The MG has invited the MB for this event.

Event Name: Fourth of July Monument Parade
Venue address: Monument, CO 80132
Event Start: 7/4/2012 - 8:30am ish
Event End: 7/4/2012 - 11:30am ish
Expected number of attendees: 12,000
Requested number of characters: as many as possible
Secure changing/staging area: No
Comments: Fourth of July parade walking down the streets of Monument. Good time and fun exposure. The 501st has done this once for me before. I would like to make this Modern bigger and better with more characters.
Referred by: I am a big fan and have been to all the Celebrations.


Now, since this is pretty much in my backyard, I'm going Wink Anyone who also wants to congregate at my place beforehand and minimize vehicles to the staging area, can do so!

For those unfamiliar with Monument, there is also a huge FREX parking area that could be utilized if you get there early enough. As tiny as Monument is, the traffic can become an utter nightmare as a result of the parade!

MB POC: Shana

Rebel Roster:
Shana (Leia)
Tony (Jedi)
Hugh (RFT or ERS)
Mireya (Padawan)
Hewitt (Clone Cadet)
Ari (Handler)
7)
Cool

Awesome.

I can also walk from my place to downtown Monument just to time the distance and how long it takes so walking may be an option for those who may not want to deal with parking and traffic.

I also do not know exactly where the staging area will be. I will need to find this out!

In addition, anyone who wants a secure place to suit up may do so in our home.

I have family coming over for vacation during this and they would love to participate in the parade. They will be wearing one of my five costumes (two 501st / three RL).Thus I will have two or three more bodies participating in the parade if OK’d.

Had a meeting with the Coordinator, Warren, today. Here is the updated info.

Date: 7/4/12
Time: 10 am parade starts
Show time: 7:45-8 am at King Soopers parking lot Baptist Rd.
Slot: We will step off at #31
Changing: Secured changing in the staging area in Warrens RV. We can also keep our totes there until the desuiting.
Weapons: OK
Banners: OK
Handlers: OK to have people there to hold banners only. All others are requested to be costumed.
Route: 1 mile taking approximately 20-30 min.

The Parade is still on. If you are available, please sign up. The parade is currently in the pre-evac zone but our brave fire fighters and others are keeping the fire back. The fire is 10% contained.

With this fire going on and the expectation of 100% containment not till July 15th, lets put a smile on some of our neighbors. Dan, Shana and I will keep you all inform of any changes.

Sorry guys, with my asthma I'm not taking the chance of having an attack down there in the middle of a parade. Have fun, make smiles.
