    *Breaks out in hives*

    NO PEANUTS!!!! I'M ALLERGIC!!!!

    *reaches for Epi-Pen*

    Anyway, I am trying to go. I went to Mile High Con back in Oct and I purchased a 3 day badge and come to find out I didn't need it. We did a Con Suite, where the RMFF served ice cream. Are they doing something like that at WonderCon? I will post later when I know more. I might fly in on Friday and try to rent a car so I'll be in San Francisco already.

    Thats pic is so cool, the title should be "super deformed LDV". I love those toys and our fearless leader could be the next brilliant addition to the line.

    For the new members that have asked what "Unity" was about, here is a link to what it was about, and see if you can find the special guests. ;) [link=http://theforce.net/rouser/miscellaneous/wondercon.asp]Unity[/link]

    Hey, Rogues.

    Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Unity will have a sequel this year. :( Also, one of our members is having a birthday that day (Friday) and we'll probably get together that night. You guys are free to join us. We're probably thinking of doing the Cheescake Factory.

    I just bumped into Mary Franklin at work the other day (she just saw "King Kong") and she said Steve Sansweet's SW Presentation will be sometime between 5 - 7 pm on Saturday. Also, author Timothy Zahn was going to be at a book signing in Half Moon Bay on Friday night at 7 pm, but now it looks like he'll be at WonderCon instead! I mentioned if it would be possible for him to sign at our table and she said she'll try to see if that's doable. Details are still being worked out, and times TBA. She also said that she wasn't sure of which SW celebs (i.e. Matthew Wood -voice of General Grievous) would be there. She assumed Official Pix (who's an exhibitor, and the only licensed company authorized to sell authentic SW photos and autographs) told him since he is a local, but we'll have to wait and see. I actually mentioned it to Matt when he visited me at work a while back.

    Thanks for keeping us up to date, Matt! I'm sad Unity won't happen, but you can totally count me in for the Cheesecake Factory (never been there).

    That would be awesome if you had Zahn or Wood signing at your table. *note to self: bring a Zahn book just in case.

    One more note about Unity... Although it is unfortunate it won't happen this year, here is another idea... After doing a Santa Cruz Boardwalk trip last summer w/ members of SFFF, The Santa Cruz Fan Force, and your very own Bith Lord, I suggest we do something sometime in the Spring or Summer as a Northern Californian "Fan-Force Trifecta" event. Maybe a picnic at a much closer Endor location - Marin County's Samuel Taylor Park (they shot Speeder-bike back-ground plates there).

    We could even include both the Golden Gate and Central Garrisons of the 501st as well.

    Now this is something we should totally discuss at WonderCon. [face_thinking]

    One thing I wanted to discuss with Matt at Wondercon was trying to get all the SW groups together for a Star Wars Day at Six Flags Marine World in Valiejo, since So Cal is having a Star Wars Day at Disney Land in June.

    Nah....no worries about that SMS. I worked there one summer, you look positively svelte (word of the day, look it up and increase your vocabulary!)!

    Sounds like fun, Matt. I'd love to see all 5 of our groups get together for a just-for-fun event. That is if we can convince the CCG that we are worth hanging out with. ;)

    *post-sleping edits cuz I didn't notice them until now.

    My last message should have said Dale...sorry bro.. [:D]
    And no, I did not misspell it. The word was "svelte"..."suave" is something entirely different. ;)

    Now back to your regularly scheduled madness.

    I didn't post this out there for everyone, and I haven't looked back in the thread to see if was posted by another yet...so if it's a repeat my bad.

    One of our SF Fanforce members has a few rooms on reserve for us, if you need a room contact me (or LDV, Tina, Hawkgirl) and we'll put you in touch with the right person.

    My plans are still up in the air for Wonder-con, side effect of a massy life..but I am Chaos so it's expected.

    I might take Harlock up in offer of extra rooms, but I would need a couple of peeps to go with me, due to me not being able to afford the room for that many days by myself.

    depending on how many people are planning on staying in each room, I would also go in one of the other rooms.

    Show of hands, how many are planning on bunking with Tina and for how many nights?

    Just off the top of my head:
    Hawkie and Jackson (fri and sat night)
    Tina and TJ (thurs-sat night)
    LDV
    Bithlord?
    Belda Pinik and Matt?

    any others I am forgetting?
