    An enormous Star Trek Convention will be at the the Sacramento Convention Center at 13th and J both Saturday and Sunday that weekend. I propose we meet inside the Convention Center building in the internal Starbucks area from 12 noon - about 12:30 on Saturday. At that point hopefully everyone will have arrived, and we can go inside the exhibit halls together (I have a feeling it'll be very crowded, so I worry we'd never find each other inside the actual exhibit halls).

    Tickets aren't cheap, so save up your Republic Credits. General Admission is $25 in advance through BASS or http://creationent.com/calendar_frame.html or you can pay $30 at the door. Pretty much every big ST star will be there, and I hear we'll find booths from every type of Sci Fi too.

    http://creationent.com/calendar_frame.html, for more information on the convention.

    I'll be amid the tables at the Starbucks before noon. You can see the Starbucks and their take-out window outside the convention center, but there is a normal Starbucks with tables just inside the building at the Northwest side of the new convention center, facing the Sheraton Grand Hotel.

    I recommend you park on the left at 13th and J right across the street from the convention center (Bring extra cash for that too. They charge by the hour normally, but usually charge $5 for special events like this). The Sheraton Grand and Imax theater on the right have a lot directly across from the convention center and Starbucks too, but they charge a fortune.

    I hope you can attend. Pm me any questions! :)

    We have 4 Stormtroopers and a Tie Pilot going on Saturday so far. Noon sounds like a good time to meet. See you all there.

    Hello all,
    Sorry I haven't posted since our 1st meeting. Things have been pretty busy with my Coast Guard work, you know saving lives and all. I just wanted to let you all know that I really enjoyed meeting SW Fans who were just like me. Now I don't own a costume or anything yet. I was really impressed with CA Garrisons cool ST outfits. I'm slowing starting to want to get some kind of outfit. My wife laughs when I mention it. I still need to come out of my SW shell. So maybe I will live vicariouly through my 4yo son and dress him up. He's a big fan of SW as well ;).
    LDV sorry to hear that they decided to postpone your pain. I look forward to seeing you, AJJM and the rest of the fan force. Hopefully I will be able to keep myself from busting up with all the pointy ears floating around.
    Later

    Are new comers welcome? A few friends and I were planning on going to your first meeting, but we already scheduled that day for shooting a Star Wars fan film that we have been working on for quite some time. We are in our mid 20?s and heard about this on KFBK.

    Great I?ll be there. Our fan film will be finished in April and will hopefully be here at TFN. We have been shooting at remote locations of Folsom Lake. We have a web site up with a teaser trailer and character profiles. Everything is at the beginning stages for now but you can see it at www.adeceptionoftheforce.com. I play Darth Bane

    Thank you! It is truly amazing the amount of work it takes to make a film. If we need additional help I will keep you in mind. Thanks again.

    SWEET! Welcome crutag!! I'm glad you heard about us. Of course we'd love to meet you at the convention in February. Your movie sounds fantastic!

    I'm rather proud of myself for getting a mention of our meeting on KFBK. [face_mischief]

    Absolutely bring your kids! :D A few of the 501st costume group are joining us as well, in costume. If you want your kids picture taken next to a storm trooper, bring your camera.

    Wow! We're going to have a great group! I can't wait!
