    Hello all!! I see by some of the threads that there is a bit of intrest in starting a Star Wars club. How about an Ottawa FanForce chapter??

    I am part of the 501st, and have 3 others in the Ottawa area from the 501st. with costumes as well. I would like others with costume, wheather they be bad guys or good guys to become a chapter of Fanforce. All we need are at least 3 people and 3 offical meeting to make us offical.

    So, what do you say? Is there any interest out there? And will there be after ROTS is long gone? I hope so, because I've wanted to get a chapter going ever since I moved here 7 years ago.

    Let's hear from you...fellow Star Wars fans!! Let's show some Star Wars passion!!

    I hope to hear from you!

    I was at CII and CIII and the 501st kick butt! Great people, awesome costumes. They also do a lot of work for charity events.

    I think it would be great if a chapter started here in Ottawa. :)

    I think it would be popular. It could be run like SOAP (Society for Ottawa Anime Protection). They run through both UOttawa and Carleton so they can take advantage of Clubs Week and the viewing rooms and stuff, but there are also meetings for everyone, students and non.

    If we can create a FanForce Chapter and somebody is interested in this idea, I'd be more than willing to help with the UOttawa section.

    Hey there liannb! Yep, that was me. I was sitting with bobafett25!! It was great to meet you guys!!

    As for the 501st kicking butt...thanks!! It was a blast for me being in costume and taking pics! The other groups were excellent as well!! We all kicked butt!

    And as for a Fanforce chapter, let's do it! I will find out what the offical rules are to make us offical. What I would like from you guys, is an honest commitment to follow through with this, and to stick with it. I don't want to do all this work, and then have everyone back out on me. I hope you can understand that. This will take patients and a ot of work to get it going!! I hope I can count on you!!

    I would also like to get evryones eamil address who is interested in the chapter. That way, I can update everyone at once!!

    So, like I said, let's do this!!

    By the way...does anyone have tickets for the 12:01 shoing of ROTS at Silver City? If so, I will be there to see it. Maybe we could all meet eachother and all sit together. What do you think?

    I'm just wondering, what would a FanForce chapter do? Would we have regular meetings, or just events? I've been looking to make a Costuming Club type thing at UOttawa, but I'm worried there wouldn't be enough interest. I'd be interested in helping why any potential costuming events though. :)

    Amidala, yes, we would have regular scheduled meetings, and group events. It would be cool if there were more people with costumes!!

    People, what costumes do you have? I myself have a Darth Vader. If you don't have a costume, would you be able to aquire one with little trouble? Please let me know!!

    Just thought I'd let all other Ottawans know how awesome EP3 is as I saw it in Montreal today (trade screening). A wonderful finale to the series and it answers pretty much all the questions left open in the other episodes.

    Talked to the Co-President of the Star Wars Club at my school (which would be me if I had the time), and he says he thinks a few of us would be up for it for sure :)

    Hi all. I've been lurking on these boards for some time, but I haven't posted much. I live in Ottawa too, so I thought I'd speak up! I've just recently got a Stormtrooper outfit actually, and I'm getting some last minute pieces together for it for a Star Wars day with my work on the 21st.

    A FanForce Chapter would be cool, since I don't know a lot of Star Wars fans. I'd be interested in that if it were organized!

    Basment...Hi!! I am actually trying to get something done for Silver City on opening day. Any extra guys would be great! So far, this is what I have:

    Darth Vader - me
    Boba Fett - Friend
    Imperial Royal Guard/Black Stormtrooper - Friend
    Stormtrooper - Friend

    having more troops would be great! I will update about the theatre when I have news! Stay Tuned!!

    Silver City Update:

    I just spoke with the manager at Silver City. he says that we can coms in costume to the theatre on Thursday, the 19th, the first actual day of the release. HE said that we should make our presents known! I would love to have as many Stormtroopers and bad guys as possible. The first showing of the day is at Noon, so I'd like to have you at the theatre at about 11am to get ready.

    So, either Pm me, or email me, and we will figure it out!! I hope to hear from you!!

    Amidala, if you think meeting for Episode 3 would make a great first meeting, then I agree with you. The only problem is that not everyone who wants the chapter will be going to the same theatre. I will be at Silver City. What theatre do you plan on attending?
