    Hi everyone,

    I wanted to open up the conversation about the possibility of meeting at Lord_Sidious's place for this monumental occasion. I am off Tuesday, Sept. 21st, but have to work the next two days following, Wed. and Thurs. Fri., Sat., and Sun. are also good for me.

    First and foremost we need to hear from the dark lord himself to see if he will have us over or not, but I do believe his offer to host the meeting still stands.

    Finally, I want to apologize for my apparent lack of coordination in regards to the meeting we did not have in July (Lafayette). I was pre-occupied with the Law Enforcement Training Academy OR SWG. You decide ;)

    Well, the floor is open, let's discuss it.

    I could still host the meeting if everyone is interested. I have a conflict on the evening the DVD's come out, and the following Saturday (9/25) is out because of a LSU home football game. That Friday evening or Sunday would be OK.

    In that case I would prefer the Friday. Anyone else want to offer any suggestions?

    On second thought, all three movies and visiting with friends OLD and NEW may take some time. How about we make it a 8 hr. or more event? Therefore, Sunday would more than likely be best. Any feedback? Anyone?

    UPDATE: I sent out the news letter a few minutes ago. In case you did not receive it, please send me a private message with you correct eMail address. The news letter can also be viewed by CLICKing this link. Please check it out & me informed as of how to get in touch with you.

    I would love to make this the first meeting I attend :)

    Classes started this week for me so I will have to see how things go over the next week or so to be able to tell if there is an opening for me at ANY time in the next 5 months. (lol)

    I will post back here as soon as I get some info.

    ...we will all be purchasing our copy Tuesday, September 21st, the day of the release. Therefore, I suggest NOT watching the movies until the day of the meeting.

    Awww just rub it in Swampsurfer. Amazon won't be sending my DVDs until the 27th (more likely the 29th). So I don't think you have to worry about me being tempted. I really won't know until that week, if I will be able to attend the meeting. So any day will fine with me, even that Sunday during football.
    I am also assuming that the t-shirts will either be avaible or will be able to order at the meeting. The last modified design was fine with me.

    The Friday or the sunday after the release date is fine with me. Saturday is a big NO for everybody because LSU Football takes over the city of baton rouge on gamedays. and about the t-shirts, go to the t-shirt thread and read my latest post.

    The Friday is better for me. I'll be off work that day.

    I might could get outta work if the group deceides on Sunday though.

    Having said that, it's hard to make plans with "The Littlest Jedi" (or Bounty Hunter in SWG) around. I'll try to make it either way, just need a day and destructions on how to get there.

    I've also seen the new clip of the Emperor in Emipire...not a bad change, but all in all, I wish they would leave the films alone.

    Have you seen the Tv spots for the DVDs? Doesn't it make you feel like a kid again, waiting for your parents to take you to see the movies. So when are we having this meeting? Sunday? or Friday? Those looks like the two most popular days. Cons and Pros of each day: Friday has a good night to hit a refreshing drinking establishment after over 6 hourrs of movie watching. Sunday has NFL, so I would prefer Friday.

    Of course if Ivan hits the Gulf and wrecks havoc offshore, I may not see anyone for a long, long time.
