    I'd suggest packing brollies & gumboots - it has been pelting down with rain out north this morning, would suggest you are all gonna get mighty wet today ......

    Got my gumboots :)

    The radar is showing pretty patchy rain so I hope we can dodge it.

    .. and dodge it we did :D

    The crowds were there despite the weather. The people need to see their Star Wars characters.

    My arm is sore from so much waving - but its a good kind of sore :)

    The Heavens held back, for the duration of the Pageant, but did open up about 10 minutes after it!! OMG! Drowned!

    There was a wonderful turn out, and I want to thank everyone who made the effort to come out in the rain and wind to brighten up the day. I saw so many kids screaming and cheering when they saw the Star Wars group! I heard one guy say "OMG Star Wars!" he turned to his lady friend, "Have you ever seen a Star Wars movie?" She shook her head, he said "We are so watching Star Wars this arvo!!" Also heard a lad say "Look dad , There's a stormtrooper, and another on the other side!" His dad turned and said "No mate, that one over there is a Scout Trooper" I leaned out the car window "Well Done Sir, I'm very impressed!" He grinned and laughed. He knew his Star Wars! It was a shame we didnt have music, due to Hunkys broken stereo, but with the marching band in front of us so close, I doubt it would have been heard! I do thank JediMasterSifoDyas for the offer of the use of his car and music for next year. Hope to take him up on the offer. Over all, wet and cold but a great turn out like Darth Meanders said and there were plenty of smiles and laughter.

    A big thank you to everyone, and to Darth Hunky who supplied the car for me to slink about hiding from the cops in! Yes, the law actually stalked the car waiting for the revving and donuts! :p

    A massive thankyou to everyone who came along and braved the weather to be in the pageant today and to the majority for adding a touch of Christmas to their costumes. Another strong SAFF event.

    Now to some particular thankyous ...

    A-D - For organising us rowdy lot leading up to today.

    Hunky - For the use and Christmasfying of the Vadermobile. Most awesome.

    DV - For starting off with the banner during the pageant.

    DLA - For being a banner holder throughout the WHOLE pageant without a hint of someone offering to take over. The wind made it a challenge and you performed magnificantly.

    Looking forward to next year's already! :D

    Got a letter from the Norwood City Council today...will transcribe it to you lot. ;)

    2009 Norwood Christmas Pageant

    I would like to thank you and your group for braving the wind and the rain and participating in the 2009 Norwood Christmas Pageant. We don't think the weather dampened anyone's spirits with a great turn out of over 10,000 and the high number of participants, once again!

    I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you on behalf of the Council for your participation in the Pageant. We relay on community groups, businesses and individuals to make the Pageant a great success and this year was a true reflection of that!! Celebrating Christmas with the community is a tradition we are proud of to continue and are glad to have your support.

    If you have any comments or suggestions for next year's Pageant 1 would love to hear from you as we are always striving to make the Pageant better.

    I hope that you enjoyed taking part in the Pageant as much as we enjoyed putting it on, and hope to see you back next year!

    Best wishes for a safe and happy Christmas season.

    Yours Sincerely,






    Adriana Palumbo
    Events Coordinator



    So, all good! Does anyone have any suggestions they want to submit?
