The basis of my attraction to this group is my interest in, "Star Wars" as well as other Sci-fi productions. I am currently attempting to join the Dune Sea Garrison of Troop 501 to benefit children and become friends with fellow troops. I also like to play with my nephew who has discovered, "The force" and is a fan of the movies. He has even decorated his bedroom in a Sci-fi theme!
I am looking to find people with similar interests who I can enjoy spending time with. I'd like to find a group of people who are not embarrassed to, "admit" that they enjoy doing things that others have labelled as being nerdy or over-obsessive about. Too many people say things like, "It's just a movie!". That shouldn't mean that I'm not allowed to spend time with people who have something in common with me. I'd like to have fun doing something I enjoy.
Regular interaction with members of the group, both event-based and on a social level. I'd just like make some new friends who I can go to all sorts of conventions and film openings with who want to be there rather than are there because they drove me there.
I am 41, and I have been in Phoenix since '79, and have a BA from ASU. I'm a self-employed painter of abstract-expressionist acrylics some of which have been purchased or are on display for purchase in many locations.
