    Come on guys I know I am not the only star wars fan in Syracuse.......especially since when I went to Phantom menace it was packed with almost everyone in costume! We need to get some fan club going here.........
    Let me know you guys are out there!

    Unfortuneately,I do not live here. I am only here for college. But would be cool to meet a few Star Wars folks in Syracuse, if anyone is willing to give me a ride that is.

    I have not made any plans as of yet.. I was hoping to see what happens here ...
    I will probably see this movie multiple times anyways, so... what are people doing for.... *bum bum bum* OPENING NIGHT :-D????
    I sure as hell will be in the group of people seeing it for the first time:)
    its just a matter of where... I do know that Rome, NY's theater did the midnight showing in 99..(however I had finals that week and had to wait till like a week later...)

    Hi all! Wow, there's a lot more activity here than the last time I was here! I'm definitely planning on going to the first showing, in Darth Vader costume! I'd love it if I wasn't the only one! Anyone know what theaters are planning a midnight showing, how far ahead they sell tickets, and when we would need to get them? Can you tell I've never been to opening night before?!? I took the day before the movie comes out, the day of, and the day after as vacation days from work, so I can concentrate on enjoying the experience!

    I'll try to check in more often these days - good night all! Carrie

    I will call around and let you guys know who is showing what as soon as that information comes available. I think its going to be a fun time! Is anyone here going to celebration 2?
    I still think we should try to gett a fan force here before C2...what does everyone think?
    Does everyone have their costumes? Still working on them?

    :)

    Any day but Thursday is good for me...and I don't even have a lightsaber yet, even a cheesy plastic one, isn't that sad? :) And no, I'm not going to C2...hoping I can go to C3 in three more years.

    monday , tuedays and saturdays are great for me. My hubby is building my lightsaber , let me know if you need one. I have a few plastic toy ones here too. If I find some of those around I will grab you one. I say we try to get together before C2.We could shoot for the first monday in april... that will give everyone plenty of time to read the posts. What do you think?

    cool cool cool
    I am soo looking forward to this now!!!
    May 16th is right in the middle of exam week @ cornell :(
    but thats ok :)
    I am glad to see that we are accomplishing something... the big question remains... where is there going to be the midnight showing????? if we all plan to meet how will be able to know who is who unless we do some kind of name tag thingy... (or meet before hand).... just some thoughts of mine...
    oh one more thing... being that I am a college student I have a very limited budget I was wondering if anyone knew a good place where i can get a cheap jedi costume(i saw one on ebay for $250)=-o
    strawberry... thanx for iming me... i am usually on aim alot... one more question... what is "C2?????"
    and.... meeting might be a little tough for me cus it takes one hr to drive up to syr.. but so long as its like after 7 o clock and a week day u can count on me being there...
    keep chattin
    May the force be with you!

    Mike,
    C2 is Star Wars Celebration II which is the 25th anniversary celebration being held in Indianapolis May 3rd.
    In case you havent heard about it you can read up on it here:
    [link=http://www.wizards.com/starwars/celebration.asp?x=celebration_welcome,3&c=celebrationII]Star Warscelebration.com[/link]

    As far as the movie premier is concerned, the name tag idea is a good one. Unless we do meet before then.

    I was hoping to have us meet the first week in April but not sure if thats going to work or not.
    A great meeting place would be like Borders in Carousel Mall. Let me know everyones thoughts.

    Costumes......PM me for some info on those.

    Hope everyone reads this post in time. If everyone can post and confirm monday is good for them and times we can get it going!

    Talk to everyone soon!
    MTFBWU!!!

    Strawbary,
    Monday is an alright day for me...
    I have class until 5ish but if I left right from school I could get to syr arround like 6:30ish that is definately the earliest I can get there :)
    I just ordered my jedi costume :)
    now all I need is a lightsaber and a haircut ;)
    well things are looking good
    did we ever decide on where we are meeting?
    or what we will do when we meet?
    keep this going :)
    May the force be with us!
    Mike

    Wow, looks like we have a meeting scheduled. Lets plan for 7 so Mike doesnt have to rush.
    We can meet in borders in the cafe'.

    We can go over our website and future activities, ideas on how to build the group, and I can bring my star wars trivia pursuit if anyone is up for that?
    May take too long though. Let me know your thoughts!

    We have to have 3 meetings before we can be an official chapter, so hope this keeps going!
    See ya then!

    Hey everyone. Just found this board and all this talk about a Syracuse chapter. This all sounds great to me, and if this Sunday is a definate, count me in. FYI, im from Rome, NY and work at the Cinema there. As far as I know, There WILL be a midnight showing of Ep. II. This will be in two theaters. Tickets will most likely go on sale 7-10 days ahead of time. This is all very preliminary however. Looking forward to Meeting everyone. Bill
