    London Rogues has been invited to participate with Children's Library (Galleria Mall) in a special Star Wars program this summer. It will be similar to a Harry Potter program they held last year, in which children were given a series of tasks to perform at various stations around the library - like build a craft, complete a trivia quiz, etc. Once they completed them all, they were allowed to graduate from Hogwarts. In this Star Wars version, they will graduate as a Jedi Knight.

    My friend, Tracy, at Children's will be organizing the program with us. Our job at the program would be to oversee each of the various activity stations. And I'm thinking each activity should be tailored to our costumes. There will also be posing for photos with the kids when they graduate. I'm sure it will a lot of fun for everyone. The program will probably be a couple hours. The library may also do a showing of one of the movies that day too, which we can participate in at our choice.

    This is all still in the planning stages, but it needs to be finalized by May 1st, which is when the library's summer schedule is printed. This will be an afternoon program. Tracy is thinking the week of July 19, on either the Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. Does anyone have a preference? And feel free to suggest any ideas for the program you may have.

    This could be a lot of fun. I'm thinking of things like the Ewok village as powers of observation. We could use a buildable lightsaber as every jedi needs to be able to build one.

    more like adding a new job. the old one is based on %of the company and for pay and who'd give up a job that pay $20-50 an hour. It's just that when it starts getting down to less then 10 hours a week I can't pay the bills.

    I still don't know what my schedule will be then. If I'm still doing internet support, then I have Monday off. If I get switched back to billing (I really hope not) then I have Tuesday Wednesday off. I'm trying to get that day off anyway though.

    Great. I'll be there, and Chris Lay will be there too.

    If anyone has any suggestions for activities, let me know and I'll pass on to Tracy.

    Yeah that does suck. Well if you can make it, that's great. If not, I'm sure we can manage. It looks like Rabellaka, Chris L, Christine M, and myself will be there, plus the library staff. If anyone has any extra Jedi robes, there are a couple library staff members who could use them for the program.

    Tracy is putting together the list of activities. I'll let you know once it's finalized. It looks like the kids will be getting a report card which they will take to each of the "stations." As they complete an activity, their report card is stamped. Once they complete all of the activities, they get to graduate as a Jedi Knight.

    The program starts at 2 PM. We can be there at 1 PM to change. There will be space provided.

    I have been asked to come as a bad guy, so I'm going to don my Darth Maul costume. Lord_Robert, can I borrow your Maul double saber?

    Rabellaka, my friend Tracy has asked me to ask if you would be willing to loan out your Yoda backpack for the kids to wear during the obstacle course?She has also asked if shecan borrow the Wookiee Sniper Shoot bowcaster and darts.

    I will be returning to London on Monday or Tuesday, so I won't be able to pick up any of these things from the Garrison. Rabellaka, will you be able to? We need the Skip-its too.

    I have plenty of extra robes. Also, Yoda was stolen during the picnic at Springbank, and I haven't replaced him yet. I could bring Chewbacca instead, I don't want Artoo to get dirty, he's white.

    I'll let Tracy know about the backpack. I'm sure she can come up with an alternative - but if you would like to bring Chewie, that would be great!

    It looks like I'll be playing Maul on Wednesday. I'll bring Andrew's Jedi robe with me, plus my extra one too. Together with Rabellaka's robes, we'll have all the staff decked out well for the program!

    The Ewoks are in critical care, having been attacked by Womp Rats. Or maybe it was just mice. And moisture. Either way, they are not available for Wednesday.

    Rabellaka, you will be running the Trivia activity. They will have sheets made up with the questions.
