    I'm from Baltimore and I've been thinking about going to FarCon on Friday night. Has anyone been before? I've e-mailed the people holding it and it seems like there will be mostly Star Trek/ Farpoint fans so I'm slightly reluctant to take the trip. Does anyone here plan on going? I'd like to see a group of Jedi armed with lightsabers walk in and face down a room of Klingons! :)[face_mischief]

    I've never been to a con before. Ponder this, I will.

    I've never been to a con before either. It is majorily Star Trek/ Farpoint, but from what I've heard, The Fighting 501st has been there in the past. If you don't know what the Fighting 501st is, it is a group of Star Wars fans that dress up as Imperial characters and attend a lot of SW cons and functions. I'm sure that they'll be at C3

    ::Snort:: I don't go see the 501st., they come to see mem {face_grin] and there isn't anyone else I wish to see on those lists anyway.

    I wish somehow it would be decided that Star Wars Celebration would come to Baltimore. It would be a great city for it.

    Well, I never made it to FarPoint, some family business came up and I had to bail at the last minute.

    Anyways, I've caught wind of a convention in Philly that the Rebel Legion and the 501st will be a part of.

    Well, the next upcoming convention is Balticon 39. Unsure if any Star Wars themed areas or people are gonna be there, but who knows. Has anyone been to any past Balticons, if so let us know if it is worth attending.
