    Since I haven't made any props I don't think I would be of much use other than taking up space.

    The museum imagines this will be as much as a memorabilia / photo op table as it will be a demo of the North Ridge's builders. If you've made anything for your club activity, costumes, props, set pieces, etc., you should come and bring that stuff.

    So far we have commitments from:
    Bill R
    Anna
    Michelle
    Dave Barone
    Steve Lukasik
    Sean and R2
    Larry, Janice and Claw'd
    Nick R
    Jon and R2 and sabers
    Biz
    Chris Ballard (partial availability)

    We will have a goodly amount of room to display our *ahem* talents in the main hall. What might work best is to have at least 2-3 table stations set up for us - one smaller table for NR publicity/videos on the computer, one for crafts (see below) and one for droid/lightsaber demos. Plenty of floor space for quick dueling demos also.
    In addition to socializing/posing/answering questions about making our stuff, a few crafts seem in order.
    We'll do a few sessions of making lightsabers alternating with SW bag puppets.
    Because the fair will permeate the entire science center, there are options to spread out our presence a little.
    There is a children's library area just behind the shop where we could have a character doing a reading for small kids.
    More later.

    Until they hire someone I am on call forever. Might be able to work the table if I don't get called in.

    Is anyone interested in portraying Claw'd? (being inside the costume for a while?)

    As Larry will be bringing the robot, "mrs Robinson" will attend to keep him company. Jim will also come to help out at the event.

    Absolutely! We plan on having a table and that will need manning. In addition to our <censored> and dueling demo, we also want to provide crafts. Also, costumed characters, particularly those wearing helmets and masks, can use non-costumed attendants to help them navigate safely through crowds and building challenges.
