    How did you get started on SW: When I was really little, my dad had my brother (Ed, aKa Seefa) and I sitting in the den. We were watching A New Hope, and I remember to this day my favorite part, the stormtroopers were walking through a doorway and one of them bopped his head on the top door frame. I cracked up laughing and have been addicted to Star Wars (and Stormtroopers ;)) ever since. I JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH, OKAY? n_n

    No problem, it's the busy holiday season (I work in retail so i well know). I always figured i would end up joining some form of SW fan group. I do have to admit I have no idea how to access a private message on this thing though. I was interested in hearing how the book group is done though as I have read most of the Star Wars books that have been printed.

    You have my sincere condolences. My niece works retail and we heard endless horror stories on Christmas Day.

    Let me see if I can help. If you go back up to the top of the page you'll see the banner, some scrolling message, a line that says Contact Your Chapter Rep: Jada and then another line that appears as this:


    [blockquote]Logged in as: MrEBeast | Logoff | Private Messages | My Board Info | Search | Options | Admin | Help | New Boards | Rules of the JC | TOS | Faces | Markup Codes [/blockquote]

    I've bolded Private Messages. It should say 1 New next to it. Just click on that and it will take you to the message. If you need any other technical help let me know. I've adopted "newbies" before and taught them the ins and outs of the boards. :)


    We meet once a month usually at the Beatties Ford Library (it seems to be the most central place and they have been good to us). We will discuss the book, any club business and then play a round of Star Wars miniatures or a board game after. I'm going to post an outline of the books we will be reading for 2008 with some special notes.

    Please feel free to ask questions.

    SW Related Interests: Everything Star Wars ! Movies,games,toys, you name it. I'm currently in the process of constructing my Boba Fett costume in hopes of joining the 501st. My goal is to be completed by Halloween if not sooner.

    Motor sports? Does that mean NASCAR? NHRA? or something that includes [face_sick]Danika [face_sick] :p ;)

    Do you play minis? We have tons of minis and just never get to play enough.

    As for the Motor sports Absolutely Yes to NASCAR. But pretty much anything that's moving fast. I did some racing in a Legends series back in Pa but haven't been able to get back into it here. YET We're from northwest PA, north of Pittsburgh on the lake. Lake Erie for those folks that don't know....lol Sorry. :) But thanks everyone for being so friendly, its nice to meet good people. As for the minis, no i don't play. Don't actually know much about them. Right now the main thing i'm doing is the costume and prop building.

    Thanks, talk to you all later.
