    Got off to a late start Friday, only got one panel done. Chris said he could be there Saturday (July 1st), so the next attempt to finish the remaining two panels will be this Saturday. No painting yet! So, can anybody else make it to Cat's house then?

    Yes, these are the starfield panels. This is to finish assembling the remaining two panels.
    We can decide when to start painting the completed panels Saturday morning. I can make 8:00 AM.
    Cat, will you be awake at that time? If not, prepare to be awakened.

    Here are some awesome backdrop sites. I can print some of these out to vote on at the next meeting if you like. I personally like the Death Star hallway and the Emporers Window.

    I have some plans at 2:00pm as well as Sierras dance class from 10:00-11:20am. Jack do you think you and I can finish it by 10:00??? I can stop by and do that first thing then take Sierra to her class then possibly help move after her class. Oh btw I got your message the other night. I will try to get some new pics of some other kinds of stilts and possibly do 2 sets one for each of us if you are interested in modifying the wookie.

    I like all of the ideas, not being an artist, or that creative for that matter it is hard for me to invision how to go about all these ideas, but point me in the right direction and tell me what hand to move and where to move it and I will do whatever I can to help make it happen. Perhaps I am not quite that inept, but you get the picture. :)

    Hi, everybody, the Great Procrastinator here. We need to finish the assembly of these three panels and get them painted before we even contemplate doing a Death Star hallway for the 2006 Howl-a-ween zoo event. This weekend is a no-go for me. How about Saturday morning the 26th? Is that good for people? Once we get the braces attached we could start painting that same morning.

    Just looked at this message. Okay, so royal blue is not a good color to use with the grey background.
