    Ok I felt I needed to bump this back to the top to remind everyone about it. We really need a good showing guys. There are people donating major things to this event because of our group, so we need to have a good showing. Hey is Terry still coming???? If you can do your best to show up in costume. I think this is going to be a lot of fun!! I can't wait...

    Dont forget about the Short film festival too...they are expecting a large showing from us. Hope to see you all there!! :)

    Yes I am going to be there. My company, (Party City) is going to donate about 5 or 6 pretty well packed boxes of costumes from last year to the Foundation. I need to make sure the lady from the Foundation knows this because we need a letter from her stating that we did infact donate them to her...for tax purposes at work ( you know how the government is lol).

    Hey, just a little pep talk in general guys.

    We're stressed out. It's that simple. We're like roommates that have spent too much time together lately. We're almost through this month.

    We have had a lot on our plate. Look at it this way, we have nothing scheduled for Oct. until the next MF and it should probably stay that way. Maybe we'll get together and practice, but other than that we should just probably take some time to lick our wounds.

    We have learned a lot this month. We are still establishing ourselves in a few ways, so this month has taught us some great lessons. On this off month, why don't we talk about some ways to do some more serious recruiting? I'm game. I know someone has a flyer and I know a couple of places to put them. Let's figure it out.

    We do have this one last troop this month though, and it's a good one. I would like to work with the MaWF regularly and maybe it could replace some of our MF stuff and we can take a load off, you know? The MaWF people are great and they really want to make it enjoyable for the kids. That's why we were invited. Let's get pumped one last time and then take a rest guys. I know everyone here, and I know that we can pull this last event off this month. Go Knights!

    Why did that sound way to much like I was playing a football game? Win one for the Ob-ster?? Doesn't quite ring well....

    I think it was a nice thing to do. I think we are all feeling pressue. All pep talks sound the same whether they are for business or football.

    Since Ani hates football I doubt that is where that comes from.

    Hope you were kidding. That was a bit rude.

    P.S. We were mentioned on the News this morning during the morning show. YAY!

    Come on, I just can't beleive what I'm reading. This event is been on the boards for more than a month (thats 40 days) and in that time people couldn't ask to get off early for just one day. I CAN"T BELIEVE THIS.

    That sounds reasonable. If the event was posted well in advance people should be able to go. You can call it community service or charity. Your Boss will understand, and must of the times they let you go.

    Hey Hey Hey. Regardless of how long something has been on the board should have no bearing on ones attendance. I personally know that Chase's vacation time is just that. I wouldn't ask off for it either if it warranted it ;)

    If you can make it I think that is awesome and if you can't you shouldn't be chastised. I can remember LOTS of Mama Fu's events that people didn't go to for a very long time (ahem) because they were busy with work, family and school.

    It's charity people. Be nice. Go ahead and chastise at me too. I won't be there. There is no AC in the van and since we have yet to get it fixed I can not come. I'm not keeping the kids in a 90 degree car all day while Chase works for anyone.

    Have fun. The turn out still looks like it will be great. Especially considering in the beginning they were only going to allow Canon characters and 4 or 5 people.

    Yes, I misses the first 3 events at Mama fu's, but I manage to change my schedule around so I can attend to them.

    You did =D=

    I'm sure when the flow of events slows this will no longer be an issue. We all knew September was going to be difficult.

    Sept is a hard month. Esp for me. No offense, but I do hope we get a good turn out. I might not be able to post tonight, I have to head to Jax and take care of the dog. But, I will post. Maybe one of our newbies will attend. We always have spare costumes. Come on, I know Randy1Kenobi was interested in trooping in costume. I'll lone ya one.
