    One word for Monday night...

    AWESOME!

    I had a wonderful time at Pizza Hut and TRU. We met several FanForce members face-to-face for the first time, as well as a few new members. Thanks to everyone that showed up! And for those of you that weren't able to attend, we look forward to seeing you at a Tulsa FanForce meeting in the near future.

    Now, on to our next big event. Thursday night, April 25th, 2002, is Star Wars Night at Tulsa Drillers Stadium. Working in conjunction with the 501st Stormtrooper Legion, our own Mike will be pitching the first ball of the game as Darth Vader!

    I just spoke with Seth at Driller Stadium, and here are the specifics:

    All Troopers and immediate family will have thier tickets "comped" in exchange for thier presence at the game. All others, including Tulsa FanForce members, their family and friends, etc... will be able to purchase discount tickets under the group rate ($4.50 vice $6.00). In order to do this, I must have definate numbers from EVERYBODY concerning how many tickets they will need to purchase. The tickets will all be together in the Reserve Seat section, with ticket prices at $4.50 per seat. Bring your money to our designated meeting place at the stadium tomorrow night (tbd later this evening. Watch your emails!), and we will all pay for the tickets at the same time.

    501st Legion Members

    All troopers need to be present at the stadium as close to 5:30 as possible. If you are coming from out of town (For which we are eternally grateful) and expect to be a little later than that, please let me know. Just give me your cellphone number so I can call you if you get stuck in traffic or something. Seth has the Mascot room set up for us to suit up in. We will be escorting Lord Vader out to the pitcher's mound with the new and improved Imperial March from the EP II soundtrack blaring over the stadium's loudspeakers. We will then escort Lord Vader off the field and commence to patrolling the area and visiting with spectators, enter the costume contest, etc...
    More specific info concerning meeting place, where to pick up tickets, and who to ask for will be given tonight via email.

    Tulsa FanForce members

    As mentioned earlier, we will be purchasing discounted reserve seat tickets ($4.50 vice $6.00). This rate is for you, your family, and friends. I just need to know how many people you are bringing so I can have the right number of tickets available at the Will Call desk. For those of you volunteering to serve as "Seeing-eye Ninjas" for the troopers, we need to have you there as close to 5:30 pm as possible. If you cannot make it there by that time, that's OK. Let me know when you can make it there. If possible, I'd like to have 1 FanForce member for every 1 or 2 troopers. It helps, and is greatly appreciated. Some people always get stupid at these types of things and like to try to knock VERY EXPENSIVE helmets off the heads of stormtroopers. We just need folks to run interference and be our eyes and ears. As Tag and Bink stated in "Tak ang Bink are Dead", "These helmets are awfully difficult to see out of." More specific information will be given tonight via email.

    Bottom line, I look forward to seeing any and all of you that are able to make it out to the game tomorrow night. This is our first Tulsa FanForce/501st Legion joint mission, and it's already looking to be a tremendous success!

    Remember,

    I need a firm number from EVERYBODY (Troopers and FanForce) on how many tickets they need or want for tomorrow night by THIS AFTERNOON (3:45 pm). More tickets can always be added tomorrow, but please don't make a call for X amount of tickets and only show up with half of that number of people.

    Tickets are reserved seating, $4.50

    Troopers and immediate family members/girlfriend/boyfriend/partner, etc.. get in for free. I need a definate number on these as well by THIS AFTERNOON (3:45 pm).

    Meeting place TBD and announced this evening via email, or feel free to call me at 918-343-2940 tonight.

    Look for more info this ev
