    How to prsent SW as educational.
    What can be used for props.(kids love to touch props)
    How often it could be done.( once a month or 2 or 3 months and so on.)

    Good!
    Now that there are four of us we can get this of the ground.

    We just have to come up with how we want to present this.

    -We could do a good vs evil. How Anakin wanted to make things better so much that he lost track of how much he was hurting and became a tool of evil.

    -We could address that the troopers were not evil. They were just like our soldiers who defend our way of life. To bad that we do not have a trooper because we could get some one from the armforces with out a problem.

    -We could explain the diferance between democracy and empire. I have a Emperor Paplatine costume.

    ahhh, the classic Machiavellian character. How I wish this had come out when I was doing my OAC English project on "The Prince".

    WOW! that was fast. I go an e-mail back usually it cost $200 but they may be able to come up with a deal. I think that they just want to mix us in all over. Also they want some pics of us, so this Sunday we need to take some.



    I think that I could get a tractor & flatbed. If there was enough of us and we went with the origanl 'A New Hope' theme we could pull off our own thing.

    yeah that'd be cool. Just what kind of scene should we make if we do "a new hope" theme? Mos Eisley cantina?

    So would we all need to dress up as ANH characters? We already have Leia, Darth Vader and a stormtrooper...

    Don't forget chewy.
    Also, that's just an idea for the parade.

    Yeah, I know. Not many female roles in ANH. Aunt Beru maybe, someone short(er than me) could dress up as a Jawa. I'd love to see someone dressed as the astronaut from the Mos Eisly cantina. ;)

    why don't we do a jedi vs sith theme? Have a yoda sitting in his chair with a Palpatine in another but back to back. This way everyone has a chance of being their own character without the need to spend more money on making a new costume.

    I'm talking with the Childrens Hospital about going in and sauing hello to some kids.

    I'm also looking into the women's centre.

    I think we need some good guys to go. Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper is cool, but neither of them can talk well with helmets on.
