    Fan Force members,

    The Birmingham, AL chapter of FanForce is alive and kicking! So, why no posts here, you ask? Our club leaders normally post bigger events here to make sure we are reaching a blanket audience. However, we operate from our own website at SWSyndicate.com.

    *Ahem* With that said, visit our website for the most up to date news on Birmingham-area happenings in the Star Wars community.

    MTFBWY!
