    I have planned on going to this event every year and end up having to cancel my plans at the last minute ... so I'm really going to try and make it this year.

    Austin Fan Force has tentatively secured a table for the event (depending on if I have enough people volunteer to staff it) and as always we invite you to leave whatever promotional materials(flyers, cards, etc) you want to bring at the table. Ideally I'd like the table to be staffed by at least one person from each Fan Force to give it a statewide feel.

    I will be there for sure. I believe a few others from our Fanforce will be too. I have some 501st Legion stuff I will bring and I know we also have some Rebel Legion stuff too. We will have to see if we want to make up anything for the Houston fanforce to take up there. I can take it with me when I go. I made some flyers for ApolloCon that I can take if nothing else. Fan Days will be great.

    We 3 are going also. I still have the static board from Apollo Con. We can use it "as is" or we can tweek it.

    I found a rate of $29/night at the La Quinta Inn in Plano that is only about 3 miles from the convention center. You can either book it through the La Quinta Inn site itself or hotels.com. Just FYI.

    Leslie and I (and our friends) will be at the Courtyard Marriott, just down the road from the convention center. Last I saw they were down to $80/night. It's newly renovated...whatever that means.

    MidSouth FanForce will once again have a table at Fan Days, and we need your help!
    Sign up thread is here. We will keep the shifts short, 30-60 minutes. I know the schedule hasn't been released yet but this way we'll have an idea of who can help. Even if you just stop by for 10-15 min it will give those working the table an opportunity to take a bathroom break and stretch their legs. :) FanForce CRs: Bring promotional materials for your group! Even if you don't volunteer for the table, it's still for ALL FanForces in MidSouth; we can't promote your group if we don't have flyers, business cards, etc. If you have a banner, bring it! We'll try to work it in somehow.

    DOn't know about the con? Find out all about it right here!

    Hey folks. I'm bringing my 8 year-old son in from out-of-state for this event. We have no experience with any of these kind of things. Can you give me some tips and ideas on what to expect? Should I buy the VIP/Priority passes? Should we plan on all day? Charges for the autographs, how much do they typically run? Is the breakfast a must?

    My son will be thrilled with whatever we do I'm sure, but I don't want to get there without any idea of what's going.

    Any helps is appreciated.

    I'm pretty dang sure that I'm going to make it, but I'm not 100% yet. If so, I'd be happy to sign up for a shift! I may promote the Rocky Mountain Fan Force to blank stares, so I'd be happy to talk up the force.net community.
