    'Kill them....kill them all!!!!'

    Welcome to the North East thread!

    Imagine the following as the opening Star Wars crawl...:D

    'Darlington is now the new Coruscant....

    Jedi Masters Booth, Ogli and Edgejedi88 now reside in what was the evil empire of Darlington town centre and O'Briens is our New Republic HQ (well - occasionaly - when there is space there - after all - there are only a couple of tables...[face_thinking] )

    We welcome all North Eastern species here without discrimination - Mackems, Geordies or other North Eastern variants (check the map to see if you fit here just in case!)

    http://boards.theforce.net/North/b10739/21856736/?0

    Together we will dominate the Northern parts that matter - where the evil Chav Empire will be destroyed and crime will be wiped off our streets!

    We aim to meet regularly and here is the place to find out about those meets. If you want to be kept upto date, then check (tick) the box to the left noted as Recieve Notifications when you post a message (go on be brave - you are from the North east after all!!!!). Everytime someone posts a reply to this thread you will be informed with an automatic e mail - this means you will never miss the opportunity to join in our meets!

    To date we have met at Alton Towers

    ...York...(yes - some of us have fun and dress in costume too - occasionally!)

    [image=http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y212/edgejedi88/JediJasenDave.jpg]

    ...and some of us met briefly in London at the Episode III Premiere...

    Hey guys - anyone fancy going to this?

    http://boards.theforce.net/Midlands/b10718/21688779/?51

    Entry will cost £9.95 and at maximum, for three people going by car, petrol should cost about £10-15 each. Looks like a fantastic day! More people = cheaper! I can fit 4 plus me in the car.

    About 3 hours to get there....

    Cool JPL!

    Darlo is the place we seem to 'hang out' and mostly nearest to us all - not too far from Boro eh? Look forward to meeting up!

    Dear all, can we confirm a date for the next meet please in Darlo (pending pay packets, days off, et all...) :confused:

    Get posting!

    Hi Bass Bin - welcome on board and glad you found our thread in the midsts of the North! =D=

    Newcastle is a great place to hang out - and has Forbidden Planet too! I was there the other day - they have the new range of M&M Star Wars plush toys in - the Chewie is awesome! [face_dancing]

    Anyone for a Newcastle meet on the 20th then this time, or is Darlo more central for all (but swap Forbidden Planet for Primark..:( )?

    Cast yer votes below!

    My mates used to hate going shopping with me because I always dragged them into forbidden planet and spend ages in there :) Although there is a travelling man store a few doors down now isnt there? Theres a FP in middlesbrough though so im happy :D. Oh and the 20th is actually my birthday so I can't attend the proposed meet because I have made other plans sorry :(

    Lord O - any other dates good for you?

    I guess that at the present time, JM Booth and I are both fairly 'flexible', due to our current scenarios, so its down to your 'busy schedule' to give us a window from your black book mate! :D

    Leigh - have a great birthday and dont forget to tell everyone where to shop for your birthday (a FP catalogue with Xs by the side of what you want usually works...[face_mischief] )

    We're not splitting the chapter out.

    The idea is that a group in each area will look after any meetings you have there and send details to me and post the outcome on the boards.

    The idea is so that when each area has a meeting within each quarter they have had a meeting for the Northern chapter but it means they aren't reliant on getting people from throughout the North to come.


    My hope is that each quarter will have meets and get to know each other well and that we all get together frequently (Like York) as a large en masse meet.

    The last Chapter collapsed due to lack of interest (from what I understand though that may be wrong) and I'd rather have at least one pocket meeting regularly and then do the en masse meets when possible than have us collapse in a heap.

    Hi Dave - this is what we talked about at York, smaller meets, in addition to the larger group Northern meets, but no great formal structures.

    We can chat when we meet (or e mail...), but no more segmenting or else we will have so many committees and people with positions we will implode! I would call it Santas Little Helper!

    Dave - I found that map that I was on about - here it is

    http://www.ffuk.org/Region/map.php

    I will try and make contact with Spike_Thmid, Obiwancon and LordTyranus666 to see if they still reside in our area....the North East could just be getting a bit bigger! [face_dancing]

    Will let you know!
