    Here's an update on what's going on around the globe with different FanForce chapters. Be inspired by all the fun that's taking place!

    Comic-Con International is coming up soon in San Diego. Be sure to swing by the Fan Force booth upstairs if you're going!

    Reading PA is talking again! A noob walked in looking for someone to talk to and made a friend. We're hoping they continue discussions and revive the chapter.

    Buffalo, NY
    1. Participated in the Camp Good Days & Special Times Annual Gala June 20. Costumed characters posed for pictures and added to the "A New Hope" theme for the evening. Camoers were treated to goodie bags from the characters. Members of Garrison Excelsior were on hand to help as well.


    2. North Ridge members also participated in the Buffalo Bisons 2nd Annual Star Wars Night at the Ballpark. Members signed autographs, posed for pictures, and participated in on-field promotions during the game. Darth Vader announced the starting lineups and lead the ballpark in signing Take Me Out to the Ballgame. Once again, members of Garrison Excelior were on hand as well as Garrison Carida.

    3. The North Ridge held a meeting June 27 to greet new members. Ten new members were introduced to the group and welcomed with a special raffle. Go kart racing followed the meeting with Bobachris12 edging StoyBoy720 bu the slimest of margins.

    Pittsburgh continues to discuss Star Wars and get together for fun.

    Binghamton, NY is working on a new website to promote the group and has several events planned for the summer.
    Des Moines is have a BBQ on the 3rd at Hothie's and my house. We're planning on miniatures, Wii, and probably watching Star Wars.

    *********************

    FanForce Updates like this have been posted in the FanForce Communications forum during the spring. Since few read those I've taken it to posting it all over the Europe region. As you see information about Europe is severly lacking. Have you had a meeting, have you had a particularly great/funny/memorable discussion, or do you just want to make people aware of what's going on in your forum. Please tell me and I'm going to make sure that it gets mentioned in the updates.

    MsLanna, the chapter wrap of the German Fan Force General, is visiting my husband DarthUncle and me this very weekend in the beautiful Hanse city of Deventer.

    I will post photos of our meeting tomorrow evening.

    I also will check out my calender to see how many meetings DU & I had with earlybird, a gorgeous Dutch fanart artist & fanfic writer this year. We also need more meetings in order to plan stuff for the Jedi Con 2010 in Düsseldorf.

    We also meet Tyrannus230 from the US three times since October last year. Two times he came to Eindhoven and one time he traveled through County Lower Saxony in Germany with us.

    Oh and there were also more Dutch-German meetings this year with Cem-Fel, Ben_Stormrider, Chilla and me.

    Does that count, dear Obi Anne?

    What if my husband DarthUncle and I would manage at least three meetings per year with earlybird-Obi-Wan?

    And also at least three meetings per year with Tyrannus230?

    Oh and also at least three meetings with members of the German Fan Force General?

    Would that gain the benelux the fanforce status back?

    [face_batting]

    Oh by the way, I was so hungry when I started this thread, that I called poor MsLanna a chapter wrap. Cough, cough. She is of course a chapter rep or CR.

    [face_blush]

    But she did laugh a bit when she did notice my mistake...

    Okay, here the meetings from October 2008 until now:

    13th until 14th October 2008
