    This date, time, and location are set in stone? It?s going to happen? I?ve heard no new news of information on it since the meeting.

    Just an update:

    Since they were directly requested. I?ve been playing phone tag with the DSG?s CO (Neil) for a week. I posted on their message boards requesting people come down for the food drive (dsg member please click the attendance thing on the event request). They seem to have something scheduled the day before, and no real info. on the attendance from PHX yet. I looked into getting the Rebel Legion also but I think Frank and I are it in the Tucson area.

    I?d like to see if we can ask the Phoenix Fan Force if they would like to come also. I figured I?d ask here before I ask on their boards.

    I can?t think of another relevant group to ask to join, you all know I?m trying (and not doing so well) in fostering a community in AZ. of Sstar Wars fans from all groups and disciplines.

    Seeing that I have no authorization to okay anything, I say go ahead and ask them. At worst they will not show up, which will be the same result if we do not ask them. So I say again, ask away.

    Just wondering why this is called Galactic Empire? Is that the event name or a place? Sorry if it's seems a dumb question, but I guess I missed something.

    It's a brick and morter store/museum. It's called that 'cause that's what Phil (the owner) named it. It's not a dumb question. http://www.danzelmo.com/www.tucsonfanforce.com/Order66/GalacticEmpire.htm

    You'd be best off also posting this on there offsite boards:

    phxff.net

    You'll reach the CR that way. ;)

    Thanks for the idea. I've done that before and not gotten the confirmation e-mail. I'll do another request for user on the off-site ForceNet PHX boards.

    Ah, I see. Thanks for the info. I know some people down here who would be interested in this place also. If I can manage a way up there, I'd like to make this event. Not sure if I'll be in costume or not.

    I just looked at the memberlist and you aren't on it unless you used a different name. Try registering again. If you don't get an email let me know and I'll persuade Void Dancer to validate you. [face_devil] [It's good to be the Webmaster's sister! :p]

    I didn't know that!

    I attempted to re-sign up but it said that user name is in use. I requested a valadation e-mail again.

    I re-signed up and got this....

    I think I'm trying to fast.

    OK, I'm on it. I'll send Voidychan a PM and ask him to unlock your account.

    As for the sister part, we are brother and sister by choice ;)

    OK, this is my last hijack post of this thread. :p

    Void Dancer is my brother by choice, not by blood. We adopted each other. Commander Choad from the PFF is also my brother by choice.

    I do have a topic related question. Are you going to accept monetary donations? I found that was very effective for the food drive we did. We had the "Make a $1 donation and get your picture taken with a SW Character" thing.

    I think the idea of "charging" $1.00 donation (to the food bank) was discussed but never got further than that. It was a resounding success at the Katrina gig.

    I know Phil (of Galactic Empire) said he would "knock off" $2.00 off admission to his shop if someone donated a can of food.

    I've asked the Phoenix Fan Force and the DSG if they would join us on the 30th.

    1 week from today.

    Any new news or anything we need to know at this point?

    Do we have a secure place to store our stuff inside?

    4 of us ARE the DSG(Tucson).

    So far it's just 3 in Tucson confirmed (Dustin?).
    tk-9285, TK-2035, Darth Talon, Mandalore, TD-9898, ctrooper, trpttrooper are maybe. thats 7. Looks like Glenn gotta work.

    3 can't make it.

    I've not heard from the Rebel Legion. The PHX FF are a maybe, I know they discussed our event at their last meeting.

    Tucson FF will show. As far as costumed troops/jedi to attract people to the event we have 4 confirmed that I know of.

    Yeah, Damian's right...I'm out of this one.

    But thanks for thinking of me Chris!

    I'm watching the boards and eventually our schedules are gonna match up. I'm planning on the Howl-O-Ween thing again, but I'd like to do something with you guys before that too. My armor starts getting cranky if it doesn't get out of the box for a while.

    This one looks like fun, though, and it's for a great cause. Good media opportunity, too. I'll be thinking of you all and waiting for someone to post the pics!
