    I'll be in the parade, probably one of the few Jedi. Are any other Rebels attending?

    I was going to sign up for the parade this weekend, but March through early May was just crazy for me and I didn't get the fixes to my costume done that I needed.

    Have fun, all. :)

    Hey all you Star Wars Weekend Warriors!!

    As most of you know, I am reporting this event to a couple of SW fan sites. Looking for folks that would like to do a little "interview" and answer some questions about SWW, to be possibly featured in my reports. Name & age are optional, and interview can be done via email. Your time would be appreciated.

    Anyone interested, give me a shout!
