    hi,
    This is the first time i've ever posted here, thought i'd say hi. My name is Kevin, I've kind of lurked in the shadows of the Chicago Force for the past couple of years, I always check the site out for new stuff and get you email updates. I met some of you at your room at Celebration 2, my son had a blast trying to knock the stormtrooper over with the dart. I bought my badges for Celebration 3 last night, really looking forward to it. I stood out in the rain in Denver for Celebration 1, glad it's in Indianapolis again. I live in the far north suburbs, about 15 minutes north of Gurnee on the Ill-wisc. border. Talk to you all again soon.

    Welcome! :)

    Be sure to check out the calendar of events above, and remember to not feed Le Peng and Jeff. They like to bite.

    Jeff lives far south. I've been there. I think it's near Mexico or something.

    I give my standard single finger salute to you all, except the new guy. Unless he makes some snide comment about my location....



    And before you pipe in, Penguin....screw you.

    I have to laugh whenever people complain about the distance to Jeff's house.

    From now on, all CF events will be at MY house. That'll teach ya.

    Why hello everyone...This is also my first time posting here. The Chicago region is closest to my hometown, Rockford. Anyone here live near there?

    Rockford...OUCH. That's a haul! But welcome aboard, it won't be all that much of a haul when there is a convention or major event going on.

    And hey, Schph doesn't live so far! :D

    Compared to Jeff's house, nothing is far.

    Chicago Force welcomes all fans within: (how many miles away are you Haz'?) miles from State & Madison. Though those who live more than a mile East of their are obligated to host at least one booze cruise per year on their houseboats (or underwater base, whichever is applicable).

    Oh, welcome to Chicago Force.

    Bosh

    For the record...I used to think that nowhere was too far....years ago I had been known to "hop in the car" and drive to places like Las Vegas and Cody Wyoming...just for the hell of it...

    That was when gas was around 35 cents a gallon (yes...I can remember when gasoline was 19 cents a gallon)....and the roads were wide open....



    now at $2.00 a gallon ....with 50 million more idiots on the road....I don't have such "warm fuzzy" feelings about driving anymore....I already spend far too much of my life behind the wheel....

    Oh....jeez....this is a welcome thread....
    oooopsss....

    :p

    the dirt hadn't formed yet....
    Creation of the Earth had not evolved far enough to include dirt...

    :D

    Hey everyone, My name is Scott Ruether. Moved here from the tundra of Grand Forks North Dakota. Been here since feb '03 and look forward to meeting up with some of ya. I live in Prospect Heights, IL (northwest burbs) Anyone else up in this area?

    Another question for you guys, is this your main communication mode, or do you have a chat room or something like that?

    Welcome Scott.

    No, unfortunately, Fan Force is where you'll get most of your daily contact with Chicago Force folks.

    However you can also go to www.chicagoforce.org and sign up for our spam-free newsletter. We also have our own message boards that are a little more laid back in the rules department there also (Click on: "CF Holonet" at the top.

    Fly Casual,
