    Hey Folks,

    I posted this awhile back, but I just wanted to post a reminder for those considering joining the Aidswalk.

    So far there are 15 people who signed up. Most of which are going in costume (myself included).

    I'd like to take this time to extend an invite to any and all garrisons/rebel legion/fanforce, neighboring or otherwise, who would like to join us for this year's walk! We'll all be trooping for a great cause! To find a cure! Last year we were a pretty big hit, and we plan to come back in force this year!

    So if you can lend a hand (or feet) please let me know. This would be a great event for all the local garrisons to walk together!

    Sign-In for the Walk opens at 8:30 AM at the Central Park entrance on 59th Street and 5th Avenue. Nobody is required to do the entire walk, unless you're one of those crazy troopers that want to! lol

    So if you'd like to join your fellow trooper and sign up, please do the following. Go to www.aidswalk.net, click on AIDSWALK NY, click on REGISTER (on the left hand side), click JOIN A TEAM, and then select NORTHEAST REMNANT from the dropdown list.

    We have proud members from the 501st, the Rebel Legion and Fanforce as a part of this team. Anyone can join, anyone can particpate.

    Can't walk the walk? No problem, you can donate if you'd like.

    Can't donate? No problem, you can walk if you'd like.

    Don't want to wear your costume, no problem, walk with us out of costume!

    The level of your participation is completely up to you! :)

    If anyone has any questions, please don't hesistate to contact me! I'd love to make this a big event for everyone!

    Hey Folks,

    To those that are signed up for the aidswalk, it's coming up rather quickly! Already we're through the month of April, and the walk is on May 16th.

    The AIDS Walk takes place on Sunday, May 16, 2004. Sign-In for the Walk opens at 8:30 AM at the Central Park entrance on 59th Street and 5th Avenue. The Opening Ceremony for the Walk begins at 9:15 AM
    in Sheep Meadow, located at 67th Street and Central Park West (across the street from Tavern on the Green).

    Of course this is optional, but we are doing the event in costume. Here's a couple of tips to get throught the day. WEAR COMFORTABLE SNEAKERS. Reguardless of what costume you wear, if you like your
    feet not hurting, wear some walking sneakers. Granted, it wont match your trooper armor, officer, Royal guard costume, but your feet will thank you for it. This is a long walk from what I understand, and it'll feel even longer for us in costume, so we're
    all going to take it easy :) Keep in mind, by signing up for the walk, you are not obligated to walk the entire walk. If you can't do it, don't push yourself :)

    Secondly, if you feel you need to rest, SPEAK UP and tell us. We are going to do this walk as a group. So if someone needs to stop and take a break we will all stick with you. This isn't a race to the finish line so we can take as long as we want :)

    Lastly, we will have a couple of non costumed people in our group, so if you need water, they can probably get it for you. Don't hesitate to ask! :)

    The Northeast Remnant team is proud to have 17 members from the Northeast Rememnant, the Empire City Garrison, The Rebel Legion, and three different Fanforce chapters joining us in this walk. As
    always, an open invite goes out to all our neighboring garrisons to join us. If you'd like to join, please contact me at MerlynNY@aol.com and I'll help you sign up!

    If anyone has any questions about the aidwalk, please feel free to drop me an email! :)
