    You may be able to live without the imagery, unfortunately I've already seen it... well, I saw the sign being held out the back window... don't recall actually seeing the "Forest Moon" that was hanging out the front window. The things people do to those in line for a movie!

    Anyway, I just want to say that I like all the names you guys are throwing around, the Forest / Ewok idea especially, however I think London Knights is a bad idea... You don't really want any name issues to come up with the hockey team.

    Just my two cents (Canadian).

    Thanks poobah....My thoughts exactly :)

    London IS known as the Forest City, some don't like using that though o_O

    lol!

    Just as a point of reference...

    Buffalo NY just became official, I believe the same day as you did, there name is "The North Ridge". Very fitting... North... ridge=boarder... boarder of the U.S. very nice.

    Truth be told, I've lived near London my entire life and never once heard it referred to as anything near "Forest" or anything similar, until all this chat about names...

    Perhaps something with simple initials.

    L.C. Knights, for London Canada.

    Or, here's one:

    ******Forest Clan Knights.******* Forest for all you forest = london people, clan because it's a reference to Bear Clan, Forest Clan..... and Knights because everyone likes to be a knight.

    But then, just reading it, 'Knights' and 'Clan' in the same title can be misleading....if you catch my meaning.... :eek:

    Justin, thought of anything more?

    How about the London Rogues?
    Then on the website we could do profiles as pilots :)

    I suggested "Sanctuary Forest Knights" to Justin

    Sanctuary - for the Endor reference
    Forest - for the London reference
    and
    Knights - cause Jake wants Knights ;)

    Here are all the names we've gone through on this thread so far.
    Pick three you really like (including any new suggestions you have) by Friday October 4th and then I'll set up a poll and we can vote.

    (Online voting is probably better because we want to do it sooner rather than later and the chances of getting us all in the same place at the same time are pretty small).

    Post your names (or any major objections to this suggestion) here!


    Blue Knights

    Cold Winter Knights

    Ewok Knights

    FanSW

    Forest City Jedi

    Forest Clan Knights

    Jedi Consulars

    Knights who come from London Canada

    Knights who say 'Eh?'

    Labatt Warriors

    L. C. Knights

    London Squadron (a late suggestion)

    London (and not the one in England!) Star Wars Fanclub

    London's Chosen Ones

    London Knights

    London Rogues

    London Star Wars Fanclub

    Sanctuary Forest Knights

    Thames River Knights

    The Chosen Ones

    The Forest Moon

    Western Warriors

    Young Jedi London

    I didn't get it either, but what deb wants is for you to pick three, remember them, keep them to yourself, then in a few days she'll create a poll, that's when you pick three.

    I am under the impression that we choose 3, post them, and then only the ones we have selected are in the poll. Remember, polls can have a maximum of 10 choices only.

    However, I STRONGLY advise you against posting it as a poll, for 2 reasons:

    1. People with multiple user names (I have 10, for example) can vote more than once.
    2. People who are not part of the chapter can also vote.

    This is our chapter. The name affects us. You don't see Canadians voting in the American election, do you? It just isn't right to give non-members and members equal influence over the results, which is what would happen if it were posted as a poll.

    LOL, didn't think I made it that confusing!
    Sure, AT_60, we can do it as a PM too, my idea was that once you vote in the poll you post your choice, which will make sure that other votes from outside the chapter aren't counting (of course, this kind of defeats the purpose of the poll). So let's do it as a PM then.
    Everyone post your three favourite here, then the final vote will be from those that are picked.

    Hey, London Squadron, London Rogue Squadron sounds like a awesome name.
    I have to compliament the person who thought that name up. :p
    I'm just an Out-Of-Towner, throwing in my 2 cents.
    I like London Squaden.
