August 24 - 26, 2001 : Toronto, OntarioClick on Thumbnail for larger picture
SFX is part of a large annual convention which also consists of a comic book con and an anime con.
The 501st Canadian Garrison (501st.ca) intercepted alarming reports that the Rebel Legion
was going to attempt to locate members of the Rebellion at SFX. This
had to be verified, and if found accurate, stopped. Darth "Robin" Vader
led the Canadian Garrison Commander, TX741 and his loyal troops, TK878,
TR1125, and TI829 on their patrol of SFX. We sucessfully located and
arrested Rebel scum RT501, and the Canadian Base Commander of the Rebel
Legion, Jedi avatar.
To further bolster the Star Wars presence at SFX were members of Young Jedi Niagara: Chris "Obi Wan", Nick "Han Solo", and Graeme "Boba Fett".
No sci-fi convention would be complete without some actors from Star
Wars. Fans lined up to get an autograph from several Star Wars actors,
including Peter Mayhew (aka. Chewbacca). Mr. Mayhew also took time to pose with us for the fans who eagerly snapped pictures. Garrick Hagon (Biggs), Paul Blake (Greedo), Richard LeParmentier (Admiral Motti), and Jerome Blake (Rune Haako, Mas Amedda) also made appearances at the convention.
Members of the Toronto Long Line from the Toronto Fan Force also attended the convention and hosted a dinner social at "The Old Spaghetti Factory" in downtown Toronto. They had some good spag'! Jerome Blake and Paul Blake joined the group for after-dinner drinks.
Thanks go out to Mrs. Angie Mayhew.
The whole gang had a good time goofing around at the convention, taking
in the large dealers area, and posing for pictures for many convention
