    I am looking for people to share line duty for opening day tickets. I have no friends that this hard core about Star Wars. I want to be there to experience the excitement of openeing day, and not have to get spoiled by loud mouths who have seen it already. If anyone wants to hook up please PM me. I live here in Austin, and I don't have enough time off from work to stand in line for a week, but I am willing to share resonsibility with someone. Thanks,
    Kris

    My group will definitely be there...more than likely at Gateway like last time. You should come to a monthly meeting. We will probably start discussing the line info in the next few months.

    We talked about this at the last meeting. Right now we are undecided about if a line is nessasarry. We have no idea what the ticket situation is, if they are going to be sold ahead of time, online, etc. I would like to have a line because nessasarry or not, they are fun! :) What do the rest of you think we should do??? Everyone speak up!!!

    plans still look tentative, but I am aiming for definitely being in line no later than friday nite (May 10th). We camped for tickets and seats last year, but due to the uncertainty of how tickets will be handled this year, I am making preparations for at least the seats. They did start selling tickets at the door a week in advance last year. The release date is also on a Thursday (?!). All of this added up equals a whole lot of not-sure, so seats are my priority...

    I've got about 5-10 friends, and we'll team up with anybody interested. PM me or post a message here. I'm really unsure as to when tickets are going on sale, when we should start camping out, etc... Last time I remember there was a huge line in front of the Barton Creek cinema weeks before the movie came out.

    Anyway, anybody who wants to camp out lets figure out how we're going to do this so everybody can have a great time.

    As planned, my group will be at Gateway, again. Trace and I should be back from Celebration II around Monday or Tuesday of the week prior. We may immediately start camping out.

    i heard they're going to be selling tickets on Fandango. if so, what's the point of camping?
    btw, i live just up the street from Gateway, but i've got AP Tests from the week after CII (which means I can't go :( ) on until the end of school, so i'll be super busy.

    Regardless of what the ticket situation is, my camping group is there for seats. Line or no line, we will be there. Personally, like with LOTR, I refuse to be bumped out of a good seat due to some Harry Potter rugrats. Call me selfish or vindictive, I will have my choice of seats.

    But this is only the lesser of two reasons for the line. The Main reason for the line is that it's a blast. We rocked it out last time for Ep I, and we will rock it out again in May. If you can't stay the entire time, that's understandable. A lot of people still have to work or are committed on school projects, etc. This makes you no less a fan-boy. You're still invited to rock with us when you can.

    I don't know of any others in Austin. We are getting more calls from people from our last line. At this point I have no idea how many people to expect.

    Hey gang,
    This is Brian. I showed up at the last meeting for the first time and it was great to run into a few familar faces from the TPM Gateway line. I'd love to work with ya'll on another line this year. I just can't camp out during most of the business hours like I could last time. No paid vacations standing in line for tickets this time around. ;) Those of you who were there might remember me as the guy with the life-size Yoda.

    Anyhoo - see ya'll at Celebration and hopefully in the ticket line for AOTC as well.

    I can't figure out if I am going to go home to Houston, or if I will be in Austin. I live right by Gateway, so that is where I will go if I am here in Austin when the time comes in May. I would like to stand in line if time permits me, but I don't know how well that will turn out.
