Hello Everyone! This is Bryan (I came to the meeting after Star Wars night) and have been following the group since the Empire Strikes for Bucks bowling event. First off, I am a huge Star Wars fan ever since I was introduced by my dad as a kid watching A New Hope on VHS! I guess you could say I am more of a fan of the original trilogy but I have been getting more into the prequels and expanded universe. I love that I have found a group who shares my passion and also enjoys helping people at the same time! From what I can see already, the North Ridge is an awesome group and I am really honored to have found you and be welcomed into your group. A little about me-- I am fairly new to Buffalo, I moved here from California in last November (just in time for your lovely winter!) and work for Moog in East Aurora as an Electrical Engineer. I enjoy being active, exploring the city and doing things like biking, running, canoeing and camping. I also enjoy playing music, audio and sound in general, art/design, building and fixing things, and watching and discussing films. As for costume ideas, I originally thought Chewbacca (one of my favorite characters) or maybe Jango but I am not sure. What I can contribute to the group: I enjoy graphic design and could help with flyers / t-shirts , I am energetic and can participate events after mid-August as a non-costumed guy before I get my costume sorted out. p.s. does anybody still play the star wars customizable card game by Decipher? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Wars_Customizable_Card_Game) I've still got some cards and would love to find someone else who wants to play or wants to learn!
