ADDITIONAL TIDBITS OF INFORMATION:

Here is a photo of one of the parking lots (the library building is on the right in this photo)
- we are trying to secure a second lot as there is only room for 25 cars in this lot.
This lot is on the corner of Chicago and Clinton Streets.




This is a photo of the building we will be using to change/stage and hydrate-the address is 116 North Chicago




If you arrive early and are looking for a place for breakfast, one of the places I can HIGHLY recommend is the Joliet RTE 66 Diner right across Clinton Street from the Library and right next to the parking lot. They will have all sorts of Star Wars posters and will be featuring a Star Wars menu. We had lunch there today and it is very good stuff. The "Blue Milk" is said to be an extraordinary fresh blueberry milkshake.









Also, of note....
If you are coming with someone who is not so interested in Star Wars, remember that the Joliet Historical Museum will be open for free to all those with a lanyard on and here are some photos from parts of the inside of the Museum:

The Houboult Exhibit



The I & M Canal Exhibit:



The Joliet Iron Works Exhibit:



and there is much more.






Some pictures from 2012.

Because the Joliet Historical Society has volunteered to be the home of the Rebellion, I thought it might be nice to try to do something for them.

I scanned this article out of the local paper (sorry that my scanner was too small to get the entire front page article).




Note that they are trying to raise $5,000.00 to restore this marker.
I thought that maybe volunteering to raffle a few items at the Rebel Base for this venture might be a nice gesture on our part.


The Historical Museum also has been kind enough to provide thier rooftop area for our after party and even supply some of the items needed.

Thoughts?

Lol, you automatically think that a "no post" means no one is interested! Sheesh miss negativity. I won't really be doing much for the Base because I'll have my art booth to be focusing on. I don't own anything to "raffle off" either. If I bought it, I want it. I'm not a collector like a lot of guys. I think it would a great idea to raise money but I honestly have no ideas as to how...

Yes...
no post means no interest in my book...

how can one move forward when no one supports an idea...
and how does one support an idea?
by posting that "I support this idea"....

One thing I had thought of to raffle off was something that is a symbol of us and something many Base members can contribute to..
and...
that is a costume...

I happen to have an extra size Medium Orange flightsuit and flak vest in my stash...the flak vest is not something that is approvable anymore...it is one of the newer versions...but...we could make sure that it says "cosplay and not eligible for RL approval"...

if people have extra Pilot stuff to contribute...we could put together as much of a "costume" as we can....and raffle that off.


and...
to whet your appetite a bit...

I am starting to think of the display for the Rebellion...
I want to put out some really neat stuff...

so...
this is the first pieces going into the box o stuff for display at the Rebel Base




That little torch is one of my favorite gizmos...
and the restraining bolt is one that the one guy at Discovery World was making on that 3D cutter...this one came out defective....so...he gave it to me..

Second display item:





Kind of thought it might be neat to give kids something to do with this little display and that would be to figure out that the Bunker Blaster actually says: Schph Gochi in aurebesh..
and to also let them translate their own name into the language of Star Wars...

Working on ideas for part of the display...
was not able to get the lockers I wanted so I pulled a shelving unit out of my basement...
cleaned it up...
and..

That's all your bringing? Mr. Green

I am still keeping my fingers crossed that I will be there. I am finished with the overtime but I would be working afternoon shifts that weekend. I traded shifts to work a double shift Friday afternoon/ night. I will be tired, but I should be there (just maybe not real early). I might miss the parade (I will need to sleep at least a little bit) but I should be there for the rest.
