    Ok, I'm usurping some of Cat's authory and starting some threads for events coming up (just kidding Cat)! But it's just easier for questions and stuff. Here if the thread for the upcoming food drive at Game Stop. Cat has set the date. Ill be there, I can get the day off. When was it again Cat?

    no..they think launch day is a bit too much to handle for activities along with the food bank drive..

    okay.. the food bank is supplying us with posters to put up and the boxes to put out for collections.. food accepted is anything that is non perishable.. this includes canned and boxed and some jars as well.. I'll just need some strong folks to help load the boxes onto the bed of the truck.. then the foodbank will make a pickup at the house on monday morning between 8am -10am.

    great to know they supply us with the boxes .. I will go and pick them up this week.

    Ill talk to the Kinko's guys tomorrow to see how fast they can get a banner to us, but if they cant get it tous before the food drive, Ill make one up, bigger than the old one as a back up.


    Cat, can yo contact your moles at the TV stations, the are still covering food drives etc, and this would definetly interest them, and remind them how they covered the Katrina drive!

    yes.. I can contact all them.. but don't get hopes up for the tv stations.. this is not as big of news to them as doing the Hurricane Katrina Fundraiser.

    I already sent out messages to radio.. just hoping to hear back.

    Don't they open at 10:00 am? Will we be able to get in early to "suit up"?

    PS.... Does Jake want me to bring a FX saber? I PROMISE I'll remember it this time if he does.

    The game's the same, only the name has changed.

    Guess I'd better finish sewing up my wookiee suit and get rid of all those safety pins!

    OK, I took off time for my birthday and I'm just getting caught up on this.

    Saturday at 10am?

    OK, I'll see what I can do. I just talked to the Sith Cheerleader and she'll do it. ;) I think I might try to put the Sith Symbol on it in fact. ;)

    Just a quick "heads up" to people living on the fringes of Met Tucson... Saturday (food drive day) is also the car traffic tie-up mess known as El Tour de Tucson. Bicyclists will be riding all over the outer roads at various times, so plan your driving routes accordingly.

    Not that there's anything wrong with riding a bike...
