    Hello,
    As most of you know, WindyCon is coming up, and WindyCon is one of the places where Chicago Force likes to go. We've come to realize that not everyone has a desire (or fundage) to go to this convention...but would still like to participate. We've had some grand success with having an independent dinner-party in close proximity of the conventions. This way EVERYONE can hang out.
    Well, at this point we're looking at going to "Mars 2112". For those of you who don't know, it's a funky restaurant with a space theme. go to: http://www.mars2112.com/3.html for a panoramic view.
    Anyway, we're thinking that 6pm would be a good time unless we find that there will be a con event that will be too good to miss at that time.
    I'll be sending an invite out to everyone on the Chicago Force mailing list. So if you haven't registered yet (for the mailing list)...just click the "CHICAGO FORCE" at the top left hand corner of this screen.
    If anyone has a more interesting idea..or a reason for a different date or time, please let me know ASAP before we start solidifying our plans.

    For those interested in going to the convention, SW authors Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moestra will be at Windy Con. The guest I'm more interested in seeing, though, is Dr. Demento! Check out the Windy Con website for more info. For more information on Mars 2112, check out their website.

    Hmmm....I don't see a CHICAGO FORCE link in the top left hand corner of MY screen. Must be some special perk that South Bend people can't see.

    What are the dates for the con? BobaFemme will be my date...

    :cool:

    Yes, we have block you out Mav...hahahahaha

    But seriously, it is cool that the little text of Chicago Force on the top line links you over, now if only we could get that banner working....

    BTW I'm making the trip to Windycon. I'll have to dig out my copy of the Jedi Academy Triology for signage.

    BTW2 What day are we talking about, Fri. or Sat.?

    You should be seeing (at the top of the screen:

    [Chicago Force] Jedi Council Forums » FanForce USA - MidWest » Chicago, IL » "WindyCon" or "Mars Needs Women!"

    The CHICAGO FORCE should be a link (even though it's not blue)

    Awe, I guess. I'm always second place with you. I really think this relationship is going no where. This may not be the place to do this...

    But I think we should just be friends.


    :D

    Everyone reading this should have gotten a YAHOO INVITE to this event. If you didn't, that means either you aren't registered with us at www.chicagoforce.org for our mailing list, or you deleted it thinking it was SPAM. If so, post here, and I'll resend it to you. You need to RSVP at the Yahoo site.

    Darth Jurist Trashed? That's about as rare as seeing Darth Astuart or Moi trashed. I can't envision it.

    Hi, I didn't receive the Yahoo invite. I've received the previous invite, and I didn't delete anything like that so I don't know what's up. I'll be going, what time should I be there?

    Hmmmmm, M.E.R. said he called to make the reservation today, and a recording said that MARS 2112 is closed until further notice. So we need to find another venue in the Schaumburg Area.
    We'll discuss this tongight at the movie and post the new info ASAP. I'll also send out another invite. So make sure you the e-mail address you have registered with us at www.chicagoforce.org is the one you want to recieve mail from us at.

    Got a call from a voice mail I had left for Mars 2112. Turns out that they have a dispute with their landlord, so the place is closed until further notice. So, we'll have to figure out a new place for dinner.
