    Hello Midwest! I?m Jedi_Dajuan, St. Louis? Co-CR and I am reviving the Midwest Newsletter. The goal of the newsletter is to keep one another up to date on the comings and goings of the Midwest Fan Force chapters. It will contain event updates, as well as changes in the Fan Force hierarchies, and other big announcements. Feel free to PM me, or post here, anything you would like listed in the newsletter. The official draft of the newsletter will be posted in the Mid West Regional Discussion board, Fan Force Activities board, and each Midwest Fan Force board.

    My ultimate goal is to have monthly newsletters with weekly or biweekly updates to them. We shall see what happens with that, depends on Darth Real Life and what I get from all of you. I hope to have the first one ready by the end of July. It will contain the events for August and September, along with any major changes to the Midwest from now until then.

    Like before, this thread will serve as a rough draft or workshop for the final newsletter. Just post whatever you want in the newsletter here. I will also be surveying everyone?s FF boards for news and events as well. So if I stick my head in your discussions here and there, you now know why.

    Enjoy, and I hope to hear from you all soon!

    The first thing I want to do is make sure I have the CR's and Co-CR's right for all of the FF clubs. Please correct me if I'm wrong on any of these:

    Currently working on putting the August news together. About half of the MidWest fan forces have heard from me in one way shape of form. As long as I don't forget who all I hit I will finish pestering everyone/lurking on their boards tomorrow.

    The Des Moines fans recently met as part of starwars.meetup.com's monthly meetup day. It was the first time that sw fans in the area have met up, so I guess we don't have a CR (have no idea what that is. Chapter rep?) per say. I'm sure we would all be interested in hearing what other fan groups in the area are up to.

    No really, Minnesota is still alive!
    We are just on our new boards at: http://p077.ezboard.com/bmnforce


    .
    MinnesotaJones stepped up as our new CR, and PadawanKate is our new Co-CR.

    We usually have our meetings the 3rd weekend of the month (alternating between Saturdays & Sundays.) Our next public meeting is this coming Febuary 19th at Lava Links in Roseville at 3:30pm, and then dinner afterwards.

    I knew about Minnesota, I just haven't updated this page in a while. The next newsletter should be up before March, Darth Real Life has caused me to slack a bit. Keep the news coming though!
