    Someone suggested sending a New Jedi Order event to nebraska. Any idea how many of you guys are in the Omaha Fan Force? And do any of you work in a bookstore?

    Thanks!

    There are roughly 10-15 "active" members in the OFF...and a few that come out for our bigger get togethers. None that work for a bookstore...that I know of at least. The closest thing to that is one that I believe works for the local newspaper. I only live 3 blocks away from Barnes & Noble though! :D I'm sure you could count on plenty of support from the OFF though.

    A New Jedi Order thing would totally rock - and I do indeed still work for the Omaha World-Herald (circulation including all of Nebraska and western Iowa - "local newspaper" indeed...)

    And I know there are plenty of Star Wars fans in Omaha, besides FanForce members. Something like this would draw out Star Wars fans like toy collectors at Toy-r-us on new action figure day. And i'm sure the 501st guys could be coaxed out of the woodwork too.

    So, what's the word on this? Have we successfully scared Del Rey away, yet? I would have to dust off the armor for this one.

    Haven't scared me away yet; trying to figure out if I can squeeze Omaha in there somehow...

    Give me a couple days.

    Well, if you can make it happen I will definitely pull out the scout armor for this.

    Seeing how Omaha hardly ever gets Star Wars related events outside Fan Force activities, an officially sanctioned NJO event would be great! We could squeeze an author or two in. THere's plenty of places to stay.

    So, should I take it from recent posts to the 501st message boards that Omaha didn't make the cut again, or is there still a chance of this happening? The post that I received was on the James Luceno book signing tour for the final NJO book to be released in November. The list I saw didn't have Omaha on it.

    It's probably too late to throw my support in, as I haven't checked these boards for over a week now, but I offer my support totally if it makes any difference. I know it's a bit late, but something is better than nothing!

    I will be glad to offer help, assistance, and publicity to any Star Wars or NJO-related endeavor that should seek Omaha as a base. Let me know how I can help, because at this point I'm just cheerleading.

    Thanks for considering us, even if we do not get picked!

    have you guys heard from DelReyPublicity? I was the one that suggested that James Luceno's tour stop in Nebraska, if that's what she's talking about.
