    Docking Bay 516 and the I-CON science fiction convention are proud to announce the Star Wars Fan Awards. In order to make the awards a success, we feel it would be helpful for all the Star Wars fan clubs in the Northeast United States to participate.

    We are looking for pictures for the following awards categories;
    - Best costume
    - Best Biggs Mustache
    - Favorite Star Wars Themed Dessert (Recipe Optional)

    Please e-mail all submissions to ChapterRep@DB516.com or PM StarFromIHJ or TheBothanJedi . The deadline for submissions is Monday March 10, 2008. Please put "Star Wars Awards Sumbissions" as the subject line. After we have received submissions, we will create a poll for you to vote for your favorites. Details and a link to the poll will be posted soon.

    If anyone is interested in attending, the awards will be held at I-CON 27 on Saturday, April 5th at 5 PM in Javits Hall Room 101 of the State University of New York at Stonybrook, Long Island.

    It can be a fake mustache or even a photoshopped picture. It's a joke award, so we're willing to accept almost any thing.

    The 2008 Star Wars Fan Awards
    Docking Bay 516: The Long Island Star Wars Fan Club and the I-CON Science Fiction convention are proud to present The 2008 Star Wars Fan Awards on April 5, 2008 at the State University of New York at Stonybrook, Long Island.
    The show will present live entertainment, spoof films, appearances by some very special guests, and hosted by renowned Long Island DJ Ken Deep.
    The awards will range from categories such as 'Best fan costume', 'Favorite Clone' to hotly debated categories like "Favorite professional Star Wars spoof" ('Family Guy's Blue Harvest' and 'The Robot Chicken Christmas special' are the top nominees). Expect to view some of this footage and we will finally settle that score.
    Other off-the-wall categories will include "Best Biggs Mustache" and "Best Star Wars Themed desert."
    AeroSith: The Star Wars Parody Band will perform, as will standup comedian / impersonator Dennis Carter Jr. performing his one-man-act: "Star Wars characters bus trip." There will be some other special surprises.
    The show is expected to be a laugh a minute - this will not be a serious, traditional awards show. We promise you will be entertained.

    The Awards will be held at I-CON 27 on Saturday, April 5th at 5 PM in Javits Hall Room 101 of the State University of New York at Stonybrook, Long Island.

    Hmmmn, We didnt think of that. I'll ask our web master.
    Maybe he deletes entrys from the same IP address??
    I would be pretty sure that people wouldnt pad the voting really. The awards are really all in fun.
    Anyone is eligible to vote, so If someone really wanted to win they could get all their friends to vote on their behalf. --Billy

    This was generally a Fan Awards show but we wanted to honor some of the clubs especially in the Northeast since we're a part of it and some people were looking forward to Fan Force being involved. We limited the categories to ones we had a decent amount of submissions for.

    We had nearly a full room that had a capacity of 100 and it wound up not being about the awards but the entertainment value of it. We had Star Wars fans who didnt even know about Fan Force, come up to us later and rave about how much they laughed and were entertained - that was our goal. I'm sure some of them now will sign onto Fan Force.

    It was a 90 minute program and no one left in the middle so we kept 'em glued to our seats! If it sounds like were bragging - it's because we are.
    All the members of Docking Bay 516 worked very hard and we are extermely proud of how it came out. I-CON was thrilled with the results.
    There is already a call out to do it next year. How are we going to top that?

    And the support of our friends in Pittsburgh, Wash DC, Mepa NYC, NJ, and Philly made it all worthwhile. Thanks guys.

    There will be a 5 minute highlight real of the Fan Awards on YouTube soon. I will post the link around when its ready. --Billy
