Okay. I called Jo-Beth yesterday and talked to their events coordinator. She seemed to think they could accomodate my tauntaun and me, so I'm planning to attend this, since it is so close to where I live. I'll know definitely in a couple of weeks, (I have to see about my work schedule) but I'm planning on going to this. I figure the kids would like it, having their photos made and such.........

Will do. I have enough of my "tauntaun team" going with me this time to take lots of photos, maybe even video.

Looking forward to it.......

"Rode" the tauntaun today at Joseph-Beth. Had help from a good friend. We switched off as riders, due to it being so hot and me being sick. But we made it. Will post pics soon.........

Tauntaun was well-received, so I would say it was a successful mission....

Thanks guys. A good deal of credit goes to my friend, Sara, who was the real trooper that day. She spent the bulk of the time in the costume. (We should make her an honorary member!)

Only one little kid actually got scared, but I was sitting on a footstool and told him to come around the back of the tauntaun and I showed him how she was standing in the stilts and he was okay after that. Some kids thought it was a robot. One little boy told Sara that SHE was supposed to be a boy (I guess since they see Luke riding it in the film) and Sara said "Tauntaun riders can be girls too!" Then I told him that the tauntaun itself was a girl.......I think we blew his mind.

I'm just glad we didn't scare any kids....I always worry about that.

Now for a long session of repairs over the next few months......the tauntaun broke in 3 places!!! Take the good with the bad I guess........ Razz

Costumes or props are never finished. They always need tweaking time to time. However, my friend you did an awesome job with the event.
