A message from ID-3966:

Peter Mayhew at ACME Comics Sioux City, IA June 21st

Yes, you read it right:

Peter "Chewbacca" Mayhew will be appearing at ACME Comics & Collectibles in Sioux City, IA on Saturday June 21st from 10:30 to 5:00.

My wife and I have been working long and hard getting this one organized with Peter and his wife and are now finially making the official announcement to the Central Garrison and Rebel Legion. We have many plans for the day that just do not include the signing, some of which we are still working on.

We are very community friendly at our store and we love giving back to the community that has supported us for many years and this is one way we are going to say "thank you" to the city. Our basic plans are to block off the parking lot and have a huge celebration for everyone. We are hoping for kid's costume contests, trivial contests and many, many other things. Of course, we will be raising money for the Make A Wish Foundation at the same time. Like I said, we are very community friendly and want to give back when we can.

So, here is my official invitation for all troopers and Legion members in the area to come up and have a good time with Chewbacca and us. The CG and Rebel Legion members have become a second family to my family and I and this is part of my "thank you" to all of you.

Plus, after the event, all troopers and legion members as well as their family members are welcome to come out to eat with Peter and the ACME crew to celebrate the day. We are still working on the pricing for the meal, but will keep it as inexpensive as possible while making it a nice meal.

Like I said before, there is much more information to come later.

$140? It's just up in SC, Iowa, or do you drive bigfoot! Very Happy

We're setting up the Imperial Training Academy like we did for Dundee Days. We've got a section for target practice, and lightsaber training. Hopefully Rob will do the saber section (Obi or Dooku), and a RFT would be cool in the target practice area (it really needs 2 people).

Or if one of you wants to head up the trivia or costume contest, that's cool too. We've got enough of our hands full with the Training area, it would be good if you guys could organize that on your end.

Any ideas? And also, and idea of who all's gonna be out?

Rolling Eyes My poor attempt at sarcasm... Very Happy

Rob and are are going to car pool up for sure. I believe he said Obi was in order...

I'll be doing the RFT. I'll see if I can get some more Rebel activity books like was at FCBD and I have some "targets" around here some where.

I'm pretty sure I can hook you up for all the times you've hooked me up. Smile

To bad it sounds like I'll have to retract my offer to help you move... Evil or Very Mad Very Happy

If anyone else needs an autograph and can't make it to the event, I would be more than happy to help out.

Also, we're working on the after signing dinner, so if anyone wants to attend, please let me know how many and I'll make sure you're in. Right now we are thinking it will be right at $20 per person including tip and that it is at one of our best steak places in town.

I just also wanted to thank everyone who is planning on coming to this event or has helped us in any way get this off the ground. I definately could not have done this without your support!!

Looks like I'm going to be missing this one also and every other road trip I had planned over the next few months. Dawn had a major relapse with her MS so I'll be home taken care of her and pets.

Rob, I do have some goodies for you to take along. Let me know when I can drop them by.

I just wanted to personally thank all of the Rebel Legion members who attended the event. All of the kids flipped out during the Light Sabre training with Obi-Wan and Darth Vader. I think that I heard more about that than I did having Peter in the store.

Thanks again for all of the hard work!!
