    I'm still waiting to hear back, but a few of the 501st that I know up in Canada have been chosen.

    I didn't know you had applied. Let us know. You know what that means if you get picked.... ROAD TRIP! The IEFF would have to spend the night on the side walks of Pasadena on New Year's Eve!

    Those sidewalks can get quite chilly on NYE, so we've reserved a room not too far away. Now we need to work on acquiring some bleacher seats for the parade.
