    If I can swing it .. I'd go in a minute. They have like 5 differant Star Wars guest on the list so far. It would be a cool weekend get away that's for sure.

    Room's are only $99 bucks and you can get a 3 day pass for only $20. That pretty good. If you has 4/5 people make the trip your looking at only around $40 each plus food for the weekend. that's a good deal. Plus the Fanforce party that night. And the meet and greet in the morning would be fun to meet other Fanforcers.

    Something to think about. I'd be up for it.

    SeeYa,

    A few questions: Is the room $99/night or for the entire show? Secondly, who is serious abotu going? If anyone is, we should put it on the calendar, well at least I need to, in advance. I will even offer the services of our van. Gas would be 2 tanks each way at about $30-40 per tank. If 4 people were to go, that would be only 1 tank a piece.

    I am thinking about going to this one. I have friends I'd like to see in both the Fanforce and the 502st out there. I have all ready had a couple invit's to go to some get together for the group on that weekend. I think it would be fun. I should know by next week sometime if I will be going.

    I can only go to a couple shows this year. So I have to pick wisely. lol I'm working on going to Dragon Con. that is the big one I wish to go to. I'll know more about that one in the coming weeks if I cna do it. I will not be going to the PA. show. If I can not swing Dragon Con than I'll hit a couple small show this year.

    Well sell. I'm still looking for a roommate for Dragon con. It not till this fall people still are not sure what they are doing. I should know more next week? I think...lol

    SeeYa,
    TK

    Oh... It's $99 a night. Just like at SMF If we leave on say Friday night. Drive all night... get there in the morning... go right to the show. Checkin that afternoon. Stay Saturday night. Go to the show Sunday Morning....leave that afternoon home sometime Sunday night. That way we are they for the mean part Sat/Sun. We go to both the Star Wars get together Sat nite and the FanForce Breakfast Sunday. We'll get everything in and only have to pay for one nite.

    If there are 3 other people interested, my offer to drive to Pittsburgh stands. We would be leaving Friday MORNING, arrive that evening, attend the show all day Saturday and Sunday morning, then leave by midday on Sunday and return to NH late Sunday night. If you are interested, please PM me, call me, or talk to me at the meeting on the 22nd. If we get 4 total COMMITTED to going by then, then we go, if not, the mission gets scrubbed -- well at least my offer of a vehicle gets scrubbed.
