    Well I'm certainly not new, nor am I in CO right now, but I'll post here too :D So newbies can get to know me.

    Name: Sarah McGregor (Hey a girl can dream can't she ;) )
    Age: 18
    SW Related Interests: I am a costuming freak! If you need any help in that area contact me, or I will contact you. :D
    Non-SW Related Interests: Ummm... hmmm... well I am working on joining the SCA (that's dessing up and pretending you lived a long time ago) Costuming other stuff besides Star Wars. Art, horses, web pages (learning PHP right now, but it isn't working out for me :p )
    How did you get started in SW: I had seen the movies when I was really young, my cousins liked them so of course I watched them with them. But I didn't really get in to it until my best friends in North Dakota convinced me to go see the SE. So we went and I fell in love with Han Solo ;) Then EI came out and went to see that the second week. Was pretty obsessed after that. :D

    I'm still new kinda.

    NAME: Charles

    AGE: 20

    SW RELATED INTERESTS: Books, books, books. Want to get into costumes.

    NON-SW RELATED INTERESTS: BMX, Music, G.I. Joe 3 3/4" figures.

    HOW DID YOU GET STARTED ON SW: When I was way young a friend showed me this movie called Dune. It was great. My freind then introduced me to SW; I instantly became a SW fanatic. I always snuck over to his house to watch it, even when I was grounded or supposed to be doing my home work. The OT was the best movie experience of my life. When the SE came out i liked all of the extra footage all except Greedo shooting first. I saw Episode I the day it hit theaters in Torrington, WY. To this day I believe no other movie will ever equal ANH.

    Non-SW Related Interests: well other than star wars....not much. i like paintball( i got a tippman 98). i am going to try and build some foam swords.

    How did you get started on SW: Well i remember watching them when i was little down at my grandparents house. my grandma was so cool. it was sci-fi time at her house. it was either star trek TNG or star wars. ah those were the days. i really got into when i got grounded from the tv one summer. my parents made the mistake of letting me go to the library an i happened to stumble across some expanded universe stuff. it was so cool and i hav been freak over it since. now i am getting into costuming. i am making a Imperial guard costume and hope to get my jedi robes done soon also.

    Name: Rachel

    SW Related Interests: Besides watching the movies numerous times - even to the point of remembering the lines, you will most often find me on the fan fiction boards. I even try my hand at a few pieces myself every once in a while.

    Non-SW Related Interests: Besides school, which always seems to take a big chunk out of things, I've played violin for the past year and a half and I rollerblade whenever possible. Other than that I try to keep myself, friends and family out of the E.R...I swear they know us by name there...

    How did you get started on SW: This is another place where I show my youth in the Star Wars universe. I somehow got to a showing of Episode II on it's third day playing; it only took that one movie, seen once to get me hooked. After that it was all just a blur. I found myself watching and buying any Star Wars related item. And here I am today. :)

    Edit: Grrr...typos. :(

    I feel all left out...

    Name: Cory

    Age: 20

    SW related Interest(s): propmaking (well, just sabers).

    Non-SW related Interest(s): Acting, Mixed Martial Arts (ie Ultimate Fighting Championship, PRIDE FC, etc.), reading, writing, sci-fi/fantasy, movies, web design/graphics, and some other stuff.

    How I got started into SW: A guy in my keyboarding class my freshman year had these books with him all the time called Young Jedi Knights...they looked cool, so I asked to read one. He let me borrow it, and I loved it (they're not so great looking at them now, but back then it was a little different). I read the whole series, bought the trilogy, and started reading the EU books. Now that guy in typing class is one of my 3 best friends.

    Then I got into other stuff later in high school and was just a casual fan of SW...not really into reading the EU anymore...then I went into the USAF and got stationed in the Springs. And found these boards and all the nerds here brought me back to full nerd status...I even dressed up as a Jedi one time ;)

    "marine girls"

    I've seen LOTS of marine girls that made me wonder if they really were (girls). But yesterday I was walking out of the Post office on base and I saw one of those 6pt hats walkin my way...then looked up at me...wow...got a smile and a hi and I was happy for the rest of the day. I couldn't believe I saw that face under a Marines hat, lol. (now I'm sure I'll get flamed for my sexist post, but so be it...that girl was beautiful!)
