    We are going to have a follow-up meeting on Saturday September 17th at my house on "A" mountain. 11am till noon or 1pm.. or later if you want to hang out and discuss ideas or watch a movie or whatever.. Hope we can all make it.. I have received two emails from people that were at Bookman's on Monday.. so perhaps they might show up.. also three other young men at IHOP gave me their email address's interested in information about us as well. We can use the meeting to plan another activity... discuss turnout of the labor day fundraiser.. and also the other items we have been wanting to discuss.. such as our banner/we will have my computer so it will help with ideas.. and gaming.. and anything else we come up with.. especially further discussing Nov 1st.. which I will know within a week if Andy can do anything with us on the dvd release. Hopefully we all can be there.. I shot for this date and time hoping most of us could manage it.

    so many things going on at this meeting.. DLJ will be talking to us about a plan for a lineup at Suncoast on DVD release day..DSJ will be talking to us about an awesome idea he has for Halloween.. that is two back to back activities!!! I am so crazed that I will be out of town on Halloween and the day after.. I sure hope everyone comes out and supports us!! I look forward to being in on the planning for these two events and helping out where needed.. but I think for sure DLJ and DSJ are going to be the point people for these two events. Again let's not forget we are going to talk follow-up of our awesome fundraiser..see a few news clips of it .. and view some photos of it as well, and of course talk about plans for another one in the future.. then hopefully we have time to talk banner for the forum.. we can all punch buttons on my computer and show some ideas to each other and hopefully get somewhere on the banner. If you have any new kewl Star Wars items you just want to show off.. by all means bring them. As always.. any new business can be brought up at the meeting as well. By all means if you want to be sure we get something on the agenda.. post it here between now and saturday as well. Can't wait to see everyone. Still waiting to see if anyone is going to ask me for directions on how to get to my house.. or call me if you need to.

    I know this is not SW related, but y'all wanted to know when I was performing outside of football games. Well, we are having a performance at Flowing Wells High School (don't know address or directions;)) on Saturday October 29. I cannot make the meeting this Saturday (Purdue game and all) so I am posting this here and now so it gets mentioned somewhere. I have no specifics on time because we perform after all the high school bands and FW still has no clue how many are showing up. Just thought I'd mention this since Halloween Weekend is on the agenda.

    On a slightly different topic. This past weekend went great, turnout was amazing and the Red Cross wants to use the band in future campaigns.

    I just "ran" into someone who posted on the TFF boards and invited him to stop in and check out the "new management".

    We are talking about perhaps having this New Year's Eve . . . maybe :p[/blockquote]

    Costumes


    [blockquote]Group Costumes

    We talked about having "stock" costumes for people to use for events. It seems that we were leaning toward Jedi because it is fairly easy to make, fit, wear, etc. Jada will also look into making a generic Leia costume.[/blockquote]


    [blockquote]Costume Resource Thread

    We will be developing a costume resource thread that will have links, advice etc. to resources for making costumes.[/blockquote]

    Don't forget that one of our very own (Tim) is a member of the U of A Band and they play rocking music at the home games and at band reviews! :D

    Hey, thanks for the shout out. Sorry I couldn't make the meeting, game day and all. BTW, BEST GAME EVER!!! We might actually make it to a Bowl Game this year! For the meetings I cannot get to, I will post information about our next performance, probably in the "Wake Up" thread.
