a good picture of some of the FF:UK North chapter at the Angel of the North for example.

    Halibut could bring a Penguin on stage with him too! :D

    Ven makes a very good point. UK and European-based pictures only, especially any taken place at any well-known and recognisable sites/attractions.

    well, I'm sure it would help attract people :p


    oh yeah, I've never been to Amsterdam (never farther than Venlo, in fact), so ... EFFM09 in Amsterdam, savvy?

    D'oh. Good point. Yeah, probably skip the C4 pictures. Besides, going to a con to show pictures of another con is rather lame, I suppose. :p

    Btw, does anyone have pics from the Paris EFFM meet? I have them for Stockholm and Berlin, but no previous ones.

    I think it would be really nice if there were more pictures of different FF events, and if someone has a nice group pic from the EFFM in Berlin I would be very grateful. I seem to only have small groups of people, and no really recognisable landmarks on my pics.

    Use the Disneyland pic (us in front of the castle) from C4. Most people will believe us when we say it's from Eurodisney anyways.

    Stockholm is the only one I've got pics of, too. I don't even have any from Berlin, really, let alone Paris - though I know there is a good group shot, because I used it in a little video I made back then. Don't think I have it, though...

    There are quite a lot of FF-UK meet photos in my account here - http://s107.photobucket.com/albums/m309/timbolton/ and also on this one - http://s106.photobucket.com/albums/m262/fanforceuk/

    I also have larger versions stored on my computer - will these be of use?

    As for being on stage, maybe. I think it would be great if the CRs and RSAs of Europe/UK could all be there for support. I am not an official representative in any capacity for FF-UK any more, no title or position. I just keep active in helping push the FF-UK further. Though I guess I have been as active as can be in keeping regional stuff going. I am just better in small groups and one on one circumstances, I am not at my best as a performer. Give me a few days to think about it.

    Thanks for the photos Tim, and it would be really great to have you on stage since you have taken part in so much with the FFUK. :)
