    I'm excited...count me in. I'll be there in costume. I'd love to learn some more about the 501st if any of them are considering bringing their costumes too... (hint hint ^_^)

    Slave Leia...thanks for organizing all this! It will be great to see everyone again.

    An idea, does anyone have an X box they can transport? I have several star wars games that everyone should be able to enjoy. Republic commando, Lego Star Wars, Episode 3, and both KOTOR games.

    This sounds awesome. We in the 501st really appreciate the hospitality. The wife will most likely be working that night but I'll see if my Mother-in-Law can watch the chitlins.

    On that note, If I can make it, I'll bring my full Sandtrooper costume. Anyone who wishes is welcome to try it on. (BYOT - bring your own tights - hehe)

    Awesome! We have approximately 15 confirmed and 15 "I'm interested". If you're an "interested", please confirm one way or another as soon as you can - we need to plan for food and seating. A list of all confirmed will be going out next week. This should be a great to-do.

    Thanks to everyone for volunteering to bring stuff - all games, x-boxes, costumes, etc. welcome (and may be needed if the Gungan-like weather keeps up).

    If Liann comes, she's bringin' me with her! I could certainly bring Fett and maybe a couple of others if anyone wants to have a look at how they are constructed.

    Liann is the Padme costume Queen around here. I'm sure she could be persuaded to bring some of hers too!

    Cool - I love Padme costumes :)

    I've also been scouting hardware stores for lightsaber bits - if anyone wants to compare notes on hilt construction, that would be much appreciated.

    Wow. This sounds like it's getting to be more than just a casual "get together" - it's an all-out event! :)

    That's exciting... so, just to recap; at this meeting, we can expect

    - costuming
    - sabre building
    - book and collectibles swapping, etc...
    - gaming
    - food
    - fun

    Bring your cameras, people This will be tons of fun!

    We should almost come up with a name for this event... How about "Galactic Truce Fest 2005"?

    Heh. Corny, but if y'all have something better, by all means, post away!

    I'd like to come, so yes for now, in case something else comes up. I'll bring what I've pieced together for my costume so far. Is this, like, at someone's house?

    It wouldnt be a BBQ without you Lexi ;) The invite was extended to all FanForce and 501 members in Calgary, with several people coming down from the Big E.

    Just let Sithatheart know that you are coming so she can nail down the food/drink requirements.

    It should be a big blast.

    My wife and I are definates. She gave up going to her 10 year college reunion so I could come. I hope to be bringing lots of stuff for the swap meet too. Just a bit of a heads up to anyone who may be interested, I have 5 yards of extra fabric that IMHO will make an awesome Jedi costume. Awesome.
