    Plus if you go, you will see costumed members of the local 501st- Cloud City Garrison, and Rebel Legion- Kashyyyk Base.
    I'll be there as ANH Han Solo.
    Hope to see some people there.

    You're going to grow a beard???


    I will be there, one way or another. Not sure if I will be costuming or not. It all depends on what time I get off work that day. So, if I am not in costume, I will be there as some ordinary guy... who will happen to be wearing his 501st varsity jacket! ;)

    HA! Now you see the power that is Beaverton! That shopping center is basically where I spend 2/3 of my days, lol. I'll be out of school at 5:00 and can be there by 6:00. I'll see ya'll there. Someone should make a sign that says "TFN Oregon Members Here" or something.

    by the way, for all who can't come to the book signing, you can still pre-order a "signed" book from Powells, via www.powells.com.

    I e-mailed Powells Books to get more information on the event, and they responded as follows:

    ------------

    Thanks for your email. Our event with Timothy Zahn will last
    approximately an hour. Usually our events consist of 30-40 minutes of
    reading/presentation and 10-15 minutes of Q&A. The booksigning will
    follow that. You don't need to pre-order books as we will plenty on
    hand at the reading. At this time I am not aware of any signing limitations.
    Feel free to bring books from home to get signed, but we may have to
    announce signing rules at the start of the event. We should have plenty
    of seating for everyone as we're expecting approx 50-70 attendees.

    The Rebel Legion will be present in costume at the event, but you're
    welcome to come in costume as well.

    Enjoy the event,
    Michal

    I will likely not be in costume, but if there are anyone who will be in a costume who needs a spotter, I will be there.

    For anyone who has not met me yet, I will be the good looking one [face_laugh]

    Just kidding,
    I'm in my late 30's, about 5'10", 155 lbs,
    Brown hair with a long pony tail, and glasses.

    Again,.....the good looking one :cool:

    I can't wait to see everyone there.

    P.S.
    If I remember, I will bring a sign that says "Oregon FanForce Here"

    I went in there today and there was no mention of him anywhere in the store, and the employee I asked told me he had no idea what I was talking about.

    What can I say....it is scheduled, it's on the Powells web site, and I verified the info through e-mail with Powells. I plan to be there. If you call and ask to speak to a manager, I'm sure they will give you all the info.
