    I'd like everyone to start getting there at 400-430. Since the Drive in will fill up fast once the gates are open I wanted to have our cars parked in front.
    Mr. Palmer said we could open early about 500 to let everyone have a chance at the raffle and face painting.

    Do you think it will fill up by 6 or 7? A few of so work Saturday and won't be able to leave town until 4:30-6:00.

    Also, not to sound cheap, but is Mr. Palmer letting the costumed ones in for free? Or do we need to bring some $$$? I don't want to sound cheap, but money's tight...

    If you can let me know how many people will be leaving Waco late, then we can park an extra car in their spot untill they arrive. As for sounding cheap? Not at all, thats a legitamet question,the people that are costuming will be admitted free, I need to know who would be here so I can give a list to the front for admittance. I just spoke with Michael from HEB here and he is donating products aswell. He also asked if we wanted the H.E.Buddy walking around. Any way thanks alot for all yalls help, and let me know and I'll take care of it.

    Well, Rod and I will be coming late (maybe). My wife gets off work at 6, so the earliest we could leave would be 6:30, and it's about 30-40 mins to Gatesville.

    Something came up, and we may have a babysitter on Sat., so Rod and I could probably make it there early - as long as there's plenty of water! My all black sith costume does't like the Texas heat too well.

    I'll keep you informed as to what's going on. Joe and Elizabeth are coming, but I don't think they'll be late.

    Good question! Sorry I didnt mention it before! For the people suiting up I have made arrangements for a camper to be on-site. Any one suiting up will be able to use it.Also for the costumes that dont require assistance or include a helmet then they can use our house to change and then drive the short distance to the drive in,or wear it here.( although that option might be uncomfortable) I need to verify who is coming for the participation list so I'll know how much food etc to get. Any other questions let me know!!

    Thanks,

    Sunshine

    From Waco:
    Rod and I will be riding together, and possibly John.
    Joe and Elizabeth will be heading down after he gets off work (4?)
    Not sure if Robert is coming, so that puts us at a definate 4, but possible 6. 2 in costume.

    Hey, I'm obviously new to the Star Wars group and would like to know what I can do to reserve a spot. Unfortunately, I work until 5 on Saturday so I wouldn't be able to show up in Gatesville until at least 6. I don't know if it's necessary or even allowed to reserve spots, but any help would be appreciated. Congratulations, this looks like it's going to turn out to be quite the shindig. Email me at Moe8604@aol.com with any help in getting there.

    Hello all. I know most of you with the exception of Woody may not know me. Woody was talking to me about showing up in my TK armor for the Gatesville show. I just found out that I will not be able to make it because my Dad is getting remarried this Saturday at 3 which is totally shocking the heck out of me but hey I gotta be there. If you can let Woody know for me that would be great and please consider me for any future events which I will try to make if I can as I live in Taylor. Thank You.

    Branden, Sorry that you can't make it. Thank you for letting us know. You are welcome to come to our future events. It would be great to have another Stormtrooper!
    Talk to you later.

    From Waco -
    Rod, John, and I will be coming. Rod and I will be in costume, Jedi and Sith, respectively. Joe and Elizabeth are maybes, probably more like no. Amy, from Belton, is also a maybe. She just got back from Europe and is jetlagged. If she does come, she may be dressed as ANH Leia.

    So, 3 definates and 3 maybes from Waco.

    I'm so pleased to see so many of our fellow clubs joining in on the fun! This should turn out to be another great even with lots of fun had by all.

    I'm just sorry that I will not be able to be with you, physically at least, but always in spirit. *S* I will think of all the fun your having while I'm wrapped in mud and seaweed and being massaged. *S*

    HAVE A GREAT TIME!!!!

    Okay, Waco's update...
    Definate: Rod, John, Toby
    Probably: Robert (leaning towards definate)
    Possibly: Nick
    Unsure: Joe, Elizabeth

    Also, we want to help clean up the area when we're done, in case no one else has volunteered.

    Hey Folks, just wanted to chime in to you that the SA contengency prolly won't make it up today, I am experiencing some really bad pains in my leg and walking and standing is not in my best interest, with that, I was most of our people's ride up there so I do apologize for the short notice but I thought it would have subsided by today but I am still in no better condition than I was before . . .

    Take Care

    Bummer. I was really looking forward to finally meeting you! (I'm the one that sent you the 'deflated Fett' picture.)

    Get well, and maybe we can all get together at some other time...

    Had a blast guys! It was really nice getting to see you and help out! Like Joe said, it's all for the kids. Nothing like seeing the look on their faces because they got to talk to Mace and Darth Vader heh! I had a wonderful time and look forward to helping out again soon!

    I think it was a huge success and had alot of fun helping where i could. i think sunshide did a wonderful job organizing the whole thing and we owe her big time for the work she does. Just my 2 cents

    You are absolutely correct on that one! Sunshine definately 'slaved' over this to get it right! The Fan Force, not just Killeen's Fan Force, is a much better place because of her! Now if only I could steal her for our group!

    Sunshine, I want to personally thank you for inviting us out and letting us dress up and help out as we could. I didn't feel like I deserved the brisket, but since I didn't want to offend anyone.... Top notch and 5 stars to you. The force is strong in you. Whenever you need something that I can help with, you just let me know!

    How cool was that ? I love doing these things, but man ! This one was by far the most fun I've had yet!! And raising all that money for the Boy Scouts was awesome. Kinda gives you an extra warm fuzzy feeling about doing things like this. And even Chris looked awesome in the Chewie outfit - nice of him to volunteer to sweat off a few pounds (though he didn't need it nearly as much as me. LOL.)

    Thanks again, Sunshine, for another job well done (and no, WACO, you can't have her - we won't let you. muah hah hah.)

    And of course, special thanks to our compadres in Waco for showing up, hanging out, having fun, getting dressed up and even sticking around to help clean up at 2:00 AM ! You guys rule !!!

    Hope to do this again REAL SOON !!!

    Right on Right on....

    Joe, I saw your pics on your site (googled TK-1731). Awesome. Rod's daughter took pics too Yahoo. Never mind the finger in the way! I need to work on smiling less as a sith, I suppose...

    I'm glad that the event went well. It's good to hear when our neighboring Fanforce chapters have a great event! We here with the SA Fanforce are sorry that we couldn't make it. Real life unfortunately gets in the way sometimes. Awesome job guys!!!
