    It was mentioned in another thread that to be official, we actually have to do official things. I'd like to suggest that, if possible, some of us could get together at the Pittsburgh Comicon in Monroeville. They're held every year, usually on a 3 day weekend (Fri, Sat, and Sun) in March or April, and they're alot of fun. They're even semi-Star Wars related; David Prowse was there a few years ago signing autographs, and Shannon Baksa (the Mara Jade model) was there last year. They also usually have a bunch of artists from various Star Wars comics and magazines, not to mention tons of SW merchandise for sale. Movies and anime are shown throughout the day, and maybe afterwards we could go to a restaurant and/or catch a movie.

    Has anyone here been to a Comicon in Monroeville in recent years? Would anyone like to go to the next one? It's still a few months away, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.

    I possibly would go. That is a good place to unload a lot of the stuff I don't want anymore.

    Ok, I just saw a print ad for the show. It'll be held on April 27th, 28th, and 29th at the Pittsburgh Expomart in Monroeville (right next to the Monroeville Mall).

    Shannon Baksa is scheduled to be there again. I met her last year and took some pics with her, and she's really nice. Matt Busch, a painter who's work has appeared in the Star Wars Insider mag, and Mark Schultz, who wrote a few Star Wars comics, will also be there.

    More details can be found at www.pittsburghcomicon.com

    That would be cool. Tickets are cheap if you have student IDs. That was the best thing about dropping out of Penn State, ... keeping my ID. :) My friend and I go to a lot of games seeing we are hockey junkies.

    You can get them in advance at music x in Oakland... do you even think we can get tickets with mario back. Your lucky if you can get 2 by each other let alone all of us.... I am still up for trying to go though.

    I'd go but we would have to find out which game we were trying to get so I can make sure I'm off. Mondays and saturdays are pretty open for me.
