    What: Toys-For-Tots troop led by the 501st Legion

    When: November 17th (Saturday), 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM.

    Where: The Disney Store inside Lynnhaven Mall in VA Beach.

    I am extending an invitation to all canon & non-canon costumed members of the Tidewater Alliance FanForce, Rebel Legion, and Hampton Roads Rebellion FanForce to maximize participation in our area.

    We'll be hanging around and outside the store to draw people into the premises and encourage toy donations. Lots of photography by store patrons is to be expected.

    There's a strong chance you'll be able to change in the backroom of the store depending on space. Details to follow as event get closer.

    Lynnhaven Mall generates a lot of foot traffic during this time of the year, so this will be a lot of fun!

    Hope you can a make it!:)

    Primus and I both will be there. The TA will be making a very good Showing.
    If someone outside of the groups wants to help, What can they do? My neighbor wants to come and help.

    To reduce congestion in the mall/kiosks areas, Lynnhaven Mall Management would like us to break the group up into 2 groups, each with a different shift (11AM - 1PM & 1PM - 3PM). I anticipate there will be 5-8 costumers in each group. There will be a Marine on hand on each shift to monitor the TFT donations.

    Please indicate which shift you would like to be in. I will be in both shifts to liaise with the Marine Corp contact, Disney Store Manager, and Mall Manager.

    I would like to achieve a "balance" between armored costumes and soft costumes, so bear in mind I may ask you to move over if I feel there are too many costumes of one category in a group.

    Prop weapons will be allowed in public.

    Due to limited space in the Disney Store's backroom, we cannot change there. You must find an alternative place to change either in the parking lot or in the Lynnhaven Mall bathrooms. All your belongings will be your responsibility to care for. We cannot leave them inside the store, even on a temporary basis, while we troop.

    Group A - Attending (11AM-1PM):
    1) Alan - (Clone)


    Group B - Attending (1PM-3PM):
    1) Alan - (Clone)
    2) TGaines - (Stormie)
    3) Anakinos - Anakin Skywalker
    4) Chris Maher (Jedi)
    5) Dawn Kerman (Jedi)
    6) barry maher (Sith)
    7) WendyNat (TI, TS)


    Maybes:
    1) Kelly Gable (?)
    2) Noel (TS, Rebel Pilot, or Sith)
    3) Jason Bruggeman (Sith)

    I'm in, opposite Wendy's shift. I'm opting for Rebel Pilot. I believe Rick C. will be doing Rebel Trooper.

    Here's an updated list. So far both groups look balanced in terms of costume type. It's still early yet. So let's allow people to stay within their chosen timeslot for now.

    For anyone who is still on the sidelines, consider taking the 11AM-1PM (Group A) shift if it's feasible.

    Thanks again TA!
