PostPosted: Mon Sep 24, 2012 9:45 am    Post subject: NER Invite: iPlay America Event, 12/2/12 - Freehold, NJ Reply with quote

We have been asked to put together a super huge event to be held at "iPlay America", which is an indoor amusement park in Freehold, NJ. They are planning a special day for children's charities and would like to make it a Star Wars themed event. We are working closely with them to make it as cool as possible and will be looking to all our members as well as our sister Garrisons and the Rebel Legion to help supply a large amount of characters in hopes to make this a day to remember for the kids :thumbsup_anim:/>

It will be well organized, with an initial meet and greet buffet with the attendees before the actual event, where we can pose for some pictures and start getting them excited, lol. We will also help them fill some time with a trivia quiz. After the luncheon we'll then spread out amongst the park to specific areas, where they will have Star Wars themed tasks incorporated in the rides and games. We will help cheer the kids on while they complete their tasks and of course interact some more and let them take pictures. The theme, so to say, is that we as the Empire have taken over the park, and the kids must do their tasks (go on rides hahaha) to become Jedi and help take the park back from us evil guys Wink/>

Don't worry, we had a long discussion about our agreement with LFL and our rules against "actual" type training with the park, they understand and don't want us to actually do anything other then wander in the areas looking cool and generating excitement. Preliminary planning has the park split up in 4 different stations, where the kids will complete said tasks on their way to becoming Jedi Knights. One will be a Lego X-Box station where they must defeat a level to move on. Another is the laser tag arena. The other two are looking like Go-Carts and Bumper Cars. Our members will switch out as needed.

As you can see this is one of the biggest events we've tried to staff in NJ so we would really appreciate some help from everyone on it. The park will provide us with a separate and private area with food, beverages and area to change and store our belongings. They will also provide free access to the event and park for any of our family members (and kids) that want to come along. Parking is also free for everyone.

They will be donating part of their total proceeds to a charity they choose, and then also to one that we choose. We have chosen the NJ Hurricane Relief fund.

This is still on and getting closer. We would love some Rebel support and can also use some spotters Wink

We're also going to make our charity the NJ Hurricane Relief fund, so please come help us out with this as it's very close to home for many of us.

I'm finalizing details with our liaison, they would love a good mix of characters obviously including Chewbacca, Leia, Droids etc... If anyone can make this we would love you forever!!!

We're also sorting out our roles, as stated we'll have a photobackdrop set up for pictures with the attendees, and our members will then split into groups at the various stations in the theme park. A few will be involved with the laser tag, most likely something to the effect of an Officer (with a laser tag vest and gun) along with a few TKs stationed at one spot in the area (not running around and actively participating, more like stationary targets for effect). If we can get some more good guys we can work it out so the other side has the equivelant.

Very Happy

I've switched my costume to Jedi so I can assist in some things, and Jedi will be involved in both some of the missions as well as roaming and other activities with the kids. In the beginning we'll be addressing the group at the luncheon and getting them excited about the event

I've drafted a list, we have three stations and each station we'll need troopers there for about 45 minutes and then we'll switch out. We'll also have a group roaming during each time frame. Everyone will get a chance to participate in each activity (obviously pending the ability to actually do it).

The fourth activity is going to be a version of Shoot-a-Trooper and we'll need at least 4 armored and 1 soft costume to man it, along with a spotter (or iPlay assistant to gather darts).

I've made it so everyone gets to go to each event, as well as a roaming time where they can take a break. Obviously if you need to take a break at anytime feel free to grab a spotter or non-bucket guy and let them know. THIS EVENT IS IN CHARACTER AND BUCKETS ON AT ALL TIME (unless emergency).

Again, on Sunday morning when we are getting ready we will go over all this, and if there is anything a member can't do or wants to do extra of we can tweak the lists accordingly. Some of the activities we'll have to pre-check if guys can get into them or not. I don't want helmeted or obstructed vision guys going go-karts or bumper cars as a safety thing. We'll also check to see who can get vests over their stuff for laser tag.

PLEASE BE ON TIME 8:30A. We only have one and a half hours from then to event start to go over all this, which will include the walk through of the park and determining what guys can or can't do. And get ready Wink

You guys all got my cell, but if you don't
