History

The Boba Fett Fan Club started on July 4, 1996 as a very small website for a monthly Boba Fett newsletter called "The Hunter's Journal," reaching 200 subscribers in less than six months -- all in the age of newsgroups and AOL chat rooms. It quickly grew, joining forces with other fan sites and becoming to what it is today.
