Star Wars Marathon on Star Wars Day. The plan is to watch 3 films back to back starting at noon.  Films will be chosen based upon how attendees vote, however based upon comments it looks like the original trilogy is winning by a landslide.

    In case anyone else is interested in coming, we just started episode 3 and we will be continuing with episode 4,5, and 6. Feel free to come at any time, and there is plenty of room.

    Text me at[masked] if you want to join in on the Nerf gun fun.

  • Michael D

    We will probably be going outside for a Nerf gun battle due to the awesome weather! Just wanted to let those who have not yet made it know so they could join in!

    I don't think I can make it. :-(

    Unfortunately if its only going to be 3 of the movies I won't get to make it because I work till 5. I was hoping to at least catch the second half.

      You can come anyhow, watch the last movie, and then stay for "Ink" afterwards.

    I will be late to this event. Sorry all, but I am working till about 3. I'll be home around that time.

      So does that mean the event will be pushed to start at 3?

      May 4, 2013

    • Stacy

      No. The event starts at Noon. As of 2:30 AM last night (game night) someone else will assist with hosting this event at Michael's house. Jonathan graciously offered to arrive early to ensure someone knows how to work the DVD player. Also, we preloaded episode IV into the DVD player since the majority seems to want to view the original trilogy.

    Hey, I can't make it, but I have the versions of the dvds for 4-6 that have the original unaltered theatrical cuts on a second disc and I'd be happy to let you borrow them if people wanted to see greedo shoot first and the original anakin ghost and the original boba voice and etc.

    • Tom D.

      I just realized I made an ass of myself. I should have said "see HAN shoot first" d'oh!

      May 3, 2013

    • Michael D

      That doesn't make an "ass" of you as you so eloquently put it Tom! It may be nice to see the original option.

    I am able to show Episodes 1-3 here. After that the house is all ready taken with Surreal Saturday. If someonw could host the second half that would be great!

    This event will take place starting at 12:00 noon.

      I agree.

    • Stacy

      I whole-heartedly second that motion

    ATTENTION: Michael and Andrew cannot host this event after all. Unless Andrew or myself get a volunteer to host (just someone with a TV, DVD player, and room for 22 (carpet seating acceptable) who's willing to have 20+ geeks in their house) we'll be forced to cancel this event.

    I can't get off of work for this =(. I'll still be there for Ink though!

  • Andrew

    Christopher, can you accomodate 22 people if you do host this?

    April 23, 2013

    • Roxanna

      You could always try breaking up the event by geographical area? Games night seems to work that out nicely.

      April 24, 2013

  • Jackson

    Chronological or numerical order?

    • Stacy

      Roxanna - It's all good. I was just making a little joke. I should have added a smiley face at the end of my last comment.

      1 · April 24, 2013

    • Roxanna

      I was making a joke too! But most of my jokes are deadpan, even not in text. And sorry Chris! If there was any way to change my upcoming diversion from this event I would be on that faster than I am on Star Wars events.

  • Michael D

    I'm so glad i signed up for this activity myself... lol

    April 17, 2013

  • Abby

    Really looking forward to this, may have to come by a little late if I have to work that day.

    cant wait! May the 4th be with you....always.

    2 · February 28, 2013

  • Roxanna

    You had me at "Star Wars". But just so you know... May 25th is also Star Wars Day. Officially. In Los Angeles county.

    February 28, 2013

    • Roxanna

      Oh, it's also Star Wars Day. Both dates are correct. I just wanted you to know that LA decided to make a declaration for May 25th because ANH was released on May 25th, 1977.

      And I know that because in my head everyone should know it - like knowing your own phone number.

      (I really love my Star Wars and now I feel waaaay too crazy for saying all that.)

      It's cool :-) I love learning new and random facts.

      February 28, 2013

  • Naomi

    I thought this would be an awesome way for the Geek Club to celebrate Star Wars Day. All we need now is a location.

    February 27, 2013

    • Roxanna

      I would be willing to host and I can move my larger TV into the living room, but I don't know how many people I can fit/how much comfy seating I have considering the length of the event.

      But I do have a house packed with Star Wars. Lots of Star Wars.

    Sounds awesome, but I'm going to be celebrating a friend's wedding in Indy that day.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
