    Another year is upon us.

    Some things I have been thinking about.

    I know that myself and Dot read alot of the EU novels, and we discuss them with each other once we have read them. If anyone else is interested I'd be happy to have some sort of EU books thread or something if anyone else is also reading the EU stuff.

    We seem to still be having issues with meeting attendance. Small numbers and long distance being our two largest factors. Online meetings may help with that. There has not been alot of interest in the voice based meetings (Ventrilo/Skype). Perhaps chat based meetings? Something to think about.

    I think that after two years of trying, it's safe to say that at this point we simply do not have the resources/manpower to pull off a fan film, or even an RPG. We are still open to suggestion though.

    I'm working on getting the wvfanforce.com domain name back from Ithorian. I'd like to get the site back up with the chat and events calendar.

    :)

    I like the ideas. I also think maybe we should try to get more people involved in the FanForce. Create Fliers for meetings and send them out. We are the only FanForce in WV aren't we? Maybe In my town and neighboring ones we could advertise for members.

    It would also work good for me because I could get a ride to a meeting that way.

    Maybe do our own Convention to drum up support?

    I also Read the EU books. I actually own the entire series, and have read and reread em, so id love to chat about em. A weekly text chat might be good, tho we should prolly still and try to do a meeting from time to tiem in person, just when we can get one worked out, schedule wise.

    Hiya everyone!

    Unfortunately, circumstances beyond my control kept me away from the internet for a while. I had a bit of....an accident....but am recovering now and doing better (I think)...*snort*

    A meeting via chat sounds good to me. In fact, I remember way back when my first communication with you all was through chat. :)

    I am excited about things to come in 2008, and of course seeing everyone at the Pitt Comicon again. I always enjoy the trip and getting to spend time with you all. :)

    Hope you all had a good Christmas, and as I write this the clock is ticking down towards a new year. Wow....time sure does fly.

    In any case, I am alive and well and looking forward to helping Outlanders' Haven move forward. What more could a person want? LOL!

    :D

    chat sounds good to me too.

    I'd still like to hear what you all thought about my ideas about Fliers and what not. Or we could have a recruitment drive maybe?

    i really think we could get more involved and help the club grow.

    Happy 2008 greetings to everyone!! I've been away from the group for far too long. I work pretty much every Saturday night at the skate rink in Bridgeport, and we open at 7pm. The only Saturdays I don't work are the ones on which we're travelling to a speed skating meet somewhere. I'd be in favor of online chat meetings except I work several evenings per week, namely Tues, Fri, and Saturdays. I could do it most any other time.

    I read the EU books too. I'm currently reading the Legacy of the Force series. I'm on "Fury" having just finished "Inferno". I think an EU thread would be great.

    Now its interesting that you mentioned a fan film, as it just happens that I have a friend who is also a film maker. He is planning to write and direct a Star Wars fan film, and he wants to shoot it this spring. If the group on its own doesn't have the resources to do its own film, maybe you guys would want to help with my friend's film? We're going to need plenty of help. Especially with costumes and props. We'll need lightsabers that we can actually beat around with. I was thinking maybe Fettish and her husband could help with that? Let me know what you guys think.

    Sorry to have been away from the group for so long.

    Hi Fettish...

    I'm glad to be back around. I'm going start being more active with the group again. I miss hanging out with you guys.

    What do you think of the fan film idea I mentioned?

    Hey Zoomer!

    I think we would be happy to be involved in a FanFilm. We will have to probably discuss it more as a group during one of our meetings! Nice to see you around again!

    Thanks Rap. I'll have more details about the fan film, when my friend gives them to me. He's working on another film right now. He thinks it'll be spring, but realistically I'm betting on summer or fall. It gives plenty of time to get ready though.
