    Sound off if anyone's still out there in Edmonton. Also let me know if you're interested in potentially meeting up somewhere in town to get the ball rolling on this again. Thanks :)

    Glad to see you back and hopefully we can get you guys going again. Are you going to the expo at all. Be sure to stop by our booth and say hi and hang out to help rally people.

    I personally won't be there, but I support any old or new EFF members who wanna meet up or get together with y'all... and I'd be there in spirit. Unfortunately money is tight, but hopefully we can get something going up here in time for the new movie.

    Hey, I am in Edmonton and Ryan talked to me this weekend about getting EFF going again. I have been a member of the CFF for almost a decade, I think. I could probably get us access to free space to meet up.

    Awesome, welcome. If there's any interest in a meeting you can count on me and possibly my wife making it.

    Welcome, Corey. Well since there seems to be some interest in a get-together, how about two weekends from now, we all go for a coffee and get to know each other? That would be the weekend of the 17th/18th. I would suggest sooner, but this weekend might be too short of notice, and the weekend after is thanksgiving.

    Now, what side of town is everyone located on? I don't need addresses, I'm just trying to find someplace central to everyone, however back in the old days of FanForce, we used to meet at the Starbucks inside the Chapters in West Ed Mall. If that works for everyone let me know. If not, I'm flexible. :)

    Great to see this is starting to move forward. Cory have you joined the face book page. Do a search for Edmonton fanforce and request to join.

    As for meeting up I am pretty busy the next couple weekends. I live near Whyte. I used to work at Happy Harbor Comics downtown and if we can fit in between their events schedule we can certainly meet there. It's central and doesn't have to cost anyone anything (well, unless you're like me and lack self control when it comes to comics...)

    The other thing we should focus on is recruitment. Share this group with your Star Wars pals!

    Central works best for me. That weekend should work great. :)

    Ok, how about Saturday the 17th at Happy Harbor Comics? Their event calendar says they have nothing planned then. If anyone has any suggestions speak up. My wife, me and maybe another old member can make it. :)

    What a blast from the past. Too bad I'm no longer in Edmonton to help get the ball rolling again.
