  1. I think its great that peeps came to support the town!!! I wonder why s.meyer/hardwick could not be there as well??? I know they are busy but they should have went and some of the other actors should have been there also.. I know that they are filming but they fly the actors all around for like a 2 second movie clip they could have sent them to forks..If i was someone from the movie i would have made it my business to get my butt over to forks!!!Not to sound rude but w/out us twilight would not be what it is 2day twifriends

    • Tinsel Korey, whom I’m sure everyone knows is playing Emily in New Moon, was at the bonfire in La Push. She was very nice, and took time to address the fans and sign autographs.

  2. They couldn’t possibly fly to Forks everytime a fictional character had a birthday….but I get that ‘I’ would like them to…lol At different times in the future maybe they will be able to come. They are in the middle of filming Eclipse right now, and I’m sure most of the smaller characters have film stuff going on too. Forks is happy I’m sure just to have all this awesome attention….thanks again Stephenie!

  3. talk about obsessed…..

  4. The film Tiwlight in Forks: Saga of the real town, will not be released on Oct. 15. On Friday, September 10, and agreement was reached between the makers of the film and Summit Entertainment and Summit bought the rights to the film.

    They aren’t sure at this time how or when they will release it (probably either as an extra on the New Moon DVD, or released on its own near the same time as New Moon DVD)

    That is what we were told at the screening of the previews for the film in Forks. I was a little upset that they wouldn’t allow us to seet he entire film because Summit bought the rights the day before. It was one of the main reasons I went to Forks for Stephenie Meyer Day, and I think it was a great disservice to the people of Forks to not be able to view it in its entirety when so many of them appear in it. Now they will have to purchase it in order to see it.

  5. Lucky people. I wish I could’ve went to Forks and LaPush.

  6. I went to Forks for this and stayed at the Quileute Oceanside Resort for 2 nights (awesome place, I highly recommend it). I want a copy of the group photo that was taken on Sunday. Does anyone know how to get this?

    • Becky – I was looking for the photographers website but I couldn’t find it. I think I overheard them saying it would be available online. I have a scanned copy (from the Saturday group pic) tho, if you’d like me to send it to you.

  8. Becky, email Mike Gurling at the Forks Chamber of Commerce at info@forkswa.com. I believe he should have the photographers information.

  9. I’m hoping I’ll be able to go next year but I will be visiting sometime in the next year and I CAN’T WAIT AND I too think it’s great we support this town !

  10. I am in there somewhere! We had SOOO much fun, and are planning to go back as soon as we can! We also stayed in LaPush at the Oceanside Resort only we stayed 5 days and it was amazing! The people in LaPush are SOOO amazing and the nicest people in the world!
    I know that you can get a copy of the picture from either the Forks Forum or the Forks Chamber of commerce.

  11. Thanks to everyone for the info on how to find the photo. I appreciate it! That was such a fun time. It was great to be with fellow Twilighters and just laugh!
