    Hey everybody!

    The [link=http://www.rosefestival.org/events/starlightparade/]Rose Festival's Annual Starlight Parade[/link] will be taking place this Saturday evening.

    Some of your fellow OFF members wil lbe trooping with the 501st! Crashdown has just been accepted into the Dark Side Troopers with his fantasic Jedi outfit! Of course I'll be marching. Two other attending DST members (Bill and Rob) are also random posters here on the OFF.

    I actually am posting to tell you all that we need some help. If you can come to the parade, we need spotters for the event. Spotters are very important when trooping. We would like 6 to 8 spotters. Spotters are a key element in parades, especially a night parade! They help take photos, make sure the troops don't step in horse crap and also help with crowd control.

    If anyone would like to help out, please respond here. I know there isn't much time, but we need all the help we can get...

    It's great to be a Dark Side Trooper.....my mother would be so proud of me[face_dancing]

    The Starlight Parade sounds like it will be fun. Even if you don't have a costume, but can be a spotter, it should be a ball. I've been in a few parades in my time, and just being in one is a great rush.

    It would be great if more OFF members can join us!!

    Wet? What, did it rain?[face_laugh]

    It was great fun, we all had a great time, although we were all ready to collapse by the end.

    And, THANK YOU BILL, for being a spotter. You were beyond help, you were a necessity.

    Since Bill has yet to actually become a poster, Ill message for him...

    Bill had a great time walking in the parade and we both loved meeting DST members. He got loads of good pictures. We went for cocktails after the parade and he was showing them off (In particular, one of Darth Vader holding a baby was a big hit). DST and 501st were a favorite in the parade, great job guys!
