    Ok I thought I would start this thread so we can post who will be there and the like.

    WHAT: Rivertown entertainment is putting on a Movie Memorabilia and Comic book show.

    WHEN: July 9th and August 13th From 11:00am til 5:00pm

    WHERE: At the Gandville Banquet and Convention Center
    2900 Wilson Ave. Grandville MI.

    Ok Ive went to the show yesterday. This is not a huge show but it has potential to become something big.

    I talked to Mark who is the man in charge he's really excited about having us. So here are the the things that you'll want to know::

    We have a good size area to change in and store totes. If we can get enough troopers for this I would like to have a couple of them outside to generate interest, if we have enough we will rotate as often as needed. we will have the 2 tables and be able to do the photo booth for donations. Jaster is going to send me a copy of his dvd that he made for MCCC so we can have this playing at the table. So we just have to get some other things to put on the tables, Jon is going to lend me the squad photo binder so we will have that on the table. Any props that anyone wants to bring to put on the table that you dont mind people touching would be great. I'm thinking about doing Photos for donation to the the Kids Wish Network. Which if you havent heard of them they are like the Make A Wish organization..

    Im hoping that we can get some flyers and maybe some bussiness cards to put on the table.

    So if I have missed anything please let me know.

    If you can attend please post here and I will start a list and I also need to be able to tell Mark how many will be attending for the shows.

    Ok for anybody thats coming to this you can show up between 9:00-10:00 or later if you want depending how long it takes to get your costume on. I will be there about 9:00 to start setting up tables and such. I am also sending the names of those who are going to be there to Mark so he can give it to the people at the door so they will have your first name to get in. Hope to see you all Sunday.
