I'll arrive in the early afternoon Thursday and spend a big chunk of the day in the Will Call line. :(

I'll also be at the Opening Ceremonies at 8:30, and I'm 70% going to meet up with StarWars.com forumers at 11. And I'm meeting the other Unofficial Clone Wars guys sometime Thursday probably.

I'll mostly be at the EU and collecting events. Maybe try for a few actor autographs, depending on how horrendous the lines are.

I'm leaving on Sunday so I doubt I'll have time for anything that day.

I fear this trip will be very short spent, financialy. I'm shelling out a grand and a half at least tommorow to pay for my car insureance, registration and title.

That leaves me with money for gas and food. :P I hear if your nice to the room service people, they leave extra mint's on the pillows?

Hey, how many of you guys are bringing (or will have access to) PCs?

I plan to, so I can check the net for info at night, post meeting updates for those I don't have cells for and whatever.

I really want to meet up with a bunch of you guys (after so many years chatting with most of you it would be WRONG if we were at the same convention and didn't even say hi).....and that's why I think I'm going to need the PC.

Maybe we can start an addtional thread once we're there to let people know what we're planning on or whatever at night.

I'm bringing my laptop, mainly because to an extent I'll be on call, but also just in case we need to upload any pics or stories to JD.

I don't write in much but I check the forums daily.  I've traded with some of you.  Me and my wife plan on meeting everyone at the Hooters Wednesday night.  If all the early fanclub passes aren't spoken for, we would love to have some for the Saturday Lucus event.  If not, it would be cool to put a face with all the names.

Hey, that's great to hear Jeremy!  I already had your name on the list up there, since you'd chimed in a while back, but nice to get some confirmation again.  Looks like you know where to find us too...  ;)

As for the extra FC passes, I think a lot of them are already spoken for, but if everyone who's a FC member brings them along to toss into the pot (assuming they don't need them), then hopefully we'll be able to come up with some extras for everyone here...

I'll toss some pix in here soon, so folks can get a refresher course on who they're looking for when they get there.

Since I am going Friday I can hang out with Mon Mothma.  Which is kind of cool actually.  LOL!  I am going to get her autograph that day as corny as it sounds. 

I can rub elbows with the one who said "Many Bothans died to bring us this information." 

Should I have her sign her carded action figure or a photo?  Hmmm.....

Go with the Carded figure, Mate.

Good news, my insurance premium dropped 400 dollars! More cash for the con!

Look for the 92 plymoth cold with the sign in the window that says:

"My other Transport is the Millenium Falcon."

Thanks for keeping track of this list Matt.  I see our regular female members are planning on being there, which my wife will be glad to see.  She usually has no problem fitting in, but I think she's a little nervous that Hooters will be one big penis party and she'll feel a tad out of place.   :)

More of a small penis party, considering Colman is leading the charge, but I suppose that's just a detail (albeit a small one).
