    Yrol (echoseven),

    Our condolences to you and yours! Safe trip to/from Drum.

    As for the BBQ, could you PM me with your address? I could bring my xbox ;) j/k

    Also, did you ever get a digital copy of the Calgary Herald Page 3 from May 19th, of us?
    Here's a link to where I posted it to the Badlands site:

    Dave - thanks! I never did get a digital copy. And sorry - I meant to say hello in class the other night as that was the first time I think I've seen you out of costume :)

    I'll be sure and check out the site.

    I don't have a video games system (I know -we're living in the dark ages!), so please do bring your games. I'll PM you my address.

    Shall we say around 2pm on Sunday?

    T&E - finally! You made it to the boards - WELCOME!! Yes, we will have a re-match. Although I'm sure more than one person in our group will give me a run for my my Republic credits! How 'bout you bring hotdogs and buns?

    Ryan - you are the COOLEST!! I can't wait to see your solutions to T&E's problem.

    I will bring a salad, box of sprite cans and maybe a crackers and cheese plate or something of that nature. Echosevin..you have all the games I have so I won't bring mine then. how is your practice saber looking? I have sanded and primed mine ...now to the spray painting. Hopefully I will like the color.

    Yes, of course spouses are welcome! I will PM my address to everyone shortly.
    Anyone feel like bringing something for dessert?? I was thinking of doing up a fruit platter but if feel like something else, feel free to bring it.

    The weather is looking promising for Sunday - +22. Not too hot or too cool....

    Mr Smith and I are still maybes. I'll try to get our confirmed answer today - we have something at 10am and then something at 6pm-ish, which does technically leave some time in the afternoon :).

    If we're coming I will bring something sweet - sadly I won't have time to make anything myself before then, but we will be at the Farmer's Market Sunday morning, so I bet I could find something yummy!

    Raj and I have worked out two possible solutions to the '2' cut from the ox-stance. Hopefully - if I can lift my arms by then (maybe I've been over-practising just a bit... :) ) - I can share them.

    Echoseven...so sorry to hear about your loss. :(

    Unfortunately I can't make it on sunday...I've been working at futureshop almost 40 hours a week and I'm still trying to keep up with my other job...(gurr). The good news is that I get an employee discount...cost + 10%...and we normally carry force effects lightsabers. I'll post on the boards when we get some more. :)

    I hope you all have fun on sunday, and may the force be with your practice. Sounds like you are all learning lots! I am going to try and get the 20th off so that I can attend the toy fair.

    ~Sarah~

    Edit: Just to let you guys know, Ryan Weiber has started up a limited run of stunt hilts/blades for fighting. Head over to www.ryan-w.com to check them out. I don't know if anyone really wants to fork out the money to buy one, but they are a good template if we decided to make out own.

    We've missed seeing you Jordain! Don't work too hard now - save your energy for the toy fair. Perhaps the group should get into our 'gear' and pay you a surprise visit at work ;) Wouldn't that be a sight??!

    On another note, I still have to get your input on that wonderful belt you made. I know you got most if not all the stuff at Tandy's but I wanted to take a closer look at yours to see what hardware as well as leather that I need.

    Have I missed anyone with the address? If so, please let me know and I'll send it on to you.
    Magpie, hope you and Mr. Smith can at least pop in (if you have the energy) - I'll PM you the address just in case (if I haven't already done so yet).

    Everyone should have the directions by now (Dooks - I just PM'd you). If I've missed anyone, please let me know.

    Won't be on the boards tonight (taking a friend to see ROTS - can you believe she hadn't seen ANY of the SW movies???!! :eek: Don't worry - we had a OT marathon a few weeks ago, and last night we watched the first two prequels. One person at a time, enlighten I shall [face_mischief] ), but I will check tomorrow morning before we head out to Drumheller.

    Enjoy your Friday night....!

    I will be at class at 6:30 pm sharp.
    We can go over stuff in the extra first half hr. outside (more space).
    Then at 7:00 move inside. If you can't make it till 7:00 it's OK,
    we will just do review. But if all are there we will start fresh stuff at 6:30.

    enjoy the Q.
