    Sorry not going to make it.

    With the new baby and trying to solidify a job from home, that's just too far.

    Have fun!

    Latest info from the PR officer of the ECG. If you are planning on going to this and I do NOT have you signed up, contact me immediately via PM or email.

    From Dion:
    Hey all,

    Some of you may, or may not know yet... but Lincon Square is
    officially showing Attack of the Clones on November 1st. This leaves
    us in a bit of a dilemma, but if people are willing to help out, it
    will be a great-fun-filled weekend.

    As it stands, the ECG and SWNYC would love to do BOTH locations.
    Both Nyack and Manhattan. So here is what we're planning to do...

    October 31st the ECG will be attending the Halloween parade
    November 1st the ECG will be attending the IMAX premiere in MANHATTAN
    November 2nd the ECG will be attending the IMAX premiere in NYACK.

    That's right boys and girls... three FULL days of trooping and
    PARTYING! Think you can handle it? I guarentee you each day will be
    alot of fun.

    Below you will find a list of 22 troopers... If you are on this list,
    you have contacted me and signed up for the IMAX release on November
    1st. I ***NEED**** you to contact me RIGHT away and tell me if you
    can do both events. If not, I need to know which events you can do.
    Attendance is EQUALLY IMPORTANT in both theaters. From what I'm
    hearing there will be press coverage at BOTH. We need to have a good
    showing for Lucasfilm! To the out of town guys, I completely
    understand if you can't do both days... that was more directed to the
    guys who call New York their home. :)

    I will be setting up a NEW Database in the database section of the
    ECG message board. This new database will refelect who can do what
    days. If you cannot access the ECG message board, then PLEASE email
    me right away at and give me the following
    information: Name, ID#, Costume, Garrison, Can you attend on
    Novemeber 1st in Manhattan, Can you attend November 2nd in Nyack, and
    your email address.

    Here is the list of names I have so far (if you are interested in
    coming and have not signed up yet, PLEASE CONTACT ME!):

    Manhatten??? *L* Okay...

    Our plans are to meet Ed (Reaper) in New Jersey and drive in from there... this adds about an hour to the trip, so because of babysitter stuff it's getting critical that I have a time when we're meeting so I know when we have to leave and when I have to drop the kids off etc....

    Now that it's in Manhatten, is it still going to be start getting dressed at 4:00?

    What time do the festivities start, just in case we end up running late?

    Thanks! Sorry for so many questions, I know you probably don't even know yet... *L* But just thought I'd ask anyway. :)

    You're right! We don't know what time anything starts, when we are supposed to be there - Dion is updating me on a daily basis. As soon as I get information it gets posted here. SW NYC and the ECG are still trying to work out some details with the theater.

    However, maybe what you should do is meet us at the Best Western Hotel in Manhattan:
    17 West 32nd Street
    New York, New York 10001
    212-736-1600 Fax: 212-563-4007

    They have parking there ($25 per 24 hours - don't know what the hourly would be). That way you can park and then take the train over to the theater with a bunch of people. There will also be enough rooms for you to get changed, leave your belongings, etc for the evening.

    I will also have my mobile with me. We will already be in Manhattan b/c of the parade the night before. I will make sure all KofP Chapter members have that number so we can stay in communication.

    Stay tuned to this thread!

    Meeting you and changing at the hotel sounds like the best plan!

    I'll be in touch with you once I can work things out with my babysitter and our ride to Manhatten. :)

    This just in...

    AOTC IMAX on Nov 1 at NYACK, NY.

    Activities will begin at 2pm and continue through the evening. I am going to buy tix for all of the KOFP folks for the first evening showing at 7pm - you can pay me back later. I need confirmation ASAP of WHO is going on Friday, Nov 1. So far I have:

    Julia and Kevin
    Tim Miller
    Matt Krotzer

    Anyone else? Please let me know if you DO NOT want a ticket.

    We are NOT being given free tix for the showing. Dion has informed me there is a chance we will be comped tix for a later showing, but I for one want to see it while I'm up there and don't want to take that chance.

    Activities will also happen on Nov 2 starting at noon and finishing at 7pm. I won't be attending those events, but whoever wants to stick around, feel free...

    Ok, so Manhattan confirmed AOTC IMAX five minutes ago. But I had to make an executive decision and I hope everyone is ok with it. We just couldn't wait any longer to make final arrangements for the events next week esp because we are all traveling such a great distance. Officially KofP chapter will be in Nyack, NY on Nov 1. However, if you *really* want to go to the Manhattan theater on Nov 1, you need to let me know ASAP so I can inform the SWNYC and ECG organizers. At this point in time all main activities will be at Nyack and 'reserve' troopers (about 4) will go to Manhattan.

    Also, I am getting tix for the 7pm show on Nov 1 for Julia, Kev, Ed, myself, Arturo, Natasha, and Rob....

    Matt and Tim, please confirm with me that you ARE definitely going and that you want a ticket for the 7pm show. PM me or email me. Thanks. :)

    I will not need any tickets for Nyack.

    My girlfriend will be coming into New York
    on friday so I have to be in Manhatten.


    I am going to try to catch the Manhatten showing of AOTC.

    We had an awesome time! The theater treated us wonderfully with free drinks and munchies. They even gave us a room to change and leave our belongings in. Plus the IMAX was IN the mall so we didn't have to be outside. It was fun seeing people's reactions...and we got to see the 7pm screening and I must say it rocks in IMAX.
