DCSWCC To Celebrate 6th Fall Social

Posted By Mike on October 21, 2009



See the release below:

The Washington DC Metro Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC) will hold its 6th annual Fall Social on Saturday, September 26th, 2008 in Poolesville,MD.

The Fairbanks Farm will again be the site of the club's annual Anniversary celebration, which will featured the usual hayrides, children's pinata, pool noodle lightsaber battles, Sarlacc Swap gift exchange, food, fun, and fellowship. We're not sure we can ever top last year's Family Feud game -complete with sound effects and theme music - but we have another retro gameshow in store that you won't want to miss. Thanks to our generous sponsors, featured on our website, the members-only raffle and goodie bags are top-notch as usual.

If you're in the Washington DC area this Saturday afternoon, stop by and join in the fun! Check out our website www.dcswcc.org and email kingpin@dcswcc.org for more information.

DCSWCC is one of the largest and most active collecting clubs in America, with over 50 members. The club meets monthly and holds special events such as socials and "Roadshow" appraisal events throughout the year. For more information, visit the club's website at http://www.dcswcc.org.




UPDATE: And as a follow up to the release above...

RAIN NO DAMPER ON DCSWCC SOCIAL


The DC Metro Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC) held their 6th Annual Summer/Fall Social on Saturday, September 26th in Poolesville, MD. Members traveled from Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and all around Maryland to take part in this event. Upon their arrival, members received a goodie bag filled with random Star Wars paraphernalia, including an "I Love Star Wars" car magnet from the club president, Martin Thurn; the yearly patch (this time featuring a toasted Greedo and the slogan "DCSWCC: Where Han always shoots first"); a Boba Fett pin and patch donated by the group's founder and original president Mike Kurtz; the next DCSWCC trading card; and much more!

Even though the sun was not shining as brightly as usual, members and their families enjoyed a cook-out of delicious hamburgers and hot dogs, grilled up by our master chef Jay Jorgensen, along with a smorgasbord of other delicious foods, including a Jabba the Hutt cake baked and decorated by Deb Kittle! Aric Darroe provided the gathering with a soundtrack as he DJ'd songs from every decade and every galaxy. Luckily, the rain didn't start to fall until after everyone had filled up on dessert! As the drizzle turned into a downpour, the DCSWCC crowded onto the front porch of the farmhouse (it's a good thing we are all such close friends) and took part in a game of "The Price Is Right" for the Star Wars collector, put together by the club's own Jason Stewart. Members competed in a variety of pricing games using high-end and rare Star Wars collectibles from the vintage and modern eras.

After that, everyone pulled out their raffle tickets and listened intently as President Martin pulled raffle numbers from a Darth Vader-head basket.The raffle this year had some very unique items, such as an autographed photo of Shannon McRandle, known to fans as Mara Jade, and favorite of the club, as well as a variety of items donated by Action Figure Authority, Beyond Comics, Brian's Toys, CineMasterpieces, FBTB.net, GalacticBinder.com, GalacticHunter.com, KSWCC, Lucasfilm, LukeJedi.info, OfficialPix, Oscar'sCases, OSWCC, Past Generation Toys, RebelScum.com, and SWDLR Gaming, and club members Denise K., Jonathan McElwain, Tim Walsh, Mike Kurtz, and Jason Stewart. Club photographer Frank Klukosky snapped photos of each member accepting their prize.

The children were kept busy with the traditional hay rides around the farm, chauffeured by Uncle Fairbanks on the mini-tractor. The kids also got a chance to take a whack at this year's Star Wars-themed TIE fighter pinata, constructed by Jonathan McElwain. Club members Frank Klukosky and Tim Walshwere kind enough to donate an assortment of Star Wars Pez and Happy Meal toys, so both the parents and children went home with some freebies. Even though it was the first DCSWCC social without sunny weather, the rain did not dampen anyone's spirits, and all who attended went home happy. To see their smiling faces in the group photo and find out more about the club, visit http://www.DCSWCC.org.
