    So the 30th anniversary is coming up May 24 weekend.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to what we are going to do? It would be great to do something were we can dress in cotume.

    If we plan it now we could advertise and get more people to come out and join our chapter.

    The cheapest end easiest would be to have a picnic party, maybe at springbank.

    yeah that sounds like fun. I know that I can advertise at school and area. Another place we could have it would be up in victoria park, but then again it may become difficult for some people to get downtown because of traffic. Screw it lets go for Springbank park. I'll bring the lightsabers and some treats.

    Yes Victoria has concerts that weekend. If you get any unwanted people it's had to stand up in defence if your wearing a cotume. Also that's not the image we want.

    yeah but he shuts up when told to by me. Also I found a bunch of star wars fans that work at the convent garden market. If you go over to this truffle place there is a young guy there and he's interested in going to the event and this months meeting.

    the other problem with lots of new people is that I don't like meeting new people

    Don't forget Halton (if there's anyone still there, I haven't been there in a while) and Niagara. They used to come to things here once in a while.

    Sorry, I've been out of touch for the last few weeks... holidays and annoying roommates are to blame. I haven't been home much.

    alright guys I just sent Jan Duursema (famous star wars comic artist) an email to see if she has anything she would like to donate to the event. Now has anyone been able to find out what charity we are doing?

    Ok, this has been fun. I have not been able to fine any way of reserving a location though the net. So tomorrow it's time to start pounding on some doors.


    Also: We need cash so if everyone can pm. me and let me know what they could donate for a bugget. It would be nice to get this thing going.

    Here's an up date, it's a bad news good news bad news good news thing.


    Bad news: Springbank park does not make reservations until after Victoria day.

    Good news: We are aloud to have it there before that for free.

    Bad news: It's first come, first serve. So someone will have to be there at sun up.

    Good news: we can bring a gas BBQ.

    Bad news: we have to be done and cleaned up by dusk.

    Good news: If we think there will be enough people the large round pavilion is about 35-40ft across in picnic area 'F'. So if it does rain a little we have shelter.

    Rules that have to be followed: No loud speakers or stereo's No alcohal.
    if we want to get into fund raising we have to deal with the city and get the proper permits. I will look into that at a later time.

    That leaves us with th isue of food and prizes for event such as costume contests.
    I am suggesting to have 4 age groups for a cotume contest:Children up to 12yrs.
    :13 to 18yrs.
    :19 to 30yrs.
    :30+ (that's pre-SW)
    So we need prizes.
    I'll start things off with a "General Grievous, Revenge of the Sith Energy Beam Blaster".
    That leave 3 more, they can be as simple as a $7 lightsaber from wall mart or an action figure.

    Ok so as Brandons idea we are going to have a saber tournament.


    If we become a registed not for profit group, we could ask local business. However that will not be an option untill next time. So we have to come up with it our selves.


    So if anyone wants to start posting in other chapters here's what you can say:
    The event will be open from 9:00 am. to dusk on Friday May 18th in Springbank Park. More info on events that will be happening there will be released at a later date.



    ps. to keep track of everything I will make changes to this posting of what we have and are doing.
