Discussion in 'Denver, CO' started by PtrsonsZOO, Nov 8, 2012.
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 darth_hair and 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.
Aye, Thanks 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!!!
