    Alright soooooo....a few very important things. First of all we never, ever, ever bash other groups. I don't care what they do, we just do not do it. There are often way more things in play in any given situation and it makes us look bad to take sides. Secondly, the Rebel Legion and the 501st Legion are two very distinct groups. I see them being used here interchangeably and they are not at all run the same nor do they make decisions on behalf of each other. Same goes for the Mercs. Different groups, different rules, different command. Be the better group, folks. Keep your judgments and opinions about other groups to yourself. It isn't at all becoming.

    The floorplan for Sci-fi was released yesterday and it looks like the 405th is on the main floor to the right after entering. And also just outside of the Workshop area. My booth appears to be in the same spot as last year, just a few booths away from the 405th.

    The cafe menu has also been released. You can get a decent meal for under $10. We will have water and sports drinks at the tables for members use.


    On a different note I need to start getting a full list of who is coming, what days they are coming, if they have costume or not. I also need to know who needs sleeping places so we can make sure everyone is covered.

    Thanks guys

    If you give me his pass on Friday or Saturday, we will have it ready for him when he gets in Saturday night / Sunday morning.

    Hey guys, if you want both Steak and a buffet, you can go to Gourmet Buffet. They serve steaks there last time I checked. It is one of the best restaurants in Altoona (in my opinion).


    Keep in mind that scheduling the dinner for Saturday is also scheduling it against the afterparty. Last year there were many members that went to the afterparty and I am sure there will be plenty that want to go this year.

    I am from Altoona and as far as I know, there are no Kosher Restaurants in the area (other than possibly Tom & Joe's, but I am not sure on that one).

    Dinner is on Saturday. Photo shoot is on Sunday, Convention ends at 8 After party does not start till 9. So we can sneak dinner in between con and after party. <turns Ashuraa typing system off and returns you to your regularly scheduled Kusak post> I hate being taken over by An ashuraa fox spirit..

    Anyhow My choice is Texas Roadhouse. CHEESE FRIES I tell you and ROAD KILL.

    After party is Saturday. It is in a bowling alley

    Just thinking logistics but that 1 hour gap between con and afterparty is really only about 40 minutes with travel time, if you can actually leave on time. Fast food would be a valid option. Chick-fil-a has decent food, is fast and also on the way to the bowling alley. They are open until 10 and have a large seating area for us. Another option is Dennys and eat n park however it will take awhile for food. the bowling alley itself has food which is an option. I would strongly suggest staying away from anywhere that closes at 9 or is buffet that late because 1 it's rude to employees trying to close up and 2 the food isn't guaranteed to be fresh less than 2 hours before they close. I personally would suggest chick-fil-a or the bowling alley due to what I said and also because it won't break the piggy bank.

    After we pack up our booths and what not and drive through Saturday night traffic, it could be 8:15 until we get to the restaurant (btw Texas Roadhouse, good choice). And depending on where we go, it could be even later. Additionally, the after party serves food so it would seem kind of redundant to rush and go eat then immediately go to another place serving food. This is just my opinion though, don't take any of what I say too seriously because you may have something worked out that I am not seeing.

    Is there any reason everyone is so adamant about having it Saturday? It just seems to me Friday would be the best option.

    I agree 100% with Frank here; Fast food such as Chick-fil-a would be about the only feasible option (time-wise) if it has to be Saturday for some reason.

    We can do it Friday for the dinner if more of you would prefer that day.

    Just keep in mind times please. Most of us won't be walking out of there at 8 or 9 right on the dot, then to get through Altoona traffic on a weekend night/stop lights it'll probably take at least 20 mins if not longer...I will not walk into a sit down restaurant 40-30 mins until closing, especially with that many of us...it's just rude and not very courteous. I know Frankie tried to say it nicely but I'll just be blunt about it...

    we have already decided that Friday is a better night. It also looks at this time that we will be going to Outback. I was listening to your and Franks comments.
