    Hey all,

    I was thinking if we do indeed get a Fan Force chapter going here in the Toledo area it's going to need a name. My suggestions is:

    The Glass City Garrison

    What are your's?

    Hi, a Jedi Knight of Cleveland here, so my opinion isn't that relevant, but I like Detroit's R2-Detroit name. Why don't you try Toleed-3PO? (Threw in an extra E for phonetic pronounciation's sake). It would be really cool if you became buddy fanforces like we have with them and Columbus. Then it'd be 3PO and R2...

    Hmmmm, hadn't really thought about the whole naming thing yet. Guess I'll have to put some thought into it and see if I can come up with anything creative.

    Oh, and for the suggested:
    Glass City Garrison - good.
    Toleed-3PO - sorry, does nothing for me.

    A Jedi Knight of Columbus here. I like the Glass City Garrison. Has a nice ring to it.

    Glass City Garrison just sounds so Imperial... :) It sounds good, though.

    Glass City Jedi?

    Just throwing some names out there. Anyone else have any suggestions?

    Here is a more noble sounding maybe Jedi-esque version of "Glass City Garrison:"

    Glass City Guard

    Kinda sounds like we're the protectors of the Glass City, like the Jedi were protectors of the Republic

    Nice ring to it, though I think Garrison sounds much cooler. Where are all the creative people when you need them?

    BTW, I've noticed the most other Fan Forces will have a motto of some kind, like "Hoosier Daddy" for the Indy Knights. Any ideas on that one?

    Sorry, no ideas for a motto just yet but if we want the name to be a little more regional we could have:

    The Black Swamp Jedi

    However, I really like the Glass City Garrison. I'll keep thinking of ideas for the motto.

    How about, in keeping with the tradition of Columbus and Cleveland, The Jedi Knights Of Toledo?

    No offense but that's kind of dull and boring, we'll keep trying.

    Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Wow, someone else actually knows about the Black Swamp! I was going to suggest something along those lines, but wasn't sure if anyone knew of the connection.

    Along the same lines:
    Black Swamp Brigade
    Black Swamp Rebels
    Black Swamp Squadron

    Oh, and I'm of same opinion on the whole "Jedi Knights of Toledo" thing. It worked really well for Columbus and Cleveland, but just doesn't fit Toledo.

    Hmmmm...working something with Black Swamp and Dagobaugh would be cool, though I don't have anything in mind at the moment to suggest. I'll ponder it some.

    Doesn't everybody know about the Black Swamp if you've grown up in NW Ohio?

    I really like the Black Swamp Squadron. Kinda sounds like the Black Sheep Squadron from WWII. If we don't think of anything else I say we go with it.

    I was also trying to think of something for Dagobaugh to tie into the Black Swamp. I'm still pondering though...

    Hmmm, maybe our motto could have something to do with Dagobah or the Glass City.

    Defenders of Dagobah
    Guard of the Glass City

    EDIT: This sounds like a great discussion for our meeting next weekend!

    How about...

    Black Swamp Squadron - "Guardians of the Glass City"

    I agree this does sound like a great topic of discussion. Another good topic is a website, I've got some web page design experience and I know HTML so I could start on one, but we'll talk about that at the meeting.

    After I looked at Guards of the Glass City later, I thought Guardians would've sounded better. I'm glad someone else did, too.

    I'll start posting some things to talk about in the meeting announcement thread so that anyone who stops by will know what's likely to be discussed.

    Glass City Jedi is okay, by still not quite what I was looking for. We'll see what kind of reaction we get come the 7th.

    Does anyone have any graphics skills that could possibly work on a logo? I'm thinking of something that we could use as an icon here and could possibly put on a t-shirt. I do okay merging images together, but have no skill at creating a totally original picture.

    I've got some graphic skills but like you it's more limited to taking graphics and putting them together. I'll see what I can do though.

    Perhaps we need to revisit this again. Donna, could you post that list you made up? I know we eliminated a couple so it might be helpful to have the updated list.

    I like the Black swamp and Glass City. Not that I know how either of those tie into Toledo, but they sound good. You might want to consider lenghth of the name. The : type names are never pretty on the chapter listings, but mighty fine on banners or web pages.

    I will post the list as soon as I find it!
