    Hama, the SRMT is a great idea! It gives all of us in the South region the opportunity to get to know one another better! I personally would love to get to know more Star Wars fans here in the NC area! Where I live, you are considered a "geek" if you like SW. If any of you were to visit my hometown and ask the locals about SW, they would look at you funny and say that "don't understand it". They have this thing about stuff they do not understand. Their unwritten motto is: "If I don't understand something, why waste my time. Especially if it is considered 'uncool'. I am not writing this to complain, I am just stressing that I live in a town where its sports mean more to it than anything else. Don't get me wrong, I love sports, but there is more going on in the town than just sports.

    Does any one else share my dilemma?

    I am with ya, MKA. When I lived in Arkansas, it was the most ridiculous thing in the world. Getting people together for Star Wars was like getting people together for hockey in the South. ;)

    (Although, I do like hockey, just makin' an analogy... lol)

    Now that I've moved, it seems that more and more people in the Nashville area are coming together. Nice indeed. :)

    Fortunately, where I went to college (Purdue), it was almost a requirement that you be able to quote verbatim all three (at the time) SW movies.

    Yeah, there are a few fans at my college too. Even though it is a community college (James Sprunt) there are people that go there that are not from my home town: yayy!!

    However, next fall I plan on attending the University of North Carolina at Wilmington (UNC-W) where I KNOW there are SW fans. BTW I am majoring in Film Studies. Some lucky UNC-W students have the opportunity to do an internship on Dawson's Creek!!!

    I'd like to, but I don't know too many interesting facts about the people in the region. I've asked for people to send me things, but never got any response.
