    Benjamin here. New to Chicago and to FanForce. Just met some nice folks from the book club down at Fudruckers, the local cantina... My apologies for not remembering their login names here...

    Been a fan for a long while; the episode I hype and comraderie really congealed my love for George's original trilogy.

    :cool: Welcome! We were such a big group at Fuddrucker's that it was hard to speak with everyone. There will be more gatherings to get to know each other. Those who couldn't come to Fuddruckers missed some delicious brownies for Joshua's birthday...

    I am Cathy. Wow Lemminglord I am also new to the area...crazy coincidence. I enjoyed meeting the bookclub at Fuddruckers on Saturday. I am a fan of the OT, I have yet to read any of the novels. You book people are going to have to convince me they are worth reading.

    Natalie it was awesome to get to meet you in person. I can't wait to meet again.

    For me, this is actually more like a reintroduction. I used to post regularly on this board back in '03 (at the height of the Peaches/Sithman Wars), and even attended a couple official functions. I fell off the CF wagon for a while, with only a handful of posts over the next year or so. But after a recent move to South Dakota (bright center...farthest from...etc.), I started jonesing for all things Star Wars again, and decided to check out the ol' gang.

    As geographic distance appears to be no obstacle for the likes of DarthAstuart and Bosh_Talk, I decided to reenter the fray.

    So greetings to former friends and acquaintances, and hello to the new faces.

    welcome back to the boards,

    ref distance problem.....well, for me....only with other galaxies at this time:)

    ref Bosh Talk and Darth Astuart........they left?

    ref South Dakota....very cool place,

    In the early 70-s, I made several trips out there to help map and explore
    Wind Cave South Dakota.....Last time I was there
    (the mid 80-s),

    The offical cave map that was posted had a crawlway named after me,

    ..........there is also a pit with my name in a way,
    am unsure how it looks on the original map-logs,
    but I remember it as PEEK-IN PIT, with Pekin being my last name.


    Bosh probly knows,

    everyone who ever use to be in the area


    where they are now:D

    Hey all, Ive been around for a while just trolling the boards, so I though Id finally introduce myself. Im an avid SW fan, I live in downtown Chicago. In my spare time I build luxoen powered lightsabers, and I also do some costuming. I attended C3 and C4 and had a blast. Ive never really gotten involved in any local events, though I did attend Wizard world con last year. I like to read and I am currently enjoying the Legacy of the Force series. Thats about it for me, so Hi everyone.

    Darth Caedus,

    Welcome to our little group.

    Since you are into the Legacy of the Force series (I like your sig), I highly recommend coming to a book club discussion. We are doing the new Death Star book before the holiday party, but we pick up the Legacy series at our January meeting (4th Saturday of the month) with the 4th book. We will stick with Legacy until its conclusion, discussing the ninth and final book at the end of June.

    Check out the Errant Venture thread for more into.

    I work in Glendale Heights so I may have to get my milkshakes there, because my milkshakes bring all the boys to my yard. And damn right, they're better than yours.

    well, been about 5-months,

    and it seems like an ok time to bump this thread back to the top,
    in hopes of finding some more Star Wars fans in Chicago.

    most recent posters on this thread seem to have come and gone.

    ok, only a month this time,

    but with the CF BBQ this weekend, thought we should have our intro thread
    on the first page.

    and to encourage any and all to join in

    please note that the guy who started this thread
    is from South Bend, and a lot of fun to hang out with
    either on the boards or in person:)
