    Well, i live in the suburbs of Chicago, not the actual city. If you know the town, i live in Rolling Meadows. So, what town are YOU guys from?

    Rolling Meadows, eh? I drive through there on a regular basis, heading to/from the B&N where I work part-time. As for me, I live in Mt. Prospect... it's good to see another NW 'burber on the boards. There were only two of us active before, and I dunno if Lapis is coming over to the Snowboards. ::shrug::

    Plainfield. Also known as "Tornado Alley" to everyone else. So we had 19 touchdowns in 1999 - so what? My house is still standning.

    Yes, B&N does equal Barnes & Noble, and yes, I am talking about the one on Golf Rd. next to Fuddruckers. ;)

    Next time we have a non-con event out in the NW burbs, I suggest meeting there for coffee first. :D

    Oooo, Sithman is a youngan too!
    Actually, I don't really live in Chicago, but about 2 hours SouthWest instead in LaSalle County.
    So, if you're watching the Channel 5 news or something, and they show the weather for the Chicago land area, they always just miss us because we are just that much outside of Chicago. It sucks, so I have to watch the Weather Channel then.
    I know that really had nothing to do with anything, but I just though I'd share it with you.

    Ooh! Ooh! Is Burnsville an alternate version of Springfield where Homer Simpson was never born? "I am the absolute monarch of Burnsville. Exxxxcellent!"

    another suburbanite here. recently relocated to mundelein. by the way, i'm very envious of the star wars fans in seattle. they have the seattle star wars society. they have parties and contests and rent out theatres all the time. is there anything vaguely resembling that here?

    Wellll, there is Chicago Force. We recently had a Holiday outing at the Field Museum, Tucci Benucch, and Navy Pier IMAX. We had a fun time and threw a chilling Hoth-themed room party at Windy Con. We and the Moisture Farm Co-Op (from Richmond, VA) beat the Seattle Star Wars Society and Star Wars Society of San Antonio in a trivia contest with a score of 262 to 4. We're going to Capricon in February and will undoubtedly do something in January, although we haven't figured out what yet (last day of Magic of Myth at the Field perhaps?).

    I would like to welcome all those who we would consider new to the former FF site. The CF welcomes everyone and I recommend you all to check out the web-site.

    First off - it's "Comiskey Park", not "White Sox Park". It was White Sox park for one year, maybe two, in the early 70's.

    Bolingbrook is out near me (Plainfield). Dawn, you are about 30 miles from downtown. But we are way cooler. :)

    Move along. Move along.

    This is pretty cool. More people! Ah, and we have a Rockford-onian. My bestfriend lives there, but I haven't been there in a while myself. But it's a great place.
    So, welcome all.

    Welcome to all the FanForce newcomers! :D Don't worry, we're harmless. Well, mostly harmless.

    (and yes, Phil, I know that's a HHG reference... ;)

    BTW, Dawn? I'm sorry that you live so close to JediJeff. ::chuckle::
