    Hey Nick, don't worry about the Solo costume, we can alter marty's to make it a Bespin so you won't look exactly the same.

    Right-o. Good thing I'm keeping my hair.
    Hm, I'm listed as a shavee for some reason.

    Well I am obliged to stick with Kevin's head shaving thing so if there is any conflict then that is my priorirty. However, I will also bring along my borrowed Emporer Palpatine costume should I get a chance to come down.

    Here is the update as I promised. The team is glad to have us and is looking forward to seeing us in our costumes and helping the fans have a good time. Everyone who dresses in costume will be given a pass to go to the dressing room area anytime they want, and a ticket so they can sit and watch the game if they so wish.

    The plan is to walk around during the game. If you chose to do so, we can donate our tickets to a local charity and the team will match our contribution. ( We all will have a pass into the game anyways, so why not let a famikly from Ronald McDonald House come by and enjoy the game?) If you are not in costume, you can still come, but will need to purchase a ticket.

    Lastly, the team is open to whatever number of costumeed volunteers want to come. If there are more from Niagara, please let me know asap.

    I need to know who is coming by Sunday night April 20. The team needs me to submit the names of everyone coming so that they can prepare our security passes.

    The team is not limiting the number of Star Wars people, so if more members want to come in costume, you are more than welcome to join us!

    Hi guys-
    Just wanted to say that it would be really cool if you guys could come so we could have a bigger group. Sorry about the duplicate costumes but I think it would be really fun to meet some other star wars fans.
    Hope to see you guys there!!
    (I'm Michelle/battle arena padme btw!)

    Well that's just great. :(

    Well it looks like my other plans will have to be cancelled if I have to be a driver now for the rest to go to Buffalo. Unless Steph is still going and can drive?

    The reason I was a "question mark" was because there is a large NorthEast gathering in Pittsburg this comming weekend. There will be a number of GSA/RSA's traveling to the Comicon that I would like to meet, along with a number of chapters. There is a dinner Saturday night that I was planning on attending.

    There were 3 things that were holding me back: Debby, our Hair Cutting event, the ok from BobaChris to pass on their event, and the ability that you guys can get to Buffalo without me.

    - I ran the idea by Debby and she thinks I should go to Pittsburg :)
    - Our charity event got canceled
    - I talked to Christian and he also wants to go to Pittsburg and said it was ok for me to miss his event.

    - That leaves YJN. I was hoping James would be able to drive, but he can't now. I'm hoping Steph can, but I'm not to sure how comfortable she is driving to Buffalo. And I know Laurie can't drive.

    So I guess I'm S.O.L. for going to Pittsburg if we don't find a driver.

    But there is also the question...
    How do the YJN members feel about me missing this event to go to Pittsburg?
    I've always felt a level of responcibility towards our events or making trips to events put on by others. Bottom line is, I don't want to let anyone down because I'm wanting to do something different.

    Personally it isn't much of a problem for me, as long as I get to go to Buffalo.

    I will see if there is something I can do Chris, since I know how much it means for you to go to Pittsburg!

    So, it looks like this is a go??
    As far as I know, the following will be attending: [ul][li]Chris[/li][li]Laurie[/li][li]Eryn[/li][li]Graeme[/li][li]Nick[/li][li]Andrew[/li][/ul]

    I am thinking to meet at my place (9 Tara Cres. pm me for directions) but I need to determine a time. (1:00?)

    Don't forget for those under 18, you need to bring birth certificate, photo health card, and a note signed by your parents that says Chris has permission to take you across the border.
    Also please bring $5 gas money and any spending money, drinks and snacks you wish (no fruit).

    Any questions or comments, please post. :)

    Have birth certificate and a note, no photo health card though. Never got one of those, and never needed it.

    Also, what is the protocol for the whole bringing somewhat-realistic-weapons-over-the-border thing?

    Do you have some photo ID Nick? A student card or something, just in case they ask?

    As for the weapons thing...I had my Bombad Zam rifle last time...and we just made sure it wasn't really visable going through customs....like we didnt aim it out the window at anyone...we buried it under a bunch of stuff in the hatch...LOL ;)

    Ok, I'll remember that when I need to hide my .5 Desert Eagle under my car seat.


    But seriously, as far as I know, the 2 pieces of paperwork will do.
