    And NOW I remember that Qui-Gon Tim told me that the other Tim had joined the Army. You are correct, very bad choice of words. I have edited my original post to be more descriptive.

    Just got a call from Susan Wolfe she says we are on board for Saturday. We need to check in at Door C-Vendor Check-In. When we are not being "celebrities" we can walk around and pester the crowd. The only thing she said was not to take pictures with the folks unless we are in the character area. That is the money maker for them and she would rather we didn't give out freebies.

    The t-shirts will be only for the vendor volunteers, so we don't get them but they are supplying munchies and water.

    Also, if you have not contacted her I believe the list is now set in stone. They are being a little tighter with security this year. If you did not give her your name, you may not be on the list. Give her a call and see if she can still squeeze you in: 901-270-7854

    I think the list of folks she has is:
    Hollie
    Lin
    Kell
    kelly
    Jaccob
    Elliot <maybe>
    Jon
    And someone from Little Rock <she couldn't remember who> :rolleyes:

    There ya have it!! Hope to see ya'll this weekend!!

    I just spoke with SUsan Wolfe and added Grace, so she will be able to attend. Obviously we overlooked a post to contact her, but that has just been remedied.

    Anyone know if on that list it's me (Linden) or Lin? I signed up with my full name so I don't know what she has me down as - I guess I should email her again.

    Helpful advice: Muley will be walking around some outside of the photo area, and when that happens folks want pictures. I usually just say to folks that photo op's are at the "character area in that direction" and point them that way, and tell them when I'll be going back that direction.

    However, you don't want mad folks there, so if they seem like they're getting "huffy," go ahead and do the pic.

    Just wanted to send a thanks to everyone who made it out. I think this year was successful, and the character performers did a great job. There was a fraternity who volunteered to help with the Mr. Lincoln costumes and they were great fun, both in the room and on the floor!! Thanks to them, also---should they happen into this forum.

    I hope everyone had as much fun as I did!

    You guys all looked great. Glad you could make it. Hope you all at least got some kind of ice cream while you were there. That coffee/Kufe' stuff was AWESOME! Got to get some of that.

    Anyone have pics from the event?

    If you need to upload any, you can use my ftp:

    ftp.tk2486.com

    user: 501@tk2486.com
    pass: empire

    If you use internet explorer, just go to ftp://ftp.tk2486.comand a message might pop up. Just click OK and then right click in the white space and go to "Login As" then use the above information. Then you should be able to drag and drop stuff in there. Feel free to use it for anything SMT oriented. I've got plenty of space. To access it on the web its www.tk2486.com/501/ Hope thats not too confusing.

    I'd like to say I'm smart enough to understand all that.

    But, I'm not.
    So, I won't say.

    Sorry to say that I think I am. Problem is that computers sometimes act like they dont like me.

    Muley's rather resourceful, ain't he??

    I wish I could find whoever took the picture of him holding Elmo's head like a prize, too.

    BTW: It's funny in that second picture that John is posed as if saying, "You lookin' at me? You lookin' at ME?! Cause, if you lookin' at me, we gonna have a big prollem!" (That's the best NJ accent I can type in).

    I found out that my cousin was at the Big Scoop. Heh...probably a good thing that I didn't see her.
