    Ok guys...time for some ideas. Let's get this FanForce started. I'm open for any suggestions at this point. It might have to be held during a week night or Sunday night due to football games and competitions...so please keep that in mind.

    Can't wait to hear your ideas! :)

    We could meet at a Bookstore, near a Movie theater, that maybe still plays Episode 2? *I'm still holding out hope*

    Hmm...Sorry Wesmin, but I doubt there are any theaters around here that play AotC anymore :(

    Well...A bookstore might be a good idea, our a restaurant somewhere....

    Hmmm...both good ideas. I'm leaning more towards the bookstore or restaurant since AOTC went out of the only theater around here last week.

    So if it's a bookstore...would you want Borders out near the Berkshire Mall or Barnes and Noble near Target in Broadcasting Square...or others if you can think of any...

    As for restaurants...your choice...start naming some... :)

    Hmm...tough choice for bookstores... Well, the Central PA already met at Borders right? (I heard that somewhere)...So maybe we should go to B&N in Broadcasting Square... If it's a restaurant...it really doesn't matter to me.

    Nah...the Mid Rim never went to the Borders near us...it's too far away for them. They went to the one in Lancaster or State College(something like that)

    Anyway...B&N would be good...but don't you have any restaurants in mind? :)

    Ya, there is a boarders IN state college, I've seen it when I was up there at JCL convention... I don't know if I want to go this year because of prom though, though I don't think I'll enjoy prom as much as other people, It's just not my thing. You may thing I'm crazy but I enjoy a Bus or Band Room as a socail gathering area, or Mr. C's Office floor, nice carpeting :D

    Anyway, back on track, we should see where citizen tom is, and if there are any bookstores between here and there. How far away IS bucks anyway?

    I'm with ya, Wesmin! C's office is the place to be! And you can't beat the bus rides...especially when it's late at night and we're coming back from a competition all on a sugar high! You can't beat that!

    About Bucks...do you remember when we had the competition last year at Central Bucks West? If I remember correctly...it was about am hour drive on school buses...so I'm estimating about a 45-40 min. drive in a regular car.

    Hey, Wesmin!

    Well...I don't know about Crazed(he's more of a gamer and probably set us up and will never come back...that's how he is :p ) Anyway...I think I've narrowed the days we can go down to two. And those days are Tuesday and Thursday due to reasons that were already brought up. So...all I need from you guys is some suggestions...and then I guess we'll take a vote to see where we will end up. :)

    Yeah Wesmin7, I do think your crazy (in reply to your earlier post)...j/k, lol. Actually, I like both dances and bandie bus rides as social events (though noone cares to talk to me on the bandie bus rides anymore so i'm stuck alone listening to my cd player...so this year I think the dances will be much more social for me)...I also like the bandroom during lunch as my new hangout place but there I only hang out with (*gasp*) freshman! lol...hey, so what if i'm a senior that's friends with a bunch of the freshman :p

    Anyways...as I was gonna say...I never missed a dance since 8th grade (except, well, the Jr/Sr prom I didn't go to til last year but that's cus noone wanted to go w/me and I wasn't exactly a Jr or a Sr yet)...that's cool your planning to go to the prom this year though, Wesmin7. Your going too, right HanSolo29? I'm definatly going...last year it was awsome!

    Anyways, since that's completely off the subject, I think i'll now reply to the original topic...i'd love to have a meeting w/all of you, but I dunno if my parents would let me go...err, maybe I could get a ride though...just tell me when and where, lol. I love bookstores...lately I mostly go to Borders...I don't think i've ever been to B&N yet...but hey, i'm not about to turn down a bookstore visit, lol. Maybe B&N would have the next book in the one series i've been trying to find for the past few months (everyone's like sold out of it)...okay, as long as I can get a ride, i'm definatly in! lol.

    Well, there's my 2 cents...HanSolo29 and Wesmin7, you can each have 1 cent :p lol

    Ok, guys...I just got a new idea from the costuming forum. I was talking to Gothic Angel and she suggested about having a Halloween get-together where we each dress as a SW character. What do the rest of you guys think of this? Would you like having a Halloween bash for our first meeting?

    EDIT: I think the Halloween meeting would work out good. I just checked dates and we could do it on Tuesday Oct. 29 or Thursday Oct. 31. I'm leaning more toward the 31st.

    Hey, Crazed! I'm glad you didn't die! :p

    Anyway...the first meeting will not be held on a Wed. or a Fri. It will be held on a Thursday...which is Halloween. Check out the other thread for details! ;)
