    I thought Greencat had asked Zerocool to do the Yoda award.

    I'm sure he won't mind either way, but I think Greencat talked to him on Saturday and asked him to do it, and I thought he said yes.

    Zero said maybe. He has to check to see if he can get the time off. He was fairly certain he could, but he didn't want to make any promises, just in case.

    honestly I wnted to give the award, its the highest award and I kinda felt I shuld... however if its funnnier to have him in costume like we discussed then thats fine. I will make a speech beforehand instead.

    Get a block of styrafoam from home depot. You can shave it down to look like a rock then cut it in half and hollow it out to stuff with confetti. Either that or paper mache

    Like I said, I don't think Zero would care one way or the other. He's a very mellow fellow without a big ego.

    I think that I will discuss the yoda award and its importance and then introduce zero to present it. It would look quite comical to have him come out in a tux ;)

    So how about that?

    I havent heard any response from everyone listed regarding the programming.

    I need a final yes in here that everyone is all set to go for the awards. Otherwise I need to start making adjustments.

    Anyone who is listed as giving away an award needs to have somehting prepared to say (30 sec) a joke would be fine ;)

    Doesnt take but a minute for everyone to just think of a one or two liner they will say beforehand ...

    also I had fluke listed as talking about the padawan program... is he all set with that?

    I am 9 days away from leaving the hosue so I have 9 days to finish the arrangements on my end... so if we can geta final role call on here that would be great.

    I still need a clone trooper... a storm trooper will do fine.
    and a referee shirt.

    Terry I will email your line to you tomoorw. you have two lines... :)

    who else needs access in here so we can get thngs rolling? I will not be online alot this last week since I am busy paingitng still and making um... goodies ;)

    so everyones response is crucial in here.


    thansk again for everyones help.. I cant wait to see everyone!

    Hiya,

    Zero is still a maybe, so I'd count him out of the presentations.

    I'm still on for R2-D2. Do we get to find out who wins before hand or is this very much like the Oscars, where we say, "and the winner is" and open an envelope to find out when everyone else does? :)

    Tina is still on for the Leia award.

    Allie and Bonnie were the ones who were going to talk about the Padawan Program, since they are participants in it. How did Fluke get listed for that???? I don't know if they worked out their saber demo, you'll have to ask BonMothma.

    Fluke is still tech boy for the evening as far as I know, with my friend generously letting me make off with his LCD projector for the weekend.

    Banquet check in is supposed to be from 5:30 to 7:00, with shifts being covered by Dan, Marie, Ginger, Stacie, and me. Which isn't really entertaining planning, is it? :)

    I have no referee shirt. Sorry.

    Do you want me to bring the Yoda mask? Is there anyone out on your end that could do the Yoda in a Tux???? It would be hysterical . . .

    Allie (Jedigirl) and I can talk about the Padawan Program. I don't know if Fluke had volunteered. Whoever does it is OK with me, but Allie will be dressed as master and padawan, so it would look cool. Don't know about the demo yet. We got together last Saturday and it was pretty pathetic, but we're trying again this weekend, I think. With rehearsals and choir duties, week nights are out. I have an awful lot on my plate right now, and I wish we'd thought of this much sooner!

    I also discovered that Terry's costume is, um...a little small. Since Allie's off school right now, I've asked her to work on some alterations.

    The way it was originally suppsoed to work when we tossed this around last month was fluke would present the padawan program which would segway into bonmothmas ceremony with her padawan. A demo of how the program works. In a perfect world thats how I would like to see it played out. LOL :)

    someone talk about what it is, someone demo it.
    So if it doesnt work out for the demo thats fine. I think with bons full plate Fluke should get up there and say something. She is already doing so many things in the program. Lets get someone else to do this. I sent him a PM ages ago but he hasnt gotten back to me whether he is committed to do this or not.

    I honestly dont care who talks about it... LOL

    I want to reassure everyone and just breathe :)

    This is not as formal as everyone thinks and its very off the cuff in some areas. The first one was a blast and people loved it... it will go fine. :)

    The way the program will work is I will announce - "and now presenting the padme award will be blah blah blah".....that person comes up. Meanwhile the screen will show a pic of that category.....music will play. The presenter will have an option to make a joke or two. Otherwise they will read what is scripted... which is exactly whats printed in the NE forums right now under awards description. LOL
    Next they will anounce.... and the nominees are:
    blah
    blha
    blah

    as they announce the names they will appear on the screen.

    and the winner is:

    and they will open the envelope just like the academy awards. they announce the winner and the chapters name will be on the screen. Music will play, they come up to recieve their award the screen will show the award category. Music will play....The chapter will have a chance to speak at that time.

    In another perfect world it would be great like we did last time to have a trooper escort them off ifd they start to run over on time.....
    For now my husband will play the imperial march as a cue to get off the stage LOL

    Im sorry I know how its all going to go and have left everyone in the dartk as to be a suprise however I think we should go over the schdeuling now as to get everyone a better feel for what to expect :)

    Give me a few minutes here at work to clear my desk and I will repost more and the exazct break down when Im done. I just warn everyone u will all be very spoiled LOL

    :)
