    I'm new!! just logged on for the first time.
    i read the welcome post.
    couldn't find anything at wisconsinfanforce.org.......only thing that showed up when i went to that site was a quote about "the lights are on but nobodys home"...or something like that.
    anyway, is there an update site to check? i'd like to possibly attend the next meeting you all might be having.

    Hi there! Welcome to the board.

    There is a book club meeting - see the thread - in January. I don't know about other official meetings. Sometimes there are impromtu ones at various locations.

    OT - some of those holiday pictures on the main page are disturbing. C2P0 in a girly Santa dress??? Why is Obi-Wan kissing Qui-Gon? Can I assume he's gone over to the dark side or is the victim of a rapid fangurl who enjoys the slashy stuff?

    Hi Ralph. Welcome. Sad to say that I don't know of anyone who is actively playing with miniatures.

    Where were you living before moving to SE Wisconsin?

    Hey Ralph!
    I live in Sturtevant (just slightly north of Kenosha). Welcome to the board.

    I have a few miniatures but don't do much with them. Most of my stuff is boxed away from moving so much and our place is small. I need a new house so I can have room for my toys! Bummer.

    Anyway, hope to see you around.

    I should be moving to the milwaukee area soon, once I get a job (just graduated from college) in the meantime I'm in Berlin (near Oshkosh). But if I do end up moving to the milwaukee are i'd definetly be interested in group activities.

    Hi there, after years on the boards I've finally managed to make my way here. [face_blush] Figured as I've spent so much and and energy with the e-life of SW that I should also find some real life people as obsessed as I am.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, lived in Milwaukee all my life. Need to find some real life people who share my obsessive nature. It'd be nice to not have people roll their eyes at me when I talk SW... or the TF.N boards. :D :D

    Hey there!

    I'm Lesley and I live in Sturtevant, which is just north of Kenosha. There is a group of people who get together occasionally for various entertainment things. Check the book club thread too.

    What sorts of SW things are you interested in? Several people like to collect stuff, some of us like costuming, etc.
