    I'm new to the indianapolis chapter but they seem to be eager to provide fans with a warm welcome. We are meeting once a month to discuss how we can help make the celebration a good one.

    Since I'm branching out into new board (like this one) I'll try to keep you posted on what we know.

    I will surely be there, maybe will be bringing some other canadians with me along. I know this will be for the third forums, but Darth_crimson, here is the next subject your chapter should discuss:

    Hotels, with the best rates in town, with ways to get to the celebration.

    Just to let you all know a few things:

    First of all, we are sooooooooooooooo looking forward to Celebration. And I'm really excited that you guys will be there, although I wouldn't know you from Adam.

    Second, we decided a long time back that we would try to put together a FanForce get together. Anyone from theForce.net and FanForce are welcome to attend. I posted this in a few boards, but if you want to let us know that you're coming (and your chapter if that applies), please PM me and we can get you in on the plans. I told everyone that I would contact them in September about it.

    Thirdly, and I'm sure this will be posted every which way over these forums, but here's a [link=http://www.indyknights.com/links.html]link[/link] to our Indy info link section on our website. I haven't updated it in awhile, but the links are quite extensive. Also, you can always [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=2368930]ask us a question[/link] at that link in our forum.

    I'm glad you guys are interested, and this sure looks more encouraging than that poll TF.N had.

    Here's little update. For safety and liability reasons, the get together that the IK will put together will be hosted at one of two places: Hollywood Bar and Filmworks or the Hyatt Regency. Btw, the powers that be for Celebration have about the hotel blocked off for rooms, so you might want to pay attention. Generally, a convention has rooms blocked off and you can get them at a discounted price. Well the party might have a better shot of being the Hyatt because:
    1)the guy who owns Hollywood hasn't called me back, but he's a huge SW fan I hear;
    2) that may be where a lot of you will stay; 3)I totally forgot that I know the director of catering and convention services there. I'm already working with him for a fundraiser for the March of Dimes.

    I know at the last Celebration, they had a get together for everyone called the "Jar Jar Bash"(?) Kind of sounds like a Star Wars version of Whack-a-Mole, doesn't it? Anyways, I know they charged to get in, and we would probably charge too cause, well we don't have any funds for just the club. Don't worry, we'll make sure to make it so that it isn't a large sum. It won't be over $10. And anyways, I guess the Hyatt employees, or at least in catering and convention services department, they're excited for Celebration because, and I quote/semi-paraphrase "These kind sof things bring in lots of fun people." So how do ya like that?

    The full name is "The Indianapolis Convention Center and RCA Dome", but if you say, "Where's the Convention Center?" you'll get pointed in the right direction from some friendly hoosier pedestrian. [face_laugh] Oh, and last I heard, they'll be using Halls A-E, which is pretty much the entire convention center, so once you get into the building you shouldn't have any trouble finding the party.
