Well, it is finished...I DON'T WANT TO GO HOME! *sigh* This was so much fun! I am going to be really dissappointed when I finally realize that this is not a dream and I do have to go back. O, and here is an update on the pics. http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/nc_ruhk/album?.dir=/ad7e&.src=ph

This was one of the best events I've ever been a part of! I can't thank Carrie enough for making it all possible.

That was ABSOLUTELY amazing, you guys. I only got to watch it from the seats, but I thought it went extrememly well! We'll have to try and do something like this again.



And everyone in the show did an amazing job!!! Thanks for letting me come and see you all perform!

Carrie, the table looks AWESOME!


Bring that stuff to COSI. I don't know if we'll have a table or not, but I don't want to not have stuff that looks that good there!


Great work, everyone.

Looks like you guys had a really good time; wished I could have made it (hurt myself at work playing basketball...long story). I was SO looking forward to spending some time with Mirax and the gang!


Looking through the pics, noticed that Em and I made it in the display (C3 with Jay Laga'aia) so at least we're there in one manner of speaking?

Great pics, Susie! I've got this idea for making a more life-size Wicket that I might have to work on...If I do, he could come visit AT-ST Jon from time to time.



I was in contact with the folks from Kessel Base where the final shows of this concert will be performed. Anthony D. is narrating for them. You know what that means. No stage time for RL folks.



I think we really had a unique and special opportunity with 'our' shows. The DSO could hardly have been more accomodating or receptive to our ideas. I will never forget Maestro Kunzel encouraging the audience to applaud for us during the Encore. He didn't have to be so welcoming, but he was. I felt like we were treated as fellow performers instead of being looked down on as weird geeks. This has been a nearly magical experience!



So, a few last thoughts...



We've got to get Heath to come out for more events! It doesn't get much better than a functional R2 unit! Saturday's crowd really enjoyed having R2 roaming around in the lobby!



Hearing comments from audience members like: "This is one of the best shows the DSO ever put on." and "I've never seen the movies, but now I'm going to go watch them." (from an 80-year-old lady) made every bit of the planning worth it.



Despite our lack of numbers in Michigan, the RL was very well represented! Susie and I tried to recruit anyone who would listen. I think we've got several really likely prospects. I hope we'll see them pop up here soon. And, maybe we'll also get appearance requests from some new organizations because of all the business cards that disappeared off the table.



I'm just starting to feel normal again and get my voice back, but at the same time, I miss the hype and excitement. I'm looking forward to the next biggie - COSi!



Regards,

M.

I will definitely come to MI the next chance I get for something like that(or not remotely similar). You guys were great! You didn't know me, but you made me feel welcome! I had a great time spending time with all of you! Hope to meet you guys (and gals) again!

BOOYAH!



Photos are online. I didn't take many, obviously. But I like the ones I took. Great costumes, good times.



Next time, I'm so in costume and in there.

The Midwest Garrison has begun an awesome quarterly newsletter to showcase major events around the region. There is an article and pictures from the DSO event included in the Spring Edition that you might enjoy!



I will be printing a copy to send to the DSO as a thank-you.



Regards,
