    The North Ridge has been invited back to help out with the pregame festivities before the April 26 game at 7 PM. We will be dressed in costume and offering digital 5x7 pictures for $5 with the proceds going to the Boys and Girls Club. The fans loved us a few weeks ago and we were a big hit.

    I am offering an invite to our friends of the Great White North to come down, in costume, and have some fun with us. You would need to be at the HSBCArena by no later than 5:00 PM on te 26th and be ready to go in costume by 5:30. How about it eh? You can just respond to this thread or PM me. I will fill you in on more information as it becomes available. We willl have a free ticket into the game. Tickets are also available for friends at $15 each in the 100 level.

    Padme would very much like to attend if she can get the day off work. *picks up blaster and heads to local bookstore* :D

    edit: *goes to humour section and picks up large volume of American jokes and insults" 8-}

    Thanks for the invite, but unfortunately I am unable to attend because I am taking part in an Olympic power lifting workshop that Saturday afternoon.
    Hopefully next time.

    What are the times for the game? Maybe we can do both??

    Sent this to BobaChris12:
    Just wanted to know more information on the event you have invited us to.
    First, is this a hockey game? a football game?, a ping pong tournament?, a jousting match? LOL Are the teams local?, regional?,college?...and who should we be cheering for? Would we be meeting at someone's house to get into costume?...or doing it at the arena? Besides pictures, what else does the pre-game show involve?
    Will we be going to someone's home after?

    We would love to come, but it may be tight with this hair shaving for charity event going on here that day.

    This is the reply:
    The Buffalo Destroyers are a local professional indoor football team. There will be a room designated for us to get into costume. The last time we were there, the guys had to step outside while the girls changed and vice versa. The pregame is held in the main vestibule of the arena. If it is chilly outside, then the chill tends to linger by the main doors, but gets warmer the further you move away from them. We were in the middle last game and did not find it cold at all.

    As far as post game goes, we are working on the details now. Most of us have very small houses or apartments that would make it a very cramped party.

    There will be about 13 of us going to the game. We will have a Vader, Biker Scout, Stormtrooper, ANH Leia, Arena Battle Padme, Han Solo, Imperial Officer, and some mixed Jedi.

    The team wants us to be ready to go in costume by 5:30. The game starts at 7 and we will be walking around in the arena, or we can sit and watch the game. I am meeting with the team this week and will pass on more information as it becomes available. I wanted to give you as much notice as possible to give you a better chance of making it.

    Sounds very interesting, but that list does knock out like 4-5 of the costumes we (YJN) have.

    I have no idea if this will clash with the head shave event. I don't mind going to the game, but am curious how late ppl think it will run due to the fact that I will probably have 2-3 kids with me. Oh... where would the seats be? (height wise)

    Wow! That is really neat! I'd love to come down in costume, but my last exam is on the 28th and I'll probably be working that weekend as well. Good luck though!

    I sent some questions over to BobaChris...
    in regards to tickets, end time, and such... I thought I could at least share the info with you guys.

    >>>The game should end no later than 10 PM. There is a parking ramp attached to the arena that we could park in. Since we will be arriving at the arena early, we will get the prime spots.

    The tickets are for sale for anyone who wants to bring some friends. If you are volunteering to help, you will be given a pass to get into the game. We can it down for a while and get up and walk around at half time.

    The unofficial age limit for the event is 16. What ages are you inquiring for? Keep in mind that the tables will be set up in the main vestibule just outside the main gate. It tends to get a little crowded and little children could be lost easily.

    I'll get back to you on the duplicate costumes. What costumes are duplicates?<<<<



    Doesn't seem like our family will be going over the river for this one. If my guys ever got lost I would freak, so I think we'll sit this one out. Oh... I did send him another message about parking cost, so noone gets surprised. Last time I have to park for an event in Buffale it was like $10. us. not a huge deal, if ya know you have to pay it out.:)

    Have fun all those who are going though :D.

    Well, if they have ANH Leia and a Battle Padme already...looks like Eryn will have to be Zam (if she goes) and I will have to be Senate Gown Amidala (grrrrr).

    What will you do Nick, if there's a Han Solo already?? (Any chance of borrowing the stormtrooper armour?...you looked great in that)

    Well I have a couple options:

    1. See if the Wook will let me borrow the fur.

    2. Go as Han anyway

    3. Beg/Borrow/Steal another male costume

    The Zam costume would be a big hit as would the Wookie..if you could borrow it Nick. If not, I am sure we could work something out.

    Sorry nick, my costume will be unavailable because it will be on me, for I will be attending this event. I do have some Jedi robes if someone would like those.

    I would like to go in my new costume but that depends if I find the right stuff and how much work I might have to do. So I guess I should plan for my rainbow outfit.
