syracuse heroes expo
Wow! You beat me to it!
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.
Cool! thanks for the lkink!
I will have to check into this one. A bit busy till the end of the month, but hopefully we can actually attend this one
Does rochester have any plans of going to this one?
We should probably do a table together
Yup, I believe we'll have members of The Rebellion, Garrison Excelsior and Echo Base attending.
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.
Some of us in Binghamton are interested in coming up.
Awesome to hear!
I am going to be busy till first week of sept so I will do my best to pop in here and see whats what.
looking forward to it!
So far there's Strawbary and maybe some from Binghamton. Anyone else thinking of coming out for this?
I will be putting together a new flyer and trying to update the photo album. Does anyone have any photos they want to upload to yahoo for me to print?
Afte speakin with Darren tonight from Rochester I have decided SCJ will be there to do face painting for charity.
Anyone coming out?
If anyone has a suggestion for a charity let me know.
I have a few kids signed up to help face paint.... any one else coming up? we are working on a new flyer currently, hopefully we can get that done in time
I want to put together a charity raffle if possible. So whatever anyone would like to donate would be most helpful
Anyone catch this:
Ray Park comes to Syracuse the same weekend I'm out of town. Dammit!
Awesome! They posted my press release!
I always forget to check.
EDIT: There's a new link on www.syracuseheoresexpo.com that shows the clip if the promotor Jeff on the channel 9 news (no mention of us, but still cool).
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
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 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!
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!!!
I was quite impressed to see people from Philly making the trek all the way up to little ole syracuse!
Thanks soooo much for making this event possible! You guys rock and are always welcome back to Sryacuse!!!!
Big hugs and thanks!!!!
BTW - We made $43 for the Central NY SPCA!
Wow, very cool!
It seemed like we would have made more considering how busy we were LOL but that day was a blur for me. I cant even tell you how many people I spoke with that day LOL
I've gotten all my pictures uploaded, but I haven't weeded out all the duplicates yet nor are they all rotated.
