    Woohooo !! its that time of year again to freeze our fannies outside and march in a parade :)

    The village of liverpool is having the Hallowen festival/parade again this year and believe it or not..... we were invited back!!!!

    (yes I know dont fall out of your chairs) LOL

    The event info is as follows:

    When: Saturday Oct 28th
    Where: Village of liverpool
    why: because we like you. M O U S E....... (sorry bad joke)
    Time: 10 a.m. parade starts (parade line up is 9 a.m.)


    We do not have a booth there this year. Due to the lack of members LOL
    But it would be nice to have us march as a group. We could do lunch afterwards if everyone wants :)

    We have the option to decorate a vehicle , make a float or march as a group. So any thoughts or suggestions on this would be great! :)


    The deadline for parade submissions is Oct 15th. I am praying we will have some responses by then so we can respond yay or nay to them.

    It would be a nice excuse to get into costume again and to hang out and see each other. So what does everyone say?
    Come on... dust off the old jedi gear and come on down! ;)


    EDIT: I sent invites to our neighboring chapters so hopefully we get a few numbers :) *crosses fingers*

    I will post any news as I hear :)

    Glad we have more than one person marching this year. We may get lucky and have 3 :) LOL

    cool beanies! I will be posting info as we get it. I am calling the promotor tomorrow to see what is what.
    We may have some visitors from Rochester for this, nothing confirmed yet from them.

    Ian and Charles will be there along with their newest member Bob.
    We also have Russ and myself marching. I will try to bribe chris into marching as well.

    I think we will be at about 7 when its all said and done. If we can hit the magic number 10 for this I would be happy :)

    We should have the FF banner for this as well.

    What's the weather forecast for Saturday? If bad, then I'll wear my Royal Guard costume. I shudder at the thought of marching in that, but it's my cold weather costume since I can layer it. We have plenty of batteries so I will be able to breathe in it for an extended period too. If the weather is okay, I'll wear my white Leia costume which I can also layer if needed. It will probably be too cold for my Mara, and definitely too cold for my Ewok village Leia.

    Will there be a place to change or are we getting ready at our cars? What time do you want us there?

    Everything is pretty much outdoors. They dont have a place for us this year to change. Its supposed to snow this week and all weekend. cold. So I would say layers and plenty of them. I am thinking of my vader just to my face warm. ;)

    We need to line up at 9 am so if everyone wants to meet at my house by 8:15 and we left by 8:30 its a 15 minute drive into the village. If u need to change at the house before hand then arrive with enough time to change etc. :)

    Just drop me a PM if u need directions or info.
    Since there is a small group of us I am considering everyone just coming back to my place for grub,warmth and some gaming and fun... Let me know :)

    I was asked tonight at my childrens bowling league if we would make an appearance after the parade at 11 at the bowling alley for thewir holiday party. They will provide pizza for us and a free game of bowling if we show. The down side is we have to cover shoe rental which is... um 2.75?

    At any rate, I told them I would ask everyone if they would be up for an appearance. Bowling sounds fun and food to boot, soo... just have to mingle with the kids for 30 minutes and we're done....

    anyone up for it?
    LEt me know so I can call him tomorrow night to confirm :)

    ok, We have freezing rain for tomorrow :(

    I know I asked if everyone would like to go to the bowling event afterwards...

    It was brought to my attention that we may be soaked to the bone afterwards and may not be able to get over there making a nice clean impression , not to mention we may all be too tired and cold at that point LOL

    Since there is only a small handful of us marching and if it does indeed rain, (forcasting down pour all night tohight and tomorrow) there will be a low attendance for the parade particualrly small children who we are trying to be there for ;)

    There are at least 40 kids at this bowling league on saturday that would really benefit from us being there.


    So I guess I am asking does everyone want to go to the bowling alley instead? We can be inside nice and dry, hang out with the kids and bowl a free game and eat some grub ;)
    We have a place to change there as well. So if you decide to go with the alley and are changing your costume please post. :)

    If there are a few who still want to march and a few who want to go to the bowling alley we can split up if needed.

    I just got off the phone with russ and he is for the bowling alley.

    I have 2 for the alley so far. Anyone want to post their thoughts?

    thanks for your participation and understanding :)

    I'm up for either, or both. I am a marching band director so I do anything rain, snow, sleet, or hail. Hey, we call ourselves the postman marching band. Just let us know in Bingo ASAP so that I know where I'm driving to as I need to gather directions to there tonight and then from there to Central Square. :)
