    Just got the newest mailer, and thought I'd post the link now. Yes, Wondercon will be on: FEB 10-12, 2006 at Moscone West (this time, the weekend before Presidents' weekend) Since, after the Holiday party, no real major events won't occur until February 2006. So here is the link. And guess what? The SFFF is already confirmed as an exhibitor!:D

    FYI - Check out this article of a few SFFF members at last year's event!

    I plan to attend this year as well. (I was just telling my husband tonight he needs to get a move on with the E-11 Blaster so I can bring it to the con!) As the event approaches I'll decide how many days I'll attend. Perhaps if I do my time behind a particular fan table on a slower day like a Friday I can see all the panels I want on Saturday?

    I will be there Saturday and Sunday. I can also help out Friday morning until 1pm when I have to go to work (which is fortunatly right down the street). Now that there are a lot more of us, manning the table should go more smoothly.

    Well, if you're going to go, then Saturday is the best time. There are both the Rebel legion and 501st group photo shoots, as well as Steve Sansweet's Star Wars presentations, and the SW costuming panels. And if there is a 501st dinner this year, it's usually on Saturday evening as well. If not, there's always the Masquerade to check out too.

    I am still trying to work out on having a "Unity 2" dinner on Friday evening, though. :)

    You know, if our table is next to the Firefly fan table (as someone mentioned last night) that would be cool. After all, there is a bit of cross-over between Star Wars and Firefly fandom.

    Anyone see Han in carbonite in this photo?

    Wow Kat! You are so right, I never noticed that! A 12 inch Han in carbonite is featured in the top-right portion of the frame in the Episode "The Message." More specifically go to: Ch. 5. The clip is exactly at 17 minutes and 38 seconds in. [face_thinking]

    Who knows? Maybe Kaylee and the rest of the Serenity crew was a fan of SW just like the rest of us - 500 years in the future. :D

    Oh, I can't take credit for the good eyes. Someone that Maggie (padawan's guide) knows spotted it and made the screen capture. I just knew we had some firefly fans here that would get a kick out of it!

    FYI - I've updated our [link=http://www.sffanforce.com/sf_events.html]events page of the SF fan force[/link] site to include WonderCon. As details are officially announced for any Star Wars presentaions or guests I will include that info.

    Once we have more info about what will be at our table (MR Lightsaber Demos?) I can also add in those details, as well as the Unity Dinner if that comes about.

    It's going to take me more time to fill in our past events page. An after Christmas project for sure!

    I'll be coming to the event. I will be staying at the Marriot. Tionne is bunking with me and maybe ShasaWaterwalker?

    I'm going to be arriving on Feb. 9th Thursday. I was wondering if any of you would be interested in going dancing that night at Cat Club's "1984". [face_dancing]
    It's a 21 and up club. If you go early I think you can get in free. It's been a while since I've gone. But my sister says it's still happening.

    I know this is a way off but so was Christmas. Look at it now!
    Anyway looking forward to seeing you all again.
    The Con will be alot of fun for us all.

    Everyone's invited of course.

    And don't worry, I'm not going to spring anything on you like refreshments with Vader.8-}

    You like dancing to 80's music and StarWars we will get along famously.
