    Well, the only problem I see with using "Orange Empire" is, I think, because the only people who say "orange curtain" are the ones in LA. I don't think most people around the rest of the country would understand the term. Of course, I usually just tell people I'm from the LA area anyway. It's a lot easier to say that than to tell them Orange County and then try to explain where that is. I usually end up telling them it's south of LA anyway.

    Isn't Orange County famous now because of the movie with the same name that came out last year? ;)

    Unfortunately, yes, I think it is. I think that movie also makes Orange County look much worse than it possibly could be, or at least the people that live here.

    I can't believe I let my friends talk me into wasting my $$$ on seeing "Orange County".

    I like The Orange Empire the best, But i have no clue what The Orange Curtain is. Orange County Alliance is right up there on my favorites too, But if we are going to make a decision we should have a meeting where we all vote on our chapter's name.

    The Orange Curtain is just a reference that people from LA use, or so I hear, when they refer to Orange County. It has to do with the complete difference of ideals/opinions that people in OC have over the people of LA. Orange County is generally more conservative than LA. It's kind of a play on being behind "The Red Curtain".

    As far as the Orange Empire for a name, I would prefer the Orange Alliance (Orange Empire just sounds funny to me), but if everyone else likes Orange Empire, than I'll go with it.

    Oops, I meant it's a reference to being behind "The Iron Curtain" not "The Red Curtain".
