    I'm going to try and make it down from London, along with Primrodo (his Jedi costume is very cool). Probably in my Tatooine blue Padmé if that's okay with everyone! Anything anyone has about the Greyhound would be great! We'll probably get one into Hamilton, but after that "I'm not sure what will happen." Thanks for including us, guys! It sounds awesome!

    Don't worry about rides, since your bus will be dropping you and Justin off In Hamilton I should be able to pick you guys up from there and then we can all head to St.Catherines :)

    UPDATE:

    The paperwork is all done and sent in.

    Here is the list so far of who will be attending:

    From YJN:
    Chris.....Obi-Wan
    Debby.....unknown
    John......Not-A-Sith Really! Jedi
    Dana......unknown
    Chris P...Exar-Kun
    Lynn R....Child Gungan
    Andrew M..Chewbacca
    Nick......Han Solo
    Graeme....Boba (one syllable) Fett
    Bayley....Mara Jade
    Tim.......Generic Jedi #9
    Steph.....Padme (Rainbow Dress)
    Laurie....Padme (Arena Battle)
    Mallory...Anakin (Podracer)
    Eryn......Zam Wessel
    Leigh.....unknown
    Kevin.....Generic Jedi #6.25
    Andrew C..Darth Sidious
    Jay.......Stormtrooper
    Crystal...Vader, Darth
    Corey(?)..Anakin (AOTC)

    From London:
    Justin....Generic Jedi #42
    Debby.....Padme (Tatooine Blue Dress)

    From 501st:
    nobody yet

    (Don't you just love the way the boards removes extra spaces when you don't want it to?)

    I hope we can get some more, if I left you off the list let me know. I haven't heard from Stef or Mark (either one) yet if they'll be able to attend. So far the only definite no shows are the Smithville contingent.

    We should have quite a number of extra costumes available (20 by one count!) so if you are holding off because you need a costume, we can set you up!! Sign up now.

    I want to plan a get together the weekend before the parade (September 21 or 22). Its for people that need to touch up their existing costumes. For people who are borrowing one it will give you a chance to make sure it fits, and learn how to get in and out of the costume. Details to follow once a time and place are set.

    There are some more details that will be announced as we get closer to the date. Right now I want to concentrate on getting more people signed up. We should have lots of spare costumes, and we are going to need a few people out of costume to help out in any case. Lets make this a great turn out!!

    Generic Jedi #42??

    Come on John :p

    Makes me sound like the red shirts in Star Trek.

    Does this make me expendable now?

    I could cheat and say, Padawan Qui-Gon lol!

    EDIT: With this 1174 minutes left to edit, I thought why not....John told me teh significance of the number....must not be as expendable as I thought. :)

    Shoot. I was hoping to be generic Jedi #8.5.
    I guess I will have to settle for Jedi #9.
