    Hello all,

    If you don’t know me, I’m Moonshadow, one of the co-Administrators of the Jedi Resource Center / Jedi Gatherings Group.  We recently upgraded our site and I’d like to invite all of you to check it out.

    One of our primary purposes is helping to bring Jedi together in real life, so it would be great if anyone interested would post their location on our Jedi Map.  It’ll really help Jedi from nearby areas to find each other and hopefully start offline Chapters.  (As a precaution, please just post your city rather than your exact address, though.)

    My main reason in posting here, however, is to let you know about our upcoming Gatherings next Summer and Winter.  If you aren’t familiar with the concept of Jedi Gatherings, Gatherings are basically a 3 day or longer event during which Jedi and other interested parties come together in real life to share, learn, and apply the real-life aspects of being a Jedi.  These Gatherings usually include people from all over the world and are always a lot of fun and a great chance to meet fellow Jedi offline.

    I’m very pleased to announce that we will be having both our Annual Gathering, which will be a 4-day event held at a Michigan retreat center with fully catered meals, and also our first ever official International Gathering which will be a 5-day event held in New Zealand at a private residence.

    Here are the basic details, but please check out the links for the full brochures.  If you’d like to see some pictures from last year’s Gathering, you can also check here as well.

    Oh no.  That means I have to go back and edit all my other Gathering announcements.  Glad you caught it early at least.  :p

    Hi again,

    I just wanted to bump this thread and post a quick reminder about the upcoming Michigan and New Zealand Gatherings.  The Michigan Gathering is fast approaching and the final early bird registration deadline is on June 1st.  So if you want to get the discounted price, be sure to submit your registration and deposit before then.  Attending a Gathering is truly a wonderful experience and definitely worth making the trip.  This is your opportunity to finally meet other Jedi off the internet and in real life!
