    For a town that had a three-day line up for TPM tickets, wrapped around the theatre (I was third in line! Yup... fanboy on the premises :)), I sure expected there to be a larger online presence from Regina or Saskatoon SW fans. But alas, I have found few if any comrades in arms. I think I may weep openly. :_|

    This is seriously depressing. There are approximately 1,000,000 people in Saskatchewan, and it seems that I'm the only one that:
    a)Likes Star Wars
    b)Has a computer
    c)Visits and posts to this forum

    I'm one in a million. I always thought that would be a better feeling :(

    <sniff> Thanks, cbjedi. It makes me feel a *little* better. What's wrong with us Saskatchewanners? I can't think of any forum here as dead as this one.

    Saskatchewan right over here.

    This is my first visit to the FanForce sections. I honestly didn't think I'd find anyone here.

    Wonderful! To quote one of the Trade Federation dudes in TPM : "Now there are two of them?! We should not have made this bargain..." :)

    It must be nice to have your faith in Saskatchewan restored. I was afraid you'd start in on Tatooine comparisons or worse!

    I knew it wouldn't take long for the Tatooine comparisons :) Truthfully, though, tell me you've never stood alone in a field, watching the sun sink into a golden sea of wheat, with John Williams "Force" theme playing in your head, and been reminded of another restless farmboy, longing for adventure just like you, in a galaxy far far away...

    I know I sure as heck haven't! ;)

    That's what made me love the movies in the first place!

    I'm LUKE SKYWALKER

    I'm LUUUUUUUUUUUUUKE SKYYYYYYYYYYWAAAAAAALKER,

    I'm LUUUUUUUUUUUUUKE SKYYYYYYYYYYWAAAAAAALKER,

    Wait a minute... his Parents got killed. I take it back.

    I'm a Tattoine boy who's powerful in the force but whose legal guardians don't get killed!

    (Too bad we've only got one sun...)

    Well, one sun is good enough for me, if only the yellow ******* would show his face, once in a while! :) It's been so bloody cold and windy, lately, that I've forgotten what a proper sunset looks like.

    So, here's the list so far of JCers currently in SK:

    Whimper
    Emajakrel
    Rouge Null
    VONG_MASTER_

    And ones formerly from SK:

    Ghent
    Siduri
    BigBadBlah


    For a grand total of 7! Hey, they could make a movie about us prairie-dwellers! Like the Seven Samurai, only with farmer-hats!

    You guys can add another Saskatoon SW fan to your list. I'm in Saskatoon. I was in line for TPM, and I'm at the UofS.

    I have a question for you. do any of you play SWCCG? if so you should go to Dragon's Den on 8th St. in Saskatoon, and check out our SW tourney's. lots of SW fun.

    there's a SW tourney this Saturday May 19th, at 12:00. so show up and i'm sure someone will teach you or welcome you. i probably won't be there this week, but i usually am :p

    Right on, that's eight of us! Anyway, I don't play CCGs very much, but maybe we'll run into each other some day anyway. Great to hear from you!

    Aha! I've just received word that SandwichBoy, from the Toronto group, was also once from Saskatchewan (S'toon, in fact). So now there are nine!

    Ahem...

    *whips out her guitar*
    'Oh, give me a home where the bantha herds roam, and the dewbacks and krayt dragons play. Where seldom is heard a discouraging word and our two suns burn brightly all day!...'

    Thanks.. yes, that was interesting. Not sure where I pulled that out from.

    Hello and good-bye from Saskatchewan.. :)

    I used to play the SW CCG, but that was many moons ago.

    9? Only 9?

    I must recruit more of my friends. Until then I hang my head in shame.

    Saskatchewan
    minimum guaranteed analysis

    SW fan..........9ppm

    Right on! That's 11 past/present Saskatchewanians. If we round up 3x that many, and try to get together sometime, we could almost have a FanForce chapter! :)

    HEy. I'm from saskatchewan too. Just ask the poster formerly known as Rougenull{RogueNull now} I think that if you live in Saskatoon You should check out Tramps Comics. They have some good star wars books and comics.

    I was born and raised in Alberta, and that is where I currently live. But when I was in grade 12 I went to private school in Rosthern, Saskatchewan. I'll tell you that was one of the funnest years in my life. :) Sure it was a little cold compared to Southern Alberta, but the good company in Saskatchewan didn't make it seem so bad.

    Welcome to you both! Tchewey, we've got a Tramps here in Regina too. Good selection, but they've got almost no competition, so their prices are insane. I used to know the general manager there, and while he's a nice guy, he'd do anything for a buck. It's sad, but Tramps is the reason I don't read comic books anymore...

    On a happier note-
    This now brings the list to... 13? Now for the Update!




    So, here's the list so far of JCers currently in SK:

    Whimper 2,233

    Rouge Null (Aka RogueNull) 956

    Emajakrel 174

    Jedi_Ellejandra 80

    LtKettch 60

    Tchewbacca 55

    VONG_MASTER_ (Aka VongMaster) 14

    uejantillas AKA ??? 1 (under this alias only)

    And ones formerly from SK:

    Falkcj 1,775

    Siduri 305

    Ghent 28

    BigBadBlah 18

    Sandwichboy 16



    Hmm... it looks as though the amount of posts steeply drops once one leaves Saskatchewan. Could it be that people outside our great province actually have lives?? :eek:


    :p
