    KEWL!!! [face_dancing]

    I think we're trying to spark up a thread on Meetup.com to get some people to go. How about an end-of-year roadtrip down to Portland to check it out? Mid-December or so?

    What are you guys considering?

    Mid-December would be hard since its the peak of retail shopping. Unless I know pretty quick so I can ask for the day off in advance.

    I can't request time off November or December. Plus, I doubt I'd get a weekend day off. Retail holiday season is tough.

    I'll try to find out when the Oregon FF is going and maybe we can adjust our schedules to fit their trip. :)
    Would Mid-Week be easier to plan for? It would be much more likely I would have a weekday off then the weekends.

    This is going to be great !! We are very excited. Some of us who are in the 501st or Rebel Legion will be in costume, as OMSI volunteers.

    The Oregon FF is looking into getting a group rate, if they have them. This is a very popular show, OMSI is recommending getting tickets in advance, or you will have to stand in line for quite a while. They are going to have a tent out in front for the line (can hold about 200 people). If you alread have tickets you can get into the faster line. Each ticket is only good for a two hour window, so you can't stay there all day. But it's still worth a visit.

    Thanks for the info! Just keep us informed so we can plan accordingly, please. Some members need know pretty far in advance for days to be requested off.

    There are already several Oregon members who whould like to attend the OMSI Exhibit with your group. Is ther any particular days you are thinking about? By the way, OMSI is not allowing anyone in costume into the exhibit. Only OMSI volunteers from the 501st or the Rebel Legion can be in costume:eek: . FYI on that one........Yes, it was hard for me to believe also.

    Awww... well I don't think anyone was planning on attending in costume anyways so it should be okay.

    From the sound of it, a week day would be best. I can't speak for everyone, but as long as I have enough time to ask for time off, any day should be okay. :)
    December and later part of November will be hard to get off though.

    Week day? We assumed that you guys would be comming down on a week end.

    Right now we are talking about getting a group together on the 22nd (i think). If you want to come down on the 14th, we may also be able to get some people together. Keep us informed.

    I have been asked to be on an R2 Building panel at the OMSI on the 14th.

    So I will be going that day. Anybody want to ride along? I will likely be there all day.

    I'll be working as a costumed volunteer all weekend 14th and 15th.

    had my vol. orientation today. WE even got to SEE the exhibit....we could only stand just inside the door as it is a construction zone. Couldn't take any photos there but here are a couple:

    Opening Weekend is going to be a blast. They are giving us a prime area to have our info table. We also just get to walk around the exhibit in costume for the visitors to enjoy!

    It looks like the 14th would be hard for me... but if a few of us want to go the 22nd, I don't see why we can't go in two groups. :)
