Southern Ontario?
« on: March 14, 2011, 02:38:20 PM »
Is there a G.U.I.L.D or Dueling Society in southern Ontario like Toronto to Brantford to the border?

hey Darius, i was actually thinking about starting a saber club in toronto. i know a few people that are also into custom sabers and would love to have something going on over here.

i think the hardest part is finding a central location where everyone can meet. i.e. someones house with a work station.

I'm down in Windsor, but TO is a bit of a hike to do some dueling.

it would be more than just dueling i guess. i mean it would be like a little club. we all get together, talk sabers, share ideas, parts, etc.  we all can have some snacks, order pizza, watch movies. etc. etc. 

but like i said, it was just an idea of mine.  know a lot of people over here that would love to do it, its just finding someone who would be willing to host.  :D

we all know our wives are super excited about the idea of having a bunch of strangers come over and talk about lightsabers, hahahahahaha  ;D

I used to go to a Dr Who fan club an hour or so from where I live, very much like you describe, we would talk of Daleks, watch an episode etc. But no one around has anything like a Star Wars club here, that'll own a Saber dueling  club. Some are lucky I guess. But it was great fun just being with like minded people.

Oh don't get me wrong, I'm not against the idea at all.  But it wouldn't be an hour drive for me, it would be a 4 hour drive. Lol.  That makes it a tad more unrealistic.

yeah, if its a long drive, it might not be worth it.  unless you are going this way anyways, to visit friends or family or even go shopping with the wife. then i can see making a pit stop to the party, but i agree, its a pretty long drive. not to mention gas prices are up the roof.  :-\

YES!

I've been off these forum pages for a while. Partially because there were barely any Southern Ontarians here. But now....

Good ol' Smokie lives in Cambridge. I'm down to meet and greet my fellow Canuckle-heads, and I would love to learn the forms properly along with other people.

Hope to meet you all soon.

Hey Smokie, cool, more locals  ;D

like i mentioned below, there are a few of us in Toronto that are also on the forums, Jedi_Rick, who is currently helping me convert a few MR and HFX sabers, Janmizzle, who is one of my close friends and partner in crime, and Greco18, who is also a cool guy that i have had over my place a few times.

we gotta all get together.  currently i am having a contractor working on my deck. once thats complete, we can have a BBQ during the summer. once the sun goes down, the sabers come on, and it will be amazing.

my backyard is pretty big. its 222 feet long and 85 feet in width . im sure thats plenty of room for dueling  ;D

Excellent.

I would like to offer you (and every other Canadian) this pic I made for our Avatars. Like a logo.

Did anyone go to that lightsaber battle in front of the R.O.M. a few years back? It began as an epic battle, adults and kids a like, but quickly turned into some kind of rave. So weird....

Anyway, just wanted to see if anyone else was there.

This was me.

sorry for the double post..! ;D

That's awesome! I love that pic.

And yes, Canadian Jedi do INDEED do it in the snow.  Just watch some of Madcow's videos for proof!

hey, the logo looks cool, i like it  :P  ill give it a try, ill also ask some of the other guys to give it a try, hehehehe

no, i didnt go to that lightsaber battle in front of the R.O.M.  it did turn into some kind of rave thingy. it was so odd, hehehehe. but to be honest, i wouldnt have gone anyways, i think the crowd is a bit different than what we would have expected. it sounds cool in theory, but i bet once we got there, it would have turned into something totally different.

LOL, rave, hahahahaha  :D
