  9. BPStoyle Jedi Master

    no worries. We'll get back to everyone after the meeting with what we come up with.

    Anna, are you able to make the event itself?

    Running a bit late but I'm on my way

    Many thanks to Kathleen for hosting our little gathering this evening. Here are the details we know so far:

    The actual event starts at 6:30. Gathering time for our group is approximately 5:30. Some of us will be there a bit earlier than that. Parking is on the street (Lincoln Parkway) behind the Albright Knox Art Gallery. If you have a lot of costume gear to unload, you can drive up the road to the Casino, unload and then park back out on the street. We hope to be able to scope out the area and have a game plan before the event starts.

    We will be sharing a room in the Casino with the bands who are performing that night. The room is secure (not open to the public) so we should be able to leave our gear there.

    The plan is for us to mingle with the crowd at the beginning of the event. During the times between when the bands are performing, we will do one of our two performances. We plan to do a ‘flash mob’ (see earlier post on this thread) and hopefully a duel, if two people would like to volunteer. Time TBD, based on how long the bands play. When we are performing, we will be on the concrete area between the casino and the stage where the bands are playing.

    The event goes until 11 pm. We expect our activities to wrap up about 9:30-10pm. We have been told we are welcome to stay until the end, in costume or street clothes. Dress is casual, and space-themed clothing is encouraged. There will be people there to do some sort of face-painting to make people look more ‘alien’ or ‘spaceman-like’. There will be a cash bar.

    If you have not responded to this event, please post your availability ASAP.

    We will be meeting next Thursday, Sept. 6th at 7 pm behind Lincoln Arena (where we practiced for the Bisons game). Please try to attend if possible. We will be working out the details of the flash mob, and a duel or two if we have volunteers.

    This sounds like a very nice event which will support the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy. It's also a nice way to get our name out to a group of folks who may not know about us yet!
  12. quigonschuel Jedi Master

    Tentative for next Friday (Jedi, of course). I would be out for the meeting on 9/6, as it's my first church choir rehearsal of the year (7:30-9:30). Who knew Qui-Gon could sing?
  13. Darth erebus Jedi Master

    Is there a physical street address for lincoln arena? Just so I can make arrangements to go to the practice.
  14. BPStoyle Jedi Master

    1200 Parker Blvd. Buffalo, NY 14223

    Google Map:
    https://maps.google.com/maps?q=1200... Blvd, Buffalo, New York 14223&gl=us&t=m&z=17


    Essentially, it's the corner of Parker and Decatur. There is a parking lot on the Parker side that most of us used when we were there for dueling rehearsals. To be clear this rehearsal will be in the field area and not in the arena itself. If you plan to attend, bring a lightsaber. If you don't have one, please post to see if someone will lend you one. (Elaine, I have you covered).


    Additionally, thank you to the folks who made it to the planning meeting tonight. No harm/no foul to those who weren't able to make it, as it was very last minute. Many thanks to Kathleen for hosting, and to Elaine for taking/posting notes.

    I forgot to mention that the 9/6 rehearsal is not expected to be a long one - 1 hour or so should do it.
  16. 72Princess Jedi Knight

    I injured my back pretty good - not sure how.... but I am not sure I would be able to participate after all. I am hoping a weekend of rest should do it.... Also, I would be unable to make the 9/6 rehearsal due to Open House at the kids' school. So count me out for dueling, I may show up to simply help with the event but again, I have to have a sitter twice that week already and would need to pay for one more night...
  17. Rogue1138 Jedi Knight

    Bryan, was referring to the event itself.
  18. BPStoyle Jedi Master

    Cool. Thanks Marty!
  19. quigonschuel Jedi Master

    Just looked at my schedule...back to back to back rehearsals Tuesday through Thursday next week. I will have to count myself out for Friday 9/7. :(
  20. Mother_of_the_Twins Jedi Master

    One more info bit: we will not be bringing R2 or Claw'd for this event. Transportation and droid-sitters are not available.
