    Cole mentioned at the June 1st Meeting that we need to come up with a name for our group. I'd be interested to hear your ideas here, as well as post one of my own...

    Here it is:
    Sith Lords: Faces of E-ville

    How about one of these....

    1. JOE Squadron (instead of Rogue Squadron)
    i.e. Jedi-knights Of Evansville.

    OR

    2. OVA Fan Force
    i.e. Ohio Valley Alliance

    Either way, the sub message can say, "Serving the Bright Center of the Universe."

    Anyway, that's a few ideas.

    If you care for my opinion :D I like Ohio Valley Alliance, if you're going for something that sounds good. But that "Faces of E-ville" got a nice chuckle out of me :D

    Good luck all.

    By the way, "The Bright Center of the Universe" is the Northeast Region's slogan, and Evansville is part of the Midwest Region. Just thought I'd let you know.

    How's everyone feel about having a poll with all the options for our fan club name, which would start in two weeks. All the submissions for club names should be posted on this posting over the next two weeks, and then I'll post a survey so we can all vote. Just a thought.... Then I'll translate to Imperial lettering for when we make up some T-shirts....

    My idea is kind of a variation on RyskMailan's idea. I think the name should be shorter, so how about the E-ville Jedi?

    I also think we should consider an uncreative, yet explicit, name, something like the Evansville Star Wars Society (or Alliance, or Club, or any of a number of similar organizational words). If we get too creative, we may risk people not being able to figure out exactly what we are.

    Just a few thoughts...

    All these are great ideas. I'll fold them into the poll. From a personal stand point, I think usage of E'ville is funny, but it might not be the message we want to send, especially if we ever decide to do some volunteer work or promotion at a group. Anyway, that's my thought.

    Couple of more ideas:

    Southern Guard: Jedi Knights of Southwestern Indiana

    OR

    Southern Guard: Knights of the Ohio Valley

    I envisioned a shirt with the Southern Guard on the front, written in Star Wars style with a weapon or some other SW graphic, and Knights of the Ohio Valley on the back. Maybe we add, "Protecting the bright center of the universe."

    Yes you are right. All of these are great ideas. I wanted to suggest one. I came up with one that makes an acronym and kind of incorporates Darth_TKDs idea of more obvious, but it may be too long. Here goes:

    Star Wars Alliance of Southern Indiana (SWASI)

    I know my opinion doesn't (and shouldn't) matter, but I like "Forces of E'ville" or maybe "E'ville Empire".

    Still somewhate saddened that Cleveland didn't go with "Fan Force Cleveland: The Erie side of the Force"

    Oh well, if nothing else have fun with it. :)

    E'ville Empire sounds like we're playing Reagan's USSR games.

    Imperial Outpost E'ville is good. We have to use evil in some way, shape, or form. Using the E'ville would at least be original.

    Ooohh! I'm liking some of these new names... I really like the "E-ville Empire" one ... Or we could also use the "E-ville Galactic Empire" ...

    As far as our name being tarnished by the use of such a name, native people will get the pun, and they won't think of us as being truly evil. There are always other words that we could tack on too to make us sound less imposing ... for instance, if we used "The Galactic E-ville Empire" Star Wars Fan Club. That already makes us less threatening and identifies us for what we really are. A Star Wars Fan club. Anybody that knows anything about Star Wars will pick up on the joke right away ...

    Just my .02 Cents.
