    I've thrown together something, similar to the Zahn promotional flyer, that we can start passing around to people when we ask them for donations...or even IF they'd be willing to post it for others to see.

    I'll bring a draft of it to Zahn for ya'll to check out.

    Something interesting on the Bowl For kids Sake website:

    Michael Mayse has a team called "Millennium Falcon's" (and he's already raised $275)

    Rebel Strike Team...assemble in the hanger bay!
    I'll have flyers ready by Feb 21 meeting (sooner if we go bowling) We need to be hitting everywhere and anyone we know. And the rest of you guys...if you can (or know people who would) we're gonna need all the help we can get!

    Maybe we can arrange to play against this guy April 18th?

    Flyers are done, and I have them split up among the 5 of us...I'll have them at the meeting 2/21.

    We need to get together sometime soon for practice. I talked with Will and Eric about this...but even if you can get in a game or two on your own (or with a small group of us) the more practice the better.

    Speaking of which, I'm trying to get us some publicity (Plain Dealer) and if she's interested...we should practice someplace (Freeway Lanes?) where she can meet us. I'd like to give her a good story to write about, including a chance to talk with as many of us as possible.

    I talked with a guy over at Freeway Lanes...explained our situation, gave him some flyers, he's supposed to call me Friday to discuss what/if any can be done for us ((cross fingers))

    Minnesota Force...thanks guys! (I'm on the board)

    An interesting thing happened today, I was out at Brookgate Lanes...and while they can't help us (directly) the people there are willing to pass out our flyers to members of their bowling leagues.

    One lady in particular said she has an uncle, who knows about us and jedi knights of Columbus! If you're reading this...HELLO, and please don't hesitate to post here and get to know us!

    My Ballys has agreed to keep some flyers on display (hope I can get someone there to doante) and I have a call to make over at Yorktown Lanes! So keep thinking of places to go and talk with someone about Rebel Strike Team.

    Ok...with other various mail (in well the mail), Geoff and I got in the mail the confermation letter from Bowl for Kids Sake. Which means we have the OFFICIAL letter to give people (so if they ask for official documents we got them!)

    And Yorktown can't help us but will but flyers out! :D

    I'm waiting for a response to that question Eric.

    At the February meeting, we got permission to move the monthly meeting from the third Saturday of the month (4/17) to Sunday 4/18!

    Kim has agreed to lead the costuming group...since most of us with costumes are bowling! She'll be in charge of any photo ops with kids (I'll be around to help with any media that shows up). So you fellas from Ohio Garrison...mind taking orders from the "Emperor's Hand"? ;)

    Any ideas on where we should go afterwards? Having the meeting following the event would serve as a good "after-party" where everyone can socialize. We had such a good time at Zahn...seems like the perfect opportunity to do it again!

    EDIT: News regarding the cash donations question...from Jen @ BBBS:

    Hello Geoff-
    Good question. Members of your team can send cash to our office. There is a form on each person's website that one can print off for mail-in donations. If member don't use that form, make sure it is noted who the donation is from and for who the pledge is to be credited to. Our address is listed below. Once received, our office will update your totals for you.

    Geoff,
    I was wondering, besides Beltayn, do we have any other costumers coming?

    do we have any other costumers coming?
    I wanted to talk with the guys from RoP...who aren't bowling...to see if they'd be able to help us. And I was hoping Brian would break in his new robe (I'd loan him my obi-wan tunic) for another jedi!

    Plus "Coyote" from Ohio Garrison MAY have his armor ready...we've discussed this on OG boards
