    God I love you freaks!!!!

    Anyhow, we should try to get a tally on who is planning on trooping the og tril. Then we could see about splitting them up into, batallions?

    EP, will you even be here for this?

    hey bobasparxx, any word on us trooping this? there has been some talk about it on the 501st boards and people wanted to know what was going on... and I think the midnight fell though at the Hastings so there might be a possibility that there are troopers there at midnight. as well as the next day. let us know...

    Right on. My store is always willing to have the group around. My store mgr. almost peed his pants the last time the group came down. I apologize for not coming by here as often as I should and keeping an update on the "Trooping" event. My family and baby boy have stalled me from activities. My bad.

    If someone in the group could organize members/costumed or not to participate in this even would be greatly appreciated. Head count too. Costumed characters is a must. I was thinking of an evening time frame (5pm-7pm or 6pm to 8pm)? That way it would give some of you time to leave your jobs/finish homework/dinner. My store mgr. always provided food from deli. There are a few places to change for members in costume.

    We could raise money for CMN by taking pics with the characters like we did the last couple times the group came down. If and when this is a go, someone contact me ASAP. You could even stop by the store any day between 9am-6pm except Wednesdays and Saturdays. I juggle between the Connection Center and Photo Lab (back in Electronics).

    Thanks bobasparxx... (sorry I don't know your actual name [face_worried] ) We are kinda late in getting this together so no worries about checking in more often...family first always! I myself have always been more of a lurker here...I also should try and post more often.

    Anyway, lets say for sure that this is a go! I know there are DRS members who definately want to troop and several individuals from Mos Alba that will help out however they can. So I will be getting together a list of costumed members and other individuals that can do this then. I think the evening start time is great. I will try to stop by or call the store except I don't know who to ask for [face_blush]

    Thanks again - looking forward to this!

    Thanks Bob!
    Sounds like everyone who has had the fortunate experience of trooping at the store shares your opinion! And yes Jason did let me know his name also. I'll be calling him soon on this and look forward to meeting him too! :)

    So how are things? Are you a new daddy yet? My best as always to Julie and the whole family!

    That's too sad!! :_| You'll have to come back and join us for future events...Hopefully you'll be able to go out in style with your Officer's costume though!

    Anyway the word is definately go on this! I spoke with Jason (bobasparxx) over the weekend and everything is all set up for Tuesday 6-8 at the Walmart on Eubank/I-40. Yay! Thanks so much again Jason! I think its gonna be amazing fun and I hope we raise lots of money for CMN too! Can't wait!

    I'll post Friday the best estimate numbers and costumes that'll be there! :D

    The Rebel Legion will represent also!!! Wookiee style!!! Just wish there were more of us. Damn you imperial forces in your cool armor! All we got are orange jumpsuits, robes, and fur. At least I won't be cold.

    [face_laugh] Orange jumpsuits, robes and fur...its like the makings of a weird fetish film

    Anyway you are right, so far mostly imperials will be out in full force. Here's what we've got:
    4 Stormtroopers
    Darth Vader
    Snowtrooper
    Stealth Trooper (possibly 2)
    Biker Scout (possibly 2)
    Tusken Raider (possibly 2)
    TIE Pilot (possibly 2)
    Chewbacca
    Boba Fett (pretty sure)
    and maybe just maybe an Imperial Officer
    Plus Jason is gonna try and get into his Jedi (right?)

    Anyway it should be fun! Getting excited! Less than a week away!!!

    Damn, that cool! Thats an impressive lineup. If I suit up, looks like I'll be a minority as a Jedi...

    I'm going to hang up the flyers tomorrow. I made extra copies on the stores zerox machine. They kind of came out poor quality, but it'll do. Thanks again everyone who will be coming down next Tuesday. I look forward to meeting/seeing the group again.

    and don't forget girls in bikini's...

    and yes we do need more rebels... the problem is I do double duty... as an fine upstanding rebel citizen. and rebel scum, maybe I should clone myself so I can troop on both sides...

    but seriously... we should get a flight of X-wing pilots together it's fairly impressive when you get more than one together... what do ya say? Troopin' is Troopin' it's all star wars to me.

    and my next costume probably will be another rebel one... ya like I need more..

    I have a Rebel scum story. My family and I where attending C2 and we had walked outside to get some fresh air. I'm in my Jedi robe. Then here comes some women dressed up as an Imperial Officer. She passes by me and says in a nasty tone..."Jedi scum". She got about 20 feet in front of us and tripped on the pavement. Damnm, was that funny. If Karma exists, it struck her good.
