Chicago Force arrived the day before the convention would start. Here’s some of the sights on day zero.
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:
You read that right, in two short weeks, C2E2 will be underway. I’m getting ready, are you?
