    So, are the Midlands planning on adopting an official name or will it remain simply FF-UK Midlands?

    What's in a name?

    Usually a few letters! [face_beatup]

    Ummm, I dunno. I've given it a little thought, but I was just concerned about getting off the ground I forgot all about it.

    Great, something else I have to think of now! :rolleyes: :p

    Anybody got any ideas?

    Seeing as it's the Midlands howzabout "The Bright Centre of the UK 'verse"

    Not the planet that it's furthest from!

    Well, I was thinking, when you look at some of the names of other Fan Forces out there, there is something that connects their name to their location.

    Docking Bay 516 (Long Island, NY) - The 516 is in reference to one of their telephone area codes.

    MEPA (New York City) - Mos Eisley Port Authority: The Port Authority is a giant bus station in the middle of Manhattan, and with some of the characters that populate it, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were in the cantina! :p

    Rhode Island - Rhode Squadron - That's pretty ingenious, if you ask me!

    I'm just wondering what we could do with ours? The Middle Rim? The Central Core?

    Hmmmm...The mind boggles. [face_thinking] 8-}

    Well, it's certainly better than what I came up with:

    The Fluffy-Bunny-Slippers Brigade! 8-}

    I think 'Yes it is us'.

    Says it all in my humble opinion.

    How about 'The Darkside of the Mid Rim', fits well with Phill's Wookie fixation and anyone that comes from Onderon.

    Right we need to get this thread back up and running, as discussed at the last meet. I like the phrase from Lord Wiz's signature tbh - FF-UK:M Buy the ticket, take the ride, not sure how Verity, Mika and Izzy will feel about it though.

    Not too many well known planets in the Mid Rim for us to use, in fact the only real thing of note seems to be the Roche Asteroids, although the phrase - Hutt space and head North is accurate o_O

    Your thoughts people, please.
