    Oh well, I didn't win that one either. In fact I didn't understand the contest in the paper all that well actually. Did you have to enter 3 times, once each week, or just once any of the 3 weeks they had different questions?


    Also, for some unknown reason I did not win the KMPH contest either. I smell something fishy with that one, but oh well it's their loss.

    The good news is that I will still be at Brendon Theaters in Modesto for the charity premier that night anyhow, as we the 501st will be working the event.

    See for yourself here:

    I have been forwarded a few emails that my friends sent to the station as a complaint and the replies, which are hella funny actually. Anyhow, I have no comment on this crap, other than I wish I had not wasted my time on it.


    But I am still unclear on that Modesto Bee / Sun Star contest. Were you supposed to enter all 3 weeks in a row and get the right answeres each time? As the questions chnged each week.

    What a slapass, Ken. I can't see how that person could've beat you. No way!

    As far as the Modesto Bee contest, I figured you had to get the most amount of ??s right of all 3 weeks, and they'd select from the entries that satisfied that requirement.

    Well I actually missed the airing of Ep1 on TV yesterday, but no big loss there I guess.

    But I did meet this guy on Friday night in Modesto at the premier. He was actually pretty cool, but by no means the biggest SW fan I have meet by a long shoot. As when he asked how I had gotten hooked up with the movie premier as well, I told him I was with the 501st, and I don't think he knew what that was. And I also told him I went to Celebration 3 and he was a bit speachless. But overall, still a nice guy nonetheless.

    I will leave it with this....if your a huge SW fans livng in Fresno, wouldn't you at least come by this board every once in a while.....hummmm.

    my sentiment exactly. my wife saw me post the bit about the lightsaber...and she goes "won't he see that if he's a star wars fan?"

    and i said "EUREKA, WATSON!" and she laughed.

    Here is a cool little update:

    I got an Email the other day that said USA Today was looking for big Star Wars fans to send in a few pics and a short story of why they are big SW fans. So I went ahead and sent over a few pics and as a PS to my Email, I included a link to the full version of the contest video.

    And I just got an Email today that said they loved the clip and rehosted it on thier site, see here:
