I'm in Kitchener, ON.

Are you talking like L.A.I.R.E. in the movie 'Role Models', or like a 'Jedi Gym'?

Either way sounds like wicked fun, but I'm no expert duelist and I work like 75% of my life. If it's along the lines of role playing(L.A.I.R.E.), there would have to be enough people interested to make it fun. I know some people who would be down, but we'd have to advertise the event(s) to fill it up with heads. If it's serious 'want to learn' stuff you're after, then a space is needed to do so, and learning material needs to be attained.

I don't know if many Ontarians know just how fun this hobby is, but I'm glad it's getting around. Just a few months ago, I attended a 'Lightsaber Battle' in front of the ROM(Royal Ontario Museum). Turned out to be pretty fun with lots of people, but there were lots of parents with their kids and eventually it turned into some freaky rave...(what?). It got weird.

Anyway, good to meet you man. Maybe our blades will clash.....   or slash side by side... ;)

I am personally interested to see how many others like me are in the Windsor, Ontario region that would like to do what Terias mentioned,  getting together, geeking out, building, dueling etc.  We need a presence in this area.  The Star Wars geeks in Canada can't ALL be that far from here.  (Yes, I already know about the London groups, I'm talking something that doesn't take 2 hours to get to.)

I live in Lapeer, MI and it's 1 1/2 hours away from my house if I'm not mistaken. Be nice to see some peeps and of course show off some sabers. I have 2 vv stunts to play with as well.

I'm a bit closer to Windsor than djobitwan7 (who is a friend and have met a handful of times)...

I'm curious who else is close by... would be fun to have a dueling/sparring session (DRL has prevented djobitwan7 and I from doing that yet... hey... we do have lives outside of sabers  ;D)

But it doesn't hurt to line up the crew... 8)

Quite frankly, I've always wanted to find enough people to eventually start a chapter for the Rebel Legion.

Actually I'm a part of the Rebel Legion:
http://greatlakesbase.com/

It covers the gambit of RL members from the midwest... I believe that for Windsor, your base would be the Rebel Legion's Canada base:
http://mtfbwy.ca/

The chapter's are not so easy to form... especially with established bases already in place...

I know that it is hard with groups two hours away... but if you wanted an RL group to join... that is your only current option.

BUT if you just wanted to meet up with other like minded people to duel and spar and such... that would be possible. :)
