    I noticed that the Star Wars guest page for the Comicon says that they will be appearing on Friday from 4-5pm in the Radison Showroom.
    Link

    Is this something in addition to the signing that they will be doing?

    Have you been to the Con in the past? If not it's kind of like a Q&A with them. They tell stories and junk for an hour or so.

    This will be the first time for me at the Comicon. Will they also be there on Saturday?

    Yes, but the panel is a friday only thing by the looks of it. I'm sure Chris would know better for sure.

    It looks like some folks from the Boston, Buffalo, Rochester, and Shenandoah Va fan force groups are coming to the Banquet. I recently sent invites to the city reps for some of the closer groups who don't fall under the northeast (Ohio, Chicago, Detroit, etc.)

    I will be posting invites onto the active boards of some of the northeast groups whose city reps did not post the info I sent them.

    Got this in the email this morning.

    â?¢ Star Wars Fans can also add to their excitement with the addition of Star Wars Artists:
    Matt Busch and Sarah Wilkinson to the Comicon Guest List.
    Matt has generously offered to donate 10, YES 10 Star Wars paintings to this year's Charity Auction. Keep watching the auction page on the website for preveiws of auction items.

    Think we should invite the SW artists to the banquet?? We could add a $1 raffle or 50/50 to the banquet (in addition to the door prize) to help cover the cost of guests . . .


    There is also going to be a Friday night FanForce Social at Grazie Restaurant & Lounge at 8PM. Its a nice little place, decent food, not pricey, and a bar, with live band on Friday nights. I made a reservation for 25 people, everyone pays for their own stuff. Just something for folks coming in on Friday to do that evening.

    Krash,

    I recently sent the Cleveland CR a message about the Banquet. At least, I think Don is the CR? Anyway, Cleveland is most certainly invited to the Fan Force Awards Banquet gettogether.

    Please PM about the SW celebs thing.

    If anyone wants a copy of the donation request letter that I am using, please send me a PM and I'll email it to your along with the SWAP letterhead that Terry created. I am submitting some request to some Monroeville Mall stores this evening, but I'm sure that Terry will take donations from anywhere if someone else want to try other locations.

    I thought the awards started around 8pm that means your competition is the special edition version of the originals that should be too difficult especially with me there.... I have ways of attracting "attention"
