    First I've hear of it too.

    501st will be there? Who? the Rings?

    Hate to say it but....the site layout looks familiar, even though there are no wingnut references on the site itself.

    Well... he sent an email to the 501st with a request for them... so far no one is volenteering... though I said I probably would... I figure I'll book the day off... Apparently the location is next to a Library, that would bring a few kids probably... it'd be nice to see some of you as well... bubt I realize it is a week day...

    PM sent and apparently its legit (and safe)

    My problem is the weekday thing as well. I have to see if I can grab a few hours off perhaps, but it looks unlikely knowing the basic work schedule that day.

    Hey,

    A few people are talking about attending so I asked them to contact
    you directly and let you know.

    There is also a post on the Fanforce boards for Toronto with a member
    or two commenting.

    I hope it turns out well for you!

    Great about getting armour! It's always nice to get new member's.
    Yes FanExpo this year will be huge for us. If you can get it done
    before then there will be ton's of event's to participate in and
    lot's of 501st exclusive stuff.

    Thanks

    No one mentioned this in London, where there may be one or two interested. I work though, and I can't get the day off.

    I'm still hoping to make an appearance, but really can't say until closer to the event. A bit of flux in my schedule for that day still.

    If it works out though there will be a pilot there at least.

    It was a fun event. Too bad a few more costumed people couldn't be there, but it was fairly well attended and I personally had a great time!

    Also, [link=http://thisweekingeek.net/]This Week in Geek[/link]were there. They interviewed Jay and myself. They also have some photos of the event.

    Had a great conversation about props after the interview as well. Yes, it was geeky.
