    I thought we already had one of these?? The only one I could find was last years & it's locked :(

    We need to start planning on what we are going to do & collecting money to feed the hungry geeks.

    I just got this PM from Becca who was in charge of getting us a time, please read & let me know your thoughts.

    I left you a message but I don't know if you got it so here is the skinny on MileHi con. After setting down and figuring out who was promised what spot for political reasons (I am sure you know how that goes) the best slot left on saturday was either 6-8 or 8-10 pm. Now the 501st will be taking whichever slot we don't want. They also said they would be happy to make a united showing for the 4 hours (you know, just have both groups there the whole time) if we would do the food for 2 hours and they would do food for the other 2 hours. I think they are planning subway sammiches for their 2 hours.

    Please let me know if this schedule will work and if you want to work with them for manning the suite. I need to know by the end of next week if we want the slot I have reserved. Since I am with the group we won't have to pay the 40 refundable deposit, which is nice.

    Oh, and if I didn't mention it before. The suite provides the beverages, we just need to bring food. Also, we can bring flyers and all that stuff to hand out.

    I would suggest doing the later time slot cause then we can just bring munchies as the big food rush is over=)

    My two cents: I really want to go to the costume contest! So the last time block would not work for me, but the 501st & us thing would if a few of us could hang out that long. The thing is, if I'm not willing to do it I don't expect someone else too? But I'm open for suggetions.

    oh

    and if we can get this decided ASAP then they will put our name down in the mass mailer that goes out at the end of this month so we can get a little free publicity for our group...

    if we do the 8-10 slot it is less likely to interfere with the costume contest. They apparently are making some changes to make it go faster and smoother this year

    although I haven't been told what those changes are yet, lol

    I would totally love to help out. I don't care what time it is at. I am not planning on doing the costume contest.

    great!!!


    really we only need 2 people from the group in the room so BFett88 and I can take care of that.

    So all we need to worry about now is figuring out the food and literature.

    So since we have manning the suite taken care of, do we want to do this still?

    I suggest we do a sweets table, cookies, brownies that kind of stuff. If we decided to go in with the 501st and they are already planning a big sandwich, then deserts would fit in well. I would be happy to do some baking. Just a thought. :)

    WE ARE DOING THE 8pm-10pm SLOT ON SATURDAY.

    There. That's my command decision for the day. If we did the earlier slot, it'd bump into the costume contes, and I expect a good chunk of us to be at the contest. If we don't decide now, my trooper homies will say "Oh! OH! We want the 8-10 slot!" and we'll get screwed. YANNO???

    I'll help, but there's a slim chance that I'll be 15 minutes late depending on where the contest is. But, I'd expect the contest to go from 6-8. If There are already people willing to work the room before I get there, then it's all good.

    WellI know MA was talking about doing some SG-1 stuff, possibly with myself and SS. I have several ideas for myself if nothing else comes along.

    "The Rocky Mountain Fan Force is a motley group of Star Wars fans from throughout Colorado whose interests range most of the sci-fi spectrum. Its members are also into collecting, costuming, fan fic writing, and film making."

    37 words. I stole JP's usage of the word "motley" cuz it sounded cool. :p How does that blurb sound to everyone? Or...at least SC and JP?

    From the FanForce FAQ:

    FanForce is the physical, grass-roots extension of theforce.net's global, online presence. We're about getting fans together and helping them meet and interact with other fans in their "physical" community. Conventions, movie screenings, book signings, etc., can all be a part of the Fanforce experience. RockyMountainFanForce is the local chapter.


    Remember folks, we are a part of a larger organization.
