We have been asked to participate in the St Patrick's parade in Naperville IL.

from the EC at MWG, Steve Gaza:

The West Suburban Irish has once again contacted and requested the presence of the Mighty 501st!!! We have little more time to plan this time!!!!! Tee hee. Last year, with very short notice, we put together an impressive showing. Let's blow them out of the water again!!! This will be the 20th anniversary of the parade!!!
Registration has already been submitted and we are signed up for 20 troopers (more is fine) and one vehicle.

When: Saturday, March 16, 2013 ---10:00 AM
Where: Naperville Central High School south parking lot.
Details will be updated, Gaza is willing to have everyone over to his house around 8AM to assemble and repack cars/trucks for carpooling to the parade area.
A map of the parade route and to Gaza's house will be posted in a future update.

I will update info as it is posted.

UPDATES

UPDATE!!!! 2/12/2013 http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ll=41.746287,-88.128991&spn=0.026224,0.045576&t=h&z=15 Gaza's house is at 33 Bunting Ln. On the map, it is in the first cul-de-sac behind the Napervill Congregational Church at the southwest corner of 75th and Washington.
http://www.naperville.il.us/emplibrary/Special_Events/2013StPatricksDayParade-TCP.pdf Unless anything changes, red marks the parade route. It is suggested to find a parking spot near the end of the parade route on a nearby sidestreet.
UPDATE: 3-5-2013 Please arrive at Naperville North High School between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. The Parade starts promptly at 10:00 am. If you do not plan on going to Gaza's house and carpooling, there will be limited parking at the school. It is recommended to carpool, or have someone drop you off at the school. I will be posting our line number when I receive it on the 8th. You will need this if you come to the school alone.
UPDATE!!!!!! 3-8-2013 Our official line-up position number has been announced. We are #41 in the parade line-up!!!!
UPDATE: 3-11-2013. Cheryl Whitaker has volunteered to arrive at the school by 8 AM with her parade vehicle and to be our parade base. You have the option to drop your costume off at base (highly recommended) or continuing on to Gaza's house to shuttle from there. We want to limit the back and forth trips from Gaza's house to base. If you have a large vehicle and are willing to do some shuttling, please do. We are trying to eliminate the need for troopers to walk from their cars to base. An extra driver who is NOT in the parade would be a plus. We will be gone from Gaza's house by 8:45 so plan accordingly!!

ouch...
bummer...
parades are no good for backs...

Looks like I am pretty much a "go" for the parade tomorrow...I checked with the other two chainsaw operators and it looks like both Don and Rod will be sawing at the workday tomorrow...so they should be able to keep up with the other volunteers without my chainsaw...

With the weather being pretty cold, I might wear the Snowspeeder Pilot...it will be one of the few opportunities to wear that costume as the jacket - where thin- is like wearing a plastic bag and I about exploded from heat wearing it for like 10 minutes indoors...lol...
and...with it looking like there will be only two Rebels...I guess I need to go with recognizeable...
I was going to wear Hoth Trench Trooper ....but....don't get much reaction with that costume...
