    Guys, I GOT the Jeremy Bulloch question right. He starred in 2 Bond movies:

    Octopussy (1983) .... Smithers
    For Your Eyes Only (1981) (uncredited) .... Smithers

    I put Octopussy, so I was right! No difference though, I just would ahve tied with Tracy for second (I think).

    Hey Wait a Min...

    Kenobi from Up North here...Los Con (while it has been called Lost Cause and a whole lot worse since it started)..was not completely a waste of time.. We met Shawn and some of you others there AND because of OC (yeah..All your peoples fault) we are in the process of starting Tulare County Fan Force...Plus we just sorta Adopted ourselves to you. (That will teach Shawn to run us down) Oh yeah, we were the Kenobi, Anakin, Padme and Master Ash..also don't forget Anakin's "Dead Mom" that was lugged all over the con after the costume contest and the next day. She is also our mascot.

    So, we are hoping to start making it down for some of the Costume Workshops, Armor Workshops (we do have a vacumform to bribe with..even though nobody here has the faintest idea how to work it)... and help with some of your funraisers.

    Will be checking in with the OC boards and hope to see everyone in person fairly soon. (Or as soon as it quits snowing and shutting down the grapevine)

    Clear Skies to all

    we do have a vacumform to bribe with..even though nobody here has the faintest idea how to work it

    You must get in contact with Tim Knapp (Theatrix) of the 501st. I'm sure he can help you guys figure it out since I believe he's got his own equipment for that as well.

    I can't remember if anyone in OCSWS has one or not.

    Yeah..we know when were wanted! :) That's it..now Ani's "Dead Mom" is definitely coming down with us. Everyone who was at LosCause knows exactly what I'm talking about! :)

    Let us know when your next meeting is, because we are going to plan a trip down for it. I'm assuming there once a month. Right now ours are every other Friday cause we want to get this thing official asap.

    And if you ever manage a LightSaber training on a Sat afternoon, or Early (very early) Sun afternoon, we would also like to get down for that. Ani and I are pretty good at wacking each other. And both are learning live steel fighting. But, definitely can always use another eye to check us and give us pointers. Plus costume workshops, etc.

    So, watch out..here we come.. you have been warned!
