    Well, I knew the Party City event would get some atteention. The owner of my store had passed the word out to the Jewish Center members,that he is a part of, and told them to come see us that night and they did. They liked it so much that they asked him to ask me if I could get something together for Sunday Nov. 19th @ 1:00 pm.
    I told her I'd post it and see if any would be interested. This is a good opportunity as well because they do a TON of events there. Plus about 3/4 of the Mandarin area is of the Jewish faith and could possibly mean more exposure.
    I will find out more about it as far as how long it will last and what they want, but it seems like they are very adamant about us being there.
    They want to promote it as quick as possible because if I promoted us for only1 1/2 weeks at Party City and got the turn out we had, they want to do it a bit more in advance to get more attention.
    Let me know.

    Hmmm, does it have to be 1pm or can they make it 1:30 or 2 for us church people???
    If it must be 1:00 we will still come, but we will have to go to church in town so we don't have that hour drive afterwards.

    Great job at scoring us another event. YAY Vader!

    I can find out for sure about the time. I think the whole thing starts at that time, but I just found out about it yesterday by my boss's wife. I will find out more details this weekend.

    Ok, here's the poop on the 19th. If you thought Party City stuff was cool check this out...
    1. They are going to have over 50 vendors there strutting thier wares.
    2. Jax4kids.com is advertising our appearance 2 weeks in advance of the event. They get over 51,000 hits on their website A DAY. I talked to someone directly involved with them.
    3. Folio Weekly is going to advertise our appearance a week before the event. We all know how big they are.
    4. The Florida Times Union is putting us in the River Bend Review, which is an insert for the Mandarin area the Saturday before the event.
    5. They are putting us by a booth for Photo Max, who does all the video/photos scrapbooks for special events like weddings, barmitzvahs, and such. Theyll probably take pictures for those attending if they want thier services, so we might be doing more picture ops there.

    They are advertising us to be there at 12:30pm on the 19th. I'll have the actual address for you soon. So the question is....
    who is coming?

    Luis man, sorry to hear about that. I have one as well if you need any advice... I've been through the surgury and got the worst possible outcome, he couldn't fix it. It's why I haven't gotten to do those wonderful backflips, but there are things you can do to rehab and spring back when it starts to heal.

    Terry, I understand man. Have fun over the holidays.

    ok, the address for the Jacksonville Jewish Center is 3662 Crown Point Road.
    If you come from 295 South (coming from Orange Park area) you'll go over the Buckman Bridge and take the San Jose blvd exit and turn left onto San Jose. Crown Point Road is at the Blockbuster on the right. Go down that road, not very far, and it's on the right hand side with a pretty big sign on thier entrance wall.
    If yuo come 295 north (heading towards Orange Park) you'll take the first San Jose blvd exit and follow the directions above once on San Jose.
    We are slated to be there at 12:30 start time, so I would try to be there between 11:30 and 12pm to find me and get situated/dressed.
    It runs till 3:30 but they don't expect us to be there past 2:30.

    MAGNIFICENT-SITH - Do we have a head count yet?

    Ani and I will be there after church and it is an hour drive (we'll have to go to church in costume). It'll likely be 1 or 1:30
