I can do that...I'm good at pimping the clubs. ROTF

I'll be there at the Concord store on Oct. 29th at 4:00 PM, with lightsabers on in full force. Who cares if the store is empty. It's being in costume, playing and making representation that matters the most. It will draw crowds, if anything. Very Happy

Matt or Roberto - do you want to give us a quick run down (for historical purposes) of what went on at the San Mateo location?

Robin or Scott, could you type up a tiny mission report. Nothing too elaborate if you just don't have time or energy, just something for our records and if there is a set of photos out there feel free to link to it Wink

Kathy, do you want it posted here or in the Mission Report forums? And can you put the photos in the GGG members gallery/or your Image Event? I'm having trouble logging in to the GGG Members gallery and with my Photobucket account.

Well, since your location Matt was supported more by GGG than RL (you and Roberto) I think a mission report here is fine.... I guess Roberto represented both clubs in a way.

FYI - for the future, I'd like all mission reports cross posted here (not just a link but actually copy and paste the entire report) for our records. I'm not sure how much is being archived on the main forums Smile

I was just about to ask what you wanted done with those photos. I'll upload them to GGG for you.

Mission Report:

Event: Spirit Halloween Store
Location: 1880 S. Grant St., San Mateo, Ca
Date: 10/29/09
Time: 4 - 6 pm


Rebel Legion Members Attending:

Roberto Moran - Anakin


GGG Members Attending:

Matt Tolosa - TI


Mission Details:

I arrived at the location just before 4 pm (I had underestimated the traffic due to the Bay Bridge closure). Upon entering the store, I asked an employee to see the manager. When they said "For what?", I said to myself, "I have a bad feeling about this". I was told the manager was at the bank at the moment, so I was given someone else's attention to answer my question. They thought we were supposed to be there tomorrow, and wanted to know what we'd be doing for them. So they called the district manager. While I was waiting, Roberto showed up, already suited up.

We were then told to hand out flyers to promote their "Halloween Party" that was to be held at midnight the next day. Roberto and I at first wandered the store doing this, but eventually situated ourselves primarily near the front of the store, either outside or inside right by the doors. That way, we figured, would be the best chance to hand out the flyers as they came in, or to give them to people who were on their way out who didn't get them.

After about 45 minutes, I took a breather in the back, but realized there was no water for us. Just a note to everyone - just because an event says that water will be provided, bring one anyway. As time went on, I realized that no one had taken any pictures with us, or even called me Darth Vader! Were we in another dimension? So I decided if no one was going to take pictures, then we would, so Roberto took photos to record the event for the last 20 minutes.

All in all, I wish there was more to this event, both in planning and execution on the part of Spirit. But we tried to make the most of what we were given and told.

Pictures coming soon.
