Ok. This is the paper work I need to get together. It looks like fan booths are only 10x10 so lets plan on this size. Chewie and I need to get this stuff together by the end of the year. We won't know if we are accepted until the end of January.

Guidelines for Fan Club Participation at Celebration IV

There will be a limited number of free fan club table spaces available at Celebration IV for unofficial, local and regional fan clubs and similar fan organizations. These tables will allow the clubs to promote their organizations to other Star Wars fans, and to act as a central location for club activities at Celebration.

Clubs that qualify will be supplied with an 8’ table and two chairs, and a space approximately 10’ wide by 10’ deep. Clubs will be asked to make specific arrangements with the facility or the official decorator for additional utilities or other equipment at the prevailing rate. The fan group table location is yet to be determined, but likely will be in one of the large exhibit halls in combination with other fan-sponsored displays and actIVities, in an area called the Fan Fair Exhibit Hall.

Fan group tables must be staffed by at least one person who represents the club at all times during the hours that the hall is open. The tentative hours for the Fan Fair Exhibit Hall during Celebration IV are:
Thursday, May 24 12:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Friday, May 25 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM
Saturday, May 26 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM
Sunday, May 27 10:00 AM – 7:00 PM
Monday, May 28 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

No club will be allowed to sell merchandise or services at their table. Clubs are welcome, however, to purchase booths in the Celebration Exhibit Hall if they choose to sell merchandise. To reserve a booth in the Exhibit Hall contact Megan Culver at

Fan clubs wishing to participate with a Star Wars Celebration IV fan club table must turn in an application packet by December 31, 2006 that includes:

Names and contact information of club leaders, from two to four individuals.
Fan Club resume (see resume requirements below)
Written plan and description of what will be offered at the Celebration IV fan club table or area
Samples of all literature and items that will be given away, for approval
Images of all graphics that will be used in the booth, for approval
Fan club resumes must include:

Name of club and full contact information. There must be at least one telephone number in addition to email or Web addresses.
Description of club focus and priorities
Brief outline of previous projects and activities
List of current projects and activities
Description of club structure
Approximate membership number
At least one personal or business reference for each individual listed as a club leader
What we look for when considering fan club applications:

Involvement and positive influence in the Star Wars fan community
Quality of involvement per fan club member, not simply quantity of members
Originality of club purpose
Exhibiting ideas and plans – that you will add to the Celebration IV experience for your fellow fans in some way.
Mail application packets to:
Mary Franklin
PO Box 29901
San Francisco, CA 94129
Packets must be received by December 31, 2006 for consideration. Clubs will be notified by January 31, 2007 on whether or not their application was accepted.

*Fan groups with ideas for fan-sponsored activities and programming, who are willing to volunteer their time to share with other fans, can submit their ideas, too! Please send a brief initial proposal (limit 500 words) to, or mail it to Mary Franklin; Lucasfilm Ltd., PO Box 29901, San Francisco, CA 94129. Include your email address and contact information. Briefly summarize what you would do, time, budget, and materials needed, number of people involved, and how the audience could participate, if at all. Initial proposals will be considered for final proposals, and do not guarantee scheduling during Celebration IV.

Looks like good news but there is still a LOT of work to do.

A couple things come to mind.

First, I think we need to do a very serious inventory of those who want to do this. As soon as we send in our Application Packet we need to be SURE that we can pull this off!!!

Second, given the size constraint, we need to evaluate the overall size/scope of the diorama. 10x10 is not very big once you consider the space people will need to walk around and look through the booth.

I'm sure there will be other things that come to mind but these were my first two thoughts.

I think we need to schedule a special chat at a time when we know that at least every leader will be avilable. I don't think its going to be that hard to make this resume up but we do need to figure out what we can and can't include in the diorama. The resume should have the same content as the web site is going to have.

could we have multiple levels?

Also, I can make myself available Tuesday nights, 5:15-9pm EST for sure...

i was going to suggest the multi leveled idea as well, good call pendragon, or would it be possible to line the 3 sides of the booth with 2 or 3 foot wide tables so it would be like you are standing in the middle of the scene when you walk into the booth? just an idea! :)

So we are talking about a city in a very high canyon?
User avatar
By jedistyle
yea i guess the walls would be a very high canyon. mabey that would fit into the spice minning backstory, a small city set into a deep canyon where the spice is abundant. what ever would work to make more room.... :)

That'd be kinda cool - like a strip-mine / mining town?

Kind of wild west-type theme to it. This still fits into the story.

I'm a little worried about multi levels personally... I think that might work for a building or something like and underground cave, but for the overall landscape I think we're going to have to stick with one main level. Though if we could do multi levels I'd be all for it, I just don't think it's feasible. :(
