    A disussion thread was started yesterday over on the YJN boards to gauge how many marchers would be interested in particpating in the Grape & Wine Parade again this year. It will be Sat Sept 29th.

    The application/submission deadline is August 7th.

    Personally, I am on the fence as I've tentatively committed to the Autism walk here in Henrietta that same day. But, I wanted folks to be aware that discussion is taking place for a parade that many of us have participated in the past couple years.

    I am ussually in on this one , it being my gate way to joining RL and really getting into the costume thing, but I will have to wait and see closer to the date. I am 50 / 50 on it right now. Do you need a passport to drive into Canada or is that still only if you fly?

    As discussed at our meeting today here is the thread on YJN's boards about this event.
    http://boards.theforce.net/niagara_on/b10319/27099990/p1/?25
    And specifically, here is the feedback from the parade committee:

    As I mentioned at the meeting, for those thinking of attending the parade please make sure to put forth your best so as to not jepordize YJN's ability to sign-up for this parade next year.

    YJN is looking for a head count of those marching and for those staying for the after parade meal so please post if you'll be participating in both or just the parade (or not able to do either).

    YJN is trying to eliminate duplicate costumes and as such I need to provide a list of costumes we're "providing". Please post what you think you'll be wearing.

    I am now a big maybe on this. Stupid me waited to long to take this day off in the Days off book at McDonalds and they only take the first 5 people. I wrote mine in any way just for the heck of it today as number 7. I kept on forgetting to before. There is a possibility that I will not get scheduled to work Saturday, or if I do I can always try and switch with someone else which is a long shot but either way I will not know until the week before.

    A couple of new posts on the bottom of page 2 and top of page 3 that marchers should be aware of.

    Pictures are up:
    http://www.garrisonexcelsior.com/forum/gallery2.php?g2_itemId=42011&g2_page=1&g2_navId=x81cc6a85

    At some point I have to re-upload everything joint to our own photo galleries, but right now I think we only have enough server space for 1 copy (can't link like I had hoped to) so we'll have to view things on Excelsior's space for now. But, hey it's free (sorta) so I guess I shouldn't complain.
