    Apparently I totally forgot to post this on the boards. :eek: Whoops!

    Event runs from 9am to 3pm.
    Water & a light lunch (usually pizza) is provided. However, there will be food trucks, if your appetites take you elsewhere (plus, Sweet'Ness Cupcakes RULE!)
    Opportunities for costumed and non-costumed peeps.
    Expected attendance is 2-3K people.
    Foam Sabers, crafts, photo-ops, Blast-A-Trooper, X-Wing Open Cockpit, and LFL artist Kevin Graham will be on-hand.

    Give a shout if you're coming to help out so I can get a head count, please. @SITH__CHICK will need a list of names by May 1st.

    Parking: Head around to the back and enter through the Sally Port Doors until 9am. If you're coming later and want to get in that way, coordinate with someone already there (not me) to be able to let you in the back doors. Parking may be scarce at times, and this will be the best option for you.

    Setup Time: We'll be there bright and early at 7am (okay, maybe not bright, but you get the picture). Doors open at 9am, and there will be a LINE of people waiting, if past events are any indicator.

    For anyone bringing in big stuff, setup a time with me to get loaded in any time during the weekend, if you like. I am available in the afternoon on Friday, and any time on Saturday.

    Clean Up Crew: For those not heading over to the Outlaws game, it's usually fast business to clean up. I think the most it ever took was an hour, and that included waiting for some folks to come pick up stuff.

    Are there any questions I need to address?

    I'll be there probably for the afternoon and cleanup. No photographer; sorry. Standard disclaimer applies.

    There's a slim chance I might be able to steal the car for setup at 7-8 or 9ish. Put me down as "possible extra runner" for a couple hours. I'm working scheduling out with hubby.

    @Haikukidu, its the table where we hand out the foam sabers...although I think we're going to RMFF up that table and put the runner and the Death Star Prize Wheel (of death and prizes) on it.

    I tentatively signed up for Foam Saber duty in the morning and X-Wing duty in the afternoon. I got such a kick out of dressing as ANH Luke and being the gatekeeper for going up into the cockpit of the X-Wing. Hope to do that again.

    Hi there!

    I'm the creator of The Ridiculous Menace, one of the fan films that @he-guy is showing at this event. When he contacted me to ask if he could show it, I decided to come to Denver to see it. I'm excited to meet you guys and to see my movie on the big screen. This will also be the first convention of any sort I've attended, so it should be a fun experience all around.

    I hope you guys will have a chance to check out the movie. If you want more info on it, you can find it here:

    Teaser Trailer


    Full Trailer


    The full movie is on vimeo, I can link to it here but I didn't want to until I knew if it was okay or not.

    It looks like there will be only one bus at 2:30pm now according to Scott on the MG boards.

    And somehow I'm not able to click on any block to add my name on the googlesheet. I'll be there all day 7:00am to when bus leaves (2:30pm). I've arranged with Zoo for droid drop off on Saturday afternoon and pickup Monday evening. See you all Sunday!

    Also, a BIG reminder: if you haven't already please fill out the background check form required by the museum for all volunteers and bring it with you. My goal is 100% of the volunteers from the local SW groups have it turned in. If you have volunteered at the museum before and have turned it in then you are good to go. I'll be collecting these on Sunday so Zoo can concentrate on other more important things (it's the least I can do to help out). Zoo, if you can add a link to the form in the first post I would appreciate it.

    I plan to be at the foam sabers but will have both kids in tow so I cannot guarantee to be there for an entire time slot. ;)

    Please do not add columns, rows, etc. to the Google doc. If you think it needs to be there ask me to do it.

    We had the Prize Wheel added to the Foam Saber table, that would never work for SO many reasons. No prize wheel, not enough man power, we will save that for DCC since we are not doing BINGO. We may need to talk about the prize stash at the next meeting.

    I don't land until 9:30am and have to work at 5pm at my 2nd job, so sadly I probably won't be attending. Sorry, I had really hoped to make it this year!!

    Hey everyone, long time no post... and/or see. I'm able to help out. I'm having issues accessing the google docs to add my name. I was planning to come help with setup at 7:00am, and stay until at least noon.

    I have no preference for where/what I'm assigned. I'm just glad to help wherever I'm needed.

    Where does one find the volunteer form?

    If you're looking for the one Jawa Jaka mentioned, it's the background check one, and I think you might've done that already.
