    Greetings Everyone,

    Well, I have yet to hear back from Media Play. I'm hoping that they've just been too busy to get back to me and I'll hear back soon. I wrote a very professional letter addressed to the owner/manager. I told him/her that we didn't want to disrupt any business at the store and we would only show up if it's agreeable with them.

    As we are about a week away, I have started this thread to discuss ALTERNATE potential locations were we can go in costume.

    Anyone have any ideas? ?[face_plain]

    The costume list will be up today or tomorrow.

    Later,

    I guess I'm totally open as to where we go because I don't have a reserved copy or anything. The mall would be fun just because there would be a lot of people there to see us. :cool:

    Greetings Everybody,

    I just got off the phone with the video manager from Media Play. We're in! :D

    Here's the details...

    They would REALLY like us to be there for the midnight release. So we have 2 times to show up in costume for the DVD release. Those who can make it that night should show up at Media Play NO LATER than 10:45pm on Monday, October 15th. We will be given a room where people can change into costume. We will then mingle with store patrons from 11:30pm to 12:30am.

    The next day, the 16th, we will show up in costume again. Everyone will need to arrive by 5:15pm. We will then change again and mingle from 6:00pm-7:00pm.

    After that, I am making arangements to actually watch the Episode I DVD as a group. We MAY also make dinner arrangements.

    Here's a summary....

    Appearance 1
    Show up time: 10:45pm Monday, October 15
    Mingle time: 11:30pm - 12:30am

    Appearance 2
    Show up time: 5:15pm Tuesday, October 16
    Mingle time: 6:00pm - 7:00pm

    Media Play is expecting big crowds during both times. :cool:

    I WILL post the costume list and requirements later this afternoon in this forum on a seperate thread. I need to know for each person who desires to come which costume they want to wear and which appearances that they can make it to(hopefully both).

    Later,

    Wah hooo!!! Excellent!!
    I'll have to debate over which one I'll go to, so I'll post what I decide when you put up the costume list.

    One question: Didn't you at some point mention that the media would be involved? Is that still happening?

    Greetings Everybody,

    I would like to get the media involved. I have some ideas.

    What suggestions do you guys have?

    Mike-
    I've got a few suggestions on media outlets to contact. I'd suggest contacting Eric Snyder at the Daily Herald (Arts and Entertainment editor) and Linda Campbell at the Utah County Journal. You should probably also contact the Orem-Geneva Times and let them know as well. If you need any further assistance, please give me a call. I have relations who work and the Herald and the Times, and have worked previously with the Utah County Journal.

    Good luck!

    The 15th would be best for me, but I can also do the 16th.
