    Can non-costume members help in any way?

    I know I'll never say no to having your photography skills at any event, Stephen. It's great PR stuff for the group's website and Facebook pages. You'd be surprised how many of our older events have little to no photo coverage.

    As for other ways to participate, Larry would be the one to know better. I imagine there will be SOMETHING to do at the table but since we're not collecting for charity Larry would have a better idea of what to do there.

    So Saturday I have a work call at NRTG until about 2, I can come out after that which would be around 3, if you need me then, I could also come for the evening "shift" until about 9.

    Sunday, I can do pretty much the whole day, what time would we all be getting there for the matinees?

    Fandango has posted showtimes, finally.
    Go an look them up.

    On Friday, we should plan to be in costume by 3:30 for the 2nd round beginning at 4:10.
    Saturday 1st show is at 12:40, be ready to go by noon-12:15 latest.
    Sunday, 1st show is 12:20, so be ready by 11:30 AM.

    We're bringing along training sabers and certificates, to do abbreviated youngling training, very shortened versions since we'll have villains on hand.

    I would definitely suggest coming and taking pictures if you can. It never hurts to have a dedicated photographer as opposed to someone in costume. I can bring my extra support shirt if you want.

    To clarify: if we are coming later in the day (Sunday), and can't get ready with the group (at time posted above), what would be the plan?

    I'll be there tomorrow night as a jedi (can't make it on Saturday or Sunday).

    I'll come in costume but will store my jacket and saber case there.
    I'll be able to leave here at around 5:30 which means I'll be there a bit before 6.

    I'll try to stay until the beginning of the 10:20 show.

    Arrive when you can and we'll direct you to the changing room.
    This applies to everyone, since not everyone can or wants to be there the entire day.

    That would be great if I can use the shirt. I know you can always use photos but I was worried about how the theater would feel about me walking in with a larger size camera.

    Photos in the lobby and outside the theatre will be OK.
    No cameras in the theatre.

    I don't know if they're getting any more this weekend, but the theatre was out of them early tonight. They went VERY quickly. I don't know if anyone in the group actually got a pair.
