Unfortunately, I gotta work. And this upsets me because I love Frank Cho's work. University2 is one of my all time favorites and glad it carried into Liberty Meadows. The autograph hound in me is crying...but I gotta pay the bills.

If someone goes, could they try to get an autograph for me? Maybe a sketch of a Tusken Raider (or if he knows who A'Sharad Hett is)?

Uh, if Frank Cho is charging his usual prices for sketches I doubt that'll be possible for someone else to pick up the price on that.

Though Charles, if you want. If you've got any issues of the comics or trades or anything you'd like signed, I'm more then happy to meet up with you and pick them up and have them sign them for you Smile

I'm going, just on the 501st side even though that event sign up isn't up yet.

The event organizer for this wants us to do a Shoot-A-Trooper booth. It looks like we are just shy of all the materials we need to pull this off. We need a lot more Nerf Clip System Darts, a broom and a long-handled dustpan, and of course volunteers. I'd also like some extra D batteries for the automatic blasters.

Do we have a backdrop? Last I heard, money was donated, but I have not seen a confirmation that it was purchased. Granted, I may have missed the post, but can you confirm if the backdrop was purchased?

Kellie ordered the backdrop. The printer has a back-log but should be able to get it to us in time. He apparently is shipping the Shoot-A-Trooper banner now.

We raised funds for a backdrop banner for photos, not one to be shot at. Ray himself paid for a shoot a trooper banner.

What is the status of the photo backdrop Kellie?

I am sorry for the confusion, but it really wasn't spelled out any where on the forum what has happened or that there were 2 backdrops.

It's just nerf darts. It's not like we're firing pellets or anything hard at it. I'd worry more about someone tripping and falling into it then a nerf dart hurting it.

Oh, for those of you who aren't part of the 501st, looks like we're going to have a Friend of the Legion (501st side) induction there to. So another reason to look forward to it

This is something I'd totally love to do. However, that's way at the end of the semester for me, so I have no idea what that's going to look like. I shall keep it on my radar though.

Chris, you must have missed Ray's post here with the status.

Thank you for the clarification Ray and Kellie! Smile

Since I had not seen any word on the backdrop situation since Kellie last posted that the paperwork had been submitted back in September and I hadn't seen anything posted about a separate backdrop for the Shoot-a-Trooper, it was a bit confusing! Glad the project is moving forward! Smile

So for those of you who aren't joint members, no Shoot a Trooper at the show. Something to do with the whole mass shooting up in CT and them not wanting to have guns shooting people here. I understand but it stinks anyway.

Also, there WILL be a Friend of the Legion induction for the 501st there.

And if anyone wants a ride down to it that maybe needs to use the metro, I can snag you. I can only take 1 other person since I will probably have another OLGer that I will most likely be picking up from the Metro to.
