Lately I've been thinking and talking to others about new stuff we might be able to do with the FanForce. One idea is to start doing some parades or charity walks in the area. A lot of other FanForces do them successfully and have a great time with them. I've been looking into parades lately since it is almost that season again. The Mardi Gras parade is nice, but horrible expensive for a tiny little spot, not even a float, they get up in the thousands of dollars. Another option in the very near future is the St. Patrick Day's parade. It seems to be free from what I can tell, and if nothing else it has to be cheaper. [link=http://irishparade.org/2005/index.html]Link to site[/link]. Thing is applications have to be in by 1/31/06 for this year's parade. So we'd have to decide in a hurry if we want to do it or not. Then figure out what we're going to do, SW something of course, but what sort of SW? Float, walking, etc. The way I was thinking was we'd do it like we did the RotS event, costume if you have one or can borrow one, if not then a SW shirt or StL FF shirt. That way no one is excluded if s/he doesn't have a costume. We'd also have to think about creating or buying a banner with our info on it. Thoughts?
