    Brent Ashcroft and Myself met with Terry Ficorelli and Chrissy Pearce of The Muskegon Fury hockey team.

    http://www.furyhockey.com/

    Brent sent them links to pics and YouTube videos of our Whitecaps and Griffons events from the past. Chrissy actually spent the time to look at all of it! I brought the Whitecaps jersey and photos from the Whitecaps event.

    Shortly after our lunch meeting, I got word from Chrissy that we have the go ahead for Star Wars night on March 15th, 2008!

    I know this is a way's out, but you can never have enough advance notice!

    Chrissy and Terry are very excited about having the 501st come out and do our thing!

    They will also look to see which local Muskegon charity we can work for.

    A bar/restaurant is right next door for an after party (these details are important... ) and a hotel is one block away. They will see if they can get us comped or heavily discounted rooms for those of us who have to travel.

    Many ideas where passed back and forth. I'm glad the planning is starting now, so they and us can be prepared for another awesome event.

    Humper... they WANT the skating stormtrooper and said, they'd arm you with the T-shirt cannon!

    All in all, an awesome first meeting with The Muskegon Fury!

    Updates will come, as they come...

    If Brent has anything to add, I am sure he will post later!
