    A few notes from tonight's meeting:

    In attendance were myself,Jeff,Dave,Jill,Tracy(welcome back,ladies!)and we had a new person,Ian,join us this evening.Ian,it was great to meet you and welcome to R2-Detroit.Hope you'll choose to join us again at future meetings. :)

    Among the usual SW discussions,which included current and future Clone Wars story arcs,current and future EU novels,and even SW trading cards,were a couple of noteworthy items.It's been widely reported that the release date for Ep.I in 3-D is Feb.10,2012.For those of you who know your R2 Detroit history,Feb.9,2012 is the 10 year anniversary of the first ever meeting of our group.We briefly discussed the idea of perhaps meeting somewhere for an anniversary dinner in order to mark the occasion.Obviously,that's a long way off so we'll talk more about that later in the year.

    Our history may go back nearly a decade,but we also think we have a bright future ahead of us,so another thing that we talked about was trying to get the word out about R2-Detroit.Some folks volunteered to ask their local comic shops about putting up some flyers for us and we're still tinkering a bit with ideas for the group's logo.I was a bit surprised to learn that the Border's where we currently congregate will not allow us to advertise our meetings in-store.Interestingly enough,as I was being told this,a customer asked for one of the R2 flyers I had in my hand.

    That's about it for this month.On a personal note,I wanted to say thanks to Jeff for the donation of books which will be passed along to our men and women who serve in the US military overseas.It's much appreciated and will go to a great cause.
