Does anyone know if St. Louis or towns near are going to have a SW convention any time soon? Thanks
Well, the only 'SW' convention is Celebration, but many SW actors appear at other general conventions.
Here's a few websites that keep track of cons accross the country, you can search by state or date.

Is anyone here making plans for going to gen-con next month? I was skeptical till I just recently looked at their web site and noticed how many SW people from the movies are going to show up. Now you couldnt keep me away from it.
What's the website for gencon? I'm thinking about checking it out.
duh. I'm an idiot
So you think you might go?
I would consider it, but I can't seem to find any info on the site. I can't even seem to find dates.
The dates are July 24-27th. The admission is $60 I think. The people that played these characters are coming:
General Crix Madine
the young Boba-Fett
Sith Darth Maul
Outside of that you also have the people that played Gimli and Sam Wise in LOTR. Then you have people from other sci-fi shows such as babylon 5, farscape, star trek, etc. They also are having a concert with a surprise guest muscian, a life size D&D game......suppose to have like 3600 different events. It is being held in the RCA dome where C2 was held. Then of course it is a con based on first gaming and then sci-fi and fantasy.
I'm hoping to go, but it's still up in the air somewhat. I'm definitely going to WizardWorld a couple weeks after that, though.
ok, I can't find anything on that site either
where is this supposed to be?
I would love to meet John Rhys-Davies! ...but I'm broke.
The web site is www.gencon.com. After that, click on the link for Gen Con Indy. Then just choose flash or html based pages. If anyone does have an interest in going feel free to tell me. Maybe we can carpool over there.
I'm confused as to where this is. Indy?
Yes it is in Indianapolis. It is being held at the same place (RCA dome...where the Colts play) that the SW celebration 2 was held.
Well, it isn't quite a convention but there is a pretty big toy show this weekend. It is held every two months. I went to the last one and it was pretty cool, TONS of Star Wars collectables along with other commonly and not so commonly collected toys, video games, movies (some not even released yet on video if you know what I mean) etc...
It is 7/13/03, this Sunday.
9am to 3pm,
12365 St. Charles Rock Rd.,
St. Louis, MO.
It cost $3 to get in, its well worth it. If anyone needs directions let me know. The road is really easy to find but the building is kind of hard to see. Also if anyone decides to go let me know, it'd be great to meet up if possible.
oops I double posted so I am deleting it now

To Be Continued
Second, the Push & Shove Theater Group will be performing Terry Pratchett's Mort live on stage!
Don't know how many of your are familiar with this author. He's a brittish author and writes books and the play they're referring to was adapted to play by Stephen Briggs. I own a copy of the script and can personally tell you it's fabulous as with all of Pratchett's work. If getting a chance to see Ray Park isn't enough, this would definately make the trip worth it. To me, George Lucas is the god of the big screen while Terry Pratchett rules the book world supreme. If you have the chance, GO SEE THIS!
Toy show coming to the machinest's hall on the Rock Road this Sunday, 9/21/03 from 9-3pm. I'm not sure what time I will be there but I am definately going. If anyone else wants to go, maybe we can meet up. They have tons of Star Wars and any other toys you can imagine, especially vintage. (Go 80's toys, the toys of my youth!!) This will be my third show, it is tons of fun. $3 to get in.
