    Hey! We welcome everyone! And don't worry about not living here, I'm not entirely sure how many of us actually do. I know I live in Niceville. I'll wait for the laughter to subside. Anyway, most of us just go to school here but you can stop by anytime and join us for a meeting.

    Hey Manny!
    Don't let being out of town keep you from joining some of our events! I know Daytona's quite a haul from West Palm Beach, but we'd love to have you!
    :D

    Name: Shari (Taswira)
    Location: Port Orange (Spruce Creek Fly-In)
    Age: Older than Ace! (heh-heh)
    Occupation: Wildlife photographer/journalist, occasional safari director & travel consultant
    Favorite SW movie: The original! Star Wars!
    Favorite SW character: Han Solo portrayed by Harrison Ford.

    Since my "work" is sporadic, I play a lot! I am at Walt Disney World at least twice a week, have an annual pass there and at USF/IOA. Have a brown belt in taekwondo but no longer practice. Enjoy trapshooting, international travel, music, movies & characters - from Disney "furries" to Sci-Fi. Always an SW fan, but thinking seriously of spending big bucks for a costume to join the 501st and do events like SWW at MGM. In case anyone is interested - I have some photos from Star Wars Fan Weekend 2004 parades HERE. If anyone here is pictured, let me know the URL of the page you are on and I'll caption it with your name/user name.

    Hey Q! Will you be having any sort of meeting soon? If so I could drop by and give you one of the slideshow DVDs of the pics if you like - - Stars Wars music included, but this is a quick and simple version, not the "full package" that one of the 501st will be producing.

    June 19th would work for me. Can anyone else meet then? What about the other "old" member, "Ace" - LOL. Just kidding!

    Are you in any of those pics I shot?

    Sorry for being off-topic. I guess this should be on a meeting thread or something. (?)

    Sorry. I photographed as many as I could manage - - lots of Cast Members and Guests got in the way. What were you? My nephew, Mike Moyer, was a TIE Fighter Pilot. He has the full TK Stormtrooper armour also, but this was easier to ship.

    heh, it's cool. I'm not that self-absorbed :p I was the younger Jedi with the beard and no cloke (and the awesome boots!) that hung out with the 501st guys all weekend :D

    Were you at Houlihan's on Saturday night, or are you too young for that? ;)

    OMG!!! Why is the only pic of my online the one with my goofy grin?!?! Yeah, that was after the Lightning tied up with Calgary I belive. I was the Jedi sitting at the bar watching the Hockey game and arguing with Esh and Fish ;)

    God I'm glad I was finally able to shave. Sheesh!

    OMG is right! All evening (in fact all weekend) I was asking my nephew (and a few others, but obviously the wrong people) if he had met you or seen you - because I hoped to meet someone from Daytona and because we had communicated about the Yahoo Group some time ago (Yes - I am the spruce_creek_fly_in one). Now it turns out you were a few feet away from me most of Saturday night? ;)

    Hi Taswira! It's too bad you guys didn't know about each other! Oh well. Is SWW still going on or is it over? I wish I was there. :(

    Whoa there, Q! What was up with the beard? Was there a reason? ?[face_plain]

    Yeah. I was the middle-aged blonde who was yakking with Doug (the 6'8" "That's MISTER Vader") most of the evening, since he is a WDW CM and I am a CDK certified "Disney Specialist" (Don't ask!). I can be shy around strangers, and I had no idea what Q looked like.

    Actually, I thought the beard fit his character quite well! :) But in my mind I had not pictured him bearded and that contributed to not asking if he was Q.

    ha! I was hanging out with Doug all afternoon and good portion of the evening before the game! Geez, so close and yet so far :p

    I grew the beard because, well, most Jedi Masters have beards! I shaved it off yesterday and I look so weird, considering it's the first time I've had a complete shave since I started growing for Musketeers. So it's been what, 6 months since my last full shave? Wow.

    Hi everyone! I'm a new member here, and my name's *jade, but you guys can call me Seven (it's an old nickname). I'm from the New Smyrna/Edgewater area. It's cool knowing there's so many SW fans in my area!

    Hey, Seven! - Someone newer than me! WELCOME! I live at the Spruce Creek Fly-In, so am probably not too far from you.

    Hello to everyone! Tell us about yourself!

    I live in Windsor Hill, so I'm not too far from the Fly-In.
