    As discussed at the meeting this Saturday (10/19) we will suggest and discuss naming the Middle Georgia FanForce.

    I suggested The Kessel Miners' Guild.


    I like it.

    That'd be a lot better than "If There's A Bright Center To The Universe, This Club Is In The Town That It's Farthest From."

    (ITABCTTUTCIITTTIFF for short... ok, not so short after all.)

    How about some super cheese?

    Macon (pronounced makin') Clones

    or to keep that theme without the obvious cheeze, something along the lines of Kamino inc., Kamino productions, or Kamino Enterprises

    Just something to chew on, I'll keep working on it.

    If There's A Bright Center To The Universe, This Club Is In The Town That It's Farthest From

    [face_laugh] [face_laugh]

    The Atlanta FanForce runner up chapter name in our voting back in July 2001 was "The Damn Fool Idealistic Crusaders." :p

    Of course, we would have soon found out that using a curse word in our chapter name would have been frowned upon, so it is a good thing that "Hothlanta Rebels" won the vote. ;)

    Hey, Minacia, if we take that name, could we each introduce ourselves as "Member DFIC"?

    That works! ;)

    I would recommend changing that name to DARN Fool Idealistic Crusaders. :p

    Macon Clones!?!?

    LMAO! GREAT!

    That should certainly be put to a vote. Maybe someone should have suggested those names for the local hockey or arena football league 2 teams.

    The recruiting tagline for the MACON CLONES could be. . .


    Don't be like everyone else.

    BE A CLONE!

    Then, if any of us starts using bad language, the rest would take the offender to the top of a buiilding and throw them off.
    Of course then we'd all be arrested for making an obscene clone fall.

    Sorry.

    How about "The Corny Boys?"

    You'll have to excuse me. Apparently my boss thinks I took some MORON pills this morning and has been micro-managing my every move.

    As for GBI. . .

    out of the question. It would sound too much like we work for the State government and nobody would want to be a part of that. ;)

    I wanted to bump this to the top again for some more suggestions/votes.

    At the moment it looks like Macon Clones leads the pack, with If there's a bright center of the universe, this is the FanForce that is farthest from nipping at it's heels.

    Myself and LJ have made some banners and logos that we will share with everyone on Saturday. You won't want to miss it.

    I'm scraping the barrel now guys so listen up. The Red Clay Squadron, or the Red Clay Rebels, Emperial Peaches, Southern Bounty Hunters, Screaming Rebels, Stellar Rebels, Empirial Rebels, Confederate Jedi, Southern Rim, Yavin Moons, Yavin Confederates, etc, ect. Help me out here.

    So far I have'nt found anything better than Macon Clones. Somehow it just fits. But lets keep the names coming guys and gals.

    Heh... Confederate Jedi. I like that. (Couldn't be Confederate Rebels, that'd just be redundant.)

    "Macon Clones" would be the simplest, as would the above choice. "If there's a bright center..." would be a funny choice, though we'd probbably want to shorten it to "Bright Centers" or something like that when we don't want to be all formal.

    I'd be content with any of those three.

    The Macon Clones.

    Building better Star Wars fans from the bright center of Georgia.

    I just LOVE the Clones idea. Once I get in a rut. . .

    I thought I would be stuck thinking that "The Kessel Miners' Guild" was perfection, But "Macon Clones" jumped out at me and I smile whenever I think of it.

    My vote is for Macon Clones. That sounds the best.

    Back up for suggestions.

    Dale has suggested: The Georgia Outlanders.

    Some others:

    Cherry Blossom Brigade

    Middle Georgia Star Wars Society

    Central Georgia Alliance



    Just some more ideas.

    They're all good! :D

    Macon Clones is still one of my faves, however.


    Heck, I'm just psyched about there being another FF group rising in Georgia. :)

    I believe that Georgia Outlanders is a very fitting name for our group, as we are far from Atlanta (Coruscant), the center of the Republic, and our members hail from a wide diversity of locations across the middle of the state. When I set out to create the logo that could best represent the term 'Outlander', the first image that came to mind was the shape of Georgia, covered in pine trees as viewed from the air.

    The idea came from an experience that I had two years ago, when I was on a flight coming into Atlanta. I had a window seat just in front of the wing, and as the plane banked for its descent, I looked earthward over the edge of the wing, and was amazed to see a carpet of deep green far below, through intermittent breaks in the clouds. I had never seen Georgia from the air before, and was only familiar with the landscape as viewed from the surface. As the plane continued to circle, I had the impression of a vast, endless forest, much like Medieval Europe (or possibly Endor).

    In that context, it is easy to imagine that everyone living here is an Outlander, a resident of the great southern forest. We are separated by miles of dense woods: physically connected by ribbons of concrete highways and interstates, and digitally united by this messageboard. Indeed, we live a simple existence, far from the bright center of the universe. But if we remain dedicated and strong, the Force will bring others into our circle, and we will forge a great alliance of Outlanders for the Georgia FanForce.

    A well thought out idea there Warrior, downright inspiring. And finally some expanse on this subject. However, I suggest that the name be instantly recognizable as something star wars. Outlanders would indeed be easy for fellow fans to pick up on, but I wanted a name that would make John Doe see -Star Wars group-. After laughingly suggesting Macon Clones I gave the name some thought and the more thought I gave it the more sense it made. We are indeed out to build an empire as were the people who first envisioned the fanforce in the beginnings. Much like a subdivision of Kamino, we are expanding on the work of others with a unified goal of growth and unity. Through unity we shall grow and to grow we shall continue macon clones.


    BTW, I stumbled across an interesting document that could possibly be a sneek peek at EPIII. I should'nt say sneek peek I should say spoilers. E-mail me for details
