Yes, you read that date correctly. One of the 501st MI Squad members is getting an early start on planning an event in the Grand Rapids area. (That is on the west side of Michigan. Hold up your left mitten, point to the knuckle where your hand and ring finger meet. That's roughly where GR is.)
This is just in the planning stages, but the event organizers were very excited to hear about our groups! They even suggested bringing in an SW celebrity at their expense! That is currently being pursued.
They will be arranging display space and likely a room off of their main exhibit area for us to set up a photo booth and collectibles display. We will be doing some type of charity collection like a donation to a specific charity or a toy for Toys for Tots in exchange for a photo. Details on all that will be determined closer to the event.
For now, please mark this date on your calanders and seriously consider coming! (Especially you Hoosier and Illini types! This is closer to you than many Michigan events.) The formalness hasn't been determined yet, but it will probably be one spot per face character (with back-ups if anyone wants to trade shifts for popular costumes). The organizer is hoping for a large variety of costumes if possible.
