    [hl=red]OK folks, this is very important![/hl]

    The [link=http://dragobit.com/ffo/]FanForce Ontario IMAX page[/link] has now been updated with the showtimes for the initial weekend.

    Basically we are going to need people who can be available for up to 13 different showings over 4 days!

    We are not expecting people to volunteer for every show! We don't want everyone for every show frankly. We are figuring we need a minimum of 4 people in costume per show, anyone else is bonus and too many people can get confusing.

    What we need from you is this. Visit the website, look at the times for all the shows.

    Tell us (by replying here) what shows you can help , what costume, and who if anyone you want to be paired up with (Like Han and Chewie, Vader and a Guard, etc)

    We need to know now. If we do not see a reply here we are going to assume you are not able to attend! So please reply.

    Please use this message thread only to discuss volunteering for show, arranging rides etc.

    If you wish to discuss the planning of the event itself, the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=9268700]place for that is here[/link].

    I am free for the premiere,and am most likely free for all events that it says are planned, and none of them are during class.I would like to be paired with Chewbacca when that is possible. My dad has also volunteered to give rides.
    Are we all supposed to be at the premiere?

    I could do the Sat shows (any of them)
    I can do the Sun shows (except 9:40)

    Since these are likely the best times I could also do the fri afternoon or even shows although I would prefer not to miss class but if you need people i can do it

    I will be wearing Padme rainbow-I don't have a pref to be paired with anyone

    Well like Nick I can do the premiere show, and most likely will be able to do all other shows. I of course will be in my Boba Fett costume. As for pairing up, I think I'd like to go with Vader.

    Well, I'd love to help out, my only concerns are money, and school.

    Other than that, I'm good to go.

    If there is any before hand work I can do, I'll gladly do it.

    Right now, I can go for the Premiere, and any shows on Saturday and Sunday. I work Friday evening, but have Wednesday off and will try to switch with someone so I can be available Friday as well.

    I can come as Senate Gown Amidala, Battle White Amidala or Zam Wesell (don't think Eryn or Mal want to participate)

    Will Leigh or Steph be needing costumes and hair done?

    To NICK: Your car only holds 5 people max. My van holds 7 plus a bit more "costume" space (rooftop carrier if needed). I sure don't want to drive, but your dad is more than welcome to drive my van if that will help.

    Like I said, this is extremely important. We need to work out a schedule to cover 3 theatres and 13 shows. We also need to work it into the schedule with volunteers from London, Toronto, the 501st and perhaps the Rebel Legion!!

    This can be a nightmare, so that is why we need to know who can show and when. No maybes!

    The list so far: (assume myself (John) and Chris will be at every show where there are others)

    Thursday, October 31st, Hallowe'en 10pm show:
    Nick, Graeme, Laurie, Andrew C

    Friday, November 1st:
    Nick, Graeme, Andrew C

    Saturday, November 2nd:
    Nick, Graeme, Steph, Laurie

    Sunday, November 3rd:
    Nick, Graeme, Steph (except 9:40), Laurie, Andrew C (please confirm this)

    Mitch, as you can tell I need dates and times.

    People not available that weekend:
    Dana (et al), and Leigh

    Jason? Jay? Crystal? Andrew M? Stef? Bayley? Everyone else lurking? We need to know ASAP please. Even if all you can do is come for one show, thats great! It will give someone else a break.

    Don't forget though John...it's not too easy for someone just to come for one show...it IS Toronto after all, and most people will be relying on a driver who will in all likelihood be there for the day. Not to be contrary, just a thought towards the practical.

    I can't come at all. I have a fencing tournament in Kingston that weekend. Thursday night from 5:30-7:30 I have a manditory training session with work, then from 7:30-9:00 I have my last fencing practice before the tournament. Then we leave on friday.

    I hope you all have a good time :(

    John:

    Just to clarify I can do Sat OR Sun but not both-I think I miscommunicated that

    I'd do both but I still have lots of homework

    Please put me down for whichever date you need people

    Keep em coming folks, need to get as big a list as possible.

    Just one clarification.. just because there are 13 shows total over the weekend we may not be there for all of them. For example, Friday afternoon is probably bad for most people with work and school, so we may miss those 2.

    But still we need to know when you can be available so then we can best decide where and when YJN members will be.

    I hope we have all the volunteers in soon so we can discuss this on Sunday

    I won't be there in costume, but can be a helper on thursday night and possibly saturday. I know you don't want "maybes", but atleast you know I can consider it.

    Okay, I should be good to go on friday. Thats the only day I know for sure I have off of work, and I just have one class that I can most likely miss.

    The Only thing is that I'll most likely need a ride since I doubt I will be able to drive to Toronto...

    I can be there on Thursday.

    I really need to know something though.
    This maybe a stupid question but:

    WE DO GET TO SEE THE MOVIE, RIGHT?

    Even if we're in costume in stuff, helping out.

    Yes, but the theater is not being very giving...We have to pay full price, we get no "goodies", and we have to pay for parking if we go to Paramount.
