    A couple of questions:
    Do you discuss the films at meetings?
    Does everyone own a costume?
    Is it mandatory to attend every meeting?

    I don't think I can make the 22nd, one of my charges is having her birthday party that afternoon. Possibly February, pending date & time.

    A couple of questions:
    Do you discuss the films at meetings?


    All the time. Sometimes we even watch the movies and talk about them that way too.

    Does everyone own a costume?

    I'm not sure if everyone owns a costume...we may all have costumes but costuming is BY NO MEANS a requirement. We do costumes because it's become somewhat of an obsession...well at least for me anyway. But you don't NEED a costume to join the group. All you need is to love Star Wars.

    Is it mandatory to attend every meeting?

    Absolutely not. If you can't make it to a meeting then don't worry about it. There's always the next one and that's what our njo forums are for...to find out what happened at meetings/events. However I should mention that to become a FULL member, you must attend at least 3 meetings/events in a 6 month period.

    Everything is explained in a lot better detail at our private forums so if you venture over there you'll get a better idea of who we are and what we're all about. I hope that helps!

    If it makes any of the newbies comfortable, any of our crew would be happy to meet up with you before the meeting. Go to www.newjerseyorder.com and PM me (Emperor Fabolous) with your location and where you'd like to meet.

    It's a bit intimidating to meet with a group right off the bat, and hopefully this will make your intro to the club easier.

    Just a thought-

    We do discuss the movies at meetings. Costumes are NOT nessasary. Every person has their OWN level of obbssesion with Star Wars just bring that to a meeting.

    Hey everyone!

    Due to the weather forecasts, we are cancelling this months meeting set for tomorrow. We will definitely post when we are going to meet in February. We'll also be holding our 2 year anniversary dinner in February as well. It will probably be at the same place, being that we wanted to do the anniversary thing where it all began.

    Sorry if this has inconvenienced anyone!

    Whew! My charges' parents cancelled her birthday last night, so I would have been free to attend this meeting. And I was worried I'd get stuck in Freehold because I hate driving in the snow.

    If you have any costumed events coming up, I'd like to know. If you need a Padme, I could prep the costume and get it ready for you guys. Also, my one of my charges has a cute Anakin costume I made for him last Halloween. I could bring him along too, he loves wearing it!

    SORRY - MEETING IS CANCELLED!!!

    The snow amounts were scaring even the most dilligent of attendees.
    Here it is 1:35pm and there is about 3-4 inches of snow on the ground here in Northern NJ.

    So about 20" I hear.

    eek.

    To all newbies - February's meeting will be a fun one, I promise!!

    It's a shame that we had a handful of new people ready to attend and we had to cancel! I'm glad we did though, because it was about 12:30 when it started to come down. Gary and I had to make a run for some "Vitamin Y" and it was just a mess. I hope everyone is staying OFF of the roads!

    I hope that ALL of the new people can make it to February :)

    It's about 20 minutes to half hour. If the meeting's at my apartment, that is.

    I don't think a youngling is a problem at all :) We have members who bring their children all of the time!

    Marie just likes the word 'youngling' cuz it's a letter away from 'Yuengling'.
