    Here's some more information on finding us.

    -Park anywhere in the Plaza parking lots located underneath the Plaza, having entered by way of any of the multiple entrances.

    -Inside the Plaza we're meeting at the food court in the Mall. The food court is located upstairs, right next door to the theater, near a yogurt place, a Macy's and a couple more food places. It's at the opposite end of the Hard Rock Cafe.

    -We'll meet in the indoor portion of the food court seating. My husband and I happened to be there last night, so I checked it out last night. If you need help finding me, I'm 27 years old, have blond hair, and I'll wear jeans and a light green v-neck sweater. I'll try to sit somewhere near the middle to watch all the entrances for people looking for me. I'm usually early too, to make sure we find everyone.

    -And yeah, keep the ticket parking gives you. The theater will valdiate the ticket for 4 hours, so you won't have to pay for parking.

    See everyone there! I'll check my pm's a couple more times today, so send me any questions.

    :D

    Okay, keep an eye out for a lost-looking guy with glasses and a shaved head. I'll be wearing either a blue fleece sweatshirt thingy or some sort of Northern Arizona University apparel. In fact, I look a lot like this, only without the moustache/goatee.

    Hi. I'm a newbie here, but I've been a regular at the Virtual Edition since August 98. I'm glad there's an online community somewhere finally!! At the VE, there's members all over the US, UK and Europe, so it's nearly impossible for us to meet. I'd love to come down, but I'm at school in Sonoma. I will be back in Sacramento for May 16, so I'd love to meet up with you guys then.

    Right on, Darth_Morfyus. Where are you at school in Sonoma? I lived there until I was 9.

    Yeah, I'm a junior at Sonoma State. I transfered here this semester and am living on campus. I read in here earlier about meeting in Roseville, which is where I grew up. Have you guys planned a place to see AotC yet? The United Artist Theaters in Roseville is very comfortable and in a nice part of town. Waiting in line for tickets and opening night were very uneventful, in case anyone is worried about getting harrassed the way those poor guys in Seattle are.

    On the main page of theforce.net someone was saying that the new "Clone War" trailer was not showing with Ice Age, but Forbidden Love was instead. Hopefully it was just that particular theater, but something to think about.

    It's in Canada where the Trailer isn't playing, because Clone War is a trailer for a PG movie, and Ice Age is rated "F", the same as "G" here. So that's why.

    Well, we just saw Ice Age and it had the new trailer. Whew! There was so much happening in it that I'll definitely have to download it and watch it some more just to take everything in. The movie was very entertaining, as well.

    My brother and I really enjoyed meeting everyone. This was the third meeting, so I guess we're official now! For those who weren't there, we elected Aunt Jar Jar Mimah as our City Rep (big surprise there, huh?). Now I just gotta get the Sac FF icons tweaked and submitted.

    Great to meet Jeremy and Brent for the first time, as well as the old crew again. Lord Darth Vader's lightsabers were great, and his knowledge for them is scary. ;)

    Ice Age was pretty darn funny, many many hilarious moments.

    Our group definitly made our mark when the trailer came out, LOL. As I mentioned to those who were there tonight, I'm glad I saw it before tonight, or else I wouldn't be able to focus on the movie after the trailer. Great to see it on the big screen.

    It was a lot of fun. :D We had a great turn out of easily-bribed fans from as far away as Yuba City and Chico: Pacman, Lord Darth Vader, Sacul-1138, Sacul's brother in law and wife, Jeremyguy, Jeremy's brother Brett (who now needs to register at the Jedi Council), Bright Sith and my husband through dinner. We chowed at the food court and talked about everything from the trailer, spoilers, the September 11th documentary on CBS, new AOTC figurines, Jedi Council gossip, and even got to see the cool lightsabers Vader makes for sale on ebay (*very* nice).

    The trailer was fantastic. I think I'll have to see it another 20 times, before I can even have seen half of what was in the action-packed trailer. Ice Age was fun too.

    We're thinking we'll have one more meeting before the May release of the new movie. Michael mentioned Spaghetti Factory. Does that sound good to everyone? Is the downtown one more central for everyone than the one out 50 at Nimbus? Since we want to meet before Vader's surgery likely on April 8th, howabout Saturday April 6th for dinner at the downtown Spaghetti Factory at 1910 J Street, directly across from the Starbucks where we first met?

    I'll see what everyone thinks and then we'll do a thread. If it looks like we have a large enough group, I can reserve a room.

    A bunch of people have pm'd that they're interested in showing up for a meeting. Don't be shy! :D We have a good group, and the more the merrier. Pm me any questions.

    Brett registered last night when we got home from the movie. He's Elvish_Jedi. :)
