    Okay folks, it's that time once again.

    The meeting this Saturday is going to be our most important so far. It is essential that everyone attend, especially if you want to make your voice heard on any of the matters dealing with the line for Episode II and for Celebration II.

    The meeting will be at the usual place at Half Priced Books on Northwest Highway and 75, and will be between 2-3:30. It's going to be a little longer this time, because for the people going to the Celebration, we're going to talk about our plans after the general meeting.

    After that, we're planning on going to Dave and Busters on Walnut Hill.

    Once again, if you have any interest in going to Celebration II--please attend.

    It's going to get bigger and bigger from here on out, folks, and everyone that wants to have an opinion needs to be there.

    I'm trying to see if the hubby wants to go to this one - it's been a long while since I've been to one and sounds like meetings have really moved along in great detail... plus I have been wanting to hit 1/2 price for a while, again.

    So.. we'll see if he's game.. I can't remember if we'd made plans for that day already or not.... I'm not going to CII but I do plan on going to the Plano May con (although I'll hopefully be involved with the 501st and 2 friends coming in from out of town), not to mention I'm curious how things're going w/ the lineup etc....

    So.. I'll see... *crosses fingers*

    Hey, Cynthia! Some of the 501st asked about you at the Plano show! They're looking to be even more high-profile this year than at Dragon*Con last year :eek:

    And, regarding making it to the meeting, think positively and remember the words of the wizened one..."Do or do not, there is no try..." ;)

    We don't want any fans to miss out on what's going on, and it really limits both your opportunities and what we can do as a group if we only "see" you on the boards. :)

    See y'all at the meeting!

    LOL.. I'd told them on their board I wouldn't be going to the February con... heheheh :) I had a feeling it was going to be a small con, and I know they're hoping to get a lot of people together for the next one, so hopefully I can finally finish my guard and join them.

    Seriously.. I hated skipping the con this last time, but what can ya do?

    Sounds like Chris is cool w/ going, but he may have something earlier that day so hopefully we'll make it on time. I'm sure planning on it (like I said.. it's a dual trip... I want to hit the bookstore to look for a few titles, too).

    I will not be there. My parents are coming into town, and only if we are in Dallas, will I pop by. Normally, I would come, however, given some family matters that need to be discussed, I must miss. I will be posting on the paintball game soon, my friend is still gathering info, there will be a date soon. I will be at the campout the evening before the first show. I will be at the AIDS walk. And I will be at the sci-fi show in May. Sorry. If any matters need to be discussed with me, please e-mail me at
    old-master has bowed out....
