    Does your chapter have an event coming up? Post the date/event here and I'll add it to our 'upcoming calender' in this here thread.

    This way we can check out what everyone else is doing, and maybe get some ideas for events you might want to try yourself at some point.

    If someone posts something that interests you, strike up a discussion - you never know what great ideas you might find. :)

    February:
    8th - Chicago Force - a room parties at Capricon
    8th - San Diego Movie Marathon (Watching the OT movies on the Big Screen)
    11th - MNforce has it's monthly meeting and a movie February 11th
    22nd - MNforce Cartoon party

    March:

    8th-9th: San Diego Camping trip out to Imperial Dunes where the Sail Barge Scene in ROTJ was filmed. Our guides will be two fans who watched the filming of these scenes back in 1982.

    April

    5th: The San Diego FanForce invites everyone for a Five Movie Marathon on the Big Screen. The Event starts at 11am and lasts all day.

    I guess I will start things off. This month we are having a Life Day party. I know the holidays are over but with conflicting schedules of the group we decided to have it in January. It is on the 11th. We rented the back room of a restaurant for it to have privacy so we can be ourselves.

    Shara.....my fiance works with one of the hosts for the TV show. I was invited to be on the show before we started the North Ridge to show some collectibles, but I waited until we had a bigger group. I'll try to get some of the footage for everyone to see.

    The Queensland Fan-Force is a pretty happening place right now.
    We have a Tri-Weekly BBQ/Picnic at various locations around Brisbane.
    (Which includes various sporting activities after lunch)

    We also gather at the 'drop of the hat' with such occasions as;
    film premieres, bowling, billiards, theme(DVD/Video) nights and poker nights.
    Plus, to those old enough, we are renowned for our infamous 'Bar Wars' pub crawls.

    As a member of the QFF, I invite interstate/international FF-ers here to Brisbane.
    The only pre-requisite to our meets seems to be posting on the Queensland Boards,
    which is also where you'll get the details. So come one come all, a merry time is to be had,
    here where it's beautiful one day, Star-Wars fandom the next.
