Photos will be posted to the club's website. In all, around a dozen people attended the meeting, which consisted of everyone having pizza and snacks and talking about everything from costuming to the DVD to collecting.

    Upcoming Events:
    * November 1, 2002 - Trip to Indianapolis for the debut of "Attack of the Clones: The Imax Experience."
