I was at the one in Roseville, MN today with Daniel Wallace and Troy Denning. It was a great time, good question and answer session, and the 501st Legion was awesome. I got a lot of souvenirs (including a Kenobi poster). All around, a great time!

^I should have done that with my phone! But they were both very excited about Episode VII - Troy Denning says he's a big fan of J.J. Abrams and expects great things.
