The February 2018 meeting of the DCSWCC will be held on SUNDAY, Feb. 4th at the Odenton Regional Library in Odenton, MD from 1:00 to 4:30.
Meeting theme: GAME DAY
It’s Big Game day in more than one way for DCSWCC! Bring your favorite Star Wars board games to play, and don’t forget that we will be getting some video game boosters from p4rgaming.com afterwards. Anybody have Star Wars Trivial Pursuit? How many of us can run the board in one turn?
Six Star Wars collecting clubs will celebrate 40 years of Star Wars at Celebration Orlando by giving away sections of an exclusive Lucasfilm approved 6-piece patch set. When assembled, the pieces form a homage to the infamous birthday poster that was released in 1978 to celebrate the original Star Wars film being in theaters for a year. The poster features action figures from both the vintage and modern eras of Star Wars collecting. The clubs participating in this project are the Ohio Star Wars Collectors Club (OSWCC), the DC Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC), the Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society (PSWCS), the Star Wars Grand Florida Alliance (SWGFA), the Empire State Star Wars Collectors Club (ESSWCC) and the Indiana Star Wars Collectors Community (ISCOMM). Art was provided by Bill Cable of PSWCS, and the characters on each patch were selected by the members of the participating groups.
All six patches will be available exclusively at Star Wars Celebration Orlando from April 13-16, 2017 and will be free to attendees. Because quantities are extremely limited, the patches will be limited to one per person. All six clubs will be distributing their patch pieces at their Fan Group booths on the convention floor each day of the show. Please visit their booths at the show for additional information about the clubs and how they will conduct their giveaways.
The Washington DC Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC) is proud to announce its all-new exclusive giveaway for Celebration Orlando – four different bottle caps authorized by Lucasfilm Ltd.
Each day of Celebration, successful participants in a fun and easy game at the club’s booth, #2053, in the main Exhibit Hall will be rewarded with a custom bottle cap. A different cap will be available each day of Celebration – visitors to their booth all four days of Celebration will have a chance to get all four caps. There are only 400 complete sets available, and only at Celebration, so they won’t be around for long.
The club will also be accepting donations for its seventh biannual charity lapel pin at Celebration. This Lucasfilm-approved full-color cloisonné lapel pin features BB-8 projecting a map of the Washington Monument. Each $10 pin is individually numbered and all proceeds benefit Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (www.taps.org), caring for the families of fallen heroes.
DCSWCC is one of the largest and most active Star Wars collecting clubs in America, with over 50 members. The club meets monthly and holds special events throughout the year such as socials, picnics, and “Roadshow” appraisal events. For more information, visit the club website at http://www.dcswcc.club
