    Ok folks im new here but i am a member of the New England Garrison of the 501st. i was wondering what your plans were for the Imax event on nov 1st in boston. How many are going to be attending? How many will be handing out bantha tracks? I have heard that there will be jedi training going on. Have you found out from the theatre if there will be a place reserved for this?

    Are you guys going to have a poll to see how many of your numbers are attending. in costume and in civies? In the jedi training do you plan to have lightsaber duels? if so may i suggest not using plastic lightsabers and using pvc pipes wrapped in heavy foam covered in colored duct tape as a weapon. the plastic as you may know can shatter and if kids are going to be doing this than injuries may ensue causing the theatre to be liable. not to mention the poke factor.

    i dont mean to come in here and preach but i think this possibley will be our finest hour with lucas film and a good show will only mean great things in the future.... ep3.

    i hope to see hundreds.... nay thousands of rebel attire at the event!

    You should PM our City Rep TK7771. He would have the most information here.

    in reading that i hope it didnt seem harsh or out of place. i just want to see these thing be a great event as much as you guys do. i think the two groups should try to work together as much as possible to make this a memborable event for everyone.

    Howdy TK-7297! Glad to see you made it here. Yes we'll be working in conjunction with each other. Roy and I have had several discussions and we're comfortable with whats going on. One thing we'll need to know though is how many are officially going? What time? How many in costumes? REAL costumes...no offense guys...we need to know for A) the theater and B) to let Lucasfilm know what's going on.

    Thanks.

    Right... I've seen it. There's nothing there about your numbers, costumes, etc...

    I've also spoken with Roy. He's a great guy! He didn't know how many were going yet so I was hoping that someone here could get a count started for he and I and save him some work. The theater wants an idea of the numbers.

    By the way... we have a page too.

    *cue X-Files music* :p

    Then should the thread be closed?
    We have our poll thread.

    Lots of friction I see, yes...

    i sincerely apologize if i offended anyone that was not my intention... i was merely inquiring about how you guys were handling this and what your plans were.
    i didnt think that this would stir bad feelings.
