    Sounds like a blast, I'll have to turn up for that :)

    Once a programme for the day has been decided (early October) I'll let you know what it is in case you're wondering what's on.

    Mixo, I'm not sure we've met before so be sure to introduce yourself to me.

    I think I'll be out for that as well unfortunately, quite busy with work right through October.

    But be sure to get all the kids along to Uncle Mixo's playpen so they can be well indoctrinated: I expect drinks on the town before the year is through!

    Hurt??? What exactly are you expecting? :)

    Actually children are catered for because we have a dedicated kids programme where they get to colour in SW pics, make paper SW characters and take part in competitions just for them. It's a popular attraction because the parents get to enjoy the rest of the show and the kids have a good time - especially if they like SW.

    To give you an idea of what to expect, Skyforce attracts around 60-80 people on average. We have our own kitchen and a dealers room. Aside from the children's programme we also have a main programme which I'll post here in a couple of weeks.

    Remember, the event only runs for a few hours in the afternoon so don't look at it as being like the Royal Melbourne Show or anything. Ultimately if you like SW and want to meet a bunch of other SW fans, then this is literally the only place for it.

    Be looking forward to seeing you.

    I'm the easy one to spot as I do the opening announcements and I'm also the auctioneer.

    The main programme for the day is

    Item 1: Topical discussion. Considering Hollywood these days only creates remakes and sequels, if the OT SW films were remade right now, who would be cast as what character? The rules are - the person must still be alive, they must be the correct age for the character, they must not have been in a SW film before.

    Item 2: Auction

    Item 3: Since SWI is now 20 years old as of this month, it's time for a history review.

    Possible bonus items - Channel V might be making an appearance, Scienceworks might be making an appearance to talk about the Science of SW exhibition next year.

    Usual items: Dealers room, door prize (Force Unleashed game), raffle (R2-D2 stamp set framed), children's programme

    So there ya have it guys.

    So who is actually going to come along on the 11th?

    NO B***S*** please don't say you'll come if you have no intention of turning up.

    The future of the VicFF rests on these meetings and other like them that our lord Mixo is going to arrange for us, so please do your best to come along and make a day of it.

    Meeting place......
    When you arrive at the venue, you walk through the gate and around a fountain, off to the left is a lawned area with a small bench seat, as doors don't open to the general public till 1pm, I will be outside on the seat from 12:30......so be sure to come over and say "Howdy" and YES I will have a camera with me this time to record the meeting. :)

    I will do my best to show up and stay for a couple of hours. Can't promise anything more than that, sorry; deadlines are very tight this month. :(

    Like I said, I really am sorry I won't be able to get along to this. Next meet I hopefully won't be in another state :p


    Edit: Uh, also, just being an exmod here, but you really have to star that whole 'S' word out, LV. The B word you don't have to, I'm pretty sure :p

    If driving to the venue, there is plenty of parking but don't park on the side of the venue as that is for a limited time only. The other side of the road (the park side) is open season as is around the corner.

    For PT people, the tram runs right up Royal Parade and the stop is the nearest one to Leonard St. Then it's simply a one block walk in the direction of the Zoo to get to The Avenue.

    All too easy.
