Nevets (for 2-ish hours)
USS Tranquility (Diane, Mary Ann, Paul L.)
JediKnightLisa (may come later in the day)
Jason - Boba Fett
Looks like we'll have a pretty good turnout!
Anyone else coming?
I'm looking forward to this and I'm figuring it can't be any colder than it was in Indy, so I should be okay.
is there a link to this for more information?
The Village Gate Toy Show is pretty low tech... They don't have a website (although that's a thought for the March show ). What information are you looking for? I think most of the basics should be covered in this thread.
Sheesh...we'll have a small Army present.
We're taking over VGS all your toys now belong to us!
just a time frame... I got a PM being guilted into going Wont mention from who though
the show runs from 10 to 4 although some will be there by 9 for set up
There's been talk about doing dinner afterwards & then some of us have bowling that night that will end up getting pushed back by dinner, so feel free to join us for all 3 if you'd like
I'll be there, allthough im not sure if I'm going as darth maul or backup chewie yet
Chewbacca would be fine as I'm not sure how much KnightShade will be in costume if he's going to be helping me sell, watch the club tables and take pictures.
we bowl ourselves till 1 on sunday so just trying to get a feel for what is what timewise. It would be nice to head out there for dinner and such
Honestly I will have to see how the weather holds up for us. We are forcasted a foot by morning... not sure what sunday will look like yet
Yeah, weather is not looking at all good on my end.
I'm still hopeful we can get up to Rochester by Saturday though...
Katie you might want to forgo your Buffalo trip and just make for Rochester...thats not a fun area you're going to be driving through..
Yeah...I was thinking the same thing. Then we'd be leaving later in the day so the roads (in theory) should be clearer.
Gotta touch base with Lyn tonight, we'll probably play it by ear in the morning.
Some of us are meeting at 8:15 at the Pembroke rest stop. We should be there around 9.
I'll bring my radio and chime in when we arrive. I'll use the same channel as the BPO event. If it changes, can someone PM me?
Mindy won't be appearing in costume. She's dropping me off and visiting with her friend. I'm sure she'll swing by the show for a bit with mini me!
I'll make sure to have the walkies on and ready!
Weather isn't bad here *knock on wood* so Lyn and I are heading out shortly.
So as long as we get to Wingnut's okay, we'll see everybody on Sunday morning!
sunny & blue skies here, well at least for now.
as my dubm luck ability would have it the guard that was sapossed to replace me never shoed up so I don't have to work overnight, looks like I can stay longer now then before. should i bring my laptop to help out or not? let me know.
I didn't get a chance to get anything ready to display on a laptop unless I can find the fan film disc we made up for the last toy show. So, I'm not sure what we'd use your laptop for exactly or where we'd put it, but I suppose you can bring it if you'd like.
The thing I do need is a boombox with a CD player so that we can have some background SW music playing. If anyone has one of those (or if I remember to call MadKid and ask him) please bring that. I have all the CDs, just no way to play them away from home.
EDIT: FYI - for those at the sales table, Diane will be bringing a cash box and the Tranquility will be providing seed money for it. For the raffle(s) going on they can make change out of that.
I got the boombox in the trunk still from Astronomicon so we're all good.
If anyone has some Star Wars CD's - bring them for music.
We put ours in a safe place, and they aren't surfacing at the moment.
I got it covered...if I got time tonight after finishing Lyndi's saber...I'll be burning all night
