Hiya, We Pittsburgh Folks are going to be involved in the [link=http://www.pittsburghcomicon.com/]ComiCon[/link] again this April 2007. We are hosting several panels, a FanForce table, there will be SW celebs as guests (info to come still) and we are working on a couple of 'after hours' activities. I'm posting here not just to invite you guys to come, but also because I seem to remember that some of your folks wanted to do an alternative to the LA CIV gathering. How about we do it as part of the Pittsburgh ComiCon. We Pittsburgh folks have been working to try and increase the SW presence at the ComiCon. If you Columbus folks wanted in on this, it would be hot. If you guys could sponsor/run a few panels yourselves, suggest possible SW guests to the Georges (who run the ComiCon, yeah, that's really their last name) along with contact information, help spread the word about the Con and encourage folks who aren't planning to make the long journey to LA to come to Pittsburgh. Obviously, the ComiCon is much smaller than CIV. As of now, we only have four SW panels tentatively scheduled (Collecting, [link=http://www.sagajournal.com]Tragedy of Star Wars[/link], Costuming, and basics of making a fanfilm) There will also be a Costume contest run by the ComiCon folks and a panel with the Celebs. There are non-SW panels, of course, run by the ComiCon folks. Of course, if any other FF groups wanted to put together some panels or assist with the ones we have scheduled, that would be great! So what say you?
