    Well it looks like the tri-county borders wins for the first meeting. I think what we should do is rotate meetings between the dayton/tri-county area to be fair to everyone. I will send word to the powers that be that we have our first official meeting scheduled! It is done then...Sunday, February 2nd at 7pm our first official meeting will be held at the Borders by the tri-county mall.

    I'm in Dayton but will not be attending. Not when I have to drive to Cincinnati to attend a Dayton FF meeting.

    45 MILES!!!! and I'm in the middle of Dayton. I really hope we get some other people FROM Dayton so we can have a meeting that's actually for Dayton members and not just people that don't like the Cincy group. I know! Let's have the Indianapolis meeting HERE in DAYTON! Yeah, that's the ticket.

    All right now that I've had my wild, screaming, flailing arms, kicking and screaming, throat raw from yelling, fit I'd like to just examine this from a rational standpoint.

    The Cincy group is a fine bunch of people. I've met them. Who else has? AJ is not a power hungry war monger. He wants everyone to have fun just as much as the next guy. If you meet these people you'll know too. Internet posting hardly reflect what a person is like, because it's so unpersonal.

    If you're going to have a DAYTON FF meeting at least have it IN Dayton. If I wanted to drive to Cincy for a meeting I'd go to the Cincy meeting.

    That's my piece. You guys have fun.

    I completely understand your point about the meetings being in Dayton. The next meeting will be in Dayton and hopefully after that, the meetings will all be held in Dayton. Unfortunately right now most of the people in the Dayton Fanforce live further south. I have been aiming my recruiting efforts and will continue to do so in aiming to attract Dayton fans. Just be patient for a little while until I can get more people, But don't worry...The future meetings will be held in Dayton.

    Thank you for those nice words corran and I'm glad you had fun at the Super Bowl party...seriously though things really have worked themselves out, and I don't think that not liking the Cincy FF is the ONLY reason the Dayton group was started, and if it was a part of the reason that is really irrevelent now and I am wishing you all the best of luck with your new FF!

    I have hope that the next meetings will be in Dayton. Meetings need to be held in the chapter they are named after. It's fine to have one once in awhile outside, but the majority need to be there. If you need to set up another city name, let me know.

    I was excited to hear that Dayton was gaining a FanForce, but disappointed to see that the meetings are in CINCY! I was hoping the meetings would be closer, ,and even better for me, somewhere on the north side of Dayton. I live basically in the middle of nowhere in west central Ohio. Dayton FanForce would be closer than Columbus for me, but not when Dayton is really Cincy.

    I am really disappointed I won't be able to attend.

    I agree........ I honestly was happy to see a Dayton FF start up, but not if it's an off-shoot of the Cincy one. That just doesn't seem right to me......

    I'll be more than happy to attend a meeting in Dayton, but I don't know about driving all the way to Tri-County.... Especially since I have no rapport with any of you yet...... Nothing personal. I would love to meet you all.... but a Dayton FF needs to be centered on Dayton.

    I had a great time at the meeting. I definetely wanna come to the next one. Sean had alot of great ideas. I hope that more people show up at the next one though, we only had 4 people at this one. Keep up the awesome job you're doing Sean and i'll try to do my part as well. Peace out my Jedi brothers and sisters.

    The first meeting was a great 1st meeting. There was only 4 of us, but we covered alot of ground. We talked about the title of our fanforce, and we all liked this one.."Fellowship Of The Jedi Order of Dayton". We discussed ideas for future recruiting efforts, future activities and road trips to meet and be involved with other fanforces. I have got a great feeling about our future as a fanforce, And I am very proud to be associated with such a great group of Star Wars fans. May the Force be with you all.

    Fellowship Of The Jedi Order of Dayton...that's got a nice ring to it!

    It's not a system I'm familiar with
    I don't know much about the Dayton/Cincinnati area...but you really need to keep meetings in the Dayton area (as much as possible) if you want to attract more people from the area. We've always tried to encompass both the Cleveland/Akron areas (Akron is close enough that many consider it "a glorified suburb")

    The next meeting is in Dayton, as will all official meetings in the future. And thank you for the compliment on our name, I thought it summed up what we are...A fellowship of friends and equals brought together by one common interest...Star Wars.
