    I don't know. They tape that parade and someone I know might see me.... However, if we need a float, I'll help out w/ that.

    ok, here is the update on this:

    The parade is Saturday March 15th. We have to meet downtown at 10 a.m. The parade kicks off at noon. After the parade there are craft booths at the Galleries of Syracuse with Face painting and Music. I imagine the awards ceromony is there as well.

    If anyone is interested in this please post. The sign ups deadline is Feb 15th. We have an option to have a float (if everyone wants to build one) or just march. Let me know so we can get things rolling. I have asked for the Fanforce Banner that weekend so hopefully we will have that as well.

    I hope everyone can participate. Should be alot of fun. I have participated in this parade years before and have always had a great time :)
    Please post any ideas you may have for this as well :)

    I'm definitly coming, and I'll be in the Sith costume you guys helped me cut out last week. I gotta sew it this week, I tried last week but my sister wouldn't ask her Home Economics teacher :S I'll harp on her Monday and should be able to get it done the rest of the week.

    I'll be asking Nate and Jeff, but I'm pretty sure they're coming.

    So where are we meeting? Also, I'll need to know the when/where of other things.

    update..........
    We are towards the end of the parade route. We will need to line up at the parade route by 1:30 pm no later. we step off at 2.

    we need a head count on who is coming asap, this way we can arrange meeting place etc.
    We have 7 arriving from canada and 3 from buffalo. We will also have the Fanforce banner to carry. We only have 3 confirmed from our group going I would like to see a few more people .......please post here if you can go.

    There will be a reception afterwards. Please pm me for directions to the party.

    So... where do we meet? And when do you want us to arrive (we have to be there by 1:30, but am I correct in assuming you want us to meet a bit beforehand?)?

    Nate has to work at 3PM on Saturday, so he won't be able to make it. Jeff says he's coming; if you need, him to I'll see to it that he posts saying so.

    Ooookay, bad news from my side of the table. Jeff is going to see his brother; good for him, they haven't seen each other for a while. But that leaves me as the only representative of Project Apocalypse coming (yes, I am still coming, barring acts of God or parents [listed in descending order of likeliness]). Our costumes are finished, and I must say I'm pleased with how they turned out. Thanks for the tips and help on them, everybody!

    Ah, where are we all meeting -before- we have to line up? I don't thinking saying, "Oh, just meet us down there" is such a hot idea....

    I PM'd her about that (I was terribly confused). She said she'd post tonight with directions and miscellaneous intinerary stuff.

    Are you guys doing anything special to your costumes for the parade? Any extra green anywhere?

    Wow. That was great. I just got home, and I must say that that was one of the most fun things I've done. It was great meeting the people from Miagara Falls and Buffalo (the scout costume was great!) Probably my favorite thig was when me and Kevin, one of the "Crazy Canucks" (as they labeled themselves), started doing an Irish jig ;) Seeing Jake (or was it Jay?) get... well, I'll let him tell (I've seen him here a few times).

    *Rushes off to YJN boards for pie conversations ;))

    I was going to ask about that. If you want, I can send in a blank tape for my own copy.

    Unfortunately, we didn't get a single word mentioned in the paper, and we weren't on TV. The guy in duct tape drag got more publicity than we did... and I quote: "An antiwar message was subdued." Start of the second paragraph from the bottom on page B-7 of the Post-Standard, for those of us in Syracuse that get that paper.
