As I understand it, both Australasia and Oceania include Aus and NZ, obviously, but Oceania is a wider/bigger region that includes a number of other islands and countries. Australasia is a subset of Oceania.

ok, cool. Thanks for the clarification Mate Very Happy

It does make me think that Australasia probably is more appropriate however Razz

Im guessing they may be going via continent as opposed to region

The list we have is - Nth America, Central America, South America, Europe, Asia/Pacific, Australia & the Outer Rim

Against Continents - Africa, Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Antarctica, & Australia. As we're not that big in Africa or Antartica it kind of matches

That being said, Australasia works only if we are not impinging on any others in Asia/Pacific group that are happy where they are, Oceania works for me also but if people have an issue with im happy with first suggestion.

And I agree Kit is a dude Smile

I'm also a big fan of Oceania, as I think Australasia will confuse the global community (Thinking it is Australia & Asia)

Oceania is a known and used term (outside of FanForce) for the area - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oceania

Oceania is definitely growing on me... (Like a fungus)

I agree with Ashley, I've ALWAYS thought that Australasia refers to Australia and Asia, and I still have no idea what FanForce is.

Neimhaille's reference referred to Oceania being used as a term as early as 1884... It has gravitas!

Fan Force:

http://boards.theforce.net/

A lot of us had our history there before we came to the RL. It is based more on social events, no costume standards & no charity work in their working guidelines. So it's a different sort of SW club.

I don't mind Asia/Pacific either

How many active members do you have over there?

We've currently got 11 costumers on our books, but one base member is heading back to the US in a few months.



No wonder I couldn't find the outpost in the links... And Yep! That would be me; the guy heading back to the States.

Is there such thing as dual memberships? These guys gave me a home and I do plan to come back and visit too...

Well, with 11 members, you only need one more to go for a full base, under the charter revision. I've managed to find or make several new costumes/ers in the last couple of months, surely one member is not that hard an obstacle to overcome?

Do you have 501st over there, are there any clones/Tusken/jawas etc that could go for dual membership?

I don't see why Sady couldn't be a permanent honorary kiwi, especially if he's going to be a pilot as well. Pilots are always off base, right? Smile
