    While it is three months early, I figure I would post this incase those that do not know about it or new people stopping by can check it out.

    It is going to be held bewteen the dates of March 5th to March 7th, which, as usual, is a Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

    It appears, at least so far, that the "big" guests are Allison Mack from Smallville and Brad Dourif, aka Wormtongue, from The Two Towers. However, others might know him from Dune, Babylon 5, and other stuff. Also, the following Women of Star Wars will be there:

    - Amy Allen
    Aayla Secura of "Star Wars"
    - Michonne Bouriague
    Aurra Sing of "Star Wars"
    - Nalini Krishan
    Barriss Offee of Star Wars Ep. II & III

    And, much of the cast of Lexx! Anyway, the link is:

    http://www.megaconvention.com

    If you go to http://www.megacon.com, all you get is some business site.

    I hope it is as enjoyable as last year was, which, to be honest, was one of the best years ever, for various reasons. I will also be taking a ton more pictures this time.

    If you visit Stefanie's old Orlando System site, located below, you can click on Gallery and then on MegaCon to see some of my absolutely stunning pictures from the last one (note that the quality has been lowered on them from their original pristine versions)

    http://orlandosystem.cjb.net/

    And, for now, that's all. It might seem like it is early to bring it up, but it will, literally, be here before we know it.

    I plan to volunteer one of the 3 days. I'd do 2 days like I did last year but it overlaps with the Florida Film Festival which takes precedence.

    I was a tad disappointed to see Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes backed out of attending. About a month ago they were scheduled, but now they can't make it. Two years ago when I really didn't even know what MegaCon was, the coordinator called me at my hotel to book him a reservation, I made it, couldn't wait around to see him, and never even got close. Maybe next time...

    How do you go about volunteering? If you do, are you able to get a discount on going on the other days?

    On the site, mentioned above, there's a link to Volunteering for more info. You volunteer for a three or four hour shift as I recall and you get the rest of the day in the convention free. No discount on other days, no discount on parking. I worked it 2 days last year and ended up having 2 very cool jobs. On Friday I was a runner for the talent (like getting french fries for Erin Grey and getting juice for Prowse) and Sunday I took care of the line for autographs of the main stars and then assisted the comic book artists with anything they needed.

    Perhaps she could sign your blue scarf? Seems a fitting accoutrement to a blue jedi.

    But really, would anyone really 'be' with a Twi'lek? Look at their teeth... think about it.

    Thats why you have a hippie jedi cut them out with his lightsaber. No teeth and those big ears? Think about it. Sounds tempting.

    You could always just put a bag over their head instead of permanently disfuguring them.

    You're right. Silly immature males. I think perhaps I'll wear my Mature2003 sash to the next meeting.

    Thanks, Ia.

    Hey all, I know there are a bunch of us coming from Daytona (fan force and otherwise). It's our Fan Force 1 year anniversary, so some of us will be there at least two of the three days. Maybe we could meet at the convention? I haven't been able to get to your meetings, but I'd really like to meet you guys.
