    I have formally announced the after party. if everyone can get the word out that would be great.

    I will be bringing the playdoh no worries :)
    I will need a head count asap since I will be providing the cake for the afterparty and will need to know how many to feed.

    I will be working on snack donations for this.. shouldnt be a prob. How will the dinner work with soda... does all that end at 7 ish? If so I will be getting a donation from my work for punch/juice. I work for a dairy distributor so I will be bringing cheese and crackers and helluva good dips .

    we also supply arizona ice tea and nesquick milkshakes... believe me I will be nagging the boss for these donations LOL the fun part will be for us to transport it. I believe we have a plant in Pa will have to see how far it is from the hotel.

    It will be best to have an accurate head count as soon as possible so I can have correct numbers for the donations :)

    My mom is a cake decorator for Wal-Mart. I can get her to buy a sheet cake at a discount if you want? I know she can pimp it out with Star Wars stuff too.

    you can ask her what it would cost. I was going to make a sheet cake but it would be much easier to have someone local make it. :)

    if she needs stuff for the cake let me know.

    I have a question for greencat....... as far as dishes go for the con - I know they clear everything away at 7ish but will they still supply us with plates for the afterparty? Otherwise I need to see if I can find some SW paperware on clearance ;)

    I was going to get a room at the con and just hangout all weekend. But I decided it would leave me with more money in pocket. I only live a half hour away, not a long drive, especially that late at night. Plus I'm trying to put a deck on my house in the next month or two, all the extra money I can save the better.

    I hear ya there. I really didnt want to soend the extra money however..... its only 50.00 more a night then one 4 miles away. I figured what the hell.

    Besides I just won the diet bet at work today and won 100.00 so that literally pays for one night at the con :)


    Im going poor as poor can be and if it werent the awards I wouldnt go. As it is the awards already put me out quite a bit so I dont think I will be spending anything at the con that weekend LOL

    Ummmm, the food service is until 8PM, not 7PM. So they won't clear away the food until then.

    ok.... this will go rigth after the awards. Are we having a brief intermission for this? bathroom break?

    We will need about 15 min to bring the cake out terry is bringing and set up refreshments.
    I have various props for the tables [face_devil] as well.

    If anyone has any ideas for this humor wise let me know.
    Greencat suggested Vader as a car salesman and yoda on a job interview.

    Is there anyone in your group who would like to help with this, you guys already have enough on your plate, lets get some fresh meat in here just for this.

    The main nitty gritty has been planned for this, we will need a body and some skit ideas.

    Terry do u still need paper goods for this?

    Those who live nearby or have hotel rooms will probably want to hang out. I've got a long drive home, so I won't stick around too late. I'll need to be back by 10:00 on Sunday to prepare for the costume panel. My costume for Sunday takes awhile to put together.

    I ordered the 1/2 sheet cake. The lady I talked to said it should be plenty. I got the Darth Vader kit for the cake (it was that or nothing I'm afraid). I will have to pick it up saturday morning before I come to the con. I will have my jeep if it's possible just tostore it in there until we need it? Or do we have to refrigerate something like that?

    as long as the frosting is not buttercream and it doesnt have a filling it should be fine. U might want to call them back and let them know it wont be refrigerated.

    When ever u pick it up you can store it in my room so its not outside :) no worries there.If anyone needs to store anything food wise or whatever crud they have they can use my room as storage I have no problem with
    that :)

    Thansk for ordering the cake terry u rock!

    Why no buttercream? I was told by my mom that if we can't get the cake refrigerated buttercream was the way to go so it wouldn't melt. She decorates cakes for a living so I think we should go with that kind. If we can't get it refrigerated then that would be a good idea to keep th ecake in your room.

    Maybe she meant whipped cream? Buttercream has more body and would stand up to heat better, but would not leave in the jeep if it's in the sun. Room temp would be good.

    As to "crashing," I'm wearing a different costume each day (Sat. & Sun.). It would be as much trouble to pack for this as it was to pack for Dragon*Con, where I stayed for three nights. I live about 65 miles away and I'd rather drive than deal with the major inconvenience of packing all my costume stuff for a one night stay. :)

    It's also cheaper and cheaper is better right now.

    Im sorry I did mean buttercream... geeez... (sorry multi tasking at work) you want to stay away from the whipped LMAO..


    [face_blush]


    Well, if its easier to store some of your costumes in my room you can, change do whatever thats fine.... I can loan out my room for what u guys need. no worries there!


    Again sorry for the confusion terry LOL
