    This was an awesome event this year - though I was a bit overwhelmed by Saturday's attendence due to Bruce Campbell joining the con. Wow! What a line that was to wait in.

    I've heard rumors of Star Wars Fan Days III for next year, so I suppose we should stay tuned.

    this is a copy of the 'press release' I have sent out to rebelscum, force.net, and ForceCast:

    Just thought I'd pass along the top three winners in our trivia contest this past weekend, along with the winner of the raffle:

    and the winning trivia question: What do C-3PO, the Wampa, Zam Wessel, Anakin Skywalker, and Ponda Baba have in common?
    Answer: all lost their arm; C-3PO when he was knocked off the cliff by the Tusken Raiders, all the rest by lightsaber.

    Trivia winners:
    1st place: Robert Rodriguez of the Star Wars Society of San Antonio, went home with the Hasbro WalMart exclusive Clone Wars Gunship, with 2 clone pilots, 4 clones, Anakin, and Ahsoka figures, as well as a Hasbro 12" figure, a 2002 Clone Wars figure, and an Official Pix autograph.
    2nd : Jesus "Master Geek" Gonzalez, won the Red Leader TRU exclusive X-Wing, a Hasbro 12" figure, a 2002 Clone Wars figure, and an Official Pix autograph.

    3rd: Gary Christeson won a Hasbro 12" figure, a 2002 Clone Wars figure, and an Official Pix autograph.

    For the Raffle, the Austin Fan Force raised $200.00 for the Red Cross of Central Texas for hurricane relief efforts! A big THANK YOU to everyone who bought tickets! The winner of the Clone Wars Fan Days II poster was Lance Huebel from Austin. The poster was signed by ALL attending artists and guests, including BRUCE CAMPBELL, Steve Sansweet, and Ken the Elvis Trooper. A big thanks goes out to all who graciously signed (and sketched) on the poster!

    And of course a big thanks to Philip, Ben, and Mark for putting on a great show, and for allowing us to have some fun!

    We look forward to doing this again next year at Fan Days III!
