    I had the same complaint about San Diego a few months back. Some people just need a little coaxing out of their shell. You could ask comic book shops, WOTC stores, book stores, any place where Sci Fi afficianados are likely to go, permission to hang flyers discussing starting a Star Wars Fan Club. All you need is a couple of people, and three meetings to become official. And I can post your meetings on the main page of Fan Force to get the word out.

    Of course we don't have a strong fanbase :p
    We're Okies! We like them cows and udders. Not spaceships and lightsabers ;)
    But anyway, what's this about a meeting or something?

    I'm joking ;)
    I'm no Okie either :) But we are in agricultural territory. What do you expect?

    Fresno and Clovis. . . not so much.
    But you got Visalia, Tulare, Lemoor, Porterville. The San Juaquin as a whole is an agricultural valley. I mean, we know we're not just oakies, but to other folk, people in the smaller cities are just country bumpkins lol. Though Fresno hasn't been thought of that in a while. . .
    But my last gf came from LA and she considered us all country bumpkins till she actually met people.
    I was just explaining why fanbase is so low here. You got okies, wana be pimps, and other people trying to be something they're not. SW isn't high on people's list.
    But if it bugs ya, I won't mention it again :p Frankly I was shocked as Hell to even have a central valley FF chapter at all. I just never posted cause nothing ever goes on in here.

    I agree with you almost 100%, except for the okies part. I don't see as many 'okies' in the Fresno/Merced cities, but I see plenty of wannabes trying to either be thugs or WASPS. Most of the okies live in the Western portion of the Valley, or in the Madera area.....

    Right. I think that's more because Fresno is the valley's 'big city'. Actually, it is pretty big. Expand the tower district a bit to give it more of a big city feel. . .

    OK. So let's meet.
    Sometime in the future so we can all plan days off and such.
    Our first one can be small and sorta be a get-to-know-ya type of deal. Could be a small video party where we watch the movies back-to-back or something. We can even invite a few that aren't exclusively Fresno so we get a really good feel for CA fanbases.
    Mar-Jade-Fan and Aunt Jar Jar Mimah might be able to come and bring friends.
    What are we waiting for?

    Whoo hoo!! BBQ!!! Oh, I thought of a name for our fanforce: Nal Hutta, for Fresno and Nar Shadda for Merced. Seeing as how this is a wretched hive of scum and villany (and Mos Eisley is probably already taken...)!

    Eh, I'm proud to be an Okie, everymornin I slip into my garbs, and my boots, and slap on my utility belt, and if it is cold, my robe, and go and rumble the utters for a few hours, then go dust some crops, and then ride into town for some new tractor parts and a nice cold pop.

    So now we know what to do. But when?
    Weekend obviously, but other than that when?
    I'll need to know when to ask for time off just in case I have to work on the weekend.
    Oh! And wear speedos and thong bikinis. I can't stress this enough people.
