I'd love to join you, but I'm much closer to NE than NC. Actually, we may have a few new players tomorrow, so there may a new hope on the horizon…(see what i did there. :P)
It is hard to get players to come out I find. It is encouraging to hear I'm not the only one. Over the 5 Kessel Runs I attended in my area, as well as a couple of other events, I would estimate there were just shy of 50 different players, I've met. There are also a few that I've seen online, that are in the area too, but have never been at the same events. The highest attended SWX event was only 16 players. The majority of players seem to be very new, and it was their first tournament with this game. For whatever reason, it is equally hard to get venues to put on events. This game seems to be a game most players are dabbling with, while their main focus is on other games. If 50 players showed up to any LGS for an SWX event it would be awesome, but they would be hard pressed to accomodate them.
So it's not just us. I have to say, if we had 50 players show up, we would have PLENTY of space. But then, we also serve craft beer on tap, so there's really no excuse as to why they don't show…
Yeah, there isn't even anything on here about whether or not reprinting is happening, but there are places here and there that have a a copy or three.
hothie - I'm so sorry to hear that! If you're near NC, come on out to our store and join in with us some time. :)
Where in NC are you?

Im from eastern michigan what store do you run a league night at and what days?
I put in a request for a Core Set back at the new year, but hadn't seen one. I knew Target had them, but I was holding out to support my FLGS. I ended up caving because I acquired some Target gift cards. That was Saturday. Today I got a call from the FLGS saying that my Core Set arrived. I'm glad I saved a penny, but I'm bashing my head for waiting so long only to cave right before they were back in stock!
But the bottom line is that it looks like predictions have been accurate, and FFG is getting some more Core Sets out to the community with the advent of Wave 2.
Some people play to win. I play because it's one of the few ways to fly an X-wing here on Earth!
