    Sorry this took a whole week to post, but I went and took some recon pictures for Saturday. I wanted to see and I thought other would want to see the actual set up.

    These were taken at 10:30 in the morning. As you can see the side against the buildings are a bit shaded, the other side is not. Stuart said we will be set up on the side against the building and that is really nice to keep us cooler during the day.


    I know we are being feed, but I also wanted you to see other food options to you while there.
    These are in the same center as the Comic Book Store.

    These are across the street, where I think we should park.

    I've got an easel buried somewhere. I got into this kick where I was buying watercolors and brushes and was going to start painting again....never happened. Anyway, I will venture out into the shed and bring it with me.

    There's also a DQ (Dairy Queen), a Chinese Restaurant (China Star), a Taco Bell, a Sizzler, & a Baskin Robbins, all within walking distance. The Pizza Hut is Carry Out/Delivery only.

    The parking lot is very tiny, but we parked in the far end last time. If anyone plans on parking across the street, I would suggest dropping off your gear at the store first.

    I'm tired and didn't want to look through the 6 pages of this thread, so I apologize if this is redundant, but what are the approximate times for this shindig?

    Yes, it's redundant and you're missing all the fun if you don't read it all. We're meeting at 6:30 at IHOP.

    Okay, for those of you not keeping up with the thread (and totally missing my joke about the time)(which may not have been as funny as I'd hoped), here are the times for Saturday.

    8:30 - IHOP - if you want to do breakfast, or

    9:30 - 4 Color Fantasies - if you're not doing breakfast

    I'm doing some of the SW Disneyland ones. I'm also doing some of the Rebel Legion promotional fliers (we need to get more IE members in the RL!!!) and going to try to get some of the RL activity books done, too.

    Sorry, but I can't print in color so I can't do the IEFF fliers.

    Oh dear, the young pup's tired! Let's all be nice to him. (Please note that was said with total sarcasm. I'm just pickin' on ya.)

    Depends on who's driving. It should take me about 30 minutes, but I have a really heavy right foot!
