    Parking is taken care of, I wouldn't mind help staning guard but Debby's father has graciously been able to help us block off with tape and pylons, though I would ideally like a few extra pylons.

    Being blocked should help all the more to get safe parking.

    Is everyone set food wise? Is there something we can bring to help out? :)

    Hye Guys, As it stands right now I won't be able to make it to the actual Parade, but I should be able to make it for the party afterwards since Saturday's are usually shorter days for me. I will bring some kind of Pasta Dish maybe?

    I hadn't posted anything until now because that is a working weekend for me, and I used up my vacation time pretty much now, so it looked like I couldn't go.

    Well I did manage to arrange something so I can make it for the actual parade part, but probably cannot stay too long at the post parade. Afraid I'm not able to bring any food, but if its any consolation I probably won't have time to eat any either.

    So add in one other X-Wing pilot into the mix.

    Hey guys, only a few days away!

    I just want to make sure we are prepared and I also want to make sure that no one forgets their 10 dollars towards food and womens place.

    Look forward to having you all there!

    I am getting very excited. Can't wait. Sucks its only once a year I get to see most of you all. I remember faces but never names really. It was, and still remains the largest gathering of costumed fans I have been with. It will be my third year and hopefully not the last. Its official I will be Endor Han this year. See you all Saturday morning.

    I can't seem to get out of going to this wedding, so I won't actually be there for the parade. I will try to drop by when and if I get home in time.

    Have fun!!!

    And don't burn down the hall. My dad will kill me.

    We'll run out to the store tonight and pick up a variety of 2-litre sodas. We'll bring along some plastic cups too.

    Chris is driving the truck. No need to worry about that.

    Hope you have good weather.

    I was curious if you guys knew if FRS (and/or GMRS) radios were ok for use during the parade... I know that a few of the troopers down in the states use them - and that we will have them for the first part of the caravan ride. (ok - so I'm a bit late to be posting this and hope for a response...)

    I know that some channels are restricted in Canada via FCC guidelines:
    So long as we avoid those frequencies - I assume (hope?) that useage is fine.

    I didn't know if any of the marchers had experience or knowledge.

    I don't think its a big deal, as long as you stay away from those frequencies you should be fine. Heck I wasn't even aware of those rules.

    Christian, just so you know Roy has his Vader here, if you want to wear your other suit it's up to you :)

    See you guys in the morning!

    We will have FRS if need be, set the channel to 5/1 if you can!

    Thanks for bringing Soda's Nicky! Pop is good too ;)

    Have fun everyone. Sorry we couldn't make it, but Xander didn't come home until yesterday and we are a little winded from the exciting week we had.

    I would say you have a reasonable excuse for missing this year. Maybe next year Xander can be a part of the fun too!

    The day was a huge success! The weather was awesome, the turn-out was great and the crowds loved us, as usual ;) .

    Our post-parade gathering also went over well and we were able to make a considerable donation to Women's Place (still waiting on the total).

    I am glad that everyone was able to make it, and for the most part arrived on time.
    Hope to see you all again nest year!

    Hey Everybody from a spectators view you guys looked awesome, surreal would be a better word. My kids loved it and especially loved going to the hall and seeing everyone together in costume. Congratulations on such a great turnout. Hopefully next year I'll be in there with you.
    Thanks again Chris, looks like the lenses will fit nicely.
