    I'm going to stay with a friend Saturday night so I'm changing the days I'll be there. Not sure yet if I'll go to the con on Sunday or not. I need to make sure I have plenty of time to go to IKEA before coming home. [face_laugh]

    One question, the Charity Auction is Sat at the same time is there going to be a conflict? Not mind you that I think I'll be able to afford to buy anything.

    OK two questions, is John Harvard's within walking distance and if not is there free parking next door?

    Greetings, blokes.

    John Harvard's isn't exactly in walking distance (unless you enjoy a *really* hearty jaunt) but being that the convention and par-tay will be in Monroeville, there's no metered parking whatsoever.

    Meaning that parking everywhere is free, FREE, FREE!!!

    Likes free parking,
    Yours Truly

    Hey, i've just noticed my info was stolen... I've been bamboozeled...j/k

    glad to see you folks can make it.

    We'll be partying after the dinner at Terry's suite (well at least that's the case right now) in the hotel that is directly connected to the CON.

    Besides the usual drinking and merriment I imagine we'll have an Epic Duels tournament. (if you don't know, that's a SW board game) We have quartely tournaments here in Pittsburgh. It's a fun game that includes elements of a board game as well as the TCG (the trading card game). Also, we'l probably screen a SW related movie. Last year was Jay and Silent Bob strike back....very funny...hmmm what was Mark Hamill's character's name uh nevermind (might not be suitable for the younglings...ha ha)

    I can't remember if Ben_Ethus mentioned it but we will be congregating at the food court on the Saturday at Noon.

    There is also the BIG toy show convention that is across the hall and admission for that is only $5. Lots of new and vintage SW toys to be had and some at great prices (though watch out for some scalpers)

    I plan on going to that first before we meet up for the comicon.

    If any of you care to join me for that, I will be there by at least 10am if not earlier.

    LMK,
    Sal

    Just dropping in to say we're looking forward to meeting you guys! We had a great time at the 'Burgh last year hanging out with SWAP, and hope to have even more fun this year!

    Can't wait! :D

    What's our current plans, guys?
    If we're going to stay out late, can I catch a ride with someone? I'm not too good driving late at night for longer trips. ;)

    Talon, since Malo-Ha is planning on staying overnight...driving with a Farscape friend?...there's room for 1 more in my car (Kim you're welcome to ride with me)

    As for driving home late from Pittsburgh...no worries! I've made the trip enough times that I can find my way home, even with a busted navacomputer!

    I'll take it, Geoff. When it was a day trip on Sunday, that would be easy. But it sounds as if we'll be there late on Sat. ;)

    Thanks :)

    I'll be driving down Saturday morning. I could give someone a ride but I won't be coming back til Sunday. Not sure if I'll go to the Con on Sunday yet and thats after a side trip to IKEA before coming back. As to Saturday night, if I know my Farscape friends they'll find a nearby bar and stay til they close it. Last time the bar unplugged the jukebox as a hint to leave.

    I think I'd better stay away from the toy fair. I could get into a lot of trouble there. :)

    Just bumping this up as a reminder. Looking forward to seeing you folks again.

    BTW, again as a reminder, I'll be going to the toy show early and then we as Fanforce will be meeting at noon, in the "food court" area.

    So who all is coming for sure? And do you plan on attending the dinner afterwards? Party after that? You can RSVP me by PM or Chris (Greencat336) on the Pittsburgh boards. We need to get a final tally for the dinner to make the reservation for that number (did that make sense?).

    Thanks,
    -Sal

    Thanks Sal! I'm not going to miss this for anything! As long as I get to meet the Farscape and SW guests, I'm willing to go wherever the rest of the group wants to go.

    We'll talk about this at our meting on the 18th...and give you a head-count of who to expect. Anyone else interested in going?

    I told Greencat336 that we are coming to the event...I'm assuming everyone in my group was planning on going to the S.W.A.P. event afterwards? If you didn't meet them @ WRHS or the recent FORCE game, these guys are cool!

    Yeah. I'm up for a bit of a party afterwards. ;)
    Are we dressing up for the Convention? Unfortunately, I won't have any of my new costumes done, but I still have my 2nd ed. Mara. ;)

    What are we to wear to the SWAP event?

    I'd love to get my jedi robe done by then...need some finishing touches, and I'm good to go. Em has got Princess Leia done...I'd love to dress for the occasion. (Do we change for the party?) Otherwise JKOC shirts work fine with me.

    Any last-minute additions for this road-trip?
