    So we have been ask to help out. Well.... be there anyways. We are going to be setting up a nd Fan Club table for the show. Were in the show ... we do not know yet. lol but Ralph is working on that. We can do whatever we would like for the table.

    I know Steve and Andy are working on new fliers as well as some table signs I think. I have a TON of freebies left over from the Clone Wars Diner we can pass out. We can also sell or raffle off anything we wish for the show as well. You know do some fund raising for the group.

    I'm sure I can find something to but in the pile. lol So if anyone has ANYTHING out there they would like to donate PLEASE let me know and we'll find I way to pick it up. It DOES NOT have to be Star Wars. If can be anything Sci-fi of Comic related. It's a comic show. lol I know we'll have a basket set up full of wrestling stuff. lol

    NO! No one in the group that goes and works the table has to pay. I think we can have up to 4/5 people.

    I'll check with Ralph but I'm sure we'll be good. I don't think we'll have that many people helping out as it is. So ... I mean I hope we have more. But so far it looks like ...

    James
    Steve
    Brandon (if get a ride)
    Myself.

    I still have not heard from Andy and them. So we 'll see. I think Andy should go pick up Brandon. They drive to Johns. John than drive from there to Steve's and everyone comes together from Steve's. That way it cuts all the driving in half for everyone!! lol Well see

    SeeYa,
    TK

    Just a thought about the mileage....it's much shorter to go from Manchester to Portsmouth than all the way up here. But, I do understand that it greatly reduces the number of miles one person has to drive... if people to meet here and ride down together,that's good with me!

    So, what is the concensus on transportation? I would be happy to drive from Alton, whether or not the southerners go.

    What time do we need to be there by?

    Depending on the inside temperature at the hotel, I would be willing to wear the Tusken if we are doing costumes and no one else has reserved it.

    What time do you think we will be finished, that is, with clean-up and all?

    Will there be food available to purchase there or should we bring our own?

    All the ???. lol

    I have NO idea what the southern people are doing? I know that John can not make it I talked to him today. As for Andy and Brandon? Not sure. Next...

    The show starts at 10am set would be before...duhhh... lol I think maybe 9/9:30? I have gift bags and the fliers. Plus the table signs and the banner. I'll have it there before you guys come. I start set up around 8:30/9. It ends at 3pm. If it is slow we can all ways close up early I would think? But it is over at 3pm.

    I do not know where we will be setting up till I get there. Sorry.

    As far as food? The hotel does have a restaurant which I think will be open. Plus there is a ton of stuff local.

    Ok... I think I answered everything you had. lol If not... I'll make another post.

    SeeYa,
    TK

    We got some interested people from this area who seemed that they would inquire further about the club. I just hope that the web site is up soon so we don't look too foolish.
    We raised an okay amount of money (our treasurer can provide details) but it probably not enough to make it worthwhile for us at comics-only shows. We should discuss this further. I noticed that we got more traffic when I put the top half of TK's trooper suit on. Next time I think we should have someone dressed as Slave Leia and Steve can take and charge for photos. Perhaps John is up for that costume...?:rolleyes:
    We may also want to discuss using some club funds to purchase better and more current raffle items (or, when we are a real non-profit solicit toy donations from Wal-Mart and Target and FYE) so there is more interest in the items to be raffled off. And although Brandon's models are great and get some traffic, I believe that perhaps more literature about the club, a photo album and that video from our dinner event showing what we do would be more appropriate. We Have people at the tables to answer questions about our members' hobbies.

    Just some quick thoughts.

    Tara's been interested in getting into a Slave Leia bikini. We just cant afford one and the one I started making wasn't so good so I tossed it.

    We have connections to a slave Leia if we want her but she needs at least a month notice since she has other gigs and usually Air Fare needs to covered from Florida. Her website is www.amiradance.com and I am friends with her that is how I know her. She can do ceremonial and senatorial Leia as well.

    I believe that the idea is to get people to COME to the table, not DRIVE them away! [face_sick]

    C'mon, John, don't you think you would look great in a metal bikini? (as TK says: "lol")
    But seriously, I saw a Slave Leia costume at buystarwarscostumes.com or something like that, when I searched for costume rentals. This one can be bought for only $54. If we decide to use this to get more attention at the shows, we could buy the costume with group funds and then we could get soemone to wear it, Tara perhaps if she's willing.
    Juat a suggestion to ponder for our next meeting.

    I'm sure I could coerce Tuesday into wearing it sometime...

    After paying postage to ship the last of the raffle prizes,we really didn't clear THAT much on Sunday. I agree abotu offering current, desireable star wars items in our raffles -- legos, vehicles, newer action figures, etc. Fortunately Ralph 3 out of 4 raffles so we didnt' have even more to ship!

    Rats! If only my forearms weren't so much more manly that TK's, I could have had my photo in the paper again!

    It is a great likeness of me, too! Top billing picture in the article, no less. Thanks for the link, John.
