    ANNOUNCEMENT!!

    Would everyone make sure they have enough water on board, carry some, and if you have a hood on your costume, put it up, either way SUNSCREEN will be essential. It's gonna be hot guys and I don't want to be dragging any half dead stormies, pilots or jedi down the Parade!!

    OH, and I've seen Top Gun hundreds of times and have memorized all the 'flying' songs from it.....fly rings around you DM :p [face_devil]

    Mrs Meanders and little sister are coming. If they have the option to walk with us then OK. Otherwise they can sit in the crowd.

    I shall hydrate well before and after - what was I thinking :oops: - A Big Black Helmet :D

    Yeah, but make sure you don't over hydrate and then need to 'relieve' in the middle of the pageant! :p

    I should have asked u DM if u needed help with your helmet!! I do recommend u look at putting a fan inside your helmet and also cutting out the grin to get ventilation inside... with our hot weather it helps a lot...

    it's official.....I hate hot weather!!

    I'm gonna die tomorrow!

    Why didn't Georgie baby have his costume designers design something for Jedi to wear in 'warmer' climates? No wonder dear old Obi-Wan didn't move too quickly when he was on Tatooine!!

    Maybe I go with Padme. Cheesecloth breathes much easier.

    Extra layer DM....hmmm half done, but I don't think it will be finished.....I started to rush it and it's a little crooked now....so I will bring what I have done to show you....so you will see it's taking shape.

    Thank you everyone for attending and suffering in the heat for the sake of our Star Wars Fandom. Many people thought Darth Meanders was Vader, so it seems Adelaide needs educating. Thank you to Arctic Fox for his wonderful water pistol weapon, I think the kids loved it. ;) Everyone else, your costumes looked incredible (and hot in most cases), you smiled while melting and I thank you all for your efforts..

    List Of Attended Members

    TK 1571(Stormie)
    Darth Meanders (Tie Pilot)
    Darth Maul Jnr
    Princess Leia Jnr
    Nawara Ven (Jedi Master)
    Arctic Fox (Snow Trooper)
    Kooky Jedi (Jedi Master)
    Motherly Princess (Leia - Cloud City)
    Ewok Baby
    Rebel Pilot Jnr
    Jedi Issac
    Luke Skywalker Jnr
    Slave Leia Jnr
    Black Jedi (Anakin Skywalker)
    Creative Master Kath (Jedi Master)
    Creative Master Steve (Boba Fett)
    Guri (Amidala)



    Just to let you all know Luke is fine, he was heat effected and had first aid attention, (Thanks to Nawara, TK and Fox for getting it). But after ice, water and rest he is fine now.

    Just curious. When I ask an official for First Aid I was told there was none. The First Aid Officer we did find told us that there were only 3 of them on duty today, and they were run off their feet. I'd like to voice our thoughts to the council on todays event.

    A. Was there enough First Aid on a 35 degree day?
    B. Is the Pageant too long, should it be a little shorter for the kids?
    C. Should the groups be clearly separated (did the bikes really need to ride amoungst us?)

    Let me know your thoughts everyone. Oh, and Motherly_Princess, Darth Meanders and Nawara Ven all took pictures (as did I) so I hope to have some great images real soon. ;)

    Once again....thank you. [face_love]

    hot!!! still recovering, even at 9pm at night!! lol


    but well worth it, was fun, and good to meet Kookie and catch up with everyone again

    as for those bikes - something needs to be said about them, A-D...I don't appreciate the comment 'if any of you have half a brain between you' and the downright rudeness of riding in between our group.

    yes, more first aid is needed, 'specially in the hot weather. As it's a volunteer organisation, the Norwood council can't use 'not enough money' as an excuse. I heard someone say that a few in the crowd went down with heat exhaustion too....would be cheaper to put on first aid volunteers than risk the legal implications of someone getting really sick...


    as for you, E-I...big wuss!!! Seems you've gone soft since you took on the planner estimator job, hmmm? :D

    photos!!

    yes, there are some of Guri's party

    :D
