    Hopefully we'll get a few new visitors finding these boards from the fliers that were passed out during the Media Play DVD Release.

    I figured that I would start a thread to let people know how to register for FanForce, and so that new people could chime in to let us know who is new to the boards.

    To be able to post, you need to be a registered user on FanForce. You can register at the URL: http://boards.theforce.net/user_register.asp

    I also figured that it might be a good thread for the existing members to introduce themselves to the new members. Maybe we can all chime in with a reply to introduce ourselves. I'll start with myself:

    My name is Darren (-KnightShade- on the boards).
    If anyone was at the DVD release - I was the one running around as Darth Maul chasing the little Ewok.
    (You'd be surprized how many troopers an Ewok can take out!)

    Hello (again)!
    My name is Nicky. At the Media Play event I was the Jedi guardian to the little Ewok running around.

    Just wanted to say hi as I just joined the boards. Looking forward to Ep III, and hoping for the best. Was not totally satisfied with Eps. I and II, though I don't bash it to shreds as others have. Hopefully, a strong script and story will make III stand in the same light as ESB

    Welcome! Welcome!
    It's great to see a new "face" on the boards.

    We're looking forward to EIII too!

    Do you know if you'll be going to Celebration III (www.starwarscelebration.com)? And, as TD-027 said - where are you from? We're (-KnightShade- and myself) are in Greece.

    TD, Doc_Bev,

    Thanks for the Welcome. Yes, I am in Rochester, Henrietta actually. Relocated here from NYC 5 1/2 years ago. Was a paramedic there for 22 years, now in public relations here as well as develoment. (Grant writing)

    Nope, won't be going to Celebration III.

    Just out of curiosity, are there any readers of Joseph Campbell here? I am very into mythology, and enjoy his work along with other authors as well. I enjoy looking for the mythological influences that are in SW, as Campbell was such a huge influence on Lucas.

    Hey Darth-H,
    Actually if you are in Henrietta we are very close to one another: I'm in Brighton just off W Henrietta Rd. As far as reading, I don't get to doing it very much nowadays, 2 Little ones at home, plus work, and our Star Wars group events keep me pretty busy but, I may be interested in checking it out or hearing about it from you sometime :). We have our meetings once a month, they are normally at the Monroe Community Hospital (one of our members lives there). If you would like to come join us some Sunday, I'm sure everyone would enjoy meeting you.

    TD-027 (Duane)

    P.S. I think the next meeting is either on Dec 12 or the 19th. Thanks---

    Well, unfortunately Sundays in December are going to be a rough month for me. However, if anyone is perhaps interested in getting together for coffee during the day, please let me know.

    I saw that KOTOR 2 is out. I have KOTOR for PC, and I love it! I am hoping that KOTOR 2 is as good.

    I was so thrilled to find a Star Wars org here in Rochester! I'm looking forward to finding out what's going on in the area. I've caught the 501st NE Garrison a couple times at cons in Mass but never knew about anything around here.

    I'm a Star Wars, Trek, and general Sci-Fi fan with a recent interest in costuming. I finished my Spiderman for the last movie, I have a new Black Stealth Storm Trooper and I'm going to do a Jedi or X Wing pilot next.

    Welcome JediMasterShawn!
    I'm glad you found our boards! You are definitely not the only SW fan around Rochester. :)
    If you're free - stop by the Village Gate Toy Show on Sunday and you can meet some of us. We're going to be combining this month's meeting with the Toy Show to save time. :)

    Hello, I shall be moving to Rochester in early-mid May and am so happy to have found this group. Would love to hook up with any plans to see Ep. III with a group. It's much more fun. And to know there are SW fans in the area.
