    just wanted to say what a great time today was. We moved a ton of our T-shirts and drawing tickets, handed out our first two drawing prizes (smuggled R2-D2 and Jango Fett figures, which were procured by that fantabulous dame JediAutobot in one of her spice runs) and somehow stayed a little warm, i think. though i have a slight cold.

    anyway, THANKS to jodokast and the lovely mrs. jodokast for hosting, and to everyone who came, it was great to hang. also, thanks again to the indy knights crew for trekking out and hanging with us.

    generally speaking, i had a blast.

    I had a great time too.
    Thank you Jodokast & Mrs for
    opening up your home (and garage)
    for this motley crew of SW fans.

    It was a blast, specially the "Arrachera'. And Mark thanx for the SW toys, my kids love you for them.

    All kiding aside, thanx Mark & Mrs. JKast for having us over, the Indy Knights for coming over and all the newbies that made it. I hope you guys enjoyed your time there and did not loose your mind.

    I also want to thank everyone who helped to make this a fantastic time! It was great to see a lot of the new people make it out, especially considering it wasn't the warmest of days. You all make me proud to be a Star Wars fan! I hope to see a lot of you at our future events!

    Martha and I had alot of fun with everyone that showed up. Thanks to those who made the long trek from Indy, Houston, and the country of Plainfield.(Hope Jeff caught his flight home ok) It was a great time, went through lots of food, had a birthday cake. What more could you ask for? Ok, maybe a few degrees warmer. :p

    Oh yeah, and Charlie already misses all the attention!!

    Let me add my thanks to the hosts and planners of the BBQ. It was nice to meet you in person and I look forward to seeing familiar faces in the lines at Midnight Madness, C2, and the movie.

    AHHHH! Oh, no! I missed the BBQ! Why did I think it was the 24th? Why on earth would I think you would have it on a Wednesday?!?

    Great time, great food, and don't worry, everyone... I'm starting an official investigation into Phil's winning of the Jango Fett figure first thing Monday.

    You're going down, my raffle-fixin' friend.

    Most heard conversation after the drawing.

    Attendee #1 "That wasn't fair!"
    Attendee #2 "Why not?"
    Attendee #1 "Because I didn't win!"

    It was great meeting all of you, even if I can't remember who was who and who has what handle.



    I look forward to meeting you at future Chicago force Events...if I can make the trek from Houston. :p

    Yeah, Frank Marklin is a swell guy for hosting. And Frank, don't be to insulted for being called Dave. Tom, we kicked that Dave guy out of Chicago Force a long time ago for being such a friggin' gimp.
