2005 KSWCC Fall Festival
by Mike Heicken
October 15, 2005
     What's the best thing about being a Star Wars collector? What's the best experience that you could have being a passionate fan of something like Star Wars?

     Well, the answer is quite simple without really giving it much thought. The coolest thing about being a Star Wars collector is finding some really cool swag! The best experience is to share your passion with many others that have the same passion! Ultimately, that kind of passion can best be experienced at an event like Celebration I, II, or III. The other way that kind of passion can be experienced is through a local collector's club in your city or state! In Kentucky, that club is The Kentucky Star Wars Collector's Club (KSWCC), a club that I am proud to be a member of.

     KSWCC was founded two years ago and started with just a handful of members getting together for a first meeting. Now, just two years later, the club has grown to over eighty members, and it keeps growing! The club has monthly meetings in which we sell and trade new, and vintage, collectibles of all kinds and generally talk shop.... mainly Star Wars, of course.

     Once a year we have a big celebration, commonly known in most collector's clubs of this type as the "summer social." This meeting is generally a bit longer than normal with more fun events planned for all of our families and kids to share. It also is THE one meeting that everyone attends because of all the fantastic prizes that are given away throughout the day!!

     This year however, we tried something a little different. The event was moved to to October and it became our "Fall Festival." It was a great time! The weather was perfect, the food was fantastic, the swap meet was HUGE, and the prizes awarded in the raffle were amazing! From gold .45 scaled lightsabers from Master Replicas, to limited edition premium Gentle Giant Mini-Busts, autographed photos from Official Pix, and prototype action figures and premium protective figure cases, just to name a few! The grand prize awarded was a 1/4 scale Luke Skywalker Statue by Sideshow Toys, donated by Fireside Collectibles!

     To me, the best part about being a Star Wars collector, and fan, is getting together with folks who share that passion, and keeping those lasting friendships and memories. It makes for the ultimate Star Wars Experience!
