Hey you guys!!!
Maria has very kindly promoted me to admin level here so that I can help spread the news about the 25th anniversary of The Goonies, which is in 2010.
For those of you who don’t know, there was a huge 20th anniversary event in 2005 where over 1000 fans from around the world gathered in the Goondocks, aka, Astoria Oregon, to celebrate their mutual love of The Goonies all weekend long. Some travelled from England, Canada, Japan, Spain and even Australia!!! (Crazy, I know) There were movie location tours, cast signings, truffle shuffle contests and even a movie screening too, not to mention entry into the Goonies house, which every hardcore Goonies fan wishes to do.
So, I am writing to let you all know that you can join the following Goonies event group where I would also like to keep you informed about the next anniversary event! Please tell your friends… Goonies never say die and all!!

Last time we had 3 cast members join us – they were Mikey (Sean Astin), Chunk (Jeff Cohen) and Mr Perkins (Curt Hanson)! I’m working again with the Astoria Chamber of Commerce to make the next event bigger and better than the last. Please have a look at all the links in the group and sign up if you’re ready for the adventure of a lifetime!!!!
