Welcome to the SWGFA, GeneralKenobi7! This is indeed the right place to introduce yourself.

We will be having our first event of 2010 in mid January, so stay tuned for updates on an exact date and location. I would be happy to add you to the mailing list as well, just let me know.

We move around the state between Tampa, Orlando and Port Saint Lucie right now with other areas pending.

Our next event and possibly the one after that will be in Orlando.

I am in the 501st (any others here?)
Welcome to the area and welcome to the SWGFA, GK. Hope to meet you soon. We have a couple of 501st members in our ranks (Dale and Audrey come to mind) but they don't often speak up on this forum. I'd like to have more of a connection between our group and the 501st as we're all passionate fans of the Saga. -Campbell

Great event, glad I could finally make it again. Looking forward to the next one.
A few photos from Saturday night:

Nice shirt Chris! Where ever could you find such a fine, fine product? (hint)


I just discovered this thread. Cool, I didn't know GFA was on RS. I never leave the Force Cast area, but I will have to make a point to try and watch this thread as well.

Anyway, the reason for this post is because we live in St. Augustine, and I was wondering if there is anyone else in this group that lives in the first coast area. I see that "Hail_Lord_Helmet" is in Jacksonville, cool. Any one else?

I wear this shirt with pride, Mark!


Yes, please speak up if you are in the St. Augustine area or there about! We'd love to get a group going there to join the Alliance.

Yeah, we need to wrangle the Jawas more. Speak up if you want to creat the First Coast Star Wars Club or something to that effect.

By the same token, we'd like to welcome all Floridians (in space or in spirit) to truly make the make the Alliance Grand.

Yep here in Jacksonville. We had a start of a Club/etc here in Jax, even had a Private forum created here from the Mods. Chris can be the one to answer if that still exists. It kind of broke apart, then some of that group have actually moved away because of Navy obligation, etc. It is what it is.

There are still a few that use the private forum, yes.

First event of 2010 has been announced!

Location:

The SWGFA will be meeting at a new comic book shop that just opened up called Heroes Landing. Our huge thanks to the owners, Todd Merrick & Stu Cohen, for opening up their store to us! The physical address for the shop is 12348 Roper Blvd. Clermont, FL 34711. If you have questions about directions, please call the store at 352-242-XMEN (9636).

Day and time:

We'll be meeting on Saturday, January 16th from 5:00pm to 9:00pm.

Food & Drinks:

This will be a potluck style event where everyone brings some type of food to share. Drinks will be available for purchase at the store which includes Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Dr Pepper, Aquafina Water, Orange and Grape Crush, and other similar drinks. They also sell lots of novelty energy drinks like Ghostbusters, Futurama Slurm and more.

What to bring:

• Bring yourself for starters. We want you to come and enjoy yourself with all the other Star Wars fans out there. Bring a friend too!
• Feel free to bring items to buy/sell/trade. There will be a limited amount of space for display and swapping collectibles.
• Some type of food to share with everyone! (not required for attendance)

501st Legion:

I'm very pleased to announce that the 501st Legion will be in attendance! Be sure to bring your camera!

Costumes:

Everyone is encouraged to come in costume! If you have something you've been working on and you need help, bring it. You never know who might be around that could give you some pointers or even assist you with the construction of your costume.

Store discount:

All SWGFA, Rebelscum.com, TheForce.net and 501st Legion members will receive 15% off all in store purchases. Just be sure to mention that you saw this story!

MegaCon:

A large group of members will be attending MegaCon in March as it already has a large Star Wars presence lined up. We'll be discussing our plans for this show as well as our April event.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to email me at chris.wyman@verizon.net. May the Force be with you...always. We'll see you on January 16th!

It just friggin' figures. You literally have the event 2 miles from me, and I can't go because it's my closing weekend at work. Stupid work!

I guess, if anyone wants to, you can all swing by the Clermont Super Target later that night to say "Hi!" I'll be there from 3pm-11pm. Come see me in Electronics

Ahh, Chuck!


You really can't get that one night off with over a month's notice?

This is not calling out Chuck- I have a job that makes it hard to get time off as well. However, I've noticed that a lot of people don't even consider adjusting their schedules for these meetings and only come if there's nothing going on.

I can tell you, they are a lot of fun, and it's so nice to be in a mob of people that all share our love of Star Wars. This is the start of a very exciting year for Florida Star Wars fans and I urge everyone that can come to make an effort to be there.

Again, Chuck, I'm not referring to your situation in particular. That's a bummer if you just can't make it. Happens to the best of us.

I'm still floating around St. Augustine - the private forums for Jax still have a few people too. I got laid-off a year ago so it extremely curtailed my SW spending but I may try and make it for the next meeting!

I have to say being with this group of people in florida is like being with family, the meetings are a blast. And a major plus with it is the hole family loves Star Wars.

"Han Shot First Coast Faction?"
We love it! I can see the logo now. It has the iconic Han blaster over a big "FIRST" inside the Star Wars word-box. The new SWGFA logo is now the SECOND highest thing on my list.

I have 2 TURBO TANKS (MIB) that Im looking to sell.

Im only asking $80 each (obo considered).

I'd be willing to trade for:
BMF
and the GI Joe Mobile Command Center (NOT the Pit. The MCC is not the same as the new Pit playset.)
Airsoft guns or possibly gear
(Also looking for a Pug puppy, if anyone know where I could get one)

I live in BRANDON, Fl
