    Bayley,

    You can always tell them in the interviews you need the day off. I did this when I was hired on and had a trip to Las Vegas arranged.

    I said that I wanted to come out and do this one. Hopefully Dan and I with the girls still can. But... I am going in for Surgery on the 12 of September, and I may not be up to par by the 30th. If I am feeling alright, we will be there, if not, then no. It's a.. will have to wait and see thing.

    I hope you aren't have too "serious" a surgery, although any surgery can be serious. Hope it works out that you guys can come. I know our girls would have a blast together. We won't be "in" the parade, but there for the festivities afterwards. Thought I would take her to see some of the parade. Hope that works out.

    Ok...

    1) Lets get a list of people coming to the parade (including those from out of town).

    2) Are we doing the beef on a bun/pot luck dinner again? (we provide the "main meal" and everyone else brings drinks/salads/treats)

    I'll start a thread on the Buffalo forums and get a head count to you shortly.

    is it ok if the out of towners bring money for food?

    I am having Ear Surgery. not too serious, but because of where it is, could be complications. Dan and I will be there for sure with the girls. If I am not feeling up to walking, I will stay in the crowd with the girls and watch. The Beef and buns is a must, they are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good. And the pot luck for everything else is always a good idea.

    I'm interested, though I don't think I have a wearable costume. I might be able to fix shaden, but probably not, the over tunic is really bad.

    Any avalible costumes?

    I'll come as Jocosta again, but I'll bring my extra costume pieces again... random jedi items, minus boots and belt, and a few rubber mask (like Jar Jar)

    Rabellaka, Would you possibly mind if I borrowed your Jedi costume if you have it to spare? As it happens I own boots and the belt...but I lack everything else pretty much ;)

    What ime is the parade and what time would we need to arrive to avoid the road closings?

    The parade starts at 11am, but I am guessing that you should be here around 9ish to avoid any problems with road closings.

    Last year we were told that road closures start at 9am. A map of the route can be found here.

    See you there!

    from the G&W website:

    Take the Pen Centre Shuttle to the Grande Parade on September 30 and remember to park early in Downtown St. Catharines as road closures start at 9 am.

    Bayley, you can borrow whatever you need from my extra pieces.

    That reminds me, I need to hem the sleeves on my costume, I still haven't gotten around to doing that.

    Just in case anyone was worried...

    We FINALLY got the "good to go" letter from the parade people.

    So for those wanting to know if we are using my truck again...yes. I will have to be down at the parade route with the truck at it's starting point by 9 am. I would suggest everyone else be at the mason hall at that time also.
