    Hello, my name is Jennifer and i just wanted to introduce myself.
    I have loved SW since i was 5yrs old when i saw ANH in 77. I have lurked
    on a few different forums off/on for a while, but just recently joined TFN and found
    the Houston fanclub. Anyway, sounds like a nice group of people here, what all do you guys do at the monthly get togehters?? Hope to come to the next one myself.

    Hello. Just getting my feet wet around here.

    Question- do you guys have meetings, charity projects or other things that aren't on Saturdays? I work on Saturdays but I'd like to make it to some meetings.

    batbunny, I dunno about FanForce charity events, but the 501st does attend such events from time to time. The next one is coming up soon; an appearance at Mall of the Mainland's safety day.

    If you're interested in joining the 501st, go by the Star Garrison forums: www.stargarrison.com/forums

    Hi everyone. I'm 36 and I've been a Star Wars fan since I saw ESB in the theater back in 1980. I've gotten into the fandom since ROTS, when a rabid plot bunny bit me and I've been working on my fanfiction story ever since. I just finished it (link in my sig.) It's an account of the events of the OT from Anakin/Darth Vader's point of view. I've been active on the fanfiction boards here for a few months. I just thought to look for a Houston board, and I'm glad to see there is one! Anyone else here write fanfic?

    I just finally got around to looking in the FF forums and I thought I'd say hi. I'm 29 and was born and raised here in Houston. So...hi all :)

    Hey all, it's been a while but I'm back and looking to get more active again. I had just discovered the existence of the Fan Force group here a year ago when I was pulled away on business so I never got the chance to do more than get my feet wet.

    For those that don't remember (or don't know) I'll sum m'self up; I'm 35, been a fan since Star Wars hit the theatres back in the seventies (forgive me, but I have to resist calling it "A New Hope" just on general principle.. darn it Han shot first George!) and I'm a fan still. I love the expanded universe as well as the movies and just got my brand spanking new trooper armor kit. Whoo hoo! I just bought a new house though so it's going to be a while before I can get it put together.

    Speaking of which; are there any members of the Fightin' 501st that might be willing to lend their experienced assistance in the assembly process?

    Hello everyone. I just joined this group and wanted to introduce myself. It's great to be here and I hope to meet other SW fans in the Houston area, especially other costumers.

    Hey,

    I'm a long-time Star Wars fan (I run erikstormtrooper.com) who's just moved to Houston from New Orleans.

    Since I really don't know anyone here in Houston, I thought the SCTF would be a good way to meet some new people.

    Are there still regular meetings on the second saturday of each month?

    Later,
    Erik

    I joined this group awhile back but didn't realize everyone posted on the JC board. Would love to meet everyone at a meeting. Anyone going to C4?

    I would love to go to C4, but I don't think I can pull it off. I have two trips to Florida next year.

    We need to get some stuff to do so that we can all meet each other.

    ApolloCon is coming up at the end of June. I've never been to a Houston convention, so I have no idea how they do here.
