    I didn't get a chance to update everyone at the meeting today because there was so much SWN info that was needed so I will update here.
    First, as of right now only 4 people have registered so if anyone else is going to come, please register. It's free.

    Second, if you're going to be in costume, please let me know so I can spread the word. Jeff, Kate, Cart, and I will be in costume. I'm not sure about anyone else that has registered.

    Third, the event starts at 9AM (registration for those who haven't, pre-walk festivities, etc.) The actual walk will start around 10AM. It is not a long walk, it's a little less than 2 miles I think. As walkers return there is food and drinks and raffle drawing winners are announced. Basically, you can plan on being done between 11:30 and noon.

    Gathering point: I will be near the registration tent as my folks are helping out with that, so when you arrive just head there. I'm sure people will want to get pictures with us and there is usually an open area near that tent to do so.

    Parking: the walk is at Canalside so parking is always a challenge. If you're planning to go to Nickel City though, maybe park near the convention center and hop the train down to canalside and back.

    Thanks again to those who have registered and donated. Any other questions or info needed, just ask.

    FYI: I will not be walking, but can't see squat with the bucket on. (Glasses do not fit in the bucket). I'll do my best to guard belongings, but no guarantees.

    Maybe I'll stick with you. I wish I had some of those Imperial citations. We could go around around giving people tickets for non-compliance with Imperial regulations.

    It's looking like I won't be able to attend this. I work until 3am the night before and Liz's car is going to be in the shop, so we will probably have to go pick it up at some point in the morning. I should still be able to attend Nickel City, but for a limited amount of time.

    Several of us are planning to meet at the Convention Center around 8:15 to get in costume and then take the Metro Rail down to Canaalside. If you are planning to join us, enter from the loading dock in the back of the BCC.
    If you are meeting us at the walk, gather near the registration tent. My folks are running that area and they will know you're with Team Evergreen. Be sure to check in at the tent to get any info or handouts.

    Indeed. Thank you so very much. It was so wonderful to have all of you with me. I've heard some awesome feedback from people who were there that they "loved the Star Wars perople"
