    We will be holding a gift exchange at the Holiday Party. The suggested gift amount is $15-$20.

    If you would like to participate, please post in the thread AND include some suggestions for the exchange. The deadline to participate is Friday November 30. Mindy has volunteered to sort the list and distribute names to the participants. You will receive an email with your person's name on December 1. Please make sure your email is in your post or profile if you are not listed on the current contact list.

    Please remember that if you cannot make it to the party for whatever reason, but have chosen to participate, it is YOUR responsibility to get your gift to the party. No one likes to bring a gift without receiving on in return. If you must, please make arrangements prior to the party to get your gift to someone else attending.

    I'm in for this. Love Barnes and Nobles!! I love SW reference books either about the Jedi/Sith history or about the technology (hey - got to get my inspiration somewhere. The Jedi Path book inspired my character and new Jedi costume that is currently in process).

    There are Star Wars plastic models out there too. I've been looking at some of the star fighters, but haven't picked any of them up.

    Gift Certificates are cool too. B&N, Target, Walmart, etc... You guys know me.
