    My sister and I will be there. Once Chris and Deb confirm we are in (there is little chance that we aren't), will you look into getting us the school again Tom?

    Well, since you twisted my arm, I suppose I can look into getting the school again, for the before and after parade gathering ;)

    Maybe we can have a cake. I don't like chocolate though.

    It's never actually on my birthday, it always seems to be a few days before or a few days after. Eventually it will be, but that won't be until 2013.

    legoman and I were talking this afternoon and thought it was worth mentioning that several of us have multiple costumes, which means there are some costumes that can be loaned out to those who don't have one. So if you want to march but don't have a costume, or if you have a friend in that situation, let us know. The more, the merrier!!

    I have an extra jedi costume, sans belt, that I could lend out. That's tunic, tabbards, obi and robe.

    Cool. Actually, I have two, but one is a dark red, almost burgundy colour, but a bit pink. I don't think many people would want to wear that one.

    looks like we can add 3 more to the list..

    Christine as Fireside Padme
    Joe as Anakin (or anakin look-alike depending on how good the costume turns out)
    Chris as Jedi

    Or I could create a hybrid Captain Kirk/Jedi outfit and get my butt kicked by an entire legion ;)

    So, Chris is still trying to get the day off but the other two are confirmed.

    my first troop!

    The parade is now 3 weeks away. I would like to get a final count of who is coming.

    If you will be marching, I need to know which costume you will be wearing. (We have extras that can be borrowed. Please ask if you want one.)

    If you will be bringing food for the potluck, please let me know what you will be bringing so I can make sure we don't have too much of one thing. Drinks (more than just pop), plates, cups, forks etc. will be needed. These might be easiest to bring if coming from out of town. I have one dessert item covered, and I believe Chris and Deb are supplying beef on a bun again.

    We could still use 1-3 people to volunteer to march out of costume to assist with water, maintaning marching order etc.

    Also don't forget to bring $5-10 to help cover the cost of building rental and for a donation to the shelter.

    **NOTE** We are unable to get Alexandra school again this year. We are working on getting a new location. I will update everyone as soon as I know where.

    We will still be meeting around 9-9:30am. Please see the above post and respond accordingly. We need to get the final numbers so we can have enough food.
