    I should have my Japanesish Jedi outfit done by then.

    Okay okay, I admit it: my mother has the sewing machine and the skills; I don't.

    Is this an all-day event, or just the morning, or what? I'm expecting that I'll have to work, but the office is pretty close to the Stampede grounds.

    If someone is able to give me a lift in, I can come as well.

    Is there going to be a charge for admission?

    Peter. There is no charge to get in as we are there before the park opens. I should might be able to get you in the morning. Are you going to ESB on Saturday night. we can talk then. I'll know for sure if I can or not.

    Where are people parking (I'm talking to those that are driving, not riding) this year? Last year I parked at the north end and had about a 10 minutes walk (run). Was that still roughly the closest, since most of the grounds are closed off for the Stampede?
