    Nope, not bad at all brother. With what I have gathered, we'll make a very nice donation. Good job everyone. [face_dancing]

    okay, so the total for the roadblock was $363.29. Not bad for 2 hours in the heat, but not great. still every bit helps.

    will have the total figures on how much Light the Night raised this year. For our time, this year's goal was $1,000. We raised $1,643.29 roughly. Awesome job everyone. very proud. Big thanks to everyone that donated, and to everyone who came out to walk tonight. we get closer every day.

    We also met a great family of Superfans (as you can tell from the Clone Trooper in the last pic). I gave them our card and invited them out to meet us some time. Because of the board problems they can't join/post but I hope they're reading this <<waves>>.

    Awesome job guys! Sorry about the scratchy throat, it turned out to be nothing. But I didn't want to take any chances. I remember I became ill when I walked last year with a runny nose... it became much worse afterwards. However... Mika!!!! [face_dancing] I LOVE the Dooku costume!!! Cant' wait to see it in the Empire!! RAWKIN!!!!

    Awesome, simply awesomeness! Way to go!!! =D=

    From Light the Night: On behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the patients we serve, thank you for your tremendous fundraising efforts! With your help, $340,000 has been raised to support our mission in finding cures for blood cancer. Donations are still coming in, and we expect to end the campaign at approximately $420,000.

    As for the team itself, our goal this year was $1000. The grand total for the team was $1,643.29! Congrats guys!!! next year, for the roadblock, i am going to try to get the 501st and the Mando's to help us out.

    WAY TO GO EVERYONE!! This is sooo wonderful! =D=

    About the 501st.. they usually like to do these events under their own banner. And that's O.K.... just want to give you a heads up on that. But what you can do, is get a hold of the 501st local Garrison Commander of "The MidWest Garrison", and let him know the contact information. If they don't see this as a 501st event, then simply send out personal invites like you did last year to people you know like Captain Midnight and his family, T.K. Tim, and a few others. I'm sure it they are free they would more than welcome the opportunity to join in. Captain Midnight and family would have been at the walk this year, but they had an Emperial wedding to attend. Wow! That must have been a spectacle to see! I'd love to go to a wedding where people are getting married in Star Wars costumes... especially Trooper costumes. :D Oh my!! [face_dancing]

    I think you mean "MidSouth Garrison" (Ky and TN). The easiest way is just to go to the main 501st website and "Request an Appearance" and then it goes through the channels to the local command staff.
