- We'll have lots of space for the JediOKC, Ghostbusters, and Colonial Marine tables, as well as costume and prop displays.
- There will be an "80's Night," where everyone is encouraged to dress up 80's style. We'll need 80's music and decor, so if you can provide something, please let us know on the website!
- Any activities you can come up with the for the "80's night" or throughout the con would be most appreciated.

BOX O' HOPE DRAWING #2 - DarthKyle won!
- Thanks for the Halloween stuff, and the event announcements on the front page!
- Club Member Business
- Darth Mondragon (Michael) will be our interim council member starting January 2009!
- Don't forget to vote on the forum for the 2008 Halloween Costume Contest!
- 6-month Council office extension
- The council discussed the relatively "short" term of the 6-month council member. We found it agreeable to extend the term to 12 months, and to put it to a vote of the club.
- We'll have a show-of-hands vote at the Thursday and Saturday meetings to extend the 6-month council member term to 12 months. If passed, this is an amendment to the Club Charter. The 12-month council member may still choose to step down early if they wish.
- The Thursday meeting vote was 16-3 in favor of extending the term.
- The Clone Wars series watch party!
- Ambush (Oct. 3) - Jedi Master Yoda and three clone troopers -- Jek (Jjeck?), Thire, and Rys (Gree?) -- must face off against Count Dooku's dreaded assassin Ventress and her massive droid army to prove the Jedi are strong enough to protect a strategic planet and forge a treaty for the Republic.
- Rising Malevolence (Oct. 3) - An attack by a devastating new Separatist weapon leaves Jedi Master Plo Koon and his clone troopers struggling to survive until Anakin and Ahsoka can find them.
- Shadow of Malevolence (Oct. 10) - With the help of his Padawan Ahsoka and Jedi Master Plo Koon, Anakin utilizes new long-range Y-wing bombers to lead a bold strike on General Grievous' warship the Malevolence and its destructive weapon.
- Destroy Malevolence (Oct. 17) - Padmé Amidala and C-3PO are taken hostage by General Grievous, leaving Anakin and Obi-Wan to save the Senator and complete the destruction of the Malevolence.
- Rookies (Oct. 24) - Alone on a distant outpost, clone officers Rex and Cody must inspire their rookie unit to believe in themselves to stave off a Droid Commando invasion.
- Due to "technical difficulties" with the DVR-to-VCR transfer process, we were teased with this episode, then cut off!
- Friday: Downfall of a Droid (Nov. 7) - R2-D2 is lost during a fierce space battle -- and Anakin must find him before the Separatists discover the Jedi military secrets locked in his memory banks.
Technology isn't intrinsically good or evil. It's how it's used. Like the death ray.
