    I have been meaning to post this here, but I have been waiting on the details. We are working on the details so they will be forth coming. Thanks goes out to Blasty Trooper for the information blow because he received the e-mail for the event.

    What: 2nd annual Haunted Halloween Party at the Kalamazoo Air Zoo. Thanks to the success of our appearance at the Boy Scout event, the Air Zoo has invited the 501st to be part of their Halloween Party.

    You better keep your eye on this event because Count Dooku needs to make an appearance. Sounds like I'm threating you doesn't it.[face_laugh]

    You dare threaten a Sith Lord?? :eek: [face_shame_on_you]
    Well coming from you.. yeah.. sounds about right... lol... :D [face_beatup]

    Only thing that will keep me from this will be when they do the sunfield halloween. I pass out candy as a friendly sith lord to the kids, as well as take my son around to trick or treat. ;)

    Edit:
    When: October 27, 2007
    9am-5pm

    The whole time, or do we just do 3-4 hours of it sometime?

    Yeah, 3 or 4 hours is the game plan. I haven't updated yet anywhere else so I won't give you the time line yet. Still working things out with the event planner.

    I'll be there for sure! I'm working on a new costume to wear. Hopefully it'll be done by then. If not I'll probably wear my good ol' tusken.

    My wife and son are going as well. He's going to be ESB Han Solo........I think.

    Anyway, hope to see all of you there.

    I'll say if you need a support person there, I'll be willing to go along. (Even if my suspicions are correct for plans on that day, I won't be needed elsewhere until later that evening, if such plans did arise. :D)

    No, really it was great fun. Hopefully they will have us back next year.

    Here are some pictures but not many.

    You can see the back of my head, in one of them, pre-haircut! [face_laugh]

    (Yeah, I got the mop cleaned up some, today.)

    But I'd hope to take part in it, again, maybe even as part of the "Trooping".

    (Of which I didn't thank you for the link, yet, Stiger. So let it be publicly thanked!)

    Stiger... don't make me feel bad for not going... :( ... ;)
    Nice pics... man I need to do the next one!!!! :D

    Hey, I'm making up for it today...
    I'm hoping me dressed as my usual Count Dooku, will give me the edge to win an extra 1/2 day off work.
    Later I'm picking my son and wife to go to sunfield to pass out candy...

    StarscreamPrime, I hope you do come out again, I want to meet all the people I can on the boards. :D

    So, Dooku DID have another apprentice while serving under Sidious. Clever man, he was...

    [face_laugh]

    Seriously, that is an adorable picture.

    And actually, I DID get one "Star Wars" trick or treater in my neighborhood. Apparently Jedi "Younglings" can't resist the lure of the candy side of the Force. ;)

    LOL.. thanks guys... it was lots of fun.
    I also saw a princes leia and a storm trooper this year. Last year there were a couple jedi, so it seems sunfield still has SW costumers. :D

    Yes... Dooku has another aprentice, and this one is very strong willed!!! ;)

    SO... who was the little storm trooper that was at the last event?

    Also... When is the next event... I'm ready. :D
