Hey Everyone, Now that Dragoncon is over the next really big thing coming our way is halloween. For those you you who don't know Friday October 31st, 2003 there will be a HUGE halloween parade in the village. This is something that you do not want to miss out on. Here are all the details for the parade. http://www.halloween-nyc.com/join.html Right now I envison meeting everyone in costume on 6th ave between spring and broome starting at 6:30. Everyone NEEDS to be there by 7:30 at the LATEST. Dion is in the process of planning a group dinner at Planet Hollywood for those intrested parties. If anyone wants to get a hotel I would recommend the best western we stayed at last year. http://www.bestwestern.com/prop_33105 I am pretty sure this is where we stayed last year....rates are 200 beans and up for one night. The price is reasonable (for NYC) but you might want to check availability as soon as possible. Things fill up fast. If anyone find a better hotel please let me know. After the parade all members are free to to whatever night spot appeals to them. -Rich Empire City Garrison ------------- I just have one thing to add. I will be staying at Zip's in Jersey City, not at a hotel. If you'd like to stay at Zip's too, let me know so I can give him a count. You'll need a sleeping bag, pillow and a set of towels and your costumes. Remember the next day is Chiller Con about 10 min from where Zip lives. We plan to go for the day and party into the night. Sunday is the marathon and Leon the Brit is running it in full trooper armor.
