    I know it's too early, since there is no program yet, but is there any interest in trying to meet up with people from the forum?

    I arrive Thursday afternoon also.
    Once I have found where I am staying and settled there I don't mind meeting up, of course there will be time during the event to do it to.

    A meet up sounds like a good idea. Just keep in mind that the Rebel Legion and 501st have their own events planned for Friday and Saturday evenings, respectively.

    I'm all for a meet up. I arrive on Thursday afternoon and will be staying at the Atlantic Congress Hotel. If any of you purchased the Jedi Master badges, I hope to meet you in line.

    I am also interested in a meet up.

    At the previous Celebrations I have met up with some members of Rebelscum, but I am not sure any of them are going this time.
    Though a meet up for me may depend upon the group of people I know, who are also at Celebration, as we might decide to do something else as a group.

    Also; as Jae-Dec, I have a Jedi Master Badge, so I expect to spend some of Thursday evening pre-shopping af the official store.
    And since Thursday seem like the more logical day to meet up, then I might not be there from the beginning.

    Is that for their members only or anyone can come along?

    The 501st and RL things are only for members.

    I was also thinking that maybe a picknick during the ROTJ screening could be nice.

    Not to be a stickler, but that's not entirely accurate. The RL is enjoying a meal together at a restaurant and while they are there as a group, that doesn't mean others aren't allowed to eat at the same restaurant. Also, the 501st meal is a ticket event only open to members, but there is a party planned afterwards that may be open to the public.

    A picnic during the ROTJ screening does sound like a good idea.

    Sounds like fun.
    Someone should try and get Ian McDiarmid to come along, since he's in the movie :p

    Those who have ordered "Jedi Master" VIP badges will first have to visit Will Call to pick them up.
    On Thursday night, Will Call ends at 18:00 which is also when the gates will open for VIPs to visit the Store.
    So, how about having the (first) meetup on Thursday afternoon before that, but not too early. Maybe starting at around 17:00 - 17:30 near Will Call? VIPs would then get a chance to meet people before getting in line for the store at which time the rest of us could go somewhere to get a bite and drink.

    That actually sounds like a really good plan.

    I like it. I will definitely be picking my VIP pass up the night before. Have been to the last three Celebrations here in the States, can't wait to see how the Germans party out to Star Wars. [face_dancing]

    According to the main site, various food places in the nearby Rüttenscheider Straße will be official "Cantinas" offering Star Wars related activities on Saturday night. A meetup at one of these places seems like it could be fun.

    I had already checked out Rüttenscheider Staße on Google maps. It has quite a few restaurants. Just one block has no less than three Italian restaurants/pizza restaurants.

    It'll be cool to have a meet up or party or whatever (anything to meet follow JC/FFer would be great). Since I just can come to the CEII on Saturday, that's the only day I can join such a meeting. So I really hope there's another meet up at Saturday. Would be great. :)

    The Cantina Crawls seems to be three pubs on Rüttenscheider Straße that are "official cantinas".
    Can anybody tell more about the 501st Party also on Saturday night? Is that just a meetup at a pub or something more?

    The 501st party is a full party, with food and drinks. You had to buy tickets in advance, and they are all sold out now. At around midnight the party will move to a close by place,and that will be open for everybody.
