I'll be there. Last year was my first year to visioncon, but did the RL have a photoshoot time? Do we want to schedule a time for everyone to get together in our various rebel costumes and do a group shot and thus encourage convention goers to gather and take pics; make a presense of ourselves.

That sounds like a great idea, Chris. I would love to set that up and get some good pictures from the event. We will have a bigger RL presence than ever before at the convention so this is a good opportunity to do this.

Sound good to me. I don't have a panel scheduled but we can do it Friday evening sometime. I do know Squad 66 does there photo shoot on Saturday after their panel. Any other suggestion.

Head's up, folks. The hotel has been sold to new owners and is now a Howard Johnson's. Everyone needs to call them up and make sure you still have your reservations. I think the phone number is still the same, but I'll find out tomorrow morning when I call to check on my room.

Just got off the phone with the new hotel and was told there is no need to do anything with reservations. Everything switched over to the new name automatically.

See you all next month.

Squad 66 had their first precon meeting last night. There was a suggestion about the Rebel Legion selling (get out of jail free cards). After talking with serveral member a great idea has come up. We will sell "Jedi Mind Trick" card for $5. All proceeds go to charity. This is a one time use card. The person being arrested will either wave the card in front of the worden saying "I'm not the trash master your looking for" (or what ever the charge is) the worden will them say "You are not the trash master we're looking for" and take the card. If they are in Jail already we "Rebel Legion Members" will send someone over in Jedi robes and do the same. Will put all our money in together and present it as one.


Comments???

I beleave Friday night will be the best time to do the photo shoot. Will everyone be there by then.

I think that is a great idea to help raise some extra money and adding it all in together at the end from both groups is great. Sounds like a lot of fun as well to get some good interaction between everyone and the crowd.

I'm ok with Friday night if everyone will be there for sure. I know I'll be there probably in the afternoon that day.

I do not know how early I will be there on Friday. I have a friend coming down with me, and he may or may not be able to get off work on Friday, then by the time we drive down from KC ... So can't say for certain right now.

Sounds good. I have some generic Jedi Mind Trick Cards left over from Archon this year. They go not have an con info on them.

I also agree our our charitable endeavors should be submitted jointly. Smile

I am going to try to be there Friday early afternoon for set up. The only hiccup is if Karissa cannot get the day off.

I'll be bringing the banner down for the convention. I know last year we had a pretty good amount of table props and Bill has some stuff as well. Do we need further props? I can bring down some extra stuff as well, but don't want to have an overwhelming amount.

Also do we already have some fliers ready to go or would you like me to bring those? I can print them off here at work and bring a folder full.
