Hugh Pickens writes “The Christian Science Monitor reports that devoted fans at the recent Star Wars Convention V, many dressed as Jedi knights, stormtroopers and the indomitable Princess Leia, sat opposite one another for a series of 3-minute speed dates, in hopes of finding a connection with a fellow Star Wars enthusiast. ‘Over the course of the three events, due to size and time, we turned away about 600 participants,’ says Ryan Glitch. ‘Yesterday, this room was packed. We had to keep shoveling people along.’ Meanwhile in the main exhibition hall, a chapel was set up to allow fans to profess their love and devotion to each other in the form of commitment ceremonies. ‘I’ve been told that we’ve had two commitment ceremonies from people that met at my event,’ says Glitch adding that he saw eight additional couples at the convention made up of people who had attended his speed dating sessions.”
