    Alrighty its been announced! Its going to be the same route:

    http://www.downtowntucson.org/downtown_parade_of_lights/

    Start Time is 6:00pm

    For those that dont kow what this is, The Tucson Parade of Lights is the yearly tradition where clubs, organizations, and businesses can enter as walkers or with floats, or even just decorated vehicles, and we walk downtown. It has a pretty big draw, and last year we made a splash just be being there with only lightsabers and a banner!!

    This is another great opportunity to show we are a local public club that participates in community events. We had costumed and non-costumed walkers. The Downtown Alliance just wants light, and as much as possible. As walkers last year we had more than anyone else with our numerous sabers and decorated jedi's! So, what do you all think? Want to do it again? I do!

    I wanted to join all of you on this one last year, but Willcox's light parade was the same night. If they fall on different nights this year, I'll try to be there with you. I'll let you know for sure when I find out.

    I'm most likely in.

    Frankie, are you still in touch with Ultra Sabers? This is such a great event that they could promote themselves as well.

    Can't say I'm overly thrilled with the "people are stupid" part of your signature, but hey, it is YOUR SIGNATURE, and how one wishes to address the world is entirely up to the individual.

    Flaming, baiting, derailing a thread with off topic remarks and insulting each other on a public message board isn't going to help the situation. You both have access to each other's Private Message box and probably email, phone numbers, etc.

    Thank you so very much for all of that pertinant information, Honorary TFF Member Hope, amd if I ever see any evidence of some one flaming, baiting, derailing a thread with off topic remarks and insulting each other on the CHARLOTTE public message board, I will be sure to notify you immediately since you are the Chapter Representative of the Charlotte FanForce.

    Here in Tucson, we happen to have our OWN Chapter Rep, a fine fellow that goes by the name of Chris Jackson, which is only appropriate, since that happens to be his name, and if I notice any of the aforementioned actions taking place on the TFF threads, please rest assured that I will immediately inform him, so that he may take care of any issues here.

    Thanking you again for your concern...

    [hl=blue]No worries people, as per request, I believe the issue is resovled via PMs.

    By the way, my signature quote about people being stupid is from my favorite book series from which my name (Zedd) comes from: The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind.

    Mike, in all the confusion over the past 24 hours, you never said whether you have changed your status from "likely to go" to "going for sure". Any change, amigo?

    [hl=blue]Not really, but am 99% sure that I can go. I save the 1% for emergencies, etc. but everyone pretty much always does that, right?[/hl]

    I would recommend meeting at Damians house if he'll allow it, if you would like a central meeting place, otherwise try and park as close to Armory Park as possible. Armory Park is the end point, where the festival will be held
    Here is a parking map. Id get there early. We can change in the senior center again, but be prepared to store your tubs in someones car as it is not a secure building. I will bring the Jeeop with rom for about three tubs if someone wants to throw theirs in with mine.

    For those coming in out of town, remember the freeway is CLOSED, for getting downtown and to take the frontage rd.
