This weekend is last weekend before the parade are we going to do touch ups on the float?
Jeff and I looked at it on Sunday. It is in good shape. The tarp held up well. He is going to uncover it after the (theoretically) last snow/rain storm before the parade, just to make sure.
The museum is trying to get a banner for May the Fourth for us to put on the truck. And it will be a more "generic" banner for us to use multiple times/years.
If we're promoting us without promoting another commercial entity, we're fine. The problem with the Pinewood Derby is that it's not actually an established event yet.
(Sorry, I just saw this one, or I would have responded sooner.
So with me being new and everything, is there anything I can do aside from going down there and supporting you all? Am I able to walk with the parade? If not, where can I find you guys before/during the parade to meet everyone? And if so, what is the information/clothing etiquette, etc?
We always need members of the t-shirted support crew! Grab your favorite Star Wars t-shirt and follow the instructions found in the FB event for up to the minute info.
It's looking less and less likely that I wil be physically able to participate in the parade.
Do you have a link to the FB Event?
Here it is: https://www.facebook.com/events/399775750116487/
It's not working... Is it only available for a specific FB group?
Ask this guy for an invite https://www.facebook.com/obey.wann.9
Red 5, standing by. Er... Obey Wann, standing by.
Oh kind sir.. If you're not too busy shooting torpedoes down the Death Star's throat, could I get an event invite?
I love it when a plan comes together
I will be unable to participate this year.
We'll miss you!!!
See you all there tomorrow morning!
Sad! We'll miss you!
I'm officially out. Have fun! I'll see if I get Telemundo....
Smartphones are neato.
Tomorrow! Hope to see everybody out there who can make it. The parade is always such a good time and the happy looks on the kids and drunk people's faces totally makes it worth it.
Official Parade Info
The parade went great! We had quite a few participants from the RMFF, RL, 501st and the Sith folks. We were right near the front so we started walking at about 10:15 and finished by about 11:45. The weather was cool, but not unbearable. The crowds were loud and appreciative. No drunks and no throwing of candy...all was a tremendous success and we were one of the best floats/entries, I'm sure!
Thanks to all who came out and to
@Obey Wann and
@PtrsonsZOO for organizing and making out entry happen. Thanks to
@SITH__CHICK for housing and taking care of the float.
Let's be crazy and do a new float for next year, yes? Endor Village would be very cool, but you know what would be even better? Life size Death Star...nuff said.
@Obey Wann and
@PtrsonsZOO Had a great time and great to meet some of the RMFF and 501st.
Thanks everyone for making this a great parade!!!
Doc, you made a world of difference. Your Gamorrean Guard rocked, and the rest of the aliens were fantastic! Thanks for joining us!!!
