    It is that time again this year

    http://www.comic-con.org/wc/

    At the meeting it seemed alot of us were going to be there on Sat. 28th, we opened up the idea to maybe get together for lunch while we were all there. Let's see who else is going and maybe some people who are gong to be there on other days can get together and hang out with fellow members.

    So post when you are going and maybe a fellow member will be there too.

    I just wanted to stop in and say hi to the SVRF members who are coming out to WonderCon!

    I wanted to make sure our friends in Fan Force knew they were invited to the Rebel Legion photo shoot Saturday morning at 11:30am. We'll be meeting up at 11:15 on the mezzanine level on the stairs behind the exhibitor registration booths (assuming registration booths are in the same place they've been the last 2 years).

    Every year we've taken a big group photo with all our friends in Star Wars costumes, no specific club affiliation required for our first big "friends and family" group shot. We take this photo first so that kids and others who are not part of the Rebel Legion don't have to wait around while we take our various group pictures for the club.

    Hope we'll see some of you there!

    Here's our big friends and family photo from last year that included members of the Rebel Legion, San Francisco Fan Force, Sacramento Valley Rogue Force, and the East Bay Star Wars club!

    We agreed at the last meeting for the ones going to connect by cell phone when you get there. Make sure you have someones number so that you can locate the group. We are all going seperately and connecting there. I believe that TJ is the only 3 day person so far. I could be wrong about that. Most are going down on Saturday.

    I think Csarrico is going down for all three days, but I'll let him confirm that.

    Kimmie & I are going down Friday night after work. I don't want to miss the 501st/RL dinner w/ special quest.
    I'll be there all day for Saturday.
    We are still looking for an inexpensive place to crash for the night.
    I think Chico Chris has a room down there for all 3 days also. TJ, where are you staying at??

    My roommate and our friend are staying at the Renoir Hotel - another decent place to stay is the Bay Bridge Inn. The former has valet parking and the latter has free parking on site, but they end up being about the same price wise if you need to park... this time, we're going to leave the car in Richmond and take BART in.

    We just stayed at a pretty decent Best Western on 9th St that had free parking and free continental breakfast. They are doing some reconstruction but the work doesn't begin until 10 and ends at 5. It didn't bother us at all. We found it on Booking.com. It was only $49 a night and was way better then I was expecting. In fact, the beds were more comfortable then some of the expensive hotels beds. Let me know if you would like the number. It is walkable from where the Con is being held.

    Thanks for the info and the offers to join the festivities. We really appreciate it. I am looking forward to seeing everyone this next weekend.


    Hey SVRF,
    What time is everyone planning on heading to SF on Saturday. I am trying to plan and do not want to miss the people, the events, or the fun. :) We can also maybe plan to pool our stuff for autographs if others want to go to panels, etc. Earl is mainly going for Mark Hamil's autograph. He needs it to go with his Carrie Fischer. :)

    I plan to get there before the con opens Saturday hoping I can volunteer my time early enough so I can go to some neat panels later in the day. I'll keep you updated.
