    Wendy from Make a wish had contacted Stormtrooper Tracy about a kid getting his wish trip granted
    by the Make A Wish people. The kid loves Star Wars and they would like some Star Wars characters
    at the deal when they tell the kid they get their wish.

    It will be on Saturday, March 18 at noon at the Shotgun Dan's in Rose City which the lady says is in
    North Little Rock...

    She needs a count on how many of us can make it and what costume we will be in.
    Please reply here or pm me and I'll get that to her ASAP.

    Thanks to all who can help out with this...

    You can count on a Biker Scout and a Stormtrooper here, plus one little helper(we really need to get him a costume).

    By the way, do we know who(what) his favorite character is?????

I know they want a vader and jerm i was hoping you can come down if not i will ask another vader i know of if he can and beg if i have too lol

    I also know three celebrities and im trying to get them to send a autograph to me for the child. Bonnie Piece (spelled wrong but Aunt Beru Ep2-3) Amy Allen (Aayla Secura) and Hayden to see if they can sign a autograph in their respective roles. I will let you know when i find out more from them. The way i want to do this thou is joint RL/Arkansith/327th this is for a child and as a father of a young child this means alot to me personaly.

    OK So, we have at least one Stormtrooper, one biker scout, a tie pilot and at least 3 Jedi.

    I'm sending this info on to Wendi this morning.

    I agree on the parent of small children, and as a reciepeint of a Make A Wish trip as a child myself, and a mother of a child who was granted one of these trips I have a very soft spot for Make A Wish.

    It is a wonderful program that gave me a beautiful week with my daughter before she passed away.

    So, thanks to all who are willing to give their time for this...

    (And Vader, I know you'd do it man if it wasn't for the work thing. Thanks for that.)

    Hey, I trust y'all could use a Princess Leia??? The only way I won't make it is if I can't get my costume made nor access to the costume again (as in, it would be rented out already). Now, how do you get there? I suppose it's not the one on Keihl, and what's with this "Rose City" thing? I'm unclear on that; that's a new one.

    If you need me there, I can be there, but I am sort of indifferent--so just let me know if you want one more Jedi to fill out our numbers. I'll be working on my costume Friday night, so it will be looking better by then (Tabbards!).

    ok I just got off the phone with Wendy, here is a update. She wants us there at like 12:30 i say we still get there early cause Adam it will take a few mins to put on all the vader stuff, what I would like us to do is this...

    The two tk's and biker scout go in ahead of Vader, then Vader, and then the two pilots followed by the jedi, what Wendy wants us to do is give her a call when we are all ready, my wife will be our spotter so she will go in first especially for tk's vader and us pilots since we can't see anything LOL

    Heres my idea we can all meet at the Burger King on Hwy 161 at Protho Junction. Around 11:00 or so. Shotgun Dans is about 2 miles down and around the road from there. Those of us that want to can get a bite to eat and we can leave around 12:00. It may be raining so I dont want to get there to early and be standing around in the rain in armor and I know the Jedi robes soak up real good.
    For those that dont know where the Burger King is: From North Little Rock Interstate 40 E about 2 miles past the 67/167 exit is Protho. At the exit light take a right and it will be on your right about 1/2 mile. There is also a McDonalds, Sonic, Taco Bell all reall close. Any ? PM me or call. Those coming in out of town if you want my number just incase... Just PM me

    Well, like I said--I'm not dying to go--so someone take charge and say, "Jacob, please come. We would really like another jedi." or "No, you don't need to come, Jacob. We have plenty of costumers coming."

    ...actually--on second thought--I do want to be there because I want to meet our NWA folks!
