The Quad City Jedi Order is the first Fan Force in the Eastern Iowa, Western Illinois region. The QC is made up by the cities of Moline, Rock island, Bettendorf, and Davenport. The group formed in the summer of 1999 and later given the name of Quad City Jedi Order in 2002. In that time the group has been to many conventions and met many people from TV and film including George Lucas. The group has been on every QC TV station, newspaper, and radio station. Some of the groups news reports where picked up by AP and where broadcasted and printed across the country. Some of the group?fs photos have been shown in magazines like the Star Wars Insider and has been on the cover of QC Showcase magazine. The group also discovered some photos featured in a Japanese toy magazine. The group?fs exposure has allowed us to make appearances at many events, like museum openings, birthday patties, and documentary films. After meeting George Lucas the group realized we made it to the top of the ?gStar Wars Mountain?h and decided it was time to grow. Now we are able to continue with Star Wars and go beyond it to other film interests. Like Raiders of the Lost Ark fortified Lucas Film and Temple of Doom saved it. The Quad City Raiders will join with Quad City Jedi Order and present the best of both worlds. The Star Wars film saga has now ended and a new chapter begins for the Quad City Jedi Order. We are now able to pursue other film characters and costumes while still continuing with the Star Wars films.
