Hello there all

This is an Arizona (USA) Social event I started on RebelScum and now branching out to this forum. This is short notice here but this was in the works before the Joe Y incident. Here are the original details:

Just announing the 3rd Arizona Social. So you ask yourself why would we hold such an event in 115 degree weather... well, we're not. Drum roll please......... We're heading to mountains in Flagstaff Arizona for some cool weather, eats, drinks and of course talk Star Wars. As a special bonus, DarthTad will do a personal tour of his Star Wars collection known as the "Darthenon". Without further delay here are the details:

Date:
Saturday
July 14th 2012

Time:
4:00 PM

Location:
Beaver Street Brewery
11 S. Beaver St.
Flagstaff AZ 86001
http://www.beaverstreetbrewery.com/


So how will I know where the official Arizona Social table is located once I arrive at Beaver Street Brewery? Just look for the following on the table and that would be us:

OT: AZ Social  41ttuqcGSYL._SL500_AA300_


All Star Wars fans are invited regardless of focus. In other words, you don't have to be a vintage collector to join in on the fun. PM me if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns about the event

There will be no language filters so it will be a free for all... This will be for a more mature audience only.

I hope to see you there.


Well, there you have it folks. I hope to see you there and/or at future events.

Paul

Just a bump up for this one since we are getting close. So if you're not going to the Comic-Con in San Diego... this event is the next best thing.

I hope to see new faces there. Everyone is Welcome

PS: DarthTad says they do have indoor plumbing up there so the toilets will work just fine poo


See ya there

Sorry for the delayed update on this one. It all started at Beaver Street Brewery.... Ummm, beer good drinking2

OT: AZ Social  BEAVER-STREET-BREWERY

A big thanks to Ted, I mean Tad for opening up his home for this event. He has a quite humble attitude towards his collection. I can say after tour de Vader (AKA: “The Darthenon")... It's most impressive indeed.

So for those who did show up to AZ Social, each received a ROTJ Vader (Pointing Picture) MOC with a Bobba Fett sticker offer. Here is a picture of Tad with that give away:

OT: AZ Social  Img_7510

OK, that's not true but I had you going didn't I Razz The Vader came from my collection which I passed on to DathTad's "Darthenon". I thought it fit quite well in his collection.

Here is a picture of myself with a little Vader back ground:

OT: AZ Social  Img_7511

I'll need to learn to take more pictures at these events. I guess after two growlers of beers it affected the picture taking Very Happy

Here is DarthTad's Limelight, it looks down right now but maybe Tad is updating it (hopefully it will be up soon):

I didn't get to see Tad's latest Vader addition in person but here it is in all its glory:

OT: AZ Social  70317310

It was a very fun event even tho it was just three people for this one. I know this event was a good drive for those folks who live in the valley but I encourage people to come to these events and meet the local collectors. You might be very surprised what Star Wars awesomeness can be seen at these events. If you're reading this post now and live close... please stop on by to join in on the fun. See ya there next time

It was a good time.

The highlights for me included:

1. Growlers of kick ass beer
2. Talking Star Wars
3. The arrival of my latest purchase from Paul
4. Our discussion regarding how I should convert a Roomba vacuum to a Mouse Droid vacuum
5. Our discussion about the possibility of creating a R2 unit with a midget inside, and a glory hole.

I hope more folks will start going to these, they really are a blast! And my last big purchased arrived 2 days after this one, so the next time we tour the Darthenon, I'll have a decent update for folks.

Thanks again, Paul, for organizing this!

And Marco, I'm not sure I want to ruin that thread with my ugly mug!

I guess that was the beer talking... or was it? Wink I think we can make these happen but we'll need to skip the glory hole part Shocked

It was great fun Tad and I'm very glad I got a chance to see your collection in person. I think next time will be in November time frame so don't miss the next one.

More to come... so stay tuned
