    Hey guys!

    I received an email that was also apparently sent to John about the show this coming year. Shane Turgeon wants to know if our two groups would like to share a table - at no cost in thanks for our two groups support of his show every year.

    Anyone interested? Anyone with any ideas for a kickbutt table?

    That's really cool of him, I think it's a great idea.
    Shanna should bring the Lego, it would make a fantastic display item. With a big sign, Display Only, Touch On Pain Of Death! though. :p
    Redoing the picture board is on my to-do list, I have to get more recent shots printed up and cull some as well.

    We actually talked about this briefly at the meeting at the beginning of December, and everybody seemed to like the idea.

    Jay and I have those 3 ft by 6 ft banners of Kenobi and Vader we could bring. They are very visually impressive and would stand out tremendously.

    It's a good way to show Bryan Arendts work who will be doiing a series of banners for SOTR.

    since we're already meeting friday to discuss forcefest it might be a good time to also discuss the toy and comic show, what we want to have set up on the table etc. we also need to look at getting those new flyers and business cards done before then.

    J. reminded me, anyone with pictures to contribute to the photo board, can you get them to me, in any format please? I'd rather not have to worry about origionals so if you're contributing prints, make sure it's a copy. Also email them to me, geekgirl76@shaw.ca

    Shanna, If we are really nice and help you rebuild it, can we use the star destroyer or not?

    I think we might have to chip in and get a second table, there's lots were all wanting to bring, unleashed, r2 maybe sabers and those banners but I keep forgetting it's one table and there's between us and the 501's gonna be alot lol maybe we should all chip in and get a second table so were not all crouched together?

    You know.....us 501st folks were thinking of getting a table of our own just for that reason. With the amount of stuff that you guys are thinking of....and then the stuff we are thinking of....there just might not be room! Perhaps Shane would be in to giving us each a table at half the cost instead of one table at no cost. Might just make things a little easier.....

    So I talked to Shane yesterday and he's going to put us side by side on the wall to your left...I think it was left....when you come in the door. Tables 68 and 69 I believe they are. Everyone okay with paying for half a table? Each group would pay $25.00 instead of the full $50.00. Let me know if that works.

    Shane is hoping that the two groups can come up with some kick butt tables and I said that you guys already had some fabulous ideas!

    He's opened up the room he normally gives us for changin' in as a second dealer hall but he has arranged for a smaller meeting room for us to change and store gear in. If it's REALLY small we might have to change in shifts because of all of our bulky containers, but we'll figure it out.

    Shane mentioned that there isn't a whole lot of room behind these tables. I'm pretty sure I remember what ones he was talking about from last year and I think there was enough room to get chairs behind there so we should be fine.

    Last year we made an attempt to all get together after the show but because we started planning late etc. and people had to drive back to Calgary only some of us went. How does everyone feel about meeting before hand for breakfast?

    Sure. I'd be up for breakfast. :)

    So it's $25 per table, or $50?
