My name is Matt Erickson, OSWCC President, and I wanted to thank you personally for stopping by our website. OSWCC is a Star Wars fan club based in Ohio that has nearly 300 members. We collect nearly anything you can imagine that has to do with that galaxy far, far away.
Our members have very diverse interests, and collect anything from toys and comics to statues, props, photographs, prototypes, and much, much more. If there’s been an item with “Star Wars” on it, you can bet someone in our group either collects it, or knows someone else who does.
The Ohio Star Wars Collectors Club is a resource through which those who live in and around Ohio can discuss new items that are arriving, toy & collectible show dates and generally anything else Star Wars related. We have monthly regional meetings based in the South Region (Cincinnati), Central Region (Columbus), and the North Region (Cleveland/Youngstown).
For daily discussion, there is a “members only” forum. The forum and monthly meetings are a great way to see some really rare collectibles, talk “shop” and also help complete your collection through buying, selling and trading. The club makes frequent appearances at local toy and collectible shows and even had group outings to big conventions, like Celebration VI in Orlando, FL.
Once every summer, we host the Summer Social. The Social is a mini-convention that attracts about 100+ people from around the state who get together for a day of fun. Summer Socials include a huge swap meet section, charity auction, door prizes, games, special guests and much more. The location of the Social moves around the state from year to year. In 2015 it will be in the Central Region, near Columbus.
Overall, OSWCC (Oz-Wok) strives to be a place where members can get to know one another through our common locations and interests.
If you are interested in joining The Ohio Star Wars Collectors Club, please send an email to our regional directors at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your full name, location, and region you’d like to be a part of. Membership is restricted to those individuals 13 and up, but families are typically welcome at most meetings and the annual Summer Social. Dues are $12 per year, and go toward the cost of maintaining our website, costs involved with the Summer Social (members get free admission!) as well as our annual membership kit. The kit comes out in the second quarter of the year, and has included various things over the years, including membership cards, membership certificates, annual newsletters, collectible patches, pins or decals/stickers.
Thank you again for your interest. As we celebrate our 17th anniversary in 2014, it’s a great time to get on board! We’ve always got a lot of fun things in the works, and hope you’ll consider joining us.
