    From 2000 to 2002 there were several attempts to start a Portland FanForce Chapter with no success.

    Founding Members of the Oregon/Portland FanForce include: NathanDahlin, WinduWasher, JediWookie, ImperialJedi, Bowen...

    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. (a long and tragic story) 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 the group the "Portland FanForce" when many of its members did not live in Portland. JimSideous agreed to be the permanent Chapter Rep of Oregon FanForce provided that when someone else was willing and able to take over the "Portland" FanForce, that he would be made Chapter Rep of a new Salem FanForce.

    August 23, 2003, JawaFett becomes the interim Oregon FanForce Chapter Rep.

    September 7, 2003, Larena_Jade starts the most successful Popcorn Story to date. As the story progresses Vengeance is stuck up a tree, George Lucas goes on the warpath, everybody turns up with lightsabers, Brook and Larena debate who invited giant man eating pickles to the techno party, Brook clones himself and battles a giant Britney Spears, Ash re-clones Brook with a malfunctioning lightsaber amd everything goes to hell.

    September 24, 2003, Larena_Jade hesitantly starts a religion thread.

    October 14, 2003, Darth_Tokyo attempts to start an Oregon Fan Force collaboration Fan Film.

    April 26, 2004, the official countdown thread for ROTS is started by Kurt_Wagner846.

    March 7, 2004, Portland Comic Book Show at the Memorial Coliseum. Jawafett attends. Other Fan Force members in attendance: UNKNOWN.

    September 19, 2004, Larena_Jade returns from her trip to Russia and ends a long silence in the Oregon Fan Force.

    January 4, 2005, Larena_Jade starts another successful Popcorn Story that surpasses her previous, as well as Brook's Popcorn Stories. This time, they group ends up lost and Brook is taken over by some evil force that wants to destroy the others. The end is a cliffhanger, where Larena frees Brook from his trance, and with CrashDown they plan to fool then destroy the evil force while looking for Atticus. Crash turns out to be evil in the end.

    May 20, 2005, Larena_Jade begins the countdown to the ROTS DVD.

    May 31, 2005, Vengeance, Atticus, and Larena_Jade get together to see ROTS in theaters.

    July 19, 2005, Larena_Jade declares war on the OFF Beast. The Fan Force is split into opposing sides. (Lol, had to include this one)

    August 26, 2005, OFF has a meeting at a Baja Fresh.

    September 30, 2005, Larena_Jade becomes the Oregon FF "Official Embassador".

    November 8, 2005, CrashDown starts the Oregon FanForce Survey.

    December 31, 2005, Larena_Jade is "GOING TO KILL SOMETHING!!!!!"

    December 31, 2005, Larena_Jade starts a "I LOVE FISH!" thread......this marks a very slow time for the OFF.

    I'm sorry Bill. I appreciate your post a lot, but I don't think my contribution was a Historic OFF moment. It's your efforts that need recognition, not my simple contribution. I will make sure that the OFF History remembers YOUR contributions to the community. I would like to see each member of the OFF contribute at least $1 to your fund raising effort, not only to help the Light the Night Leukemia Walk cause, but to recognize and thank you for your hard work !!!

    But at the same time, Crash, you are also doing some good for the community. So, I think it is definitely worthy of praise when one OFF member helps another.

    Just my own two credits worth!

    Nothing much, really. We've had a couple of meetings, but hardly anyone showed - it was JediGunship, JawaFett and myself for one meeting and then it was just Jawafett and myself for another.

    By the way, I have your shirt at work. You can pick it up whenever I am here. I'll be off from Thursday - Sunday, but come Monday, I will be working Monday thru Thursdays, 9am - 7pm. So anytime, really and I can get it to you.
