    That is a very good question. I have thought about camping out myself. But here are some thing to concider. If you camp out you will only be in the line to get into the con. Once you get inside you need to get into lines for certain attractions.... store, autographs, celebs on stage, etc.
    So camping out will only cut down on half of the line. But you could also get a better spot on the inside lines. Once you are throught the door, it is pretty much a foot race.
    If you have 'da hook up' you could have someone stand in line for you. I would only do that for a few people. Try to be fair to those behind you.
    You wont have as much trouble thought since you will only be there on Thu-Fri. Sat-Sun will be twice as packed. But T-F will still be busy.

    If you guys want to waste time in lines then go for it. I'm not planning on waiting in many lines at all. At Cel 2 I never waited to get into the convention center and if the lines for a particular thing were too long I skipped it and looked for a better one and then returned to the one I missed when it was empty and I got to see and get everything I wanted. Nothing pisses me off more then fans running, pushing and shoving to beat out others. I saw gown men shove children at Cel 2 and it was very disturbing.

    I wouldn't recommend camping out. ITS PROBABLY GOING TO BE COLD. You never know what the weather is going to be like that time of year in Indiana. We've had snow as late as the middle of May. Just get yourself out of bed early, grab a cup of joe or whatever helps warm & wake you up & head on over around 6:30 ish if you want a decent place in line. I would recommend hitting the fan club store early if you want any particular goodies. Last time, by Saturday the pickings were slim, by Sunday, FORGET ABOUT IT!.

    REMEMBER! You can NOT access the convention center in the morning through the skywalks. EVERYONE has to go outside & access the two main entries (Hyperspace members & non-members). Also, we were fortunate enough that it didn't rain last time. Remember to pack a rain poncho or umbrella just in case. You'll be glad you did if it rains.

    I survived the deluge at C1. At one point I looked up at the sky and screemed "Is this the best you can do?" (ala Lt. Dan) to the dimay of those around me. I laugh at the rain [face_laugh] [face_laugh] [face_laugh]

    I then took a $50 cab ride so I could stand in line for 2 more hours and buy figs at the only TRU in Denver doing midnite madness. Ya know the figs you cant give away now. (plus $50 back)

    And remember the line party for AOTC. The cold scared most everyone away. I was the one who sleeped on the bare concrete I-)

    OH Yeah, baby. I love me some Star Wars :-B

    I believe Chris & Terri plan to rent an RV and stay in the special RV parking lot. From what they've said in the past at C2 there was a nearby lot reserved for RVs & only 2 RVs used it.

    I'm sure we all wish they could come. I think its almost written in stone that some of those on your list are a definitely "NOT GOING TO COME":

    George Lucas- Himself will be tinkering with the film until the last minute. No time for the fans.
    Harrison Ford-Han He NEVER comes to cons. Besides, if George isn't coming, why should he?
    Hayden Christensen- Middle age Anakin Will be filming another movie in April
    Natalie portman- Padme Are you KIDDING! - Show up in front of a bunch of Star Wars Geeks & get googled & whistled at. She wouldn't dare stoop to that level. Don't you know that she is part of the "Hollywood Elite"?
    Ewan McGreggor- Young Obi-Wan I heard he has a prior stage acting engagement in London
    Ian Mcdiarmid- Emperor Doesn't do cons either WE CAN HOPE that he might make an exception in this case.

    We can still dream that the rest may come.

    I believe Kevin Smith was at CII but he kept a very low profile 'cause he was just there as a fellow fan.

    Celebration at Celebration III -- Star Wars Party Saturday Night!

    WHEN:

    Saturday, April 23, 2005
    7:00 PM -- 11:00 PM
    Hall B, Indiana Convention Center
    Register now



    Celebration III looks to be the Star Wars party of a lifetime, and the Celebration at Celebration III will be the evening that helps make the weekend unforgettable. Set for Saturday night, April 23, from 7 P.M. to 11 P.M. in Hall B, the Celebration at Celebration III will bring Star Wars fans together from all over the world for a night of revelry and fun.

    The mighty Jabba the Hutt commands you to join him at Celebration at Celebration III, for a street carnival and masquerade in the good company of Star Wars fans. Enjoy live music, entertainment, games, prizes, exclusive souvenirs, plus the opportunity to purchase edgy commemorative "Celebration at Celebration III" ringer t-shirts and iron-ons exclusive to the event. Costumes are recommended, but not required. Do keep in mind, however, that it is Jabba who recommends you wear a costume.

    Bo shuda! Buy your ticket now!

    This will be the night during Celebration III to have fun with your friends, meet fans from all over the world, and let loose playing games, trivia contests, and other amusements. Two live bands are scheduled, and celebrity host Jay Laga'aia will take to the stage to entertain you and all of Jabba's guests, and to help you choose the winner of the masquerade. And you never know who else might show up to enjoy the fun!

    You'll find special Celebration cocktails fit for a Hutt crime lord, plus food and other drinks to buy. Face painters, fortune tellers, palm readers, and game hawkers will trade their services in exchange for tickets that will be handed to you for free when you enter the party.

    Admission is per person (kids under 6 years old are free), and includes commemorative souvenirs, game and amusement tickets, live music, and an entire evening of fun celebrating Star Wars with your fellow fans. Once we reach hall capacity, we'll have to cut off sales, although we plan to have a standby line the evening of the event. But you don't want to disappoint Jabba, so order now!

    Scott, did you order tix? The GenCon site doesnt seem to be updated yet... or maybe they are sold out again.

    Yes. I ordered 2 tickets for me & Dylan. Try it again. It doesn't say its full yet.

    This came with my confirmation e-mail:

    Please note - you are in one of two scenarios:
    1. If you ordered your Celebration III badge before March 4, 2005, and requested your badge be shipped to you, you will pick up your tickets at the Celebration at Celebration III kiosks, located on the east end of the registration area.

    2. If you ordered your Celebration III badge to be picked up at Will Call, your Celebration at Celebration III tickets will be waiting for you with your packet at Will Call, also in the registration area.

    To pick up your tickets you must have a valid state photo ID, driver's license, or passport.

    We will not release tickets to the event if the name on the ID does not match the name used to purchase the tickets, or if the photo on the ID does not appear to be the photo of the person retrieving the tickets.

    Here's what each person must take with them for admittance to the Celebration Saturday night:
    . A valid voucher for the event
    . A Celebration III admission badge

    Vouchers will be collected at the door to Hall B. You only need to take your voucher, not your souvenir ticket, to the event for admittance.
