Discussion in 'Charlotte, NC' started by Jada, Oct 8, 2006.
Welcome aboard Jameson! That's an interesting screen name you have.
Yes, wecome Jameson!
so my name is Adam Frazier - I'm a freelance writer and film critic and obviously, a huge Star Wars fan. I'm moving to Charlotte next month and thought I'd check out the fan force stuff. Also, I'm in desperate need of a job and was hoping to get some advice from fellow star wars fans who might have suggestions or a hookup even?
(by the way, went to the one man star wars event in Charlotte a while back and was warmly greeted by the 501st - got some great pictures with a couple of biker scouts!)
Oh wait, you're that guy from One Man Star Wars! Just kidding, that night was so hectic for us.
Do you know where in town you'll be living?
haha, oh right - I seem to remember it being pretty crazy, ha.
Ah yeah, I'll be living in the South Park area?

How did you get started on SW: Been a die-hard fan since seeing Star Wars on its first run in '77 at a drive in theatre. Never looked back.
Brief bio...I'm a born and raised New Yorker (Bronx) that is about to move to Charlotte on 6/29 So I figured I'd say an early hello.
Wife and I were somewhat members of the NYC MEPA group back around when Attack came out. We actually met online at Talk City in a Star Wars RP chat back in 1999 (yup those things can work out lol)
We've been married since '03 and are expecting our first little geek...uh...child...around October 3rd.
Hey Mayhem, are you still raising Caine? And a sithling on the way? Woohoo!
It's the old Sith Wench here.
South Park is a nice area. We might be switching our Clone Wars event to the Regal theater out there. I'll know more Friday when I return.
I'll look forward to seeing both of you soon.
Feel free to post on the boards. We don't bite hard!
Gee thats not the Sith I remember.
And Caine has been reborn elswhere as Mayhem...hehe
I said we didn't bite hard . . . I didn't say we don't bite.
I hope you all are ready for Charlotte because you are entering the NASCAR, Sweet Tea, BBQ capital of the world!
Well considering I love sweet tea, have a nice black jacket with big old #3 on it and married a woman from Buffalo.....yeah I'm set hehehe.
My sister-in-law and wife's cousin are both down in Charlotte actually as well (Sister is expecting their first a month after us).
We've been down a few times for vacations and simply fell in love with the area. We're tired of NYC and really don't want to raise our child in the Bronx.
Mmm... Sweet Tea.
I'm from Blacksburg, VA - around Virginia Tech, so though we're technically still southern, with southern traditions and such, I'm pretty excited to get down deeper into it. Even though with global warming it very well might be Tatooine-level temperatures in late July

Hi there Trevor.
Will you be visiting Charlotte or moving here? Hopefully not during the next hurricane that is due to hit us.
Feel free to jump on in!
Thanks for the welcome. Once we dodge Hurricane Ike and any others this year, my wife and I will visit the Charlotte area in March of 2009. We won't be planning to move for a couple more years, but will take a look around and familiarize ourselves with the area. We drove through a couple years ago, but just stopped at the speedway and headed out after that. We'll spend a few days this time, and maybe the Separatists will be having an event while we are there.
Until further communications...may the force be with you.
Let us know when you are in town. We always look forward to meeting other SW fans!
Location: Indian Trail, NC
SW Related Interests: Collecting (too many areas to mention),movies -duh!, novels and some comics, oh heck... just about anything.
Non-SW Related Interests: Football, traveling, my family, getting to know Charlotte (new to the area)
How did you get started on SW: I remember going to see Star Wars in '77 wiht my friend RJ. He and I totally freaked out over it and it all began from there. I think my collecting obsession started around '78 honestly. I had a few figures that I was playing with and abusing at the time, but my first really cool piece was an Alec Guinness autograhed photo my father was able to get for me at a business convention. WOW! Now of course back then I was young and didn't have the money to collect much, I just knew I wanted it all (I made up for it in later years).
Before moving to Charlotte this summer, I lived in the Wash DC area for 25 yrs and was a Charter Member of the DCSWCC for 5yrs.
So I'm a manager at the Regal Phillips Place 10 in South Park. If you guys ever need anything, please let me know. I know Clone Wars is said and done but who knows, maybe there will be an event in which the 501st could be involved!
Welcome aboard Paul.
