    I've been making some calls over this past week and will be doing some picture scouting next week into what may be another Star Wars Night at the Glen Avon library in Riverside.
    Website ---> http://www.rivlib.com/RCLS/branches/glenavon.shtml

    I've been in touch with the library and Michael with the 501st. He's going to post the details on their boards and see about who can go. The library has sent him the details of what they want as well. This will take place on the first Saturday of November (the 7th)

    As I get more info / pics, I will let all of you know. For those of you who made it to the one we did in Rancho in May, this one will be very similar to that. I'll be going to the library to speak with them next week and post from there.

    This would give us more exposure and something to do in November. I'm very excited at the opportunity this gives us. From what advertising they're expecting to do, we should get a nice crowd indeed!

    IEFF ROCKS!!![face_dancing] =D=

    So long as we're not arranging the costumers, it sounds like great fun!

    Somebody (Mikey) from the 501st is organizing that group, not us. I just makes it easier when one of them is doing it.

    Spoke with Tracie (library manager) over at the Glen Avon library today. We spoke about how things were going and giving each other updates on we've been doing, more about that later.

    I've done some scouting and I wanted to post some pics of what the place looks like inside and out to give you all a feel of the place. Stay tuned for more updates.:)

    Mikey (501st) has posted the event on their boards and already has several sign-ups! I posted it on the RL boards for him.... it will be interesting to see how those sign-ups go. I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best.

    Not a soul has posted on the RL boards for this event (big shocker :eek: ), however, 5 or 6 501st members already volunteered.

    Sonya and Nicole, would you throw me a bone and go ahead and post on the RL board. At least that way it's not completely empty. Thanks, ladies!

    Okay folks...here's something I saw at Costco we could raffle as one of grand prize raffle items. It's $50 (which our dues would pay for). Looked pretty cool. Your thoughts?

    I've also got 111 Star Wars action figs that I'd be willing to part with, lets say 20 or so of them to help the group raise money to do more stuff. We could do a huge gift basket thingy bingy. Which ones you want to put together? Here's a few pics / descriptions of them.

    [image=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu324/Parkersuperpics/card123029.jpg]
    These are the 18 ones that have the 35MM slide show next to the fig

    These have the 33 hologram pic figs next to the fig

    [image=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu324/Parkersuperpics/card123033.jpg]
    These are the 39 Comm Tech figs from Episode One

    [image=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu324/Parkersuperpics/card123031.jpg]
    Little bit of a mix here. I've got 11 of the pull tab flash back figs, 4 old school comm tech figs, 3 sneek peek figs, 2 Saga figs, and 1 Phantom Menace fig

    Okay, here's what we're gonna do as far as the raffle is concerned. Disregard the Clone Helmet idea (even though it's a good one), but we've got a huge lot of items to raffle.

    I'm donating 25 action figs. We could make huge gift basket thingy. I went to Party City and saw this for only $10. We could put the 25 figs in here...

    [image=http://i660.photobucket.com/albums/uu324/Parkersuperpics/DSC01239.jpg]


    We've got donations from the following folks...

    4 color fantasies comics
    game stop
    game crazy
    glen avon library
    US bank

    I'm working on a few other items to be donated. So between all these folks as well as our huge basket, I think that'll be plenty, so no need to speand the money on the helmet.

    I bought this tonight for our raffle action figure givaway bonanza! It's a little smaller than the black one but it'll work perfect. The red is awesome as it'll match our banner - logo. :)

    Thanks!

    I'm planning on donating my new (with tags) squishy Vader back pack. Do you want the SW books for the raffle, too? Any flyers? I really need something to post in my library and possibly hand out to a few kids/parents I know what info about it.

    GOOD NEWS: Obi-Shawn has confirmed for the event and will gladly read!!!!! YEA!!!! [face_dancing]

    Is there a place for the car/s?

    Sandy, do you think the Falcon will be able to make it to this event? I sure hope so!

    Okay folks, this event is in two weeks! We need to get an idea as to who will be there to help man our table. The event runs from 5 - 8.

    The boards have become rather quite. We really need to get going on this!

    PLEASE POST WHETHER YOU CAN MAKE IT OR NOT.
