    Hey guys, I wanted to start a new thread just for our club here in Tampa. The Tampa Star Wars Club has been going strong since April of 2006. We just wrapped up our September meeting last night and it was a blast! Thank you to everyone that joined us.

    Our next meeting will be October 18th beginning at 4:00pm in the Citrus Park Mall food court. Members are encouraged to bring their newest acquisition, most favorite piece or anything Star Wars related to show off and discuss with others. We always have a great time seeing what everyone brings out to the meeting. Buying/Selling/Trading is also encouraged. Topics of discussion always range from the movies to Expanded Universe books and video games, conventions, costuming and much, much more.

    One of the benefits of holding these meetings in the food court at the mall is having all the different types of food available. There's literally something for everyone.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Hope to see you at the next meeting!

    Good going guys. I am glad to see that there are still a few making use of this forum. It is a wonderful tool for contact and I am glad to see it is still alive. If you have anything like banners or meeting announcements you want posted in the marquee, just let me know and I will forward the info to the proper channels.

    Thanks!

    By all means, I'd love if we could post info about the next TSWCC meeting on October 18th. We start at 4:00pm at the Citrus Park Mall in the food court next to the Regal movie theater. Let me know if you need more details. [face_peace]

    Already sent it off to be added.
    Do you want to change the chapter name to the Tampa Star Wars Club or do you want to go ahead and used the established Tampa Docking Bay 1138? I can post a poll here for a vote if you like.

    Personally, I'd like to keep it as "The Tampa Star Wars Club". The general public may not understand exactly what it is when they see it advertised as "Tampa Docking Bay 1138". Ever since I started this club three years ago, I've been advertising in the local comic shops, online on several websites and now in the newspaper as the TSWCC.

    Other thoughts?

    Awesome! Are you keeping the forum title the same or getting that changed as well?

    Sounds like fun, guys! :D


    As far as changing the name of the group goes, I'd suggest taking it to a poll/vote. If you change your name, it will be the name for the whole Fan Force Chapter and a group vote would be the most diplomatic way to go about it.

    Actually this is two separate groups which have some overlapping members participating in both. The original group has somewhat dwindled due to past complications. Being that the TSWC have issued invites on this board and some of our folks have attended, I don't want to confuse anyone thinking it is one group. The marquee announcement should read "The Tampa Docking Bay 1138 would like to announce that the Tampa Star Wars Club will be meeting at the Citrus Park Mall Food Court on October 18th beginning at 4:00 pm." We would like to show our support of this group that has been meeting together for 3 years and possibly join forces to enlarge the community of collectors and enthusiasts in the area. In any case my job is simply to moderate and represent the Tampa Bay area here on this forum.

    Good post, Denise. The TSWC is most appreciative of the advertising for our upcoming meeting and we very much look forward to what the future might hold for both groups.

    See you all on Saturday! [face_peace]

    We'll never go down that road again....ding dong the Moff is gone, the wicked Moff....ding dong the wicked Moff is gone...
    No really, the future here is just a jumping off point for the Tampa Bay Area to keep the SW alive and well and fun in our community.
    and see...the marquee is reading more acurately.....
