    well Kiddies its that time of year again!

    I receieved the info in the mail..... of course Im posting this from work and I havent the details in front of me.
    (what a suprise)

    However I wanted to get this posted and let everyone know if they want to participate in this the entry deadline is Feb 17th. I would imagine the parade will be on the usual saturday most likely the 18th... dont mark that date yet.....I will update this post when I get home.

    I would like to get this in early so we can try to have a decent spot this year. Not to mention I have to reserve the firehouse again.

    Is this somehting we are interested in doing as a group this year? We have done one every year as tradition I would hate to see us not, however I can understand the increasing demands on everyones schedules as of late.

    Please post if you would like to do this or not. I would actually like to have a banner made this year so we look ok too. :)

    Please post your thoughts ......

    Thanks!

    Hey guys, Im hoping to get a response in here soon for two reasons:

    The deadline to submit the app is fast approaching
    and I noticed Nicky already posted the event in Rochester. Im not sure we even have an event for anyone to come to ;) LOL
    So before we get the word out to other chapters to attend we may want to see if we even have the numbers to host it. Its tough this year since everyone has pretty much moved out of the area. I know my time is restricted and with the FF awards coming up my plate is full.

    I will not have time to plan anything elaborate without help. So even if you are not planning on attending please just post a no can do por favor ;)

    I think we may have to bow out of this one if u ask me... :(

    I really hate to back out of it, however I cannot plan the parade and party myself nor fund it alone. I understand when everyone is too busy. Depending on how many people actually want to come from other areas we may just carry the FF banner and have an informal dinner at my place LOL

    we will just have to wait and see.

    I'm really sorry about that! I've completely forgotten about this... I feel horrible!

    And I won't be able to make it, either... date for pickup shots for the film I'm working on. Shame, it's been real fun in the past years!

    I'll check and let you know. If Dad isn't included in arjuna's film thing we might be attending. But if dad's filming with arjuna that means I'm not attending.

    I think that at this point, filming is becoming a really constant thing, while the parades aren't, so I'm sure that Dad will want to do the parade. I'll try to convince him to go to the parade; membership seems to be slacking off recently *whistles innocently and grinds toe into ground*, so every little bit helps.

    Unfortunatly since we figured that this wasn't happening, we went ahead & made other plans for that day, We'll be attending a SCA event in Buffalo called The Ice Dragon.

    But I hope you all will consider coming to participate in our Lilac Festival Parade, It looks like we are going to have a great turn out from Buffalo & maybe Canada.

    We (along with quite a few other 501st members in the area) also have other plans for that day because we assumed this was cancelled. I echo the invite to the Lilac Festival Parade and picnic that'll be in Rochester May 13th.

    This event is cancelled. I cancelled it due to the lack of interest and no one posting before the entry deadline ;) and the fact that 75% of anyone would were thinking of coming are attending the 501st meeting that day ;)

    LOL

    If any of the SCJ members still want to march since we wont really be having any outside help that day... please let me know we may be allowed to walk informally in the parade and harrass people ;) I mean er uh.....pass out candy ... um, yeh thats it... [face_whistling]

    Since it would be a small handful of us we wont book the firestation this year we can all come to my house afterwards ;) (if there is still a SCJ interest) I see only 5 of us that would march ......

    Beezel, you are always most welcome to come hang out with us this year however, it looks like we wont have but 4 or 5 marching? If anyone even wants to brave it with that little amount.

    At this point my honest recommendation would be to not march. As much as it breaks my heart to cancel this year, we did miss the registration deadline and we would only be added at this point to the very end of the parade.

    I say if anyone wantst o get together that day and wreack some havoc in the local pubs that day, well, Im all for it ;)
