    boba, I have all the info that I have gathered and we will be discussing it at the meeting. The problem is finding the members... and then there is the cost of equipment, shirts, etc... I have been calculating it all up. And its a lot more then 35 bucks a person, unfortunatly. But whatever...

    as for the name? I think something that connects with Mos Alba (tatoonie) would be a better then name... Thats why I thought of Tuskens. And who better to kick some butt on the field then a bunch of ratty Tuskens. Then we can get Lor to dress up and dance on the sidelines to distract the other teams

    Lor says he won't be our mascot... maybe if we name the team The Banthas he would be persuaded to change his mind...

    So far we have:

    Tuskens
    Rogue Squadron
    Jawa Traders
    Wamp Rats

    how about Sand Troopers?

    What about the Rancors..

    "On Dathomir local Force-sensitive witches use rancors as tame mounts. Although Jabba's rancor is clearly non-sapient, at least some of the rancors of Dathomir seem to approach intelligence. These rancors are social creatures, hunting in family-based packs."

    WHAT'S BEEN GOING ON SINCE LAST MONTH

    March Meeting

    First, big props to Ken and Melanie for hosting March's meeting (and April's, for that matter). The library was booked by another group and Ken and Melanie got us use of CMI where there was plenty of space, and no "Shhh! Quiet - Library" to worry about.

    T-shirt orders were placed and Lor collected money. Discussion for the April 1st/2nd toy release was presented by Brian with lists galore. The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk was talked about and is scheduled for the 24th of April. The May Meeting is going to be scheduled at Bob's house for a "Prequel/BBQ - 1 week till RotS Countdown". Free Comic Book Day was discussed and we have been invited to set up again in front of Lobo Comics. And there was a tiny bit of discussion for the ROTS release.

    Toy Release & Trooping

    April 2nd saw the release of merchandise galore for Revenge of the Sith. Two groups split up for the midnight toy release - one at the Los Lunas Walmart, and another at the Eubank/I-40 (Jason's) Walmart. Plenty of toys were to be had, some recruitment was done, but fun was had by all.

    The morning of the 2nd, the Mountain Garrison and Mos Alba helped out Walmart by trooping at the I-40/Coors Walmart in the morning and at Jason's Walmart in the afternoon. There were a lot of excited children (and adults) at both locations. Over $100 was raised in the afternoon for the Children's Miracle Network. The Walmart managers invited us back as often as we like - the next likely event will be close to the movie release.

    -------------------------------------

    Instead, we will be meeting at CMI which is across the street from DoItDinners on Ellison, just west of I-25 down San Antonio. So, you know where the library is? Go west down San Antonio. Go under I-25. Keep going west past Jefferson and it'll be on your left.

    Warehouse. Ken's father-in-law owns that business place.

    Yes, it is not a "public" place, but it's not exactly someone's house either. It's a good space to use, in the interim...

    MINUTES OF THE APRIL MEETING!

    (hey it's not late if it's posted before the May meeting - so get off my case!)

    Anyway,

    We met again at CMI on Ellison. Went around the room to do intros as we had a few new faces in the crowd.

    Discussion included the C3, EP3 release plans (either at Cottonwood or Rio) and Free Comic Book Day plans, as well as the upcoming Breast Cancer Walk on April 24th and the Change Bandit's program (thru 100.3 The Peak)

    New items discussed were the possible formation of a softball team that would be 10 weeks - needed 9 to 10 people including 5 minimum of the female persuasion. There is a thread to get feedback if anyone is interested. Will need to get a team formed and paid for by June. PM ObeyTheFist (Alyson) for more details.

    Also in the sports genre was the possibility of a mud volleyball team for to benefit the Carrie Tingley hospital on June 18th. Entry registration is June 3rd. A thread will be started on this to see if anyone is interested.

    Star Wars Library Day will be June 11th at the Cherry Hills Library. We will have 3 hours to have various activities. Suggestions from Julie & Donna included crafts, oragami, trivia and reading sessions. Any contributions of small prizes ($1-$3) are appreciated, or any suggestions for activiites. A planning meeting is scheduled for June 4. Check out the Library Thread for more details.

    Registration for the Bubonicon table has been completed. Jason offered to donate his signage collection from Walmart to raffle etc. See herefor more details.

    That's it for the major details?.

    Wook out!
