    Wow! You beat me to it! [face_laugh]

    I emailed the promotor (same guy as the Comic Book Expo in May) to let him know that we'd all be interested in coming out again.

    LOL I hd that window open forever at work trying to respond to it. LOL looks like my question was answered before I could hit reply ;)

    Let me know. It will really depend on how much interest we can conjure up from the syracuse clan. I know I can go and try to round up some new faces. I noticed alot of people registered in the forum there are from syracuse. So *fingers crossed* we can get some new members!!! :)

    I know that one of Garrison Excelsior's new recruits who is in Syracuse is planning on attending so that'll be at least one new face!

    I cc'd you on the most recent email I sent to the promotor so that you can see what we've discussed so far.

    I want to put together a charity raffle if possible. So whatever anyone would like to donate would be most helpful :)

    Ian and charles have confirmed they will be there if we need help. I will be there also. I will not have the banner in time :( I will be bringing flyers and a few props if anyone else would like to bring something (photos,props or anything) to help promote SCJ !!!

    I know I have spoken to a few of you but for those I havent yet, there are quite a few people traveling for this event to volunteer for 501st. If anyone has any available crash space for them please post here or in the rochester forums please :)
    Thanks!

    Everyone is arriving between 9 am and 9:3o to help set up.
    Free passes were limited and currently unavailable :(
    I believe the admission is 15.00

    I hope to still see some of the old SCJ faces there !

    See everyone there!

    Im home and wiped out from the day. I hurt my back 3 weeks ago and have been in bed most of the time so to be out today all day standing tuckered my old bones thats for sure! LOL

    It was great to see so many people from 501st/rochester come out. There were some from PA too I was glad to see.
    MAde some great contacts today for some upcoming local events.
    Hopefully we will have some new recruits from this. Lots of questions at the table today.... We'll see how it goes :)

    It was great to see Ian and Charles there. Always good to see Rochester there!

    THanks to everyone who helped out at the table and who costumed. The crowd really seemed to embrace the SW presence there.
    Thanks guys! :)

    Thanks for staying so long at the table Strawbary. I know you didn't initially mean to stay long, but it sure was a big help having you and your daughter manning the table while everyone else was out and about.
    I'm looking forward to the promotor's future shows!
    I'll post as picture link here somnetime later today.

    It was no problem nicky, I didnt mind talking to people. :)

    I am very proud of my daughter, she was a real trooper and was a great help at the table. There were times where we were mobbed and she kept right up handing things out to the kids :)

    I had fun, it was good to see everyone and I am keeping my fingers crossed we get at least one new recruit from it! :)

    I tallked with a few people who said they read the FF boards, but have not yet registered or posted, so hopefully now that they met some of us, it will be enough to nudge them into joining in on the discussions. And the Wampa is from Syracuse! [face_hypnotized]

    Hello there!

    Just wanted to drop a note and say a huge "Thank You" to Garrison Excelsior for inviting members from Carida to attend this event!
    Wendy, Frank, Scooter and myself had a great time meeting, trooping and hangin' with you all! :)
    The event was a success, and the fan turn-out was impressive. Ray Park was fantastic with the fan's, posing for pix, signing and chatting. You could tell he really enjoyed being there, and he stayed right up to the end and beyond! The group shot with all of us together with Ray is a definate 8x10 for my wall!
    Again, thanks guy's! We really appreciate the invite and the fun we had with you all!

    Looking forward to many more event's together!!!
