    10am - 5pm www.portlandcomicbookshow.com
    Dark Side Troopers will be there, plus have a backdrop for pictures.
    There lots of good Comic Book artists, writers, and tons of stuff to buy. I Always find some Star Wars stuff there.
    I'll have Oregon FanForce fliers to put out at the media table near the front doors, hopefully that will draw in new members.
    See you there.

    Well let's discuss this. We can either just plan meeting there, or we can plan and have a meeting, to plan something for the comic book show. We can get together before hand make a plan. Now, we can possibly get the OFF insignia on a shirt as well. I think we need to get our ideas together and what we can do make a date to meet up and then discuss it to wear shirts, your fliers and other such stuff and ideas. So, do shall we have a meeting?

    Check the link that Eric provided. I am sure it will give a breakdown of admission costs.

    Thanks, guys. It's not just the admission cost, though. I mean, what's the fun of a comic book show if you can't buy anything? I'll make it to the next one!

    It says that admission is $7.00 for ages 8 and older. Which is perfect, since my son does not turn 8 until April 15th !![face_dancing]

    Well considering it is the only that I have that isn't in a state of disrepair, or incomplete. Yeah, I will be the officer.

    Comic books are awesome though I never have had a chance to expand my geekdom in that area. I guess they are just too "passable" if that makes any sense.

    If I had a means, I'd go just for fun!

    haha, no I wasn't there. My days of hiding from the fanforce are over. ;)

    Though a friend of mine was there. When I found out he went all I could do was laugh and think about you guys, haha.

    Okay, you guys look awesome! Now I regret not being there.

    Seriously though, we need to plan a "If this is the only time in history EVERYONE from the fanforce comes to a meeting, then so be it" meeting.
    I realize an OFF meeting is just not really going to be on people's priority lists EVER... so I think if we treat this meeting as the special "one time only" and "come just this once" kind of thing, then it might be successful. haha.,
