    Who did you get them from? That way we'll know who you need to find.

    The majority of us, including LAFF, SDFF and the Lineing-Up group, are meeting in the picnic/grass area before the entrance to the stadium. Most will be bringing something to eat. I'll probably be there around 6:00. I'll PM you my cell number so you can call me tomorrow when you get there and we'll send out a search party.

    Remember to bring your lightsabers if you've got them!!! There were about 80 of them last year and it sounds like our group alone will surpass that!!! Very cool!

    I bought them from Miana Kenobi who I think bought them from you. We'll look for you guys on the grassy area. I'm guessing we'll get there around 7:30 or so, but we'll try to leave earlier! I'll PM you my cell phone number too. Thanks!

    Yep, I've got all of Miana's tickets. I don't think you'll have a difficult time finding us. Just keep your eye out for the coolest lookin' group of geeks (with all the light sabers) and that will be us!

    Give me a call me when you get there.

    Thank you for the update for meeting up. We are going to try to get there early around 6pm or 6:30pm. I think we will get some sandwiches, too. Can't wait and Stuart, we are bringing the Vader lightsaber with new batteries in it for you.

    THERE ARE 5 OR 6 TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE IF ANYBODY CAN STILL MAKE IT AT THE LAST MINUTE.

    Let me know. This event is really worth going to if you can. The music and the company are both fantastic!!!

    It was good to see the IE out at the Bowl last night. Thanks for making the drive and making it a great evening.

    I have some pictures you can see here

    I had a good time. Thanks for the loan of the saber Hanchewie and lets all give a big hand to our Keeper of the Credits for booking all those tickets and making sure we all had a fabulous group outing at the Bowl! Roll on Summer'08!

    It was my pleasure. I've already contacted VK (formerly from LAFF). She is the person that gets a call from the HBowl before the word is publicly put out about these type of events. She said she'd let me know when the call comes in. It might be in as little as six months when they start going on sale. It would be terrific if we could all sit together rather than having the rows of "normals" between the two groups!

    Looks like I just volunteered myself to be the ticket person for next year. :oops: It's worth it because it so much dang fun!!

    Here is the link to the pix and (whispering) the video I took last night. At the very end, there are 2 mixes of all the footage I took together and in order.

    If you do a search for John Williams Hollywood Bowl on youtube, you'll see several videos with all of our lightsabers. Impressive, most impressive!

    Yes, thank you Kari, for taking care of all the tickets! Darren and I had a great time! That was so awesome to look around and see the forest of lightsabers popping up! I think other than the Star Wars songs, my favorite piece was the one from Vertigo. It gave me chills!

    I enjoyed ET and Indiana Jone the most. I also didnt think Mr Williams talked to the audience as much as he did last year, i missed that.

    Kari, the pictures are great and we had a great time. I didn't take many pictures myself. All I got was a big blur. But all the other pictures are great. Thank you for getting the tickets for everyone. The sea of lightsabers is great. I saw a lot of camera flashes when all the lightsabers came on from below us. It was great. And Stuart, you are very welcome to borrow again. I am glad you enjoyed it.

    No more loans to AaS, Sandy. We all need to encourage him to get his own. Come on, AaS. You can do it!! And you'll never have a moments regret once that beautiful lightsaber is yours and in your hand!!

    It's a good thing!

    Yo guys,

    I don't post on these boards too much but I was at the Bowl on the 14th.. I think I was sitting a couple sections behind you guys and I just want to say way to represent! I was so surprised to see so many SW fans esp. with lightsabres.. that was the highlight of the night for me and my friends who are non-SW fans btw. I was kinda bummed that he didn't play my favorite song, Battle of Heroes... I heard last year there was a chorus and everything, what happened this year?

    And where can you get a good deal on sabers.. hehe I want a Maul one.

    Keep an eye on Master Replica's myspace, they often send out bulletins with deals for sabers!

    Well the concert would get quite boring if he played the same songs every year. ;) Though I do admit, the concert where he played Battle of the Heroes was AMAZING.

    Here's my pics from the concert, most of the turned out blurry cos my 4x zoom bites! I also pinched some of Mike's and Kari's from pre-concert as they were both snapping away.
