PostPosted: Tue Oct 23, 2012 1:06 am    Post subject: Holiday Get-Together Anyone? Possible SW Ep.IV,V Guest! Reply with quote

I am proposing an idea for a Holiday Get-Together on either December 15 or 16th in the Frederick or surrounding area.

Why? To get-together and because there is a slight possibility that I will be able to get Steve Cooper to attend. He was in the art department of SW Ep. IV and V, just a few cubicles down from Ralph McQuarrie. He lives in Maryland, but will have limited time home for the holidays, as he will be home from a movie that he is the Art Director for. Most currently, he was the Art Director for X-Men: First Class. His bio- http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0178394/ .

He emailed me and said that he would be interested in an informal get-together with the our base, pending the date and his tight schedule. If not this time, he may be interested in coming to something else in the future, but he is only home for about 3 months of the year. I have met him a few times, exchange emails regarding his films he is working occasionally, and I will be chatting with him again at a party we both attend every year. He has some interesting stories to tell regarding SW behind the scenes.

So, if anyone is interested, please let me know. Also, if you have any ideas for where to have it, please post. I may be able to have it at my house, except space will be a bit crowded, especially if we are in costume. Also, to keep costs low, we could do pot luck for food/bev. Another idea would be to have a fixed value random gift exchange, by just getting something extra from our collections, etc.

Just a thought. If it doesn't happen, no big deal.

Thanks
Dave

I would be interested, but it will depend on what Toys for Tots events we end up having.

I didn't consider that. Being new I have no idea what the Toys for Tots campaign entails. When and where does this usually take place?

Starting around mid Nov. we will start getting a lot of requests for appearances at Toys for Tots events. They haven't come in yet, so we don't know. Is there any other time of year when we could meet him?

I'd love to do it if nothing else just to hang out with people. However does it have to be Frederick? It's a fine town and all but most of us don't live anywhere near there and for some people it's going to be nigh on impossible to get there.

The reason why it was to be Frederick is that Steve Cooper lives in the Frederick area. If I have any chance at getting him to go, we should make it convenient for him.

I am not getting much interest in people doing this, so I am thinking of making this a quasi-Rebel Legion event. By that I mean I may just throw a small party at my home with my local Star Wars friends (most not part of any group, but one a member of the 501st and one Mandos), invite Terrapin Base, a few local "celebrities", and invite Steve. If Steve cannot attend, I can cancel, or if someone wants to take over and have it closer to B'more. If he can attend and I get too many bodies coming, I can look into moving it elsewhere. I also think it will will just be a get-together with snacks (no meal). I am going to email Steve and check on his availablilty.

I really think that the group needs to consider that Frederick is the second biggest metropolitan area in Maryland, and that it is mostly an untapped resource for members and people who could use our charity. Our group is small and could benefit from expanding to other parts of Maryland. I thouht this would be a good way to start.

Thoughts?

Dave

Dave, we actually do several very large events in Frederick every year. Not sure why you think we avoid Frederick? Rachel doesn't drive, so any event is far for her unless one of us is swinging by that way.

Like I told you before, it is a VERY busy season for us. There are already Toys for Tots events popping up, we have the parades, and with it being Dec. we all have family obligations as well. There just aren't enough weekends in Dec. for us to do everything that we want. It's not that we don't want to meet the guy, we're all just already getting swamped with our schedules for the month.

Is he available anytime in Jan? Things usually quiet down for us around that time.

I just emailed him for his availability, but generally he is only home for the holidays and currently is in the middle of shooting a Mark Wahlberg film.

Being new I was not aware of any Frederick events or other members. Sorry, I was just was just trying to stir up interest in my area so I did not feel "Solo" Smile. Are there any members nearby? It is hard to tell as many do not publish their city.

All is good; I will update you when I hear back. My feeling is that this likely will not happen, but I will be seeing him on Dec 26th and will discuss any possible future options.
Ed suggested I put him in for honorary, but I think I probably should have him at an event first. See you at the parade!?

Steve wants to come on the 15th. I will talk to Ed and let you all know if it is going to happen. I am holding off putting him in for honorary, until after we can do this, as this would be his first event.
Thank you,
Dave

Is it ok for me to post this up on the OLG board since I'm sure there are some folks who would like to come that aren't joint members

No. Sorry. It is not a definite yet, and it likely will be at either my home or small location. I was going to get a hall, but only have six commitments so far.
Stay tuned...
Dave
