    Hi, all,

    Well, here we go again -- sort of like upgrading Windows (Forums 2.0 sound good?)

    Oh, well, anyone out there interested in chatting it up here in town, feel free to join in!

    Best wishes,
    D.R.

    Hmmmm, this'em cozy. I like FanForce moving to Snowboard and attaching itself to the Jedi Council Community. I'm likely to visit more often.

    How are you doin', Ridiculous? It's cold here downtown.

    Hi! I'm a student at UC Davis, so Sac is the closest area to me right now.

    Wait a second, seriously Bright Sith? I recognize your name from the JC, but didn't know you were from my area.

    I graduated from UCD about 5 years ago, and I visit the town quite a bit. I would love to buy a house in the area. What are you studying? Are you involved in an extra-curricular activities?

    Well, welcome to the Sacramento Forum, to you as well. :D

    Hey Aunt! ;)

    I'm a first year student at UCD. My major right now is sociology, but that could change. I'm from LA, but I haven't been back home since the start of school, but I'll be going back on Friday, right now I'm in finals week. :(

    Hey! Did you guys dress up for Halloween? We did and we went to Sunrise Mall in Citrus Heights. My wife and I built the Jawa, we got Leia from eBay and I built Darth-Bart from scratch except for the helmet.

    Here are some photos of myself, my wife, and our daughter:

    Does anyone know when another Star Wars, Sci-fi or costume event might be happening in this area?

    What costumes does everybody have? It would be cool to know so if there was an event or party or something.

    I have a Vader costume, (see pics above), but am updating my armor. Also, I've ordered a full Imperial Stormtrooper costume, coming in March. I have a full Jawa costume (see pics above) and I have 1 adult and 1 child's Leia costumes with real wigs. I'm building a Tusken Raider costume now.

    Check the South Bay forum under general discussion. Someone posted that there is a Sci Fi convention being put on by Creation Entertainment in Sacramento on Jan. 28th. They posted the web site for more info at:
    http://www.creationent.com but I could not log on. Don't know if I have technical problems or that was not the correct site. Darth Ridiculous: maybe you can follow up on this and post more info as you get it--i.e., details on who is appearing and when.

    I found the info on this page:

    I'm moving that weekend, but it looks like a big ol' Trekkie convention anyway.

    It is mostly a Star Trek convention, but they always sell a lot of Star Wars stuff. Last time I got a Darth Vader interactive bank, that I play with along with my Gui-Gon, Obi-Wan and Darth Maul banks. Yes, I open some of my toys and play with them. The lightsaber fights on the banks are great. Anyway, I like Star Trek also, and enjoy these conventions. I'm hoping to come up from San Francisco for Saturday's events, including the evening Cabaret with the Stars. I'm checking with the South Bay Star Wars club to see if anyone is coming up from there. If anyone from Sacto is going, maybe we can meet during the show and get dinner between the day events and the evening show. We can coordinate later if anyone is interested.

    Man, I kind of wanted to go, but didn't have anyone to go with.

    It sounded like fun.

    The Star Trek convention was a lot of fun. I bought one Star Wars pin but otherwise saved my money this year. Creation has this convention in Sacto every year in Jan. or Feb. If people are interested in meeting at the convention next year, let's arrange it.

    Sounds like a good idea. Boy do I miss Sacramento. I loved going to Apple Hill and wandering around downtown. Will have to come visit. Hey why not around January of 2002. LOL
