    Hey everyone,

    I'm from Plainville, CT and have been a Star Wars fan since ROTJ first burst onto the screen. I have all the movies (including the ORIGINAL original trilogy, not the SE's) on DVD and a decent collection of stuff.

    Any other SW fans nearby? I wish some of these Star Wars conventions would come to CT but they never do. :(

    Hey! SW fan here, originally from CT but now in NY.

    If you want a SW convention, the easiest thing to do is probably to create one yourself, or band together with other people. If there isn't enough resources or interest for a SW only convention in CT, petition local annual Cons for a SW track, or volunteer to run one. If that seems like too much work, attend a con in Mass or NY.

    *looks at own suggestions* Hmm... :lightbulb face:

    I'm a CT fan, too, but I'm in RI for school. In November there is a big convention up in MA. It might be a bit far but it should be good fun. Check out the Boston or Providence boards for details, both groups are going. :)

    That convention would be the "Boston Super Megafest 2004" :)

    It would be cool to meet the our brothers in CT! We are planning a trip to the Boston con also, and if possible a dinner or get together.

    Any one going up and who'd be interested?

    November, you say? Hmm... *looks into it* Highly unlikely, but worth a glance.

    Hmm... suddenly more likely. Not to get too far OT, but is there much beyond memoribilia and celebrity signings, or is that pretty much the scope of the event?

    I would love to meet up with any other CT people up there if you'll be around. I'll probably be there on Saturday if I can go at all because my choir director always chooses to have our concerts on the same day that the fanforce goes to conventions. But as of right now, I'm going Saturday.

    Any of you do conventions regularly? What should I wear? I kind of want to go in costume if I have time to assemble one but I have a couple Star Wars t-shirts that might work. I have never been to a convention before.

    I've only ever been to a really small convention before, but just go in whatever you like, costume or otherwise. Remember to wear comfortable shoes, though!
