    Proceeds Donated To: Make-A-Wish



    This year ( 2008 ) is the first annual event and could possibly be a recurring event at both AJ's locations if we get 30+ characters and 10-15 NCS at this years event.
    AJ's has invested a lot of time and money for t-shirts, patches, banners, gift packs, food, accommodations, radio, web advertising and newspaper advertising. They are pulling up all the stops to make this year a massive blowout.

    I've committed to AJ's manager Sam Rice that I could guarantee 30+ characters. I am asking every member of my GLG and MWB to help me make this event one that AJ's will not soon forget. I am counting on the numbers to increase as we get closer to the event date.

    The Event:
    AJ's is an indoor/outdoor family fun center which features certain attractions such as- Go-Karts, Bumper Boats, Mini-Golf, Batting Cages, Arcade Games and much more. Troopers and NCS staff will be actively participating in every facet at the fun center activities by helping AJ's staff pass out tickets, food, operate rides, hand outs, gifts and plushies and to be everywhere and anywhere.

    Changing/Parking:
    Changing areas will be very roomy.
    Parking will be reserved for troopers and family members.

    Admission to ride and attractions will be FREE of charge for troopers and NCS ONLY.

    The Proceeds from this event will be donated to the Make-A-Wish foundation which will be primarily generated by our photo booth. All family members are welcome to come out and enjoy the days event with us.

    If you know Disney and how characters interact with the crowds, then you'll have a good understanding of what we will be doing on this days event.

    Thanks, Pesci

    I'm not from the westside of the state and I won't be there, but I hope y'all have fun.

    I do run the Michigan Star Wars Collectors Club website, myspace page, and blog. I have shared the info and posted in all locations to help y'all out.

    I have been away from this site due to vacations/other commitments(college). I did not know about this weekend. I have to work an over night Fri-sat until 4pm then have a board meeting with my other club that is for Mopar Car owners.
    When are the board meetings with this club? I am a new member and I live in Kalamazoo. I am a serious Anakin/Vader fan, but do not own a costume. I don't know if there is a such a thing as a female dressing up as Vader...is there?? Or maybe Vader's girlfriend? Ok, just kidding.

    Thanks
