I am putting in a formal request to anyone that lives within a reasonable distance from Richmond Virginia to bring their droids to our Richmond Christmas Parade on December 4th.
The Droids DO NOT need to be operational, but if they are then that is fine.
We have 1-2 trucks that are going to follow the Freedom Base group down the 2.1 Mile route in our Parade and the droids would be in the bed of the truck.
This event is one of our LARGEST events in the base and we get members from multiple states in attendance.
Over the last couple of years we have had an average of 100,000 to 200,000 persons in attendance along the route and the Parade is televised live that day and then runs on Comcast until mid January.

I have contacted the R2 Builders in DC but most of their members will be attending the Motor City Con.

If there is anyone who can make the trip to Richmond for the day or even come in Friday night, please post and let me know.
There are plenty of CHEAP hotels within a 2-3 mile radius of the route and we all end up going out for dinner the night before.

Typically we have a Leia, a Han, and a few other Face Characters, and this year we will have our 1st Freedom Base Chewie in attendance.

Here is the link to the Parade Site
http://richmondparade.com/
and here is the link to the thread on the Freedom Base boards
http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=25936

Thank you in advance and I really hope that a few droids can make it tot he event.
Please PM me if you need any other info

Joel

BTW...here are a few pics from a previous parade













Protect the Princess at all costs

Ummmm guys....I dont think she needs our protection


RL and 501st together

You may want to post your request on www.astromech.net.

I'm sure if any R2 builders are in the area, they will chime in and let you know.

Nope...not a one Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad
We had a great march but alas, noone wanted to join in our reindeer games or was unable to make it on short notice.

I already have a note into Albin for next year to try and get KT up here. Maybe I can put a bug in the R2 Builders in DC to make sure they put us on the list of appearances next year.
I always think I give enough time, 3-4 months notice, but it always seems that Motor City Con takes them all away.

That's too bad. Sad It's too far for me to come, but I was hoping at least one or two builders in the area could have made it. R2 is always a fan favorite.

No....we didnt have a single one.
As I mentioned above, I put in a call to the R2 builders in DC many months prior to the event and was told that they should be able to spare one, but when it got closer, I was told that they were all planning on going to Motor City Con, which in turn forced me to cancel the truck that I had planned for the carrying of the droids.
Oh well, there is always next year....I guess I should go ahead and put in a request now. Rolling Eyes

bummer....

sorry to hear that you got no one...

even if I had the extra $$...being out on the roads at this time of the year in the lovely Midwest is not really an attractive proposition...lol..

we have had rain, freezin rain, snow, sub-zero temps, drifting snow, and roads closed...
all in a 24 hour time span..

I had the opposite problem for a 4th of July parade. I wanted my R2 to be in it and was told he would, but when I got him out of the van and ready to load onto the truck for the parade I was told it wouldn't work out. Confused Motor City Con in DC?? I've only ever heard of Motor City Comic Con in THE Motor City i.e. Detroit. ???

Not in DC, but the R2DC group was attending a con or the Motor City con in PA that same day
