    Couple questions...

    How long is the parade route again?
    And, how far is the meeting hall from the line-up spot?

    The parade is 2 hours long, but the walk itself is about 1 to 1.5 hours.

    The walk to the start position is about 15 min. away, the walk to the hall after the parade is about 2 min.

    Work booked me to work Friday Midnight til 8am (of Saturday) and then booked me for work that evening.
    After I had asked for it off...

    So I could try and make it down, but I think getting sleep may win the battle instead :)

    Environment canada is also calling for a high of 13 and 30 km/hr wind. I think it's going to be pretty craptastic even if it doesn't rain.

    Good for the people in really warm costumes though.

    Just a reminder....

    For the event, everyone has to chip in $5.00. That is for the "Beef on a Bun".

    I forgot about this, but I was given a box of around 50 2006 Episode III posters that I would like to give away...

    Also, I don't think I'll be staying for lunch. Besides the fact that allergies and stuff prevent me from eating most food, I have to be back in London as early as possible.

    I ended up getting 5 12 packs of various kinds of pop including one that's sugar free incase anyone can't/won't drink sugar.

    Now the trick is to remember to put them in steph's car

    It was great for all of us to be able to get up there and do this once again. Good job. Thanks for having us. Wish we could get together more often.

    Thanks for the calender. I needed a SW one for 2006.

    Hey everyone!

    We had a great time this year! This was Nikki's (The young girl in the light blue padme) first parade and Star Wars event and she had a blast!! All the younglings hope to come again NEXT year and have a blast again.

    These are the events that really show what kind of fun you can have with just a handfful of people, or a couple dozen! Apples to Apples at the end was great too!

    Sorry to all the people that I did not meet, there was the two women Jedi and an Obi-Wan that was new to me, I think Dean mentioned were from Pensylvania? Pittsberg?

    And Chris, holy is red ever the colour! For those who didn't notice, Chris was in his Royal Guard and right in front of dean and I, row wise. And who do you think got stopped for a few pictures? Stopped for hugs? shouts and hand slapping? Not Obi-Wan, not Anakin....

    One of the oddest times in costume where the usual odd man out was pretty popular! Pretty sure it was the best event for that costume ever lol! I don't know if Rob got mauled similiarly, but I really wouldn't be surprised!

    Thanks again for a great parade and time everyone! And thank you for all the compliments on the trading cards!

    Will have our pictures up shortly!

    Thanks to Chris and Debby for organizing this event!
    This was my first parade experience - I had a great time both at the actual parade and afterwards.
    Glad to see such a good turnout and happy the forcasted rain didn't happen.:)

    it was definately a great day. The weather was great, not only did it not rain, but it wasn't cold either. The Parade was great, and the get together afterwards was a blast. The girls had such a good time, and they were pretty darn well behaved. They had so much fun with Kaitlyn. It was great seeing everyone again, along with many new faces. Have to get together more often.

    YJN, and all;

    Had a GREAT time, as always. You guys are the consumate hosts.

    Sorry for my early departure, but my working nights left me only a couple of hours of sleep the night before, and I was spent, like my counterparts from the great steel city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who drove through the night to get there in time. (We later power-napped and "did the town" in Niagara Falls last night.) Sorry for those of you who did not get introduced to the Pittsburgh-ers; Tina, Jason and Michelle. My bad. But they did have a great time, all the same, and said they'll visit again!

    Steph and Bailey; Sorry for being so distracted! We ARE gonna rap about the new season of "Lost", starting this week! Can't wait for Wednesday!

    North-Ridgers: Always great to hang with you guys. See you all soon.

    Already looking forward to next year! But why wait? Let's start planning on something somewhere for us to all do again well before a year has passed, okay? Hey, the Holidays always make a great excuse for a FanForce Northeast get-together, eh?

    Peace... I'm out!

    -- Dean --

    PS: Everyone's photo albums look great!

    Thankyou guys, I really appreciate your hospitatality,

    Everyone was wonderful. And hopefully we can get even more people next year.

    Debbie, did the gals at the shelter like my dish I sent them?

    oh and to my newest friends from Pennsylvania, go ahead post those incriminating pictures.

    Well the censored ones from the restaurant, not the hotel. Who knew that being extremely tired could make someone appreciate a stone floor so much.
