    Here's an update on what's going on around the globe with different FanForce chapters. Be inspired by all the fun that's taking place!

    Comic-Con International is coming up soon in San Diego. Be sure to swing by the Fan Force booth upstairs if you're going!

    Reading PA is talking again! A noob walked in looking for someone to talk to and made a friend. We're hoping they continue discussions and revive the chapter.

    Buffalo, NY
    1. Participated in the Camp Good Days & Special Times Annual Gala June 20. Costumed characters posed for pictures and added to the "A New Hope" theme for the evening. Camoers were treated to goodie bags from the characters. Members of Garrison Excelsior were on hand to help as well.

    2. North Ridge members also participated in the Buffalo Bisons 2nd Annual Star Wars Night at the Ballpark. Members signed autographs, posed for pictures, and participated in on-field promotions during the game. Darth Vader announced the starting lineups and lead the ballpark in signing Take Me Out to the Ballgame. Once again, members of Garrison Excelior were on hand as well as Garrison Carida.

    3. The North Ridge held a meeting June 27 to greet new members. Ten new members were introduced to the group and welcomed with a special raffle. Go kart racing followed the meeting with Bobachris12 edging StoyBoy720 bu the slimest of margins.

    FanForce Updates like this have been posted in the FanForce Communications forum during the spring. Since few read those I've taken it to posting it all over the Europe region. As you see information about Europe is severly lacking. Have you had a meeting, have you had a particularly great/funny/memorable discussion, or do you just want to make people aware of what's going on in your forum. Please tell me and I'm going to make sure that it gets mentioned in the updates.
