I know Jairen has some big ideas for this community and Stormtrooper 1982 has eluded to his vision of what we should become, I just wanted to share with you all what I see as the future of our community and most importantly our Chapter. I would like us to have a significant membership, nothing too big but large enough for us to have a presence at all of the major Sci Fi events throughout the year, all three of the Memorabilia events in Birmingham and all of the future events like Signatopia and Collectormainia. I would like us to be able to attend events and have a similar impact and profile as the UK Garrison and bring the whole Star Wars experience to a wider audience. I would like us to expand our horizons beyond Star Wars to other franchises and fandom as a whole, showing people that there are legitimate and meaningful outlets for their enthusiasm towards movies, TV shows and other media, most of all I would like what we do to mean something in the wider world, to make a difference to people's lives, I've seen childrens faces light up when they've been approached by a Jedi Knight or a Stormtrooper, I've seen grown men smile at the sight of a Darlek, if we can make people feel better about themselves, even for a moment it's thanks enough. To achieve these grand aims we all need to work and get along together, there will always be friction between people from time to time but we must work though that and see the bigger picture of what we are all trying to do, I consider each and every one of the people that post's on these boards as a friend and a colleague, there are times when opinions and ideas clash it's enevitable but we can't let these things stop us from reaching our goal. I could rant on for several more pages but I won't, if you're still awake after reading this please tell the rest of us what you see as your Grand Vision.
