    Some of you may remember the Star Wars day the Library held in 2007 and what a buzz it was for those involved, especially the kids (except the ones that Hunky made cry... ). There was over 2000 people through the door that day!

    Well the Library is doing it again this July as part of the School Holiday Program.

    On July 15th from around 11 am until the evening, the Library is running a load of programs for kids and adults and are extending an invitation to members of the SAFF to attend in costume. We are actually hoping that some members would like to be involved in some of the programs on the day too!

    Last time there was a mock lightsaber duel between two staff which was pretty popular with the kids, but lacked a little authenticity. This year we are hoping that we would could enlist a couple of Ultra-Saber armed folk to give us a couple of saber duels that will make the kids' heads explode! (Well maybe not explode, but you understand).

    There will be Clone mask making and a Clone parade (any Clones are very very welcome), dress your teddy as an ewok for the real young ones, a bunch of other craft activities and stuff. Adults will be able to participate in an interactive quiz to win some pretty good prizes (probably film tickets at this stage but that may change).

    There will be a FREE screening of Star Wars: the Clone Wars film from 6 pm for anyone who wants to attend, put on by RoadMovie (like with a big screen and proper sound).

    If anyone is interested or would like further information feel free to PM me or respond in this thread.

    Cheers Merrick (on behalf of Pam at the CTTG Library)

    This is only 5 days after the Hogwarts day, and being as it's an hours drive, I have to think about this one.

    I have realised I can't, I have another event on that day that goes from 12.30 then later at 8pm. I'm sorry, just can't be there, would like to though. But if you want a costume for display, Toddi has my Leia Bespin, and it looks so lovely on you ;)

    Merrick will be taking Jedi padawan classes for half the day. I don't think they will respect his authoritah if he's dressed as Bespin Leia.
    No would my employers...

    But the gesture is kind.
