    Hello everybody, I've been dwelling here for awhile but i've just registered. Is anyone going to camp out for EP.3?

    I'm from the Okanagan, Summerland actually, tiny town in the middle of nowhere. I camped out for ep.2 and was first in line. (In Penticton...there aren't any movie theaters in Summerland, pathetic aye?) I'm hoping to camp in Vancouver for Ep.3. Are there any 501st legion members who live in BC?

    There was one 501st guy here in Victoria for a while, but the military shipped him out earlier this summer. He's hoping to be back here eventually, though.

    Welcome to the B.C. forum!

    I think it would be great if some of my fellow Victory Basers and I could make over to Tipoca City for the premiere. It would be a fun event for sure, but unfortunately trips on the ferry and accomodation don't grow on trees. :)

    Did you have any plans down yet, Jordain?

    Why would we need to go there, Vills? There were plenty in line here for the premiere of AOTC.

    They could always come here, of course... ;)

    Good point!

    Maybe we Basers should start a conspiracy to whisk away all these non-Islanders over here! :)

    Welcome to the boards, Jordain. I live in Kelowna. If we find one more person we can form a chapter, if you're interested.

    Summerland isn't that small. At least it's not Naramata! :)

    How was the water shortage? I'd trade that for a forest fire any day though.

    I camped for about 30 minutes for AOTC. It was only playing on one screen in all of Kelowna and the theatre wasn't even half full!

    I miss the big city. :(

    Actually I know of a former London FanForce member who is living in Kelowna...

    Not sure if we can get him to make an appearance though.

    I'm not sure where I'll be when EP 3 comes out....I might be in Quebec so perhaps I'll have to watch it in french and try to understand parts of it! It would be fun to see it in a big city like Vancouver or Calgary...hmmm

    It would be fun to start a group around here...I wonder where we would meet?

    I was in Montreal for the Imax theatre ATOC and it was in english, no subtitles or anything.

    I'm a SW fan from Penticton and I would be interested in a local FanForce.
    As for camping out for Ep III, I did camp out for 27.5 hrs for Ep I but only 9 hrs for II, so Ep III camp-out is a definite possibility. I just don't know where I'll be in 2005. I'll keep you posted.

    Greetins, all. From Kelowna British Columbia, thought I'd pop in, say a greeting. Normally I'm on the EP3 spoilers board. In all honesty, I didn't even know about this place!!! Any fans around the Okanagan going to camp out? I'd be up for it; heck, it's the last time - and I'm older now, so I can drink while waiting!!! Always wanted to sit in line for a day, get slowly inebriated, and then watch Yoda babble on in backspeak; make things kinda different. :)

    I was wondering if the other members from the Okanagan want to start our own board. I got a private message saying that we only needed 4 people. Anyone interested?
    :)

    Hey, Jordain! Good luck with that, a Okanagan FF would be cool!

    You might want to try starting a new thread with the word "Okanagan" somewhere in the title, that'll help get attention. You can post it here in the BC forum, in the Western Canada Forum, and in the Canada General forum, too.

    Also, just so you know, you only need three people (including yourself) to start a chapter. Four's better, of course, but the minimum is three.

    Best of luck!
