    Can we get enough people to be in this? We had close to 20 last year and they we let us have up to 50.

    I'l be there with Darth-Sniklefritz.

    Rebellaka if you could post this on Rebel Legion and other FF. I'll post it on 501st.

    Could we have something like a dolly for a stereo and put the banner on the front of it. Then there would be a place for those lightsabers that die.

    There's some interest from members of other cities. What time do we want to meet, and are we going to meet at the Garrison or at the parade site? I'd like to have at least one person parked downtown so we have a vehicle avaiable to get back after the parade.

    I've been saying to meet at the garrison at 2:00 for pizza or something. Then we'll go down at 4:00 together. But yes we need to have some cars parked downtown for after. I was going to do the same as last year and leave my van at the market.

    But hears a catch to that, I was going to use a small wagon that we can atach the banner to the handle and carry the stereo for music. It can hold extra sabers too.
    The wagon will fit in my van with out the back seat but not in the car. So if someone (DarthPapa maybe) could take it in his truck. I can take 4 passangers bothways.

    We will also have to decorate the wagon.

    I've been talking with people and Kay, Bradley and Chris the trekie maybe coming too.

    I've got room in my truck for it and other stuff if we need to bring more, I'll probably park at the costume store again for the start of the parade.

    Hey, cold we as a group make some basic costumes for extras. something like rebel solders, just helmets and vests. Then they can get they're own pants and shirts to match.

    I'm going to go through the costumes that I have because most are reserved already. But StarfleetJedi is coming to the meeting on the 5th to see what we can do for him.

    I'll try to remember to bring my costume bits. I just remembered that I have at least one other robe (Anakin Ep II style) and some other pieces that are cut out but not sewn together yet. I've got both the sewing machine and serger setup right now, so I'm going to be sewing in all my spare time this week. :) I also have 13 meters of brown silk noil (it was on sale a few years ago) to make 2 or 3 Jedi outfits out of.

    Hey darthsolvo. That young guy you know that comes out as Gango, if he needs guns walmart has gango guns for $10 each in the costume area. They've got the sound coming out the end of the barrel.

    Hey all!

    I have a question: will there be a Greedo in the parade? I'm working on a Greedo costume, and I hope to have it done by Halloween. I woould like to wear it in the parade if no one else is coming as Greedo.
