If there is a thread for this I'm sorry- I did not see one.

I live in Oregon, and have a heck of a time finding EU Star Wars fans- I've made a few myself, but none have the passion for the EU that I do.


I was curious do others have this issue?


If so I was thinking drop states you live and what not- if someone has the same state PM and see about hanging out- I know most of you EUCers already know everyone else, but I'm in a constant search to find an Uber-Geek living close that I can kick it with.

I live in Florida, and know one other EUCer who does too. Never thought about meeting with them though; maybe when CV comes we can organize an EUC member lunch? The members of the Star Wars blogs did it for CIV.

I live in Louisiana myself, rather far from Oregon. But I would love to meet the other EUC members. I'm not sure when we could ever manage that, but it'd be fun. Smile

Most obvious place would be CV, depending on location. Or perhaps Star Wars weekends at Disney, but again, that depends on everyones location and distance to Disney. We are very spread out. The EUCast hosts come from all four corners of the U.S. Razz

We are very spread out, and I think that's fun. But it's hard to get together, yes. Maybe we'll just have to do it bits at a time? OMB meets Autobon, Mara Jade meets Sword. Sword meets Joe, OMB meets Skuldren. Aush meets Salaris, Mara Jade meets Autobon. OMB meets Sword, Skuldren meets Salaris. And so on. You know...one at a time! That would be just as hard as everybody all at once, though. Smile

Well, Autobon has already told me we will never meet, so your entire cycle just got ruined. Wink

It's hard to find people with such passion for EU where we live, I mean don't get me wrong plenty of fans, but no EU type fans. It would rock to meet some more people into the EU, I've met a few 501st members from a neighboring city, my son has had a 501st presence at his last 4 birthdays he's 5.

My son loves it, but is still to young to get into the books. But he can school me at Battlefront now- he went from SW Legos to the battlefronts and loves it.

See in Oregon I live at the end with fewer people per square mile. I always "geek out" on my friends, some enjoy it, others I can tell humor me cause they love me Wink I wonder what state has the highest % of Uber Geeks like myself?

With everyone on the fringes, I'm smack in the middle Very Happy Of course Aush is north of the middle, but a whole state North.

Well looks like we've got a variety. Maybe a prize for the EUCer who gets a Uber Geek local to join up Laughing

I live in Canada, far from everyone so It would be a long travel for me.

For Canadians how difficult is it to find other Uber Geeks?

My best friend just moved there and has been trying to get me and my wife to follow- which we've admitted we may someday.
