    OK, guys, we need to come up with a name for the chapter and vote on it before or during our third meeting. So, this thread is for your suggestions.

    Personally, I like WV FanForce, but it's more of just a placeholder title. If another chapter should crop up in the state, or Charleston would come back to life, I think calling ours "WV" would be a bit monopolizing.

    Anyway, come up with some ideas, please, and post them here. Then we'll make a poll and vote for the one you like best.

    I'm also fine with WV Fanforce (then again another cool name does not come to mind atm)

    If I can think of anything that sounds better than "The Redneck Jedi Clan" then I will post it! LOL

    Interested to see what everyone else thinks!

    Hrmmm...The stormtrooper afternoon teacup society? ;)

    In all seriousness, WV fanforce is fine, except i have the same worry about what if another chapter sprung up in wv. Ill have to think on it a bit.

    OK, here's a few dumb ideas I came up with:

    "WV Jedi Counsel"
    "Outer Rim something-or-other" (outer rim because we are stuck here in hickville where nothing ever goes on, and of course we'd replace the something-or-other with a more pertinent phrase)
    And finally, perhaps we could tinker around with the word "Cantina"...

    OK, that's all I've got so far....

    :)

    I browsed some of the other chapters. "Squadrons" are popular, as are "Cantinas" "Rims", "Garrisons" and "Docking Bays". Lots of "Echo Bases" too.

    Just a lark. . . how about "The Planet That It's Farthest From"? :p

    "We're from WV, join if you R2"?

    No?
    I'm gonna hang my tagline off of some names. See what you think

    "Primary Ignition - WV's Home For Star Wars"
    "Simple Tricks and Nonsense - WV's Home For Star Wars"
    "The Bacta Tank - WV's Home For Star Wars"
    "Cloud City Security - WV's Home For Star Wars"
    "The Bantha Herd - WV's Home For Star Wars"
    "Endor's Explorers - WV's Home For Star Wars"

    Just goofing around. :)

    "Outer Rim Garrison"?
    "Outer Rim Security"?
    "Outer Rim Cantina"?
    "Appalachian Rim"?

    Somebody stop me if the whole Rim thing isn't gonna fly... lol

    I think thats "delusions of grandeur" dot....but then again, maybe thats even more fitting.....

    Most of mine are just for fun. Hope you get a kick.

    Hrrmmm...Tatooine toe tappers? ;)

    I like the R2 one. :)

    And squadrons....hmmm...is there any squadron other than Wraith Squadron?
    (I know, i know, Rogue this, Rogue that, I just happen to like Wraith. ) :)

    WV Wraiths?

    In keeping with Fettish's "outer" pattern, how about "Outer Limits?" ;)

    Hicks of Hoth? (Sorry, couldnt resist)

    Appalachian Society of Stormtroopers?
    (our motto being "dont shorten it, PLEASE")

    And considering the weather of this past week, "The Frozen Tauntauns" shouldnt be ruled out.

    Of course, there is the ever popular "dirty half dozen" ....no? :p


    I like "The bantha herd" of all the ones ive heard so far.

    Wraith Squadron is already taken, but a good idea, nonetheless.

    King of Prussia, PA is the "Philly Outer Rim". Personally, I'd like to try and come up with something unique, if possible.

    Keep 'em coming!

    Here's some more stuff:

    "The Mynock Flock"! :p

    "The Asteroid Field" - "They'd be crazy to follow us, wouldn't they?"

    "Kashyyyk"-"We do it all for the Wookiee"

    "The Iron Citadel" - this is from Dark Lords of the Sith, the Dark Horse comic.

    "The Gorax Cave" - "I am the Gorax, I speak for the trees!" :p

    "The Sanctuary Moon"

    "The Tarkin" - anyone who read the Marvel SW comics knows what this is.

    "Maw Installation"

    "The Sarlacci Spores" :)

    C'mon, guys, give me something. :)

    West Virginia Fan Associated Network For Opinions Regarding Characters in the Empire

    I like the idea! But we should come up with a couple of variations!

    Bring it on, guys! What can you make out of WV FANFORCE?

    I came up with this:

    West Virginia Fan Associated Network For Outlanders, Rebels & Citizens of the Empire

    West Virginia Force Addicts Never Fear, Our Republic Continually Endures

    Keep them coming!

    Cool idea, but isn't that an awful lot to say/remember? *scratches head* And everyone would just end up calling us WV Fanforce anyway... lol

    That's true, but that's kind of the point. We can keep WV FanForce without feeling like we're monopolizing the WV part.

    Personally, I like it, but this FanForce belongs to you guys. What do you say?

    My opinion is that we should create an original name other than WV Fanforce. I think everyone's suggestions are cool. It will be hard to decide! Maybe we should have a last call for suggestions then narrow it down to a few and finally have a vote?

    I was looking around "Wild Space" hasn't been used yet. I didn't see "Unknown Regions" yet, either, but I'm still checking.

    "Mount Tantiss"

    "Trulalis" sounds a bit like WV in its description. I'm pulling this stuff from the SW Encyclopedia.

    "The Thrella Wells"

    "The Jundland Wastes"

    "Tafanda Bay" Being Ithorian, I should have suggested this one before. :p

    "The Sabacc Table" or "Pure Sabbac". Or "Idiot's Array" :p
