    OAHU FANFORCE TO TEAM WITH REBEL LEGION HAWAII!

    The Oahu FanForce will be at Aina Haina Public Library on May 1st to promote Free Comic Book Day! Keeping in line with our desire to "Make a Difference" in the community, we will be joining forces with Rebel Legion Hawaii to encourage youngsters to read.

    Free Comic Book Day is held annually on the first Saturday in May.

    Pac-El,

    I tried clicking on the link to check out the article, but I think it's broken. It says that the page is unavailable.

    Kynn-Ji,

    Sorry about that! It seems the Advertiser already moved it to another hidden section. I've placed a copy of the article in another section as well.

    I hope this solves the issue.

    UPDATE:

    The 2010 Free Comic Book Day event was very well received. Tig West (as General Han Solo) and Jay Tee Erricck helped to give the children and other attendees a grand experience.

    I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the three others who helped out at the Free Comic Book Day event. Also, an extra special thank you goes out to Lauren Yamasaki of Aina Haina Public Library for allowing us to be a part of an event we will not soon forget.

    If anyone is interested in checking out what happened, please visit the Oahu FanForce website for more details.

    Forward with the Force,

    Looks like the event went well!

    I'm sorry I couldn't make it. Hopefully, I'll be at the next one.

    Do you know if the library has expressed interest for next year?

    Not a problem, Kynn-Ji. We did miss you though.

    The Librarian was genuinely happy. She did express an interest for next year's event. For me the reactions from the crowd made it all worthwhile.

    HI everyone just joined today and want to say Aloha and thanks for having me into your group. I live on Oahu and have been a fan of Star Wars for awhile. I do own a Boba Fett style comstume, close but need more details to work on to be dead on. I actually are making it into a Jodo Kast version of fett, which is yellow instead of read parts of his costume, a doppleganger. Well please feel free to message me anytime and if u want chat, ill give my number later to talk, cause i personally dont like typin much rather speak, thanks everyone. Mahaloz, Henry

    Welcome to the Oahu FanForce MrJangofett1! We do have another event coming up soon. The details are yet to come. Perhaps, if you're interested, you could bring along parts of your costume for show-and-tell?! It's great to have you aboard.
