    Well since we decided to only use these boards I am just making the threads we had over there of importance or of interest.

    I will do the paperwork this week. No word on the trailer, should know this week (wed. I think).

    Ron would you be willing to be in charge of getting candy (the club will buy)?

    Like Josh said a couple months ago, we don't want this to be another project we talk up and then put off for so long it never gets done

    The By-Laws clearly state that all members (dues paying and non dues paying) need to pull their weight. This Means Eric, Kasey, Marcus, Katy, Josh, Amma, Jolynn, Ron, Dan, and Josh. EVERYONE!

    I think its clear that whoever was on our committee either has forgotten about it or doesn't care or has no time, so perhaps we should get some other members to commit to working on this.
    I can contribute some time. Eric, if you have heard nothing on the trailer than forget it. We will need to look elsewhere because if we wait too long we aren't going to find one.

    Rule #4

    "NO CANDY or treats of any kind are to be tossed from any parade entriy, if any entry is doing this they will be pulled from the parade! Treats may be handed to spectators."


    This is directly from the application.

    well i talked to my dad he is going to talk with his ex employer about seeing if we can borrow it. I also called Tates rents to rent a 18ft flat bed is 70.00 for a 24 hour period so if we picked up at 1 pm before the parade we would have it till 1:pm on saturday.

    But remember this is before the cost of decorations, and candy.


    Maybe we can get some memebers to Donate as much as 5.00 - 10.00 to get the Trailer. We also might be able to get some CIV figs to help with the cost.


    C3 figs paid for shirts this might help.


    I think we need to plan a couple weekends to be working on the float before the parade so we can have what ever we are doing done. I will bring up more infor at the May meeting.

    well me and Kasey went and Looked at the Trailer that my Dads friend is going to let us borrow it is a flat bed between 10-12 feet long this will be perfect for us he is going to allow us to pick it up a week before the parade so we can make sure it gets all the decorations on it we want.

    I think when we are all done we should give Bruce the owner a Card we can get it at the 1.00 store but just a thank you from all of us.

    I got a hitch which fits my truck, except its too short, so I can't tighten it. I need another 2-inch with a longer screw section. I will return in to Walmart in the next couple days to see if I can get a longer one.

    Got the new hitch! It fits great and will pull up to 3500lbs, so I think we're good! I have greentime at work today, but I'm forcing myself not to take it. Need the $$$

    For those who didn't know, I got in touch with Ken Pierson of the 501st. He looks to be the only trooper left in Boise...which is truly sad. Anyway, after talking with him, he said he'd love to help us out in the parade! So we've got a stormtrooper!
    I've also contacted Barry with the information and asked if he might be able to come down since he's Rebel Legion and has a great X-wing pilot uniform. Who knows, he might bring along some of his friends if he comes. I promised Barry a place to stay and some food, which I'm willing to provide. JOSH- I also mentioned our horror project, and if he does come down we will plan on filming that weekend to use his make-up skills.
    Thanks!

    Have we decided what we're doing for the Bantha or are we waiting to finalize that in June? It might be prudent to do that before some of us leave to California. I think the sooner we get this thing rolling the better. I am e-mailing Josh about the magnets that still haven't been replaced. We need to get those soon!

    Well me met and discussed costs and such tonight and decided that we should set a budget of $60 for the parade. Given we need supplies for the float, candy and other such things, this seemed like a reasonable cost level. We also have $20 coming to us from Josh to replace our magnetic signs, which we'll probably just buy some magnetic strip at Lowes and go the cheap route. Selling figures from CIV will also help cover the costs. We also discussed having a BBQ that night at my place to thank all of those in attendance. If everyone pitched in a couple bucks, the club would be looking at very little cost towards something like this. We will discuss this more at the meeting.
