    Directions:

    From Lafayette traveling on I10; once you get to the I10/I12 split, stay on I10 (going to New Orleans) and take the Essen Lane exit, which will be the 1st exit past the split. You are going to take a right to get onto Essen Lane (going south). Essen has a 3 lanes going south. By the time you get to the railroad tracks (about a mile), you would want to be in the left lane. The 1st light past the railroad tracks has a Exxon and Burger King on it, go straight at the light and the 3 lanes will merge into the left lane. After a couple of turns, you will come to another stop light, go straight there. At around a 1/2 mile past the light, the 2-lane road will get wider and make a left turn center lane. At this location, take a right onto Boone Dr. There is a white street sign at the road, but it will come quickly so start slowing down before the start of the left turn lane. Once on Boone, you will come to two 4-way stops. Go straight at each one. Take the 1st left past the 2nd 4-way stop, which will be Baird Dr. (and there is no stop sign). I will be the 2nd house on the right; red bricked, white trim, black car.

    Coming from New Orleans on I10, just take a left on the Essen exit and follow the directions above once on Essen going south.

    The address is 563 Baird Dr, Baton Rouge 70808 if you want to see it on an internet map. My home # is 225 819-1205. My cell # is 225 938-5614.

    Oh ok, well then you can count me in for next sunday. I just found out yesterday that my step brother is sending my dad a gift certificate large enough to get the trilogy for my dad's birthday.

    I got mine this morning when I got off work. ($47.82)
    Wal-mart's have big displays out in the main isle.
    ... at least the one in Zachary did. Also I think I saw that the new game Battlefront is out today too.

    got mine this morning at suncoast (preordered for 54.49). It was a little bit more than wal-mart, but I got a free lithograph with the purchase. Can't wait to watch them at the meeting.

    Arrgh, atleast my copy has been sent on it journey to me. It should be at my doorsteps on 27th. The only good thing about this delay is that I will not be tempted to watch all three movies before the meeting. I don't think I could make it a whole week if the movies were actually in my possession.

    knnie picked up my copy while out shopping at WALMART and delivered at 1 A.M. Damn, I've got good friends.

    I watched everything but the features, to include the easter egg on the BONUS disk. The trailers are one of my favorite special features.

    I can't wait till SUNDAY. I agree with Ubigod; the anticipation is killin' me.

    We will be starting ANH around 11:00 in the morning this Sunday (9/26). If you cannot make it for the first movie, you are still welcome to stop by and join us for ESB and ROTJ.

    Based on this thread, 8 have said they were coming and 4 have said they might come. It would be nice to know how many to expect so that I can make sure I have enough chairs and all. So, if you know you can come and have not posted yet, please let us know. Thanks.
