    FYI - Before there is C-3, before there is Ep 3. there is of course WonderCon 2005, and the time to plan specifics is now:


    http://comic-con.org/Pages/WCWhatsNew.html


    What should be noted is that there will be the 1st ever Masqerade on Saturday Evening - similar to all aspects of Comic-Con.

    Q. What does that mean for us?
    A. It means a new date for the 2nd Annual Star Wars Unity, as well as the 501st dinner - maybe to the point of just combining the 2 events. Again, just like San Diego this past year

    So let's get cracking come next meeting ! :D

    Actually we didn't think we combine the event at ComicCon, I thought we were just invited by the 501st.

    The plan to find the hidden Nazi gold under the convention center....come to think of it now that I've told everyone where the gold is hidden...it's not all that hidden any more, why on earth was I waiting for wondercon to dig this up???

    I don't mean to sound ignorant, but I had no clue that such events took place so close to my end of the galaxy... from its website, Wondercon seems like it would be a blast to attend!!

    It's only one of the best Cons in the area. Especially when these guys show up. I am hoping that things will work out so I can make a trip up there and go to the Con. Anyone know what hotels are near the Moscone? I can drive up, but I need somewhere to crash if I go.

    I believe the 'con' hotel is the Argent, about a block-and-a-half away. Not sure if there's a convention discount, the website would have that info.

    Then there's the Marriot, also walking distance.

    Failing that, we'll just have to hide you in the basement like a Rebel spy. ;)

    Or if you're REALLY short on cash, there's a hostel about 7 blocks away.

    Could someone tell me what the schedule is going to be including Unity? I need to pass the word to the Rogues, so we can stay in formation and dock for one evening or two evenings in one of San Fran's finest hotels.

    Gracious

    Speaking of Unity 2, or "U2", we are still looking for a venue to hold it. If it comes down to it, it might not be a potluck. Other possibilities might be a separate dinner at a restaurant, or even breakfast Saturday or Sunday morning.

    Ok Matt, just keep me posted as to where it is. We will be there. Also, are you having prizes raffled off again? If so, I can donate a Light Saber.

    I'll see what I can do as well in the prize vault effort.

    Might not be much, I'm sure I can dig up or buy something.

    Or we could make it like a GEEK X-mas. everyone brings a gift/prize and we draw numbers to see who picks first and then we can steal gifts..etc etc like an x-mas party. everyone has some fun and walks away with a prize.

    Have we heard word on anything Lucasfilm might be up to? It's close to EP3 so I can imagine they've got something cooking.

    I'm sure you've already thought about this, but you should see about getting Mary Franklin and Steve Sansweet back to the event (if not some other SW celebs).

    Natalie hasn't returned my calls....yet. ;) But on another note, just found out from Daniel Logan (Boba Fett, AOTC) that he, along with Ray Park (Darth Maul) and Sala baker (Sauron, LOTR) will be at WonderCon!

    Might be a long shot, but with Kevin Smith coming as well and his unclear status with the TV show I'm betting Wondercon could be the place they make it "real"
    Let e-mail Kevin and invite him to U2

    I agree, let's invite Kevin Smith to Unity as a special guest - he's a fan, he might want to hang with other cool fans! :)

    Is Mike Quinn going to be there too? Or don't we know yet?

    Hi again,

    forgot to add this to my previous post. I was at a Party Store yesterday and I found (and purchased) some SW Ep II napkins and cups for Unity! I also got about 4 paper tablecloths that say "STAR WARS" and show unidentified silhouettes dueling - kinda generic, but still official merchandise, and best of all - no cleanup required :) I cleaned them out of cups and I got enough napkins for at least 100 people - does that sound like enough? There are 2 different sizes of napkins too, regular dinner size and smaller beverage size.

    I'll keep my eyes out for plates!

    Yay!!! Good work! We were looking for those things for the first Unity so maybe we're one step ahead for this one.

    Still thinking about coming even though its the weekend after going to Sansweet's. What can I say, you guys are worth the drive.

    Edit: New Muppet film? Is he working on the muppet Wizard of Oz??
