    I went for the Gator Knights as well. I could envision a logo, or t shirt design with a gator dressed as darth vader and/or a gator dressed as a jedi.

    btw my girlfriend is hot on the trail of a darth gator pic from the sun. Any others with artistic tendencies want to try and contribute some ideas for logos characters ect.?

    I voted. And I have a picture of Darth Gator. It was a picture of me with it but I think I can get me out of it and still have just DG in it. But I can't get to it until after I move on April 8.

    No problem. My girfriend came through and got an archive pic to darth gator from the sun. Now after I can it I can crop and edit it and go from there. If anyone has some artistic talent maybe we could try and get a jedi gator done as well.

    I kind of think that a graphic of Darth Gator would look better than just a photo. I can try to come up with something and then I'll post it here.

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=8690858]HERE [/link] is everything we need to know about becoming an official chapter.
    We will need a leader, hopefully that person will have lots of spare time...

    Once this poll closes, I think we should take the top few names and vote on one, Any objections?
    Once we have a name we can think about a website, t-shirts, flyers, etc.

    Is everybody okay with this idea?

    Sounds good to me, though I suspect that nothing will overtake Gator Knights at this point. We might want to start making some preliminary plans for a shirt/Gainesville FF logo, however, something to do while we are waiting for TRU to open for MM.

    Rough draft people... I need feedback here. Am I even close to being in the right direction? Do you like it? Do you hate it? Do you like bunnies?

    Anybody have any ideas or suggestions? Questions? Comments? Smart remarks?

    I think you're in the right direction, but using a "real" photo of Vader and a "real" gator just looks weird in my opinion. Since Vader's mask (and face) are so important to who he is, maybe we should look at something else...I have sketched a gator in jedi robes with a two sided (blue and orange, of course) lightsaber. I'm trying to get it scanned in to send, but it own't be until monday or tuesday.

    but then again, I'm new..so what opinion do I have..

    I like bunnies.
    I like symbols and stuff, maybe we can have a meeting to brainstorm.

    I wasn't sure if anyone else was working on any ideas so I thought I'd throw something out there. That's actually a Vader figurine and one of the Gator statues from around town put together. But yeah... not meshing that well. I'm looking forward to seeing your ideas. I think the orange and blue lightsaber sounds cool. :)

    As anyone had a chance to price t-shirt places around town?

    ummm...not to sound internet retarded (but I am..oh how I am), how do I post a pic? Does anyone have an email address I can send it to as a jpeg or tiff? Preferably someone who can post it here? I have two: one is just a pic of the Gator Knight standing, and one action where he's leaping at the viewer, with two separate lightsabers in each hand, again, one blue, one orange.
