I need help spreading the word. The Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver, BC has designated Sunday, 26 Aug 07 as Star Wars day. In fact, the 501st and Rebel Legion have been assigned the honour of Grand Marshall for the two parades held on the Exhibition grounds that day.

I need costumers! Only eight BC members have thus far signed on, and all of them are from Vancouver Island?! (Something wrong with this picture)

We already have a Darth Vader and a Luke, plus Jedi and a couple of troopers. We desperately require the following:

Leia
Padme
Obi-wan
Palpatine (pre or post Revenge)
Han Solo
Droids --- if available
Ewoks, Sandpeople, Jawas, bounty hunters are all welcome as long as they are “canon” figures (those the general public will recognize from the
movies)
Stormtroopers - if you're playing both sides of the universe
Imperial officers
Rebels

The more the merrier. If you have anyone willing to come up to troop at the PNE, PLEASE have them contact me through the Victoria, BC boards ASAP. I need numbers no later than end July so I can work out food and re-hydration details, not to mention parking, with the organizers. Children are welcome, as long as they are in costume.

Should there be any difficulties in contacting me through the boards, I am willing to share my personal e-mail address on the limited basis with a singular contact point. Mary Franklin has been apprised and is looking forward to an article, plus photos for Bantha Tracks, so if there are any budding/experienced journalists out there, PLEASE come too. Thanks.

M.T.F.B.W.Y.

I may be out of town cheering a friend on at Iron Man that day.

I will see if any VCon/BC RenFest folks can make it (a small few of them have SW costumes).

I have extended an invitation to Alpha Base, our brothers to the south in the hope of boosting the numbers.

I have one non member willing to wear a bucket and armor, provided someone respond to an email.

I may have one extra non member for inclusion depending on costume fit.

Would Love to help you out with My wife as a Jedi and I am Old Ben. But sorry to say we do not have the funds for gas and hotel and may not be able to get off work for Monday after Sad

I do wish you luck for a great event and a fun day Smile

The parade is on the Sunday. There are actually two: one is in the afternoon, the second in the evening. We're going to receive coupons for food, water for rehydration and permission to hand out flyers (which I've generated and will print) to advertise the RL and 501st. Presently we only have bodies for the afternoon parade, which is a genuine shame.
If you have any friends who might be interested in helping out but lack costumes, please direct them our way. I have at least one more costume to loan out (Ladies 12-16, 5'6" - 5'9" --- should have own boots).
