The "Dagobah" Star Wars Fan Association of Gorzow, the 501st Legion Polish Outpost and the "Mam marzenie" Foundation are proud to announce a Star Wars convention, to be held August 3-5 in Gorzow Wielkopolski, titled "DAGOBAH 2007 - Be like Lord Vader"!

Acting as special guest of the convention is Wojtek, a ten-year-old Star Wars fan from Kostrzyn, who is suffering with cystic fibrosis. His dream is to have his own Darth Vader outfit, meet other Star Wars fans and become a Dagobah 2007 participant. Together with the "Mam marzenie" Foundation, we will make the young boy's dream come true.

Furthermore, it gives us great pleasure to announce that Gerald Home - the British actor who played Tessek and Mon Calamari Officer in "Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi" - has accepted our invitation and will be attending Dagobah 2007, making it his first visit in Poland!

Mr. Home, along with Polish Star Wars fans, have agreed to help make young Wojtek's dream come true. Thank you very much, Gerald!
