    Here's another local event. It's in Welland Ontario Sat. May 23 12:30 to 5:00 PM.

    Rob is a good guy and he's donating to our event.

    That's what they were made for. Are you taking them down there or is he picking them up? Wait he's coming here for our event, he could take them with him.

    Ok, I managed to get the day off to go to this. The only thing is that, I have to drop off my mom and nephew in Port Colborne the next town south of Welland. Their visiting my grandfather while I go to the event. So I don't have much room for car pooling, but I could use the carrier on the roof for costumes.

    That's great. Janet and I have been making plans to go. How many can you accommodate in the van?

    I can have 4 to 5 people in the van. There has to be room for costumes and Wicket needs to come home too.

    If you've got room, count me in. My costume is pretty compact; it fits in an overnight bag. I can carry my helmet on my lap.

    I look forward to seeing you guys again, if you can make it. :) It'll be nice for you to be able to just mingle and not have to worry about overseeing anything.

    Rob sent me this message:

    "Doug if you want to sell some of those mini saber..please bring some and if you have any small toy donations/poster left that would be great.I'd ask that you donate a small portion of your proceeds back to Help A Child Smile as this is a fundraiser.

    Sounds like a great idea to me. What do you guys think?

    The mini-sabers are at the Garrison, so be sure to set a couple aside for yourself this Sunday (as I won't be there). If we are going to take them to Welland, can someone remember to pick them up?

    TK42Tom made these great photos. I'm having 40 of each printed at Costco, so we can take them with us and hand out in Welland. They will be ready tomorrow.

    Oh yeah, I didn't even think. Perhaps TK42Tom can design another photo of you in your TK armour, and I can get those done. That way you can choose what you want to wear, not what we have printed up. These prints are super cheap, so I don't mind.

    I plan on picking these photos up today.

    I read that Anthony Forrest will be signing autographs in Welland too. He is the actor who played the Sandtrooper that Obi-wan pulled the Jedi mind trick on in Mos Eisley. He also played Fixer, Luke's friend in Anchorhead (from the deleted scenes).

    Could be a fun photo opportunity. =D=

    I have the photos that TK42Tom designed and they look great. I have 40 for Rabellaka and myself, and 40 each of Lord_Robert's two costumes. I'll bring them with me on the 23rd.

    It looks like Granite and I will be spending the night afterwards at our friend's place. I hope that means everyone else has a seat in the van. If needed, I can bring Wicket back with me though.
