    I'd be interested, but would I be the only, um, girl? What about playing Trivial Pursuit? I have both Original Trilogy and Episode 1.

    Well, maybe, if there were other girls involved.

    :) Yes it does sound like fun, but I don't know if I could play Trivial Pursuit. I played the original version with some of the other fans while waiting in line for tickets to EPI. Somehow I managed to win three times in a row. [face_blush] They didn't want me to play anymore after that. :p (that was supposed to sound more ironic than cocky)
    Maybe I could just read the questions or something.

    Is anyone looking for someone to go to AlphaCon with? I might be looking for a buddy.

    I need tickets for AlphaCon, but I am not sure if I will be going or not.

    Yes, we should set aside a time to eat pizza or something like that and have a meeting. Maybe play Trivial Pursuit.

    It'd be nice to play the game with other star wars fans. My family refuses to play with me since I will always win most likely (and that is the truth.) :)
    I also have star wars original trilogy monopoly.

    Where would we meet? the library? the park?

    I like this idea of the fanforce chapter. I could even let you use part of my website for it, maybe. (That is if we start one and need web space. )

    I think it's a great idea to start meeting. Since it's your first time, I'd suggest a public place. In Minneapolis, we first met at Planet Hollywood (by the mouse droid) and then played SW Trivial Pursuit. After a few meetings, you should designate a City Rep for Lincoln. If you have any questions about getting started, you can email me or post here.

    I am up for it......I live in the UNL Campus so the Union is always a good thing for me to visit.....and you guys can get a good look at campus if you don't live on it. ;)

    *laughing* Well, that's four whole people so far. :)

    The student Union sounds just fine to me. I work on campus in a few computer labs.

    Oh, so that's why nobody's posted in a week. I was wondering where everyone went...

    I don't see how anyone can call themselves a Star Wars fan and not want to attend AlphaCon. I mean, I can understand money constraints. But to have the means and not go....

    Just strange to me.

    I would love to attend AlphaCon but I have two reasons that I can't. One reason is that I don't drive and the second reason is that I wouldn't have anyone to go with. I've never been to a convention and probably would feel strange going to one.

    We should all go together. Hey, just a thought.

    Well I am moving out of the dorms for the summer. Omaha will be my new home...I think I might go to AlphaCon too so I might see some of you there hanging out by the TF.N booth, eh? Cheers.

    Hey guys: Omaha Fan Focre started with 5 people who met one the boards like this. If Omaha can do it so can you. I lived in Lincoln last year and I know there are fans there. You just have to find them. Try to get something together for the next convention in Omaha next September. It will be a movie year, so you won't want to miss it!! Later Dawmer
