  1. Would like to be updated of the tentative schedules. Sign up for Padawan lightsaber training and light speed dating for dad.

  2. Does anyone know if Fisher, Morrison, and Eckstein are signing autographs? If so what dates?

  3. As an active 501st and RL member, I would be willing to sit on the Meet the Fan Groups panel if needed. Thanks.

  4. Can someone please update the site with correct info and registration forms for this year. When is pre-judging for costume contest?
