I am posting here because not all RL members have accounts set up to access the Mercs Forum.

Since the Mercs have been assigned as the lead goup for the Vestal location, I'll be taking point on this. Please get in contact with me via PM if you plan to attend and what costumes (representing which groups) you will be wearing. Thank you.

I have made contact with the manager of our Barnes & Noble store in Vestal, NY. She is VERY enthusiastic about our involvement, a big fan of SW herself, and even uses lightsabers in her stage combat classes to break the ice. Laughing

The B&N as partnered with UNO’s, in a week-long fundraiser for the local schools that were flooded in last falls hurricane remnant. (Teachers here were rushed out of their schools and not allowed to take any of their supplies – even though the water had not yet reached either area. They lost everything, even personal effects.) The last day of that, not planned, coincides with the SWRD. So this is a way to help several groups nationally and locally.

This is the first time B&N has shared advertising, so you know it's going to be big. Barnes & Noble, UNO's, DK Publishing and Star Wars. An opportunity that does not come along often.

- Vestal, NY location.

- 11am till 5pm.

- If people can be there early, we can help draw attention by milling about the front of the store.

- There will be several activity areas, and she would like one or two costumers to be at each area.

- They will have an area roped off for photographs.

- She would like to have timed switchovers for the activity areas, so that would be an opportunity to change costumes and have a short break. If you are planning to change costumes throughout the day, please be sensitive to their start times so they can restart on time.

- They will have room in the warehouse to store what we need to and to change.

- They will provide water and light snacks.

- Since UNO's is a partner, I would like to make scheduled treks across the parking lot to give UNO's a little attention.

- They anticipate HUNDREDS of people to attend this.

We have eight "signed up" (fingers crossed they all show), and several will change costumes half way through the day. Cool

Had a "final" meeting with the manager. Decided on the the floorplan where different activities will be held, where the reading and photo area will be, etc.


She's had her employees wear their flair off-hours, and that seems to have sparked interest (at the grocery store, resturants, the mall). And has contacted two schools, both with 450+ students in the target age groups... so this could be pretty awesome.

Last night we put a few things in their window...



R2's transport was delayed, so hopefully we can get him in there tonight.

I made two "plugs" to fill the walkway between the window shelf and the back of the bookcase so the BL-17 and R2 would fit. Need to add four inches underneath the Moisture Vaporator's display plinth to get it up to eye level.

Got done with the droid display in front window of the Vestal Barnes & Noble. R2 went on tonight, the others went in Monday night.





Come see the droids for Star Wars Reads Day, Saturday at the Vestal Barnes & Noble!!

Because the event at B&N will be fairly non-stop, there won't be an opportunity to leave and walk over to UNOs.

So, anyone who can stay past 5pm... they would like some of us to go over to UNOs for a photoshoot with their employees afterwards.

Album from the event is up (103 photos):

The opening shift.


My pal Zeke.


Shhhhhhh...


Kids lined up for "lightsaber training" with your host, Darth Vader.
(The "baseball swing" was popular. Just glad the B&N suppllied the $10 lightsabers.)


A quick break for a swing-shift group shot.


One of two R2's that attended.


Couldn't end the day without force-choking an employee.
(I find your lack of Nook disturbing...)
