    oh yeah, will we have our new shirts ready for the party? If not, I highly recommend wearing our Cantina shirts for the party.

    TK, try to get me my Jedi outfit for the party too, btw, I'd like to wear my robe w/my club or Cantina shirt.

    Sorry, Ceph...I haven't even dropped off the art with my graphics guy yet. Actually, I think Jim & I have one more session together before the art is complete, and scheduling has been tough lately! So, I'm pretty sure it ain't happening for the 17th...But hey...I think the CANTINA shirts would be cool, and a buddy of mine - one of the future MANCHESTER MANDALORIANS - will be dressing like a Jedi as well! Talk to ya soon...

    I'd love to go guys but unfortunately I can't make it because something has come up. I really hate to let the group down because I know how important this is to the group. Oh by the way I have a question about my signature because I've been thinking about changing it. I remember jim saying that I was the archeologist specialist but I came up with some other ones. The first one is archeology specialist or there's either archeology officer or archeologist officer. What do you guys think.

    Archeologist Specialist sounds good. You might also consider Advanced Recon Scout (since that is also something that you do for us ;)) or something along that line :)

    It also looks that I won't be able to make it Sept. 17 due to work commitments. I hope someone will be taking pics that can be put on the site!

    okay, I reworked my schedule at work so that I can go to the Empire Strikes Boston party!

    I wanna try to remember to bring my video camera to the party so we can show it off at the next meeting.

    Cephas: Yeah, I'll be bringing my camcorder as well, Ceph...better to have two...Plus, I'll be vending probably a good part of the time, so my camera work will be limited (although, Jim W. and my buddy Mike F. will be helping out in that department!). Most important thing Ceph: REMEMBER TO CHARGE YOUR BATTERIES!!

    Baron: I think you mean November 17th! I'll just add that to the list we discussed... :)

    SithapprenticeDJ: Personally, I really, really like "Advance Recon Scout" as opposed to the other titles...I think it really captures what you do as far as finding the merchandise we all crave, and it sounds far more adventurous than "Archeologist Specialist"...Don't you agree?

    I love the title and that's the one I think I'm going with. When I saw it I said "I like it."

    Hi Guy's!
    I'll be there with bell's on. I'll look so cute. ;) Has anyone worked out a time when and where we are meeting? Also anyone looking to drive? I can but I'm not that good with where stuff is in town? So for those of us not going in with Rik maybe the train? That way we dont get lost & dont have to pay $$$ big bucks to park. Well just let me know I'm sure I'll talk to most of you guy's this week.
    See Ya!!

    Well, I'm loading up the car tonight, and since I'm probably going to be leaving directly from work (Andover), I won't be much help in the offering rides department...Actually, Jim W. and my pal (and future MANCHESTER MANDALORIAN) Mike F. are probably going to meet me in Andover to jump in with me, so...And I have no idea where it is...I'm just going to "Yahoo Map" it and keep my fingers crossed!

    I am, however going to try to get there for 7:00 PM, even though the event starts at 9:00 PM. I had a couple customers come in to the shop today who are involved in the event, and I hear they have pretty good food at AN TUA NUA, so we can eat and have time to set up my vending area...Hope to see you all there!! I have a great feeling about this night...I think we're going to have a great evening with new friends...

    OK. So why don't the rest of us meet somewhere for 6:30? Then we can either hop on the train, or carpool together.

    We also need the address and location, and if we carpool, someone better like driving Boston - and that ain't me! We could park at a garage and then get a taxi from there.

    We need to decide this before we leave for the party.

    I'll be at work all day so I won't be online. Someone please call me and let me know what we're doing and where we're meeting. My number is: 603-943-2887

    TK, don't forget my cloak!

    I am freaking excited for tonight! 8-D I'm bringing my video camera too, wheeeeeeeeee! I hope to see a breakdancing stormtrooper. :p heheee

    Rik, your meet is posted. However I would recommend that your next meeting not be in a nightclub. Fanforce likes to promote family gatherings that anyone at any age can attend. the nightclub restricts that.
    Just so you know for the next meeting :)
    Good luck

    Strawbary...You don't need to worry about too many more bar meets for the MANCHESTER MANDALORIANS. This event sorta landed in our laps and it just seemed to make sense that since 4 or 5 of us were going, that we have this count as our 2nd preliminary meet on the path to becoming official Fan Force...

    I took my video camera and got some footage. Last night I edited them all together to blend what we saw into a more cohesive video. What's worth seeing from the footage comes up to about 10 minutes of raw footage. Then I also have a couple dozen awesome shots from my digi camera. I'm gonna be posting these pics on my website including a few I doctored to look really cool.

    if you don't see the pics on the front page yet, wait a day or two.

    Hi Guy's,
    It was a great time Monday, sorry more people did not get to go.
    Hey Rik, how long did it take you guy's to get out of Boston....LOL!! HAHAHAHAHA!! Oh, my was that ever funny!!! :)

    FIRST OFF: The reason I believe we can count it as a meeting is that before the party started. LOL. The bar with is also a restaurant was open to the public till 9pm. Kinda like, say chilli's. That's where we meet 2 hours before for our meeting. Then went to the club after. Which is attached to the restaurant.

    SECOND: I also believe we can count it because we also helped out in a fund raiser for the Childerns Humanity Fund of Boston and as a group raised over $100 that night. I'm not sure if any of you knew that.

    THIRD: Man did you guy's miss out!! WWWWWwwwoooooooHHHHHhhhhoooo!!!
    I'd say there were about 20 + people in costume for the get together. Including ours truly and Peter. It was pretty fun. I'm sure everyone is going to love the pictures we all have and I look forward to showing them to everyone at the next meeting.

    Ok people take care.... May The Force be with you....

    SeeYa!!
    TK
