    Here's an up date for the event on Friday May 18,2007

    This being the first time holding this event. We are sorry and know this is a work day or school day. However this is the best that we can do on our bugget. At this time members of 501st will be joining us and with sucsess this year we will do better next year.

    For the die hard fans who can not get enough Star Wars and in the tradition of the line. We are gathering at 6:00 am. in SpringBank Park of west London (1085 Commissioners RD W.) This is a time for random saber duels of all kinds even Sith vs Sith or Jedi vs Jedi, anything goes. Troopers can march the roads in the park even set up post to question the morrning joggers if they have seen those two droids. I do believe that R2 D2 will be attending.

    At noon we will be having lunch and resting up for the main events.

    The main events will start at 4:00pm.
    Both events are broken into age groups.
    children to 12 years old.
    13 to 18 years old.
    19 to 29 years old.
    30+ the pre-Star Wars fans who started it all.

    There are prizes for each age group. Prizes are from local business even some signed work from Dark Horse comic books.

    First is the costume contest: contestants need to register between 4:00 and 7:00 pm. Our guest judge is Terry Brown of Notches, winners will be anounced by 8:00pm.

    Second is the Saber tornament: A rules and release form must sign to participate. Our guest judge will be Pat a Kempo instructor from Phonix Fighting.

    Please drop us a line if you would like to attendhere. We can use all the positive reponse that we can get.

    Unfortunately I did not realise that May 18th is the start of the Victoria Day long weekend and we will be out of town. I thought it was the following week. Neither of us will be able to make it. Sorry :(
