    I'm not an authority on the subject, but I think @PreludeRM will likely say "come out to the next meeting (there are details in the other thread) and introduce yourself."

    Thanks for the info. I was planning to come out to the next meeting unless someone specifically told me not to. This does not seem like that kind of a group however.

    Hey NeoRob.

    Defiantly come out to the September meeting. We are a pretty easy going group. Just make sure to bring your love of Star Wars. :)

    Just noticed this section of the forums. Will try to pay more attention to it now.

    My name is Joel and I have been a Star Wars fan since viewing the original trilogy when I was about five years old. Now that there is hype about new films, I recently sat down with my four year old daughter and watched all six films. She then wanted an R2-D2 toy of course which I went out and bought for her.

    It's a bit of a rough time right now. The industry I work in is in turmoil and I have been recently laid off. So in between looking frantically for a new job while I study for a couple of IT certifications, I have dived into Star Wars. It has always been a form of escapism for me in darker times, so I'm looking to connect with people who love the series as well. I am not an expert on it; I have read a few books and things over the years and am currently watching Rebels and Clones, but my Star Wars knowledge is not exhaustive. Just looking forward to what is next, and hopefully meet some people who I can go see the new film among when it comes out, on day one!

    Hi! I'm Mara and I'm an alcoholic. Wait, wrong forum ;)

    Star Wars is...well, it's my home. Some of my favourite times have been at Celebration and some of my greatest friends were made through...well, actually, through the JC forums ages ago! I left the forums (real life happened and I had so much to do for a while) and lost my old logins. Probably my favourite thing about Star Wars is, and always will be, the pilots! I got into the EU reading Mike Stackpole and Aaron Allston (RIP :( ) and to this day the x-wing series is my favourite.

    Anyway, I'm moving back to Calgary in a few days and I'd love to meet other Star Wars fans there!

    Yub yub and MTFBY! :)

    Mara, glad to see some others still use the forums. Great to hear your moving to Calgary as we are the only surviving Fan Force still going strong in Canada. Love to see you out at our monthly meeting when you arrive.

    I have returned from my exile and dang it, I just couldn't get anyone to contact me about my old username. The ability to log in to it is insignificant next to the power of the Force. I guess.
    Old_Republic, now that's a name I've not heard in a long time. A long time.

    Trevor is that you. head over to the facebook page as that is where most stuff goes down. I'm not surpirsed about nobody getting back to you as the admins around here don't seem to care about the Fanforce's anymore.

    That's me. I don't really use facebook very much, I suppose that's why I've lost touch. I'm actually surprised that I'm not already a member of that group though

    Hi !

    I'm Karen and from Calgary. I don't know why I didn't look for a star Wars group in Calgary sooner.

    Karen. Welcome to the fan fonce. Have you found you're way to the Facebook page as most of the stuff takes place there. We keep this place alive as that's one of the only rules to be a fan force. I do pout or regular monthly meetings here, but there is more going on on the facebookt page for sure.

    Ryan.
