Update- According to our LCO it is possible that this event is rescheduled for Sept. 13th at 12 noon-2:00pm. This is still not yet definite, more to follow.

Fellow Terps-

We have a Legion wide formal event coming our way from Pottery Barn Kids. The info is below from our fearless LCO-

Mark Fordham wrote:
PBK just called and two of their products are delayed, so they need to move our in-store appearances back. The primary date is now Sept 13th. That is still a Saturday, and the events are still noon to 2pm. If our 501st unit can't troop a store on the 13th, we will try to set it up for the 20th or the 27th (both Saturdays as well). So I'll still need to give you dates once we've confirmed them ourselves.

US and Canadian COs:

I don't have a lot of information yet about this b/c I am still waiting on the email from Mark Fordham. I've got some info from Mary Franklin and from the CO out here in Bloodfin Garrison, but I need to let the COs know that this is coming and to start to prepare for it just in case.

We have been requested to do a 2hr meet-n-greet at the Pottery Barn for Kids stores in North America to help them launch their new line of Star Wars merchandise. They are requesting 2 bad guys (Vader and a stormtrooper) and two good guys (one of which will come from the Rebel Legion and one of which will come from the Jedi Assembly). Where an RL or JA member cannot be provided by their clubs, a 501st member with a good guy costume may substitute. Where a stormtrooper is not available, an Imperial officer or other Imperial costume may be substituted.

They would like to do as many stores as possible on the 23rd of August. If we cannot troop a store on the 23rd, they would like them done on the earliest Saturday possible in September. [The 501st has] the difficulty of providing a Vader for each event, so we will set the date according to [their] availability, and then notify the RL and JA of the confirmed appearance date. Please refer to the Excel spreadsheet below for locations and other info. NOTE: the first 10 stores on the spreadsheet are the highest priority and least flexible so far as the date is concerned. The next 20 (in orange) are the next highest priority. The remainder simply need to be done when we can do them (by the end of September).

YOU DO NOT NEED TO CONTACT YOUR LOCAL STORE. The corporate office is doing this for you. Once they have made the appropriate notifications, I’ll let you know that you are at liberty to contact your local store. They will be doing pre-advertisements regarding your appearance, and will be providing you with things to hand out to the kids. Their target age group is 6-8 year olds, so you shouldn’t have that many (if any) teenagers.

This is a very nice, short, and easy event that can provide great contacts and exposure for the future. Please make your best effort to make this happen. If for some reason you cannot provide a Vader and/or other Imperial, please contact me ASAP. If you cannot troop the high priority stores on the 23rd, please contact me ASAP.

One final note, they are looking into bringing in an R2 unit for some of these appearances. That may or may nor happen.

- If you have a location in the first 10 of the spread sheet, it is a HIGH priority, and you need to be able to do it August 23rd, noon to 2pm.
- if you have a location in the yellowed in area (next 20 stores), they are a MEDIUM priority, and we should make our best effort to try to do them on August 30th, noon to 2pm.
- all of the stores below the yellow are LOW priority. That shouldn't be read as completely optional. They are simply stores that can be done anytime in September (though sooner is better than later in the month). If you can knock these stores out on the 23rd of August, please do. If you can't (but can get them in September) awesome.

Keep in mind that the tentative date for this is now September 13th. I will update as I hear more from Legion Command.

We also have the Walk with Isaac for Osteogenesis Imperfecta on the the 13th of September and I will be attending this. The Pottery Barn event is only asking for one member from Terrapin for each of the two locations. Can anyone commit to the Pottery Barn locations?
