53 days to go: Class of 77
I went to my first Star Wars convention in the early 90s. It was an event called Empire Day in Watford (just outside London), where I was living at that time. This was to be the first of many conventions I would attend, and continue to attend, both in the UK and now in the US. In fact, my honeymoon was actually timed so we could attend the Star Wars Celebration Convention in Florida! In recent years Star Wars conventions have become ever larger and ever more popular, they are a far cry from the ones I use to go to in tiny halls. I always take my trustee convention bag with me to keep any autographs I collect safe and to have my "needs list" of merchandise handy.
