    I would like to. Do you think this would be a weekend thing, or maybe just a day trip?

    Only if I could split a room between me and a few people. That's the only way I could afford it.

    Sorry, I forgot I got this last week. My email piled up on me. Anyway:

    Hello Indigo_Jade & Rogue Thunder,

    I'm one of the event coordinators for the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo, and I'm looking for a little help from all the Star Wars groups in Calgary & Edmonton. I'm looking for people that have costumes, and would be willing to volunteer at our show to work 'security'. It would be interesting element to add to our show.

    The other thing, we've just signed on
    [I won't post who it is as they haven't announced it on their site yet*] to be a guest at our show. It's not officially announced yet on our site, but that will be happening mid-next week. So, any help in terms of promoting the show would be greatly appreciated. We'd be happy to give you guys some space to set up at the show.

    The show's will be on Sunday May 7th, in Calgary at the Big Four Building on the Stampede Grounds. We'll have over 30,000 sq feet of exhibit space, and lots of special guests in comics, anime, animation, gaming, and sci-fi.

    Let me know if you guys are willing to help out, and we can brainstorm a bunch of ideas! I will also be setup at the Edmonton Toy & Comic show on March 12, so we can talk there if you guys are attending.

    Best Regards,

    Kandrix Foong
    Event Coordinator

    *PM me if you wanna know. It's a biggie! ;)

    ED: Anyway, I thought it was going to be a multi-day events, but it looks like it won't be, so a hotel won't be necessary. I got it confused with Con-version for some reason. [face_blush]

    Sorry again for forgetting to post this.

    What does he mean by security? Like, just as it sounds? We would be security?

    Probably like the 501st at Celebration III. In other words you wouldn't be expected to put yourself in any kinda danger should a situation occur. You just report it and the real security would come along. You'd basically be doing crowd control, directing lines, helping people if they're lost. Basically just having visible people in cool costumes to attract more people to the event.

    I hope many of you can come down for this. It should be a lot of fun!

    The day before is "free comic book day" so many of us will be in costume at one of the local comic shops. Consider it a mini mall walk. More info as that develops.

    Excitement..heh..Adventure...any Jedi craves not these things..you are wreckless....so was I if you remember...I'm wreckless too...Lets Go!

    I was wondering....would costumes be manditory??...Otherwise...i'm bantha fodder

    Domino_Leia.SHAAK_GG..did you know my car did the Kessel run in under 12 parsecs?...it will go .2 past light speed...we would sure be able to avoid any imperial entanglements.

    Do I smell road trip maybe?

    lol

    We haven't that much with us. But we could pay you two thousand
    now, plus fifteen when we reach Alderaan...er, Calgary.

    I thought it was man flesh that I smelled, but then I kinda thought about it, and decided it smelled more like a road trip. Yup, defiitely road trip, definitely.

    We would have room in the car for one more person, or two jawas.:D

    Kent...is that the mall that the 501st do the Free Comic Book Day at? I BELIEVE there have been some trouble with us wandering in that mall.....but I could have the wrong mall. Might want to check with Scot on that one just to make sure. There is one mall in Calgary that really, really dislikes costumed people there. As in been asked to leave there.

    Truly amazing. I have only seen that piece of junk in action once, and you never did makw the jump to lightspeed:(


    Hopefully not Jawas. If we leave the ship for a minute they might try to get away with it and then sell it:p

    okay, so this is coming up really fast, we need to know who all is in, who's driving, who needs rides? Berx do you have the e-mail address of the person who sent you the information so we can find out what time they want us there and if there is a change room etc, i can contact them if you want?
