    Since, the topic of a NW Ohio Fan Force has been brought up again. I thought I would re-kindle this old discussion.

    I recently found what I think was the list of names from our meeting last year. The lis was as follows:

    Black Swamp Squadron
    Black Swamp Jedi
    Black Swamp Raiders
    Guardians of the Glass City
    Glass City Guard
    Glass City Garrison
    Glass City Jedi
    Jedi Order of the Glass City

    Any other ideas?

    *For those who don't know the Northwest Ohio area was once covered in what was known as the Black Swamp, and Toledo is the glass making capital of the world and is thus known as the Glass City.

    I thought I'd post this seperately as to seperate opinion from the original list.

    As you can see from my signature my favorite is Black Swamp Squadron. I feel it would give us the elite fighting force aire about the group (i.e. Rouge Squadron or the 181st). It would also tie the group in to the heritage of the NW Ohio. Also, it gets away from the over used Jedi Knight of *insert name of city here* approach that the other Fan Force chapters have went with.

    Black Swamp Squadron is definitely my favorite.

    I'd be open to other ideas, though.

    I still like the Glass City Guardians too.

    I trying to come up with a Jedi-esque tie in with the Black Swamp idea but I can't really think of any.

    I know what you mean. Black Swamp Jedi Knights, etc. just doesn't sound as good as Black Swamp Squadron. Of course, I thought that "Guardians of the Glass City" would be a great motto.

    I could see our banner now...

    Black Swamp Squadron
    Guardians of the Glass City

    That's cool.

    We could even go with a Jedi Starfighter Squadron type of theme to get the Jed-esque feel.

    Hey with all the rain we've gotten in the past week maybe we should declare Toledo to be Tipoca City from Kamino. I can see it now:

    Tipoca City Cloners

    hehehehe

    Come to think of it a Kaminoan theme wouldn't be bad either.

    I still like:

    BLACK SWAMP SQUADRON
    Guardians of the Glass City

    Just throwing out ideas.

    Cloners of the Glass City????:)

    Eh, can't say I like the Cloners idea, though it is starting to look a lot like Kamino around here...

    That looks pretty sweet. Great work.

    BTW, it says "Yoda" on the left side and "Mace" on the right. :D

    Thank you very much.

    In case you were wondering the planet is Kamino. I was going to use Dagobah but Kamino just looked better.

    I might have to start working on a website to go with that banner now!

    Hey just another goofy name idea...

    You may remember a few years back in the world of professional wrestling there was a group of wrestlers known as the New World Order or nWo for short...well what about:

    nWo Fan Force

    as in North West Ohio

    Stupid idea i know but I'm just throwing everything out there to see what sticks...

    Hmmm, interesting. That actually sounds kinda cool, even though I'm not a wrestling fan at all.

    the wrestling nWo always went around saying that they were "nWo 4 Life!"

    our motto could be "nWo 4 Force!" hehehe

    Yet another idea from the brain of Rho'lynn.

    BLACK SWAMP

    Just simply Black Swamp. The theme would be one of the undworld crime syndicate Black Sun. Ever since I read Shadows of the Empire I've loved the idea of the Black Sun. I think it would be a unique theme within the Fan Force.

    Hmmm, that's an interesting take on the Black Swamp theme. Any ideas as far as what our slogan would be? I just can't seem to come up with one right now.

    Good ideas so far Rholynn! Keep them coming!

    I thought you might like it...as for a motto maybe...

    BLACK SWAMP
    Shadows of the Fan Force

    I'm still trying to think of a better one though...

    What about "Fan Force Underground" or something along those lines?

    You know, a week ago I would have said we were gonna be the Black Swamp Squadron for sure. Now...

    "Fan Force Underground" that is good. I also thought Black Swamp Squadron was a lock, but I'm really liking just Black Swamp.

    Here is a sample banner for Black Swamp...
