Has anyone work on the OFF history since my last post. I know that Brook said that he wanted to put some time into it. I?ve added the most recent history since March 2006, but we still need to construct the history from August 2003 through March 2006, and maybe bulk up the history prior to August 2003. I will also find more time to work on this. This is what I have to date (please feel free to make edits/changes as needed): ---------------------------- Founding Members of the Oregon/Portland FanForce includ: Imperial Jedi, Bowen, Erik... May 25, 2002 Portland Meeting, Broadway Metroplex, Downtown. Organized by WinduWasher May 26, 2002, JediWookie (became Co-City Rep, Portland, Oregon), started the discussion of having a Chapter in Portland. Helped by ImperialJedi and Bowen June 11, 2002, FanForce get together to watch AOTC at Evergreen Parkway theater. Organized by JediWookie and Bowen. Four attended: JediWookie, Bowen, ImperialJedi and WinduWasher August 31, 2002, Portland had its third official meeting. Now they can become a FanForce Chapter. September 1, 2002, Portland FanFance (tentative name) becomes official. Bowen becomes City Rep. Stateless becomes Vice Rep. September 4, 2002, discussion of proposed FanForce names begins....Portland FanForce vs. Oregon FanForce. September 20, 2002, Jedi_Nailbiter starts poll to select name of Chapter. Portland FanForce wins out (35%), Oregon FF and PDX FF tied for second (20% each), Kaminoan Paradise/Forest Force/Fan Forest in forth (15%), and 10% other. February 25, 2003, Bowen steps down as City Rep. and JimSideous becomes "Interim City Rep". March 21, 2003, Portland FF meeting. JimSideous, JawaFett, BeccaFett and Vengeance in attendance. March 24, 2003, JimSideous and Mara_Jade_Fan (RSA) officially changed the chapter name from Portland FanForce to Oregon FanForce. The name of the chapter was changed because it seemed inappropriate to continue calling your group the "Portland FanForce" when many of your members do not live in Portland. JimSideous agreed to be the permanent Chapter Rep of Oregon state providing that when someone else was willing and able to take over the Portland FanForce, that he would be made Chapter Rep of the Salem OR Fanforce. August 23, 2003, JawaFett becomes interim Chapter Rep. (HISTORY GAP) March 18, 2006, Portland OFF meeting at ?It?s a Beautiful Pizza? in Portland. Organized by GrumpyDevil. In attendance: GrumpyDevil and Tiger, Ayn & Bill, JawaFett, Crashdown & Blue, and AugiBenDoggie. This meeting is the start of a fairly active OFF group in Portland. May 21, 2006, May OFF meeting hosted by Ayn and Bill, in Portland. In attendance: Ayn and Bill, GrumpyDevil, JawaFett, CrashDown and Blue. June 24, 2006, June OFF meeting hosted by Ayn and Bill. We had a Star Wars Trivia Pursuit party. In attendance: Ayn and Bill, CrashDown and Blue, GrumpyDevil and Tiger, brigandarklung and AaylaPants, XecoFreemoon, Maraskywalkerii, and JawaFett. The winners shall remain nameless to protect their identities from retribution. July 10, 2006, CrashDown becomes Oregon FanForce?s new Chapter Rep, after a long period without having a CR. July 22, 2006, July OFF meeting combined with 501st BBQ Picnic at Willamette Park in Portland. In attendance: CrashDown, Blue, GrumpyDevil, JawaFett, MaraSkywalkeriii and XecoFreemoon, along with many 501st and Dark Side Troopers members. July 27, 2006, The Oregon FanForce has a new banner, designed by CrashDown. It features images of Portland at night, Mt. Hood at night with a meteor, and Multnomah Falls; with Star Wars Images and Charters in between. OFF had a banner contest/poll and there were three other great entries, including entries from Brook_33, GrumpyDevil and Vengeance.
