    Wow how time flies!

    Thanks again Ghostface, and everyone that helped to make that day the memorable event that it was!

    Here's to doing it all again for the 30th next year ;)

    Evening, everybody!

    I can't believe it's almost a year since that glorious day! I don't know why, but I've been thinking about it lately - Then again, it proves that it was a day that gave us memories of a lifetime.

    Just out of curiosity, Kassy. Did you ever get around to making a DVD of all the footage you took on the day, and would I be able to get a copy of it - I'm sure the Midlands group, as well as myself would like to see it.

    I'll pitch in for any P&P, no problems there!

    Do you guys realise, it was around this time last year, we were all clambering for tickets to this puppy!?! My, how time flys! o_O

    Wow, I got all nostalgic today.

    I was the second guy in the cinema, that's pretty awesome. Remember arriving there at like 2am and watching the X-Wing being built.

    Remember starting random cheers for Yoda in ESB and Mace in TPM well after their first appearance.

    Hey Guys, long time no see/hear, hope all u guys are doing well.

    Yes, it's the time of year to be very nostalgic over Celebration day Star Wars Marathon.

    We were all lucky to go and I met some cool people and made some good friends.

    All praise to Ghostface for all his hard work behind the scenes.

    I'd like to hear from anyone who knows me and anyone who's a fan.

    Still got loads of digital pics and video to remind me.


    Are there any plans to commemorate the day.

    Now that sounds like a good idea! Of course the film started late, but who cares! It was for a good cause. :p

    Was quite tempted to return to the scene of the crime at LEICESTER SQUARE and take in a movie at THE EMPIRE

    Just think, this time last year most of us were staying in a hotel overnight in London, ready for The Marathon on the 16th, I can still see all the 501st in the bar at The Regent Palace Hotel, was really funny as there were loads of costumed Jedi with Force FX sabres.

    I don't think I got any sleep that night and Raj sent me a text about the arrival of The X-Wing at about 4am ish.

    Certainly was a cool day, wish we could do it all again.

    It's just turned midnight on the 16th, so this time last year, I believe I was watching Ricky Gervais on TV, trying to get some sleep, before catching the coach with Stuey in Birmingham at 3am.

    Ah, the memories!

    ::sighs::

    Happy first Birthday, ROTS!!! [face_dancing]

    Haha, I remember getting a coach from Birmingham to London as if it were yesterday. Never been to London before so we wandered around expecting never to find the Empire and found it ridiculously fast and were people who formed..The Line.

    No sleep for 48 hours and I still couldn't sleep on the way back. Jawsome.

    *hugs Galactic Passport/Ticket*

    They stuck the sticker in the ROTS bit upside down. Doh!

    Can anyone spare me a ticket or am I 365 days too late? :D

    What a magical day that was! A year seems to have gone by in a flash but the memories are still fresh.

    Cheers to everyone who was there! [face_peace]

    One year on, can't believe how fast the past year has gone! What an awesome day, it was like the tiredness didn't matter at all at the end:D
    Meeting the maker, being with 1300 SW fanatics, cheering, booing, going mental when Rick McCallum walked in, going even more mental when GL himself walked in.
    Happy Sithday one and all.

    Happy Anakinversary (terrible, terrible pun there, sorry) :p :D

    I wish I could have been there but stupid ticket phone service and ill planned selling date ruled me and my friend out, but this time last year I was standing outside the Odeon awaiting the arrival of the stars, getting cold and wet too but well worth it and a great day, even from the outside ;)

    Yah, what a cool day, this time last year we were in The Empire watching Return of The Jedi :)

    Ghostface where are you on The Anniversary, we need your comments, this is after all your thread!

    What do the rest of you think a year after THE DAY ?

    Chris Lyne where are you ?

    I might just do the same too :D

    A year on.....I still think the film is only alright but the hype and anticipation is always the best bit so my expectations were well met.

    And all indication would suggest that next year will be something to look forward to too.....especially around July time ;) :D [face_monkey]
