    The next meeting for Knoxville FanForce will be Friday February the 20th at 7:00pm. As is the usual custom, we will meet at Mr. Gatti's on Kingston Pike. As always, if anyone needs directions or has any questions feel free to post here or PM or email me.

    See you there!

    We were in the Keys... I am burned to a crisp! Sorry I didn't make it, I will probably be able to go next month.

    Unfortunately I didn't make it to the meeting either. I went to a little get together some co-workers had that night and forgot about the meeting entirely. I apologize for that, but now I'm in a real jam.

    I have changed positions at my job. I am now working 10:30-7:30pm and have Sundays and Tuesdays off. Unless I moved the Meetings to Tuesday I couldn't make it out to Mr. Gatti's until about 8:15 and with Mr. Gatti's closing at 9:00 that wouldn't make much sense. This situation is about to get even more interesting when my new department moves to weekends off for everyone. When that happens, I have no clue what to do.

    Anyway, that's my dilemma. I could schedule this month's meeting for Friday as usual or something else, I'll leave that up to you guys. If I don't hear anything on it one way or the other by the 10th (next Wednesday) I'll just schedule it for the 19th (Friday the Friday after next) at 7:00 per the usual meeting schedule.

    I'll be taking long weekends shooting American Scary out-of-town the next few weekends in a row, so a Tuesday night actually works better for me...

    Yeah, let's do the 19th because my work situation is just getting too complicated for words and it looks like Friday is about all that's going to work. This whole situation is starting to wear on my nerves but that is a different story .

    Let's just go for the 19th at 7:00.

    Whew. Fanforce has really slowed down eh? Sorry I haven't been about, changing jobs, life, it goes on, all that jazz. I have a feeling things won't really pick up till next year as it will be movie year. (woo hoo!)

    Most of the folks from 2002 took off in 2003. There's no way to know exactly what happened, but that's just part of it. All I know is I still have FanForce meetings and I still enjoy myself and folks are still coming. Why don't you swing by this Friday if you can? We won't bite, I swear! ;)

    Hey, long time FanForce lurker here. I moved to Knox middle of last year (all my family is here, just grew up somewhere else) and have started school at pellissip. Aaaanyway, I've been wanting to get more envolved in my Star Wars fandom, and my anticipation and determination to go to Celebration3 has pushed me too. My point being I'd like to meet up at the next meeting, if that's cool. Even if it's just a few ppl, I know I'd really enjoy it. Same place as listed for the feb. meeting above?

    I wanted to say the same thing too. We had a good meeting on Friday and I just wanted to thank everyone for coming (if I didn't already at the meeting). As always, if you guys want to meet at different places or have any suggestions or ideas to make things better, let me know.

    I will go ahead and announce now that the next meeting will be Friday April 9th at Mr. Gatti's again. I am going to make a thread for it later but I just thought I'd left folks know here too. The reason for making it early in the month instead of more like a month apart is I know my schedule won't change up until then. After that, my schedule is likely to change and I may not be able to make the meeting I scheduled.

    On a different note, irregardless of how crazy my work schedule is or will be I don't really have an excuse to be so neglectful on the boards. I will get better about that and I am also going to update the old FanForce flyers and re-distribute them once I know what my work schedule will consistently be. If I know what my schedule will be by the next meeting then I'll post it up and make some flyers for it.

    Anyway, that's about it for now. I'll put a meeting thread up later today.
