    Hey! Okay, this is something that could be looked at as a burden to some, but a blessing to others: We have been invited to take part in an event to raise awareness for the American Cancer Association. It will be at the Halloween Express in North Little Rock. The catch is, it will be on October 7th. Bad thing is, that's 2 events in one day. Good thing is, the race for the cure is fairly early in the day, I believe at 0800, and the Halloween Express event would be in the afternoon. So, people coming from out of town to the race/walk could get two events in for the price of one. Anyone interested? I would like to get a starting count by the end of the week.

    Already talked to the "Boss man" on this one.

    Sounds good. (Assuming the Dr. will allow it.)

    Hey guys like she said it does make two events in one day but for those driving in from out of town it makes it easier on the gas thing. The owner of Halloween Express seemed real excited about it. He needs a for sure rough head count and to know if the date is ok by Friday of this week. He is going to call the radio stations and have his ads changed saying we will be there. There will be alot of people in town for the walk that day and we will get alot of PR.

    Is this costumed or optional? I think I might be able to work something out and be there (as long as I don't have to work).

    It will be costumed but Im sure he will understand as long as we dont get tomany people not in costume. Because we need spooters and people that can see to help keep an eye on the money and anwser ? to people.

    Hey, whatever works! I should make it in costume...get around, by some miracle, to finishing my sheer thing and wearing white outfit under it; renting the good one from Costume Corner, whatever works out for me. I don't see why I couldn't make it to both...this Halloween Express is in an easy to find place, isn't it?

    @};-

    Oh, the Arkansith calendar says the race is from 2pm -4pm. Has it been changed to 8 in the morning? Doesn't matter, I just want to make sure.

    Go ahead and set it for the 7th.

    Haven't seen much complaining about the date. So, go with it.

    (This is just my opnion and well...thats what it is.)

    I'm pretty sure Counduit can make this part since it'll be in the afternoon.

    Kynstar is correct.

    It'll be in the pm after The Race for the Cure.

    Feel free to join us in either.

    We can still add people to our team.

    Sharon go ahead and let him know ( I misplaced his number) 7 to 10 maybe a few more that wont be in costume but there for spoters and such. I guess see if 1PM till 4ish would be ok with him that should give us plenty of time ti do the walk change grab a bit an be over there. Tell him it will look alot nicer if we can go in the back and change if he can swing it. Thanks and Mac I really didnt mean it the way it sounded.

    You may find these requests tedious and annoying, but could you change the thread title to include what this is about/date...?

    Humbly asking please...

    By the way, I'm planning on being there, but as the 8th is our anniversary, It's not for shoor and I need to check with the Queen Mum. Since I'm doing the race in the morning, she may want me to take her out in the afternoon/evening since we don't go out on Sunday...

    You mean it's right by the 67/167 strip? That certainly won't be a problem~! Count me in, costume and all. [face_dancing]

    P.S. Should I bring my lightsaber?
