NFBlvd crew: There is a plan to meet for coffee and a light snack at 10:30am at Tim Horton's at NFB/I-290 before meeting at 11:15am in the parking lot to go in together.

After extensive planning this week, in person with the manager I think we have our set gameplan for tomorrow. The store management team was impressed by the level of planning and person attention that we have shown them in partnering for this event.

This will be an awesome event because of the awesome people involved!

Any questions, please call my cellphone.

My thanks to everyone involved!

The event went really well! We even got a new Jedi recruit from the event and I look forward to seeing them again in the future!

On behalf of The Rebel Legion, Echo Base and The 501st, Garrison Excelsior I want to personally thank Kathleen & Norma From The North Ridge FanForce for their invaluable assitance today running the craft tables! Awesome work guys!


It's really great to see all three groups work together and get such good results.

The Management of the store was very impressed with our performance today!


Mission report and pictures to follow.

We began by handing out "Galactic Passports" to all of the kids who came for the event, and they were instructed to go through the store and locate the 4 Star Wars characters hidden and get their passport stamped.







Once they had all of the stamps the kids were cleared to go to the craft tables.





We did Trivia, and then a special guest came and read a story to all of the kids about space travel.




Yes, I know it's not a Star Wars book, but that's what my daughter asked me to bring home for her...


It was a great showing and we kept the kids engaged the entire time, I saw more than a few kids heading to checkout with new Star Wars books...


Thank you to:
Barnes & Noble
DK Publishing
Lawrence Tetewski - Jedi
Janice Mergenhagen - Emperor Palpatine & Han Solo
Dan Malcolm - Snowtrooper
Bill Breindel - Jedi recruit for Echo base
Norma and Kathleen from the North Ridge FanForce for running the craft tables and keeping the kids entertained.

Without all of the hard work of everyone involved this event could not have been possible. It's really great to see all three groups work together and get such good results. The store is already looking forward to doing this again next year with us!
