    Dear GV JCers,
    Here is the official thread pertaining to our Fifth Activity as an official Vancouver FF Chapter: an [link=http://download.theforce.net/episode2/yodaman.avi]AOTC DVD[/link] Screening Party at my house. If you want to bring any of your friends and/or family, please feel free to do so, as my house is your house. ;)

    [hr]
    Here are the details:

    1. What: An [link=http://www.starwars.com/episode-ii/feature/20021008/index.html]AOTC DVD[/link] Screening Party. In addition, as I will be purchasing the LOTR: FOTR DVD on Tuesday too, we can definitely check out its extras also. Lastly, Sean will be bringing his GameCube, complete with games such as SW: Clone Wars and SW: Rogue Leader. Thus, it promises to be a most enjoyable afternoon. ;)

    2. When: From 02:00-05:00 PM on Saturday, November 16, 2002.

    3. Where: My house. If you?re interested in attending, send me a [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=706979]PM[/link].

    4. Price: No price. But I do recommend that all of those who attend, bring some snacks for everyone, as this will be a sort of ?pot-luck Activity.? ;) If you want to bring something in particular, please feel to post what you want to bring on this thread.

    5. Duration of the Activity: About three hours.

    6. Transportation: For our younger members, I am more than willing to provide transportation for you (a ride); I just need 48 hours advance notice, so that I can finalize my schedule and make the necessary arrangements beforehand.

    Here are some more assorted [link=http://www.starwars.com/episode-ii/news/2002/08/news20020801.html]AOTC DVD[/link] menus & screen-captures for everyone. Enjoy. ;)

    OMG! I just got home from Future Shop, where I purchased the AOTC and LOTR: FOTR DVDs! :D I so want to open them right now, as they?re right here and I?m right here. But I can?t. I must learn self-control. I must hold out till Saturday; who, amongst you, think I have the will-power to hold out till Saturday? Should we start taking bets? :confused: [face_laugh]

    Well...I've lost. :)

    I got the VHS version an hour ago (after hunting all across town to find a place that had it) and started watching it the second I got home. 8-}

    I don't think you can do it, Dan. :)

    Despite the temptation, I haven?t caved yet. I?ve managed to content myself by watching the TPM DVD for the 300th and 301st times. [face_laugh] Also, I watched the LOTR: FOTR DVD yesterday; it is awesome, especially the extra footage. ;)
    [hr]
    Lastly, I've got plenty of soft drinks and chips for everyone; so no need to bring those. But if you've already bought them, no worries. ;)

    Well...I was right about one thing, at least... ;)

    Dan, you know enough about me by now to know that patience is not one of my strong suits. If I were patient at all, I would've waited till Wendsday to pick it up at Zellers for a much cheaper price, and saved myself a trip. 8-}

    Hey Dan that was a good AOTC DVD party.
    Sorry I had to leave so early, but at least I watched it when I got home.

    [hl=floralwhite]5. The Post-Activity Report: An AOTC DVD Screening Party on 16/11/02.[/hl]

    On Saturday, Tipoca City held its Fifth Activity: an AOTC DVD Screening Party. The following GV JCers were in attendance:

    1. [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=652216]TIEPilot051999[/link].
    2. [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=706861]vaderdude_3[/link].
    3. [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=723507]Jedi_Ulic_Qel-Droma[/link].
    4. [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=706979]MASTER_OBI-DAN[/link].
    5. [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=347576]jade_angel[/link].

    And we also welcomed:

    6. Michael (Christine?s little brother).
    7. Colin (Christine?s friend).
    [hr]
    Personally, I really had a lot of fun on Saturday and I want to thank everyone for attending. In terms of highlights, Alex, Sean and I began the afternoon watching the deleted scenes from the AOTC DVD. Of all of them, my favourite deleted scene was the one which Rick McCallum described as having ?a lot of yearning? in it. [face_laugh] Also, we could not believe that Ben Burtt happened to inadvertently drop one of the biggest Ep. III spoilers during one of the intros: it was absolutely brutal, I can?t believe the LFL DVD Production Team missed it. :(

    Then, Antonio joined us. For those of you who haven?t met him yet, Antonio is, without a doubt, a great guy. He also brought along his laptop and some sweet SW memorabilia: most notably, the [link=http://www.masterreplicas.com/starwars/ProductsAnakinFXSaber.asp?sid=]Anakin Skywalker FX Lightsaber[/link]. This was very cool. :cool:

    [image=http://www.masterreplicas.com/starwars/images/prod_anakin_saber.jpg]

    Then Alex and Sean partook in some spirited duels in SW: Clone Wars. After which, Christine, Michael and Colin joined us. At this time, we watched AOTC in all its digital glory. All the while, we munched on snacks and drank soft drinks; big props to Sean for bringing donuts/cookies and Antonio for bringing some SunChips. Also, thank you to Sean and Christine for both bringing their GameCubes and respective games. ;)

    After AOTC, we finished the evening by playing a few more GameCube games. Highlights included watching Michael being chased by Alex in a duel in SW: Clone Wars and watching Michael repeatedly beat both Alex and Colin in Wrestlemania 8 with a chair, while they were both down on the mat in a "hardcore rules" match. [face_laugh]

    All in all, it turned about to be an absolutely fabulous afternoon and evening. Thank you to everyone for taking time out of their busy schedules to join us. ;)

    Sounds like you guys had fun! :)

    We're planning our DVD screening party for this coming Saturday, but we're still hammering out the location.

    Where is the Ep.III spoiler, so that we can avoid it? Some of our members really want to stay spoiler-free, and I'd like to respect that.

    The spoiler is in one of Ben Burtt?s remarks in the introduction to the Eighth Deleted Scene: Anakin and Padmé on Trial. ;)

    In terms of highlights, Alex, Sean and I began the afternoon watching the deleted scenes from the AOTC DVD.

    Yeah. I had seen them before (well, most of them, anyways...) and I think that the Jedi Analysis Room was my favourite.

    Also, we could not believe that Ben Burtt happened to inadvertently drop one of the biggest Ep. III spoilers during one of the intros: it was absolutely brutal, I can?t believe the LFL DVD Production Team missed it.

    Actually, I noticed that earlier in the AOTC forum. So, I knew it before the rest of you did. ;)

    Then, Antonio joined us. For those of you who haven?t met him yet, Antonio is, without a doubt, a great guy. He also brought along his laptop and some sweet SW memorabilia: most notably, the Anakin Skywalker FX Lightsaber. This was very cool.

    So...cool... :)

    Then Alex and Sean partook in some spirited duels in SW: Clone Wars.

    You forgot to mention the fact that it took us almost an hour to set the thing up... ;)

    After which, Christine, Michael and Colin joined us. At this time, we watched AOTC in all its digital glory. All the while, we munched on snacks and drank soft drinks; big props to Sean for bringing donuts/cookies and Antonio for bringing some SunChips. Also, thank you to Sean and Christine for both bringing their GameCubes and respective games.

    Yeah, that was the best part. I can't go back to watching Pan-And-Scan after seeing it in widescreen...

    Highlights included watching Michael being chased by Alex in a duel in SW: Clone Wars

    I had plenty of practice... ;)

    and watching Michael repeatedly beat both Alex and Colin in Wrestlemania 8 with a chair, while they were both down on the mat in a "hardcore rules" match.

    How is that funny, Dan? I sure didn't think it was. Then again, you weren't the one getting plastered. 8-}

    All in all, it turned about to be an absolutely fabulous afternoon and evening. Thank you to everyone for taking time out of their busy schedules to join us.

    Ya welcome. :)

    Derisa steals idea for VideoGaming Night...

    Glad it all went so well... so when are you going to go and play laser tag again? ;)

    Thanks for the warning on the spoiler. :) I'll have both ears open, but I do respect Dawn and the others who are going for spoiler-free for Episode III. It's good to know it's there. :)

    Take care, you crazy kids! :)
