    Bumping this. I may be able to help out in a non-costumed capacity. Please let me know what time we are looking at. Thanks!

    Updated first post with event details.

    Dan, Jonathan, Nick, and Bobby - the zoo is hoping that we will generate some interest in donations for the polar exhibit. Are you comfortable holding a donation bucket and are comfortable with answering questions about the group if asked?

    Sure, I think I can do that. Do we know what time? I think I have the answers down:

    Zoo Patron: "Where is Darth Vader?"
    Me: "He will be here soon if you donate."

    Haha....

    Seriously though, I'm good with people and also I'm good when I'm put on the spot. :)

    I can definitely do that. Maybe before we go out there you can give us a few pointers on what information you would want us to share about the group...

    We have a great resource (about our group) in our photo books - Mindy or Chris can you bring a copy along?

    Do we have a time yet?

    I don't think we have the photo book, it is most likely in the table bin, but I do have the FAQ file saved and can print a copy to be brought along.

    I am out for this one

    sorry for the late answer. I had tons of technical issues with computer and my passwords lately.
    I'm out for this. Busy weekend ahead.

    Assuming I could borrow Jon's or someone's belt again, I should be in for this as well. Else I could also be table support as well.

    FYI: PER THE ZOO... Weapons are okay HOWEVER they MUST BE IN A HOLSTER when you are by the animals! They will frighten and/or agitate the animals (think tranquilizers!). Lightsabers are okay.

    Very successful invasion of the zoo. Didn't upset too many animals, but many volunteers were flustered.
    We raise $140+ for the bear habitat.

    Great job today! Smiles all around! I am currently uploading the pictures I took with my cell phone to my Flickr Photostream. Some pics are up, but it seems to be slow going. I have approximately 80 photos or so in total, so please be patient with my wifi connection ;-)
