In partnership with OmegaCon (Science Fiction / Fantasy Convention, B'ham - march 2008), Members and Friends of the Alabama SW Syndicate and additional Star Wars costumers from the Southeast will be headlining "BOO at the Zoo" this weekend! Boo at the Zoo (BATZ) welcomed over 50,000 visitors during its October weekends in 2006! This year the Zoo is devoting a whole weekend to the Sci-Fi theme with "A Galaxy Far, Far Away..." If you live within driving distance of Birmingham and would like to join in on the STELLAR weekend we have planned, please find details posted below about how to 'costume up' and join us!

Volunteers should come to the ZOO OFFICE ENTRANCE to the LEFT of the MAIN ZOO ENTRANCE. Be sure to tell them that you are with OmegaCon and they can send you on to our check-in.
