So am I going to be standing "guard" then?
That all depends if we get some Stormtroopers or not. If we do, they'll be standing guard. You may be better suited to handle the outdoor spot or roaming. I really can't tell until we have a solid attendance list and we're closer to the event.
Just to clarify, are the non-armor characters only needed for the first part of the evening before dinner? About 7:30 or so? This way all 3 of us may be available for this and we would have time to leave right after the onstage duel (if they want it) and make the dance recital. More than likely have to miss the black-tie dinner but it looks like we may be having our own eats in another room not black-tie?
At this time, yes. Armored costumers would be needed for the auction and all costumers needed for the hours of 5:30 - 7:30. We will also be served dinner (partly in costume) in our changing area so that we're ready to go back out when needed.
Put me down as tentative. My June schedule is busy in the first half of the month but this might be okay.
This will be a fun & rewarding event and I will fill you in on your duties, No guard detail here...
I'll have my Endor trooper ready for this event!
Now I know I will be out of town. sorry.
Any more info on if they want the duel or not yet Chris? And what time they are planning, if they do? This way I can plan the evening out a bit better with the recital and costumes and such.
OH and my brother found an article/ad for the Gala in the Amherst Bee. He is cutting it out for me, so I can show everyone at the meeting.
I will send an email and ask.
Change me from tentative to a definite. I don't know which costume I'll have yet but I'll be there for sure.
For those that are attending, please update if you are planning on staying to enjoy the evening or going home after the event.
I believe that we are currently planning on attending the party after we get out of costume
I'd probably stay for a bit
I will stay.
Update from last night's meeting:
We will be duelling. Info sent to Lisa via email.
Soundtracks were given to CGD and they will set up sound in respect for the location of the gala (ex. Cantina music at the bar)
Dan & I were able to see some of the artwork they are creating for decorations. we were both very impressed! They are full scales of popular characters and the entire Bith cantina band! The artwork is awesome and the artists were happy to hear our feedback.
We're still looking for Stormtroopers and I am trying to connect with some garrisons for help.
We're close to securing an R2 for the evening too.
Impressed is an understatement. Jaw dropping was my first impression. There are some phenomenal people affiliated with CGD. I can't wait to see how things ultimately turn out.
Is the group going to be able to check out the space at all before the event?
(Mainly thinking about dueling areas but everything else would be helpful too)
I am working on that as we speak. It will be a good idea to get to see the space before we go. Lisa from CGD is willing to met us and walk us through everything.
As it stands right now, I will be attending as 'Obi-Mom' (generic jedi).
For anyone staying to enjoy the evening:
Please remember to be in dress mode. Ladies should wear dresses and gentlemen in shirt/tie (suit if you'd like).
Mindy got a dress last night.
Looks like I'll have to make like NPH and Suit Up!
(after I Flightsuit Up!)
Can't make it, have a surprise family B-day party.
Weekend's already booked solid for requests off at work, so I'll have to wait and see what they schedule me before I can or can't commit
Great! That suprise is ruined!
