    We all met on these boards, actually.

    I guess that isn't entirely right. Jace and his wife already knew each other. (Obviously.) And Minacia and RedRose knew each other from Star Wars Chicks. And we managed to rope in the 501st members who were also at Vulkon.

    And am I remembering any of this correctly?

    Sounds right to me, Paula. :)

    red_rose (Sharon) and I met about 2 years before our first meeting on the Star Wars Chicks mailing list and decided to meet in real life. We've been friends ever since.

    In May of last year, I happened across this forum right after Jace (Ian) and RosieWook (Paula) set a meeting time and place. I couldn't resist meeting more Star Wars fans, especially since I didn't know others existed in this town. ;) Luckily, I managed to drag Sharon along with me. And the rest, as they say, is history. :D

    I can't believe that next month will be one year since that very first meeting. The time has flown!

    That is exactly how it happened. I had been on TheForce.net for a few years. But I never had the interest in a club. I had been involved with the Klingons, The Atlanta Science Fiction Society, Starfleet, etc. But I never had been part of a Star Wars group. Star Wars was always number 1 in my book. It's how I found my passion for Science Fiction. So, on a whim I checked out the Atlanta boards and found people talking of starting a club, but no one doing anything. I think at that time Paula was the only other person really serious about it. So we agreed to meet. We posted that anyone interested should join. Mandy & Sharon joined us there...Keith too. And here we are now. One big happy group of Star Wars fanatics. [face_laugh]

    Yeah, I showed people at work pictures from our Putt-Putt challenge. To the one, they said, "And you hang out with these people?"

    Yup! [face_mischief]

    And I'm sure Paula agrees with me when I say that there isn't anyone else I'd rather hang out with. :D

    Technoviper's origin:

    A long tima ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

    Technoviper was rocketed from the dying planet Krypton moments before it's destruction. Finding his way to earth, he was bitten by a radioactive spider and spent years in the Orient learning to 'cloud men's minds' so that they cannot see him. Realizing that criminals are a superstitious, cowardly lot, Technoviper traveled to the US in order to find the one-armed man who killed his wife. Now, whenever Technoviper becomes angry or frustrated, a startling metamorphasis occurs: he hold aloft his magic sword and says "By the power of Greyskull!". He fights crime in the guise of a multimillionaire playboy. With his faithful Japanese sidekick Kato, Technoviper fights a never-ending battle for Truth, Justice and the American Way.
