    New Development - The people with the Diabetes Assoc. are really excited about having us there! If anyone is able, they would like to have us from 8:00 - 12:00... If not, it's not a huge deal, but that's when I'll be there! I think they're even serving breakfast!

    Have fun!

    The plan right now is to meet up a little before 8:00 at the gate. That is when I plan on getting there. Anyone that doesn't see us can call me for where we are... Most of what we will be doing is walking the park anyway.

    If you don't get there by 8, you don't have to pay. Just tell the people that you're with us... If they give you a problem, call me....

    Think you can fit into that extra Jedi Robe we have that was for Travis? I know it's big so pobably not, but it was worth a shot.

    How did it go.... I went to the 501st site and they have pics but you guys are not in them. I'm just sad that I couldn't make any of the events due to a torn ligament on my left knee. I'm hard down, for a while.

    Hey guys I saw you guys saturday, and I spoke with some stormtroopers. They looked great. I wanted to speak to the jedis but they looked mad for some reason. Hopefully I can save up some money so I can buy my costume soon.

    I wanted to stop by and post here to personally thank First Coast Jedi Knights for the invite!
    Was a really neat troop, and I have heard tons of positive comments about it from those us that drove over from Tallahassee.

    I will say that you face characters with your ostentatious ability to use cameras and cells phones, and your fancy-shmancy peripheral vision sure do have it easy! <grin> Try doing those things with a few pounds of plastic wrapped around your head and some welding visors as peep holes!

    Everything was a bit bunched up at the entrance, so the group I was with moved into the park a bit more. Blame our lack of photographs on the <gasp> Rebel photographer that came with us.

    THANK YOU guys for coming all of that way. You rock.

    When the troop was over I spoke to the doctor that originally invited us and he asked me if we would want to come back next year. They really loved how we were trooping all around and circling the park and they really got a TON of positive feedback on each and every one of us. It was wonderful to be part of such a large team of people working together to make this such a great event. So mark your calendar for around the same time next year if you can as he will be giving me a call then so we can do it again.

    I was the FCJK photographer of the day and I got a bunch of pictures that I haven't had a chance to go through completely, but here are a few from when we encountered you guys. [face_peace]
