    Ok, guys, here are the details. I'm planning on hosting the next construction party at my house. I spoke with my parents, got the Ok and set the date.

    Saturday, April 27
    12 noon - whenever

    Please post if you plan to come, so I will have some idea of how many peeps to expect.

    Also, I'm hoping for a small donation from each person, so we can order pizza or something.

    Directions:

    8239 W. Hatfield Rd.
    Peoria, AZ 85383
    Cell: 623-363-3530

    Take Loop 101 North/West to 75th Ave. (I'm assuming you will know how to get to the Loop 101)
    Exit 75th Ave and go North (right).
    Turn West (left) on Deer Valley Rd. (stoplight)
    Turn North (right) on 83rd Ave. (stoplight)
    Turn East (right) on Villa Lindo (this is the last right turn before the road dead-ends at a mountain)
    Turn North (left) on 82nd Dr. (this is the first left)
    My house is on the Southwest (right) corner of 82nd Dr. and Hatfield Rd.

    You may park along the side near the garage (on 82nd), or along the front (on Hatfield).

    I hope to see you there!

    Woo-hoo! Finally something on our side of town! I'll be there (provided I can rope someone into giving me a ride which shouldn't be too much of a problem :) ).

    No promises, but I'll try. I'll be up that way but will be in a conference til about 2:00. I'll do my best, considering I need to make another saber. Mine fell and shattered into many tiny pieces...well okay all the pieces fell off on Sunday as I was making the rounds at AWA. So I need to build a new one.

    TD0690: You're more than welcome to come if you want. It's just a buch of SW geeks having fun (I use the term "geeks" loosely). There will inevitably be at least one other person who's not planning on making anything. Bring your saber and your knowledge for those who aren't as learned.

    Actually Mobius I don't really know crap about building a lightsaber, I bought mine. But if I can make it to the party, I will bring it anyways, it's pretty sweet! :D

    TD0690: I would love it if you joined us at the meeting. I have many, many questions about ST armor (or Biker Scout or any Imperial outfits).

    I am close to having my Rebel Fleet Trooper done, and would also like to find out more about the fine art of trooping and possibly join you at future events. Even though I'm one of the "bad guys". ;)


    BTW, do you have any binders?

    Well I should have the answers... atleast some of them. If I can make it, I could bring my armor and blasters with me to help answer some of your questions if you'd like. :)

    That's cool, it's always good to have some bad guys around for target practice. ;)

    Actually I don't have any binders. :( Then again, I never take any prisoners. [face_devil]

    Hmm... too many possible responses with my just awakened at 2:30 am mind to the specific request for binders... I suppose it's best to just bite my tongue and get ready to leave on our trip.

    First off hello, I have been a long time Starwars fan but I am just getting into this aspect of it. I live here in AZ and have just started yesterday getting the parts I need for building a lightsaber. I have bought several differenty lengths and sections of chrome plumbing piping and have an initial design drawn up. It doesn't have to stay exactly like I drew it up though. I have read some web sites about making them and I am running into a little trouble. I was wondering if you all wouldn't mind me showing up to your party? I don't get off work on Saturdays till 4 so I probably wouldn't be able to make it there until at least 5 or 6.

    Luketc: Join up, by all means!!! I was WAY late to the last one, and they were still working when I left.

    TK0690: That's OK, I'd rather go down shooting anyways. Better to take down a few more imps than get caught by their scum. ;)

    (One of my best friends in Denver is a guy named faceplant, aka Dave Hoffman, Biker Scout, so I'm not really against the Empire. I want to play both sides of the fence, that's all!)

    LOL! Rebel Scum like you couldn't hit the broad side of a sandcrawler! [face_laugh]

    Of course, neither could Sandtroopers, those were Tusken Raiders that did that. [face_mischief]

    **Looks around**

    **Nobody suspects a thing** :D
