    Just got a call from Matt from the Rochester Insider in response to the press release I sent out...

    He wanted to confirm the location (Blue Cross Arena) and times - I told him the walk kicked off at 10am, but that registration and opening ceremonies were taking place between 8am-10am.

    He said they'll be sending a photographer out to cover the walk! So, we'll have to be on the lookout for them! :D

    Hey gang-

    I JUST checked with my boss here at Nathaniel's Pub, and he has given our group the "Okay" to park in the Nathaniel's lot Saturday morning for the Walk. It's a quick 1/4 to 1/2 mile trot under the bridge and down the street to the front of the Arena. See you there!!

    I'll bring your Rebellion t-shirt with me to the walk.

    Do the walkers want to have signs on their chests or backs? I was picturing a 8x10 sign with The Hearts of Star Wars, a big heart, the Rebellion logo, the 501st logo and maybe a big number on there like a running participant would have. Thoughts?

    I just thought in lieu of hanging our banner or handing out fliers like we usually do at events - these signs would do the same job and fit in better with the theme of the event.

    [face_laugh] OK!

    If other walkers want them as well - do they want TK-IDs, screenname, favorite number or something else on them?

    I'm hoping to get them all printed by tomorrow afternoon, so please get back to me (you can just send me a PM) before then.

    Can you fit wookiee cookiee on there? If not, 1138 would be cool too.

    Are we meeting at Nathaniel's parking lot at a certain time? They seem to have a lot of things going on inside that start at 8. Do we have to register and turn the money in as a group? I have some offline donations to turn in.

    Thanks!

    Good Question W.C...... I wasa thinking 9ish but I don't know. I didn't persue any donations so I'm gonna donat $10 to our team.

    On another note Heidi here at wegmans ( the one who gave us the heads up on the Wegmans Promotions lastyear & the more recent BPO heads up) is walking also but has noone to walk with So I invided her to walk with us. I don't think she has a costume but she sais she'll wear a star wars t shirt ;-) I hope it's ok, I didn't think anyone would mind....... plus she may be a prospective memeber ;-)

    8am is a little early for me, but I'd be willing to try to get there as close to whenever everyone else was getting there as I could.

    I was going to get there at 8:30. I think you can turn in extra money at registration, I think Lisa and I are going to turn in our money at that point too. See you all in the AM

    OK - I'll try to shoot for 8:30am, but it might be closer to 9am that I actually get to BCA. I'll try to remember the walkies though so that we can chat (especially since my cell is being flaky).

    For the "walkers signs"

    TC-4277 - printed
    DZ-2898 - printed
    SL-9658 - printed
    TB-2709 - printed
    Wookiee Cookiee - printed
    T-StarFlyer - printed
    Doc Bev - printed
    Recaf2000 - printed

    DarSolo - pending confirmation
    Lisa M. - wasn't sure if she wanted one

    Since these seem to be taking a really long time to print (and a lot of ink) I've only done 1 for each person so far. If I have more time before tomorrow morning I'll do up another set so that folks could wear one on each side if they want.
