    "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."

    The imperial army of plastic cups ;)


    I had tons of fun. It was a huge blast :D *points to new sig line* haha!

    The gathering of USers at applebees was good fun as well. Kiwi!

    After running for 21 hours straight with 3 hours of sleep, and only getting about 9-10 hours more, still very tired ;) Was worth it though :D

    I had a great time adn the weather was perfect. It was nice seeing everyone again.

    I will have to do some extensive testing on the mini-R5 as pushing it was not fun :)

    Everyone it was great seeing you again.

    even though having the flu sucked royally. Took me sixteen hours to get home. I slept in my car for a few hours and drove a few hours at a time.

    It just wasn't the same without Debby and Dana there to warn us about the judges...

    I just wanted to openly thank and congratulate Justin and Stef for a job well done planning and executing this event. Without them I?m sure we would not have been entered into the parade this year.

    I had a great time with everyone once again. It?s always nice to spend time with friends. I?m just sorry everyone couldn?t make it that said they were coming.

    The only part that sucked was that I ended up getting the flu right after the parade. I went home and woke up with a sore throat, fever, and stuffed up. I even ended up taking Monday off from work.

    Sorry Chris, that would be me who gave it to you.

    Trust me driving back from Canada really sucked.

    and I missed the day of work to.

    Sorry I haven't had to chance to post earlier. As some of you may know, KnightShade's grandmother passed away on Friday so we've had a lot of family stuff to do this weekend after the parade.

    We had a lot of fun marching in our very first G&W parade. I'm so glad we had such a perfect day for it. Here are the pictures from KnightShade's camera courtesy of guest photographer RSWingnut! And hanging out with everyone afterwards was a blast of course too! I'm so glad we were able to participate this year. Thanks!

    Thanks for posting those pictures Nicky! We were all very glad that you came out! Thank you for taking loads of pictures as well, you and your group are most welcome up here!

    Chris, Stephanie and I were also quite sick Saturday night, whereas I was recovered for work today Stephanie was still fighting symptoms, I hope you feel well!

    Thank you EVERYONE for your help, food, sodas ( ;) ) and great conversation. Chris gives us too much credit, without all of you there would not have been such a great hit!

    Are Peter and I of the few who didn't get sick afterwards? I was just so stiff the next day I could hardly move, but not sick.

    I had so much fun, I can't wait till next year....

    Yes I am, and I deal with kids all day! :p

    I will show you the George Carlin piece one day on being sick; I totally agree that is why I'm fine.

    Hello all , I too enjoyed myself, I really liked meeting all of you folks. You know people ask me why & can't understand why I do this kind of thing, (Fandom, Costuming, etc) I guess there are many reasons, but getting to know new people & experiance new things. This is why I do it. Agasin a great time it was, & hope to see you soon.

    Hey, everybody;

    I personally had the best time with you all, and can't wait to hang out again. Much thanks to Justin for the training, and hook-ups on the pouches, collodion, and everything else! I did not get sick, and bowled some good frames and games on Sunday with TStarflyer and his missus, DarSolo on Sunday, the first of our Star Wars Strike Force League days. Much fun!

    Meeting all of you though was the best part of the day for me, and I'll be visiting your boards here more frequently in the future, especially to chew over "Lost" tidbits with Steph C., Leigh, and Bayley! Later!

    Even though I arrived late and totally missed the parade I had a great time afterwards hanging out with you all and meeting lots of new people as well as catching up others. I can't wait till next year :)

    Greet to see some of you again from CNSFX and meet a large majority of you for the first time.
    Glad ya enjoyed the pics. I tried to get a shot of EVERY costume but it got a little tricky when we started marching. Hope we can all get together again soon!
