I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Shawn and I have just recently moved into Ventura County. When I saw this region on the Jedi Council Forums I thought that I ought to introduce myself to the other star Wars fans in this area. My primary interests in Star Wars focus around the EU novels and the Jedi (the pride and joy of my Star Wars collection is a custom built lightsaber hilt). I collect some of the action figures (only those characters that use the Force) and, like so many others, I've seen the movies more times than I could ever try to count. In my own experience it is rare that I come across another Star Wars fan and so I thought that this forum would be a great place to finally talk with others that share this interest. I hope to make a few new acquaintances through a galaxy far, far away and I hope that this message finds all those that read it feeling well.
