    I had the date wrong for the G&W parade - it's actually Sept 30th not 23rd so it won't conflict with Mighty Mini Con!

    Young Jedi Niagara has started a thread over on their boards to see how many folks are interested in doing this event again this year.

    As I said the parade is on Saturday, Sept 30th and starts at 11am. So we'd have to leave Rochester by 8am at the very latest.

    So what say you?

    Though outclassed as Anakin by Primrodo, who knows... maybe my Obi-Wan will be ready by then... but, yeah, I'm in regardless!

    I always enjoy Grape and Wine with our friends from the North, I am there. Obi Wan would be cool Dean, then there is always "Good" or "Evil" Anakin to consider.

    Even though it's over 6 weeks away let's get this list going so that YJN has an idea of how many might be supporting them and to know if there's anyone who is not going and can make the WXXI event.

    Don't forget - non-costumed folk are welcome to participate too. We'll need help keeping the marchers hydrated, takin pictures and/or video, etc.

    HI Everyone!!

    Thanks to Nicky, I have (or will be shortly) posted the list of those who are planning on coming to the parade, either to walk with the group or just to party with afterwards. Please check that I have included your names and if not, please PM me. It's just for a head count, so we know how much food to plan for.

    Thanks, and cross your fingers that we don't have rain for that day. :)

    We're planning to leave our house at 7am to make it to St. Catharines by 9am. Is there a good caravan meet-up spot? We'd be taking 490 W to 90 coming from our house.

    There are now 37 people listed to attend this event! This is very exciting!
    Not all of them will be marching, but most of them will so I'm sure it will be an impressive site.

    Tinseltown/Home Depot would be fine for a meet-up. We would probably get there between 7am-7:30am.

    Still debating on what to do with the younglings...

    Who's driving? I would like to ride up with someone, at least from Tinsel Town. I would be more then happy to pitch in gas money of course.

    The Avalon will now have 2 free seats as we were able to get a babysitter for the younglings.

    So far only a high of 56* is predicted so pick a warm-ish costume. Not that that's usually too hard...

    As long as its dry, 56 is great costume weather, if you ask me. We have been spoiled in the past 2 years. It was nice.

    As TX4277 will no longer be making it tomorrow, we're probably going to need another driver as the Avalon won't fit all 6 of the people (& their costumes) that are meeting at Tinseltown.
