Join us on Saturday, August 30th for a trip to the ballpark! The Kane County Cougars will be hosting a Star Wars night and Chicago Force will be there. Please purchase tickets for the lawn seats and we will meet along the third base line. There will even be a Star Wars themed fireworks display!
Chicago Force will be going to enjoy the fun at the Joliet Public Library’s Annual Star Wars Days. Check out their website http://jolietlibrary.org/
Thanks to our Fan Table at C2E2, Chicago Force raised $255 for the Cystic Fibrous Foundation.
Here is photos from the presentation:
Today was a big day. Not only would it be our first panel, covering Kenobi by John Jackson Miller, but it would also be when we held our raffle to benefit the Cystic Fibrous Foundation.
And of course, we held the raffle! We collected more than $250!
Here are some pictures of the winners:
The morning of the 25th, the first day of C2E2 was quiet. Little did we know how much would change for us by the end of the day.
Of course, the big galaxy-shaking news dropped that day, “The EU was dead, long live the EU!” We received the news that the Star Wars EU would now be considered Legends, and a new EU would start in the fall. This made the Del Rey panel that day a not-to-be missed event. We went out in, well, Force, and listened to the panel with rapt attention. New Star Wars author Kevin Hearne was there. And he had a book signing at the Del Rey booth right after. All in all, a fun eventful day.
Chicago Force was proud to have a table in the Fan Village this year at C2E2. Three of it’s members traveled to McCormick Place to set up the table, here’s some pics:
