    This is the idea Craig and I kicked around for our next Fan Force meeting. An Episode 1 DVD release party. I do have October 16th off, and I expect to buy it that day, as I'm sure a bunch of you do as well. So what do you all say?

    Sounds like fun to me. I work until 5:30 but could come right after.

    I also just picked up a DVD called "The Stars of Star Wars" It has an hour long documentary about Star Wars from 1977 till present. It also has a bunch of interviews current and old. It's pretty cool. We could watch that sometime too.

    Be seeing you,

    Bob

    I like this idea! But where to have it? I dunno if my place is ideal. I have a DVD-rom drive on my pc. And the sound isn't very good either. Still, it's an alternative. Any other suggestions?

    Ok then. The next meeting will be at Dawmers, Oct 16 at 6:30. Email or pm him for directions. If you can, post here so we have an idea of who's coming.

    With any luck, I'll be there, though it'll probably be later than 6:30 since I don't get home from work till 6 anyway. Add in time to change clothes, grab food, etc... You get the picture. I was going to talk to the missus about offering up our place, but since Dawmer volunteered already, I guess it won't be necessary.

    right now it's up in the air if I'll be able to make it. I'll need directions anyways if it turns out that I'll be able to attend.

    Terribly good idea. Would be my first meeting, too. (missed Jay & Silent Bob)

    but I have to work Tuesday nights all of a sudden.

    I could have brought the DVD of DUALITY that I won at the AlphaCon/Lied Center silent auction, too.

    Another time, I hope.

    I think we may need to bump this sucker until the weekend, or even later. I could have it at my place on a saturday. Having it at my place is only a last resort, however. I have only a DVD-rom, a 17 inch monitor, crappy sound, and an attendence cap of about 5-6 due to limited seating, and noise considerations(the walls of my building are paper thin). Saturday is also the only day it would work for me(ie, it's a weekend, and most neighbors don't need to be up early for work, we could watch until 10- 10:30). I don't think this(having it in my slave hovel) is the best option, however. Anyone else with a DVD care to step up to bat and offer to host on short notice? I'm agreeable to say, the following saturday or sunday if this tuesday(16th) is too short notice.

    Anyone?

    Again, weekends are no good. Mondays and Tuesdays are the only days I can be available during the next two weeks.

    Sadly, Tuesday at my place is out. We're getting the house spotless for my daughter's first birthday. Once the place is clean, my wife wants it to stay that way. We're already going to chasing around a psycotic soon to be 1 year old. Maybe the following week. Let me discuss it w/ the missus. No promises, but who knows...

    Well then, I guess there will not be a meeting this Tuesday. We will just have to reschedule it for another day. Not a big deal.

    I'm guessing that by this point a meeting this tuesday has pretty much fizzled out. I'm only aware of about 4 of us having DVD's, and none can host. And since no one seems to be able to host, and having it on weekends is out, I guess on tuesday, I'll be watching it at home, alone. Maybe it's just me, but it seems that more and more anything we try and do is met with a small degree of indifference. Yatch and I each tried very hard to jumpstart the fanfilm by hosting meetings. I had an ethusiactic attendence of 3, and Yatch's had a pathetic 2. After about 15 minutes we decided to forget the meeting and go see Zoolander.

    The idea of sharing my enjoyment of Star Wars with other like-minded people is a very exciting one. Everything we've done as a club has been very fun. The idea of this club is one I'd like to see continue. Please don't let the idea die due to indifference.



    ..........damn, that was melodramatic, wasn't it? ;) :p

    I think you made me cry. :(

    There's a possibility I might be able to have it Tuesday at my place. My wife is still considering it.

    I live in Millard and have room for probably 10-12 people. It might be a little tight, but it would be fun. My TV's only a 25" and have only TV sound, no stereo. :( If you all can handle that!

    I will post her answer here by tomorrow night for sure. I hope it's not too late notice for everyone.

    Sorry boB. I counted you as one of the "enthusiastic 3"! ;)

    I wasn't out to hurt feelings with that post. Just expressing something that's been on my mind for a few weeks. That post actually started out far more pessimistic that it wound up. I have a habit of re-reading and editing when I "brake character" so to speak and get serious. At first I was indeed pessimistic and by the time that post made the final stages, I had sort of gotten worked up, and not quite as gloomy. I had no intention of upsetting anybody. And maybe my perceptions are being colored by the turbulent happenings of my personal life, and the fact that I'm now unemployed(sort of. Anyone hiring?) I still want to do stuff with y'all. Like do any of you parents have kids that are of trick-or-treating age? How about a FanForce halloween outing with your young-uns? Or how about anyone that wants to get done up in their own outfit gets together and hits the bars? I'll act as desingnated driver. I know alot of you expressed the desire to get dressed up in your star wars outfits! Or, since we have that chat thingiee on that Omaha FanForce site, how about we schedule a chat? Any of this sound interesting?

    Well Im hoping the drop off was due to the summer season and not a loss of interest. Most of you know my main obstacle is my work schedule. 3-11 isnt a great social shift. They are "supposed" to open a spot on days this month, so hopefully before too long I will be there and then available much more often. If not, it wont be until next spring. I think this was just a case of bad timing. I would have attended those other two meetings had I been able. I feel we have a pretty strong core of members, its just getting our schedules to mesh that is the problem.

    I think those are good ideas Jeff. Though Im still waiting for my costume to arrive. Hmmmmm. Another idea is a FanForce haunted house outing. Just a thought to ponder.

    I can honestly say my lack of participation has not been due to lack of interest. Believe me, outside my wife & daughter, SW is my existence. The kid is such a handful, I feel guilty leaving my wife alone with her. We do have a very strong group of strong members and I think this group will be around for a long time. A haunted house outing does sound very cool. Just need to Figure out a good time to do it. I'm supposed to be on call the last week of October (with any luck, that'll fall thru), but maybe the Thursday before Halloween? Any takers? We'd just have to figure out which ones we want to go to.

    If anybody is still interested about having it Tuesday, please post it here or e-mail me at uncleowen1138@cs.com

    I would like to know if it is worth trying to even have it.

    Thanks,

    Bob

    Me 2!!! I just dont know what time I can make it with the family being in town and all. I am still interested in having a movie night here at my place.... its jsut not going to be this week. And as far as my lack of participation, work is also getting in my way, about 70 hours in my way!! yuck!! So I need more than a weeks notice to do things so I can request an evening off to make functions. See ya on the flip side!! Laters D
