Wanted to get an event planning thread started for the first half of the year anyway. Most of these events will have their own dedicated planning thread eventually. There’s really nothing new or unexpected, a lot of it will look familiar to past years. Just wanted to give people the chance to think, plan ahead or add any new events they think may be of interest. February March March 1 One Man Star Wars Show (already a planning thread up for anyone interested) March 1-3 ConNooga-Convention in Chattanooga but several LGA members usually attend. Note GOH Daniel Logan http://www.connooga.com/ March 16-17 Lexington Comic show-this con got rave reviews in it’s first year last year and this year they have even more Star Wars guests. So of course I have to work this weekend…but I hope the LGA will be well represented. http://www.lexingtoncomiccon.com/ April April 5-7 Conglomeration- I have to work this weekend (yes, once again) but I’m still planning on the traditional LGA Friday night room get together. However this is not the slam dunk it usually is, when I put in to get the Friday off I found out this is JCPS Spring Break and other Co-Workers have already put in their vacation. http://www.conglomeration.info/ May May 4 FCBD (Free Comic Book Day)-It looks like I’ll actually be off this weekend so unless something happens I’m planning on begging for a table at my comic shop if anyone wants to join me. Note that FCBD, May the Fourth and Derby all fall on the same day this year. May 18-19 Wonderfest- It seems I have to work all the fun weekends this year and Wonderfest is once again no exception. But anyone that can go should check out the awesome models by the LGA’s own award winning Jammies! http://www.wonderfest.com/ Star Wars Where Science Meets Imagination starts May 25 and runs through Sept 2 (already a planning thread up) June June 29 Derby City Comic Con-a local con but really more focused on the comic industry rather than media guests http://www.derbycitycomiccon.com/ July July 26-28 Fright Night Film Fest-I don’t care for the organizer or how gaming and costuming are treated like step children but he does bring in the big names. Worth watching to see what guests are announced. http://www.frightnightfilmfest.com/ That takes us through the first half of the year and a little more. Of course there are always our Book Club meetings and other self organized events to look forward to as well. And of course later in the year we have the 3-D releases of AOTC and ROTS to look forward to. Anything for the first half of the year I’ve forgotten? Any activities or events anyone wants to create or take charge of?
