    Well, I guess my effort to start a new Ottawa based Fan Force has fallen out of hyperspace. That is really too bad.

    I knew there would be interest when the last movie came out, then after that, there would be no interest. I feel like I was wasting my time. There were a lot of you who said yes to a new FanForce...where did you guys go???

    Oh well, maybe in 2 years (30th anniversary of Star Wars) the 3-D versions will be out, and then there will be interest once again. Maybe I will try then.

    Untill then..."May the Force Be With You."

    Hey Vader,

    I know for myself that it is just a matter of bad timing, Summer is a busy time. Not that I am making any excuses...

    I know that it is hard thing to have to commit to dates right now.

    All I can say is that I can try ... and I know "Do or Do not, there is no try"...

    Since Ottawa is essentially a University town, try again in the fall. Those same people who said yes before probably went hiome in April and May after exams and thats why you don't see them now.

    Start up a message in mid September, set a meet date for the week before Thanksgiving and then see what happens. If nobody shows up with several weeks warning.. well then maybe its a lost cause.

    *waves* Hi. I tried helping. I would have been at the AMC last Saturday had people actually said if they'd rather an afternoon or evening movie. I'll try again in the fall too if you want. My suggestion: try find a way to get members through the university and colleges clubweek.

    [:D] I know you tried to help Amidala, and I really appreciate it. Maybe I will try at the begining of school next term...whenever that is.

    Folks I want to help but like I said before I need to see some interest.
    I hope that Ottawa will become a chapter once again in the near future.

    Vaderfan I can sympathize...I tried for years for a durham chapter, but to no luck...and the great irony is that as soon as I leave durham several people pop up wanting to form a chapter. -.-

    I will help organize

    We should get a core of volunteers together to start organizing, and if we never get more than 4 or 5 of us it would still be worth it, but if we become active, then it will grow.

    Question: Are there costuming standards somewhere? (Personaly I lothe poor quality costumes. I loke Cannon best, but Non Cannon is fine as long as its good quality.)

    Costuming standards? I think the only standard should be doing the best you can. Everyone has to start out somewhere. And I think most people just go by what looks good to them. Some are all about accuracy, while other don't mind modifications to make it look better on the individual wearing it.

    I meant Standards for Fan Force chapters, 501st chapters have costuming standards posted, and I was wondering id Fan Force did also.

    You could check the costuming boards, but I've never really seen any for just FanForce. the 501 would have them because they are a costuming club, but FanForce is just for any fans. It wouldn't be fair for beginners.

    Understood.

    By the way, Lil_Miss_Amidala, are you interested in getting together with us here in Ottawa and starting a Fan Force chapter?

    If so please put a reply in the Ottawa Chapter Sign up thread

    I would, but the school year is turning out to be more stressful than anticipated, and I don't really have time for much that isn't school or work related. :(

    Were only thinking once a month for a few hours at most, as few as 3 times a year, and you get friends and party invitations out of it :)
