    We will be raising money for "The Grand Rapids Griffins Youth Foundation"

    The date for this event has already been locked in. There is a new coordinator on the Griffins' end. His name is Rich Meyers and based on my dialogue with him he wants to really "go big" with the 2009 event. Please save the date and be a part of what will no doubt be the biggest Griffins event yet!

    I will supply updates to this thread as they become available.

    1/22/09 UPDATE

    Hey friends,

    Our status meeting with the Griffins went very well. I will now bring all of you up to speed.

    What the Griffins will do
    -----------------------------
    1. The Griffins are going to have commemorative pucks made. The Griffins Star Wars logo, that Crow designed, will be on one side of the puck. These pucks will sell for $5 apiece, with all the proceeds going to the Griffins Youth Foundation.

    2. The Griffins say they plan to purchase 1,000 of the mini lightsabers, which we initially introduced at the 2008 Muskegon Fury event and were a raging success at '08 Whitecaps. These lightsabers will be sold for $5 apiece, with ALL the proceeds going to the Griffins Youth Foundation. The Whitecaps only gave the charity a portion from each lightsaber purchased - the Griffins giving ALL OF IT!! Think about it, if they sell all 1,000 sabers (which I have no doubt they will) we'll raise close to $4,000 right there. Add the puck sales, t-shirt sales, blaster range, figure card-back, photo booth, concourse & suite walking, we could raise well over $5,000!!!

    3. The Griffins plan to have T-Shirts made with Crow's Griffins Star Wars night logo on the front. The T-Shirts will cost $15 apiece. They will come in five sizes (AS, M, L, XL, 2XL). The 2XL shirts will cost $2 extra ($17). If members of our club wish to pre

    Yes, I know the list is out of date but probably the PDF costume list will be out of date if people cancel.:p

    The PDF is at the GLG boards. I can't copy and paste the thing.
